New Forum Tags

Hi Everyone,

Today we have introduced a set of new tags for specific posts and categories on the forum. Tags are a quick way of navigating to posts that are targeted for what you are looking for without the need to search directly. They allow for a different way of categorising posts, giving forum users more flexibility. They also ensure that, at a glance, more information can be provided about a topic without having to extend the title.


Event and Group Flight Tags:

#expert - for Expert Server events
#training - for Training Server events
#casual - for Casual Server events

These can be used by any user and must form part of the posts in #live:events and #live:groupflights. You cannot currently add multiple tags and only one may be used per topic (subject to change).

Example tag


Route Tag for Database Topics

#routes - used for aircraft route database topics

This tag allows you to find community-made route databases for specific aircraft at a click of a button. We may add more tags to the parent tag group (database) for sets of topics in the future. This tag is visible to all, but only staff and moderators can add it.


We may look to add more to other categories/post groups in the future. Please help each other with these new tags and allow for mistakes by new members. You can find all the public tags by heading to the menu in the top right-hand corner and selecting tags.

Very efficient now, since we don’t have to scroll down the topic.

Nice addition! I noticed @lucaviness changed my event tag, so I was a bit confused, all understood now.

This one will be my favorite by far. Thank you so much Misha for adding this. It will be super helpful.

Not sure if this is anything related to this, but my dark mode is having issues. It’s changing from some parts of the UI disappearing to the black getting lighter.

Jason is updating dark mode settings. You can find the topic linked below.

So no it’s not related.
