As an IFATC controller (im not the expert or the best controller), I’ve seen a lot of pilots not exiting the Runway propertly while asking a taxi clearence to parking. Probably some of those are in the forum. Allow me to do a friendly reminder on how to exit the runway propertly.
I’ve seen some players doing this: They stop in front of the hold line, and they stay there until they get the taxi clearence. This is an example:

The proper way to exit the Runway is: exiting the Runway and crossing the Hold Bars. In the Expert Server, exiting the runway and stop in front of the Hold bars can be really stressful in busy situations, especially for the aircraft on short final, who has to prepare for a Go Around; the controller, which in some cases has to warn the pilot so they cross the Hold bars and clear the Runway for the aircraft on short final. The stress can also reach the pilot itself, who eventually can get reported for “not exiting the runway” (if not action is taken obviously).
In conclusion: Please Don’t stop in front of the Hold bars. When exiting the runway, cross them. You can reduce the stress for the controllers, the aircraft on short final, and yourself.
That’s my reminder. Hope you can take it into consideration :)
Happy Takeoff, cruises and Landings. Stay safe and take care. Also a heart for those in Texas ♥️
