Since it seems some members are complaining about #real-world-aviation being a news outlet, some of us actually enjoy reading aviation related news articles made by forum members. A solution to this problem could be a #real-world-aviation:news subcategory. This way, people could mute the category so they don’t have to see these topics. There could be some guidelines to these news topics, as @SingaporeAirlines brought up below:
- At least two images/photos of the subject
- At least 100 words on the subject in your own words
- At least 2 sources to creditable websites
- Subject has to have some meaningful form (NOT eg. Light plane crash, all onboard survived)
That would be nice! I like having all my news in one place.
As long as it won’t be a piece of link without a substance then I would be okay with this idea 😊
And of course, a true story with evidence as a proof 😉
Exactly, something with diagrams or photos, a paragraph of information and links.
Better idea, use these links instead of posting every single news story to the forum: 😁 I even made it a wiki to help you guys out. 😉
But this ruins the whole idea of this topic
This allows for more of a discussion to take place, where we can share opinions on the story.
It was a simple apology. Arrogance was not intended…
I agree as well. Something needs to be done.
This topic turned sour fast 😂
He agrees… and that’s why there should be a subcategory. If you want news topics banned, you belong in the other topic. You do know if have a PM going with Wombat?
I agree with this as I follow news closely
Thank you! I appreciate your kind words.
Plus, it would declutter the RWA category.
Please do not delete what is in the wiki I created. You are to add content and contribute in a meaningful way. Thank you. 😊 Have a good evening/day wherever you’re at in the world. Don’t start problems.
The problem is, I can easily access aviation news websites myself. You are not contributing to my original post in a meaningful way. I know there are websites out there, but my post is requesting a news category on this forum.
Topic flagged for closure.
