There have been crazier topics, so I feel safe to post this one…
I am one of those pilots who started on IF Live not ‘hindered’ by any knowledge whatsoever.
I didn’t really take the time to figure out how the IF app worked; didn’t know how you could see other aircrafts. Also I had no awareness of the concept of general flight rules, violations etc.
I was one of this pilots we now refer to as noobs and nimrods. I didn’t want to be, but I just was; I just didn’t have a clue.
At that time there was no casual server (I think), so by the time I found out how things worked, I had collected an impressive amount of violations. I estimate that 95% of the violations I have, I collected during the first few months. But you can’t get rid of them, can you. No mercy here - your sins stay with you forever!
How do you deal with this? Any old Grade 5’s here, with over 150 violations? How do you sleep?
Have you ever considered asking for clemency for your early violations?
Or… have you ever considered to open a new account, and start again?
Please do not take this topic more serious than it’s meant to be ;-)
