We have had a rise in virtual airline accounts recently. We do allow these to be created as long as they are kept at one per virtual airline. We will not remove them as a duplicate as long as they are kept to moderate levels. Users found with multiple VA accounts will likely have several of them removed.
What can I use for VA account for?
VA accounts are only allowed for posting in two categories. These are #live:va and #live:events. VA accounts found to be posting in categories out of these face the same consequences as personal accounts. VA accounts are allowed as a kind gesture by the moderators, so please do not abuse this or we will remove them without notice.
I can’t saying they are “copying” from @QantasVirtualGroup 😉 . @QantasVirtualGroup was the pioneer of this idea but that doesn’t mean the rest VA accounts are the result of a copycat. Sometimes, having an account specialized for Virtual Airline is easier in terms to manage the administration and the communication of a virtual airline 😊
I dont really find it actually necessary to have a VA account, its basically useless since people who are into the VA section know peoples roles and affiliations with VAs. It also doesn’t really help managing imo, since its more difficult to handle 2 accounts instead of one personal where people face a clear individual instead of a bot-like “support” reply. So in the end its a good step by the mod team, I appreciate it :)
I find it far more important that the VA staffs’ personal accounts are more active rather than a specific VA account. I just dont really see the purpose of a VA account when everything it does can be handled by the VA staff.
I’m predicting a rise in VA accounts in the next 24 hours or so.
NB- If you are dealing with Me/Josh/NEO on one of these accounts we’d prefer to know who’s behind the account- as @dush19 said having the info in your bio is a very good idea, especially if more than one person is on the account.
do i really have to be trust lvl 2 before i can create a thread because i can’t even get to trust lvl 2 and i am slowly getting annoyed that i have to be a higher trust lvl so that i can do this and that. It’s almost a bit boring because there is not much to do.
