Problem: The “report” button was disabled a while ago due to abuse of the system.
Solution: Introduce a written form. Once you click the report button a transcript of Tower and Ground communication with all aircraft in the past 10 minutes will be sent in the form of an email to the email you use for your google or facebook account, along with a link to a google form. You will then fill out the form below.
I disagree, although the Expert prequisites have changed there’s still a considerable amount of aircraft on at all hours of the day. Besides, the new requirements give pilots ample time and opportunity to research and correct their mistakes.
If everyone on the Expert Server knew the procedures, you wouldn’t need it. If you need it because there are still some on Expert that don’t know proper procedure, you can’t then allow those people to report others. It’s circular logic.
You need it because people don’t know what they’re doing.
The proposed solution is to allow this same pool of people to report others.
Everyone thinks they know proper procedure. If they did, I wouldn’t have a photo gallery full of the world’s most hilariously-incompetent pilots.
There’s no way the Mods have the time to deal with this.
Especially when people think spawning at an event field when not part of the event is a reportable offense.
GMaxSez: First It was “Vigilantes”; wee one’s flying around smiteing the naredowells and unskilled. Then came the first request for the formation of an IF malitia who flew around from region to region taken names and accusing their counterparts of violations they read about in a book. These requests where by a small kid with a big personality and “small feet” who was never allowed to play with the big kids. Now we enter a new phase and become sofisticated and introduce a Google Form to Report Pilots.
Where do we go to from here. When are these wonnabe Moderators going to get it thru there head there never gonna be King or King Maker. Could this Topic be a prelude to revolution? Is there decention in the ranks? Should we replace Moderators with a paper ticket, reviewed by a machine? Please say it isn’t so!
For those in favor of this anti-social idea please take one… This novel figment of grandiose imagination will never fly:
that also can Pilot reports pilot!
That will be cool in Training server that if you have received over 3 reports, let’s say in 7 days then u will be ban to Casual server… then back again after a week!
That will improve the training server quality as we still can see ppl trolling in TRAINING SERVER!
Actually, we have strict standards about what is and is not reportable. We have to answer for any of our reports with photographic evidence, and if we report erroneously on a regular basis, we are removed from IFATC.
So, no. That’s not accurate. But nice try.
[BTW, even after you delete your reply I can still see what you wrote.]
Also, IFATC as pilots…Report button is disabled as well.
The problem is that you don’t see the number of flags that get ignored because everyone has a different defintion on what “off-topic” means. Same in the sim, people reported everyone for every little thing. The same problem will happen regardless of how.
