**So a few thoughts:
Since I started playing IF my life has changed and where most people say for the better imma say for the worse.
1.I have spent less time with friends by spending more time on a mediocre mobile flight sim and talking to a bunch of 12 year olds that know nothing about aviation and the majority of the information they receive is from an online forum where basically anyone that has spent more than 1 day complimenting random peoples topics can post whatever the f they want.
2. Ohhh the negativity
Do people honestly not realize that instead of telling people off for not knowing this little piece of information they may know about it may be more productive to inform them about it politely and nicely also all regulars below the legal drinking age in most western european countries are entitled scum that only got their title through sucking up to moderators flagging topics commenting on basic topics ”well my longest flight time is 60 years😁🤣😀😍😃😛😝☺️😛 how about yours???😘😘“ basically I think the forum should implement a couple changes the concept and the hard product are fine but what really set me off to go on this super long rant was the one time I joined a community event the event was hosted by a regular and since the event was on ts I thought it would be fun to do atc however when i started the session on approach and departure of the starting airport the event host flew in and when he ignored anything I told him to do approched on the wrong side of the runway he talked to my mate on tower and ignored the fact he wasn’t cleared to land by my mate he crashed his 737 into the ground so me and my mate quit teh session and I basically gave up on the forum and the game however I have recently decided I’d rejoin but only to play not to waste my time on here
A few more thoughts not all regulars are terrible a few are nice dudes with a vast knowledge of aviation there is a surprising amount of sexists on the IF insta
I don’t hate IF it can be pretty great I just wanted to start a discussion about the forum the regulars and the amount of time people spend on this forum also do people have nothing better to do than play this game after school I mean what happened do underage drinking EMPHESIS THE PREVIOUS FIVE WORDS NOT IN STRONG TEXT WERE A JOKE NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY
Well thats everything I have to say I hope this turns into a good discussion have a nice day. Sorry for the lack of punctuation
