edit: if being mean on the interwebs keeps kids crying for 120s on hogs out, im all in.

Is it a bird, is it a plane, NOPE just my point flying way over your head :thumbup:

I'll just pop this on a simmer and come back later and see if it has been closed

If a proper question is being asked, proper answers will be given, like here for example: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?p=4339022

Ranting about missing AMRAAMs for an A-10 on the other hand is not what I consider "asking a question" and gets a different kind of responses obviously.

Not always true unfortunately mate. Often the information is hard to get at. Very often things get personal and out of order very fast and i don't think it would be a hard thing for ED to manipulate the forum away from. Maybe temporary banning is an option? I wouldn't like that but if it is easier and gets a point across then... yeah? :huh:

Not everybody has the same skill, knowledge or IQ level unfortunately. Some are challenged with additional support needs and some do not speak english natively so do not come across as intended......etc

I guess i am just banging my head against the wall of humanity now though huh :doh:

Comments as above about condoning online bullying to keep simpler minds out is just not on and solidifies my point that systems need put in place/managed more efficiently.

Ramble ramble ramble....

ED is already (temporarily) suspending posting rights for people that show disrespectful behaviour.

Of course, missunderstandings because of these things do happen unfortunately. Sometimes its just stubborn ignorrance though.

Maybe a bit. Criticsm must still be allowed if it's valid and doesn't get personal. This is not the hippie flower wonder land after all ;)

Amen to that! Additionally, criticizing a statement must not be conflated with criticizing a person. There is a distinct difference between the two

Exactly! :thumbup:

When designing your new forum layout, could you incorporate a method of posting a question to ED which DOES NOT ALLOW other users to chip in with their tuppence worth?
This is an interesting idea actually but would need one MAJOR thing:

Developer's TIME to answer questions, and that I am sure is not the only thing.

There is a thread in Russian section - Questions to developers and ED devs are posting there, but only if the question is easy to answer (not too time-consuming / not generating controversy).

Maybe it is a good idea but it all depends on questions quality as well.

That's one thing I thought about but didn't mention- it doesn't make business sense for Ed to have someone on the payroll answering questions that could be taken care of for free by other forum members

Secondly , that would quickly overwhelm Ed and other devs getting bogged down answering every question that comes along, when there are plenty of people on forum who are more than happy to help

But if that were the case then they would not offer the support tickets as pointed out to me earlier.
These guys are already working on the payroll, i believe my idea would enable them to work smarter but that is for ED to decide.


I see the point made above by ngreenaway and it's are not wrong but unfortunately the line is too thin as to what is deemed acceptable conduct and what is not therefor more often than not people are free to dish out quite personal ridicule and more often than not it is noobs that get it.

I have never heard of support tickets until now but i sure as hell had heard grumblings about the DCS forums before now and that should really change.

Keep the attitude for Hoggit threads and other harder to reach places i guess.
