Win, Win?

But here i am back seat business managing after telling somebody not to back seat business manage just the other day
I think what you are referring to is called an email. Just send the enquiry to the developers while completely bypassing the forum In it’s entirety.

Any other problems you need any assistance with, please, don’t hesitate to ask.

I think, compared to what I see on some of the other forums, people on this forum are quite forgiving actually
I agree, 100%, and despite all-pylon- spamraam a-10's misdirection, I'm glad he posted here rather than Hoggit

Still one thing about human nature is the tone of the reply is generally very reflective of the tone of the original querry or declarative statement

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?
(e.g. " If topic contains "@DEVS" close thread?? or something)

I get upset, as i am sure others do, when i see a new user (or any user really) asking what may appear a silly question to the more advanced users (or phallically challenged?) only for them to be shot down in flames and MOST LIKELY turned away from the forums, at least, and possibly the sim itself.

It can't be possible to be on top of every post made in real time and unfortunately, by the time the mods get to it, the damage has already been dealt.

So, let's come up with a solution to allow users to ask questions free from harm/

The only silly question is the one which does not get asked

TL;DR: ED please protect "grown-ups" with emotional capabilities of a six year old from being offended by mean interwebs bullies so they never ever learn to cope with "challenging feelings"™.

:State of western society 2020 meme:


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

'nuff said
Or the existing system renders your suggestion redundant?

In all reality, doesn't matter what system is in place, people -especially those new to the forum- are going to use what's easiest, whether it's the most appropriate or not. What's easiest is to post publicly, no matter how many safeguards they provide

It would certainly tidy up alot of threads and make information more accessible for all.
Half the time you see a question asked on this forum you have to scrawl through 10 pages of nonsense and backhand before you find anything worth noting.


It's not just defending the {SPAMRAAAAAMers} but tidying things up.

But here i am dumping chaff like a mofo just for even suggesting something besides the status quo.

I guess because the forum is the go to place for information and learning most people like to just post here instead.

Plus any time i wander onto the main DCS site my wallet seems to lighten significantly
