The top priority of NYCAviation is to be a place for enthusiasts to come and be able to enjoy aviation with like-minded people. Our Message Board is the nucleus of the community, where people can interact and share in our passion for all that flies.
People's comfort is key. Every single member needs to feel welcome here. We have been experiencing an influx of new memberships, and I want everyone to be able to join the dicsussions, have fun and get along with others with minimal hiccups.
I am in the process of making revisions and additions to the Forum Rules, but effectively immediately, there are to be zero degrading comments made towards any other member on the forums or in PM. Quite simply, if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all.
If there is a member that asks a question that you feel should be "obvious", unnecessary remarks in response will result in deletions or even immediate bans. We should be ready to welcome and educate newcomers or anyone who wants to learn and take part in our hobby, and if you're not willing to help people, don't say anything. If someone is posting too many threads with questions or if there's an issue with these post, send me a message or email and I will address it myself.
If any person annoys you, as stated in another thread, you can also utilize the "Foe" feature. If there is a problem with another member, don't reply to them, but contact ME instead. I will review and address every question that comes my way.
We know we joke around with friends and poke at each other and have many laughs and good times, but it is known and obvious when it's a joke and when it is not. There is no need for the latter. There is to be no abuse or ridicule of members in threads or PM.
We are all on the same team. Let's all please treat each other like that.
