Gents-

 

For the entirety of the time in which PMDG has hosted our forums at AVSim, we have required users to sign their posts.

 

We do not care if you are 12 and can't remember to towel off after a shower before putting your clothes on.

We do not care if you are 75 and think rules are for teenagers.

We do not care if you are a head of state, movie star or famous footie player.

We do not care if you test fly every airplane that comes out of both airbus and boeing.

We do not care if you a third world dictator with a bad haircut and a funny suit.

 

Sign your posts in this forum, or we will remove the posts without comment or question.

 

If you are a multiple violator, we will take steps against your user account up to and including banning.

 

It isn't hard...  In the airline business we call this "Comply or Die." 

 

(And if you are a famous footie player- we might actually give you some leeway- but only if you come hang with us during a company outing...)  :ph34r:

It's not that they ignore it, they just don't bother to read stickies or announcements.

They go straight to the meat of the forums and start reading/posting.

Maybe  that's right, but usually in most post there is  always some mentioning  about  signing your name thing.

If your 75, you might not be able to remember your name. Then you will need somebody to make a signature up for you, when you forget you can then make a post. Just not "When will [name of aircraft] be released"

 

When you say football, I'm guessing that you mean that game that you carry the ball in your hands, not the football that you use your foot with. Just joking before this gets into an argument!!!

 

Peace be with you.

Helps to read the forum requirements when using forums (just like it helps to read the legal documents you sign, like leases, loan docs, and other contracts)  :wink:

 

"We require this for several reasons - first and foremost we feel that it fosters a more respectful and cordial atmosphere when people speak to each other knowing who is behind each post instead of a psuedonym. I wouldn't walk up to someone in person and introduce myself as 'Tabs'...

 

Secondly, this is unfortunate but we do have a sizable number of pirates asking (sometimes even demanding outright) support for products they stole from us. Seeing names attached to support requests allows us to verify that the request is legitimate."

 

From this post (which is posted in the top level PMDG forum, and repeated in the subforums):
