I am disappointed on the new Pilot Rating System.
I am part of the Vatsim training program in my division with a rank of
P4 and an S3 as an ATC.
We saw those changes coming in just two months with email and info.
We understand by reading the new policy that the level of demand to
achive those new rankings has become really difficult for people that
apply in their spare time and mostly on budget simulation.
Even for us, trainer the demand for knowledge and software licence is
really too much to ask and in terms of privacy we face many barriers
and furthermore  we are not real pilots with a CPL but the request of
the new ranking is the same as to be a real one's.
I always thought that to attract people in every division is to create
a social network where the division benefits and raise the quality and
find adhesion.
The small division has lots of difficulties to raise the traffic and
teach knowledge by the lack of people and resources, so at the end of
the game and every time only larger division can grow and furthermore
only on those divisions you can find ATC and traffic.
What really astonishes me is that Vatsim was always on the optic of
open arms and be respectful for every level of skill but with those
new rules is becoming a more skilled network instead of the old
philosophy.

I was in the middle of preparing for the P3 exam when Vatstar closed it down due to these Vatsim changes. I then looked into alternatives (Pilotedge) to find similar training opportunities.
