  1. This thread is now reaching its end of usefulness, to be quite honest. We can argue all day about how we go about these things, but in the end we all agree that being accepting of others and accommodating where possible is the best way to go about it. A rule I live by is that even if I don't understand something, I listen to people who do and have lived experiences of it. I'll never know what it's like to be discriminated against because of my gender identity status (out of pure luck), but I need to listen to people who do. It's the same for everything. Open mindedness goes a long wa
  2. Wow a 152 CID with a C1????? That goes against VATSIM science!!!!!
  3. That isn't the reality and doesn't help anyone who doesn't have government ID, which is a lot of trans people, for whatever reason. Be it unsupportive parents/guardians, inaccessibility to name/sex change because of the law or lack of money, or whatever.
  4. Oh another one of these posts.... I'm fairly open about my experience as a transgender woman on this network if the topic ever arises. I was lucky enough to be helped when I couldn't get legal documents at the time (recently just got my new birth certificate with my name and sex on it after years of government meddling!!) and have been fortunate enough to get called she/her and ma'am on the network because of my passing voice. That however is a fairy tale for a lot of trans people, especially trans women who are on the short end of the stick when it comes to being recognised as who t
  5. In case this hits anyone else, the date/time format for the time_logon field has changed, at least to the point where our parsing code died. Just use Carbon::parse($variable['time_logon']) and it will work. https://github.com/czqoocavatsim/czqo-core/commit/de4bb2ad253167a0430f22623015da25490849fa (Not a breaking change don't worry Jelle lol)
  6. Good point, although I still believe people recording while not doing ATC would still be fine with 2020 bandwidth
  7. Restricting "spotting" in this case would also render all connections to record time-lapses/livestreams of events against the CoC, which I think we all can agree is not beneficial for the network. We're not in the days of dial-up and bad ADSL where idle connections hogging up bandwidth was actually an issue, so I don't see why we should continue to stop people from using the network in this way. Of course keep kicking actually AFK people to avoid planes taking up gates or whatever, but I think this is entirely harmless. Sure, but again, we (at least to my knowledge) have the bandwidth
  8. Make sure you have left the server on all possible accounts you have (including the account that is currently linked, and then click the Change Account button here. It should work. If you're not able to login to the currently linked Discord account, then try a password reset or whatever through Discord.
  9. We may look at creating extra training resources for our controllers on this topic so we're both equally as prepared for the possibility ๐Ÿ˜‰
  10. I'm personally opposed to using just your CID on the network, or even hiding your last name too much. I agree that VATSIM's sense of community relies on knowing who people are, and being able to identify those people on a personal level. You can't do that with a string of 6 or 7 numbers - maybe the most you can do is figured out when they joined the network. However, especially in the age of increased privacy and the GDPR, I don't think it's reasonable to require that people expose their identity outside of the official CERT record. Some people simply don't want to be well known by their
  11. Yes of course, just let the controller know so he/she are aware of what your plans are ๐Ÿ™‚
  12. If there is an RSS feed for events (not sure if it exists) you could hook that up to one of the Discord RSS bots
  13. I think calling people sir is weird but still fine, however I still donโ€™t exactly have the confidence to correct someone on the network (especially considering my voice isnโ€™t the best still) and have it actually mean anything
  14. This got a bit more heated than I expected, but anyway lol Simon you're absolutely correct. I agree, and I'm really thankful for the positive experiences I've had here even though I'm definitely a lot more out of the ordinary
