Hello! 

First, I believe that these words are true: "The more people, the more fun." 

But there is simply a somewhat itching feeling- or as the title says- a concern that our VATSIM world drifts a bit towards an acarde flight game if the entry is too easy. 

I hope that all the regulations and requirements for vatsim stay valid when the new sim comes and that there is the possibility to at least easily report "players" when they are not willed to stay inside the rules of vatsim. 

As I now have seen very positive but also negative reactions about this development I wanted to know what you guys think?

I think the standard will remain the same. And people who aren't up to the standard will not be comfortable using VATSIM until they are more knowledgeable.

From what I've seen, FS2020 looks like it aims to be a realistic simulator to at least the same degree as FSX; yes, it probably also appeals to "gamers", but as long as it can provide the realism that is needed for something like vatsim, I don't think there is a serious risk. We kick people for doing grossly unrealistic things no matter the sim, I don't think this will be any different with yet another simulator on the network.

Don't forget the upcoming changes to the P ratings and in particular, the P0 rating which will be required if a member wants to fly on the network. So in future, new pilots should demonstrate some basic knowledge before being allowed on the network.

Furthermore, supervisors are not there to be the bad cops and kick people. Most of all, we are online to help. If a member needs support while connected to the network, they can call for a supervisor to help them. For example, yesterday, I had a lovely educational chat with a new member about flight planning. "Aviate Educate Communicate" 😁

I know that the mandatory entry quiz for new members (P0) is slated to roll out on September 1st -- but with this announcement, it sure would be nice to accelerate that by a couple weeks to August 18th.

I've heard through the rumor mill that the above advice is being heeded (whether because I posted it or because the powers that be had already come to the same conclusion; either way is fine with me).  But is that true?  The post in "Announcements" still says September 1st.  As someone who does his best to help new members and give them accurate information, it'd be nice to get this confirmed from an official source. 

Cheers,

The program is scheduled for release at or before august 18th. 🙂 The exact date is not set yet.
