Welcome to the screenshots forum - read this before posting


Recommended Posts

I think this may have been what my friend I had lunch with the other day (a fellow flight simmer) was eluding to when he said the reason he doesn't use VATSIM is the people are "anal retentive". In regards to the controlling side of things, I don't agree....but I could see where the impression could stem from the way these forums are run at times. Personally I could give a flying rat's backside.....but it might turn some people away from the service.

I disagree very much with you and your friend.

 

Personally, I find rules and laws very useful at keeping order and fairness, so long as they are enforced anyway. The longer that a rule goes unenforced, the sooner that rule becomes meaningless. Just as an example, look at America's illegal immigration problem. The laws were there, the enforcement was lacking.

 

In this case, I see Norman's reminder as a helpful nudge toward enforcement of existing rules, and therefore, a good thing.

The thing that is beginning to worry me, is that this forum area is now becoming a "web design" area. With people now taking requests to edit each others photos.

 

I thought the purpose of this forum was to show your best pictures that YOU took.

 

Now I see numerous designers doing the same pictures over and over again trying to out compete one another.

 

Don't know if anyone agrees with me, but it seems to be back tracking a bit.

it's beginning to turn into a typical forum like FSW where people bitch (the only good word to use to the occasion) about each other and their photos...i saw it slowly happening and abandoned the screenshot forum as I don't wanna go there...I had it there, it wasn't here before and why should it...people truly are showing their best shots even if they have onboard graphics and they got jaggies everywhere...the idea seemed so great and yes in a way it was needed but now it's lost the inspiration it had

Ruth / Norm...

 

There seems to be a lot of stupid critical chat creeping into the threads; telling people how to fly, degeneration to grammar nazis, nitpicking of irrelevant issues... basically a bunch of kids trying to show how much better they are by picking out all the errors or problems in others posts... not necessary IMO.

So here are the rules for posting pics! I wonder why I didn't see that in the first place!

 

From now on, any pics more than 10 that I post will be posted on Flyaway, which is another Flightsim website.

 

Just to be sure that I'm following the rules, is that okay to post VATSIM pics on another website or will I be violating the rules?

Being new to the General Screen Shots Forum I read Ruths listing of the rules. I just took it for granted that this is the way to do it!!.

I then read the posts. Posts 1 to 9 seem to be from fairly mature minds .

After Ruths thank you post, attitude started to go downhill and some of the posts seem to have arrived from some nursery school.

I have only made a couple of posts however I find all the pics interesting, all the critisism good fun, all the semi pro stuff clever, some of the comments

are really funny.

Going from the post dates it looks as though the children are fed up of moaning

 

So keep up the good work Ruth.

 

I WANT LOTS OF CRITICISM AND COMMENTS ON ANY FUTURE POSTS OF MINE

may i post a picture from a different flight sim... it doesn't have vatsim but the pictures are so much better. i won't enter them into the competition or anything

 

May I point out item 1 of the first post in this thread

 

1. Screenshots must be VATSIM related

 

Now we can't actually police that as there's no way to tell if a particular screenshot is VATSIM related, but this IS a VATSIM forum so we do rely on our members to use it as such. There are plenty of other forums on the internet where you can post non-VATSIM stuff.
