My ad blocker had stopped working.

Now sorted.

Thumbs down Repetitive promotional posts shouldn't be allowed

I don't mind notification to members that joyflights are available, or even the occasional reminder post, but in my view Danny's multiple repetitive promotional posts for his joyflights are excessive in this thread: http://yssyforum.net/board/showthread.php?t=6306

Wink No wine!

Not a whine - just an admin policy opinion, Steve, which is why it's in this thread.

Just a thought...

Perhaps if Danny contributed more to the board than just the incessant model show threads, either by general discussion in one of the many other threads and topics (yes, I acknowledge there has been the odd post here and there) or perhaps monetary payment to the boards admins for the very long-term advertising of the show, then Phil might view things a little differently?

I have to agree though, 5 months solid of posts about this years show in the lead up to it is quite excessive.

I tend to respect everyones right on this board to voice their opinions...

BUT, the way in which Danny has 'advertised' the Show, is in my opinion, OK in that IF I did not want to read about it, then I would not read about it in the same way people do NOT always read about rego requests... There is a sticky post there that says:
Quote:
This will then keep the thread clearly identified as an Aircraft Registration Request thread, whereby giving those users who choose not read those particular threads, plenty of warning that it is actually a rego request thread; thus alleviating those users of the stress and pain of actually opening and reading it
I have seen him contribute here and there in other areas and maybe yes, further contribution is needed, but at the end of the day if you do not want to read about it, theres a little function that says 'Mark This Forum Read' under the Forum Tools dropdown...

$0.02 worth...

The admin view of it was that if Danny kept it all in a single thread it was fine, that way if you're not interested, you only have had to ignore one thread.

That said I'm sure next time we organise a spotting weekend, Danny will be happy to offer some support.

Also I must mention that we don't condone the use of ad blockers, as that is the only revenue stream supporting the hosting and associated forum costs of the board.

I think what many fail to realise is that without the ads and sponsorship, we simply would not have a forum at all due to the high yearly running costs, which I believe is a few hundred dollars a year!
