Default Rego Requests

It's about that time of year again where we need to question the existence of requests for registrations of upcoming flights. Please vote in the poll and/or discuss in this thread.

I think this should only apply for requests on upcoming flights, requests for flights that have already been operated (and therefore not requiring access to airline systems and more likely to get a response) should be exempt from the outcome of this poll (open for discussion).

They should be banned.Only use band width and aircraft change anyway.People should wait till they arrive at the airport and then they will find out.

Ban them or tie them all into a nice little sticky thread where all the little rego chasers can post to their hearts content and those of us who aren't into that kind of thing can simply use the "ignore" feature and be done with it..

I saw the title of this thread and thought this would be the perfect place to ask, does anyone know the rego of the aircraft operating QF501 to Sydney tomorrow morning?

Oh, wrong thread? Sorry!

Humour aside, the number of rego requests is so small does it really matter where they are posted? That said, the logic behind a dedicated rego requests forum is a very astute idea and should be applauded. It removes them from the mainstream "Spotting and Movements" forum.

So anyway, back to the QF501 tomorrow..... anyone?

There's very little point to asking for a registration before you're on the aeroplane. Aircraft get swapped around so often, right up to (and sometimes even after) doors-closed. What was scheduled to operate a service a week or a few days or even a few hours out can often bear very little resemblance to what actually ends up doing the flight. Aeroplanes break down, come in late or get stuck somewhere inconvenient through weather or volcanic ash. Swaps get made to try and rescue the schedule, and keep being made as situations develop further.

So while in and of themselves, rego requests cause very little harm, they are for any practical purpose completely useless.

In my opinion a rego request relates to a movement, therefore I see no issues leaving it the current Spotting and Movements Forum. Although perhaps a monthly sticky to consolidate would be a good idea.

I agree that a monthly sticky for all would be the best way, just like the deliveries.

I count three on the first page, with one of them being posted today (after my original post). Symantics really.

Lets look at the month of June:

Request 1
Request 2
Request 3
Request 4
Request 5
Request 6
Request 7
Request 8

The above ONLY includes requests for flights that have not yet been operated. Requests for information from years gone by or general requests for rego information (as I consider acceptable in the "Spotting and Movements" forum in the boards current form) have been excluded.

On the whole, 8 posts (out of how many total posts?) in the month of June is really quite minimal.

A separate forum, for all rego requests, really is a smart solution that will surely please everyone.

Speaking of symantics...

What's the difference between creating a seperate 'sub forum' and a monthly 'sticky' thread?

One looks prettier than the other? Didn't realise we're participating in a beauty pagent..
