Too heavy-handed Mods. Bring in Wholi.

I agree with much of what Grizzled posted but TBH I have never seen any racial slurs on here - as opposed to Jet Blast................

I do understood the reasons for the Moderator's stance but, could it not be argued that those contestants in other time zones have an advantage when a new challenge is posted in the evening or late night - when all of us in the Greenwich +/- 2 hour zone are taking a rest from it ?

Oh the British and their sense of fair play and inclusivity, it really will be your undoing.

So, now we wait 12 or 24 hours? I am not sure. Other than time zone considerations, what could the reason be? The majority of PPRuNers reside in the U.K. and Continental Europe. North America ranks a distant second, and the professional pilot population residing in Asia and Australia are nearly a forgotten third. So why wait for a small minority? Just asking. I am quite tolerant and patient.

Your repetitive criticism and querying of the 24 hour rule is becoming tedious, even if you do delete your posts after making them. If you cannot calculate a day from the time and date of the question, then PPRuNe and AH&N is obviously not for you.

There are PPRuNers around the world, and this forum is not the exclusive domain of UK and/or Europe. It has been explained before that attitudes such as yours, seeking to exclude/diminish the large number of Australian, NZ, Asian and American members, is the reason behind the 24 hour requirement.

If you cannot accept this minor ruling then please find another outlet for your online activities.

If my interpretation of the rules is correct then a UK-based player may not respond to an OH for 24 hours.

Not just UK based participants IIRC - no-one can confirm a correct answer until 24 hours have passed from the OP

Thanks 56 - I am aware of that.

I only want to know what we can do after the OP has declared.

Once the OP has confirmed a winner (after 24 hours since first post) anyone can post if it's OH - he never gave any time restriction other than the 24 hours...............

"Senior Pilot said (What Cockpit post # 1350 07/01/20) "Quite simply, you can post and discuss to your heart's content from the moment a challenge appears, but the declaration of a winner will not occur until 24 hours has elapsed. This applies to all three competition threads: a reference Wiki also covers the airfield thread.I would emphasise that all threads should respect that this is the Aviation History & Nostalgia forum with an expectation of historic images and/or subjects please."

For a thread, I find the rules too restrictive, convoluted and not easily accessible. What was once kinda sorta fun, is no longer. From now on, I'll just watch, thanks.

That is a great pity.

I am a subscriber to another site which has no moderation other than the common sense and integrity of its' members.

Surely the Mods don't come down here to Hist and Nost, Asters - I mean, well, there can't be very much for them to moderate. Can there?

Besides, aren't they all kept frightfully busy up at R & N sorting the wheat from the chaff, as it were....

I think you should tell some players here what a SWO is.
