Is this still for fun?

A SWO is a RAF 'Station Warrant Officer', a character to be feared.

When based at Watton 3 of us got snowed-in at Swanton Morley after an evening on the piss, all that was visible of my mini was the roof aerial, they were bringing fooid supplies in by yellow helicopter from Coltishall,there we were on the phone to our Sgt. trying to explain why we couldn't come to work, he was bawling us out as the Swanton Morley SWO took the phone from us and bawled our Sgt. out, oh it was worth it

Or try to be inclusive. Some of us have gotten over it and moved on too.

Do I misunderstand the rules?

PDR - the last authoritative guidance from Senior Pilot is in my post #74 above

The mods have kept a close eye on these "Name that.." threads for the last 6 months so it's best to conform - or to quit...................

No problem - I have no desire to rock the boat, I just misunderstood the rules.

I would also point out that I only posted in response to a question from dook. The question is still in the original thread!

Yes - we all drift away from the Word I'm afraid - I've cut n/ pasted them onto my Desktop so I can stay on the straight and narrow

Thank you. I fully understand. If the T.V. game show JEOPARDY complied with PPRuNe rules, a single episode would take 5 days. I fully understand. Did I say I fully understand? Well, if I didn't, I fully understand.

Wow! The last photo of a cockpit was posted on Feb. 16th. Several DAYS ago. Now that is PERFORMANCE! Who wouldn't want to participate in this exciting, fast moving and challenging thread? Hmm... the T.V. show JEOPARDY goes through well over 50 questions in 22 minutes every day. Well, 5 days a week.

And yes, I fully understand "If you don't like it, don't participate" You are so correct. I love you. Kumbaya.

Give the time of Auxtank's response of the ATG Javelin, I am guessing dook failed to notice it.

Or am I missing some again in the rules?

Up to all of you to share with other PPRuNers or face the chop. I expect to see at least 24 hours between new entries to give those outside the UK the chance to feel part of this forum; the same applies to the other two spotters threads.
I'm confused ... Once in a blue moon do I post in the 'Which Aerodrome' thread or any other, quote, 'spotter' threads, just recently I posted a WA observataion that others paid me credit for them successfully guessing it right as if they were giving me the house, not to spoil their enjoyment I posted to tell them to carry on without me only to receive a scolding from a mod regarding the 24 hour rule.

That is two posts in that thread during 2020 and I am one of those outside the UK to be given the chance to feel part of the forum yet in trying to feel part of the forum I found myself scolded and my post removed!

Harry - the discussion has been long - it seems weird that a CORRECT answer has to wait to be confirmed where what is needed IMHO is a restriction on rapid-fire GUESSES

However a lot of people are less than happy the Mods have spoken (several times) - we have a choice of continuing on here under the rules set out or going elsewhere.

I don't think anyone is very happy but that's where we are unfortunately

A56: your last sentence is a good summary. I used to post fairly regularly on a couple of these threads, but under the current rules have reverted to being just an observer. The imposed delays have reduced the fun.

So be it...………………………..

Some sort of order is necessary and it only remains to define and implement it. I think enough of us, like Ken in the post above, are in reduced fun mode so some more thought may be necessary..
In another existence, I play on a site called Autopuzzles where we identify cars that people post. We have a scoring system-based heirarchy ("rookie", "expert", "professional" and "master") with puzzles starting at "rookie" where newcomers alone may guess/answer, then moving up as and when the originator chooses.
It can work well, but the downside is that those of us who score well end up only being allowed to answer the really obscure puzzles that have foxed everyone!
You can't run such a system here but if someone were to set up an "Aeropuzzles" site, it could be quite successful.

Am I allowed to post here twice within 24 hours?

In fairness I did observe that some, I recall a minority, were posting and posting as if they were a machine gun but a common sense rule should apply, all I posted was an observation and then a "carry on" and I got caned for the 24 hour rule, I was walking away from the thread for the mods to come chasing after me.

Alas this is the world we find ourselves living in, robotic programming, yes I have experienced their attitude "that if you don't like it etc." previously but then once upon a time I enquired regarding commercially advertising here and they justify their high prices based on the number of members they have, yes they have a price on our heads!

Harry Wayfarers you seem to have a different recollection of events to those in our records. Not one of your posts is deleted within this forum: all remain online for all (including you) to see.

Moderators have far better things to do than 'come chasing after you'. You are quite correct that this restriction was to contain the few members who spoiled the threads for others, despite being advised on many occasions: we may well remove them and the reason for the restrictions, but time will tell. It tends to be the same members who choose 'not to understand' and make life difficult for others.

As for nonsensical comments about not posting here within 24 hours, feel free to obey your own rules: they aren't those of this Forum.

I for one, have not been here for long - I do enjoy the challenges - I have yet to witness anyone from > UTC +/- 3 HRS complaining that the Challenge/ Response is unfair in terms of the Time Zone difference.
Perhaps SeniorPilot could ellaborate on the evidence of his assertions and, following Harry's comments assert that they are credible and relevant.
I ask, as ever, only for information.

Auxtank.

Harry W, you can post as may submissions as you want in the `spotting` threads,but nobody will have a correct answer given until 24 hrs have passed...clues may be offered/denied/changed in that timeframe,apart from a confirmation of the correct answer....so feel free to post...
,
And for anybody else,suggest you watch the `Tiger Club`,the Early Days``,when life was more FFFUUUNNN`,Airshows were not constrained by thick books of regulations/regulators,more by `awaremanship`/commonsense,and scrutiny by your peers...and in most cases `we` were paying to fly the aircraft, as well..no sponsors, .

ps..the video is on the link at the `sticky ,top of Forum.....
