Just some quick feedback on moderating in Civil Aviation. Today I had two threads I was really interested in, one about odd departure procedures out of Kennedy this morning:viewtopic.php?t=1392461
And then this one about jetliner types that have been fully withdrawn from use:viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1392445
Both got moved out of CivAv, the Kennedy ops one to TechOps, and the retired types on to Polls and Prefs. They clearly fit in the other forums they got moved to, but doing so gives those threads a lot less play on the site. Additionally, by moving these slightly more niche discussions out of CivAv, it makes CivAv more dominated by these long threads that often end up in toxic flame wars about A v. B or United or Detroit or whatever the latest conflict is. It feels like the moderating has been a bit more aggressive lately, moving the somewhat more narrow threads out of CivAv. I would like to push the mods to consider letting some of these more geek threads stay in CivAv. They attract less flame, and it seems like the more we can all do to keep a.net more about information and less about internet drama the better.
Thank you to the mods as always for doing the work you do!
