Re: New Members Posting For First Time

So I'm wondering will this be for new members going forward, or will it include people who have recently had their first post. I signed up for a photo account several years ago and only started posting recently.

Would this affect someone like me?
KORD > RJAA > KORD day trip? Why not! The beauty of non-reving.
Yes, I use ICAO codes
Flown: PA-28, PA-38
Passenger on: A319/A320 737, 747, 757, 767, 777, 787-8
Finally got on a 747!

I work for United Airlines, but I don't speak for the company.

It would only apply to new members. Once a membership fee is introduced it would apply to new members who join after that date.

So there are members with split personalities, interesting. :covereyes: A good and a bad one, an A and B fanboy. They could even insult themselves or applaud. :eyebrow:

Thanks moderators checking this out & keeping everything under control. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Then why not use Google Translation, or something similar, before posting, thus making your English and grammar perfect!


That'd be hilarious ( just from munging domain specific vocabulary only ).

Waiter: Sure, just follow me to the kitchen.

Does that apply to all first posts or only new threads?

How many posts from new members will need to be approved?

I just made my second post but that is awaiting approval.

This will be my third post and I'm about to press the 'SUBMIT' button as an experiment to see if this will also need approval.

Your first two posts must be approved before going live.

Well I for one did not pay to post some responses even if they were helpful and I contacted the posters via PM to give them the information or advice directly. I don't believe that for me to give out helpful information or advice I have to pay. I appreciate the decision of new management to make posting free.

Been lurking as a reader since 2002. I've seen a lot of good info posted and a lot of misinformation posted over the years Like another poster stated, for the few number of times I would post per year, it wouldn't be worth the price of admission. Now, at least if there is something I think is important enough to reply to, I can.

I have to concur with Rubio: I've shied away from posting here because of the pay model. Many times I've seen a thread on which I have personal knowledge or experience, or wanted to ask a question to further the discussion, but the fee-based model drove me away from involvement.

I understand ZeeZoo's concerns, but think there's some merit to both sides of the coin. On the one hand, the fee model keeps any idiot with a keyboard from posting tripe. But it does keep some with knowledge, experience, and interest sitting on the sidelines.
