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:

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.

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.

I'd like to see the $25 posting fee reinstated. Span was low back when I joined when there was a fee.

I agree completely...the issue with free membership on this site is it's an open invitation for trolls and spammers to do as they please as there is no penalty. If they get banned they just create a new gmail account and user name and keep on trolling.

There needs to be some sort of incentive to care about this site and the content otherwise its going to continue to decline.

$25 posting fee? No way!! I agree with a payed membership but there must be some profit for the members. Viewing/downlaoding photos without watermark and advertisement free forums are two of them. However, I don't see it happen that photos are free of watermark because photographers won't agree. And for advetisements I have a solution which works: adblock plus!

Please bring back the old 20$ fee to join the site, plus the Optional paid subscription. It guaranteed a Minimum Quality of the Posts here.

The first big drop in the Quality of the Forums was in fact when the Membership fee was dropped. The second was the web redesign whihc ultimately alienated the users.
Many old timers have abandoned this site to never come back, but you may still save those who remain if you revert to the old paid model.

Totally agree. I am more than frustrated about the loss of 'expertise' of posts. So annoyed that it is half the fun to visit this site. And there is a two week old post that has now 2,064 replies. That is ridiclous.

OK, "Law is Law", so this is my first post in special place for first posts.
EW-85122 is the registration number of old Tupolev-154B aircraft (produced in 1975, retired in 90-s). Now this arcraft in good condition installed in Minsk Civil Aviation Academy, and used as "training mockup" for students, future aircraft mechanics. It's was my first aircraft, which I touch not as passenger, but with tools and lockwire)

What if a new member only makes one post? Assuming that it is a legitime post (no junk), will it be approved anyway? Or would the new user have to make a second post in order for them to go live?

A user's account is not clear to go active without post approval until two posts have been approved, and their account credentials have been reviewed by a moderator. Only after the second post approval are they cleared to post freely.

I have posted a couple of times over the past few weeks. The first while sitting on the taxiway during the BA/LHR debacle and more recently on the BA World tails thread. Neither post was accepted. What gives?

Long time lurker (even back to the old site) but finally decided to get an account. Currently learning the ropes and hope to have a job in the industry someday. For now, I'm just a fan/semi-frequent flier!

Hello all

Ben here, have worked at Gatwick Airport for the past 14 years (soon to be 15). Have a interest in civil aviation (mostly Gatwick related). Have enjoyed reading through some of the various threads in respect of Gatwick, and the various airlines that operate to/from it, cheers.

Long time lurker - I was infected with the god of aviation at an early age when I had the chance to visit my profile handle's cockpit (actually not the first time - LTU's Sud Aviation Caravelle was my premier opportunity). Here's to some thoughtful conversation and insight to be gained from fellow posters. T
