BALTOPS/Saber Strike 2016 - Important Info

Post by AeroResource » Thu Jun 02, 2016 8:05 am

Over the last few exercises we have noticed (and had it pointed out to us by a number of people) that information is often spread across multiple forum sections making it difficult to determine if it has already been posted. On top of this, the interest that exercise bring also means that the photo section tends to be dominated by those threads meaning that others are missed.

Therefore, we have decided to trial a new concept for BALTOPS/Saber Strike 2016. There is now a dedicated section for this exercise with three individual sections designed to cover everything -

- Movements - both real time and daily round ups of movements relating to the exercise - viewforum.php?f=358
- Information - General exercise information and questions - viewforum.php?f=359
- Photos - any photo threads relating to the aircraft/bases taking part in the exercise - viewforum.php?f=360

This section will be the only place for BALTOPS/Saber Strike 2016 information to be posted and, if posted in other sections, threads will be moved or merged as appropriate.

At the end of the exercise the information will be moved back in to the standard sections as they would normally have been posted.

This is a trial run and, as such, we don’t expect it will be perfect, but thought it would be worth trailing something different this time around.

Great idea. Hopefully it will make it easier for people to find information and save asking the same questions all over the place.
