This is why so many SW members left the forum, this should have been posted in the "Heads up/OTT" section.

This section is for airfield movements in the SW, not for aircraft flying over the area. ;)

You are the main reason why so many SW members have left the forum Mike,when are you going to get it into your head that you're not a moderator?!!! For goodness sake give it a rest before you cost this forum anymore valuable contributors. It's the members who live outside the SW that like to follow what's going on that'll miss out,not the SW enthusiasts themselves.

People left the forum because they felt victimised by certain members and that the moderation was focused on them when other areas were let off. They were supportive of movements over the SW being posted here because that's where they would be seen by people who actually live here.

It did multiple approaches into Newquay, as well as a touch and go, so it was an airfield movement and was even quoted as being in the circuit in the original post.

its also a shame when people cant even get the name of an airport right "St Mawgan" hasn't existed as an airfield since 2007 its Newquay now EGHQ not "EGDG" :halo: :@

and since when has an OTT been an aircraft touching the ground? :pop:

You're quite correct phat01 but I think to the old school Cornish boys it will always be looked upon as St.Mawgan. :thumb:

The original post didn't mention that the A400M actually did a touch and go, it says "circuiting". !

We get Cobham Falcons circuiting Culdrose on an almost weekly basis so by your logic this should be reported in the OTT section then?!!

circuiting = visual circuits
circuiting = racing around a track ohh like visual circuits

Mike, what maybe better is if I give you the link to FC Forum Rules. viewtopic.php?f=6&t=24285#p144730
Please visit, read and digest, then if you have any problems, feel free to quote the rule that is being broken.

There is no rules on where "post" should be make, or for that matter guidance. The only indication is titles to area's of the forum, from them member read different things. As example, "Spotters Area - Serials and Airfield Logs" to me will be totally different to others. This is because its not defined enough, Spotters Area for me is an information zone regarding that local location where people can post information on that named local site and anything related to serial & logs, just the same as if I went to the real local Spotters Viewing Area. So the original post was correct, it was local information.

Again, you may say, and you did, should be posted in the UK OTT, why ? Again, have a read of the rules and let us know which FC forum rule is being broken.

I'm sure (sure) if I visit some of your post within Scottish Spotter areas I'll find posts made by you that are "not" serial or Log" related, may even find a picture or two where you've not found the need to complain about, wonder why!

So you have the Rules, rather than moan, use them and quote the rule being broken, if you can..... SHUT UP.

Staff, guess this will be another thread locked and moved. Suggest rather than wait for other to come... Rethink the forum structure and how people use it.
