Some of the recommendations of sponge_bob are the height of idiocy. In any group of people there'll always be a few malcontents but I'm sure that most members of the forum are happy with the status quo.

P.S. I'm surprised by the fear of high-quality pics. This is a picturephobia.

Suggesting a bit of housekeeping after the inauguration of the airports subforum: please more the airport statistics thread there, away from the main forum. Thank you!

I'm not at all satisfied with the status quo. It's practically impossible to read news and discussion because those threads are full of photos that have nothing all to do with the news and discussion. The photos should be in threads for photos, separate from news and discussion.

Posts with lots of photos from planespotters collections and with no news or discussion...AND in a news and discussion thread.

Waste of bandwidth and time.

I think we should create a separate photo section and then restrict photo posting in the other sections.

I posted this detailed explanation last month.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...0&postcount=70

Photos can be news but a post containing nothing only 10 photos of a particular plane in Moscow is not news and certainly not discussion. The worst offenders post innumerable photos of planes at each other and wreck discussion threads with them.

The planespotters can post away at each other in a photos subforum and the rest of the world are spared wasting our often costly bandwidth on nothing.

This here should be an AVIATION forum not a PLANESPOTTING forum and that should be absolutely clear to all posters.

The Antonov thread is another mess, I'd throw that one in the spotting forum too. The Iranian thread with all the phantom liveries is actually funny and anyway it is one graphic per post.

i wonder is it possible to separate the airlines and plane makers into 2 sections,

such as Qantas in one and a330 in another???

I am not sure that is needed. Airlines plane 'plans' and the planes themselves are interwoven. A lot of aviation news is who is buying what and why.

Airports themselves are physical and architectural objects and are separate. You would expect lots of graphics there.

Most of the compulsive planespotters are behaving in the news threads ...not quite all but most of them...since the new forum was created for Photos.

You always run the risk of creating too many subforums and having no busy ones worth a regular look and I think the current split is about right going forward.

I don't think it is needed at the current time....maybe we can revisit the issue later this year if this section becomes to cluttered again..

If members have any issues in this section they can PM me or Fieldsofdreams.... Sometimes that is faster then reporting a post...., although you should still report it.

Are you going to clean up the Antonov thread, it's nothing but photos with very little news.

Relax , try not to overload the thread from now on... Post no more then 3 photos per post , if you want to post more create a thread in the photo section... Also report any post you see overloading the post , it should be removed or the photos will be cut out..

A new model flight report is news I would think, maybe 3-5 good photos AND A TEXT REPORT on the occasion.

A production model flight report, 1 good photo at most or a link to a post with lots of photos in the photo forum. EG. 'Air Icelands new C100 flew today' > Link

Photos on their own are not news...we need context not bandwidth wastage.
