Forum Code of Conduct

At its best, the Flyer Forum continues to be a valuable resource for the General Aviation community

It is a place where flyers of all experience levels can meet to discuss and exchange up-to-date undistorted information, social plans, considered opinion and engagement with the professionals that support us - as well as simply to enjoy good-humoured like-minded conversation.

Sometimes, though, it can stray a little. To try and avoid some of the more common reasons for that, here's our Code of Conduct.

Be nice, considerate and polite.
If you can't make your point without a personal attack, obvious or otherwise, don't make it at all. Beware sarcasm, it mostly doesn't work on the Internet. Don't write stuff that you wouldn't say out loud at a party of friends with young kids present, (if you are inconsiderate and impolite at parties, maybe avoid those too).
No party politics, no religion
We're all masters of self control (probably), but let's not test that with temptation.
No bigotry, racism, sexism
See above (Be nice, considerate and polite). For the avoidance of doubt (and as an example), Pikey is not an acceptable term.

We'll do our very best to moderate consistently and with a light touch. As I've mentioned elsewhere, the light touch thing only works if posters, where needed, self moderate before hitting send.

At its best the Non Aviation section is helpful, informative and entertaining. At its worst, it causes hugely disproportionate amounts of hassle and stress. I don't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater, but to mix metaphors a bit, the plug's not far from being pulled.

Thanks
