Hello! Med here with a PSA
As you may have noticed over the past couple of days there has been a "resurgence" of sorts with planes relating to the Youtuber Jelly.
Many of these aircraft are named against the ruling conventions, do not use the tag, or are outright copies. (sometimes all of the above!).
I understand this may be a cause of angst for some users, however you must keep in mind that a fair amount of these users are new to the community- and as a result, they do not know the rules.
Please try to be respectful when commenting on these planes- A simple link to the Rules and tagging the mods is all you should really post. Anything derogatory or hateful is counter-productive.
Don't make these new users' first impressions negative, as this is why they believe we are "haters"
Additionally, and rather importantly, I have seen some users try to take matters into their own hands. I would like to commend their efforts, however I would rather like for them to stop with this practice altogether. Despite their good intentions, they are doing a SIGNIFICANT amount of more harm then they realize!
Instead of only tagging the mods on these rule infringing aircraft (which is the fastest and easiest way to solve any issues), they decided to tag other users.
This "angry mob" (for a lack of a better term) then posts rather hateful comments and makes a large mess of the post. Instead of teaching the users what they are doing wrong, these actions confuse them and lead them to believe that we are being hostile towards them.
- Be kind and supportive of new users (if they are doing something wrong, tell them nicely, and link them to the rules! That way, they get a good impression of the community, and are less likely to repeat their actions)
- Tag the Mods, not your friends (Try not to get other users involved- the mods know how to deal with the situation best since they manage the website on a daily basis)
-DON'T POST HATE SPEECH (I know it may be frustrating if someone copies your plane, however you must keep in mind that the other users are human- they have feeling too!)
