    Why is there even hate on this plane? Seriously, it's childish and has no place here. This is a clean, well made plane with great attention paid to its smooth body shape. It also handles quite well, so I'd say it's a well deserved feature. Good work.

    @Squirrel I have seen a few gold users be featured previously. The points didn't add up to being silver before the feature.

    @kukimuki1234 Zed is a gold user (previously platinum), so I'm afraid we can't feature it.

    @kukimuki1234 We can't change them as such. Once they're on the featured list, they stay until another take its place, then it moves down the line, removing the 4th plane on the list. We could feature another plane today, but I personally haven't yet seen anything I would personally deem feature worthy.

    @kukimuki1234 We're trying to cut back on featuring planes as people were complaining they weren't getting enough exposure... In one extreme case, a plane was only featured for something like 2 hours. It was pretty bad, so we're trying to be less trigger happy.

    @kukimuki1234 why not? I believe it meets the requirements of a plane that deserves to be featured. It's by a silver ranked user and has a simple but atheistically appealing design. Now I personally didn't feature the aircraft, but I do not feel inclined to go against the decision of the one that featured it. I know you probably think it's not detailed enough and too simple, but this game is called simpleplanes.... I think sometimes people need to be reminded of that and that you don't have to make something overly complicated, like I did, in order to get on there.
    .
    Now I respect that after reading that you probably still don't agree with the fact this plane was featured. After all it's your opinion and your entitled to that. But, you are not entitled to put people down for it publicly in full view of the user. If it was constructed criticism, fair enough... But it isn't, it's just flat out hating.

    @Djbanana it's alright. It's not anything full blown, just thought I'd warn you before it was.

    @kukimuki1234 Please don't harass other players. If you think a plane doesn't deserve to be featured, take it up with the mods or devs, rather than taking matters into your own hands.
    .
    Also, @CaesiciusPlanes @Djbanana I hope this isn't about to unfold into a fully fledged argument. Considering you've both committed rule violations within the last day or so, I think it would be wise to not engage in such matters.

    @kukimuki1234 čoveče, iskuliraj više. Ja umalo da budem banovan zbog ovakvih gluposti. Ako ti se ne sviđa, samo ga ignoriši. Možda možeš da mu daš neki savet ili tako nešto. Ovo stvarno nije lepo.

    @kukimuki1234 it's called simple planes. And if you aren't jealous, why do you care so much?
