    Arrow Flightradar24 Feeder Chat

    I thought i would bite the bullet and start off a much needed thread.

    Use this thread for chatting about coverage, feeding Flightradar24 or anything else related to Feeding.
    But not for reporting new feeders spotted as that is covered here:
    http://forum.flightradar24.com/threa...Feeder-Spotted but you can chat about new feeders.

    Can we chat about getting a list made available of current feeders extracted from the database (each week please)?

    That would be the names of all radars that have uploaded - It would be nice if it could be made as a KML (Google Keyhole Markup Language) file but that would be too much to ask for.

    The "new feeders spotted" is a nice idea, but now that it is spread over 700+ posts over 70+ pages, not a very useful format for historic data lookup - sometimes a sorted list is better.

    good idea speedbird1960...

    there has been a lot of discussions at new feeder spotted thread that I sometimes finds cluttering, especially if I want to refer back. So having this is a good. The posts can be moved to here and hopefully not deleted anymore.

    If you move the post, how does the original poster know where it's gone unless a tag is left in the original place and that defeats the reason for moving it to some extent.

    Move it, PM the user with a link the the post in it's new location.

    Have you ever posted in the wrong place - then looked for the 'delete my post' button (even if no one has responded) ... it's not there!

    Most who post in the wrong place don't do it deliberately - they may not have seen the notice 20 pages / 205 posts back - be nice to them, don't whack them - they might be important to you one day, but they won't if they're driven away.

    Maybe make this thread a sticky. So it doesn't get lost in the forum area.

    Hi Peter to delete a post, select edit, you will then see the 'Delete' button its next to 'Go Advanced'.

    Hi Brian, i was also thinking of making it a sticky but the Flightradar24 section already has a lot of stickies, the only other option would be to move the thread to http://forum.flightradar24.com/forum...out-this-forum
    But then its kind of in the wrong section on the Forum and could be hard to find for new members.

    My opinion is that creating new or splitting this section would solve the problem.
    One section for all is not enough. There is too much to talk about

    I have created this new thread today, what did you want to split.

    You can talk as much as you like on this thread.

    If I recall correctly, VBulletin on which this forum is based has a facility whereby deleted or moved posts leave a message in the original spot. Like many features available in the underlying software, it does not appear to be implemented here on FR24. For example, we also do not appear to have personal messages (PMs) between members or if we do I can't find it where it normally would be expected. However, we are blessed with some of the more useless features of VBulletin like rankings and signatures.

    Good move to create a new thread. It will be nice to be able to talk to/about various feeders without having the posts deleted.
