New Events Category!

Community,

We have now launched a new #events category here on the forum. This category had been suggested by our TL3 members and we’ve had some discussion about it. This category will be used for a variety of different community events. These could range from scenic flights to landing competitions or GA flying. These events should help to bring our community together through the use of flying, encourage participation and help members to have fun.

Initially, only staff and moderators will be able to create events within this category. This is to gauge interest and ensure quality events. If we see success within these then we will branch off into allowing the general community to create events. We aim to have a trial run of this category first in order to judge on a number of factors and see the demand.

Example Event

It’s so similar to IFC. That is just wow and awesome as well! :slightly_smiling_face::slightly_smiling_face:

The IFC has Flashflights… This is events… This isn’t really similar…

When you say flash flight, are you referring to the flash flights created by staff/moderators? Also doesn’t IFC also has events?

IFC has events for sure! We have no intentions of copying IFC and we will be running our own events for members of our community to take part in.

Be sure to send us a message if you have any feedback, or suggestions.

Once our first few events are down and if people want it, it will be opened up to everyone on the forum. Perhaps just regulars first though.
