This only applies to Stickies and Front Page News
The administrators of The Sim-Outhouse have implemented a new policy regarding “stickied” threads that announce new releases. You may have noticed a new section in the Forum index. The “What’s New” section will now contain the announcementsthat were once “stickied” in the other main sections. They will also be echoed via script to the website’s front page. Lastly, there will be no replies to the announcements in the new section. Separate threads may be started in the appropriate sections for discussion as before. Not just anyone will be able to access the section. Here are the requirements:
Who: First and foremost, SOH has always been member funded, so we also consider it member owned. Therefore, only Charter Members who are also either a developeror the designated member of a development group will get threads stickied or be granted access to the new section. If you are either a developer or dev. group member, PM an administrator so that we can get you added to the list of authorized users. Until that is sorted, you may still post in the appropriate forum. A staff member will move or copy the post to the “What’s New” section.
What: The title of the post should be short and to the point. We’d like titles like FS9 Payware Avelina, or FSX Freeware OV-10. The post should tell users where to get the package, and also provide a point of contact for support, whether that’s an email address, the developer’s own forum, or here at SOH. Please note that only freeware will be allowed to list SOH as a support contact. Note, special sales do not apply – only new releases.
