New Avcom language policy

Unread post by Jack Welles » Mon Apr 01, 2019 7:38 am

A mod has told me that in future members are going to have to pass a language test (like the Levels for pilot licences) before they can post.

Once accepted their posts will still be modded for things like, examples, mixed metaphors, ending sentences with prepositions, identifying puns in brackets, bad spelling etc etc.

You have been warned [-(

Luckily the policy will only be implemented on the 1st of April 2020. At least I will have time to learn English. :D
