I was just browsing the Paris pictures, and I came across this one:

As you can see, it is a mockup of a 767 refueling probe. There have been many discussions about simulators here, and this doesn't seem to fit in the "allowed" list. I also would have just sent out an e-mail, but if this type of picture is now allowed, I thought everyone should know about it.

BTW This is nothing against you, Miguel, I was browsing your photos and they're all pretty sick!  bigthumbsup

A mail to screeners@airliners.net would have been indeed of better style  Wink

If my memory serves me correctly - absolutely NO simulator pics are allowed into the database (after a certain date). This became a rather heated debate a year or so ago, and I understood that the final answer was NO MORE sim pics. That being said, since this pic was allowed in - then I suppose the rules have now changed. Bring on the simulator photos!!! (I have a couple myself!)

This is exactly what I am referring to. If someone could clarify the current standing of the simulator rule, that is all I, and I'm sure others, are looking for.

If they meet the requirements stated in this thread

Simulator Photos In Database (by LorM Feb 1 2005 in Site Related)

then they are allowed.

The requirements are

Quoting PUnmuth@VIE (Reply 2):
We accept simumator photos under the following definitions.

Only full motion (airliner) simulators

Superior quality shots

No manuals, beers, etc. on the pic

Clearly stated that it is a simulator, thus no registration for example
Note that we do not have a "simulator" category and are currently unable to add one. However, in the future that might very well happen and then it is of high importance that it is mentioned in the remark field that the photo is of a simulator.

Or perhaps the crew could stop stonewalling the members all the time when constructive criticism is offered?  Wink

So with all due respect to Miguel, he is a fine photographer, is his "playstation" refueling demonstrator going to be deleted?
From what I read it clearly doesn't meet the criteria.

I find myself agreeing with both Eric & Peter, a quick search might have found the links, and a quick answer why Miguel's picture was/was not eligible could reduce some of the difficulties this forum sometimes faces

Finding those links does not explain why this photo was accepted, if it was a simple mistake, accept it and we will as well, if the rules are evolving, just say so

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

Eric is correct,
I agree with Peter's point that a quick search would find some explanation.
AND
I agree with Eric's point that a quick explanation rather than the standard "do a search" would avoid some aggravation.

And thank you for that.
