When i heard that JFK was having an FNO i new that it was gonna be one of the biggest FNO's Vatsim has seen in a while.. what i didnt expect was that i was held on Chicago Ground for 3+ hours for absolutley no reason, I departed chicago finally at 0150 Zulu, now noticing that i can no longer participate in the FNO im making the decisions if i should continue the flight or just close out of my sim. Why fly an FNO when you cant even Participate. Very Disappointed with this FNO

Uh... The reason is that 260+ aircraft were trying to land at the same time. There was absolutely a reason. You even acknowledged that you "new it was gonna be one of the biggest FNO's Vatsim has seen in a while"

It is no different than VATSIM Golden Mic Award, the Iron Mic Award, or the rank of positions by callsign that is on most VATSIM statistic sites.

The difference there is that Iron/Golden Mic are fun, friendly competitions. You are presenting this data as a performance metric, and then telling ARTCCs at the bottom to "do better" (a direct quote from my RM).

No I didn't.  I said "Uptime ranking"  I didn't assign a value judgement to the rankings at all.  I just reposted the rankings at the beginning of this thread based on roster size (as of March 2021) without Observers.

It sounds like there was a breakdown in communication somewhere because there are some mixed signals between what Mani is saying here, and what others are saying have been communicated to them by their RM.

Excuse my back of the napkin math on this, but it seems like (in general) the larger ARTCCs have more controlling hours. If the division is planning to keep ranking ARTCCS like this, the solution shouldn't be to tell smaller ARTCCs to staff more. I know this is a very hot hot take, but what if after graduation from the Academy, OBS were assigned a facility, or maybe a shortlist. I'm sure several controllers can relate that they visit/are home controllers at a place nowhere near their home. They stay because of the community aspect. As a bonus, this should hopefully help to reduce the ridiculous training backlog at the larger facilities. I know it's not going to be popular, but I think that it's an idea to be considered if we're serious about evening the playing field between the largest ARTCCs and the smallest. Heck, I'm pretty sure ZLA has more OBS than most facilities have certified controllers! Does that not seem wrong to anyone else?

What is the set route function on some plans?  If listed it show a 0 or 0,1 or 0,1,2 etc.  The option is not listed on all fltplans

I believe it relates to the FAA pref route database

Rob brings up a great point, and I'm sorry to continue hijacking the event post, but I wanted to add something too. In the real world, customers (ie, the airlines) and the Command Center (the people in charge of watching and scheduling everything) work very closely together to ensure that airplanes are slotted in at the right times and delays are metered. This line isn't as clearly defined on VATSIM, but it does still exist.

Trust me, as a controller I don't want to be the bad guy delaying you for an hour, but remember that we're all on the same team here. We're all working towards the goal of a smooth event but it requires that both pilots and controllers do their part.
