General Discussion / Who is the final authority?
« on: February 18, 2010, 09:08:40 AM »
Jason, I can only offer you my opinion to answer your question, and here it is.

If I have a question of policy where ever I am at, I ask my immediate boss, I would pretty much want to get it in writing (or at least a reference), and then use that as an answer.   If I am then questioned on my behavior based on the answer I recieved from my boss, I should comply with whatever is being told at the time, and refer the one questioning my practice to my immediate boss who gave me direction on the practice that I was engaged in, and let the two of them duke it out, so to speak.

Of course this is VATSIM, and there are VATSIMisms that have to be taken into consideration, and like I said, this is MHO only.

Point is, the RD could never get answers for the DD because no information was passed down. The BoG only seemed interested in the operations of VATUSA when something was going wrong. There was absolutely no support any other time.

So, one would think that the RD should then get on the BOG and tell them to funnel all correspondance directed towards the DD's thru him.  Otherwise, what's the point of having a RD, except to sit on the EC? And if that was his/her only job, then they would just be BOG "gophers"


BOG:  OK RD's go tell the DD's to do this!

RD:  Yes sir boss whatever you say.

Of course, I don't believe that is why they are there, only saying that IF that is the only reason.

Somebody, somewhere along the line has to have the intestinal fortitude to stand up for what they think is right for their people.  IMHO

Just by reading the posts in here, and nothing else, I'm getting the sense that there's a big gap in what some are saying the lack of communication lays.  DD's work for RD's, therefore, if a DD is not getting direction/guidance, I'm thinking that would be on the RD, not the EC, or BOG.  Military or not, there is a chain of command.  DD's should be looking to RD's for guidance, not the EC or BOG, also, the same holds true going downhill, the BOG, EC, shouldn't be giving direct input, (good or bad) to the DD's but to the RD's first, but, that is just MHO

ps.  this is a very condensed version of what I really would like to say.

Will all of the weather clients produce these weather phenomena in the same locations?  It seems that THAT would be necessary in order for this to work.

That's what I'm screamin.  Those that use Active Sky, and all the different versions of it, are not going to get the same weather as those that use the default FS weather, or any other weather generating client.  So I'm thinking it would be difficult for this to work under those circumstances.
