Now if you are wondering why we are doing Austria now (it doesn't usually follow Singapore :p ) the real life Austrian GP is on this weekend as well, so there's more Austria in everyone's life I guess. So don't practice for Malaysia or something :p

Right then, after Singapore it's clear changes need to be made. I have seen way, way too much complaining about drivers and driving standards in main threads and race threads and not enough steward inquiries. After the commotion in the last race thread, a normal split would have seen a bucketload of inquiries. This split had none. I've tried explaining this point nicely a few times already. I suppose I'll have to explain it again.

If you are involved in an incident where someone pushes you off track, and don't take it to the stewards, what you are effectively saying is "yes, I am fine with you barging me off the road". So they will do it again, as they don't get repercussions for it.

So, long story short, complaining in these threads because your race was ruined is a waste of everyone's time.
The link to the stewards panel is here - https://apexonlineracing.com/community/forums/stewards-panel.90/
However, there is a quick and easier solution than the stewards panel - just give more space. And if things get out of hand again on the forums, don't think I won't start taking more severe action.

Right, enough of that. Lets just remember why we all signed up - to have a bit of fun on a sunday night racing pretend cars around a track. So go and do that this Sunday and stop giving me headaches on a sunday night :p

Although I believe this has been said before, I would like to add something to the post.
Just take some time between retiring from the session in pure rage and posting your race experience on the forums. I take some hours, or sometimes a night, to post to the forums. It makes a big difference. Let the adrenaline flow out of your system, become nice and zen and post a reasonable comment on the forums. (And ofcourse do what @Maddog40 strongly suggested :))

first of all @Raguza and @Entity please be patient at the start you cant do divebomb like that to anyone. you guys are just going for nothing. I was pissed to both of you but I think adrenaline was too high for you guys so consider this as a friendly advice :)

I am so getting sick of getting spun out or wing chopped off at the start. Please guys control yourselves at the race starts, you cant just divebomb. This is not an open lobby, this is AOR... ?
