Lots of requests for newly winged aviators lately, but none of them have actually come from the individuals. Since there's been a new batch, I think the "how-to" has been pushed down the threads, so here's an update.

If you are newly winged (or an old fart that hasn't had them updated on your avatar yet), go to the "Settings" in the upper right part of the window and click it.
-There you'll find "Permission Groups" on the left under "My Settings," most of the way down. Click that and you'll see several groups to join.

-Click the button on the right for whichever group you're requesting (Pilot or NFO) and then click the button "Join Group."

Several moderators/Super-mods can see these requests and authorize the joining. Voila, you now have wings. Sometimes it takes several days to update, so just be patient. For those that have forwarded PMs to mods, that can still be done, by the 4 Admins here, but we can't/don't always get to it, so making the group request makes it easier/faster.

All the above is long gone with the new software. Just post your requests here.

Post here if you have any questions.

I joined Pilot and Army Pilot groups about two weeks ago and no wings yet. Is that still the process for updating my avatar? If possible, please add one each (Army & Navy). I have earned both.

Cannonwell is the group leader for the Army group. You have to wait for him to come along and approve you. Or for an admin to notice and add you.

It's tough to navigate the forum on IE 6 at work, but I'm not even sure where the group permissions are anymore w/ the new software. I'll have to poke around at home where the pages format correctly and the connection isn't so slow. Unless I go into the admin panel, which is a pain right now (see above), like HAL said, Cannonwell will have to approve it.

Again, I'll poke around when I get home.

Interesting. Anything special you have to do? Though that still doesn't help w/ the retardedly slow connection on base.

Also...not a fan of the new software UI. I'm just sayin'...

UPDATE:

If you are newly winged (or an old fart that hasn't had them updated on your avatar yet), go to the "Settings" in the upper right part of the window and click it.
-There you'll find "Permission Groups" on the left under "My Settings," most of the way down. Click that and you'll see several groups to join.

-Click the button on the right for whichever group you're requesting (Pilot, NFO or now the other service wings) and then click the button "Join Group."

Several moderators/Super-mods can see these requests and authorize the joining. Voila, you now have wings. Sometimes it takes several days to update, so just be patient.
