  1. Press the menu icon in the top right (three horizontal lines), then Account, then Ignored Users. You can add users there. Instead of seeing their posts your see something saying that they posted but you’ve chosen to ignore, and you have the option of showing an individual post. note: I’m using safari on an iPhone. Not sure if the desktop experience, or another browser, is any different.
  2. I’m actually kind of glad to see this. Flair announced this route first and it always seemed like the WestJet-owned Swoop was just coming in to pick off a poorer competitor. Flair will have this route to themselves for now, which helps their long-term viability in the BNA market.
  3. I liked that they removed the downvote option but everything else was kind of lame. And really the laughing one, if not used in an actual humorous situation, is a more douchy version of the downvote.
  4. If you download the Tapatalk it tells you who is reacting, even if it doesn’t tell you what specific reaction they’re putting in. So if you only have one reaction to your post it’s pretty easy to tell who put it in there. I’ve attached a picture so you can see the UI.
  5. It’s supposed to be built with as much sustainable materials as possible, with the interior furniture, laundry, and toiletries sourced with fair trade in mind. Basically trying to make the morally correct decision with each step. My wife and I gave some money back in 2016 when they were initially fundraising, but I figured after I didn’t hear anything for a few years that it was dead. I’m glad Mr. Cowart is still trying to make it happen.
  6. Alright, makes sense. I was confused by the start of this thread, which at the time was specifically stated by Lexy as a place to share news because the main page was too cluttered. And by the fact that there wasn’t a single multi-picture post in this thread until around 14 months after it started.
  7. When the flights and airlines thread was created I thought it was to provide a space for new flight and airline news distinct from the photos which were at that time clogging up the main BNA thread. I thought THIS was supposed to be the refuge from the constant repetitive pictures. What’s the main BNA thread for? Specifically pictures of construction? Anyway, I blocked the user in question and it provides for a much more readable experience. The only reason I get so irritated about it was when I started coming to this site 6-7 years ago it was primarily due to the BNA news, so it’s devolution into constant pictures of the same random aircraft has kind of ruined my experience here. I know The Moderators hath Spoken but it still doesn’t change my experience.
  8. I used one of those in Chicago-Midway earlier this year. Funny thing is they had to have like 3 guards around the front to make sure people didn’t steal. Why not just have them work the register?
  9. I believe they were the last domestic users of the 747-200F, which they retired like 3-4 years ago. Also, the aircraft used in the movie Air Force One was a re-painted Kalitta 747-200.
  10. I was driving through south loop earlier today with my 4 year old daughter in the backseat, and while we were passing Haven she bursted out “Daddy, that building has so many pretty colors!!” Maybe I found their target audience - 4 year old girls?
  11. To provide a separate space specifically for new airline and new flight news was literally why this thread was created. Atlas has now been flying to BNA multiple times per week for like a year and a half, I don’t know why we keep having to thumb through pictures of the same shots of the same 747’s operated by the same airline. I value the poster because he often posts the breaking news in this and several other threads, so I don’t want to block his posts, it’s just kind of making this thread unusable and uninteresting.
  12. It’s not really a matter of wanting to live far out, it’s just what a bank will loan you. There’s typically a maximum they’ll loan you for the mortgage, so if what you can afford is an hour out that’s what you have to do. Especially if you’re a paterfamilias like myself and have a brood of young’uns to house: my mortgage is roughly half or less of what a 3-4 bed apartment in the urban core would cost. We recently moved from Madison to White House, and initially we wanted to stay in Davidson county but the quality of the houses in our range was just garbage in Davidson. Or they were in terrible parts of town, the type of places where if I was a single hipster - a gentrifying conquistador - I would move, but never in a million years with my children. My commute went from a few minutes to roughly half an hour each way but I avoid the interstate and take scenic secondary roads, plus I have an Audible membership for my listening pleasure. It’s not too bad.
  13. It seems they’re in the process of clearing the entire (formerly) North Park Village senior community, which has been empty for a few months. They’ve shredded basically every tree on the land. I hope what they’re building there is worth it, I used to live right near there and I loved the giant, old, beautiful shumard oaks that dotted that area. Plus there were several healthy young white ash trees, which are critically endangered. I’m kind of bummed about this. “Many of these trees were my friends. Creatures I had known from nut and acorn.”
  14. I’d say that of all the reasons that urban downtowns decayed from the 1960s to the 1990s, shopping malls rank pretty low. Below, say, white flight and the crack epidemic.
