  1. Original idea by @Kris Cobb

    So lets make a list of problems and tackle them one at a time.

    Simply list the issues that FSR is facing. Debate will be be another thread. Please list in order of importance 3-5 things that need to be fixed. Again, this is not a debate thread.

  2. - Multiple/Sister Teams in WC
    - Lack of Viewers on Youtube
    - The difficulties to introduce something new because of TOA/ISR

    - Lack of visibility and participation in other large games (AC, F1 2015, iRacing)
    - Press Department (does not include the excellent coverage on YouTube)
    (- Use of closed cockpits for better safety)
     
    • Haha Haha x 2
  4. Edited.
     
  5. - Lack of capable and motivated administration
     
    • Agree Agree x 7
  6. - Lack of Viewers on Youtube


    This should be #1 on the list
     
    • Agree Agree x 1
  7. - Lack of transparency towards the drivers regarding decisions that will ultimately affect them.
     
    • Agree Agree x 3
    1. Too much goes on behind close doors, due to TOA
    2. Lack of press department
    3. Penalties not being applied in the same way, for each division.
     
    • Agree Agree x 4

    1) Volunteers!
    2) Complicated/Outdated FSR Structure
    3) Lack of people giving a crap. Example: This exact same topic on the ISR Board and not a single person posted problems.

  11. - Multiple/Alliance teams in FSR.
    - No transparent organization.
    - No enough people/volunteers.
    - Lack of merchandising&differentiated areas (business, politicy/rules, races).
    - Teenage mentality of most people in FSR (I don't think it's the least important thing, but I put it in last place because I know how hard it is to change this.)

  12. - No enough people/volunteers.

    PS: I know it's not a discussion but what's the problem with the alliance teams? Even in real life teams work together for better results also that's not something that you control anyway.
     
  13. - the wish of some people who to remove the big WC team alliances

    - using silly tracks just because F1 uses them

    - too many setup parameters/too little gaps in etc the damper values, instead of 1-20 it should be maybe 4 different values to choose. Otherwise it gets guess-the-right-setup-value fest. Or do-2k-laps-or-have-bad-setup fest.

  14. 1. Too many sister teams that stop other ACE and PRO teams who want a WC team getting in
    2. Too short calendars, (should be 18 minimum IMO)
    3. Too strict about track quality, only focusing on how good tracks look rather than whether they are driveable, eg, the version of Canada looked good but had a glitch. There is another version that doesn't look good but has no bugs (F1RFT) Surely track driveability is more important than graphics?
    4. No highlights videos - obviously I'm not sure if there is anything you can do about that.
     
    • Agree Agree x 1
  15. - new website on 2-3 or more languages.
    - more interviews with drivers/teamowners between races, not only post-race interviews, interesting news around FSR and its history.
    - a volunteer/s to do media stuff, like pre-post race highlights and etc.
     
  16. Edited.

  18. I have to add something to my first post:
    -Lack of interest of the team owners. At least EVERY team owner should do a post here
     
    • Agree Agree x 3
  19. -Brutal lack of care of some WC team owners
    -Lack of key people in certain areas (therefore lack of promotion, media, etc)
    -Lack of transparency for the non WC drivers/teams
    -Overcomplicated and useless club structure
    -Entry fees
     
    • Agree Agree x 5
