Hope im not out of place saying this but it is something that i have noticed during my training for Vatsim ATC.
Each mentor ive had has insisted on using a certain way for giving taxi instructions, for example
"BAW001 taxi holding point J4 Runway 08R Via J"
Now due to my line of work at EGKK i listen to ATC all the time when working, and the way every air traffic controller issues taxi instructions is,
"BAW001 taxi J hold J4"
Many a time just
"BAW001 J J4"
Due to me hearing this all the time IRL, i have been making the "mistake" of using this way of instruction on the network and being told by the mentor that it is incorrect.
Im just wondering if there is a specific reason that it is done this way on Vatsim and it not the same way as IRL.

I was trying to book a session on Gatwick Tower today for after a mentoring session while I was controlling it but the CTS gave me an error (https://prnt.sc/iqqkgw) saying that I am currently logged on to the position and must only book from the present to "make it fair for everyone". Is it possible that this could be removed as it is quite a pain and I see no point in having it.

Thanks to all the controllers (and pilots) that made the Stuttgart to London City event such a great evening. It was nice to see Vatsim provide an event suited to the turboprop addicts with comprehensive ATC cover all round. It was nice to stretch the Dash 8's legs. Hopefully there may be more of this coming up?

I selected Documentation Review because for some reason, i couldn't choose Procedure Consultation.
My question is, what does the final letter in a SID and/or STAR designator (e.g. ‘M’ in DVR8M) indicate?

@Harry Sugden just something that would be helpful. Whilst the crib sheets all have a similar style now, I do notice that many items (e.g. sq codes) are not always in the same place on the sheets. This would be a big help when switching between airfields and glancing down at the sheet. I realise its not always possible due to what needs to be shown. Something to keep in mind maybe.
