We probably all know that the Expert Server is not perfect. Lot’s of mistakes happen (which is to be expected).
But we have to try to limit the amount of mistakes that happen. Trying to gain more expertise in the ‘Expert’ Server.
That is why I am proposing this idea: an extra screen before you start your flight. To make pilots be aware there are certain rules which are enforced, but also to make the tutorial content more accessible. People are lazy and want easy access to stuff. That’s why this probably would help in my opinion.
The extra screen explains that you are entering the Expert Server, that there are certain rules and that you need to stay up-to-date with these rules. Since the tutorials are also listed at the center of the screen, users can easily read the titles and users will maybe think:
“hey, ATC send me Check help pages when I tried to land with ILS last time, will this ILS tutorial explain it to me?”
So each time a users tries to access the Expert Server, they have to confirm they are up-to-date with the enforced rules. The confirmation itself is nothing special (just pressing the continue button), but the user is actively confronted that certain rules are enforced on this specific server.
Additional suggestions posted in the comments below:
Changing the text in the extra screen to:
You are about to enter the Expert Server, do you know all the enforced rules?**
- Follow all ATC commands
- Observe speed limits on the ground and in the air
- Do not taxi through others
- Do not spam the frequency
- Do not interfere with others
- Maintain safe separation with other aircraft
- Follow the existing traffic flow

The top two things that need to be listed though are “How to change frequency” and “What selecting pattern work actually means.” 🤬
