Yeah, I started it back up thinking it wasn't resolved. Yeah c0p0ut stated it, all good. Closing it off with a decision quote for future readers:

At airports where there is no active ATC, it is the pilot's responsibility to announce their intentions. I don't think there needs to be any more markings placed on the map. People just need to communicate. The bobcat at the other end of the runway might be a good option.

The only thing map markers wouldn't prevent is if, for whatever reason, a pilot prefers a particular runway, and could make an approach say from the South because it's the direction from which he's coming and is most expedient, but when at the airport, swings around at the last minute and lands on the opposite runway. It would be more self-regulating if all approaches and landings were simply dictated by the half of the compass from which the inbound aircraft is coming. A simple note in the FAQ could lay out the procedure. Nothing else would have to be done on the server or to the map.

Well, personally for the two cents, I can understand how it can be an issue from time to time as some pilots don't state their take off and landing, but those who do usually check for the proper runway to be clear.

I do not believe it's such an issue that would require too much action, so far I've seen most jets landing on "04" and taking off from "22" as it's pretty much the most intuitive way, but so far as I'm aware there's no regulation in action, and people still try and do that, and even though that often people do change directions usually you can easily avoid collision as we simply don't have enough air traffic, it's almost impossible to have lets say 4 jets land at main airfield as it's pretty much everything we have in the air.

So, from my point of view, just using Teamspeak (Which is not a must for NAK Elite, but doesn't mean you can't join) and just a quick map check before taxi should leave matters clear and avoid most air collisions. (They will still happen from time to time, but that'll be a very rare occurrence.)
