Well i decided to join VATSIM and start getting into online flying, but vatsims signup system is so retarded I cant!!
I entered my details and pressed submit, only to get an error message stating that i already have an acocunt!!!
It seems there is already someone with my second name already regestered, and it thinks its me, even though the first name is different, and the email is not even the same domain!!! God help anyone with a common name trying to sign up!
Anyway, it suggests i click that ID and retrieve my password, or if im sure that is not my account, email the registration staff.
So a simple case of emailing them and sort the thing out? Well you see I would, only the email they provide is invalid, I just emailed firstname.lastname@example.org as suggested, and my email bounced, "Unknown recipient"
Oh well, that was a waste of time!!!
So has anyone managed to successfully register with VATSIM or is your second name taken too?
