Vatsim - What A Waste Of Time!

Sun May 01, 2005 5:29 am

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 membership@vatsim.net 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?  Sad

Vatsim seems to be more realistic, but rules are very strict. The IVAO staff is very kind to new people, and try to learn them how things work. This was sadly not the case with me at Vatsim.

Traffic depends were you are flying.
IVAO is alway very busy in Europe, sometimes in south Amerika, while Vatsim is busier in the USA.

Just what you prefer.
have a good day, Stefan van Hierden

it looks like im going to be sticking to IVAO seen as VATSIM cant even type their email correctly.

I checked the contact section of the website and found an online form you could fill in to contact them, alas no reply as of yet. No doubt that email bounced too.

what a joke VATSIM is!
