Hello, I have an old custom callsign, PISELLO, which literally means “sweet pea”, but now I want to change it, as I think that it may sound offensive for someone, as in Italian it has another meaning, an offensive one. How can I change it?
In what? IFC or just IF?
on the actual simulator
Click your profile in IF, click the pencil next to callsign, and change it.
already tried, but it gives me an error, as it wants a callsign with a different format, but I don’t want to lose the custom one.
It means you put too many numbers/letters.
nope, the one I’m trying to insert is way shorter than my current one, it says "your callsign isn’t valid. Make sure a valid country registration is selected.
You have to click a country.
Could I get an image?
yeah sure, gimme a minute
Yeah, you’ll need to select a country code first.
Hey! Custom callsigns have been done away with since version 20.2
You’ll have to be creative by using a country code to make up your own callsign - for example, mine is VT-SOO.
What he said!
what happens if I keep the one that I have? will I get banned?
No, obviously not.
No, it’ll simply get grandfathered in. It looks like you made it at a time before Global rolled out.
But if you change it, you will never get it back.
