How would this be implemented?
I guess it will be using the same method like how Infinite Flight bans inapproriate callsigns. With a message pops up like “This callsign has been taken by another user, Please look for another callsign” once you clicked OK if someone has already used the same callsign
treat them as my fans?
Why else will they make a username the same as you. Because they watch your videos and are a fans of your channel. Try to look at it from a more positive point of view
True, but you lost the draw, so change your name, please.
Some people like me like to have different callsigns so we could fly different “commercial routes” as well. I don’t know if this idea would work for everyone, just those that like to keep their callsign.
They try to get attention (Mostly)
In the long run people like that could fool other fans. They’re doing it so that people follow them, attention, not because they like the YouTuber
Coming soon to IF…FDS Verified Display Names…
Make people bid for a name, the person who pays the most gets the name?
But I do appreciate it, when they do get attention! It shows how my “fans” react.
Checks made payable to FDS, c/o Tim Beckmann…
Sound like a great idea lol the other day I saw 3 Laura’s flying and the sad part is I almost believed them for a second lol. P.s love your vids
Yeah, no kidding. Would be an interesting approach…
I do love when they try to impersonate @anon66442947…except for the 3:1 violations to landings ratio (not a typo) and not flying a Citation, they’ve almost got it.
I mean, many places have usernames that can only be taken once, and it works fine their. So I think it would be fine for Display names.
However, I do often change my display name if I’m flying for a VA (AeroSync - AIDoLS, United VA - AIDoLS, P&P - AIDoLS, IFC - AID oLS, etc), so I’m not down for permanent display names.
Yeah but how are the moderators or the system going to distinguish between the legimitate original user and other person who is copying the original user?
i think every player has an id kind of
I guess it will work like this, whoever get it first like VATSIM.
There will be a lot of unhappy people then.
