That thread is 8 years old… don’t create a new reflector account, you need to have your username changed by the admins. PM me or Jim g0cqk with your new call.
For SW3 and newsotadata, you can change the callsign yourself. Log into SW3, click your old callsign in the top right and then update account. Your callsign will change on SW3, newsotada, SOTA mapping site and SOTL.as.
For SW2… please start using SW3. Likewise for the database stop using the original sotadata database as it will be switched off very soon.
It was good and valid information back then Sabrina because it described exactly how to update your call sign. The new software used does allow people to change their information but we (the admins) had to disable it as people would change it from their call sign to nick-names etc. We want everyone to use their call sign and so you need to ask first. The change is easily done but can only be made by admins. Of course if people only used their call sign there would be no problem and we could re-enable it.
Good to know, thank you.
I think this is also one of the reasons why you have such a great community and ham spirit here. I feel like in a online forum where nobody reveals their identity you have a very bad “climate” from time to time. People will write things that they would never say in the real world because they think no one knows who they are.
I was looking at this and thought it’ll be a migrate fail, checked it was, went to confirm it was broken so I could check I’d fixed it and it worked. “Hey what’s happening here…”, checked and the missing data was now there. Then found Andrew’s reply.
