I just did the same. I was able to send messages, and they successfully appeared as ‘G4MWS’ (the Macc club callsign, that I used for the test). That was from my home PC here Roger, so I’m not sure why it didn’t work for you or Mike. Did you try setting up your ‘new’ account with a different email address to your normal one? I did, I used my work email for the new account. Perhaps Jon has written in a facility that prevents multiple accounts from the same email account holder. A sensible process; we are not talking sinister ‘Big Brother’ stuff!
The thing I was looking at was whether there was an email verification check. It appeared not. Whether that is something we need to address I’m not sure. SOTAwatch has existed for a long time, and has remained, with one or two exceptions, free from abuse. It will be looked at and discussed.
Yes, Jon GM4ZFZ is the person that can look into individual accounts with more detail. Let’s wait until he returns from whatever he is doing this weekend and has a look at things.
Thanks, Tom M1EYP
