Whats up admins? Do you really considered that rule? I dont know any other service in the web who force to show the real first and last name of the members public and visible for all. Every body can google much informations of all registered members here, whats about data privacy?Use of "Callsigns"
FSAirlines does not permit the use of anything other than your real first and last name in the appropriate fields. If you wish to use a "Callsign" (i.e. an airline ID) then set it up as your username when you sign up. If you do not currently comply with this, you will need to request it be changed by submitting a support ticket. We must know who you are to be able to verify when we receive payments for premium accounts and to ensure users are complying with our rules against multiple accounts.
How do you want to check whether the name a user type in is his correct real name? I can use "Donald Duck" as name, and nobody can check if its true, or i´m wrong? I have no problem the FSA Admins know my full name. Particularly with regard to the premium payments its comprehensible you have to know that user data. But why in hell every user in this system should now all real names of all pilots?We must know who you are to be able to verify when we receive payments for premium accounts and to ensure users are complying with our rules against multiple accounts.
What about the solution, you show public in the airline overview only a callsign or first name and callsign, and add a additional user field for real names only the admins can see? ...or maybe hide the existing fields of first and last name for all members and add a additional field for a public shown callsign?
