Multiple Accounts Not Allowed at AVSIM

Recommended Posts

Members and potential members are reminded that the AVSIM Terms of Service (ToS) do not allow for multiple accounts (see the AVSIM ToS, link located under Forums menu).  If a multiple account is discovered, it will be merged with the oldest account or, in some cases deleted (i.e., duplicate accounts found while validating or the duplicate account was never used and there are no posts).  You will not be notified of the action taken in most cases as we do not have the manpower to provide the notification. 

Current members can send me a PM or use the form in the "Contact Us" menu above if they know they have a duplicate account and want to have the accounts merged.

I have found that most members set up duplicate accounts when they -

  • forgot their username/password
  • did not receive a validation e-mail immediately after creating an account or no validation e-mail received
  • successfully validated their account but could not sign in
  • inadvertently misspelled their e-mail address
  • have an IP address that our system has identified as one used for spamming worldwide.  These accounts are immediately banned by our system and any subsequent attempts to create an account using the IP address, username, or e-mail address will not be successful.

If you forgot your password/username, please report the issue using the form under "Contact Us" in the Menu above.  The same goes if you successfully validated your account but could not sign in.  We will assist you.  Please provide as much information as possible to help us find your old account such as possible usernames and e-mail addresses you might have used to set up the account.

If you do not immediately receive a validation e-mail from our system, it could have been sent to your junk mail folder.  Check.  If you own more than one e-mail address, check that e-mail account too as you may have used that e-mail address but forgot.  If you still have not received your validation e-mail, use the "Contact Us" form in the menu above and we will assist. 

If we see a misspelled e-mail address (i.e., gmial.com instead of gmail.com) we will correct it and resend your validation e-mail so that you can receive your validation e-mail but that will not always be the case.  Contact us if you suspect a misspelled e-mail address.

Individuals who post fake e-mail addresses so they can create multiple accounts will be banned or their accounts removed.

Please be patient when contacting us.  We try to respond immediately but may be working on other tasks or not moderating the system.  Normally we respond to all requests within 24 hours.

We appreciate everyone's cooperation.
