Two boats with the same name: how to deal with it?
Post by iconPost by lotsemann | 2015-04-19 | 23:51:17

Hi,


I had a problem with my previous VR account and had to delete it. Later, I created a new account and used the same boat name. So far, so good.

The problem comes when I use zezo in the VOR. It can only find the "old", inactive Lotsemann, and I would like to be able to use the router for the "new" Lotsemann.

I tried to change the boat name, but I am not allowed to.

Any ideas, please?

You can try contacting the game support/moderators about the name change.

Unfortunately I ask the game server about the boat name and not by the unique numeric id, so can't fix it on my side.

hi,
I've changed the name of my boat just recently - it's on virtualregatta page -

Hi, mpako!

The VR site tells me (in French) that my last boat name change is too recent.

The one I am trying to do would be the first one.

Cvetan,

That's ok. On the bright side, your answer came quite quickly -- I am still waiting for the VR support to reply... In the meantime, I will be doing it partially by hand.

By the way, would it be feasible and useful to create a way to enter coordinates manually?

You can enter decimal degrees in the address - lat=x&lon=y

Maybe a page where you paste the profile info (in the form of)

Latitude 26° 02' 09.9" S
Longitude 45° 58' 37" W

and get back a link could be useful as a backup in similar cases.

Exactly what I have been doing these days, Cvetan. And it's working decently enough, it seems. Thanks for your attention and work!

Good morning from Brazil!

For the record, VR has just changed my boat name to Lotseman at my request.

It took ten days... But better late than never!
