Well...  let's go down these one by one....

Yep, I can!  Looking at your record, it's because you haven't requested one.... 😉

What "admins" have you tried to get in touch with, and how?

Which button?  URL?

Again, according to your account, you've never requested a reset....

i tried reactivating my account but it doesnt need to...

Correct, because your account is active.

Of course not, that would be against the User Agreement and Code of Conduct

 

I wonder if somehow you have found an old link or button somewhere, hence why I asked "which button."  If there's an old link out there, I'd like to get it removed.

 

I wonder if you've checked out the Members tab on the VATSIM home page, and tried clicking on the link for Member Help?  Then you would click on the "Forgotten Your Password" link.

Alternatively, you could go to my.vatsim.net and click on the "Forgotten Password" button.

Or, you could go to support.vatsim.net and go to FAQ #3.

 

Please let us know what you've tried, and then try one of the 3 options I provided above.

VAT-Spy is not malicious.  Thousands of us run it daily with no ill effects.  Ensure you get the latest version from https://vatspy.rosscarlson.dev/

vattastic isn't something you need to "get" -- it's a web-based VATSIM activity map.  It will show all controllers and pilots connected, regardless of which simulator they're using.  Pilots on VATSIM may use FS9, FSX, FSX:SE, X-Plane 10, X-Plane 11, one of several versions of Prepared, MSFS2020, and/or FlightGear.  They all end up in the same virtual world together.

There is also SimAware.ca (aka map.vatsim.net) which does essentially the same thing, plus numerous other apps and tools which can show who's online.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,

-R.
