I've been with Vatsim for over a week and have yet to receive a welcome e-mail with my registration info for VATSIM USA. I e-mailed the webmaster and did not get a response, so I decided to post a topic in the forums. I am interested in becoming a controller and a member of VATUSA , please send me some info at either [email protected] or [email protected]. Thanks!

Go to www.vatusa.org and follow the lost p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word procedure. The database does show you as a member of VATUSA, so now all you need is the p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word. Make sure you're using the same email address that you used when signing up for VATSIM, and that the email is not being blocked by any spam filters.

Jeff Thomas (VATUSA10) maintains the servers. I'm not going to reproduce his email here because of spam concerns, but click here and then click on his name.

 

I am actually fairly sure now that the server is not broken entirely because some new controllers have recently joined my ARTCC, but it does look like some people aren't getting added to the VATUSA database for some reason. The only guy who can fix this, as far as I'm aware, is Jeff Thomas.

Unless you're interested in controlling, you don't need to be a member of VATUSA. For pilots, having a VATSIM account that allows you to connect to the servers is enough.

 

The VATUSA website is having some issues and these are being discussed literally as I'm typing. It should be back shortly. Jeff Thomas, the administrator I mentioned above, is on vacation so it may take awhile for prospective controllers to hear back from him. If you are interested in controlling, my recommendation would be to email the facility chief of the center to which you'd like to be [Mod - Happy Thoughts]igned, and see if it's possible to start the initial training process while you're waiting. For example, at my facility, you have to complete a written exam before doing anything, and many people fail it the first time, in which case there's a 7-day waiting period before you can take it again. There are similar rules in other facilities, and/or instructors aren't always available at the drop of a hat. Might as well start the process while you're waiting to hear back from Jeff.

I've also been informed by new controllers that certain spam-blockers will prevent you from receiving your VATUSA p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word if you do not allow email from VATUSA. Your p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word is sent by an automated system, so there isn't a human who is going to fill out a request for access. You might also want to allow access for the Facility Chief of the ARTCC you plan to join. You'll be getting a lot of very important email from this individual.

I e-mailed Jeff a couple days ago so I'm hoping he'll reply soon. Thanks for the help.

I was the previous webmaster and still have access. I found a data issue and have corrected it. I have also verified your account is now in the system. You should have received an email.
