Is this on April 30th as shown in the VATUSA calendar or August 30 as shown in the event banner?
Probably April 30 since that's a Friday.

Hi Jonathan, welcome to VATSIM. Typically, you should give the ARTCC you join 48-72 hours to process your information. With that said, a login to the website should work almost automatically (assuming they gave you worked, you were probably approved in some way). I'd suggest reaching out to the ATM or DATM for further support. Some ARTCCs may be more or less active than others, but you should get a response within the next few days hopefully.

General Discussion / Re: Mode C Transponders
« on: December 09, 2018, 08:18:24 pm »
I always leave my transponder on when flying in the real world. There is no benefit to turn it off unless you are trying to hide from ATC. If I'm not speaking with anyone, I sure want them to be able to see where I'm at better in case they're pointing me out to someone else. I'm not really sure what realism you're trying to go for here... There are planes without transponders and I guess some people leave it off, but I'm not going to turn my transponder off just because I left a Mode C veil or entered class E airspace.

I'd like more transparency in the division regarding the state of VATUSA. We haven't held a townhall in quite some time and I feel like I'm out of the loop in terms of what is happening at the division level. I know that I, as well as other members of my facility, have questions and concerns about how the division is operating. I call question to sudden and frequent staff changes. As an outsider who is not a staff member (and does not have access to staff related forums), I cannot tell if this division is being run into the ground or not. While this division may not be a dictatorship, there are enough obscurity and lack of public forum that it is impossible to differentiate what is going on at upper levels from that of an authoritarian regime.

Regarding communications between ARTCCs, I find no issue in how ARTCCs are running right now. I have 8-10 ARTCC's teamspeak/discord information and find it fairly easy to just hop in and have conversations as desired. My ARTCC frequently sees guests from other ARTCCs participating in conversation.

By the way, if people want absolute realism, I hear there's some federal agency that'll pay you for absolute realism.  Can anybody confirm?
Some of us have different aspirations that your own. And some facilities have different aspirations as your own. To say that people in this division should not partake in realism if they so desire, is a disappointment. You diminish the value of other people's interests by making these egregious statements.

If I said "by the way, if people want absolute fun, I hear there's a bouncy castle and petting zoo they can go to," think about how that would come off to someone that wants to have fun.

Well done!  Great video.  Gave me the idea of highlighting aircraft after the handoff to the tower. (Useful)
A handful of places do this in the real world. In the Miami ATCT, they highlight aircraft once they've been cleared to land and in the TRACON, they highlight aircraft once they've been switched to tower.
