The VATSIM Australia Pacific Forums have recently been upgraded. In addition to security and system updates, we've teamed up with VATSIM to trial the new VATSIM Authentication system - VATSIM Connect. One of the major changes with VATSIM Connect is that you, the user, have more control over what data you share with an organisation.
What does this mean for the forums?
To access the VATSIM Australia Pacific Forums, we need your Full Name and Email. When prompted on the VATSIM Connect website, you'll need to click authorise to successfully login to the VATPAC Forums. If you choose not to give the data we require, we'll be unable to authenticate you and you'll be unable to use the forums.
It's saying "These credentials do not match our records"?
Your Password is case sensitive. Even if you think you've been doing it right, please check your password and ensure all capitalisation is correct.
Otherwise, the authentication is very similar to before. It's simply utilising a new system VATSIM's developing for global use. If you do have any questions regarding your privacy or have any issues, you can get in touch with me via email.
