I love vatsim especially with the new codec coming however I don't want people to publicly see my name, can there be a way to hide it, its making me not want to use vatsim

Ultimately, no. Reference - Code of Conduct A4. This isn't controlled by VATSIM UK.

I mean, people have lied about their name in the past to varying degrees of success (I wouldn't recommend it), but officially, no.

Hi Callum,

There is no way to hide your name. If you're worried about your current name, it's absolutely fine!

You'll be fine, you only get the occasional stalker

At the end of the day, your name being visible on VATSIM is no different to it being visible on any form of social media

Worth noting that this has recently changed; the Code of Conduct (A4(b)) now allows you to connect with your CID if you wish to do so.

You should be proud of your name Callum,the fact that you use Vatsim proves to other people that you are capable of being a pilot online.

      with Oculus Rift S being so cheap now I think more people are going to go for this. I personally have sold all my 737 cockpit parts. One thing is a problem on Vatsim and that's text messages can't be viewed in VR so when a controller is trying to get in touch with you, you can't tell so my proposal is can they not just speak to us through Unicom?

      I noticed, recently, that the Oakland vARTCC used to have the position BAY_TWR, which provided TWR coverage at KSFO, KOAK, and KSJC, two relatively large airports and a smaller one, and I was wondering if any consideration could be given to a similar idea in the UK, on a smaller scale, perhaps allowing EGKK_TWR to top-down EGKR, especially if they are already top-down the CTR, or perhaps for EGCC to top-down EGCB_I. This would allow some smaller/quieter airports to enjoy increased coverage, though controllers would perhaps need to exercise discretion with when these positions were opened and allow others to open the band-boxed sectors. Thoughts?

      I wouldn't say this is just for the UK division for vatsim in general. I think It would be good if you were able to change your call sign (Pilots) without having to disconnect from the network, maybe an addon for pilot clients?

      When Slack was first introduced it was a great app that enabled, and still enables all of the Vatsim UK members to have a chat, exchange opinions, organise flights and unwind.
      But I believe that Discord is now much better than Slack for text communications for the following reasons:
      Easier to access -most of the members and staff of Vatsim UK have a Discord account, new members are more likely to join Discord than Slack, because most people don't even know what Slack is The VATSIM.net official server for communications, and many other divisions are on Discord  Messages don't get deleted on Discord; If you need to find older messages on Slack you are out of luck Plenty of bots for easier moderation Much easier to implement something than Slack, it has a better API Roles can be useful for (new) members to identify staff and mentors Please respond with your opinion!
      Note: I am not talking about voice communications. This has been discussed already.
      The only downside that this move might have, will be the recustomisation of the bot that links Core-Slack, which I have no clue how hard it is to do.

      In the Vatsim UK Teamspeak, I believe Yorkshire should get its own room, 
      Reasons for this:
      1. Because Yorkshire is the best.
      2. Its the biggest county
      3. Yorkshiremen will sit in the room and be very welcoming
      4. Yorkshire gives people the best cup of tea
