Re: STO Trek BBS Fleet

I'm having trouble even finding the KDF fleet in the list. Can someone send me a nudge?

The KDF fleet is called House of TrekBBS.
As per usual let us know your toon's name@handle for an invite or mail one of us in game.

I confirmed my handle by writing "Hi" to the chat window in game, it then shows both on there.

Name is whatever you named the specific character, the handle is the username you use to log in.

Re: STO Trek BBS Fleet

Well, name is your character's name, handle is your user's account name, by writing it in said format you can receive invites and messages.
For some things like mails the account handle (@Timelord_Victorious) is enough. Fleet invites are character specific and require the character's name.

Not quite. The login name is not the same as user name. Please don't post your log in name anywhere. There have been cases of account hacking and giving people half the log in data is a serious security risk.

I'm not sure what you mean. My username is the one I use to log in. And the @handle part of the character@handle name.

Mine isn't and I think it was not even possible to pick the same one (it's been more than 2 years, so I can'T really be sure).

the reason for that is security, so someone can't simply pick up your name in zone chat or something and effectively guess your password to rob you clean.

And it's not just virtual stuff.

Imagine someone hacking into your account and buying a 1000 master keys which he then transfers into his account through 2 or 3 fleet banks or the exchange and then sells them for a small fortune (a real one).

And you are broke in real life...

Re: STO Trek BBS Fleet

Unless you pay by credit card, which I think is required. Then its fraud, easy to fight, and doesn't cost you. Hassle, but not money.

Risk is to your EC in the bank, which Cryptic has fought replacing when stolen. CP is through them, and they can control that transaction, and have been fixing when hacked, I believe...

Re: STO Trek BBS Fleet

Yeah, you may get everything back with enough effort, but I still would recommend not letting it happen in the first place

Obviously, just pointing out that while it might take 2 minutes on the phone to sort out, your assertation about being broke in real life over this was nonsense.

Unless your credit card is provided by Libertarian Bank or something...

Tried inviting you, says you're already in a fleet. Didn't see you on our roster, so either I'm doing something wrong, or you joined another one already.

Can only be in one, so gotta leave that one if you want to join ours. Grab whatever it lets you grab from their bank on the way out
