Given that the "troll" you mention has been flying since 2015, I'm not convinced he's trying to use your name. Perhaps there is someone else called Pavlin ?

BTW - it's not possible to ban people from MP, nor is it possible to "reserve" your MP callsign.

agreed with Stuart, look at the staggering number of T(h)orstens active in this community, so it's not exactly unprecedented - it's a namespace collision, as simple as that.
I suggest to read up on Nasal namespaces to learn what you can do about this (just kidding).
Please don't send support requests by PM, instead post your questions on the forum so that all users can contribute and benefit
Thanks & all the best,

If the guy is called Pavlin and not PavlinS. And he does not pretend to be you, he is not a troll.

People know your called PavlinS, so its clear that its not the same person. I think most people will realize that.

Yes I agree with Necolatis. If I encountered this situation online, I know with your activity on the forum and YT channel this is unlikely to be you and would simply ignore them. Plus you are PavlinS and I know that. Best course of action is to ignore them.

On the plus side, your name is around the FG community enough that people think it would be worthwhile to troll as you... :)
