Unfortunately, this message board
does not permit some names that
bzflag permits.

I have been using a callsign with
the dot character (".") for some
time. It is a meaningful callsign.
But I can't register it here.

yes you are corect. The game also supports LAN and non globaly registered play, so it supports a larger set of names. If you wish to use a global name then your name must fit the message boards subset of names.

Yes. Use exspastic as your callsign. In the Password: field under where you put in your callsign type the password you use here. If all works you should get a + sign next to your name in the score list.
