I'm also not sure if my sdf membership has been upgraded to full (I did make the paypal payment but not sure if I allocated it to the USA or Euro bit of sdf and am not sure how to check what facilities I currently have, still very new to sdf..)
SDF.eu is, IMHO, lamentably isolated from the US server and undermaintained (even worse than SDF proper). I would not be surprised to find out that no membership level on the EU server gives you access to the VOIP system, but I could be wrong.
unifo returns that
has validated my account (its still not clear to me which level of membership I actually have. Some commands are however available I couldn't use when I first joined.
I tried to make a homepage which sort of works but gives a permissions error when attempted to access from "outside"); and eventually want to use the gopher but need to remember how to work that!
@vfrmedia @tomasino @nydel If validation is the last event listed, then you are "just" a "validated user" (the second part of "USERS (free)" at http://sdf.org/?join). A one time payment of US$36 will permanently promote you to ARPA level (which is what I'm at) and give you access to the VOIP system. You could run `uinfo solderpunk` to see how your own `uinfo` output would look after that.
