Online ID making trouble. Please help moderators?

5 replies 185 views Edited Mar 4, 2013

I've found a major and extrelemy stupid bug in  the system that creates Online ID's. It is as follows:

 

You go on your PS3, type out ALL the information, pick an Online ID you want, and click continue. But you then decide it would be better made on a computer instead, so immediately after the continue stage, decide to cancel off the PS3. 

 

You then go to a computer, type in the EXACT SAME information, AND Online ID, and it tells you it is no longer available. When it is, because it was a minutes ago. FIX THIS, THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. 

 

The ID I want to make is "LilMiss2DarnGood" and the exact scenario as above happened to me and now I can't have it even though it JUST allowed me to. Can you PLEASE fix this problem so I can make this ID?!

 

PROOF IT HAS NOT BEEN TAKEN BY ANYONE ELSE AND IS IN FACT A GLITCH IN THE SYSTEM: http://us.playstation.com/publictrophy/index.htm?onlinename=LilMiss2DarnGood

 

Right there. It's NON EXISTANT! So WHY can't I make the ID anymore? Is the ID locked now because of a technical issue no one bothered to correct? Can you please help me out here? This is infuriating and completely unacceptable.

the solution is to only setup the account once - once you create an ID Sony reserves it, whether it is active or not

 

in other words only use your PC or PS3 to setup an ID, not both

I don't see the problem unless you are trying to make alternate accounts for you ps3 and to post on the forum seperately so no one knows who you are in game.

Oh calm down. The ID is taken. This isn't a bug to me since I've been aware of this for some time now. Half of us here knows when you make an account here and not on a PS3 it doesn't sync the way you think it would.
