Is this your character/account? If so, it appears it's still there and just needs to be /flushed rather than readded.

If you're getting no "Flushing" message from the command I would see if there's some settings for the character on your guildwork since the character is still there under your account. Mine began updating again straight away when I switched back to Shiva from Cerb so I'm not certain why it wouldn't be working for you.

It's possible the name was previously taken by someone else who played under the name before you made your character or transferred.

This could be the case with Sukoshi but I don't see another instance of Layowen in our DB.

When windower is open try like Xing out of it or like cntrl+alt+del force quitting ffxi while it's runnign then reload.

I don't know why but whenever I have the gw flush issue this makes it work for me

Hello necro:

Some friends tell me they have Guildwork functioning with out issue and I can see their character data updated.

After not playing for many years I have come back and changed servers from Fenrir to Asura. My character is Otomis and I do not believe any other characters name Otomis exist, not that I can find.

I am able to login to Guildwork with no issue; however, when I attempt to add/flush character I am getting the above mentioned status, "Otomis is added by another user".

I fully deleted my old Otomis character from Guildwork in an attempt to reconnect it.

I also tried the force disconnect a few times. and Direct 9/11 trick.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

I deleted my character in Guildwork because "/gw flush" said "Felgar is added by another user"

So, I login to Windower, and on my character type "/gw flush --add" and wait a few minutes, I see my character in Guildwork again. Therefore, this is how you proceed from this error message in this thread.

Unfortunately, the server IDs have since changed with the current version of Guildwork.dll and Guildwork.exe, so ...my character on Asura is linked to Unicorn, in inactive server: https://www.ffxiah.com/player/Unicorn/Felgar/

(This has nothing to do with server transfers, just inconsistent updates from Game -> GW and GW-> FFXIAH).
