    Its alright if my sister makes an account here?

    mostly because people have gotten banned for having multiple accounts.
    I just want to make sure I don't get an ip ban for multiple accounts on 1 IP Address

    There is no way for GBATemp or any website to determine alt accounts just from the IP address. if this were the case, most of us here would be banned for alternate accounts just because of IP address sharing that happens with VPNs or using cellular connections.

    Hell
    You should be fine. As long as the staff is aware of the situation, you won't be banned, despite the shared IP.

    Have you never admin'ed? You can log and compare ip's to accounts. Most forum software has ip banning as an option to disallow accounts from the same address. It only works because the server can, and does, look at ip's. Most administrators just don't worry about it unless an account holder is causing problems.

    As long as your sister isn't logging into your account and vice versa, it's fine.

    Well, @vinstage and I managed to pull it off. She PMd a Mod beforehand, and they gave her advice.

    I hope there won't be no creepy twin business like on some tv shows where they do that kind of thing. :P (joke)

    I dunno, is a thread asking a question concerning IP ban system, so I mean is not a court case or anything, there no win. Is just a question for not breaking rules, unless you call breaking a rule and escaping punishment winning. :P

    Eh, I don't know anymore.

    This is gonna sound weird, but it's normal for younger siblings to be taller than older ones in layer years. I forgot why, though.

    Nah she means it in a sibling way. As in, a tit for tat thing. I shouldn't have brought height into it, but it's more of an inside joke. Where I'm taller by a few inches, she's older by a few years.
    Where on earth you's got winning a thread from I have no idea.
