    I have a friend who wants to have a second account, so that he can keep certain areas of discussion separate from each other (IDK why...), and he was too scared to ask himself, so I am asking for him...

    Is it against the rules for one person to have more than one account?

    edit: Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    Yes, it is against the rules to have more than one account.

    Wish me luck he doesn't blow my head off when I tell him... XD

    Thanks, Raika [​IMG]

    Could a mod confirm this please? (not that I don't believe you, Raika, I just want verification [​IMG] )

    I'm not a mod, but I know for sure that it's against the rules.

    My question is, is that determined by IP address, or sign in ID (first and last name)? If you have more than one person in a household, can they each make their own account, even with the same IP? It doesn't matter to me, no one else in my house does this stuff, but it'd be nice to know that they thought of that (of course they did!... right?)

    It's against the rules, definitely. I'd want to know WHY he wants to discuss things with a different account depending on the subject though...

    Just use the same account for all discussion.

    It is indeed against the rules to have more than 1 account.
    On top of that, you have no need for multiple accounts (everything can be done on the first one) and it'd only confuse others.

    Normally, you need to let a staff member know about it, but if you behave (which I see you do as you both have 0%) I see no reason for a ban (we wouldn't probably even know about it anyway because we only check IPs of members that do not behave)

    We once even had 2 staff members who were husband/wife I believe, so they had the same IP as well. They got banned though, but not for sharing the same IP...

    Every single ban discussion topic always runs into talk about JPH. [​IMG]
