Hello! I noticed in a thread that someone was deleted because they registered with different information using the same IP address.

Assuming that passwords were automatically sent, I tried to register with this board for about three days and never had luck getting a password. I used my e-mail address and I even used yahoo accounts and THREE different computers. I just received a password today. I know that passwords were probably sent to the yahoo acounts that I created, but I haven't checked any of them and don't plan to. This is the only log in name I'll use but I just wanted to make sure that my account didn't get deleted.

Hopefully yall understand what all that meant, lol.

Thanks!

So I'm

The reason that user's IPs and handles were banned was b/c we require that users register under one name. Registering under two or more and using them is against the guidelines, and makes life a little more difficult for us when answering questions, etc.

If I understand you correctly, do you have a password now? If so, use only the handle you have now (dandelionkate), and none of the other ones you created/have passwords for.

Really, we only know if users have multple handles if we check IP numbers, hunches we have, or similarities we see in posts. As long as you stick to one handle, you're fine. [Smile]

Okay, thanks! Yeah, I'm just using this username and password that was sent. The board kept saying that I was registered and my username would show on the main page as the newest member of the board but I would never get a password. I do have my password now and will only be using this one account. I don't think I could juggle multiple accounts anyway! I just wanted to make sure, lol, my luck I would have finally gotten registered and then my account would have been deleted! Thanks again!

Kinda related here- my sister wants to get an account for the boards, but since we both live at home we have the same IP address (I think that's how it works right? Even if there's 2 different computers?).

Would we be at risk of having accounts deleted by mistake?

Thanks, and sorry if this is off topic [Smile]

That won't be a problem, leabug, just as long as you both use your seperate accounts exclusively.

Usually when a staff member finds multiple handles for a user, they simply ask them which they want to keep and delete the others. Only members who use multiple handles to try to decieve us or get around the rules get in trouble. [Smile]
