Duplicate Accounts

Hello, all.

I would just like to let you all know that having another account on spyroforum (That you may or may not post on) is not allowed and will not be tolerated.

If you currently have another account on spyroforum, PM me NOW and tell me what your duplicate account is. I will then have to ban it, because we do not allow such things. If you suspect anyone of having a duplicate account, feel free to rat them out to me. tongue

If you do not tell me, or create another one, me and the other staff WILL find out, and consequences will occur.

Thanks for your co-operation,
-Spyrorocks

How frequent will you be checking the IPs?

Re: Duplicate Accounts

How will you know if it's someone's other account?

Re: Duplicate Accounts

There's a moderator function that allows them to view the user's IP Address. An IP Address... ugh, how do I explain it... is the 'name' (sorta) of the combination of the internet connection and the computer identification that the user has previously used to post.

Re: Duplicate Accounts

Gosh, that was a confusing explanation. I know what an IP Address is, but that explaining it really IS hard! O.o

So, what would happen if you can't log into your account? I've seen on other forums that that has happened a lot before.

Re: Duplicate Accounts

Ah, I see. I don't have any problems, though. O.o I was just wondering if that ever DOES happen to me.

Now I know! =]

Re: Duplicate Accounts

To answer a few questions about the ip's, Yes there is a log. And you can see each machines ip used to make the posts.
So if you use your pc at home more then the libraries pc, Then we know what ip is the common one used.

If it is a dynamic ip, we can see a general static part of the ip which lets you know it is the same pc.

So to see if someone has more then one account would be easy to see. If it was looked at even once a month.

Re: Duplicate Accounts

This could also pose a problem. Say a person has a sibling that's a Spyro fan and joins from the same computer, or any of the computers in the house that share a router. They'll all have the same IP-Address. I have 2 siblings, but none of them like Spyro, so it doesn't matter for me, but for someone it does, well... it wouldn't be fair to penalize them if they're not at fault. That's why I suggest that there should be a question as to whether or not that person has siblings that like Spyro, so there won't be any confusion.

Re: Duplicate Accounts

First of all, we ask them if they have another account on this forum. If they say no, then we bring up the issue of the same IP addresses. Thats when they either say its a sibling, or that it is another account.

Re: Duplicate Accounts

Well, I know that, but SpyroGirly101 is my cousin and sometimes she uses my computer because she comes to my house A LOT. I guess you can tell that I am not using a duplicate account though, because she uses her home computer also.

There are people with dynamic Ip addresses that will change consistently.

Whatcha do then.

Re: Duplicate Accounts

It doesn't matter, I can see what IPs you have previously posted on as well.

For dynamic ips, ISPs are licensed a certin rage of ips, like lets say 234.54.0.1 to 234.54.255.255, but the starting will always be the same (234.54.xxx.xxx)

Re: Duplicate Accounts

As long as people are honest and manage the accounts properly in accordance to the rules, there shouldn't be any issues.
