I've been playin but finally got hubby to play also

Hi, MiniMe here.... I am announcing that my husband and I have 2 computers and are using different usernames but the same password. Will this be considered a dual account even tho we both play on seperate computers using a router?

He just made his account as Jiralrarra (wookie sound) and my name is Leelahfwen Flangermungle or Leelahfwek Flangermugel.

Please let me know if this is a non-issue as someone in game told me they were banned until they wrote to you stating they had a roommate who also played.

Thanks,

MiniMe

PS you guys are sooooo awesome and the game is stupendously delicious!

Since you were able to create two different accounts and none of them was banned, there is no issue, or need for any kind of intervention from mods.

Have fun and enjoy yourselves.

Unfortunately, I discovered yesterday that this was an issue for my boyfriend, when he make his own account on his own computer on the local network we have in the house. Waiting to hear back on this and in the meantime he's made a character on my account.

Above poster might want to send them an email preemptively.

Preemptive e-mails will not help and will only clog up the inbox. Please only send an e-mail if an account is banned.

Hmmm, well people using two accounts are all family members, but there is an issue of account sharing. So even though i don't think this is really an issue, as long as you all have your own toons, maybe you should consult a Mod just in case.

No we don't share toons we all made that very clear to each other. We have gamed together in other games and very specific rules about logging in each others toons.

The problem arose when we all tried to make seperate accounts they banned my husbands and sons accounts immediately. My account went through so I told my son he could make a toon on mine since he never played the original SWG. My husband sent several emails and received no response. While registering it said that my primary email was already in use. Which was odd I didn't remember registering for an account but I must have ages ago. I tried to have a password reminder sent but that didn't work. So I figured it was a bug and made the new account. Later, when the server was restarting, I did a search on a couple of character names I use frequently and there she was. It took me a few tries to get the password but I finally got it. When the hubs didn't get a response to the last email I told him to just make a toon on that account.

So now all 3 of us can hunt together. I was reading somewhere on these boards that having the same router will prevent accounts for additional family members? I don't know that much about networks or that stuff.

Yea, accounts with the same IP address get banned (last one created), but send an email to community@swgemu.com if and when it get banned and a mod will fix that in a few days.

Like i said, lets wait for a member of the STAFF to see this.

Thanks for that info. I had a friend send a preemptive e-mail and she never heard back. Now that her husband has finally taken interest in getting back on board he hogs up both slots most of the time. Will tell her to go ignore the torpedoes and go full speed ahead.

Preemptive emails don't really help since we can't do anything till the account is created. Just email community@swgemu.com and include the account names in question, and an explaination, and things should get sorted out.
