Making an account on the forums does not require you to read any of the posts...and most people don't.

They say "I want to play" so they download the launcher and realize they need a forum account, so they create one, then another, then another...then they log on.

It's not rocket science, most people hate the forums and avoid them at all costs.

Pretty much exactly what I did. However I would like to bring up that as a new user with little knowledge of testing procedures, it can be intimidating to make a post without taking in the community silently for awhile to make sure you know what to say.

For example, if I just came on here and said "Hey this is awesome guys! When do you think it will be ready," most of you would probably want to rip the keyboard out from under my fingers.

Take us silent folk with a grain of salt, once we get into the groove of things we'll come out of the wood-works.

I believe he sent PhantomLord an email regarding this, but am not sure as he had to go out on business for a while. I will also send an email to be sure. We have yet to experience any issues, but for the sake of both our accounts i will double check.

So what if 2 people with 2 different computers (and different accounts) were playing on the same network?

Is there anything that I can read on this subject? I am interested in how multiple accounts are being tested, and what the plans are to resolve this dillema.

I just read through about 5 pages of this thread and I haven't seen once where "Multiple Computer's" is defined.

When you say multiple accounts are not allowed per computer, does per computer mean.

A) Per actual workstation

- or -

B) Per external IP address

As, I seriously doubt you have any way of actually tracking which "workstation" the logins are coming from, I'm assuming you mean external IP address, and if this is the case these attempts to ban accounts that come from the same IP unless they email you is just dumb. Unless you want to go through 1000 emails a day attempting to determine ( which its impossible to ) if there story is legit. That's a lot of work for a CSR. As a matter of fact, that's more work than some people get PAID to do and these CSR are doing it for free. This whole situation is just dumb and a new system needs to be worked out.

When you look at a game like galaxies or wow or whatever, the only thing keeping people from having multiple accounts was how much real money they wanted to put into this game. If you cant keep EVERYONE from multiple accounts your just making it unfair for everyone else.

Hey, I need a dev to help me set up an account for my dad... We will be playing from the same house. I tried to send an e-mail to Phantomleader yesterday... and I sent him a message on this site.. I haven't gotten a response, so it would be appreciated if I could get some help setting up my dads account so that it doesn't get banned for multiple accounts.

Developers do not deal with accounts, they develop code. You can create your account for your father, and then PM me him account name, and I'll take care of it.

Ahoivik. Multiple accounts seems pretty self explanatory. More than 1 account. Forum accounts are linked to TC. You are permitted one. As to explaining in detail what checks we use, we won't be disclosing that, sorry. As to the work I/we do on this, it's not quite 1000 emails/day, but it's a lot

alright thank you, I'll send you a pm.. but the reason I sent phantomleader an e-mail is because on the first page of this thread it says to send an e-mail to phantomleader or you if you need to set up another account

Similar problems exist over at EQEmu.

That happens often. In such an instance the administrators need to be informed.

Oh... informed, eh? Well, in that case, I was making account for my little brother (he's computer illiterate and had no idea how, lol) And made CalebElLoco. However, I entered an email address that apparently got erased, and couldn't get it activated, so I made him another account, CalebTHEloco (lol). The Second one is now banned?
