Multiple accounts are NOT permitted.

How many times do I need to create these sorts of threads?

DUPLICATE ACCOUNTS ARE NOT PERMITTED.

We have been getting very aggressive in enforcing this; if you find you were banned, don't create new accounts.
Also note: using other people's computers will also trip the detector. I don't know how many times I've got to say this... but BEFORE CREATING NEW ACCOUNTS OR USING OTHER ACCOUNT-HOLDER'S COMPUTERS, EMAIL support@swgemu.com with 'Account Issue' as the subject.

Just for reference, we get several hundred duplicate users per week. PLEASE. Stop making our lives more difficult than they already are.

Is there not something you can script that will do the job automatically?

There are; we just installed a new one last night that bans duplicate users. The problem is I've got 15+ emails and PMs where a user asks why he/she was banned; it's always because they made multiple accounts or used someone else's computer (who was already registered) to create the account.

Okay. Can you not add a line of code that emails them explaining why they were banned?

Just speaking for myself, when I first found this project, I read *alot* of the documentation of what you guys had done and expected from your testing users.

My point is, not everyone is as voracious a reader (or rule-follower) as I am. I think the multiple accounts policy should be part of the "How to install LPE" post, if it isn't already.

This isn't about multiple clients/toons, this is about multiple accounts.

I'm interested in how you are determining the use of multiple accounts. If it is via IP, then there are 3 people in my house that play Emu, usually on different computers (for obvious reasons.)

It would be much easier if people understood they don't need multiple accounts for multiple characters, then you guys wouldnt need to keep removing duplicates. Unfortunately that seems to be the main issue of free accounts, it doesnt cost money to make a new account like it would with SOE.

I figure its easier just to simply not create more than one account...
Why must people always make things complicated?

I have a wireless router and 5 computers in my house that are connected to it. Three are directly plugged in and 2 are laptops that connect wireless. I also have 3 people in the house that play SWG and 3 who do not. If I'm in my bedroom playing and it gets late and my wife wants to sleep, are you saying that I cannot log off and switch to the computer in my office which may have been used to create my son's account?

Seems a lot of people here don't understand the basic issue.

The Devs want it to be 1 Account per person. You can have as many characters as they allow you to have on that 1 account. Also every other person in your house can have their own account. This is why they are saying to mail them, so they dont ban people who genuinely share computers or internet connections.

And, once again, what keeps people from just lieing? It cannot be policed, so why even try? It's like the drug war!

@xaat Great post man, and don't let these trolls get to you. You have proven that a lot of members never post because they don't want to be attacked.

@dj no, xaat and me are two different people, and I dont even know him. You are the one that posted a screenshot, and all i did was ask you about it.

that's not true. A more accurate statement would be that there is no 100% effective system, but it can definitely be policed.
