I am just making this notice, because in the past few days, we have seen a lot of validations where two different account share the same IP, and we have been PMed by different members, mostly using the excuse that a family member (their cousin, in these cases) is now sharing their laptop, which is why there are two different accounts to the same IP. It's okay if it happens as a 'once in a while thing' because we know it happens, but this many on this short a time period is making us suspicious (especially with the Dark Mark Awards around the corner). Just to give you a number, we've had about 6 of these cases in the past four days, which is a lot, especially considering that we normally only get 6 of these cases over the span of a couple of months.

I cannot stress enough that having multiple accounts is not allowed on this site, and any suspicious activity, or any try to get around this rule, will result in a permanent suspension and/or a full ban of the IP-addresses involved, so they can't be used anymore. So, please, while sometimes sharing the same computer can't be avoided, especially if it involves school computers, we none the less advice against sharing the same laptop/computer.

Thanks for your understanding.

Bumping this due to a recent issue.

Please avoid sharing computers with other members of this site. It creates a lot of confusion and upsets a lot of people if something goes wrong and the innocent person is punished for someone else's mistake. Do not let this happen to you! Do not log in to TDA from other people's houses and take care when using the site at school, work, the library, etc. Safeguard yourself as well as you can so that you will, at all costs, avoid a ban.
