Question about roommate joining.
« on: February 25, 2017, 07:02:11 AM »
hi, this is probably a stupid question. My new roommate accidentally found out what i was doing here, and now she wants to join. But I know the site is very strict on people having multiple accounts, and uses IP and device to check for that.

As she'll be using my hardware for a while at least, until she has the money to get her own, what do we need to do to avoid being flagged as a duplicate account?

Not a stupid question at all! Actually it is a very good one. ^.^ Usually you just alert a staff member to the situation so they can know when their introduction thread pops up. It's what I did when my SO joined. :)

There's one pitfall, where if you post at the same moment, one of you may lose your post. That almost never happens (only rarely), and it's not going to happen if you're both using the same computer.

I did notice that Lisa logged in on the laptop, and a few minutes later I logged in on the desktop, and she got logged out, is that WAI or is there something wrong in our setup?

I've not known for that to be an issue before. We have lots of couples logging in from the same IP, or even me logged on from different PCs.

it doesn't happen when I login on different devices. We just had a few times where I logged in on one device, Tam logs in on the other, then I'm logged out. It's not a big issue thanks to lazarus, but we were just wondering.
