Our approach to shared-network accounts

On PokeBase we have a strict policy against users who create more than one account. Extra accounts, commonly known as 'duplicate accounts', are blocked on sight. However, our means of tracking this can cause confusion with users who own separate accounts, but connect to the same network. While we could opt for the safest approach, which would be to block all accounts that come into question, we've decided to compromise.

If you regularly use this site through a network or device you know other users are using, leave an answer here indicating this, including a link to the account/s in question. Frequently, these accounts will belong to siblings, relatives and co-workers. This thread will act as a 'whitelist' of sorts to inform moderator decision-making.

So what's the catch?

To prevent abuse of the points system, ALL users in question must be in mutual agreement to the following rules regarding shared-network accounts, or moderators will block them like with all other 'duplicate' accounts.

  1. The users involved will not be allowed to vote each others' posts. The inclination to vote a sibling or colleague's posts is a threat to the integrity of our points system and is therefore disallowed wholly.

  2. You will not be allowed to answer each others' questions. Talk to each other if you know the answer! This prevents people from coordinating posts to gain points, which again compromises our site systems.

  3. Users who have previously had problems with duplicate accounts cannot participate in this agreement. If any user involved has breached our trust in the past, exception will NOT be made for them nor you.

  4. If any user involved breaks these rules, all accounts involved will come into question for a ban. If you cannot respect the terms of this agreement, we won't offer it to you. Do not ruin this for other people.

Thanks for your cooperation!

Only one of you is required to post. It can be your sibling or you. As long as one does so, the other one has no need to.
I accidentally made an account when i first joined, i never used it so please ban it? http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/user/DiancieDiamonds
Sorry but i completely forgot about it until now, and i want to just have it removed in case people suspect it as a dupe for upvotes and stuff
HelloBloon is a duplicate account.  I forgot the password.

I would've posted this sooner but I had no time, so sorry about that!
Do you still have the email for HelloBloon? If so you can just get that password back.
Why did you post it twice .-.
One time is all that is needed :P

Is the "," supposed to be there?

He meant that there was a comma tht was included in the hyperlink. I edited it to space the comma so it was no longer included in the link.
oh, okay

You post this because your account and your brothers account, being in the same household have the same IP adress. You post this so that the mods know that you are siblings, otherwise it will look like your brother is a duplicate account that you made.

But can i answer his Question? I see him pretty rarely these days, at least 8 times per year.
Can you call/ text/email him??
He doesn't have an email. Not cellphone. Call, pretty rarely because my home phone doesn't work  and my parents cellphone is with them.
How did he sign up for the DB without an email?
He used my other prank email xD
