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 the safest approach would be to have a blanket rule, we've devised this page as a better compromise.

If you regularly use this site through a network or device you know others 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.

  1. The users involved will not be allowed to vote each others' posts. The inclination to vote a relative 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, as that is unfair.

  3. Networks with past issues regarding duplicate accounts require express moderator approval. We're also careful not to let this system be abused. No guarantees if you've breached our trust in the past.

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

  5. If any user involved does something to warrant a full IP ban, we'll apply it in spite of this agreement. You are collectively responsible for ensuring nobody on your network plays up.

And as an aside, if we can ascertain that you knowingly ignored this agreement (even though it applied to you), we'll obviously be very skeptical of your motives. Please do the right thing by everyone else who accepted this compromise. It goes a long way with us as mods too.

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

Why is this downvoted and flagged thrice?
Because he has been here for 9 months, and hasnt bothered to post earlier. And because of that, he could be trolling.
No I've seen him in chat before this is legit.
nerd isn't so bad, he called Skarm a no-life.
At least I edited it out. Plus, during last summer LinooneTate was my best friend. Although he didn't know it lol.
The last time I remember that LT was on consistantly was when I was Swaggron. I still have some chat quotes of his that make me laugh to this day :D

DT said it wouldn't hurt to include this so

12_Ghast is a classmate and friend from school. We're logging on from school laptops on a public network, so IP addresses may be the same/extremely similar. Don't ban us :P
