Is it legal when 2 people run 1 province?

I was just wondering if people running 1 province is the same as a person running several provinces... or does swirve allow it?

I don't see the problem with it, assuming that it's the only account between them. Aside from varying strategy/forum activities, I can't see how they'd even tell, aside from IP adresses.

Of course, this might come under sharing of accounts...but if there's only 1 account for 2 people...gah, I haven't played in long enough

Two people can't run the same provence according to the rules. Go read them before asking questions like this please.

Wonderbread, for once it seems, is correct.

Most people in superkd's arent deleted because they are multi or traders, but for the crosslogins to be uberactive in war. And crosslogin is what you just stated. RUnning a prov with more then 1 person

It depends on the situation actually. If it is two people that are living together in the same house, using the same computer to login. I do not see that as illeagle or breaking the rules. That and if you do get deleted you will probably get reinstated...I have seen this done in the past with one of my old Regents... It was a husband and wife team... and it worked out fine because they worked seperate shits...

But if it is 2 people sharing an account from different computers/IPs it is illeagle and you can get deleted for it...

1. people in SKDs usually have rules against multing
2. Only a few kds cross log and they usually end up getting deleted.
And you do not need to be a crosslogger to have uberative people in war. It is called Planning, Timing and dedication. My army is never home for more than 3 minutes in a war.
3. Trading does happen, but than again that also happens in every kd. Yes even the small 2 million and less ones.

I know this is off topic, but it does not happen in every Kingdom. Currently, the Kingdom I'm in is in the top 5 honor in the world on WOL. And we pride ourselves for not cheating in any way. Of course, people can do that independently without letting the monarch or other players know, but if we ever catch wind of that, they're told off.

We've become what we are through sifting new players and actively sharing knowledge. And clearly, succes sparks activity.

I wish more Kingdoms would play like that, as it would be a lot more fair.

Yes, I know I can read: http://games.swirve.com/utopia/code.htm

"Users are allowed to maintain only their own account; under no circumstances should accounts be shared, traded, or managed by anyone other than the original owner."

But what I was just pointing out was that if the people live in the same house and their is no other accounts from their, their is basically no way to prove that 2 people are are running the same account.

no, not likely I am just saying one computer when two people playing an accoupnt because trying to login at the same time can be a dead give away.

I use to play from at least 10 different computers at for 6 ages when I was in college. But in reallity their where only 3 different ips. So you should be fine if your account is lagit.

Swirve most likely treated yours as a Static IP.

No, you don't get deleted for playing utopia from several computers. It even makes sense as well. Home, Work, Friends etc. can make you go online from several computers. To that you can add different wireless (unprotected) networks you use from time to time.
If you go abroad however, you should mail swirve so they don't think your account was traded.

This should be a common sense question without ever having to read the rules...

When you register for an account, does it say NAME or Name(s)? You input the information of the user for the account. If any of that information is ever incorrect then you're in violation of the rules. If you trade then it's now a new person on the account so name and location are forged, which is worthy of deletion. If you crosslog then someone else is on your account which is worthy of deletion. If you proxy then your account is listed from a different location other than where you are, which is worthy of deletion.

So in summary, it all comes down to the information that you put it when you register. Since there is no room to put multiple names, you may only put in one person's name and if you stray from this info (someone else plays it too) then that's making your account info incorrect and worthy of deletion.

Just about all deletable circumstances stem back to the info you put in the day you register
