    Well, recently a member of my family wants to create an account (with a different email of mine, of course) and enjoy of this site like so many others. The fact is I have the fear if I could be banned -section 3(a)- if we would stay here at the same time with the same internet conexion/IP adress, or maybe if we play a game between ours. I have readed the terms of service, but it doesn't clarify my dude.
    Is that allowed?

    Thanks.

    Consider one of you using RHP and the other using Time For Chess or one of the other options. That way you won't be logged in as the other, fooling with each other's games or posting in the forums.

    If you are on separate computers, disregard my suggestion.

    Thanks for the responses. Similar to the thread, in that case I almost can create a new different account (but I couldn't play against my other account), no? or this entry in section 3(a)?

    Ps: out of curiosity, it doesn't means I'm going to create an account (but it would be perfect if I'm allowed to play with two accounts). I only want to have information, because my father's account maybe can confuse to admins. I hope to subscribe at the beggining of the next year

    You can only have one account. If there are other people on your same computer, they can also have one. Do not make an extra user name for yourself, one per person.

    If you are going to play a person on your same computer, take it easy. If your rating gets inflated from playing that one user other users are going to start sending feedback.

    If you're playing someone in your house and finishing several games a day and your rating is going up from that extra user at your house it's a warning flag to users that either you alone or someone in your house is helping the other get a better rating.

    Method:-
