    wondering, if creating a second account for purely 'educational' * purposes constitutes as violation of 3(a) of RHP's ToS?

    * I'd like to set up several 'set pieces' games (of some particular games I had won/lost) and re-play them with another person here on RHP but he is a non-sub and already has a max of 6 games going (regular RHP games).

    I do think so because "creating a second account" does not equal

    "(a) You will not create more than one account."

    Yes it is against the rules but in my opinion I reckon many, many non subs that want more than 6 games in progress do it

    After your first account gets banned, you create a second one

    That also appears to work successfully

    I'd like a second account for educational purposes... then I'd teach some people a lesson they wouldn't soon forget!~

    thanks all... but that wouldn't "solve" the problem. The idea was to have this account to solely play unrated 'set piece' games therefore abiding all the 'fair play' rules etc.

    The best way to know for sure is send feedback and ask the administrators. They might say yes. But I doubt it.

    Interesting idea but I imagine it would create a lot of resentment if specific non-subscribers were allowed access to play more games (even set piece ones) through multiple accounts.
