    Does anyone know if it's poosible for two people to share the same
    computer to access RHP using two different AOL screen names without
    all the information from Name 1 being shared with Name 2?

    In other words, I want the other person to be able to log on to
    www.redhotpawn.com without them being greeted with 'Welcome back
    Rhymester'.

    Any ideas?

    So, are you asking that when people sit at your machine and want to use redhotpawn that aren't
    you, can they access the site without you being automatically logged in??

    If that's the question, then all you need to do is log out of RHP when you finish using it - next time
    someone visits the site from that IP, it will go straight to the log in screen...

    Thanks kyngj - it looks as though that's the only solution. It also
    highlights the point that logging off from sites when using shared
    computers is a good practice to get into.

    Definitely, imagine waking up to find that 40 or so games (as I'm used to playing) have had
    moves made in them "on your behalf", it would be a nightmare!

    Has happened to me in the past ... because I do not have a PC and
    have to go to the Internet Cafe, sometimes when the site is down I
    cant log off and so have to leave MY account open - The anger I have
    when someone else makes MY moves .... ooooh I could crush a
    grape !

    That must be irritating. Maybe when the take the site down they
    should log everyone off...

    That's right! I was thinking the other day that there should be
    connection timeouts (e.g. 1 hour after the last interaction) to avoid
    those kind of problems.
