    Perhaps this is a security pb, but anyway this should not be the case: Every human beeing should have only ONE identity here at RHP...

    i am just trying to make a helpful suggestion. It seems that i can log on at one machine and if I forget to log out anyone that comes along and hits the site will be logged on as me. this isn't a good thing.

    right!
    but tell me any other computer-login-system which does not work like that: you come, log in, work, log out, go away. if you forget to log out: :'( trouble. the other solution would be: make every single move with a password request...

    my example would be MSN. I am particulary fond of the fact that i can log on say at home to msn messenger. Well If someone else is logged on when i do this I am disconnected at all other locations and a messege is sent to them stating that they have been logged out because I had logged on at another location. This is what I suggest. The reason I think it is important is because it prevents someone getting complete access to my account and thus fraudulently claiming to have had events occur which affected his standing as a player and customer. I also realize that a good idea is just a good idea, and can either be used or not. It is impossible for me to believe that something this simple can not be done that I wish i knew how to do it. I am sure that you can write a PHP script that checks the system time and logs activity through a particular site. Or even more simply to have a service on the linux server that monitors periodically the headers of packets that are changing a users settings, and making sure they are equal. If they are not the service disconnects the older one.
