    To quote the site's terms of service - sub-para 3a of 'Your Registration Obligations':

    "You will not create more than one account."

    So, no, you shouldn't play under more than one name. People have done in the past for various reasons. Is it a big deal? I am unsure -

    In one way, it doesn't really bother me as long as the first account is completely abandoned and the player is not playing under two identities simultaneously.

    On the other hand, it really annoys me that people sign up to things and then think that the rules (which they agreed to) don't apply to them because they see themselves as so damned important.

    But did I really agree?

    Maybe I pushed the button because I wanted to play some chess games.

    I mean, do any of us read the boilerplate legal stuff we 'agree' to when we install almost any piece of software? I know I don't.

    A blind eye is turned to multiple accounts (dual accounts) if you can spell correctly.

    Non-subs can have only 6 games. Two accounts would allow 12.

    That said, not all dual account people do so to get around the limit. I think some just like to post in forums under a different pseudonym than the one they play under.

    How do you brake rules? Pull the reigns and say whoa??!!
    And will this duel ever take place with banjos?
    Dude, either put up or shut up or use spellcheck.

    Afraid spell-check won't help with 'wrong words'. Over-reliance on spell-check actually encourages them.
