Explanation Needed.

Falkuon and Uvthenfuv, what do you have to say for yourself(s)?

?

same ip address

And, indeed, join date.

They both registered on the 11th of December.
So why’d Uv only join today?

How do you know that, teddy?

I was just on IRC at the time, that’s all

<Ienpw_III> go here: http://blognomic.com/update/index.php?S=88798c759f29def4689dbcc5585f8e56d8b86c3d&C=admin&M=members&P=member_search
<Ienpw_III> and do an IP search for 84.0

is how any admin could find out, I think

Or you could simply click on the two players’ member accounts from the admin tab.

oh please. why do things the easy way? :P

Guessed someone would ask that. : ) We’re siblings. Originally my thought chain was something like the following:
‘I’ll register and join the game! -> Eh, I’m too shy to make that post. -> Hey, I should join after all.’
Whereas after I told Falkuon the game rules, he joined fairly fast… (I hope he won’t just forget about it one of these days)
BTW 1: Why were spivak pronouns removed from the game?
BTW 2: Why are GNDT passwords (or at least mine) vulnerable to a dictionary attack? I looked around, and couldn’t find one, so is there a way to change it?

Sorry if my English is of varying quality, it’s a bad habit of mine to overcomplicate stuff I’m writing : /

1: someone thought they were un-fun so passed a proposal to get rid of them

2:  the GNDT passwords are vulnerable to more than that.  In practise, it hasn’t been a problem.  They only control the GNDT, which is a single app running on our server, so there’s not a lot of incentive to break them.

I find it incredibly amusing that Wak, of all admins, made this post.

Or should I say… “Qwaz”?

Ienpw III:

Darth: Yeah, I kept my mouth shut, but I was thinking the same.

Uv: If you really want to change it, just PM an admin, but keep in mind that any admin can see it.

Qwazukee:

Haha what’s funny is, now that I’m home on break, Wak and I may be using the same IP again….

Are you two related? I’ve always wondered why your names are so similar.

Ornithopter:

I just want to repeat this for emphasis:

Every admin can see all GNDT passwords, so don’t ask us to change yours to a password that’s important to you.

Qwazukee:

Haha, yeah he’s my brother, which caused some confusion 6 Dynasties or so ago, even though I had already said he was my bro.

Wakukee:

12-20-2009 18:25:41 UTC

AActually, that is why I posted “please explain” as opposed to “please ban”. :P. Welcome, but expect at least a bit of suspicion, and no matter what you do, don’t post as the other.

Uvthenfuv:

12-20-2009 20:16:42 UTC

Siryessir,
and thank you. : )

After some investigating I am confident in stating that Uvthenfuv and Falkuon are indeed different people.
