Hey all,

My brother is considering opening up an account on this site, is this allowed? We would be using the same laptop, and I know that 'sock-puppet' accounts are not allowed. Is he allowed to open up an account, I know on other forums we have had to ask permission as people sometimes think we are just the same user, which isn't allowed.

Yes, of course your brother is allowed to create his own account . The rules are that each member is allowed one account, not that each IP is allowed one account. I understand, however, that in most cases these are one and the same, so thanks for pointing it out to us, and avoiding misunderstandings in the future! (I hope you've warned him that this doesn't exempt him from the welcome fish )

Don't forget to ask him what kind of fish he likes.
