in may my daughter and her friend (also our neighbor) both signed up for a website rpg.well come june my daughter was banned for cheating( they mean hacking or multi- accounting as cheating) which she did neither but thats besides the point.. well after a few days i found out that my community runs on the same external ip address (when checked with an online checker) but when i check from ipconfig the ip's are all different..so my daughter tried rejoining (after getting a letter from them saying she could) and then 3 hours letter it came back denied (made no sense to me and we deleted all cookies before trying).. know normally when this group bans for multi accoutning they disable all the accounts..we just noticed now that her friends account is still active and she can log in from our computer..so know i dont think it was the ip they banned.. i was just wondering how else they ban, wether they can ban the ip you get when you do ipconfig or the one you get from and online checker, or what else they can ban you with (besides log in info and email)..we live in a 271 townhome community that use a LAN set up instead of broadband and we connect our modem through a linksy voip router from vonage for our phone(if any of that makes a difference).. i need easy terms i can understand (have asked around before but everyone gives me terms and statements i cant understand..iam not looking for a way to bypass the ban and cheat i was just wondering how the whole banning thing works
i had read that particular topic and it still left me with unanswerred questions..i have talked to others in my community who have had the same issues with being banned from other forums because someone else in our community was on the same forum. so it makes me curious on how it all works...as for the website my daughter was banned from we emailed so many times but never got any replies back except for one telling her she could join just for them to cancell it that night..
