My son wants an account
Hello all.  My son wants to make an account.  Is there any way for him to do that?  I know each IP is only allowed to have one account.

My son wants an account
From Help:

By this it is meant that you, a single entity, may not create more than one account for any reason. People sharing computers are more than welcome to create an account for each person, and this FAQ is not meant to dissuade people sharing a computer or an internet connection from doing such.

...

Keep in mind that users, especially those from the same computer, should keep their accounts separate at all times; they should keep a unique password no one else knows, and they should never, under any circumstances, log into or use one another's accounts for any reason.  It should go without saying (but of course it doesn't) that anyone registering an account at RPoL needs to register the account to their own email address which they check regularly.

That's not correct.

But, as noted by NowhereMan, the accounts need to be kept completely separate.

Re: My son wants an account
Thanks, guys.  I know I created an account for my father years ago before he passed.  That account was deleted because it shared a common IP with mine.  Glad to know that isn't the case anymore.

It never was the case.  The other account was likely banned because you created it.  Users are only ever allowed to create a single account that they use themselves.  Nobody is allowed to create an account for somebody else.
