itsbobtista and bobcox88 were not multis (in Public Record)

itsbobtista August 16 2008 1:12 PM EDT

(this is bobcox88 typing)

ItsBobtista created the account bobcox88 for me. He used his alternate email, but yes, we do both share the same name. As I learned in the chat, there is a term used called "multi", and we were not practicing this.

I understand the confusion, and I would like to play this game. We were both trying to kill time here at work, and were both brand new at playing this.

When I get home, I would like to create a new account (since bobcox88 got banned), using MY email, MY user ID, etc on my IP address, to prove that I am a different person and using my own account. However, I will still play here at work on the IP address that was looked at for banning.

So, this is just a heads up. The new account will be a different identity. please do not ban it. No one is multi'ing.

<itsbobtista> Alright, he signed me onto this account
<novice> "Lye is being considered for dissolving the tissue of deceased human bodies as an environmentally-friendly alternative to cremation" - Wikipedia
<[CB1]Gun> oh my
* novice falls over laughing... the bobs of august
<Salvatore> ya, its was also used by gangsters to disolve the bodies of those they murdered
<[CB1]Gun> that's why he used it sal
<Lucario> type /mail bartjan (whatever you're saying to him here)
<[CB1]Gun> and got +2 for it
* Salvatore farts on Gun
<itsbobtista> hm
<[CB1]Gun> eww acid/base gas
<Lucario> Hey bob...
<itsbobtista> -shrugs- Forget it... I don't want to go through a big hassle/ordeal just to play this game... It is silly that the other account was banned in the first place, although I understand the needed to keep "multi-ers" away.
<itsbobtista> Yeah, Luc?
<Salvatore> anyone know the show Extreme home Makeover?
<Lucario> It's a shame.. This is a fun game, imho
* novice raises an eyebrow at Sal
<novice> why?
<itsbobtista> It is fun, until you get banned.
<itsbobtista> lol
<Salvatore> they're redoing a house like 45 mins from my home
<Lucario> lol, heh...
<Lucario> I understand.. after the trouble, you prolly won't enjoy it =\
<Salvatore> im gonna drive over there and be like, "hey, yu guys wanna make a few extra bucks"?
<[CB1]Gun> si
<itsbobtista> I will just wait until I get home, create my own account (Don't wanna use Bob's) and use my own email and stuff... so they won't pair it with this IP address
<Lucario> kk
<[CB1]Gun> good :)
<itsbobtista> However, do you guys have any idea if I create an account at my home on that IP address, and I come to work and play it (the one I got banned on), will they just ban the account again?
<Lucario> NIG
<[CB1]Gun> might, that's why you send a chatmail or post in forums as a heads up
<Lucario> Make a thread in the pulic records
<itsbobtista> okie
<Lucario> explaining what is happening, and that you two are not multis
<[CB1]Gun> or won't be for long
* Salvatore pokes novice
<Lucario> and don't exchange any items/cash between...

Sharing an IP is not a problem. Sharing an account is. The way you did it, I have no way of telling you apart...

Both of your names are BoB? Did your company only hire Bobs?

"Did your company only hire Bobs?"

OMG Lord Bob and itsbobtista are multis, lol ;P.

My brother and I have been playing on the same IP since 2004, I think (way back in CB1), and we never had a problem. I'm confused as to why they even thought you were multi's anyways, since sharing the same IP nowadays is hardly worth raising eyebrows over. Perhaps I'm missing something here, but generally I thought it was transfers that were used to detect multis as opposed to strictly IP addresses and- even more foolishly- account names.

However, generally the admins here are forgiving, and since you didn't really have anything worth keeping, restarting shouldn't be a big deal for either of you.

"OMG Lord Bob and itsbobtista are multis,"

Shhh! One of the admins might believe you.
