Tiberius already mentioned this in an affected thread, but since this has came up a few times in the past as well I figured I'd make an announcement specifically on the topic:

As a rule of thumb, having multiple forum accounts is not allowed, and creating multiple forum accounts for argumentative purposes or to skew polls is most definitely not allowed. For the record, we can tell when the same person has signed up with multiple forum accounts!

Everyone's free to discuss game-related topics, but please do so on equal grounds and with mutual respect.

Hey Ivar! May I assume that this wouldn’t affect a reasonable condition of two members of the same household each having their own account? My wife doesn’t post here, but if she ever did I would imagine it would have the appearance of originating from the same location.

Then again, my wife and I never, ever argue so that shouldn’t be an issue here either!:ROFLMAO:

I tend to sometimes wait with making a post a sticky until a day or so after its creation since many tend to ignore the entire "stickied" section. Will definitely sticky it at some point soon though :)
There’s a sticky section? ;) 😝

Once upon a time I played similar games. Now I tried it. I really liked . What a beginner's advice
Do theMain Quests and kill Bounties. You can get a Crafting Quest and a Gathering Quest in Summer's Hollow that give great rewards. Also, learn Gnogmentation from an NPC in Summer's Hollow.

I had considered this at one point in time and thought to myself how much simpler it would be to have people use their actual emails on game to address the forums. Idk, but it seemed like an easier way to verify ones validity and all, of course there will be those that need to use alternate accounts for whatever reason, still, just feels like a better way of doing it to me. Malicious intent would most certainly take care of itself afterwards.

This is how the old forums used to work, but there are a few issues with this:
  • Some people don't use email to access the game (e.g. quick play accounts on mobile), and wouldn't be able to log into the forums.
  • Some people haven't tried the game yet and might want to spend some time in the forums before committing to a large download.
  • Currently the game doesn't support an easy way to change your email, so if you wanted to change forum login credentials that wouldn't be as easy.
  • From a security standpoint, using the same credentials (in particular passwords) for multiple places is poor practice. This way one can use different credentials which is safer in the event of a breach (not just V&H but say, your email provider).
  • Using game credentials to access the forums would require custom code, which 1) would take time to implement and 2) might be prone to issues. The system used on the old forums caused issues now and then for this reason.

There's definitely some convenient aspects of being able to log in with your game account, but I think in this case the disadvantages are greater.

To make things simple use a password manager, then you just need to remember one password,
I use LastPass (they have a free option), been with them for years.

As Caraldor pointed out, this is actually pretty easy to do with a password manager. I use LastPass as well and I only know the single master password - all the others are randomly generated, things like 3W#97v6psg6sxb, and unique for all sites and services I use. Really convenient and way more secure than reusing a single or handful of passwords :)

That's the point, you use the password manager to automatically fill it in for you - so you never have to know these passwords at all :)
