Multiple simultaneous logins

Postby Esternial » Thu Jan 10, 2019 5:30 pm

Heyo,

I haven't a clue on your policies, so I figured it might be safer to ask if it's permitted to log in to multiple puppet accounts simultaneously by just passing individual parameters into the URLs and opening each in a separate incognito tab.

It is not possible – even if you login to one nation (call A) on one tab, and log into another (B), then go back to A’s page and do some action there, that page will also turn into B.

You can. Look at "Users browsing this forum" and you'll see 3 of my puppets.

3 seperate tabs, 3 isolated sessions.

That's why Esternial said "separate incognito tab". It's a feature of some browsers where different pages are kept in completely separate sandboxes that can't affect each other (no sharing of cookies, in particular), meaning that the server won't recognize that it's the same person in both tabs. You can get a similar effect by running multiple browsers.

I see no reason why it would be illegal (this game doesn't really offer any kind of benefit to lots of nations being logged in at once, except in R/D, which is already covered by WA anti-multiing rules), but I'm not the one who makes the call.

Well I could understand that 20+ simultaneous logins from a single IP might be...problematic.

Just want to check that before I actually do it :p

I can also confirm that it is possible to be logged in as two nations at once if using two separate devices or two separate incognito tabs. I myself sometimes have this nation up in regular browsing and then am also logged into 60s Music in incognito mode.

However, if you log in somewhere else to a nation you are already logged in as, the existing session gets logged out and the new session takes over.

I've done it before with 20 odd nations simultaneously on Z-Day using Sessionbox. I'm not sure how it could reasonably be against the rules- if it was, where's the line between that and using many different browsers, or many different devices, and so on?

CRUOR judges worthiness by loyalty to Blood (herself), loyalty to Brotherhood (fellow disciples), and loyalty to the core values of CRUOR.
The core values of CRUOR are Courage, Resolve, Unity, Order, and Ruthlessness.
CRUOR remembers everyone who has ever wronged her, and does not accept divided allegiances.
Devoted followers of CRUOR are rewarded with IMMORTALITY, a life beyond death.
