    Welcome to all newbies and welcome back to all oldies :)

    Australis put it very mildly. If I am nost mistaken there is even a clause in the board rules that declares account sharing a bannable offense. This might originally have been targeted against trolls but has been kept for good reasons:


    If you share an account, you can make twice as many posts and shall get promoted to higher ranks faster than other users which might cause envy and lead to snide remarks at best or a flame war at worst (not by us normal members, of course, but there is always the inevitable bully / board idiot and those who follow him). Being an old member here, Troi, you might remember the general board mood a decade ago when the situation escalated that badly that bans were handed out left and right by the score. You'll surely agree that we really don't need these times back again.

    Also, there might be problems when someone tries to specifically PM only one of you or add one of you to their friends list.

    Plus: if you intend to vote in a poll, you'd have only one vote for the both of you (and you might disagree on the which option to vote for)


    For these administrational reasons it might be better if you'd register a second account. How about naming it "Troi& Riker" or "iorT&rekiR" ? This way you'd signal that you two belong together and it'd still be two separate accounts.


    (don't worry if you're not that much into Trek - there is always Miscellaneous and the lounges :) I stick to both myself, most of the time, as imho they are the nicest places on the board. It'll be fun to get to know each other and have a girl's talk behind your hubby's back ;))

    Hey everyone, I was told to post here.

    I just registered last night and I think I will do well here if I have just a tiny eentzy-weentzy bit of help here and there.

    I'm Zreen, and I already filled out my bio- check it out if you want.

    I am not a professional writer or composer as I have not gone to college for those things just yet (very soon though) but I can still practice. I had so many Star Trek stories when I was younger, maybe I'll put what I remember up somewhere in the Fan section of this site. Also music- I have several tracks I made myself of orchestral pieces, and I can do a Star Trek piece if people want to hear one after I post my music at some point.

    Other than that, I hope you enjoy me being here, I sure will.

    ...:hugegrin:

    I just might do that. I'll be morphing into my Half Romulan/Vulcan persona while I'm here, as many other seem to do that. :vulcan::rommie:

    I have a question on the no-two-people under one user name rule. Does that apply to conjoined twins who can't actually type at the same time, or are there more detailed rules covering how conjoined they have to be to register as a single user (joined at the head, etc)?

    Also, do members of a hive-mind collective register as one user or billions of them?

    welcome to all newbies :)
    @gturner: hive members register one account per person and upon receival of the confirmation mail consider themselves assimilated into our collective.
    As for the other question: why do I have a suspicion that you are a dual of Zaphod Beeblebrox..

    Hello everyone. I'm scotcat, I just registered here and thought I'd introduce myself to you all.

    I've been a fan of Star Trek for for 25 years - since getting indoctrinated by my brother at a young age - and figured it was long past time I joined up here.
