Malcolm, I was about to PM you but figured that probably a few people would be interested...

There are currently two login as Dom on HOP. there is DOm our tall thin leggy blonde and Dom , another guy. possibly it is still only one person playing a trick (in which case tis not funny Dom, you knucklehead )

but either way does this mean it is possible for two people to have the same login ?

that would be quite a problem, right ?

I think this also happened to my friend Itai aka Fire dragon and someone else who registered as fire dragon...

just curious

shine on

i think it has something to do with the fact that your log on name can be completely different from your displayed name.

You can't have the exact same login as someone else. There is another "Lightning" registered who registered two years ago and has one single post. Because of that member, I have the "..." after my name. -Mike

I can't seem to get my MisStix back - I was being silly the other day and added some stuff to my name - now I can't get it back.. says its been reserved by another member.. Who else would be a Niki Stix ? Surely I'm the only MisStix around here?.. boo hoooo...

Cass that was me with the Firedragon.. I changed it as I didn't want to take anyone's name - it's easy to get confused.. but I'm a friedragon every where else.. Hope your friend is well by the way..

You can't have the same login as anyone else.

can you have the same screen name though?
cos you can change your screen name as much as you like using the same account 9and therefore login).....

It won't let you have the exact same screen name as someone else.

For instance Itai's Fire Dragon and MisStix's Firedragon


Also login names are member specific - hence me not being allowed to have the login Blast Radius as someone earlier had chosen this.


The Dom confusion did get me. But some checking cleared things up - sort of... still slightly baffled by it all.


But I suspect that our leggy blonde Dom has alternativa as his login as this was his name initially.


Hope that this clears up some of your confusion. If not tell me and i'll try to explain it better. "I'll carry this....It's harder to spill a hat" - Chellybean

I know people are not evil here, just think we should keep that in mind...

Someone on here is/was evil, they were pretending to be me and were sending people horrible messages in my name from an MSN account They upset Valura because of it
So if anyone, at any point, has got a really horrible message a couple of months back apparently from me, it wasn't.
Fortunately they stopped shortly after starting, so the damage was contained.
But i guess there is no way of stopping people from doing that
i would hope the peeps on here would know that i couldn't/wouldn't do such a thing.

WOW, sorry to hear that yucky story, This is really stupid and cheap and mean ... I hate it when the web enables coward jerks , pardon my french , to express ther twisted manipulative ugly tendancies... YUCK...

I do think it is always safe to check twice when you get a flaming email if there is not some kind of misunderstanding / manipulation ...

Anyway ... just be carefull but then again, enjoy and ... SHINE ON as well

Your are correct. Names can not be the same.
However some names can look similar as we have seen.

If anyone has a problem with a PM or a post they should either tell a moderator or myself. I have access to all IP addresses of posters and their details. I can ban nasty people, limit accounts and even notify internet service proivders. Posts can be deleted and action taken by moderators. This has been done in the past with good results.

Moderators and Administrator are here to help and protect. See guidelines and help

Kindest regards

Malcolm May your balls always burn

What is the score is with changing our HoP names?? The other day I had a shower and when I got out I was just Morph
As you can see I've been inspired by MisStix* , is there anyway to go back to the origional name?
I've still got my origional Marlborored sig, which for the ego-fueled bonus of having my early member number I would like to use, but can't because of the name and the email address

Have a Hippy-Hoppy-Happy day
