Today my mom saw me using mylot and she got interested in all these topics. She too wants to have an account as she is alone for most art of the day at home. She thinks of having some discussions with live persons

I have never done this coz I think this may be considered as cheating. I cannot change my IP, so I think this maybe considered as cheat. Happy posting:)

Well, since she's a different person I would think it would be alright. If you have an issue, just be sure to send a private message to the MyLot admin explaining the situation that your mom is creating a new account but will be using your computer. I think she will need her own Paypal account which is free and available to almost everyone. Best of luck to both of you. I'm sure she will have lots of fun!

I think that as long asd she is not your referral nor you her's then there should be no problem. If she wants to be a member she can become a member but she can not be a referrial of your's as that would be constituted as cheating since you would receive money not only from your activity but also her's and double dipping would be cheating. Now if she had another IP address then she could be your referrial since if it is originating from the same ip address then there is no way to be resonably assured that it is not you double dipping. If you want her to be your referrial, as that is what she is.... referred to the site by you, then you may want to try to contact myLot staff and see about a special exception. What ever your choice, I hope that I have helped atleast a little. Have a great day and Happy MyLotting!!!

From what I understand it is not but I think that the best solution is to write to myLot administration and explain the situation. Yhey're major concern is that the same people will have more than one account although I am not really sure that it is such a big problme - after all a person with 2 accounts does would not necessarily make more money since that person would have to post in both accounts making a certain amount of money but if the person posted those same posts in one account only it would still be basically the same. In any case, and do not quote me on this because I can't recall precisely, but I think I knew of a couple where both were members in myLot. I think that they wrote to the administration and explained the situation and got permission - but as I said I can't recall that well so I might be wrong. If I am right, than I am sure that you would be able to get permission for your mother to post as well.

The thing is, if you read the discussion guidelines of myLot they do tell you that you can't have multiple accounts per person, however they also mention that you can only have one paypal or moneybookers account per myLot account. So I suppose it's possible for you and your mom to have separate accounts, as long as you aren't sharing a moneybookers or paypal account, but you should definitely contact myLot and ask them, just to be sure. It can't hurt to ask first.

Well; the problem would be with the same person having multiple accounts;not with different persons ;whether from same or different Homes having Mylot Accounts . Still; contact Mylot with your query first .
