can 1 ip address used by several microworkers account ? surely different email address. Suppose we are making it from the public space. Do you think that it is allowed to use the same ip address for several account. If not i must buy a new ip address

Yes. Same computer. Same IP address. I have just joined Microworkers a month ago and now I am waiting for my confirmation pin to be snail mailed. I know I would receive it. Besides, they admin of microworkers have not sent me any emails about this so I guess it's alright.

Microworkers dont allow members from the same IP address and you risk losing your account if so. Alot of sites are like that though. You could try contacting them and letting them know ahead of time that its is a public computer and it would then be up to them which I know a few sites will allow it.

It is forbidden by the FAQ to have several accounts, but not to have several members using the same IP. Some tasks will not be available twice for the same IP, so it is not the best way to do tasks at Microworkers.

Though I've never jumped in and actually started working with them, no one else in my home is allowed to get an account with them because of the fact that I do have an account and their terms of service say that you are limited to one account per household. Now, for the longest time I thought that every computer had its own IP address, but I've recently learned that is not correct so you will probably have to change your IP address to use microworkers if someone at your home is already using it.

It is impossible to change ip address for 1 connection. We only can have ip address but it is dynamic so every time we use we get different one. I don't know in america but we can change the ip easily here in indonesia because mobile phone number is so cheap. Mobile phone can connect to the internet

I think that is not allowed. Even if thats not your account, which is made from the ip address which you are trying from now, you are not allowed. If you are done, still your account will be barred.

Having 2 accounts is breaking the rules too regardless if they paid or not.

I have done some Microworkers tasks with my phone, using shared proxies : it is not forbidden by the FAQ to have several members using the same IP, but not very good, as several tasks, like sign-up, votes, can't be done twice by the same IP. What is forbidden is to have several accounts, and if one member in a public space does it and is caught, the IP and the member will be banned by Microworkers.

You can log on from different IP Address, but you can make only one account per IP Address. Many accounts from single Ip address will ban forever by Micro-workers. So, 1 Ip = 1 Account. For log in Many Ip Address

I think it is dangerous to have more than one account there even if there are 2 persons with the same IP using them.You can waste a lot of time and then they can cancel your account anytime they want.
