I have been busy and do not have so much time for mylot but my wife is a stay at home mum for now. Is it OK for her to start using my account so it doesnot become dormant?.

No, we do not allow more than one person to share an account. I would have her create her own account as your referral, that way you can still reap the benefits and she will have her own individual identity. Just make sure to log in occasionally (every 90 days) to your own account to keep your earnings.

Thank you GoaskAlice for that clarification. I guess she will open her own separate account then. @PPE and multiple identities too? Right?

PPE: Well, you could just cancel an account and create a new one every time a different personalty takes over.....oh wait :D saeedonline: No problem. Always glad to help.

Ummm ... I think it's a slightly more delicate and sensitive situation. I can quite understand and totally agree (as you see from my response) that two people should not use the same account for POSTING. However, if a person happens to be away from any Internet connection for longer than 90 days, it is surely a matter between two people as to whether the password is shared or not. Perhaps we just shouldn't ask about it here on the public forum (in case some idiot takes it as a license to abuse MyLot). I think, saeedonline, that your wife should certainly open her own account - as your referral - if she wants to join in this excellent discussion forum. It is quite acceptable to use the same IP address (and even the same computer) provided that all the neccessary details are filled in by BOTH parties here: http://www.mylot.com/nr/editaffiliations.aspx MyLot are a very reasonable and friendly company but, like anyone, they need to guard against real abuse. I am certain that what you are asking is in no way intended to defraud MyLot out of anything but you have to understand that any answer here (especially from an Admin) could be construed by someone as a 'license to defraud'. Please read between the lines and make sure that you are really acting within acceptable moral standards. I can only say that anyone who doesn't do so will very quickly be detected. There are many more people than GAA who care about MyLot here!

You and your wife aren't able to use the same account. If she wants to post a comment, she would be able to set up her own account and be a member of mylot. This would be the best approach.

Although it is not specifically stated in the Guidelines, the Terms say: "You agree not to use the account, username, or password of another member at any time or to disclose your password to any third party. ... You are solely responsible for any and all use of your account." It does tend to create confusion if two people post in the same account. Your wife should create her own account (and why not have her as your referral?) if she intends to use MyLot to join in discussions. Provided that all she was doing with your account was to log in to keep it active, that is a personal matter between you and her.

I was feeling since we will be using the same Ip , the admin may view it as having multiple accounts.

Using the same IP for two accounts is not forbidden here but you MUST declare when two people are using the same IP addresses (or the same PayPal IDs) for two different accounts. Both members must fill in the form here: http://www.mylot.com/nr/editaffiliations.aspx

Oh thanks for that too. I did not know we have to fill another form.

Make her sign up under you and make her own account. She can post and you can come back when you can.. You can share the same paypal as well.
