I have extensive experience with players with multiple accounts in the same household .
In the beginning . There were many many Husband , Wife , Father , Son , Uncle , Daughter ,Cousin , Nephew , etc . Multiple household accounts all over WGT .
When and if there was ever a question about that validity . And only a question on that exact issue . The parties in question would then need to verify ID .
Since this scenario is very wide spread throughout WGT . This has come up a lot in the early years .
So this is a very real thing throughout WGT .
It started to become a problem . When and if 1 particular player had an issue beyond ID . That would red flag the IP .
Once that has happened . No other accounts are accepted with that or even similar IP's .
Even if they are legitimate and have the ID to prove it .
Over time I saw upwards of a dozen accounts disabled . For some unknown reason to the user . No signs of cheating . Or other accounts for most of them .
A couple of them . At the same time as trying to prove identification . Created new accounts . To continue to play the game they loved so much . Not here to be a threat . But possibly guilty of association with a family member previously red flagged .
Sometime around 2015 . WGT just went on a disabling spree . I know of several users that could not have possibly had an issue . But were disabled .
There was a very popular CC owner . Whose account was disabled out of the blue . His one and only WGT account . And even he could not contact them after the disabling .There was a Geometry Teacher from Portugal . An art student from South Africa . An architect student from Australia . A housewife . And several others .
I am not sure what WGT's explanation on that is . No one was ever responded to .
But prior to all of that . In 2014 . One of the busybodies in these forums . Decided that some of the members of my CC was a multi accounter .
There was DBlankity , JDBlankity , JMBlankity . I already knew it was D , his brother and the brother in law . Or something like that . And the older brother has MS .
But they got called out by one of our buddies here .( Which BTW I was not happy about ) .
And the Blankity's had to prove themselves . Which they did . With no issues . And the Blankity's are still here .
But after that . It seemed that no one had a prayer to ID themselves .
I assume that this eventually snowballed into a nightmare of somehow red flagged IP's . That may or may not have rightfully been red flagged . And became too many to handle . And were therefore just disabled and ignored .
SOME OF OUR FRIENDS DELETED BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
