About multiple nations on one IP (not in the UN)

Are they allowed?

The FAQ never directly addressed this...just that you can only have one nation in the UN.

My brother wishes to create a nation, but as we are on the same IP address, I know he can't join the UN...but will he be able to create a nation?

If you want your bro share the same PC, you can have many nations but only one for UN.

2 computers, one desktop, one laptop, both linked to the same router for internet.

Is one IP address one computer or all the computers at one address?
If you connect through a "broacband/dsl router" or something like that, all your computers use the same address as far as NS is concerned (although technically they all have different internal addresses, this isn't the one the NS server sees).

I'd be surprised if NS regulated UN membership by IP, as so many people nowadays connect via ISPs that provide them with dynamic IPs--it just would not be effective. Not to mention folks that connect to NS from both work and home systems, from Internet cafes, etc.

I imagine something like email address is instead the governing factor for limiting UN membership.

If I remember correctly, they also use login times and stuff...


But even if dynamic IP addresses are used, usually the first parts are about the same...

I dunno though :roll:
