The first time I tried to submit my account, I accidently double clicked the link. It gave me an error message, claiming that the handle was already registered, so I figured I'd just submitted it twice on accident. I submitted it again but with a different name, but it said the email address was already in use.
So I waited for the email. Naturally my application was denied because I'd accidently registered it twice, and they told me to resubmit it once, so they knew which one I actually wanted to use.
I did, and waited for the email again.
When it came, my application was denied again. This time they said that my application was suspicous because I'd already submitted it several times, and they suspected I was trying to make multiple accounts. I'm going to resubmit, but is there any way I can explain the problems I've been having so I'm not permabanned as a multi account user or somesuch?
Right, but I've applied a total of 4 times no, each time only after getting the rejection email. Each time I get the same message:
Your joining application was rejected due to a number of factors making your application suspicious. Various elements pointed towards this account being wittingly or unwittingly used to violate our muti-account rules. It is possible that you share the IP address of an existing player, this is usually caused by already having an account or sharing a connection with an existing player, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact us for further information regarding the rejection of your application or refer to the Character Creation rules page located at http://rules.swcombine.com/?Character_Creation for more information.
I could understand this... If I'd been accepted for a first account, which I haven't. So having multiple accounts is a bit of a stretch.
And it's also not a doomsday deal like your making it out to be. A quick chat with an admin would clear everything up. It's impossible for anyone to be 100% sure on a public connection and the admin understand that and i have no doubt things could be taken care off. The chances are quite rare of not knowing another SWC member anyway.
