I've had an account with the combine for years, and my fiance wants to join. I told her that we'd have to set up a multi-account because we can each only have one character. I walked her through making a new account, including filling in the field where she had to put my character name. Then I sent in a support ticket to say we'd be sharing the connection. She just got an e-mail saying she was rejected because her entry looked suspicious. Here's the e-mail:
Dear Lian Mei,

I asked about it in the IRC help room and they said to resubmit the application. We just did that. I'm hoping someone will actually read my ticket now. Or maybe she has to actually send it herself. Either way I'd like some help here.
You're probably reffering to my brother (Walni Rom-ca). He visits sometimes but we don't regularly share the connection. If we need to both be on the multi anyway I'll understand. Years ago we were. I'm guessing the database has been reset or something since then.
Alright, after some DMing with Hal my memory has been jogged. The other name is Ulec Nossar, belonging to my cousin. I got him added on the multi so we could use eachother's computers without retaliation. But that was quite some time ago and it's not showing up on my OOC profile. I suppose Lian is going to have to wait for her application to be rejected a second time so that she can put both names into the multi account field. I only hope I don't get banned or anything over this. >.<
I have one more question now. Why is the combine so adamant about keepingeveryone down to one character? I would never want a second one myself since I have enough trouble keeping up with all the responsibilities of the one I've got, but I can't say I understand the problem now that spying isn't so much against the rules.
*sigh* The rant is out of my system. Just please help me, to anyone who can.
Also, if you have a multi account it won't necessarily show up on your account page. When I was ASim I had numerous people ask about their multi status because their page said they were no longer one, but the admin multi page still had them listed. Not sure if it hits everyone, or if its been fixed since, so the be absolutely sure you are multis with someone you should contact an ASim and get them to check.
