Default My Son Wants His Own Account...

Is it possible to have 2 accounts from the same home comp? If so, he will be "Bufo Ethanus"...

All my thanks!

I believe you can. You just have to log in and out which can be annoying.. From what ive read chris teem should know the answer to this.

Funny guy Dizzle!
Frogboy and I have 2 separate accounts and we both log in on either computer all the time. Actually, I think I am logged in on both computers right now! There is supposed to be an age limit on DB. Technically
Frogboy is too young but we asked Kyle for permission and he allowed it.

I tried to set him up with an email acct. to get started, this what I got...

"Google could not create your account


In order to have a Google Account, you must meet certain age requirements. To learn more about online child safety, visit the Federal Trade Commission's website."

I feel bad. He was ridiculously excited to participate... Maybe I will create an email with an exagerated age???

Just make his age on the email account older. I think the age limit thing is pointless anyway.

I was thinking about this more. Frog Boy is an acception to the rule. Not only is he obviously well educated, he is an enterprising young man as well. I think that(and the fact he is 4 years older than my son) makes it appropriate to allow him to have forum access. I just don't think people will want to read the rambling attempted typings of my 7 year old... Thanks for all the advice though.

The simplest thing to do is get permission. If you don't get permission, then there is a TOS violation which could cause a suspension or banning. It is just better to avoid the hassle.

JBear, set up a second email account for yourself, if his acct will need it's own. As his dad, IMO all email accounts should be under your name, anyway.
