Registering multiple accounts with the same e-mail address

Post by ThinkSome »

Please make this possible. I already have all my e-mails taken by bot registrations, and now I'm unable to re-register my chat account after it was dropped/deleted/? around january/february.

Uberserver is never going to allow two accounts to share the same email address. However, bot accounts can be created on request by lobby mods, without need for an email address. Lobby mods can also remove accounts. Afaics you will now need to ask for one or both of these things.

Once an account no longer exists, the email it was once registered to is available to new users. If you think this is not happening you should report a bug with logs etc.

Why not?

The account in question predates the e-mail requirement

Just use an alias.

youremail+alias@whatever.com

Most halfway decent providers support this functionality. Even the most basic of hosted email accounts on my webhost have support for this.

I already used up my alias quota on circumventing this restriction when creating more bots.

I'm assuming you have your own domain with hosted email. If that is the case, set a catchall that forwards everything to your email. Then you can use whateveryoulike@domain.com without having to have a real box there.

It's not a very good solution, it would work though. Alternatively, make a gmail account and forward all emails to it to your real address, then use gmail's aliasing system which doesn't have any limits.

Obviously these are just workarounds, but I'm assuming that there is basically zero chance of the server allowing multiple accounts on one email, so just throwing out suggestions that might get you around the issue.
