I submit for both my Sister and I.
I have to submit under my name for me and with no name for her just so I don't overwrite the same file.

Please for people with different accounts let us submit all at the same time without having to wait an hour.

If you need some kind of system to prevent people from submitting the same thing over and over then you might try a checksum instead of preventing people from submitting for one hour.

If you create a checksum from files the checksum changes as soon as you submit another lua file. And the 1 hour limit was to keep load on the slow (at the time) processing process. Something you can do is create an account here for your sister aswell. Besides it's not waiting an hour if you submit at 10:55 you should be able to submit 11:05 again without overwriting. (Not sure but came across that one Razz.)

No idea how often this might come up; or what viable answer (if any) could be possible. But family members might? be a nasty place where more then one individual can show up on 1 IP. In this case, it's IP sharing, and specifically the use of NAT (or technically PAT or port address translation), to allow for the sharing of an IP by multiple individuals.

Given many people don't care to purchase a seperate IP for each additonal computer, people such as one friend of mine, do use a router at home, and have t set to do address translation for each computer in the household (his fathers as well as his own). To the outside they appear as one machine, in reality they are not. He doesn't effect this, as he doesn't play WoW. It is a possibility however for some individuals. Haven't thought through exactly how this would go, or could be remedied. Two brothers within the same family, might have seperate computers under such an arrangement. And truth be told, 2 brothers might not be aware of how networking works; they might simply know when they can get out...

All said though, I've occassionally had a second copy of WoW load, and when I alt tab not seeing this, log myself out, even wanting same char. I of course on the extremely rare occassion I've noticed this, closed one out to save computer performance. If something similar would happen to the above 2 brothers, they could end up having to (perhaps knowing, perhaps not knowing the particulars) convince their parents to purchase an additional IP from the ISP, rather then IP share...
