Shared Account Rules

I feel like the rule against shared accounts should be more openly expressed. @Paddle2See has a post in the forums where it is explained why sharing an account between two people is not allowed, but the post was from over a year ago and the information cannot be found anywhere else that I know of. I understand it falls under the sharing contact information in the community guidelines, but a lot of Scratchers still don't know that they shouldn't do this. Collaboration in the community is encouraged, and while it should be through remixing and on the forums, Scratchers see how easy it is to make the account and not the harm it could cause. I don't think that the community guidelines should be changed to accommodate this, but I think it should be stated somewhere on the website where Scratchers can easily see it, especially with the removal of the forum icon on the top bar. This would clear up confusion and prevent bans, while still encouraging collaboration.

Here is an example of the confusion, as there really isn't much information about it.


Also note: Shared accounts between family/ other people you know personally are allowed.

Thanks for support and seeing this bit of information!

Exactly. That's why I think it should be more noticeable (if that's the right word)

I agree, but if you make a shared account you should know the person in real life and trust them.

Pretty sure that is allowed. I think it falls under the family category in @Paddle2See's post.

Who are you responding to? If you respond to someone you should use the quote button unless you are the first post.

@YubNubEwok also brought that up, it is stated in the post that family/friend accounts are okay. But if it isn't someone you know, and even if you're okay with sharing your email, it's still not allowed.
