Gentle reminder from the admin team ... please don't register a second account for any reason.   From the forum agreement.

You also agree to NEVER use another person's account for any reason, and not to register for a second account if you already have one, even if you are unable to access it for any reason.

Our team appreciates there can be father-and-son with the same name, each wanting their own account; that's AOK - but please let us know as you're registering ...

And what about mother/and daughter with the same name?

Or even in this new self IDing transgender world, a mother/son or father/daughter with the same name?

Must be inclusive now, remember.

I'm curious to know what prompted the reminder. Did someone called slightlysmallernosemac or Three Track, Now! try to open an account?

Hello ...long time no post!    Yes, of course, any two people with the same name in the same family group - on indeed there could even be two people called - well "Graham Ellis" or "Paul Johnson" - I quote those two TransWilts names as both of us do / did have others of the same name in rail campaigning - Mine was a stalwart of the Isle of Mull railway; alas, he passed away several years back and I had to let numerous people know I was AOK.  The other PJ looks out for the service from Gaisnborough to Barnetby - like the TransWilts did, it went down to a token service and needs to come back.

I'm curious to know what prompted the reminder. Did someone called slightlysmallernosemac or Three Track, Now! try to open an account?

A number of co-incidences suggest that we have a couple of cases - one recent - of second accounts/applications.  Word "he" was used as it indicated very much as male not female.
