My hard drive packed in last weekend so I had to use another computer to use sploofus, the computer i used was that of another sploofus member (who happens to be my uncle).
Just thought I would say because it may appear that 2 different members have used the same ip address and I am sure that I read somewhere that this could cause the accounts to be deleted.

I'm sure that there are many of us who play on a computer of another member. I sometimes use my daughter's computer - she's a sometime member. Husbands and wives share computers with different user names. I wouldn't worry about it.

I think that if the same computer is used, Sploofus will only monitor the use of that IP Address. Somehow it can tell if there is cheating going on or if it's just innocent sharing of a computer.

My daughter Joey, myself and my brother Spookymonk have all used the same computer at different times, no problems have occured.

Mom and I also use the same when we are visiting each other...and I have used her office computer, etc.

We haven't ever gotten in trouble!

My daughter (lanmwolf) and I often use the same computer (our home computer or sometimes even HER laptop). We've had no problems. Unless you can have a computer for each person in the household, sharing is necessary.

My sister is a Sploofer and we see each other more weekends than not. There have been many times where we looked at the clock and said 'Oh God, I haven't' done the Word Puzzle yet'.

We do them one at a time, all above the rules of Sploof law.

To date there have been no problems, or questions asked.

This is interesting. My wife has always wanted to participate but has not done so for fear of getting my account deleted. I asked Sploofus about this when I first joined but never got an answer. Now I'm REALLY confused.

My husband and I use the same computer all the time. Then my daughter also uses it when she feels like checking into the site...which isn't often. No problems with 3 of us using the same computer. We do have a laptop and sometimes both my husband and I will be logged into sploofus at the same time, frantically trying to get a WR in before the hour expires. *shrug* WR's are an addiction we can't help it.

I'm guessing in fact twenty people could possibly use the same computer. There may be some disclaimer about having to live in the UK though.

Not too sure on that part.

Many households have only one computer with several members using the same computer for many things. I know several in that situation and I have had several people use this computer for sploofus, as they came and went. I'm currently rebuilding mine, so I also am having to use it. Families also tend to have similar interests and share common knowledge at times. This can make it difficult to tell if someone is cheating, and I applaud Justin for his fairness in this matter. I'm also certain he has had to make difficult decisions of this type. He does, after all, hold the right to delete quizzes or members who do not play by the rules of Sploofus. The rules exists to make it fair for all of us.
