In order to avoid misunderstandings and / or false / misleading commnets you are not allowed to post personal messages recieved from admin / staff regarding issues with the game and / or bug related.

You are allowed to talk about anything among yourselfs, but please keep the Space Odyssey team members out of it, we are just trying to make the game better.

All moderators should delete topics containing ingame / forum PM information from Space Odyssey Team members.
This will be added to the Space Odyssey TOS shortly.

There is no need for comments. Topic is locked.

Thank you

Please review the limitation and further explanation of multiple account usage.

As an example, the destruction of a station by a higher power account in order to facilitate the attack of a lower alt on the protected motherships in the same system is a violation of the Terms of Service, as detailed below "Your accounts may _not_ help each other in any way."

Please understand that there is a distinct difference between using multiple accounts and the cooperation of two or more distinct commanders. The cooperation of the commanders is allowed, while the usage of two or more accounts by the same person in the same manner is against the TOS. To determine the nature of an account in question, Space Odyssey will keep a complete record of ingame actions and logins that will be used in the event of a violation of the Terms of Service. Due to this fact, please avoid logging in your account from a friend's computer that also has an account with Space Odyssey and you are in the same alliance or frequently cooperating ingame with him / her.

Limitations    
        (I) The maximum amounts of accounts per person
   You may have multiple accounts only on those circumstances:
   You do _not_ use your accounts to help one single account.
   You may _not_ finance a lower power account with a higher power one in order to do damage to lower people using the higher account resources    
   You do _not_ use your multiple accounts to attack one single target. Your accounts may _not_ help each other in any way. You have to play each account as a single entity to ensure the fair play as opposed to your fellow commanders. The multiple accounts should not be used in any way that would have any connection with another account of the same person. This includes taking advantage of the superior power of a higher account to help or facilitate an action of a lower account or otherwise.
