Not sure what you're asking here Your account for example is "Mae", and anytime you login with your user and pass you are "Mae", though you may login from your home, internet cafe, work, airport - doesn't matter.

Now imagine a situation where you have three accounts, for example - "Mae", "Ema", and "Ame" all with different avatars, signatures, etc. looking like three posters to anyone. If they are all coming from the same address - for example from your home computer, that would be very suspicious, since it would mean you have two sisters who enjoy posting on MTF, or (more likely) that it's one user pretending to be 3 different people

One account coming from many different IP addresses is okay... just means the person logs in from different places/travels.

Of course it is. I may want to check for new posts from my laptop, or from my home computer, or from work, or from my new smartphone, or even from an internet cafe. All of them will have different IPs, yet my account is the same. The problem is that there a new IP protocol now, and my home computer ISP has moved towards it, and there are rumors of them sticking only to the new version and cutting IPv4 out in time. So, if they do that, will I be able to open this forum anymore?

Was not thinking of that actually, because how can it be a double account with one single account posting from multiple IPs?

Just trying to see how intelligent the boards are, and what would happen if I decided to completely scratch IPv4 and only use IPv6. Would I still be able to access the board?

IPv6

I have a really technical question here. I know this board is vBulletin. Just wanna ask, if a user connects using IPv6, what IP does the board read? Does it support the v6 IP, or does it see only the v4? I ask because I have IPv6 at home, whilst I have IPv4 at work and I am really curious as a programmer.

Thanks.
