    alright I was thinking. I was on mentalfx.com... and you need a membership. Alot of sites need memberships, to see pictures or whatever... So I got this idea, it might not work, but we can try:

    trade memberships, or share them, I have a membership on yahoo (but a tonne of people do) but if someone wanted to like, play a game on there and not want to join and crap they could PM me and ask for the username and password, and I'd give it to them, if I sort of knew them.. Like, lol is this too incredibly dumb? I dont mean give out your email password and crap or anything, but like, to get access to something on a site where you dont have to pay for a membership.....
    any input is good... good or bad idea?

    Hi there,
    I think I would "really" have to know them....like face to face know them before I would do that. Sorry.....don't mean to sound like a dad, (even though I am one). Just trying to spare you some potental pain.

    :)

    I have a few friends where we do something like this. We each have a shared username/password that we use on several forums. Mostly the freaky religious ones (the kind where people think Harry Potter is the devil). We all just rotate through whatever names we want. It makes for some interesting situations because we often disagree with each other... it looks like we have multiple personalities or something. It is fun because we all have different hours so we can make it look like this person hasn't sleep for a week or two if we want. We have done that before just to make one person think the person behind the identity was a speed freak who never slept. Ah, good times.

    lol! lol yeah I think if we were on the old forums I would feel more comfortable..... we all made a big transition

    anyways I think in the future we'd be able to do this successfully.

    I never know what kind of message I might get... LOL So, I would be quite uncomfortable, letting someone else use my identity... LOL

    it would be a lil sketchy, especially on a forum like this, or something where you can send email, they can cause all sorts of trouble that way. and on yahoo, someone might mess up my spades record, so that wouldnt be cool. i also tend to use a couple of the same passwords for everything.

    i think it's a very nice gesture.
     
  12. Like DarkLunacy said, I've always wanted to see those MentalFX movies, they look really cool.

    yeah em too. I dont think it would work on a site with alot of forums...

    but if anyone wanted like an ID for habbohotel, I would give them mine but I dont remember it :(

    Just don't share with TOO many people. Many pay-sites track your inbound ip addresses, if you generate a bunch of traffic from multiple ips (especially simulatenously) you can have your account deleted for violating the terms of service.

    There's another issue too. For example, I'm Admin on my forums. There's no WAY I could share my account. Someone could accidently delete my whole website.

    I think the gesture is nice hun...
    But a horrid idea...you just never know.
    I wouldnt give that info out to anyone, especially someone I know off the net, you're kindof asking for something to happen..But that is just my opinion.
    But that is a nice gesture though...

    It is really sweet and generous of you, but sharing identities and passwords on the net is never a very safe idea.

    It isn't like lending someone your Zoo Membership card.
