If different people sharing the same IP address, living in the same household, write on HubPages would there be any problems? I have seen different family members writing on HP, but only assumed they lived in a different household, so it is okay to comment on each other's work without problem as writers, but what if you live in the same household, can you comment on each other's work, or would HP think you are one person with two accounts?

Hi Marlene, yes, I know to never click on any hubbers' ads whatsoever. And my family decided not to write on HP. But now I am concerned as I have a new laptop I am using, and it has a different IP address than the other.
Hello Faith, I think it doesn't matter what the IP address is. I have used my husband's computer when mine was "down" and I was able to use HubPages with no problems. In other words, I still got paid!
Oh, joy!!! Thank you so much, as I did not want to do anything to mess up my account. Now, if a family member does join, I hope we can keep things straight. Bless you!
Be sure to keep track of the people you sign up. I mean, each time I referred someone, the association was not automatic. I had to contact the HP team and then the referral had to verify to HP that they wanted to be connected to me.
Oh, okay, thanks Marlene, as I did not even think that either!
Did I miss something? Google says you must not click on your own ads, but I need to go find where HP says you can't click on other hubbers ads. How are we supposed to find out what the ads are if we can't look at other peoples ads?
Thanks, tirelesstraveler, for the link. Yes, I think they do not want us to repeatedly click on those special hubber friends' ads to help them along, otherwise, it seems to be okay. It just seems like I remember reading to never click on any ads.
Thanks Thief12! Well, I just got a laptop and I was using the older computer, so if I start using the new computer, even though I may switch back and forth, will that be a problem?
Not at all. Your new computer will be assigned a unique IP address, and you can even use both. Plus, like everyone has said here, multiple HubPages users can log in from the same computer provided each signs out from the website afterwards.
Hi Diana Lee, Oh, I never have clicked on anyone's ads, as I read we are not to do so, even on other hubbers. Yes, I know those who have more than one account, but wanted to make sure about the commenting part and the IP addresses. Thanks so much.
Thank you tirelesstraveler, I remember reading when I signed up that hubbers are not to click on others' ads, but if that is not the case, good to know!!! Appreciate the link. Blessings.
