I believe no, they are not allowed, as this is effectively a way to evade a ban (or double your allowance of infraction points)

I will just pop in with a comment that the mods can ban you if you are found to have two accounts. I have read that multiple times over my time on TRF.

So, a wife and husband from the same IP? Is that on case by case basis?

Big dealers are no big deal here.

If either/both accounts aren't adhering to the rules, they're gone.

Bobswatches account has been dormant (not "active" as mentioned in the rules) for more than three years and was set up by someone other than Paul the owner. I can't find a "sam's watches". If you have an issue like this to report you should just send a message to admin rather than openly accuse the forum of preferential treatment in a set-up thread.

As you stated, Bobswatches is this Paul guy, as is Samswatches.

Duplicated accounts not allowed, Bobswatches account zapped.

I think he's saying that Paul Atieri still has two accounts, Paul Watches and Sams Watches.

Thatís what I understood, too.

Both are active and signed as Paul Altieri. Sams Watches started 3/22, Paul Watches back in 2017. Both say Orange Co. Both are Pledge members.

But not ranting here...just the facts.

Good grief. In that case I need technical assistance. I have a web account but it won’t let me post photos because they’re too big. So the solution would seem to be Tapatalk. That won’t let me sign in with my web name. Makes me sign up for a tapatalk account. But my web name was taken so i had to pick another one. So i have two...i think. It really sure how things would post since they are stuck in moderation.

How is this supposed to work?!?

You should have been able to log into the Rolex Forum on Tapatalk using the same user name and password as you used on your other device. Are you sure you used the correct user name and password when using Tapatalk?

There are hundreds of free apps on all platforms that will resize pictures it really is a very simple task.Or open a free account on picture hosting sites like say Imgur,just upload picture software will resize it for you then just copy the forum code and post in your post again very simple to do.

Pretty obvious he thinks the rules don’t apply to Him.
this is totally related to a question i had months ago.... im curious as to the answer. The real issue to me is the name change was deliberate to remove the association to a non "popular" seller around here to rebrand while still representing the same company.

Whats the rule on that?

From that thread.... and my comments copied and pasted:


although one seems inactive.... i thought you couldn't have two user accounts?

https://www.rolexforums.com/member.php?u=43871
https://www.rolexforums.com/member.php?u=183624

If its the same person wouldn't it look like the second account was created to remove the association from Bobs watches? " Paul AT Bobs watches" becoming "Paul Watches"?

why else would you change your name?

I would like to know who i am buying a watch from. If its Bob's or whoever it should be clear. This isn't clear....if there is an association

I do not think it would be fair if i sold Bobs watches under my username and didn't make it clear that i worked for them.
__________________
and
the bigger issue to me is the lack of transparency about who a seller is or who they represent... its bigger than just this one thing.

Take DSW who has a stellar reputation. It still wouldn't be right for Jerry of DSW to sell watches as " Jerrys watches" and not say the watches come from DSW. Its the same both ways, so im not picking on Bob's necessarily. All i am saying is a seller under an umbrella of another seller needs to disclose it.

when its compartmentalized then bad experiences with one dont bleed over into the other or vice versa. Bob's is not popular here, so its harder to sell here. Call it something different and maybe someone buys from the other named seller.


OP thread:
https://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=664366

The big dealers are getting bigger every day and they have multiple employees so its important to clarify who is who and disclose the company they are working for.... IE "Jerrys watches of DSW" ... or "Franks watches of Bobs watches" required in the user name of people who work for dealers who are dealers with a business. For example
