Heres a question I have been wondering about for the last two years..

Why are IP addresses available to sitters? Isnt that valuable info for a hacker?

You should trust the people you let sit your account.

Besides that I don't really know why the IP info is available.

You should be able to trust your tribemates and such, but how much can you really trust a screen name?

Knowing the IP alone isn't all that big of a deal. Most likely there is just isn't any significant reason to prevent the sitter from seeing it.

Thanks Servy. :icon_wink:

I was under the impression someone could 'hack' you with an ip address.

It's an address, just like the address to your house. You'd need to know it if you planned on doing anything (whether or not it's malicious) but that doesn't mean that it is sufficient in and of itself. That is unless your computer is completely insecure with no firewall, antivirus, etc.

I may be missing it. But, is "hacking" against TW rules? If so, I have to report a hacking. And no, I haven't given my password out to any one and I have it stored in only one place.....my head. I would like to get the guy that did it! I have his "TW coordinates!" I would like to get my troops back, but that's probably not going to happen.

Thank you!

Check your email that you used to register the account. If you received notice that your accounts email address has changed, follow the prompt in the message that directs you to change the email back. After doing this, or if there is no email notifying you of a change in the email account for your tribalwars account, simply click the lost password prompt on the log-in screen.

Then you were looking on the wrong email account. You have two weeks to revoke a changed email address.

Wait, you are playing two worlds with the same account?

Then I have no idea why you can log into one and not the other, unless, of course, you deleted your account from one world. However, it takes about 5 days for an account deletion to go through, so you should still be able cancel the account deletion by logging into W43.

Also, information like that is pertinent if you wish for people to help you here.

If you did not delete your W43 account, and you can't log into it, but you can log into your other world, I would suggest sending in a support ticket.

It it illegal to have two accounts on the same world. I would suggest contacting them through another medium, perhaps e-mailing or IM'ing them.

And as I said before, that (the bolded passage) is illegal.

Is the account name for W43 different from the account name for W46? If so, then are you sure you checked the right email address? You said earlier you only have one email account, yet, to have more than one account name in Tribalwars requires two different email addresses.

However, if you play both worlds under the same account name, send in a support ticket from your other world. (I would also suggest trying to use the "remember me" option when logging into your W46 account. This would prevent you having to re-enter your password every time you log in and will allow you to access every world that account is active on as well as join new worlds.
