I know i had a thread awhile back asking about this but i cant find it anywhere.

My question is for people that share a pc with someone when they make their picks.

Yesterday my buddy and his brothers picks kept messing up when they were trying to make them..They been using the same PC forever and never had this trouble before...so today im lookin at the results and i seen he got 12pointa and it only showed he picked like 2 or 3 fights when im positve he picked all the fights at some point before the event..When one of them put their picks in it was messing up the other ones picks.It never happened before and it kinda sucks that he lost out on all picks.

I put picks in for my 2 cousins that were on vacation and i didnt have any trouble.Im just wondering was it an issue with the site or could it of been his pc..either way its pretty lame.

I'm pretty sure I can see the log out button. Every event we run into problems with picks due to the fact that we have siblings sharing a computer.

Yea i sort of didnt clarify that well, there goes my shot at trying to be a smartass (was jk of course)....what i was trying to say was maybe they forgot to log off of one account to log onto the other one.

I understood your question. 40ozs topic is referring to me. My brother and I make picks on the same computer. Every time we log in and out it messed the picks of the other user up. Most of the time I'll sit there and piss with it until I get them back to normal. Last night I thought I had gotten it but the picks still got messed up. As I was saying yes I know how to log out , being that my brother and I have been doing this since season 1.

i suggest one of you use firefox for this website, and one of you use internet explorer for this website.

no more logging in and out.

probably will take care of it.

I've never heard of that happening before. When you're done putting your picks in, try opening your Fight Companion before you log out. Hippy said that seems to stablize the picks sometimes. I think we've all had a fight get screwed up like this sometimes, but not every time.

If you're all using the same computer then you should make two separate user accounts for the computer itself. That way your internet browser will relate to whoever is logged into the computer. When you are done using the computer just log off and nothing can ever get screwed up. If you are using a standard PC just go to the Start menu -> Control Panel -> Users.

I just pretty much wanted to know if it had something to do with them having the same IP and thinking it was a duplicate account or something..

My one buddy is poor and lazy and his internet usually gets shut off 4 or 5 times a year due to not paying the bill ..so their may be a span when i put his picks in for him..as i have in the past..

Nope, that wouldn't cause a problem. Tons of people on here have friends that use their computers, and several husband/wife, brother/brother and entire families on here. Its gotta be something with the computer. You might also want to look into downloading the newest version of java and see if that fixes anything, or the alternate browser or alternate log-ins like previously suggested.

It was more like we had a problem with the two clones you were running, but I'm sure you already knew that.
