you guys all have different IPs im sure. and definately dont have the same address. just the same hall. unless you are using your home address. you should be fine

most uni's have a whole range leased (pending size). you should be fine if you all have different ip's and dorms.

I know my dorm had the same address for a group of people, and then the mailroom sorted it based on name. My current apartment complex on campus does the same thing (small amount of people though).

ya...this is what an address here may look like....

John Doe
2005 campus street
512 bender
Cedar Falls, Ia 52013

They do sort in the mailroom...If differnet people put 2005 campus street as there address but specified there room number would that be on hold or allowed?

i dont see why you would be placed on hold.

alrighty....So census vote say this would work alright?? I'd contact freepay but im afraid i'll get the uniform response to all those types of questions...the whole answer that really means nothing thing...

yeah as long as you have individual IPs you should be fine. we get individual IPs at my college and i know alot of people signed up for it there and i didnt hear of any of them getting put on hold

Depends on college's network. A lot of school networks don't offer individual IPs for security reasons. Most traffic goes through a single (or a few) IPs, and all the users have their local IPs (i.e. while the user might see something like 172.xxx.xxx.xxx on his PC, when he goes to a site, the site sees his "real" college IP 192.xxx.xxx.xxx or something like that ) It might, but yet again it might not cause any problems.

So you think i should maybe do one of those "Check my Ip websites" on a few peoples dif. computers and see what it comes up with....?

thats what i would do.

Yeah I'm doing the same thing except I'm not getting any referals from anyone here. I've gone through for Stroid I know, so its working for me.

[quote5c6249f386="tonydanza92"]It appears as though everybody in my apartment building is under the same proxy #, but different IP addresses. Can I still have 1 or 2 of them sign up and complete offers under me from their respective computers? I don't know much about this stuff but since proxies look like ip addresses I got kinda worried. Thanks[/quote5c6249f386]

I live in a college apartment and asked him. I'm sure it is the same as the dorms regarding ip's and stuff. Just don't do anything stupid like doing offers on the same computer with different accounts. Then you'll be fine.
