2 usernames at once?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
is there a way a person can have 2 usernames lit up on someones yahoo messenger at once?

I want to catch someone out and I want to know if I am talking to the exact same person when 2 user names are lit up. Any ideas how its done?

    ok i dont know if i understood correctly but it is possible that a person can be on yahoo messenger using one name and in the yahoo chatrooms using another cos i have done it many times

    it is possible, i know a couple of my friends have two Yahoo IDs. if they're one and the same person, then when they come online, they'll light up both at once and u'll get two "user online" announcments (the door knocking, in my case).

    however it is possible that they have a small network in their home as i used to, and that way both me and my sister could be online at once.

    that's all i know about it tho <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    did it ever occur to you that julie could be online in newcastle and her sister could be online in cardiff, and that be it?!

    if someone was using 2 IDs (you can have one for your main profile and add another profile on, i guess maybe so you can talk to work people/family members with something resembling your real name and your net friends with your nickname? dunno), then like has alreayd been said, theyd comeonline and offline at the same time and you'd notice.
