That is why you need to be active on your alternative character; more so around the business.
If I'm active around the two businesses with my main, but not my alt..would this be accepted? like just logging in on my alt to /lock.
You are not even allowed to role-play knowing your alternative character on your main and since whoever's name is on the porch is the owner, you can probably understand why the rules say what they say.

Can you please let the admin answer please? I asked for this once before..thank you :)

I've rped having Royal's key on me before while not having it on me script wise and I took the key on my alt, and an admin confirmed this IG when I did it..so it's the same situation, waiting for the admin response.

Those are the rules, whether you like it or not. An admin reply isn't going to change that.
It's also a simple case of common sense, actually. Just think about how easily this can be abused, if your business is on another name as your own. That's why it's not allowed.

These threads aren't here to discuss admins' decisions. They are to ask questions about the rules.

I made it clear that I would like an admin's answer? can you stop giving not needed instructions?

You're right, my bad. I'm giving you instructions you clearly don't need.

I don't know what is so hard in respecting my request? you aren't an admin/tester..your replies aren't answering my questions and I'm not taking them into consideration..I'm not going to reply for any of your posts..I'm waiting for an admin response.

I've read the business rules more than once and there is nothing stating being active on the alt...all what is needed is to have the business active on the server, so if I'm making it active..but using it by my main, is that fine? for example RP'ing owning a betting shop and a club..having the club on the alt and opening it 2~3 times a week by my main, just logging on my alt to /lock the business. (so by this I'm not breaking any activity rules in the business rules)
Properties such as (strip) clubs, bars, betting shops and restaurants are required to open at least twice during a 1 week period. The business must actively inform players that it's open and available. (/ad or /cad)

Stop acting like that just because he answers your question, loay. I can confirm what he quoted is true so you can stop reporting the posts now.

You need to be active and role-play actively on both accounts. Main & alt. If you own a bar on your alt, you need to role-play with it at your alt not on your main because your alt owns the bar not your main.
i was head of testers, head of factions and an in-game lead admin. i also led a faction called Beasley & Associates now i'm just that washed up swede

Thank you, I just wanted an admin's reply.
I've RP'ed having Royal's key while I'm already owning Victim Bets and an admin IG told me it's fine and nothing against this to have the key on the alt just to /lock the business.
Another incident that I asked an admin about a friend holding a business for me that I'm RP'ing it's owner and he told me nothing against it too.
And I know some players who used to own more than one business RP'ing the owner of all of them on the main and they are pretty known..it's not like they are trying to hide..that's why I'm a bit confused.

What's the rule regarding business openings and arson? I was told by a certain admin that it was a hard enforced rule that I cannot open my business for a week unless I RP renovations and screenshot them personally, but I don't see it anywhere at all in this forum. The situation involving the two factions was determined over after a death, from my POV it makes no sense keeping the business shut.

I'm not aware of that rule. I suggest you contact Marshall about it.

Yes, if you own a car and want to give it away for free you can do a raffle for it.

Is it allowed to use your alts to run a car dealership?

You know the vehicle slot limit becomes an issue if you're doing it big. Basically I'm asking if it's allowed to take the orders with a main account and then sell the cars with the alts.
Not around now. ^^
