I tried to make an email account with google earlier on my father's computer. After I had filled in everything I was asked and clicked "create my account" another page popped up, it asked me for my phone number so it could send me the verification code for my account. I gave up at this point as I didn't have a phone on me. I just finished creating one two seconds ago on my own computer and I was never asked for my number. Anyone have any idea why?

The phone number is a requirement for being able to vote on debates, it's not a verification. I don't think you can have two voting accounts from the same IP Address, so that might be why.

Oh, lol. I should've read more closely. Sorry, I can't be any help then.

Yeah, it's a new thing by Google to prevent spam accounts...sorta like what DDO does here, except instead of preventing spam accounts we prevent vote bombing.

Yeah, I figured that much out, but how come it never asked me? I've never had any accounts with google before this. I can't make sense of it.
