I was looking at the top 50 CEO positions and noticed that a number of players have several different CEO positions!
Is that a change? Is that allowed now?

Yes, multi-ing in CEOs and countries is legal on GR.
Sucks because in a CEO bid-war whoever spends the most money has the most bidding power. I've twice been in bidding wars with people who have 3-4 accounts. Luckily I'm in a fed with some ingenious primates so I had virtually zero casualties during those wars, (and almost gained as much per month as I would have by bidding on inactive corps.) All without having to ever spend more than $5 a month. =D
If any multis try pushing you around, post it on the boards. You'll have more than just my sympathetic ear.

As I recall it, the impetus for the multi-CEO bidding wars came from Norwegian Elk.
For my part, I started a second CEO because I had at one point given up hope on getting INC out of debt. But I figured out how to reduce the debt and will at some point choose between the accounts.

Elk got his second, third (and fourth?) accounts after (and I believe partially due to) my bid-war with Mousepants, who has 4 ceos.

I have 4 CEO accounts and each one concentrates on a different aspect of goods produced.
I have a mining enterprise, a media and leisure goods enterprise (selling books, clothes, furniture, vacation, jewellry, luxury goods, tv, shows,boats and other such things).
And then there is the construction enterprise, bricks, cement, construction, steel, roads and maintenance and production plants, then there is the food enterprise.
I have had experience of bidding wars and its not very nice, sometimes instigated by myself, but not as a deliberate act to antagonise anyone.
When someone uses multi accounts as a tool of war then that sounds to me like a bit of school playground bullying where a group gangs up on one individual, that shouldn`t be allowed.

I have 3 CEO accounts.
No problems with other players soo far.

Mousepants registered more CEO accounts only after Elk started his multiple CEOs and started bidding on Mousepants.

Ah, my bad. The timing was close enough for me to have noticed Mousepants' multis before I noticed SKP's.

no, you were right mabo, as far as I can tell (not having been directly involved )
Mousepants got mad at you for bidding on her corps. The exchange is on the BB.
You know the specifics of your exchange better than I, but shortly afwterwards, she registered angry mouse, maniacla mouse, etc, and began bidding on your corps as well as fallow corporations in our neighbors.
SKP then began blocking the bids along with Suo, eskon, and yourself.
Im not completely sure this is how it happened, but im not completely sure im not an alien, either. I suspect Erehwon heard a different version
afaik skp possessed those CEOs to more rapidly arm himself, not caring much about the CEO end of things. A shame hes not around to say for sure.
Unless hes lurking...
younever know about those norwegian elk. Theyre creepy, what with those beady little eyes
in any case, who cares how many CEOs anybody has. No intelligent president or CEO has much to owwrry about from bidding anyway.
