I'm betting it's deleted for future use by someone else while security prevents the uploading of a now unknown GUID.
If you delete the realm from the server on one PC, then when you log in on another PC then the realm will disappear automatically (as part of the initial sync process of getting the list of known realms).

But isn't the problem more that RW has been licensed to the user, so he would not be allowed to share the login...
The problem occurs when PC1 forgets to sync after their editing session...

If changes are made on PC2 and he syncs with the server, then later when PC1 comes to sync again he has to decide whether to accept the changes made by PC2 (i.e. whats on the server), or to discard the changes made on PC2 and replace them with the changes made on PC1.

Hey, I never said it was a very good solution but if you're desperate and have faith in the other person it is an optione. Not sure if legally allowed though.

And yes, I think that LWD should look at this feature and try to implement it, once the bloody content market that seems inhibit any other development, is out.

I constantly have this because i forget to sync and do something on my other machine. It's not the programs fault, but the whole synch-system is not my cup of tea. I'm using it, got used to it, but I dislike it because it's (for my ideal use case unecessary). A dropbox like background synch would suffice completely for me. And I could do that with my NAS. Anyways, for the content market and the protection of 3rd party stuff this is all necessary. Like those dvd's you *buy* (or bought if you just stream now adays) and where you are forced to watch 1 minute of copyright garbage.

What you can do though is have multiple people with GM copies creating content that gets put into a master realm.

For example there are about 15 of us contributing content and feeding it into the master realm here.
After a week of searching I finally found some one working on a collaboration.
I have not found any thing about how to do this, could you point me in the right direction. It is just me and one other working on this home brew world. We are both super new to RW and could use some step by step help.

Thank you

Right now no, the method that is supposed to work is resulting in failed imports. As soon as that gets resolved, assuming it does, I'll get someone to post the details here.
