family pack

i'm just curious if my general crew of friends can pool together and subscribe to an xbox live family pack, even though our consoles are in different locations and on different ip's

or do all accounts have to be in the same houshold?

All accounts need to be on the same console initially to set up the family pack.  After that, you can take the account off elsewhere and still retain the gold membership.

However, please be aware that regardless of age all sub accounts are considered child accounts while part of the package.  Only the main account holder will be listed as adult.

are there any problems with the other accounts being considered child accounts? can they still play the same games and stuff? or are they literally considered children and limited from adult content?

If they are not members of your family , just friends then you would be breaking the terms of use. That in itself can be a banable offense.

Yep, only the primary account is the adult account. The rest are treated as child, even if they are 18 or over.

I highly doubt you would be "breaking the terms of use" since on the family pack website it clearly doesn't state "No, you would be braking the terms of use." as the answer.

Q: Could a group of friends or roommates share an Xbox LIVE Gold Family Pack?

A: The Xbox LIVE Gold Family Pack is really designed for families. Only the primary account holder may make purchases against their own billing account, which is designed to help families better manage their entertainment budget. The primary account holder will also receive Activity Monitoring reports, and have the ability to access online Family Settings for other members in the Family Pack. As a result, the Xbox LIVE Gold Family Pack may not work well for groups of friends or roommates.

Also according to their FAQ as well, people won't be considered as children if their profile doesn't state so.

Q: How do you determine who the primary account owner, adults, and kids are in a Family Pack?

A: The primary account holder will be the person who purchases or activates the Xbox LIVE Gold Family Pack, likely a main caregiver. Please note that the Family Pack can only be purchased by adults over the legal billing age in their region (18+ in most regions). When the primary account holder first sets up each family member’s Xbox LIVE Gold account, intelligent default privacy and activity settings are applied to each profile based on the person’s age: child (13 and under in the US), teen (13-18), or adult (18+ in the US).

emo: As it states, the PRIVACY settings will be set accordingly, yes. This is no the same as Parental Safety Settings, which Secondary Accounts do fall into.
