    I have more than one account and I know other members on here do as well.:roll:

    Banned

    Perhaps someone who has been banned for life but then made another...?

    i dont myself, but it would be interesting to know where the harm is to have another username? i did not know its not allowed

    that may explain it :thumbsup:

    One username per person, that's a pretty standard forum rule anywhere. We don't aggressively enforce this, however in cases where someone has been banned previously we do pass the ban on to new usernames.

    Having more than one account on a forum is frowned upon and usually against the rules

    Guess this must really be for use on the "unloved & exiled" as I have an ID on HUKD & my other half does too, although I guess I could fall into the first catagory...depends who you ask!!! They both have different contact e-mails but using the same PC at home would give us the IP address wouldn't it??? How can you differentiate between this (& a shared household) & a forum member using multiple ID's?!?!?!

    I dont understand why you need 2 account unless you are banned.

    How do you know he wasn't trying to 'turn over a new leaf'? I mean his first post was a biggie.:?

    Admin has 2 accounts!! :whistling:

    I didn't think sock puppets were allowed at all.

    I thought 2 accounts per I.P adress was normally only allowed if its someone sharing a computer.

    It's a pretty standard rule...it's also pretty standard that admins and mods don't have to follow the rule for the obvious reasons they often need test accounts.

    It makes sense to me, it can prevent a lot of problems but isn't something that needs strictly enforceing for most users etc

    3 people in my household have different accounts on here.

    I think its fine for a mod/admin to have a duplicate account because they have to be professional but having a normal account allows them to let their hair down and be themselves.

    Making another account when you dont need to is just using valuable server space, which is why most forums only allow 1 per ip.

    suppose with duplicate accounts you could just give the other account lots of rep.

    As for "how can you tell", Well it will be the different posting style also.

    suppose with duplicate accounts you could just give the other account … suppose with duplicate accounts you could just give the other account lots of rep.



    Thats why you have to spread rep around before giving it to the same user again - makes it harder to do that

    I dont know why anyone would want more than one account on a forum - on a site that sells stuff then people use them to use codes more than once - but I only ever have 1 username on forums (means I dont have to log in - just stay logged in!)

    If someone wants to turn over a new leaf all they have to do is email us and apologise for their actions and assure us it won't happen again...in most cases.

    I couldn't remember another username or password thats why I use the same one on all the sites I visit. To easilly confused :giggle:
    I compleatly understand why Mods have more than one - sometimes its nice to be a person rather than an athority figure.

    :thinking: emmas post makes more sense now I guess :giggle:

    I have about 3 usernames and 2 passwords. I know which pass it is (usually stored anyway!) by what the site is - site that sells something has one, email/forums/quidco etc have another

    I agree, means mods can want to be anon, but other than that it doesnt make sense

    I haven't got the post count in me for another account. lol

    I don't think any of the mods do this, that would be quite mispeading to you guys. I have a normal account that I can log in to for testing purposes, e.g. to see how something looks from a non-mod POV.
