i wouldnt, but people do sign up then apparently forget they have another account, etc, etc, one gets banned and other remains, but when banned account has alot of negative feedback it should be moved to the other account that is still trading maybe no negs :whistling:

skip that and just ban both acounts.

now that i agree with that

any other boards i wouldnt give a flying fig how many accounts they have, but when using the fs boards the feedback isnt giving a true picture, when they rip people off with one account, but get to keep the good feedback account

i could understand a genuine reason for forgetting your user name or the like, even though google chrome remembers your details, but multi id is out for only one thing and that's to conducts something dodgy ..
genuine mistakes yes but the other banned for good

Anyone with one single neg should be banned from selling until they resolve the issue

look at all the old gimmer members in this thread class of 2006:p

as for the selling negs thats only down to the buyer and seller unless the rules are changed but if someone gets banned how would the buyer get it sorted ?

they are banned full stop, but the other account isnt, and before they where banned they where stopped from trading in the fs boards, the other account is still active and trading


last time this happened and we kept posting to warn people our posts wherr removed, did they scam again, what do you reckon

Yep - all accounts should be banned........they are either out to scam someone, or have a back-up account for when they get suspended or banned or to have multiple entries for comps.

Ban them, ban them all .........mwuhuhuhu.....

[FONT="Century Gothic"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="Navy"]I like Lumor's idea.

One neg = ban

mind=blown

Obviously its if tit for tat or fake feedback, mods can use their discretion as always, but basically - one bad sell - ban from selling. Not the site - just the FS board.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

I never understood why anyone with more than one account only gets the extra accounts banned. It's in the rules you can only have one account, if you are found to have more than one (and I can't really think of any genuine reason why anyone would need more than one) then all accounts should be banned.

Sassie,

Thanks for removing the previous post. Those accounts were not linked, although the last one was most definitely a muliple id and subsequently banned (several times). I do see where the reasoning came from though. Leaving feedback for the wrong thread (perhaps due to system limitations) can be a little confusing to say the least. Hopefully the new feedback system is making some inroads towards preventing this from happening, although until we lift the one feedback per thread rule, it may still continue for a while longer.

We won't normally get involved in private disputes, but are keen to offer advice when requested. The post in question however did merit our involvement. It was definitely a misrepresentation of the item for sale. Whilst buyers must beware, this is not a community where such actions are tolerated.

I see that it appears to have moved towards resolution. Hopefully the seller recognised the fact that the conduct was not acceptable and seen the light of day rather than being prompted into action by fear of account restrictions.

Any scammers subsequently found to have multiple accounts will face a complete ban on them all. A multi account found to have pretty poor trading history but an older dormant account, will in these circumstances have the dormant account locked, the multi infracted and feedback remaining.

Of course should feedback reach a certain level indicating poor performace, then whilst they may not be banned, they will certainly be denied access to the fs/ft forums if their feedback merits such restrictions.

If it's just logged IPs that get you found out then surely a shrewd operator would just find ways round this?

Thanks for the response ASB.

I'm sure many members have multi accounts with no intention of scamming in FT/FS but why do they have multiple accounts in the first place? Forgetting their original registrations doesn't really wash and the punishment for multiple accounts is no deterrent from creating more (suspension of original account and banning of mulit account).. If you have an established member who creates a new account they should be banned not given a suspension.....

Some of us have more than one account - but we seeked permission before creating it.

And i know of quite a few reasons why people have more than one account, but only the main account is to be used in the FS/FT forum.

EDIT: As below seems the rules have changed so ignore the above.

Reference to multiple accounts being permitted will only refer to households, not individuals.

Well if i was allowed an extra account i would use mine for PM storage, extra custom tab, and so i can still pm when i get suspended.

but you've been suspended for a reason and part of that punishment is no pms. by having another account your just getting round the punishment you have been given. If this type of thing is allowed then what is the point in punishing anyone for a rule break or even having rules in the first place.

so are you saying you have more than 1 account that you use on a regular basis as an individual, as this is what it appears you are saying

yet ASB says multiple accounts are only allowed per household not for individuals, so it appears someone is telling porkies here from what i can see:thinking:

all multis should be banned unless there is a good reason and i for 1 can not think of any
