    It's fine to not report but while some forums will ban members who create dupes/sockpuppets, we do not, so it's not really something to worry about.

    The policy states:

    If a member with no previous offenses is discovered to have multiple accounts, he or she will be asked to choose one and the others will be merged into the main account. Members with previous offenses (including previous duplicate accounts) who create duplicate accounts will be subject to a ban, the length of which will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
    How this plays out is if the member who creates a dupe is not banned we will merge the accounts and tell them not to do it again. If they did it again they'd probably get infracted or slapped, autoban is not the style.

    If someone creates a dupe to get around a ban or potential ban due to having 3 infractions, that's when there's issues.

    What if a member wanted a fresh start? There is a big difference between having two accounts for the purposes of trolling and starting a new account for the purpose of a fresh start.

    Sure trolling results in infractions/bans, the other results in a merge.

    Why is merging deemed necessary?

    When TJG or whatever his name was was banned then came back under a different name, i know instantly it was him as the style of writing was sooo similiar .. I didn't say anything as it was fun .. Until he was caught, hehe.

    I don't think it's a big deal so i couldn't grass them up. But then i did speak to a mod as i thought my ex had a sock puppet account on here as he knew what i was writing.

    1. How do you propose we tell the difference between what's a fresh start and what's trolling? we still have to make a subjective decision.

    2. Do you know how many people on this forum say they're leaving, then come back? Or who got wiggy after posting a lot and tried to delete all their posts, because they kind of danced between saying too little and saying too much? There are far more of those than those who need a "fresh start," honestly, in the 4+ years I've been here. We don't need the forum littered with inactive, abandoned accounts.

    3. There are also those who will abuse their accounts if there is no connection between one account and the next.

    Because of all that, we will ban those who create dupes to troll and/or circumvent bans. If someone creates dupes for other reasons and/or wasn't really aware of the rule, typically we'll do a merge instead and issue a warning. It's not an unreasonable request to have people maintain a consistent account here.

    No. If I knew someone had a dupe account, I would probably cackle in glee and egg them on. FOR SCIENCE, GUYS.

    Unless they'd been banned for, like, stalking people or killing @Patches or something. I'd report them then.

    Incidentally, I've been suspected of having dupes, but I don't actually have any.

    The forums that I frequented before Typology Central were all very...anarchist, to say the least. So the concept of moderation is a little bit baffling to me. I think a good fight can be highly instructive to observers. As long as people aren't posting child porn everywhere, I don't really see the need to ban them. Plus, I think watching dupes and waiting to see how long it takes people to figure them out can be pretty fun.

    That being said...I am a very good little girl and obey all the rules anyway. I'm not interesting enough to be controversial.
