Trying to make sure it's working....
Punch the "dot" and do what?

Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.


If tone is more important to you than content, you are at the wrong place.

There's the "cute" alter ego alias's.

and then theres the type used to vote more than once in a contest poll or other things....

And there's also the type to stoke subjects already being discussed, or to agree with a post that you wrote under the guise of some other username. I feel like I've seen this a few times lately. Where one user posts another user always seems to echo their opinion... :lol:

I'm JimO on nearly every forum that I frequent and definitely on all the amphibian fora. If I tried to use a different alias, I know that I'd screw something up. I might even end up in a heated argument with myself.

One here for me as well! I do have different names for stuff like PSN, but most everything as far as forums go this is my usual name! Frogs, snakes, cars, and Xbox Live, etc!
Thanks, TJ

I use one. I want to be able to find my old posts, as well as other to be able to find me wherever I go. This is very important to me because of my website.

Just so everyone knows...and without going into CSI detail...we pretty much know who has registered and who uses secondary or fictitious accounts. The other forum can, as well.

We here at DD, tend to just keep an eye on the "other" accounts rather than delete or "out" them. That way, the user has no idea what we- the administration, knows.

Ficticious accounts are a little different than Alias's, as started in this thread. A true "alias" is simply a alternate name used for ease or some degree of anonymity and that's bascially ok. It gets "ficticious" and against all Terms of Service or User Agreements when a secondary account is opened up. They are used mainly to surf the board anonymously, pad a contest with extra votes (possibly), circumvent a banning -banned account, or..and here's the big one....sell or buy animals on the sly.

Someone asked me about all this a while back and I tired to find an existing thread to better catalog and archive info here for future use (you all know me. :wink: ).

So...there it is....some info on multiple accounts.
