We all have our primary account
Bus is having multiple alts socially acceptable
Is it ok if you have 1 alt but you make it painfully obvious that its an alt... Maybe giving it the same sig and pic and icon and writing down in the foum signature that this is the alt to:______

What are our unwritten or written rules with alts

I don't see a problem with alts as long as it's not a troll or gimmick account or it's used to evade bans.

Alts are stupid and pointless, especially when they're clearly just second accounts for another user

not even roleplaying, jesus christ


I'm not banned, this is just where I'm vulgar.

Yeah man, they should at least make a gimmick account, that's what I'd do. But not until I've finished this bowl of delicious, crunchy Bran Flakes.

This is actually my only account. I just really don't see the use in making alts. What's the point really? If you use them to get past a ban (which I've only had one as far as I know) and if they catch you, there are consequences, and I really don't see what else you would use them for.

And the punchline is that I have no alts at all.

I have 3 accounts on here. But I don't post with my other two or do much of anything with them. One of them hasn't been touched at all and on the other I vote for experience and b/p points sometimes.

I have over 30 alts that I don't even know about, back in the early 2000's I had a thing about registering a fuck load of accounts, I don't even know why, I find new ones on occasion. I don't mind alts, at all, they're handy if you want a secondary account to use for different stuff, or if you get bored of one username easily.

But they have actual uses that don't break the rules, too.

I second this, and everyone who uses an alt deserves to die a slow, painful death in a really hot fire.

Some people use them to get around the 4 post limit, and of course some use them to get around bans (which is highly illegal in our world of NG). It's also a way to hide your identity so that nobody judges your primary account.

I don't see the point of alts since I figure that the mods can recognize the IP addresses and I always post with the same computer... or at least I usually do.

So you can get away with being yourself around the rest of your insecure jerk-off friends. I don't use alts though, as I don't particularly care if someone online thinks I'm from Texas.


I tried, later then.

I believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so if we banned alts right off (just as an example) we wouldn't need to deal with yours.
