Accounts & Avatars

What do you think that is using more than one account/alias here?

I personally happen to have one that I did as mistake (called Sub-Zero or something).

Do you think person with multiple accounts should be punished?
Some of the boards where I have been there has been problem with "fakers" who say to be something else they are.
Would you think that as problem if that would happen here?

What would you do if I would suddenly say that I'm not what I have said to be?

And about Avatars...
Do you think everyone should have one own?
I have said this before but it would add both visual context to the site more than it has now?

There are some members with same avatars and some have none.
I think it would easier to each has own avatar...
But that's only my opinion...

Yes, I'm trying to teach "morales" here possibly or be the Jesus but anyway...

everyone having their own avatar is a good idea, and i agreefully that it would add a more distinct visual context than is already preasent. It would be most beneficial to those of us that havent been here a long time and are trying to get a feel for others' personality. But it doesnt seem tha there are enough for everyone, there are almost 1000 members to this community. Although some like you have metioned may be just one person with different aliases, which i believe to be decietful and something should be done whether it's deleting all except for one, or all of them, which would make it necessary to sign up again, which is a hastle(as is filling out stuff for anything). Im pretty sure I'm not the only person with this avatar, but i dont see it on many other posts so i keep using it, i would change it to something different but i dont feel that there are any options and that most of the good ones are spoken for (sometimes more than once).

To answer part of your question, multiple logins are at the very least highly discouraged here. Especially if someone uses multiple aliases to get around penalties. I'm sure many of us can remember a case like this in the not too distant past.

As far as avatars are concerned, Valeriy is working on it. Avatar locking should be a thing of the not too distant future. And believe it or not, there are quite a few avatars that are not in use by anyone. And getting a custom avatar is not that hard, nor is it all that hard to find something you'd like on the web. It just takes a little patience and searching. A regular poster here usually has litle difficulty getting the required 50 posts.

For me personally. I like being able to scan a thread, and recognize a poster instantly from their avatar. It can have some weird results, though. I was playing a hotseat game the other day, and hired Astral and Saureg. My opponent couldn't understand why I kept referring to them as 'Oldtimer' and 'Angelspit'.

Avatars and aliases

I myself have an alias here and I don't see anything bad about it as long as multiple personalities ain't meant to harm/ harass/ insult the other community members or bring any kind of damage. As long as it's fun and is OK with the others, I see np.As I said, I have an alias here on my one. A very peaceful and funny one. *shrugs* I created it to play a game with it. For fun *shrugs again* Val said it was OK.

As for avatars, sticking to only one can be boring. EG I pick up avatars to suit my RL state. Jezebel is like the RL me but I have a lich when I lose my voice. That sort of stuff.

Yeah, I have the same problem. Every time I see Aenain I think of Sha_Men.

BTW, I have another screen name here, but I've never used it. The first day I came here I signed up as "Cyclone." Then the next day I couldn't remember the password and didn't realize there was a way to find it, so I just made a new one.

I'm also known as...

"Ramparter"
I made the account to spread all my QPs on different profiles.
Next one to be made is "SorceressCastler"...



Okay.. I'm just kidding. He is not me (sorry Ramparter).
Actually I think everybody should only have one account. It was very confusing when Incubus posted with all those different logins, and said his opinion five times in a topic he even started himself... (no offense incy, just a good example)

Yes, I bet Incubus has done that

But I can use my alias to represent different points of views... This is hypothetic, I'm not saying I'm doing it.

See? I have many faces. Nobody can know for sure just who is who. That is why we must take precaution not to gossip about someone to another, about that person. Don't be surprised if some day, someone comes up to you, angry at what you said about them, under another alias. Who knows? Maybe I am the only one actually here. Perhaps I'm even posting to myself, responding to myself, against and for myself, in order to entertain myself. There may be no set boundaries, everything is pure fiction. A figment of imagination. We all live in a dream. Nothing is real...

As you may know..

I have two account's in here too. The first was made primarily to "check this place out". Once I learned more about the atmosphere, I figured, why not go with my old D&D name (minus the lord title..)
I thought about trying to get rid of Japangamer. However, I've never seen any post's by "deleted avatar's", and I guess that could cause complexities.
(Is this avatar used by anyone else I should concern myself with?)

Psychologic trap...

You know there is psychologic issue where people thinks he himself is god and all the others are just "objects" to him.
Have forget the name but it could easily happen here too.

Anyways...
I'm against multiple accounts however if people doesn't hurt anyone I understand using one to certain point...It can be fun for the player (like giving other electric shocks) but others will be hurt...
You know...game has to end someday...

I heard that Val is trying to put that lock avatar option up. I really would like to see everyone with avatar. I have sometimes thought that I might change my avatar but then thought that maybe others wouldn't recognise me so easily and might add some confusion.

Celfius you can check from "claim your avatars" thread in Tournament of Honor board if your avatar is in use. I have seen that avatar in use but I'm not sure is it taken by someone who regularly visits here.

Celfious, your avatar is actually owned by a guy named Kreszantas who used to be a divisions coordinator for ToH. Although he's not around anymore, he also used to be a Moderator for the ToH forum. You might want to check with Vesuvius or Valeriy to see about ownership of his Avatar because as far as I can tell, he hasn't made the 50 post reserve limit and has been gone from the Community for about six months now.

PS: I'm me, I always have been me and I don't need to hide behind garbage alter ego's. If I got something to say I say it to your face. Or type it to your face. Or....

Ahhh forgettit!
