Multiple accounts

Recommended Posts

Firstly,  I've put this in marine talk so everyone can see it.

As most of you know, multiple accounts are not permitted, except in specific circumstances, like a work and personal account. 

This is due to the issues with sock puppet accounts and trolling in the past.

The way we can identify dual accounts is not completely bulletproof. Mostly,  it's by ip addresses, and now, in this version, also by device mac address.

So, I currently have the situation where two accounts are used from the same device, and the initial member assures me that it's two separate users.

The issue I have, is that other than the nature of the posts, I have no way to verify this. I've had these assurances before, and they have been proven false.

I've been thinking about this for a while. My preference is not to allow this. Most people have their own devices, right? What do you all think? Is it fair to say one account per device?

No issue yet, as I've currently merged the two accounts. But it has been a big issue in the past,  and takes up lots of moderation time when it is.
