I for one only have one account. I have heard that some of you have several alternate accounts. Why I don't know. Maybe so you can pretend to be someone else I suppose.

So answer this please:

Why do you or others do that?

How many alternate accounts do you or others you know have?

Just curious...

I just have one alt. For personal reasons, I'd like to ditch my current one account and use this one from now on.

RPG?

@xanni15: @lorbo:

Yes.

For the RPG section. Some people have over 50+

It helps visualize characters.

Around four. I have my main, one that disappeared, an old one that I abandoned, and another that I wanted to use for RP, but never really did anything with.

When I was doing RPG I had only one.I was lazy and wasn't in the mood for making alts.

#15 Posted by Strider92 (16253 posts) - - Show Bio

Only got this one. Figured having two of me would be too much for comicvine to take!

#16 Edited by Izaiah (5184 posts) - - Show Bio

Between 200-300. Some were made for RPGing purposes (including NPCs of mine), whereas others were mostly for fun.

#17 Edited by Strafe Prower (11887 posts) - - Show Bio

I have a few accounts from my RPG days. I only use this one currently.

#18 Posted by BumpyBoo (8467 posts) - - Show Bio

There are many reasons for someone to have an alt. Some people have them for RPG, others have them for personal reasons, some people I know have alts for when they want to contribute the adult section of the wiki...it depends.

Not me though.

Probably just as well. Your alt Accounts would all fall before my might

RPG.

Not a lot! Though some people would have you believe otherwise.

RPGing, and I've got eight alts.

I made one to test things in the Battles Forum and omigod, that was a lot of fun. Don't really use it anymore -- pretty much most people knew it was me, anyway. My interactions and the way I communicate is pretty much the same and when I made it, I had no idea what an alt was - not in the sense the term is used on here.

Seriously though -- outside of people having alts for RPG and miscellaneous whatnot, having an alt for the express purpose of interacting with other Viners as another person entirely is creepy. I've discovered a few (I am talking about people who have purposely set out to interact with me in PMs, etc) and it's made me a tad wary of new people I come across. Not dramatically so -- I love getting to know people etc, but come on now -- what is the point of pretending to be someone I don't already know? Why do it in PMs? I don't get it -- seriously.

The thing is, this kind of deception doesn't last for too long with me -- something always gives a person away. At present I am embarrassed for a few who still continue to interact with me as though I am not aware of who they are. I haven't called them out on it, it's gotten to the point where it's just too awkward.

:/

Why have multiple account, just follow the rules and leave at that. If you break the rules, deal with it. There's no need to play games, I say, and do harsh things all the time, but I'm prepared to deal with what could possibly come behind that. This doesn't mean that I should use extreme profanity , get banned and rely on another account. That's not being real. it's childish, I will say what's on my mind , because I'm real, and except the outcome.
