In the old Community, we had a situation of someone who created a "copycat" account to impersonate another forum member.
As such, there are to be NO "copycat" or "impersonating" accounts.
Unlike most of the other stuff, this is not a "three strike" situation. If you are found to have a "copycat" account, you will receive one warning. And this warning is simply so you can create a new account. The other will be deleted.
If you attempt to use a "copycat" account to pass yourself off as another forum member, you will be banned from the community.
That being said, I also wanted to talk about duplicate accounts. My personal feeling is that nobody needs more than one account. If you are going to post something, take ownership of it. However, there will be times where selected people will be allowed to have more than one account.
As of now, if you wish to have more than one account, please PM an Administrator (Robin, Lilly, or Myself -- not Anne. She has enough to do already!) for approval.
Any duplicate accounts currently existing will be "grandfathered" in. However, any further duplicate accounts that are not approved will be deleted. If the account -- or any subsequent accounts -- are recreated, the IP will be banned.
