I'd like to have a discussion about 'multiple characters'.
The topic has come up a few times, mostly in relation
to downvoting, but I can't remember a discussion devoted
Personally, I would rather not see multiple characters
because I see this as a discussion where you shouldn't
need multiple logins to express your different sides.
I want to feel that I'm communicating with a person
not a MUD character--although with a single login a
person can, of course, present a facade.
As has been mentioned other times,
multiple logins come with the potential of abusing the
voting system. With talk of priviledges such as
document editing coming with rank, that translates into
a real ability to affect the site.
Of course there would be no real way to enforce a ban
on multiple logins, but as there's no way to enforce any
of the other things being discussed that's hardly a reason
not to bring it up. It's just a thought on how I'd like
things to be, mostly from the social aspect.
