New Site Rules Governing User Accounts

The monastery for the most part has been a place without a lot of hard and fast rules. Some abuses of the voting/experience system have resulted in us having to set down some hard and fast rules regarding multiple accounts.
  1. A person may only have 1 account which they use for voting
  2. Any user having multiple accounts needs to identify and report these to a god within the next week and identify one account which is to be used for voting. The other accounts will have their voting privileges removed.
  3. The user with voting privileges will not be able to vote on any nodes which are owned by any of their other users.
Any attempts to hide multiple accounts from the gods will result in action.

Update:You can /msg me with your multi-account info. We are concerned with active accounts. If you currently login with more than one user/ or plan to in the future we want that information.

    Does this mean Paco will finally be coming forward? :)

    On a serious note.. it would be nice if multiple accounts could not approve or frontpage themselves either..

    Perhaps I should cross post this to the Confessional...

    I, blakem, am also known as thepen. For one day I was refered to as CasuMarzu. I think there might be one other "joke" account sitting around dormant somewhere, I'll post it if I can remember it.

    Is this the sort of stuff you're interested in, or are dormant, non-posting, non-voting accounts exempt from the new accounting?

    Update: Oh, yeah.... bubatuber is me too.


      I guess that would fix thepen acquiring XP and starting to clutter the googlable archive with vote buttons once and for all, too.

      Makeshifts last the longest.

    That's it vroom! You get 'im. I just know that Ovid must have multiple user accounts and he's using his nefarious powers to bring unwarranted glory to himself. Heck, all he does is write Perl and play on Perl Monks. No time for his toaster any more.


How can you recover passwords if your email has changed?

    I changed email accounts and managed to lose my password. I have not been able to remember or recover it for some time. My account, raptnor, is very dusty, although I'm here.

    Help? -raptnor

      I'm not quite sure that I'm answering correctly, but I seem to be the only person to have noticed this node, so I'll answer anyway.

      If you have some way of convincing the gods that you are who you say you are, then get into contact with one of them directly. vroom you can email, (Linked to from the bottom of every page.)

      However, as your homenode is empty, and your (single) post doesn't contain a publickey that could be used, it sounds like you're pretty much out of luck.

      Warning: Unless otherwise stated, code is untested. Do not use without understanding. Code is posted in the hopes it is useful, but without warranty. All copyrights are relinquished into the public domain unless otherwise stated. I am not an angel. I am capable of error, and err on a fairly regular basis. If I made a mistake, please let me know (such as by replying to this node).

        I attempted to contact vroom without success.
        I have nothing substantial to convince anyone that I am raptnor. Can I create a new account as `raptnor2'? Since this is version 2, I will fill out the homenode and post a public key in case of future mishaps. I promise ;)
