Hi Everyone,

A few weeks ago, I added some additional tools (some which are automated) to assist in protecting the community from scammers and spammers. These tools have also found members using more than one account or trying creating additional accounts. When confronted about it, they have admitted to it for various reasons. None which were acceptable.

I just want to make it very clear that you are only allowed to have ONE account on PCF.

I'm not going to give away the algorithm or formula that is used to make a determination but when using Proxies and VPNs, especially for newer accounts, you have a much higher risk of getting flagged and possibly banned.

If you have created more than one account for whatever reason, I ask that you reach out to me ASAP via PM before I find out about. Consider it amnesty. :cool

Thanks,
Tommy

We need a third PCF account status beyond 'active' and 'banned'. Maybe call it "time-out", "in the corner for awhile'', or "I've been a bad boy".
"Bad egg" new members will be so confused
 
I would venture to say no, but hints, yes
At the very least, Tommy could leave feedback on the users main accounts, and it would be an Easter egg for all of us! Or maybe tag them similarly to “Supporting Member”, but put “Donkey” or “Jackwagon”.

He knew what he was doing when he mentioned some did it but didn’t have good reason. Let the streets run red with blood! Barabus! Barabus! Barabus!

"Chipsstealer"
 
The admin of mdshooters for a while kept score of the number of times a clown named Lone Ranger tried to make new accounts. He got banned for suggesting illegal things and last time I checked he had tried 17 times. Usually only got one or two posts in before the ban hammer fell again.

Some people I swear lol smh! What compels someone to repeatedly do something like that?!
 
Or bypassing vendor limits on sales...
Was there ever an instance where a member used more than one identity to successfully win a giveaway? Or shill bid on an auction?
if that has happened I’d like the name named.

Shoot, yall went straight for the nefarious acts, those look like capital offenses.

Im equally as mad at myself for taking 20 seconds to get the meme.
 
I bet one of you finds one of these accounts. An account no longer active. And I bet you’re eventually able to sleuth and connect it to a current user. Whoever and however many people did this, may God be with the one user y’all (we all?) find (honestly it’d suck to be the one person found!)

Calling @BarrieJ33.... :whistle: :whistling:
