Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The moderators are in purple and to the right of the name it says moderator, and then administrators have an A at the beginning of their names and it says Ambassador

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Admittedly I am curious, why do you want to know? I think there was a thread about this awhile ago, I'll see if I can dig it up.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can not tell a difference between mods and admin by their appearance on site.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if a mod didn't want to be a mod, he just couldn't click a magic button?

TranceNova

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Nope, nor do we know the actual process of being "modded" (atleast I don't..)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I can't do anything to myself unfortunately.

SephI

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So only admins can demod.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes only the turkey deboner gets to debone while the others watch.

TranceNova

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, the admins probably have to code it directly... or something less shiney than a button anyway.. Myin, that just sounds creepy!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And you can't just become a moderator they have to see that you are a responsible user, over a certain amount of time

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If someone gets IP banned, and their IP changes, and the other person gets their IP, will that person be banned?

myininaya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You have a lot of names linked to this one through your ip. That is all we can see. We can't see the number.

myininaya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1However, admins can see the actual number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just don't get banned...it's not that hard to not get banned, just don't do inappropriate stuff

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have somewhere around 3040 accounts linked to this IP. I actually use them too.

TranceNova

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure if it is "okay" to have multiple accounts per se, though we will see what the admins say. I figure it is mostly okay so long as you don't give yourself medals, fans or anything else that might increase your score. Also any warnings or suspensions occur across all of your accounts so keep that in mind and keep to the code of conduct.

SephI

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are some accounts that you can't warn because I have a few accounts recovered on here. I have the passwords to useraccounts that I login to, so warning me also means warning them, which isn't fair.

TranceNova

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmmm I'm confused, do you mean other people use your accounts too?

SephI

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Other people use my account, and I sometimes use theres. So the IP tracing on this IP will be fuzzy.

ilikephysics2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use 1 account, your own

SephI

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I use alternative accounts because I don't like to be on this one all the time. >.<

TranceNova

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmm fuzzy indeed, Though the whole idea is that it is supposed to be one person, one account. However in this case, given its so tangled I think it would be best to wait and see what the admins think.

TranceNova

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I doubt they will hate you, though there may be the possibility of them requesting you stick to the one account.

SephI

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can list the accounts that I've recovered and others have recovered for me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, the fact of the matter is that giving your password to other users is in violation of our Terms of Service, which *is* a suspendable offense technically speaking. I quote: "In consideration of your use of the Site, you agree to [...] (b) maintain the security of your password and identification;" That said, I really don't care enough to go hunt down everyone that's possible sharing passwords. If you're not causing damage to the site and you're not disrupting other's attempts to learn then it's not worth the effort required to pursue. But I will inform you that if one of your accounts get suspended, we can  and likely will  suspend all of them if they start popping up after a suspension. So, in all honesty, if you want to protect the innocent in the event things get hairy with your account, you should tell them to start using their own account. myininaya is correct, admins are the only ones who have moderationgranting abilities. Actually, the subset is a bit smaller than that technically speaking. Since you have to make the change directly on the database only those of us who have access to the server can actually make the change. :P However, the decision to mod someone is by committee.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, I see. I will tell remove all the accounts from my computer. I don't want to get my friends banned.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1EVERYBODY. Yes, everybody is the answer. This is a selfmoderated website, and it is you who helps moderate the site. Some people are just like the representatives... known as the moderators. But I proudly say that I am an important member of the community, and you can say that to yourself too! Just be honest and enjoy moderating!
