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 to it.

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.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
