After countless requests and lots of discussion, I am happy to announce that we will now be allowing alt accounts on the forums!
Alternate accounts will only be allowed to speak in game threads, and are expected to follow the same Global Rules as well as Forum Mafia Rules as all other players.
In order to have an alt account, you must fill out the following application and send it to a single Moderator - this Moderator will be specified once the game passes review, and can be found in the Queue Thread under “Alt Mod.” After completing your application, this Moderator will PM you (likely) within 1-3 days, either accepting or denying your request. An alt account can only be used for a single game, then must be discarded. You may not join/spec/host/backup/vcbot a game on more than one account at once.
Please make sure the application has an appropriate title (ex. ‘Alt Account Application’), as well as the following questions filled out completely.
What is your primary account’s username?
What is the username you are requesting for your alt account?
What game do you plan to play on this account?
Do you promise to not post outside of the game thread, and threads pertaining to the game (such as the sign-ups thread, scumchat, etc.) while on this account?
Do you understand that breaking the Global/Forum rules while on this account can lead to punishments on your main account, as well as a possible blacklist from creating alts?
What is your reason for requesting an alt account?
Do not create an alt account without confirmation that your application was accepted.
Alt accounts are not required to tell a host of their identity, unless the host specifically states this.
Hosts may specify whether or not their game will allow alternate accounts. If alts are not allowed, Moderators will regularly check and make sure that the playerlist contains none.
If a host does not specify whether or not alts are allowed, it is assumed that they are not.
Please try to keep this thread related to the topic. If you have questions, feel free to ask below!
Beta Test Note
This may or may not work: If automod freaks out, the program may be dropped and alts wiped
