Sockpuppets:

How many do I have? I've deleted one already, but that might be inadequate.

v Danke.

By the way, folks. The tool that Bobby G is using not the method the automatic detection system uses. His is a lot less sensitive and only uses one method — IP sharing.

4? I thought I destroyed 2 of them already.

[up]Ah. That explains it.

You got some dirt on you. Here's some more!

Three, Ivy.

The puppet-checker includes accounts you've deleted, by the way.

Fast Eddie, what about people who live near one another, or posted from the same computer as one another? There are three users who I know have used the same computer in the past, and each of them has a modest number of sockpuppets, but the total pushes them up to ten.
Ten? Yeah, that works. I was worried when the number five came up because some people legitimately have more than that, but I don't think anyone's ever using more than ten at once.

Ah, okay. I think that there was an alt or two that I created several months ago when the forums were going wacky and people couldn't log in without making a new account. I forget the details.

Puppet-checker says 6. Sending you the list.

Waluigi? Oh yeah, that's a long but amusing story I definitely shouldn't post here.

Thank you, Bobby, that was very helpful.
...and that's how I ended up in the wardrobe.

By the way, do sockpuppets that are never used on the wiki, forums, or use pms, etc. count? (directed at Fast Eddie)
If people learned from their mistakes, there wouldn't be this thing called bad habits.
Might as well confirm this: I only have the one sockpuppet, right?
All sockpuppets count.

@ Ghilz and INUH: Puppet-checker turns up nothing for either of you.

Yay! My campaign of evil went underdetected. Mwahahahahhaha!

Actually just was asking coz when I first editted the wiki I used my Uni's computers, and at least once my edits were signed under another name. Thanks Bobby G!
Huh. Probably because I never actually used the one I created.

^^ & ^^^ From the sound of it, Fast Eddie's tool will still detect your accounts, but it won't matter because you each have only two accounts anyway.

^ As am I... >_> I made several sockpuppets over a year ago which I no longer have the passwords for.

I'm trying to delete some old sockpuppets, but the log on page is being weird for me and not acknowledging my logging off.

How many do I have anyway? I made a couple for an old thread that I've forgotten the passwords to.

Kill all math nerds
Come to think of it, I was on a different computer than my normal one when I made the sockpuppet.

Could I maybe get a count from the "more sensitive" method? Or at least a "yes or no" if I would be banned? Because I was 90% certain I wouldn't be, but then Bobby G gave me a rather unexpected PM.

Also, what about people who first got known on a public computer? If a few people use TVTropes from a certain community center in the Ninth Ward that I haven't been to in three years, will we all be banned?

I'm pretty sure I have five accounts total unless I've made another and completely forgotten.
The statement below is true.
The statement above is false.

Can you check me? I've been known to leave a place for a while, forget I had an account, and make a new one. Hence why I started standardizing my usernames to Icalasari

Also, do main accounts count to the limit? As in, is the limit 10 INCLUDING the main account, or 11 including the main account?
I wonder what a strip tease from a creature made of souls would be like?

Oz, the puppet-checker finds only four accounts of yours, but I know that's wrong because it doesn't identify Statue Girl.

Icalasari, the puppet-checker turns up only one account for you.
