View Full Version : Double identity? (using more than one username on AW is a no-no)

Is it possible, when I'm already posting under one screen name, to have another as well?

I have something I'd prefer to post under a pseudonym because I want a fresh start.

Thank you.

Just log out and make a new account under a different email.

Why do you want a fresh start?

I would check with a mod...I believe this is seriously frowned upon.

Frowned on or not, it didn't work! They wouldn't let me go! I'm flattered.

How now do I get a moderator to notice my question?

You need a fresh start? Who did you murder?

I thought still alive was a pseudonym. You mean that's your real name?

Is there a reason for wanting another account other than whimsy? Just curious.

It's a simple answer. No murder unless after I post my "tome" it'll be mine. :)

I've put many postings on here about my novel that I'm seriously trying to find an agent for. I want to post on SYW a completely different "thing" I'm working on just for fun. I just didn't want the two mixed up.

And besides the second one tweaks some sacred cows tails!

I'll bring this up in the moderator discussion area and see if an admin can advise. Please be patient!

Almost everybody here on AW has multiple pieces that they share. I don't see the problem. And you should stand behind/beside your work without being afraid of beating up cows. (-;

Regardless of which, I've asked the question, let's see what happens.

Thanks, Derek. If I can wait on agents' answers I can sure wait on yours! :)

And KTC, it's not beating on them that so much bothers me; it's when they beat back!

I think my simple question has drawn sarcasm, when I only meant to feel comfortable posting.

Derek, thank you for checking, but the purpose has been defeated anyway. My cover is already blown before I got it.

This is a very uncomfortable forum for "outsiders" I see, so I'll withdraw from it happily. And take my question with me. There're certainly other sites on which I can seek opinions. Valid ones. And please don't say I have no sense of humor when the truth is I don't have your senses of humor or whatever it is.

Yeah. We seriously frown on multiple IDs here, for a number of reasons. So here's the admin weighing in on the question: No.

Wow, dude. Lighten up.

Methinks this guy wouldn't have lasted long here anyway. ;)

Next time, consider PMing a moderator instead of asking on an open forum (this applies to everyone).

I'm not sure why everything thinks it's OK to ridicule the OP but it's really not.
