I made a boo-boo
So earlier, I had this major brain fart(and my comp was acting up too) and I couldn't log into my account. I tried everything — resetting the password, different pw's that I might have used. In the process of that, I made the horrible mistake of making a second account to just pm an admin(which I did. Twice.). So, I guess I'm just making this thread so I can say that I only did it cause I had no other choice. The email I had originally made my account with was hacked into a while back and I had to inform an admin of my situation. However, just a few minutes ago, I remembered my password and now I'm just typing this message here to say that if my new, temp account is deleted/made a guest, it won't put me in trouble would it.
FYI, my other account is "Elbade". I just know this was a major boo-boo that I made and I'm hoping that a simple deletion can be arranged to make it all better.
FYI 2, the admin I pmd twice about this; once for a requesting of new password, but a second time just telling them that I fixed it myself. Anyways, the admin was Contra. So, Contra, if you view this thread, would you please do what I aforementioned in the pm and just delete my other account. I am truly sorry about this in the first place.
You can have up to five alts, if I remember correctly.
REally? So, there isn't a rule about having more than one account?
Just the five unless you use it for ban evasion.

But if you decided to, for ex., use an alt account and your main account on the OT section for your own giggles and anything noncontributing then you could be put into the line of fire.
Alt's are fine for the purpose of seperate action. So for example, you've had trouble with a certain roleplayer in the past, but want to join an RP they're also in without causing a ruckus, you could make an alt for that. Or maybe you don't want your hardcore arena mates to know you're also really into slave/master 1x1's. Perhaps you have some controversial views in OT which you don't want RP partners to judge you for. Those are the kinds of reasons the site still allows alt's. I doubt this is any kind of issue, though, but you could just PM a staff member to ban/delete your alt account instead next time :P
