We have a policy here at Scratchpad that requires everyone to use only ONE (1) account/username. There are very few exceptions to this rule.[1]

For the last several months, however, many members of the Scratchpad community have created, and are using, multiple accounts/usernames contrary to our policy, and despite having been warned to stop doing so. Some individuals have created scores and scores of such accounts! This makes it impossible for other members of the community to keep track of who is actually making the edits, which is why we have a policy against using multiple accounts in the first place.

To correct this problem, I will immediately begin shutting down all accounts/usernames held by individuals editing from multiple accounts. After which, I will unblock only ONE (1) account for those people to use from then on.

Warning WARNING: Anyone who returns to using more than one account/username contrary to SP:LEGIT, will be permanently banned from editing at Scratchpad.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask below in the comments section. Face-smile.svg Thanks!SpikeToronto 17:14, December 20, 2016 (UTC)
