    LOL

    to those with multi-accounts, you could at least make your posts writing different. c'mon, man, i go to wuxia forum and particularly laugh at those posts with 1 post count. THEY ALL SOUND THE SAME!! the smileys, the paragraph spacing, the construction of the sentence....c'mon, they actually think people wont notice?

    The Mods are aware of it and watching it. We suspect the same as the rest of you do, but we're waiting for SC to comment before we proceed further.

    An IP check reveals all unique IP numbers. Nevertheless, I strongly suspect that it is indeed the same person. Whoever is doing this is covering his/her tracks well. At present, I don't have sufficient proof to act further.

    Stay tuned.

    that's good to know, Ken. cuz the 1 post count flood is becoming an eyesore, especially when they all post in the very same thread.....

    oh, and when you catch one, why dont you interrogate him/her too....im really interested to know why theyre doing this. id understand if there's a hot poll going on, but there's basically none and i cant think of one single reason of what purpose would multi-accounts do if the spawning of them isnt poll-related.....

    Hopefully I'm wrong about this, but this person or some people may be planning ahead for the next round of SPCNET Idol or other contests/polls which specify members who join after a certain date or have less than x number of posts aren't eligible to vote.

    Yeah, the admins can run IP checks on everyone that joins the forum. I'm not sure if the mods here can do it too. But almost every single forum I've been a part of ables moderators to check member's IP address. At another forum where I was a moderator, I was able to check IPs and ban/delete accounts if a particular member violated the rules in my area. But every forum differs and the mod's power is limited by the admin.

    Yeah, we moddies can do that but we don't check everyone, just the suspicious ones.

    Then I'm guessing you guys have already checked the new members with 1 post count. There's like 5 or 6 of them and all seems to be in the wuxia section. If I'm to take a wild guess, if all the new members are really individually new members, I guess it's for that new wuxia game that's being started. A member needs at least 300 posts to participate as stated by the thread starter. I guess I'll just wait and see what happens.

    there are websites that allow you to 'piggyback' on their IP address to surf other websites. so if spcnet checks your IP, all they see is the proxy website IP address, not yours.
