I can't log in to my wiki account. I use the password from this site, but it doesn't work‏. I never used the wiki account before‏.

Are you 100% sure that you typed everything in correctly? User name and password? Please double check.

Strange... I didn't change anything on this recently. Anyone having the same problem? I can login but I logged in before so this may be the difference.

Might be possible. You can try it. However I already checked the copy of the user database for the wiki (which is automatically generated by a wikimedia plugin for login) and I can't find your nick in there.

Finally i got it. Before Wolf Soft I have account Swordmen ( later we rename it on Wolf _Soft /I dont remember now.../ ). With this user name it works.

Glad to hear that it works. It's just kinda problematic that you just admitted to have at least two accounts which is clearly strictly forbidden. Which of those do you want me to ban?

It's kinda problematic how you notice this on a user who rarely says anything at all, but when it's others who are a lot more annoying (and even use hacks), you don't care.
I don't mean to mock, but this is the truth.

@user Rainoth: Unfortunately you are comparing COMPLETELY different situations here.

Situation A: A user admits himself in the forum that he owns two accounts in the very same forum. This is an obvious case.

Situation B: A user has multiple accounts but doesn't say anything about that. Hard to track. At least for me. Maybe not so hard for some of you. And still if detected they could claim to be siblings or sharing connections... quite problematic thing. Far away from being obvious or a safe ban which is guaranteed to be justified.

Situation C: Someone cheats. We don't even have to talk about this because you would have to show me a reliable proof (as I don't want to ban innocent people and there already have been people who claimed that others cheated just to get rid of them) which is technically impossible.

I know that it's not fair but I prefer not to ban people when my alternative would be to risk to ban innocent people. I still have to care about the rules though and when someone admits that he has multiple accounts.. well.. then I'm forced to act because otherwise nobody would take the rules seriously (assuming that anyone does...).

And yes, maybe I don't really care anymore as well because every banned account brings like 100 new multi accounts and I know that I'll never be able to stop them all and that caring about them is basically a waste of time unless they are causing real problems.

@user DC: Well you told everyone that you can't stop players with multi-accounts(Now they are free to make as much accounts they want to).Also my brother wanted to delete his account and he can't so that is also a porblem of useless accounts.
Maths is the most magical place where you buy 70 watermelons and no one cares about it.

@user Wolf_Soft: Okay, I banned that account. You can still use it in the Wiki though.

@user H-X: I'm aware of this but I decided that it really doesn't make much difference. But note that I still ban multi accounts sometimes when I'm bored because I really hate everyone who blindly creates multiple accounts for no good reason.

Account removal is not required. Dead accounts cause no problem. People can use them again when they return. This doesn't have to lead to multi accounts. Unless people behave like shit and want a new account which is something I don't support. You can't simply get a new life in real life either whenever you screw something up. So keep using your account instead of creating (a) new one(s).

Now please no more posts on this off-topic discussion!
