    As just raised in the Help Desk we have a new member with two posts who is listed as a moderator. I just checked in the control panel and she is indeed part of the moderators group, what's going on?

    Perhaps there is a glitch based on whose dual that is...

    Look at their e-mail address.

    Ah, I see... but this raises a more interesting point in exactly how that happened... the board is set to disallow multiple registrations from the same email address.

    I had a look at the profile screen when I first say rredstar was listed as a mod but didn't recognise anything, who is it?

    We have no comment at this time since it deals with a user's real life identity.

    :lol:

    Nope. I have more than enough to do with this ID, thanks. I only use duals for specific reasons and even then extremely rarely.

    O2C...I haven't checked yet, but I don't think the e-mail is the same..but the name on this one makes the identity obvious if you know who it is.

    After realising who it is I can say fair enough, but that also there is no more personal information in the dual accounts profile than in the "real" members profile.

    This is all true. I was just reminding everyone that this thread will be released without edit, so we'd best be careful.

    Ah, fair enough.

    So is confidentiality being given to this dual?

    I could be mistaken, but I believe this is a real person. They just used the other person's computer to register. See the thread in The Green Room.

    Oh for the love of God, can we drop the cloak-and-dagger nonsense?

    It doesn't matter anyway.

    Until rredstar does something against the rules or it becomes questionable if it is a dual created for rep war purposes it simply isn't an issue and since they don't have shelter access anymore there is really nothing more to discuss.
