I was just looking at two new members profiles and noticed something looking might strange...

Join date, last activity, date of birth, and age are all similar. Not to mention the screen names are also both pretty close to eachother. Seems like they're using MAVERICK 2007 though since that name already has 2 posts.

I believe it may be an odd coincidence.

YEAH RIGHT!
This person is obviously changing their name because of Maverick!
Or they *need* two.

I think the mods need to think about this.

As long as he only uses one of the names I think It is fine. He can't go back and fourth between the s/ns.

^Actually, it's not OK. One would have to go.

Wildefyre, I looked through our member database and could not find a "Cedar Fair 2007." If you're certain about that S/N, then someone must have already taken care of it.

And if you were wondering what the TOS has to say about it:

http://thrillnetwork.com/tos.php/messageboards

5) Usernames

a) Creating Multiple Usernames - Members are limited to one account on ThrillNetwork per person. Creating an additional username if you are banned, on probation, warnings or other restrictions, is considered an evasion of these ToS and a swift and stricter punishment will be placed, including the option that we may contact your ISP.

One is stuck in a mode where he/she has to confirm their email (pretty much they entered an invalid email during registration -- hence one of the several reasons why we require an ACTIVE email address). The other was registered when they realized they couldn't post without activating, and likely didn't know how to change their email so they can activate their account.

Unless we see both in use, then we don't do anything with it, and thus consider Cedar Fair 2007 to be abandoned.

The last statement that Steven said is what I said.
