    Today we have a pub quiz in the bar.

    The first question- can you summarise the discussion in the bar today in under 100 words?
    The second question- why should we care or be worried?
    The third question- please summarise the discussion in under 100 words.
    1. No
    2. We're the MHoC, it's our job to make a mountain out of a mole-hill
    3. Everyone still pissed off from not being allowed to use Skype, someone mentions Reddit MHoC, Reddit MHoC Speaker arrives, gets banned, everyone goes ballistic at "draconian" rule, Mod's don't help, but instead chuck diesel on the fire, all hell breaks lose. (How many was that?)

    There is a subreddit called Explain Like I'm Five and the whole thing would require a sole word: Madness.

    I have resorted to being a genuinely confused observer.

    We shouldn't, but it may be the end of the world depending on who you speak to.

    Edit: is this all just PRT (pre results...) for Thursday. Good luck by the way to anyone getting them!

    Sorry guys but you lost. You broke the rule that the response actually had to be longer than 100 words. It's not written anywhere but it exists, I promise.

    Basically we all (including the mods) started to sound a little bit like you on a bad day. :P

    Damn it, these pesky rules, they come out of nowhere, it's almost as if they are 'made up'.

    Go get something to drink, after doing so myself I have concluded that the only thing 'I t' (whatever the hell it is) can be is a giant alien lizard conspiracy to muck with us. As I said Logic.

    No, of course not, they're just helpfully not written anywhere before you get perma-banned for breaking them

    I am not even sure whether to get offended. :laugh: It suddenly seems like the best option would be to sod the conflicts, sod cross-party squabbles, let men be boys in their voyage after imaginary power, and just focus on the interesting debates. Yawn…

    I would like you to.

    That's another way to boost activity. Everyone loves intelligence reports.

    The part where you said you enforced TSR rules and that multiple accounts wasn't against said rules.
    Misuse of duplicate accounts is against the rules. Having a dupe is not. I have 4.

    I'll just say that I actually agree with the mods here so the phrase everybody is overused.

    That emoticon was supposed to be the much more friendly '' emoticon lol

    I'd say the cross-party squabbles are an integral part in interesting debates but besides that you may be onto something.

    Am I blacking out or have you redacted the juicy bits?

    So the cards have been given and we can move on from this drama?

    Obviously the unredacted version is Top Secret.

    Yes they have.

    The final black box on the first paragraph doesn't fully cover the word. After zooming in it's clear to see the last letter is an 'f'. The same is true for the only box on the second paragraph but it looks more like an 'l' in that one. It narrows down who it could be a bit.

    Do not misuse secondary accounts.

    1. You are welcome to create and operate multiple accounts on The Student Room, so long as you continue to follow the guidelines.
    2. If you have an account banned, you may use another account to browse the site and/or to post in the Moderation Queries forums to ask about the reasons for your ban. However, any other use of the account - including posting, sending private messages, leaving visitor messages or use of the reputation system is not permitted.
    3. Do not use another account to back up the opinion that you post using one account or otherwise to deceive/mislead others. Do not impersonate other members.
    4. Do not use another account to abuse the reputation system, eg, by attempting to get around the usual restrictions on the frequency of leaving reputation/post ratings.

    That is the actual wording in the T&C, from what I see is that this does not determine which is the primary or secondary account, but if one account gets banned then they cannot post with any other account, therefore if the original account that apparently exists has posted since the dupe was banned that account too should be banned as it is against the rules. Or have I read wrong. Sorry if you are the guy who is also the reddit speaker, but it had to be done.

    The primary account is the one that came first. If the dupe breaks the rules, it gets banned. We issue a warning to the primary account and they can continue posting as normal, unless the rule violation was for something we'd normally ban for, like posting porn, for instance.

    Probably best for this thread to be closed for a bit until things are sorted out.
