Please can someone post the link to the guidelines against having two screen names? I have searched but cannot find it anywhere. TIA.
Is it now permitted to have multiple screen names?
I could not find anything about this at all in the Help Centre, though the advice on how to get accounts merged is still there.
Perhaps contact TA Staff and ask them?
Please report back if you do, because I want to know, too.Edited: 13 May 2018, 22:38
I have asked but no response (yet) I know it used to be there but maybe it's been removed, possibly since the facebook sign in thingy. Sorry I don't do facebook! :-))
There has recently been a multiple personality disrupting the UK and France (and Germany & Belgium) forums with silly threads and rude comments.
Got banned in it's 3 original guises then came back yesterday with 3 more guises. IMO this definitely should not be allowed.
However there is a sweet 80+ year old travelling for a reunion who is not too "tech savvy" and has managed somehow to make 2 profiles. This one needs all the help and support he can get!
I’m thinking it may have been part of a multi faceted rule that got pruned out in the last purge without anyone realising it was part of the rule, since they still have the advice about how to combine multiple accounts.
Agree there is a big difference between intentionally creating another profile to deceive or disrupt and being like me, tech-useless.
However 'Multiple screen names' still appears in the drop down menu for reporting inappropriate content, so I assume in breach of guidelines. I just can't find it.Edited: 13 May 2018, 23:13
The closest that I can find is a Help Centre page "How do I combine my two TripAdvisor accounts?"
There is still a report function for multiple screen names
Thanks for that RT, I still can't find anything, appreciate all replies and the time taken.
You're Welcome !
