    Welcome, LadyLurker! :)

    That does seem the most likely answer, yes. Moderators are able to see your IP address, and they are able to check if any other usernames are also associated with that IP. And since many people here have several accounts, it is usually assumed that one IP address equals one person. Of course there are exceptions - family members sharing the same internet connections, for example. But more often than not, a new account with an already familiar IP address means that somebody got themselves another "sock", as we call them. I think you were simply caught up in a little mix-up. :)

    Morgaine is right and I'm glad that you sent me a PM, so we could clear up everything. :)

    (And if you have more questions, don't hesitate to ask here in WNU or to pm me or any other moderator. :) )

    We should have a "sock hop" social for socks. I'm so socktastic that I abandoned my original 00 account for my 03 one and am 2 girls on here, as well. My name is Legion, for we are many.

    Hello again, boys and girls, and yes, my cover has been blown. I am a sock. You'll never know whose, though. I am a long-time member, and the other day, I thought I'd see if this name was available, and sure enough, no one had taken it yet. I just had to have it! :cool:

    Do we win all of the internets if we guess you're identity?

    You are the Internets, silly. What kind of a prize is that? :p

    Is it.... Darth Relaxus? :p

    Since I'm here, my other two socks are @Lady_Viscretus , and @Admiral_Volshe

    Yes, the last one was originally to confuse people. :p
    (Actually it's my mobile sock).

    Jedi Mickey - in the combination with that icon - is one of the coolest sock names I've seen around! :cool:

    I can't remember my password on my original user account (and I don't remember my old e-mail address anyways) so I guess I could be classified as a sock even though I hadn't been here in a long time [face_batting]

    Here's what is says about sock accounts in the JCF "FAQ" thread :

    What is a sock?
    A sock is an alternative username. Each member has a primary account. this need not be the first account you registered, although in many cases it is, but merely the account which you use the most often. Any other usernames you register are considered socks. A sock can be used in many manners. Some people use socks for anonymity, while others use them for fun and are very upfront about who they are. It is important to remember, though, that any bad actions performed by your sock will be noted on your primary account and you will be held responsible. So please use your socks responsibly.

    Did sock accounts used to be allowed to have colors?

    Maybe if you've thought of a better user name or something, or if you just want to have a bit of fun!
