    My dear little Wilhuff[face_love] loved hazelnut spread. I used to put it on his toast every morning when he was just a little Wilhuff-snapper!

    The remaining Nutella will be hunted down and eaten...for a safe and secure sock thread. [face_skull][face_pumpkin]

    Nowhere is safe from the darkness unless I say so.

    Is there a limit to the number of socks?

    @Victoria Skywalker, nope there's not a number limit of socks. The only things you need to keep in mind is that you need a new email adress for each sock and that the socks have to behave as well (if not, it will be noted to your main account). :)

    @Victoria Skywalker, you're welcome. And it's not a late reply. Late would be a reply after a month or so. ;) You don't need to be here daily, although I bet you will be at that regularity very soon. ;) :D

    Hi, it's me, Cowgirl, checking out my new socks.

    I only made one extra account, but I call it "socks", because one sock without the other one is useless, unless you're making a sock puppet.

    And I promise you, @Cowgirl's Socks will be very well behaved! :)

    Never seen an account that is cool with alt accounts before. It's, interesting. May I ask how the tradition got started?

    This is not a sock, but I heard it was misplaced sock day.

    This thread goes back awhile, before I joined but I suspect that since we generally accept socks (i.e., alt accounts) except where the primary user account is banned, we might as well have a thread that welcomes them.

    @Skiara Do you know any other history on this.

    In the very beginning it was decided that sock-accounts are ok - unless it's against the ToS (like being banned on the main one or talking to oneself using socks or so). In the old times it was a big fun to create socks, many many socks, and to use them. Some had so many that mods stopped counting. Some socks were similar at one point or had a certain line in the signature, so other user had a chance to find out who it is originally. It was fun! Similar to the "challenge" to post as many edits as possible within the edit time with a real conversation going on with it. I've watched it in FanForce Community. :D

    Since all are equal and so are socks (said with a ;) ), they got allowed their own welcome thread. But solely one! Because in WNU it's not allowed to create various welcome threads - neither with the main account nor with socks. The reason for this is, that it's not fair to old user to pretend to be a new member and possibly needing help, while being experienced already. Exception: If a user disappeared a long time and comes back, then it can be fine to post an 'welcome back' thread. :)

    That's the history behind this thread. :)

    Any questions?

    Why that's when all the socks get dusted off around here (in anticipation of Halloween.............[face_pumpkin][face_pumpkin][face_pumpkin] )

    And, by the way, that's a lovely Halloween avatar and username you have there!
