How does one get in touch with a mod to identify a potential sockpuppet?

When you compose an rMail there is an option to send that message to the mods.

New term for my books!  Thank you.

I just send the Admin moderators an Rmail as Nauthiz stated above and give them the names you suspect.  It is private between you and the Admin and they will be happy to check it out.

I have mixed feelings about this... But i understand  why the rule exists .

in my space game, abut? 8 years or so ago, i had a  really good player, he added alot to the game..and was starting his own, that i joined to help get him started. He, like many who leave my game and start their own, used alot of my concepts.

anyway..i received  a Rmail from Admins, saying that player had to be removed form my game,because of  duel accounts or something alone that line... i didn't want to do it, but then they explained   that i would be shut down as well...so?... I removed him, his game was struck after an announcement of why, so players  could save info ect ect...

I never have trouble, getting rid of players who become a problem... i hated letting a good player go....In the  end? Its like i say about  football...You know the rules.

as a sidebar, i have looked through  the   lost Souls thread a few times a month, to see if  'ghost' players   had been  cut...i have seen people whose actions  and  comments should have got them  bounced  right away.

That's one of the things that keep the site strong, is the weeding out of head cases, sadly, some  'good folks" get caught up  as well.
