Everything done, thanks everybody.

Why are people so petty and sad... (referring to massive list of score trolls).

Check the first two's watching lists - the accounts' stats aren't updated.
No ratings, but obviously ... not right.

User affecting polls to his favor by using additional dummy accounts:

http://myanimelist.net/profile/irkan -> main account
http://myanimelist.net/profile/irkanraf -> secondary account (no stats, used for poll bumping)

?

A quote from the first post in this thread:
"What is an illegitimate account? An account that is a:

* duplicate account used to boost/drop ratings, sway votes in club contests or for other disrupting purposes"

Isn't that it? :)

He/she uses this account for trolling. The user of this one is very active. I think he/she have multiple accounts.

In any any case, I'm not removing either one of the previous accounts, they're borderline but not really malicious. We don't have a strict no extra accounts policy, we just ask that people don't go crazy with it and don't try to game the system, which these accounts don't appear to be doing.

yeah that's my other account that uses my personal scoring system instead of the MAL ones since, as kuroshiroi points said, there is no strictly no-extra account policy. I also use it as a way of tracking various things that would bloat up my main account too much if I tracked it all on there.

Regarding kajia I don't understand why it's okay to have two accounts which overlap by having two votes for the same thing(s) from the same person (I understand scenarios like having one account for normal stuff and another for hentai, for example), even if the votes aren't extreme or gaming the system much, and I imagine many others think the same. Can this be explained, please?

If you're stingy then click on CLuClu!
Please consider supporting the end of disenfranchisement on MAL.
Purpose is subjective, therefore quality is subjective.

Because we're not out to kill every single duplicate account, we're only trying to prevent certain people from making dozens of accounts to significantly affect the scores.

In a perfect world, everybody would only have one account but as you said, people might need other accounts for hentai or people might make new accounts when they forget the password to their account. I don't think it's practical to enforce this as strictly as you might like and I don't think it matters enough.

We're only trying to eliminate trolls, not people who, for whatever reason, might need 2 or even 3 accounts, as long as the accounts not malicious.

People need accounts for hentai?
Ok, ok, I'll stop picking on those guys for now.
But i disagree about only eliminating trolls and not empty accounts.
How about empty accounts with names like Jewishcuntrag.

I'd like to report this account as illegitimate. It is mine, I lost the password to it, and I cannot remember why I created it in the first place.

...because I haven't and can't sign in to it, it is lingering there and is redundant; illegitimate. Please delete.

Thank you in advance.

@Metty: Not removing offensively named accounts, it's enough to ban them.

@pluvia33: Done.

@Auchnique: You can't prove it's your account so I'm not touching it.
