I did not tell my friends I was Peripheral.

Previously here at ADDForums I had a different account.

But for reasons I would rather not discuss, I asked to have that old account be permanently suspended.

After my old account was suspended, I started this new account with a profile name "mildadhd", but I did not tell moderators/friends here at ADDForums that I was formally known as the member with the profile name "Peripheral".

I wanted to tell moderators/friends, but I did not want to make anyone accomplices.

I will accept whatever my punishment.

Re: I did not tell my friends I was Peripheral.

You asked for the account to be suspended. You decided to come back. I'm not a moderator but that seems like an okay thing to do. It's not like you had two active accounts at the same time.

I doubt there was anyone who didn't know that you are peripheral.

Re: I did not tell my friends I was Peripheral.

I knew immediately it was you by your writing style.

I don't know why any one would an accomplice, has there been any crimes?

Re: I did not tell my friends I was Peripheral.

I believe you've done this more than once. Although I don't know if the mods or admins knew each time.

No.

I can now honestly say with a clear conscious, that the moderators and administrators know every stupid intentionally misleading thing I have done.

Funny that you knew.

Re: I did not tell my friends I was Peripheral.

mild, even I knew you were peripheral and I'm probably the dimmest bulb in not just the box but the whole shop

It never worried me I can't speak for anyone else here but personally I just want you to feel okay/good about yourself

You deserve it

Re: I did not tell my friends I was Peripheral.

And for the record the only "punishment" (to use the word you used) imo that you deserve is loads of s

for being you

Re: I did not tell my friends I was Peripheral.

I see it as more of a wardrobe change than anything else. Your writing style and energetic presence remain very much the same. Not sure why you felt it was necessary, but that's really no ones business but yours. Glad you chose to remain, regardless of the name.

Re: I did not tell my friends I was Peripheral.

Mild,
I didn't understand your post at first but now I do. Thank you for your honesty!

The staff has known for quite a while if that helps any. You aren't going to be punished or need to be concerned about it. If that was the case, we would have discussed this a long time ago.

Cheers to you for confessing!

*** Ok, I have to put on my Mod. hat and just clarify to all our readers that we do not condone or allow multiple accounts. My post above sounds like we do and I am sorry. That's why, I wanted to explain.

Having multiple accounts is a violation and you can be penalized. This account was suspended only per the user's request. Multiple accounts were not being used and the merging or deleting of one account was just an oversight on both of our parts.

Using multiple identities is deceitful and that is what we are trying to avoid. We have several ways of determining if a user has multiple active ID's like checking IP addresses etc. and that was not the case in this situation.

Sorry for my usual confusion. I hope this helps.

Cheers

Re: I did not tell my friends I was Peripheral.

I think it's important in this case that though mildadhd/peripheral/(also geronimoo bach-y-rita? Any others?) didn't outright mention the changes of name, I think they were held one at a time without trying to hide anything.

I am not certain what you are getting at? Admin. may occasionally change a members username but only at the members request and justification. You convince Andi or Andrew that you have justified reasons for requesting a username change or they will not grant it.

It's their call and they take it seriously and aren't in the habit of haphazardly granting requests, I assure you.

There are valid reasons why this members ID has changed several times. It also not expected for a user to divulge a past ID.
