List of duplicate accounts

Postby BadCosmonaut » Thu Aug 09, 2018 11:50 pm

What is a duplicate account?

- an account that is a copy of another account.
- two accounts that are both sourced from the same individual's ratings elsewhere.

Example 1: a user abandons his old account after importing his ratings to a new account (they don't have to have the exact same scores as people can change some of their scores over time).

Example 2: if there are two accounts for a famous critic like Robert Ebert, then both could be listed here; if there is just one Robert Ebert account, then neither would be on this list.

Note that I don't think there is anything wrong with duplicate accounts (I've made duplicate accounts myself before for testing purposes, but I later deleted the duplicates). The purpose of the list is for any reason that anyone would want to use such a list. I'll add more if I find them. Feel free to list more in the comments below.

Below is a list of known duplicate accounts (last updated 2018 8 9):

bentien
dbentien

glm
glm01

MVSCH
MVSCH2

tipar
tipar822

vladimirov75

Multiple accounts that collect one individual's ratings:

R Ebert
roger-ebert
Roger_Ebert
rogerebert

Accounts that look like duplicates, but probably aren't:

NRM01
NRM02
NRM03

Including these here to avoid false reports, and so I remember that I've already checked them out.
