Sock puppet brandon

Sockpuppet is a term used to refer to a someone who has created another account to cause a problem on a community. This may be to:

  • Avoid a block or ban
  • Post vandalism
  • Harass another user
  • Create drama

Multiple accounts are allowed on FANDOM, but they should not be used to deceive other users. Local communities may have specific policies related to multiple accounts, so it is important to check local community account policies.

If it is found that a user is abusing multiple accounts to cause trouble, those accounts may be closed by staff. All questions regarding account information must be submitted to Special:Contact.
