Sockpuppetry is when a person creates alternative or multiple user accounts for the purposes of violating the rules of this wiki or Miraheze so that the actions won't be traced back to you or to circumvent a ban. If you have been suspected of sockpuppetry, all accounts which are associated with you will be banned, and we will contact a Miraheze steward in order to block your IP address from creating additional accounts.

However, if you would like to create an account if your old account has been banned for an indefinite period of time, you might be allowed to do so under the condition that it is not in the purpose of evading a block and continuing the offending behavior.


If your account or IP address has been banned, you can still access information on this wiki. However, you will be disabled from editing or uploading files to this wiki, and sometimes for unregistered users creating an account. You should still be able to edit your talk page in most cases in order to appeal against your ban. Being banned from the wiki is the result of violating wiki policy or Miraheze's gobal policies.

Locally, a wiki administrator has the right to apply and remove bans from users, as well as setting the length of time the ban should last. Bans can also be applied by Miraheze stewards which have global user right across all wikis. It can last from a short or long finite period of time or set indefinitely.

If you want to appeal your ban, you may do so in your own talk page requesting that your ban to be shorted or removed on the condition that you will follow the conventions of this wiki and Miraheze's. However, the decision to unban you will be on the administrators' own discretion.
