If you don't know what this poll is about, it's probably because you haven't read *i's post about halfway through this page yet. I couldn't let that question go unanswered, and I think we have to count all the Aloraels as only one. If they post as one, they vote as one.

Interestingly enough, it seems more people see both Drakey and Stareye as the bad cop than the good cop.

The results are currently *exactly the same* for Drakey and *i. This is horribly portentous. Obviously, the stars will soon be right for a *iDrakeythullu beast to rise and consume the world. There's only one way to escape. You have to get a totally random custom title *first*!

Since we are near a supermajority in votes for 'interchangeable', the democratic thing to do is have Drakeye and Starfyre officially merge.

Actually we could promote the formation of factions (and wouldn't that be great!) by instituting collective accounts, sort of like fraternities. Several people could all be given the password for one account, or one password-holding spokesposter could agree only to post messages to which all collective members had agreed by PM. General Spidweb members might be invited to join a collective account if they were found to espouse compatible views. The postings from large or prestigious collective accounts would be received with great respect by the rest of the community, of course. And membership in certain elite collectives would be more coveted than the sometimes dubious honor of a custom title.

Ah, what a dreadful, horrible plan. But there is an obvious place for it to be implemented ...

EDIT: My post number appears to be a commentary from the mysterious hierarchs.

Oh, so an unoffical merge isn't good enough? :P

One of the new accounts, Lentar Labs, was actually two people. Or so Lentar Labs claimed...

Dikiyoba thinks that merging would be completely horrible because of what it would do to post counts. Two people could post twice as much as one. But the top poster would probably be a singleton every month.

The Tims. Now that would have been fun to see. Or completely retarded, I can't be sure since I wasn't around then. I was wondering, is there a chance I could study the Collective somewhere? Are the topics still stored? Aran?

There is nothing in the CoC against sharing an account, but problems might arise with double posting.

Yes... it would help if there were alternative font colors, but I suppose we can't have everything.

EDIT: No, unfortunately we cannot.

No bump, though, and I tend to rely on the "last post" feature to see if a thread has been updated. It took about a week for me to notice a new IC post in Mountain of Shadows that had been edited into the last post.
