So I got to thinking about having read somewhere that you are able to create multiple hubpage accounts and I was wondering if anyone actually uses more than one ID and if so what is it?
i have one other: SquigglesMcBeeBee
i don't use it very much but i want to do more with Squiggles.
You can set up more than one account and a few others have talked about it here, but is does dilute your followers and advantages of having one account with more hubs, etc.
If some using multiple identities or account here .They might have own more than 1 computer.
am i allowed to post a link? here it is:
(i hope i don't get dinged for that)
Squiggles is kind of a 'niche' persona. he writes about bunny rabbits.
I've wondered about that too.....if maybe there are several posters on here with multiple identities. But hey I dunno. Is it against the hubpages rules?
No it is not against the rules I was just trying to find out if anyone ever found it very useful to use multiple accounts.
Please point this out in the rules? HubPages team says, people can have more than one account.
It offers people the opportunity to dedicate one to a specific niche market, without any connection to their other work. This comes in handy should you want to write as someone else. There are many authors, who don't use their real-life names, on their work and it's not because they are worried about what others think of them. They simple use one literary tool "ghost writing" at their disposal.
Just a thought.
no, I hasn't. it sounds scary. I like The Runaway Bunny, The Velveteen Rabbit and The Tale of Peter Rabbit
Crazd- We are glad there is only one of you LOL you are truly unique.
Keith- I can see how it could do that.
Squiggles you should read it it is really agreat story.
hehe thanks Ohma...wait you wouldn't want to deal with more like me? lol just kidding.
Just a crazy thought ...
Do you think anyone with multiple identities ever leaves a comment on one of their own hubs?
I think you can have more than one id. here because of the message that comes up when you sign out. Also there might be more than one person in a house writing for HubPages so the same computer would be used.
I only have one identity but here is what you would see from my ip address.
AEvans that is me!!! The one and only me, nobody else not another human being they broke the mold. lololo
WhiteOrchids: My sister, right now her computer is down so she comes to our home to write,but she is not on often.
Glstngrosepetals: My sister's friend who stays with us also has an account with HP hopefully she will get on her feet SOON and move, but in the meantime she writes.
Honestly I will be happy when everyone detaches themselves from me, lololo. I would like to get back to normal and there is nothing like commenting on someone's hub and they think there is more then one of you. We have 3 computers and I am so kind to allow others to use two of them, however the laptop there is no way anyone will touch my golden keys! lololo
I could understand why someone would have multiple accounts.
Let's say someone wants to Hub about rating Death Metal albums.
They also want to present the poetry they have so much of their heart in.
The two subjects do not mix well and possible readers might be turned off.
Multiple accounts would seem to make sense if one is writing in completely isolated niches, for example say witchcraft and or Wicca practices for one and say, industrialism for the other. There does not seem to be much crossover.
But again than my hubs are all over the place, from Politics to the Holidays to Humor to Tourist info, under just one account.
So who is to say what’s best, I'm still trying to figure the whole thing out. I just keep experimenting.
Like Arthur says, it helps if you want to keep two sets of writing separate. I have one purely for SEO
I asked the team if I was allowed to post with more than one account and they said that wasn't allowed.
You can only have more than 1 account to publish hubs.
Im sure many people in and outside of HP have multiple accounts and personalities...
To each their own I guess ,personally I have trouble remembering what I did yesterday ,eaglekiwi is enough for me to handle lol
However I never say never
I guess one other reason is to help mask profitable niches for hubs. I.e. If a hubber stated in the forum that they are earning so much from their hubs and have hundreds of fans. People can see what hubs they have written and try to copy that niche area, where as if you have published your profitable hubs under a different identity with a lower profile it makes it harder for others to copy them.
believe it or not - This is my more serious identity - mega1 - even though it may not appear that I'm all that serious. My really comedic persona is SoftCornHippo who talks kinda funny and writes about girl stuff and funny thoughts she has. I haven't written much for SoftCorn lately, have concentrated on mega1 - I can see that if you are a pro writer having an outlet for your silly side that doesn't show up on your serious blogs is probably not a bad idea. So now you all know! This is the first time I've told you all about SoftCorn - hope you like her!
What puzzles me is that people who have been banned from the forums can go ahead and quite openly post to the forums under a different alias, even declaring who they are. Doesn't make sense to me, why does HubPages permit this. They should be able to stop it by going after the IP address and by using automated detection. Only relying upon users to complain is not effective. Does HubPages really want to keep these people out?
Oh when HP gets wind of this they get banned for another time period - some permanently. And if they keep it up they get banned from writing hubs and their account is closed - not just from participating in the forum.
It was already supposed to be permanent, that's why I don't quite get it. Maybe some members are just too valuable to actually let go?
The first forum ban is 3 days. It grows in increments to 30 days. A forum ban can progress into a full ban from HP with account being closed.
If you are a spammer with no hubs, I think it goes right to banned on all levels. If you've got a track record and just bliew it once, then I think they give you more chances. But there is a limit to chances.
I know who you're referring to and I wondered this myself. Seems that a ban is a ban, and rules are rules right? Or not, apparently.
Good information to know. Most folks are really good, but there is that one every so often...
HP has a large group of people that support all that come here. I avoid the ones that try to drag it down. If it is any consolation: it happens all over, even in the real world.
Read what Nellie posted , says it all really.
Personally I dont care who posts under what name, since I rely mostly on my own common sense
As usual I am out of the loop, so to speak. On the subject of hubbers being band I mean.
But having multiple ID's will not get you banned right?
Of course....the subtle profile first. Then there's the one that states what I REALLY wanna convey but don't wanna reveal the true identity. Simple.

I've always wondered why some Hubbers have more than one account. Is this a good thing or not? The only thing I can think of is that after a person writes many Hubs, it becomes a chore to take care of that...

I've noticed a few hubbers mention they have multiple HubPages accounts. Why? Is it helpful to have more than one account? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
