do you just make an alt for every year... or do you have even more?
I currently have 8 "year alts." SS2001alt, _real_SS2002alt (because someone imp'd me with SS2002alt), SS2003alt, SS2004alt, SS2005alt, SS2006alt, SS2007alt, and SS2008alt.
I use SS2003alt through SS2006alt to track topics such as this one, based on their current purge rates. I can transfer them to another alt when needed.
I originally made SS2003alt through SS2005alt so that I wouldn't run out of alts to use during The Famous Five Hundred, but aside from the purposes of extra posting, alts are just fun.
I do have other alts that do not follow that pattern. In fact, SS2003alt is actually the 6th alt I created.
TheDedicated500 is my most famous alt (although still not that famous). I also gave it 2 alts, TD500s_alt and TD500s_alts_alt, just for fun. Then I created Post_in_the_500 which sort of goes along with it.
I have SSSemprini and Semprini_Subway because Semprini is one of the communities I am a part of (it's a special board - Board 709). I created _SS_ to "claim" the initials SS when someone else on the same board was nicknaming one of his alts SS.
I recently (less than hour ago) created SuperStalker2k2 because I have a reputation for seeming like a creepy stalker.
So that's 17 alts total.
how do you make an alt... is it just the fact that your logining in with a diff email
Yes, use a different email, and make it just as if you were making your first account. Don't make more than 3 alts within a 48 hour time period though. The site doesn't like that.
