I made an account "random guest" but now that account can't use the site at all for some reason. So I made a new account "kongzilla" under another email address. Now I can use the site again. If I am only allowed one account that's fine. I only want one account. But one that works!

What happened?

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

I have no insight into what killed "random guest," but I can confirm for you that you can have as many accounts as you wish. (As long as you don't rate the same game more than once across your accounts.)

And as long as you don't use a 2nd (or 3rd) account to get around your 1st account being suspended for some reason.

There are actually some other prohibited interactions/uses of additional accounts, but very, very few regular users should need to be aware of them.

And don't use them for sockpuppetry trolling, and so on. Basically if you want multiple accounts for some reason, don't use them for obviously jerky stuff.

The main non-sleazy reason I usually read for wanting 2 accounts is that some people donate to the site through a secondary account since they don't want patron badges on their "main" account's avatar.
