Sockpuppets shouldn't be confused with having multiple accounts. You are allowed to have more than one account on Fandom, so long as they are not used to cause disruption or deceive users. Some communities may have specific policies related to multiple accounts, so it is important to check local community account policies.
If it is found that a user is abusing multiple accounts to cause trouble, those accounts may be blocked by staff, depending on how severe the event is. All questions regarding account information must be submitted to Special:Contact.
