Salve a tutti!
Ero curiosa di sapere se nessun altro ha notato nella lista ranking un certo numero di usernames molto simili tra loro? Non riesco a capire che divertimento ci sia a sottoporre le soluzioni per gli stessi puzzles sotto differenti nomi solo per occupare piu' posti in classifica.
Ciao [smile]

Hello Patrick,
I only noticed some (6) very similar usernames at the bottom of the rankings. They start with C , different combinations of two names and the numbers 9 2 4 and 5 7 . We all like puzzles... some people puzzle me! [wink]
Thank you for reply to my post.

Yes, I saw those too.

I recently deleted about 20 of them, but they keep coming in, almost all of them with fake email addresses
(so I also get loads of bounce messages [sad] )

I tried emailing this user (using a seemingly valid email address), but no reply..

Only remaining option would be a custom message when such a name is seen at signup :-|

Thanks Patrick, and sorry for your trouble.
I guess somebody likes to see their name written on the rankings more than once! [rolleyes]

Yes, not sure what the reason is.

Maybe they're having trouble logging in. But then, why sign up in the first place..

As a non speaker of Italian, thank you for the shift to English. I hope there are not too many Italian speaking non speakers of English who read the forum.

Very interesting observation by nicla14 regarding the names. They appear to metastasize as fast as Patrick can resect them. By my count just now there appear to be eleven.

"As a non speaker of Italian, thank you for the shift to English. I hope there are not too many Italian speaking non speakers of English who read the forum."

Dear sjs34

Italian is a beautiful language but is used less often. I'm sure lots of Italians understand English since is the language most used in the European Union.
I like the idea of an Italian Forum... I don't have many opportunities to speak my native tongue and I'm sorry I did not continue my post in Italian.
Chiedo scusa per non aver continuato in Italiano, vivo negli USA ed e' stata... forza di abitudine!
Ciao a tutti [smile]
