[edit] Multiple accounts

Hi there. Would I be right in thinking that both "Basile II" and "HBaratte" are also you? It is highly unusual for someone to have two accounts, never mind three. Wikipedia says about this:

The use of multiple Wikipedia user accounts for an improper purpose is called sock puppetry (often abbreviated in discussion as socking). Wikipedia editors are generally expected to edit using only one (preferably registered) account. Using a single account maintains editing continuity, improves accountability, and increases community trust, which helps to build long-term stability for the encyclopedia.

I'm not sure why you've now created a third account. But is it possible you could use only one account so admins, like myself, are able to follow your edits? --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 09:05, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Hello Mith. Yes, you are right! I understand that it is unusual to have two or three accounts. Please excuse me! I wanted to create a new account but I don't know how to delete the others. I choose "Basile III" as my account so, if you can delete the two others, I shall thank you. Is it OK? Basile III 22:18, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
That's fine but we don't have the ability to delete accounts. So if you just this one from now on, that should be fine. --Mith (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 11:18, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes, no problem! Please, say to me, do I have this ability to delete my two other accounts, because I have the will to do it? Basile III 22:42, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
