Use of Aliases/Fake Identities

Posted by Senior Staff [2:27 pm] (link)

This is a update of for the General category.

For some time now, TFL has had concerns about applicants using ‘alias’ identities, submitting false information, and using other people’s URLs to apply for fanlistings. We feel that they do this because of fears of ‘staff bias’ towards them, or they have a large number of fanlistings (or fanlistings on troubles or upcoming) and this will enable them to get more fanlistings.

We are aware of several cases and have followed these up with the owners. However, we feel our concerns on this need to be made known to you.

If an owner is found to be using multiple aliases or another person’s information on their applications, their alias identity’s fanlistings may be unlisted from TFL. Repeated use may result in a temporary or permanent ban from TFL.

In order to avoid this situation, please stick to one name and e-mail address and only submit your own URL when applying for fanlistings at TFL. If you need to update your e-mail addresses, please send in an E-mail Change request form, and we will update those addresses as soon as possible.

We feel that submitting false information is unfair to other visitors and applicants and it is something that needs to be taken seriously (especially the use of another person’s URL or name). In all circumstances where this happens, action will be taken.

Did You Know?

If you want your fanlisting to be listed in multiple categories (and it isn't already listed), then send in a fanlisting application form to each category. In the comments box on your application forms, please note that you are applying to cross-list your fanlisting in another category (include the category's name). Please keep in mind that you are not guaranteed approval in all categories.
