    We have had to deal with a few people lately who are trying to circumvent rejected validation accounts by making another account and trying again - this is not how the validation system works.

    First of all, let's have a look at the rules, and this one in particular:
    Secondly, the rules of the Validation Forum state that rejected applicants are advised to wait six months and try again. If you make another thread before that, you will be banned for six months. This includes duplicate accounts.

    So, if you end up being rejected, then clearly you didn't make a good impression on the staff, and so you need to wait a while before trying again. All users who have a case to make in the Validation Forum have access to approved and rejected forum threads, so it isn't hard to make a good case. We don't make it hard here.

    If you have waited six months, then you should be able to make a thread again. If you're having a problem with doing that (aka it's not letting you), then you can contact a member of staff about it.

    Anyone who makes alternate accounts for the purpose of dodging validation, limbo, etc will find both accounts being banned. This is not rocket science here - play by the rules or don't be here at all.
