Welcome to Aush's Cantina! Named for one of the three original administrators of EUCantina, this is the general Star Wars Miscellaneous discussion area. The guidelines here are generally the same as anywhere else on the EUCantina, with a few little exceptions. Please be sure you are familiar with this area before posting.

* General forum etiquette is required. You should have read the EUCantina Board Guidelines/ FAQ by now. If not, please do so before posting here. All members are expected to adhere to general guidelines and rules.

* Post coherently. Use of a spellchecker is encouraged, and please try not to assault our eyes with hard-to-read colors, excessive exclamation points and an overabundance of dancing smiles. Unlock your caps button as well, for a much easier to read post. Please refrain from using obscene language in this area. While other areas of the forum may be a bit more lax, I personally prefer to keep the conversations in here free of unnecessary profanity.

* You may NOT post content that is harassing, abusive, or threatening towards any member of this forum. Racial slurs, sexual harassment, bashing of another member's race, gender, religious beliefs or sexual preferences will not be tolerated. Period.

* NO spamming!

* Trolling and sockpuppeting is frowned upon by the EuCantina moderators and admins. If you encounter a troll or a sockpuppet, don't feed them. It makes them not want to leave. It's best to ignore these poor attention-starved individuals, as they will be dealt with by staff. Instead, just contact a mod or admin and we'll take care of the problem immediately.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me or a staff member a private message. Unpleasantness out of the way, please enjoy yourselves here, at Aush's Cantina.

Trolls are those who post only to cause problems. They purposely post things to aggravate and incite arguments.

Sockpuppets, I believe, are users with multiple accounts. Generally multiple accounts so they can get away with spamming or trolling spread across the board. It allows them to continue causing problems even if one of their accounts is banned.

At least those are my understandings of the terms.

Yes.

A troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

A sockpuppet is an online identity used for purposes of deception. The term—a reference to the manipulation of a simple hand puppet made from a sock—originally referred to a false identity assumed by a member of an internet community who spoke to, or about himself while pretending to be another person. The term now includes other uses of misleading online identities, such as those created to praise, defend or support a third party or organization, or to circumvent a suspension or ban from a website. A significant difference between the use of a pseudonym and the creation of a sockpuppet is that the sockpuppet poses as an independent third-party unaffiliated with the puppeteer.

Can't MODS just identify puppets through their IP address?

It's possible but some people have static IPs, and others do not, so it may not be possible all the time.

You can also use any of a number of proxies to hide your IP. Trolls will do that although the less knowledgeable ones don't which trips them up if the staff is savvy enough to check the IPs.
