An account refers to a login with an associated username, userpage and user talk page. These may include anonymous accounts (also known as IP accounts, or informally "anon" accounts).
It is not strictly prohibited to have multiple accounts; only to abuse having multiple accounts. For example, bot owners must create a second bot-only account. Any user with more than one account should make this clear on their userpages to avoid confusion. Things that are not allowable include:
- Creating an account to evade a block (see WT:BLOCK)
- Using multiple accounts to influence discussions or votes
