    Any alternate account we find of a marked scammer gets tagged, cant say that anymore clearly. If you don't want the tag, you will have to appeal the original offense and win the appeal.

    Also, if you repost another locked topic, you wont be able to post in this section again.

    We have a variety of ways to identify alt accounts, but I will not specifically say them as not to be abused.

    If you have appealed in the proper format, you just need to wait until staff can deal with your appeal. They get a lot of appeals and they are expedited normally based on when they were submitted. These things cannot be rushed, since all must be properly investigated, so you must be patient and await an outcome.

    I think your question was covered, anyone who is fully tagged will have any ALT accounts they own, instantly tagged as soon as they are discovered. In this game a tag applies to the user, not to the account. If you are tagged and you own 20 ALTS, every one of them will be tagged as soon as they are verified as belonging to you.

    As Starburst noted, there are a number of ways that help discover and verify ALT accounts, none of which I am going to mention :)
