Pi1415926535 is a legitimate alternative account of User:Pi.1415926535. Please comment on my main talk page (autoredirected from this talk page).
It serves several purposes:
- Doppelganger account: The two usernames are extremely similar, differing by only a period. This way, no one can create an account with a username almost identical to my established account, either accidentally or maliciously.
- Unsecure terminals: I don't trust some public computers with my password to my main account. This way, I can log on safely without risking my main account.
- Image uploads: I frequently do technical modifications (exposure correction, removing watermarks, etc) on other peoples's images. I will upload them under this username to preserve my main image list for my own images. Any potentially controversial uploads will be under my main account. Additionally, as of June 2014 I am performing flickr uploads under this username.
