Most people think that having an older account gives them more credibility and they are safer.
I have been on the OT community for over 10 years and been reading on Otland for way too long.
But I didn't mind in creating a new account instead of acquiring an old one because I am just getting help and trying to help others.
But if you are going to host servers, get a job, etc. Like I said, the vast majority of people will trust easier a 2009 account than a 2018.
I've just had my account for a long time. I'd mess with OT then stop, come back and stop, come back and stop. I did a lot of reading and not a lot of posting. But I always returned to my original account. I created it when I was 18, I'm almost 30 now lol.
As Kodak said. Mine was created in 2008. Many people view stuff on otland and have played ots for 10+ years/developed ots and have never liked or sent a message.
Tibia is a nostalgic game thats an addiction. You look/come/stop playing many times over the course of a decade or 2! However, we all come back to tibia....
Otland is a very troll encouraged place so lots view but don't participate in the conversations.
They created the accounts, forgot their passwords, emails etc. The accounts were left, they created a new one.
Some created accounts just to leech free stuff back in the day, or to just read the forum.
There's no specific reason. These things happen with almost every website, I can assure you.
