Anything to declare?

The use of alternate accounts is controversial, with discussion on Wikipedia talk:Sock puppetry suggesting people declare their alternate accounts (not doppelgänger accounts).

Some users declare their alternate accounts openly. These are used within policy, and for completely legitimate reasons, not abusively, not to gain the upper hand in disputes etc.

There are completely legitimate reasons to have alternate accounts, such as:

If you have alternate accounts, declare them now. If you have to, then declare them to a member of the Arbitration Committee or via OTRS.

It is much better to declare if you have alternate accounts, e.g. for Wikipedia:Requests for adminship and the Arbitration Committee elections.
