Possibility of "Fake" author on my blog?

  1. Hi all,

    This may be a strange question, but here me out... :)

    I'm playing Lord of the Rings Online and have several characters there. Up until now I've posted the adventures of one characters as a letter, but I was wondering if it's possible to have the "characters" "post directly". In example: have an "author" in my blog named as one of my characters. Obviously this author wouldn't need to have a username (etc) since I'll be doing all the writing, but it would seem like the character wrote the piece.

    Is there a way to do this, besides making a bucketload of google account (yeah... I've got about 15 characters now...) and have them each as an author....

    Thanks for the help.

    I'm not sure if this topic should be in support or ideas, so I'll start in Support since perhaps there is already a way to do this.

    The blog I need help with is lotroadventures.wordpress.com.

  2. There IS a way, but it isn't reliable except in that it ALWAYS fails. My advice is to make new IDs. That lets you use gravatars for each, and the Author widget, and lets them comment back and forth on each others' posts, which really adds to the liveliness of the site.

  3. Okay, make new id's (and thus new google accounts, I think :grin: ). Isn't commenting on each others posts...... well, not illegal, but... "not done"?
    Thanks for your tips :)

  4. No, it's actually part of the fun. People get that Gimli has better things to do than blog all damn day, etc.

  5. Okay, that's an idea :) Thanks for the help, Raincoaster. You don't happen to play Lotro yourself, do you?
