The creation of sockpuppets, i.e., multiple accounts per user, is discouraged on Wikitravel, because it obfuscates the identity of the contributor in contradiction with the general wiki principles of openness and transparency.

Nonetheless, Wikitravel does not enforce any rules regarding the creation of sockpuppets, opting instead to tolerate and ignore them. Since majority-rule voting is not employed on Wikitravel, sockpuppets do not present much difficulty to site processes.
