Creating multiple users with the same email

I’m working on a discourse project that needs a bot account to create topics. The plan is to use a free site-to-RSS service to look for changes in another site and use the Discourse RSS plugin to create the topics.

If I decide I want different bot accounts (eg “site1bot”, “site2bot”, etc), would I need to furnish each account with a unique email? Is there a way to have multiple accounts using the same email?Can I assign them a bogus email address on my domain (eg “”) and bypass the email authentication as an admin?

Not sure about same email as that might create conflicts if logging in.

But yes you can definitely use bogus email addresses… Just goto the Bot user profile as Admin/mod and manually activate the account.

I did this for a test user as once you have been admin/mod for a time you forget what a regular user sees and changes one makes may work for an elevated account but not a norm.
