    In the admin.php section there's a tab for users, you can create new users from there.

  3. Why do you want to fake it? What happens if someone tries to communicate to one of your faked users?

    Please, these plugs are so often used in pissing contests betwen different forums. Instead, try to attract members by creating an interresting forum, that people would like to go to.

    I would try to answer even I'm not the thread starter or that I use this option, but could use such a feature.

    I have a forum for disabled people. People are very timid, shy and reticent. It is very difficult to get any action from them, even register, if they can not be motivated by fx many users, a lot of info in forums, where they can feel safe and 'hidden' them self. None of them starts anything by themself, be the first and be constantly motivated started with some posts by them self.

    I try the best I have learn to motivate them - but for me, this could be a nice functions. Fx generate x users, with the same email and password.

    can we post on behalf of fake user/member ?
    just login as administrator, and we can post with millions of fake user id still without logout from administrator login

    I call that social engineering ? have you ever start your own forum ? I could not afford to hide people to post on my forum, I have to post on my forum my self ... to foster active discussion

    I recommend to just open two browsers.

    FireFox : log in as admin
    Chrome : Log in as fake user

    You are logged in as the user you're logged in with, not as 'pretend to be that user'. You'd have to log out first, obviously. Just load 2 browsers, so you get 2 separate sessions going.
