How-To TUJ Stalk Competitor Alts (Updated)

Dammit, Mox has cottoned on to my secret that tutorials brings in readers. Gonna have to start churning out more How-Tos quicker =(.

This is an oldie but a goodie. Firstly big ups to Erorus for building such a pro site and service thats FREE. Cant ask for more. Go !!

Ok so Critical has a competitor called Discretetime. He has an alt called Silverpack. How does Critical know?

1. Add all your competition to your friend lists and you'll start to see this sort of funny business:

2. Compare the Heat Maps:

I know you're going to ask "Ok so now we know, what next?". Good question grasshopper. We are going to facebook TUJ stalk all his alts using only 1 click. See below for a simple 2 step instruction pic.

Step 1 - use a comma then add your competitor's alt's names (you can do this with more than 2 alts if he has an army).

Step 2 - bookmark it.

Step 3 - repeat for all your serious competitors, should be no more than 2 or 3. If you have more, you got some serious home improvement to do.

Critical the Crazy Cyberstalker? I am afraid so, but you gotta do what you gotta do to become Glyph Market Leader.

/sigh now the hard question is, how do we get rid of Discrete the camper. Sapu maybe you can somehow make TSM not work if your name is Discretetime or Silverpack, that would work wouldnt it?

Update for special characters in names:

Step 1 - search Glyph of Random Glyph.

Step 2 - scroll down to the bottom and click on your competitor's name with the special characters.

Step 3 - copy it out of the address bar.

Step 4 - laugh at your victim.


  1. On a content note...I had no idea you could string character names together like that, thanks a lot!

  2. You're welcome. PS your blog doesnt have an RSS feed? It doesnt auto-update when added to my blogroll.

  3. My main competitor posts on three different toons, all on one account. I have them all added to my friends list, that wasn't too difficult to do. The thing is, all his names are heavy on alternate characters, so I think it would be a big pain in the ass to figure out how to type them into TUJ. :/

  4. Anon,

    You can print out the alt codes by googling the microsoft ascii codes. You will usually find them in table form for easy locating.

  5. @Trutrouter,
    Just type the competitions name using normal letters. No alt codes are neccessary since TuJ will match all results with or without Alt code
