MarioWiki:Changing username

From the Super Mario Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This wiki has a Renameuser extension installed, which allows bureaucrats to change any user account name that was originally registered with to a new name, as long as it's nonexisting in the database (i.e. not registered by someone else).

All edits made by the user will be changed in the edit history to reflect the change. However, this feature has been somewhat abused, so there are now some limits:

  • Each user may only change their name twice within one year. (User rename log)
  • Changing & then reversing the change counts as two renames. So e.g. going from Alpha to Beta and back to Alpha wastes your rename privileges for the year. Therefore please be 100% sure you'll be happy with your name change!
  • All requests go at the bottom of this page, not on the user talk of bureaucrats.
  • If the name you want is already being used by an account that has been completely inactive for years, and provided you have a good reason for wanting the name (i.e. it's your established nickname on the forums), you may directly contact a bureaucrat to see if the original account can be renamed, making the name available for you instead.

Previous renames are archived: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.

Contents

Instructions

  1. Create a new subsection at the bottom of the page using the code ===Oldname to Newname===
  2. Below this, use {{renameuser}} and put both your current and desired names (both case-sensitive), using this format: {{Renameuser|Oldname|Newname}}
  3. Leave a comment as to why you want the change after the template and then save the page.
  4. Bureaucrats will check this page daily and if accepted can use the "Rename" link on the top-right corner of each section to directly change the username and move all userspace pages.
  5. The bureaucrat will say whether the name change is accepted or rejected in each section, and if rejected, why (such as already being given two name changes over the preceding 12 months).

Rename

Floette (talk) Lemon Meringue (talk)

I was going to use "Gator Gamer" but I will use the most updated one I can have. I was told to come here to change my username. And I haven't made talk pages for my accounts quite yet. And, be aware, this is my first time doing this, so, I really hope this is right! And hopefully this username is not taken! I made a new account, this one, but someone said to go back to my old account and simply ask for a name change.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gator Gamer (talk).

Done. I also blocked the duplicate Gator Gamer account, so you can only edit from "DLC Dude" from now on. - Walkazo 20:51, 2 June 2015 (EDT)

As awesome "Mario" is for my username, I think "Bazooka Mario" sounds stupidly cool too, so I'd like to stick with that for a while. It also sounds less generic. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 00:17, 8 June 2015 (EDT)
