MarioWiki:Changing username

From the Super Mario Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This wiki has a rename user extension installed, which allows bureaucrats to change any user account to a new name, as long as it's not already in-use 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 in the past, so there are some limits:

  • Users must be registered for at least three months to be eligible for a rename.
  • Each user must wait one year between renames (user rename log). However, changing and then reversing the change is allowed once. For example, going from Alpha to Beta and back to Alpha is allowed, but you would need to wait a year if you want to change to something else.
  • 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 a short-lived account that has been completely inactive for years, and provided you have a good reason for wanting the name (e.g. 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. However, if the account in question has made any legitimate mainspace edits (i.e. non-vandalism contributions), it will not be considered.

Previous renames are archived: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

Instructions

  1. Create a new subsection at the bottom of the page using the code === OldName to NewName ===
  2. Below this, use {{rename user}} and put both your current and desired names (both case-sensitive), using this format: {{rename user|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 a name change over the preceding 12 months).

Requests

GSYoshi to J-Luigi

Rename

GSYoshi (talk) J-Luigi (talk)
Approved


My trademark around the internet is having my name begin with J-, so I think I'd like to bring that here. Also you might have heard that I like Luigi a lot lately, so I'm going with J-Luigi.

Also first request off this archive, so that's notable I guess. JLuigi.pngJ-Luigi (talk) 19:44, 16 June 2017 (EDT)

The Koopa Bro. to Shy Guy on Wheels

Rename

The Koopa Bro. (talk) Shy Guy on Wheels (talk)
Approved


This is name I use on the forums, and the name I'm most often referred to, so I'd like switch to it.

Rename

Koopas lost shell (talk) Koops (talk)
Rejected



Koops is my forum username, and everyone knows me under it. Koopas lost shell has become an obscure name, I want to change it.Koopas lost shell GreenShellMK8.png 04:31, 10 July 2017 (EDT)

I'm very sorry, but that username is already registered and has made legitimate edits. You'll have to choose another name.
'Shroom Spotlight Shokora (talk · edits) 17:48, 10 July 2017 (EDT)


I see. Should I suggest that other name right here, or do I create a new section for it? Koopas lost shell GreenShellMK8.png 07:32, 11 July 2017 (EDT)

Best create a new section.

Rename

Koopas lost shell (talk) ManKoops (talk)

SuperYoshiBros to Waluigi Time

Rename

SuperYoshiBros (talk) Waluigi Time (talk)

Rpg gamer to Mister Apple

Rename

Rpg gamer (talk) Mister Apple (talk)
Approved



Mister Apple is my forum account, and my name throughout the internet. The name Rpg gamer was made a while ago, and I'd like to distance myself from myself back then. Mallow.gif RPGGAMERPaper Luigi.png'I HAVE RPG'Fawful-Laugh.gif 16:56, 21 August 2017 (EDT)

Skuchi037 to lcrossmk8

Rename

Skuchi037 (talk) lcrossmk8 (talk)

lcrossmk8 is my main name across the Internet on such places as YouTube, GameFAQs, and more...except here. Since I work here mainly, I'd like to be called lcrossmk8 to fit with my other names. Lcrossmk8 (talk) 17:22, 21 August 2017 (EDT)

Blocked users do not get name changes: please re-request when after your block expires.

FebruaryDracaena to Mashabely

Rename

FebruaryDracaena (talk) Mashabely (talk)
Approved


My current one is too long, and mashabely at least fits my forum username, and you have to have them match according to the rules. --FebruaryDracaena (talk) 03:30, 2 September 2017 (EDT)

Supermario85 to BNSFFan184

Rename

Supermario85 (talk) BNSFFan184 (talk)
Approved


I feel like my username isn't that appropriate and people may think I am a Super Mario profile, so I request this name change so I can have a more casual username, not to mention this name actually matches most of my other usernames on other websites. --Supermario85 (talk) 23:03, 13 September 2017 (PDT)

The yoshi co. to Mario Kart DS Fan

Rename

The yoshi co. (talk) Mario Kart DS Fan (talk)

I like maro kart ds. King boo dsfs.pngMKDSFTalk!King boo dsfs.png

Yosh Strider to Agent Kiryu

Rename

Yosh Strider (talk) Agent Kiryu (talk)
Approved


"Yosh Strider" is another deprecated internet name I don't use anymore. Plus naming myself after one of my characters is a lot less likely to become outdated :P PsycBike Toad.png wow it's Kiryu (TC) 21:18, 18 September 2017 (EDT)

Skuchi037 to lcrossmk8

Rename

I shouldn't have given you a rename since you already had one in September, but I only realize the mistake after the fact, so um, free rename you get. --Glowsquid (talk) 17:25, 4 November 2017 (EDT)

DiamondDragon721 to OrbicularCicada

Rename

DiamondDragon721 (talk) OrbicularCicada (talk)

Just a more creative username/gamer tag I thought up. I've used "DiamondDragon721" everywhere and I'd like to go through all my accounts on various platforms and change it to this.

Rosalina1999 to PowerKamek

Rename

Rosalina1999 (talk) PowerKamek (talk)
Approved


I miss this name, and since PowerKamek is my name on MarioBoards, I want it to be the same here so I don't get confused anymore. Thank you :) PowerKamekSignature.png(talk|contribs) 12:49, 14 November 2017 (EST)

WhompKing to Whimp

Rename

WhompKing (talk) Whimp (talk)

I like "Whimp" more and I already had an account where my name was WhompKing.

Sorry, but you must be registered for at least three months before you can ask for a rename. You may request one again after 19 March, 2018. Rosalina pose SMM.png Mario JC 19:19, 31 January 2018 (EST)

Polterpup to King Boo

Rename

Polterpup to Fawful

Rename

Polterpup (talk) Fawful (talk)
Approved



Been looking for a new username and this one is surprisingly not taken.

It was taken, but it's made no edits and hasn't been active for more than two years so it's yours now. Please note that you can't request another rename until March 19, 2019. Rosalina pose SMM.png Mario JC 01:19, 19 March 2018 (EDT)
@Mario jc: Isn't the correct date February 13, 2019 or earlier? From what I read on the policy page, two successful name changes can be made within a one-year period, not merely two requests for a name change. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 15:44, 2 April 2018 (EDT)
"Each user must wait one year between renames." The two-renames-per-year rule was changed in June last year. Rosalina pose SMM.png Mario JC 22:58, 2 April 2018 (EDT)

The Golden Yoshi to Cash In

Rename

The Golden Yoshi (talk) Cash In (talk)
Approved


Cash In is a name that I've been using online for the last year or so. Using it here would not only make things more consistent and easier to remember, but it would also make it easier for users to recognise me outside the wiki.

Starclimber the NightWing to Bramblecloud

Rename

Why does it say aprovved? Bramblecloud.jpgBramblecloud 12:16, 24 July 2018 (EDT)
It's still not August 12 yet, so don't be surprised if this gets rejected. MLPJToadetteWink.gif ToadettetheAchiever 12:37, 24 July 2018 (EDT)
Yeah, please be patient and don't make a request again until August 12. Alex95sig1.pngAlex95sig2.png 12:41, 24 July 2018 (EDT)

Spiny to Viperision

Rename

Spiny (talk) Viperision (talk)
Approved


I chose to be known as Viperision on this side of the internet. I am also Viperision on WiKirby (and you will probably find me on the Discord with the same nickname on both wikis' servers). --Spiny (talk) 11:17, 2 August 2018 (EDT)

CenturyOfLuigi to SuperML

Rename

CenturyOfLuigi (talk) SuperML (talk)
Approved


SuperML is the username I use everywhere else, so it'd make sense for me to use it here, too. --SuperML Signature.png 17:38, 22 August 2018 (EDT)

That name already existed, but it hasn't been used since its creation in 2014 so I've renamed that one to make the name free. Rosalina pose SMM.png Mario JC 23:09, 1 September 2018 (EDT)

More than just a high quality image uploader nowadays. Results May Vary is just this alias I have on parts of the web, name taken directly from that Limp Bizkit album. The HD Guy (talk) 22:33, 1 September 2018 (EDT)

J-Luigi to Koopaboye

Rename

J-Luigi (talk) Koopaboye (talk)
Approved



It's been like a year since I last did anything and since I want to get back into the community, I want to match my username with the identity I have on Twitter, Discord, and YouTube.

BoygeyMario to BoygeyPumpkineer

Rename

BoygeyMario (talk) BoygeyPumpkineer (talk)
Approved


I felt I needed a new name for a while now. For one, I like Mario & Luigi equally, and the reasoning for my new name is due to pumpkins being my favorite food, & Engineer being my favorite class on Team Fortress 2. This is also my current name on Steam. Strollin' Stu.png BoygeyPumpkineer SMS Smolderin' Stu.png
