MarioWiki:Changing username/Archive 4

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

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.
  • We will not consider requests for names which include symbols, accented letters, foreign alphabets, or other specialised characters which could be an inconvenience to type on a regular keyboard.

Previous renames are archived: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11.

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).

I'm changing my name for a few reasons. It is easier to type (the "ph" always messesd up), I've lost intrest in ravens, and it fits my Pikmin/Donkey Kong Country obsession.

Windspyro to Toadex

Rename

Windspyro (talk) Toadex (talk)
Unapproved

'Windspyro' is a name that relates to the Spyro series of video games, not the Mario series, and since when I signed up I was into Spyro a lot more than I am now, I think its very suitable to change my name to something that relates to the mario series. Plus, toad is my favourite character!

This violates rule #1, as you have been renamed twice within the past year. You will have to wait until mid-August. --KPH2293 21:55, 4 July 2009 (EDT)
