MarioWiki:Changing username/Archive 5

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.

Contents

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

Plumber to Don JakeBastille

Rename

Plumber (talk) Don Jakebastille (talk)
Rejected

renaming Plumber to {D}on JakeBastille. Don't move things, it's so annoying... Reason: In celebration of Bastille Day and 222 years of liberty. Like Peachycakes 3.14, I have become more identified with the name JakeBastille (aim, etc.) to the point that I overshadow the original (and largely forgotten) user, but I added the {D}on as a qualifier just en cases.

Oh, don't move things.

Rejected. Changed username twice this year.

Diddy Kong vs Bowser Jr. to DK and Diddy Kong vs Bowser and Bowser Jr.

Rename

Diddy Kong vs Bowser Jr. (talk) DK and Diddy Kong vs Bowser and Bowser Jr. (talk)
Approved

Totodile3456 to Explosive Pants Modifier

Rename

Totodile3456 (talk) Explosive Pants Modifier (talk)
Approved

DKC2 King Liam to Kaptain K. Rool

Rename

DKC2 King Liam (talk) Kaptain K. Rool (talk)

For The Win to XoBlack Veil BridesXo

Rename

For The Win (talk) XoBlack Veil BridesXo (talk)
Approved

My favorite band is called Black Veil Brides. I could have said XoAndy SixXo, but that would have looked weird. Anyways, I love this band and hope some people will listen to some of their songs cause they're a really great band(screamo in most songs, but still awesome).

Ilove marioandtoad to ilovemarioandtoad

Rename

Ilove marioandtoad (talk) ilovemarioandtoad (talk)
Approved

Reason: I am really having a hard time trying to figure out where the space is when i log in. I want to have no spaces in my username.

Rename

Coolmario900 (talk) Awesomemario900 (talk)

Approved

Approved

Yeah, so im a new user and want to change my username ALREADY!

Farvin111 to Baconator

Approved

Pokémon Trainer Mario (talk) Vincent (talk)
Rejected
Rejected because you've had two renames within the past year. - 2257(Talk) BbQbf6g.png 16:37, 26 May 2011 (EDT)
When can I have a namechange again? PTM 18:14, 27 May 2011 (EDT)

Much shorter name.

Tom The Atum to Bowser Jr And Tom The Atum

Rename

Tom The Atum (talk) Bowser Jr And Tom The Atum (talk)
Approved

Reason:I want to keep my user name, but I want to add something related to Mario, as this is the Mario Wiki, and I love Bowser Jr., so I will change my name to that. Does this mean I still log in as Tom The Atum?

I don't think so. Superfiremario (talk)
No, you won't. You'll log in under your new name. Xzelion (talk)

It's-a-me-Mario! to Mario vs Luigi

Rename

Ilovemarioandtoad (talk) Toad's Pikmin Army (talk)
Approved

Reason: I started playing Pikmin 2 and now, I like Pikmin, but I still love Toad too. I would like to have the Pikmin in my user name somewhere. Also, Ilovemarioandtoad was sort of a rushed name when I started, so I want a better name.

Remember that this is your last name change you can request for the rest of this year.

BoygeyDude to BoygeyMario

Rename

BoygeyDude (talk) BoygeyMario (talk)
Approved

Reason: There's nothing wrong with BoygeyDude, I just think BoygeyMario sounds cooler. SMS Strollin Stu Alternate Artwork.png BoygeyPumpkineer SMS Smolderin Stu.png

Nicke8 to Dry-Petey

Rename

Nicke8 (talk) Dry-Petey (talk)
Approved

I made the name 'nicke8' when I was 8. i'm not 8 any more, and my name has nothing to do with the Mario series. Dry-Petey represents the facts that i like Petey Piranha and Dry bones, and if Bowser can be turned 'Dry' then maybe petey can too.

Mathew10 to Mariofan457

Rename

Mathew10 (talk) Mariofan457 (talk)
Approved

This is the only website where my login has my first name. So I sometimes have a tendency to accidently type in "Mario" instead of "Mathew" since most of my logins have Mario in it. I also like it better.

Jblittle to Robokoopa

Rename

Jblittle (talk) Robokoopa (talk)
Approved

reason: I want it to match my picture.

Supremo78 to S78

Rename

Ah, my second name change.

You need to provide a reason for why you want the change... - Walkazo 17:31, 27 August 2011 (EDT)
I want to see how abbrieviating my name will be. Also, I like S78. Tadaa!2.gifSupremoTadaaa!.gif
Thanks. All done. Just remember: you can't get another namechange until after January 27, 2012. - Walkazo 19:20, 27 August 2011 (EDT)

WikiofSmash

Rename

WikiofSmash (talk) Dr.Wario (talk)
Approved
WikiofSmash sounds tacky and stupid. WikiofSmash "I love the smell of facepalm in the morning." 20:14, 29 August 2011 (EDT)

Steverocks27 to supermariorules

Rename

Steverocks27 (talk) supermariorules (talk)
Rejected

Reason: I may be a fan of Mario, but I can't prove it with this username.

I'm afraid another user already has the name "supermariorules", so you'll have to choose something else. - Walkazo 18:37, 31 August 2011 (EDT)

Steverocks27 to superluigirules

Rename

Steverocks27 (talk) superluigirules (talk)
Approved

Reason: I need a new username.

Mariofan7654 to BanzaiBill

Rename

Mariofan7654 (talk) BanzaiBill (talk)
Approved

Reason: I don't want to have numbers anymore, I dont want to be some plain old Mario fan and I like Banzai Bills.

Mario Bros.! to Mario & Luigi

Rename

Mario Bros.! (talk) Mario & Luigi (talk)
Approved

On second thought I do want to be renamed. PikaSamus (talk)

Ummm... Hello...? PikaSamus (talk)

Anyone here...? PikaSamus (talk)

HELLO?!?!?!?!?!?!?! PikaSamus (talk)

There's no need to nag: we saw your request from the start, but we've been busy, and 24 hours is not an unreasonably long wait anyway. Be patient next time: we get to the requests as soon as we have a chance. - Walkazo 23:10, 24 September 2011 (EDT)

Dr.Wario to Nintendo64Fan

Rename

Dr.Wario (talk) Nintendo64Fan (talk)
Approved
Dr. Wario doesn't seem better than Dr.Wario to me, so how about this? Dr.Wario ''User #19809'' 20:01, 24 September 2011 (EDT)
Done. Just remember, since there's only two namechanges allowed per year, you can't change your name again until August 30, 2012. - Walkazo 23:12, 24 September 2011 (EDT)

Goomblob to Ultra Fuzzy

Rename

Goomblob (talk) Ultra Fuzzy (talk)
Approved
"Goomblob" is a nonsensical and fool name.

Goomba's Shoe15 to Raven

Rename

Goomba's Shoe15 (talk) Raven (talk)
Rejected

Raven is my favorite wrestler Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)

Sorry, there's already an account named "Raven" on the wiki. You'll have to pick something else or stick with this name. Remember, this will be your second rename this year, and you will not be able to change it again until April 10, 2012, so choose carefully. - Walkazo 18:09, 26 September 2011 (EDT)
K Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)

Goomba's Shoe15 to Raven Effect

Rename

Goomba's Shoe15 (talk) Raven Effect (talk)
Approved

Name of Raven's finisher and Raven is my favorite wrestler Goomba's Shoe15 (talk)

Mariofan457 to Mario777

Rename

Mariofan457 (talk) Mario777 (talk)
Approved

I'm not sure why, but this is more fitting.

Done. This was your second rename in a year, so you cannot request another namechange until August 2, 2012. - Walkazo 23:37, 3 October 2011 (EDT)

Mas0n to Mason

Special request made on chat, since a long-dead account had the name "Mason" and had to be renamed so that the name could be given to this user, who is known as "Mason" everywhere else.

Benchip to YoshiKong

Rename

Benchip (talk) YoshiKong (talk)
Approved

Reason: My current username sounds too much like my real name, and I don't want people at school reconising me.

Pokémon Trainer Mario to Vincent

Rename

Pokémon Trainer Mario (talk) Vincent (talk)
Approved

I patiently waited.

Your first of the two renames was Oct. 22, 2010, so you'll have to wait a couple more days. I won't bother rejecting this request (that'd be pointless); it'll just stay unapproved until Saturday. - Walkazo 00:14, 18 October 2011 (EDT)
Sorry for the delay, but you've now been renamed. - Walkazo 01:08, 24 October 2011 (EDT)

Tbagger to Cookie

Rename

Tbagger (talk) Cookie (talk)
Rejected

Reason: Crap current username.

Sorry, there's already an account named "Cookie" on this wiki. You'll have to pick something else. - Walkazo 22:04, 18 October 2011 (EDT)

KoopaMan to Nasta-Peacha

Rename

KoopaMan (talk) Nasta-Peacha (talk)
Rejected

Reason:I am retiring and my sister wants to give wiki-ing a try.

Umm....Hello?-KoopaMan

Anyone here?-KoopaMan (aka Nasta-Peacha)

HELLO?!?!?!?!?!??!!??!!??!!?!??
The preceding unsigned comment was added by KoopaMan (talk).

Don't nag: CC and I aren't on the wiki 24/7 so unless your timing's lucky, it'll take a few hours before we see a request (maybe longer if we're both busy). Anyway, one user per account - and they're non-transferable. Just make a new account for Nasta-Peacha. Plus, this way, she's not stuck with all the warnings and block records that her brother accumulated - Walkazo 22:27, 19 October 2011 (EDT)


You actually know I am a boy?-KoopaMan

She knows, KoopaMan. PikaSamus (talk)

Brock1221 to Brock

Rename

Brock1221 (talk) Brock (talk)
Approved

Reason: I've been Brock forever on the chats and on Userpedia. When I first joined mariowiki, there was a name rule in place on the chats, and I wanted to be able to freely change my name, so the numbers allowed me to tack on 1221 to my names in order to still be recognized and comply with, at the time, the chat nick rules. Now, since I am the only Brock, and the original rule that required me to have numbers in my name has changed, I wanted to change to just Brock, and make it less confusing for people who already know me as just Brock.

Magic Mushroom to //Dark//Doopliss//

Rename

Magic Mushroom (talk) //Dark//Doopliss// (talk)
Rejected

Reason: I'm a new user, and I just thought of a better name than my old one.

The slashes won't work properly. Try to choose a name without special symbols: they needlessly complicate things. - Walkazo 22:43, 24 October 2011 (EDT)

Magic Mushroom to DarthDoopliss69

Rename

Magic Mushroom (talk) DarthDoopliss69 (talk)
Approved

Reason: It's me again. I'm sorry about last time, so here is my new name.

Toadfan9 to Yoshifan9

Rename

Toadfan9 (talk) Yoshifan9 (talk)
Approved

Reason: I have that name on the SmashWiki. I want the same name on both wikis.

Zekrom to PokemonLucas100

Rename

Zekrom (talk) PokemonLucas100 (talk)
Rejected

Reason: "Zekrom" is name of a Pokemon, this is Super MARIO Wiki. I dont know why I named myself "Zekrom" and i want my fans to know im PokemonLucas100 from YouTube.

Sorry, you already used that name as one of your sockpuppets, so it's not available. - Walkazo 00:12, 23 November 2011 (EST)

Zekrom to PokeLucas

Rename

Zekrom (talk) PokeLucas (talk)
Approved

Reason: Use for other accounts to similarity so its easier.

Thebigveet to thebigveet

Rename

Thebigveet (talk) thebigveet (talk)
Rejected

Reason: the whole thing should be lowercase, easier that way.

The first letter can't be lowercase (technical limitations). But you can type your name in all lowercase if you want anyway: the links will still work. - Walkazo 16:34, 26 November 2011 (EST)

Smasher 101 to Smasher

Special request made on the forum, since a long-dead account had the name "Smasher" and had to be renamed so that the name could be given to this user, who is widely known as plain "Smasher", including on the forums.

Ultra Fuzzy to Ultra Koopa

Rename

Ultra Fuzzy (talk) Ultra Koopa (talk)
Approved

Reason: it's simple. Just a dearer enemy.

Done. Please be advised that this was your second rename this year, so you can't get another one until after September 25, 2012. - Walkazo 23:26, 28 November 2011 (EST)

Thebigveet to TheBigVeet397

Rename

Thebigveet (talk) TheBigVeet397 (talk)
Approved

Reason: More Capitals separate words better, also adding my two favorite numbers, 3 and 97.

KoopaMan to SpongeBlobby

Rename

KoopaMan (talk) SpongeBlobby (talk)
Approved

Reason:Being a Koopa-Bot is HaRD WORK,MaN. Plus, I wanna make my name more SBob-related.KoopaMan.png Gumball of the Stars (talk) 17:27, 30 November 2011 (EST) And I'll need a diff. "ME Image" if this happens.KoopaMan.png Gumball of the Stars (talk) 17:27, 30 November 2011 (EST)

Mario & Luigi to Pokémon Trainer Red

Rename

Mario & Luigi (talk) Pokémon Trainer Red (talk)
Approved

I like the Pokémon series better than the Mario series. PikaSamus (talk)
