MarioWiki:Changing username/Archive 6

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).

Supertails0 to Supertails10

Rename

Supertails0 (talk) Supertails10 (talk)
Rejected

When I Was Creating A Account I Forgot To Put The Number 1 Before The 0.

We can't rename you because you already created a "Supertails10" account after creating the original account. If you want, we can block and rename that duplicate account and rename the "Supertails0" account to "Supertails10". Or you can see if you can edit from the current "Supertails10" to save us the trouble or renaming everything, in which case we'll just block the "Supertails0" account. - Walkazo 19:45, 18 December 2011 (EST)

Yeahhh That Rename thing was me sorry i made a new account.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Supertails10 (talk).

Ah well, these things happen. I blocked the "Supertails0" account, so just keep using the "Supertails10" account from now on. - Walkazo 23:35, 20 December 2011 (EST)

XoBlack Veil BridesXo to Star Maniac

Rename

XoBlack Veil BridesXo (talk) Star Maniac (talk)

Ultraluigi is kind of unoriginal, and I'm called Humbug on other websites.

Rename

Paper Mario Kart (talk) PMK (talk)
Approved

Paper Mario Kart is long so I decided to stick with its initials.

MushroomNinja to NinjaYoshi

Rename

MushroomNinja (talk) NinjaYoshi (talk)
Approved

I like Yoshis now better than Mushrooms and MushroomNinja sounds like I kill Mushrooms, so if I was a NinjaYoshi, then I'd instead be a Yoshi that was a "ninja".

Thank you! But I'm confused... How do I accept to make the name my actual user account name? Purple.gifSMW2yoshi.gif NinjaYoshi Blueyoshi.gifYI Red Yoshi Animated Sprite.gif
