MarioWiki:Changing username/Archive 7

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

Hikari to ThatPeskyKoopaling

Rename

Hikari (talk) ThatPeskyKoopaling (talk)
Approved

I've finally made up my mind. Hikari's not Mario themed, and Lady Timpani's an actual article (sort of), and I love the Koopalings. And I know it's my last name change this year, but I'm sure I'm sticking with this one. Got something to say? ThatPeskyKoopaling Look at all my edits! 04:26, 8 July 2012 (EDT)

Done. If you do get tired of this name, you can change it after January 8, 2013. - Walkazo 19:36, 8 July 2012 (EDT)

Lost Mini Star09 to Purity Essence

Approved

It's been what, a few months, since I joined and I'm quitting the whole LMS09 mishap where I was the "Ninth LMS, so make your username that"(MG2012 Quote) so MG2012 won't bother me!!!!!! Anyways, it also lost its originality, which makes me a little sad. I hope that you'll accept this. Toadette pallete swap.pngPurity EssenceToadette pallete swap.pngMy name was MG2012'd.

EthanFerris to Electrical Bowser jr.

Rename

EthanFerris (talk) Electrical Bowser jr. (talk)

Mom keeps badgering me to change my name 'cause she's paranoid I'm gonna get hacked. I thought this would be a cool name to change into. Electrical Bowser jr. 18:42, 17 July 2012 (EDT)EthanFerris

*Gemeas* to Super Candy

Rename

*Gemeas* (talk) Super Candy (talk)
Approved

"*Gemeas*" is very personal to put in a User name. Super Candy sounds good to us and it seems the name of an item of Mario, the family of the Super Mushroom + the candies Mario Party 8. (it's cute, admit) Twins Deia & Lica 21:24, 17 July 2012 (EDT)

MysteryGirl2012 to YoobStomper

Baja to Bαjα

Rename

Baja (talk) Bαjα (talk)
Rejected

Lately, I've been using 'Bαjα' more than anything else. If I can't use special characters, could I try a different username? Either way, this is my first and only desired username change. Baja (talk)

Don't use fancy characters: it's not worth the hassle (remember, other users need to be able to write your name too). - Walkazo 22:06, 19 August 2012 (EDT)

Technickal to Superyoshi64

Rename

Technickal (talk) Superyoshi64 (talk)
Rejected

My old username doesn't have much to do with Mario, so I want to "Marioify" it. My proposed username illustrates two great things about the Mario franchise, Yoshi, and Super Mario 64! Technickal (talk)

That username is already taken. --Glowsquid (talk) 17:51, 5 September 2012 (EDT)
I don't see it taken Technickal (talk)
It's taken. - Walkazo 18:11, 5 September 2012 (EDT)

Well, is this better? I looked at the log and there isn't a user named YoshiCookie. YoshiCookie (talk) 10:15, 10 December 2015 (EST)

TheGreatBlockyBoo to Superchao

Rename

TheGreatBlockyBoo (talk) Superchao (talk)
Approved

I need to have my forum and wiki usernames match, and I don't want to change my forum username, so I have to do this.

Also, if possible, please rename my old Superchao account to TheGreatBlockyBoo (basically a nameswap). If that's not okay then just name it Blocky. TheGreatBlockyBoo (talk) 21:06, 17 September 2012 (EDT)

SuperLakitu to TheShortcutButton

Rename

SuperLakitu (talk) TheShortcutButton (talk)

The idea came to me, and I had to use it. SuperLakitu 21:03, September 22, 2012 (EDT)

I decided I would like to have my username be my favorite character from my favorite T.V show. Raven Effect (talk)

Rename

New Super Yoshi (talk) NSY (talk)
Rejected

I know i've had two renames in the past year but I really can't cope with using this username anymore, I'm fine with NSY. Please just change it.

Rename

Rejected

I've decided on this name. i realize i cannot get a change for a while, until October... 18? or 19? Well whatever. PTR (talk) 20:51, 8 November 2012 (EST)

No, not until December 2, 2012. Your last name change, on Oct. 19, was the second one in the last year, with the name change before that (last December 2nd) being the first (as well as the second for the previous year, after your first name change on Sept. 25, 2011: hence your third name change (your latest one, from October) was only allowed after Sept. 25, 2012). Anyway, long story short, wait until December 2 to post your request. - Walkazo 21:05, 8 November 2012 (EST)
ok. I screwed up. PTR (talk) 22:43, 8 November 2012 (EST)

Baja to DaShroom

Rename

Baja (talk) DaShroom (talk)
Approved

So many people mispronounce "Baja" as "Bah-jah" and it has gotten annoying. "DaShroom" would kind of commemorate my joining of The 'Shroom two months ago. 20:30, 11 November 2012 (EST)

FourPaperHeroes to The Forgotten Beast

Rename

FourPaperHeroes (talk) The Forgotten Beast (talk)
Approved

"The Forgotten Beast" is my common user name throughout NIWA except here and it would be best for me to keep my title consistent. -Four Paper Heroes FourPaperHeroes.jpg 20:59, 17 November 2012 (EST)

Snow Spikes have fallen out of my interest areas, and I like Prince Pikante more. (talk)

LooneyKid to LooneyDude

Rename

LooneyKid (talk) LooneyDude (talk)
Approved

Since I have been a teenager for a while now, "dude" would be more fitting.

Edit: Thanks, Glowsquid. P.S. I am also in beta games, and would kill for any SMB, SMB3, SMW, SM64, or Paper Mario beta. I seriously would (unless the victim is Miyamoto).

Paperphailurethemariomonster99 to Binarystep

Approved

My username is long and stupid-sounding.

Someone123 to AtomicMario

Rename

Someone123 (talk) AtomicMario (talk)

The nickname Someone123 is kind of like having a password called "password" or "123456789". AtomicMario sounds more unique and even has the Mario in the name.

Rename

MarioSmasher (talk) NewSMBU (talk)
Approved

First rename of the year, according to my time zone: GMT +1h. I did say the last time that I won't request anything until January 2013, right? MarioSmasher (talk)

Actually, you shouldn't have been given another rename until February 16, 2013, since you already had two renames over the past year (last February and last April). Lucky for you, no one checked the math this time. Anyway, for future reference, your next rename can't be until April 9, 2013 at the earliest. - Walkazo 23:01, 1 January 2013 (EST)

I was told I cannot get renamed until Janury 4th which was yesterday. New Super Yoshi (talk)
Oh, derp. In that case... --Glowsquid (talk) 08:55, 5 January 2013 (EST)
Yep, it's your next rename after this one that can't be until the 21st. - Walkazo 17:19, 5 January 2013 (EST)

Rename

Shroomerio555 (talk) LuigiRoolz943 (talk)
Unapproved

I forgot to verify my username and now I can't do anything! -
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Shroomerio555 (talk).

What are you talking about? It's been a long time since I registered, but I don't remember a "verify your username" step... Either way, you username shouldn't have anything to do with your ability to edit, unless you've forgotten it and/or your password - in which case you'd need a new account, not a rename. Besides, you edited this page - that's doing something. Maybe the problem is that you're not autoconfirmed yet? That just means you need to make five edits in order to edit certain protected pages, move pages, upload files and create new articles. - Walkazo 16:27, 4 February 2013 (EST)

Rename

SuperFireBowserJr. (talk) Superfiremario (talk)

Mephiles321 (talk) [[User:NintendoPower NintendoPower ]] ([[User talk:NintendoPower talk]])
Unapproved

I want to use NintendoPower!! when signing comments.
The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mephiles321 (talk).

As seen above, the two exclamation marks causes glitch with wiki templates and such. Do you want to go with "NintendoPower!" (or more generically, "NintendoPower") instead? --Glowsquid (talk) 17:36, 6 March 2013 (EST)

Rename

Prince Bowser Jr. (talk) Prince Bowser Junior (talk)
Approved

This is my second name change in one year, I know. But, I would like to change my name once again. It looks strange to me when my username is at the end of a sentence. Like there is an extra unnecessary period at the end of my sentences. It'll look better to me. Thanks. Bowser Jr. 735 (talk) 16:06, 24 March 2013 (EDT)

Keep in mind that since this is your 2nd request this year, you'll only be able to request another name after April 4 2014. --Glowsquid (talk) 07:43, 4 April 2013 (EDT)
Actually, March 30, 2014 is the cutoff (one year from the first of the two renames, meaning that after March 30, he would've only had one rename in the preceding year; we let 'em get renames on the anniversary itself cuz we're nice (and the math's simpler)). - Walkazo 20:03, 12 April 2013 (EDT)

Fine, but the moral of the story is: write your password down on a piece of paper or something, so that it doesn't come to this. - Walkazo 10:18, 7 April 2013 (EDT)

Ever since I renamed, I wanted something a bit more shorter, so can I rename just this once?

You're now allowed another rename until March 30, 2014 anyway. - Walkazo 19:59, 12 April 2013 (EDT)

This has nothing to do with kindness. These are the rules, which is put up because we need regulation of changing usernames due to the feature being abused in the past. Bureaucrats don't make exceptions BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 01:31, 18 April 2013 (EDT)
