MarioWiki:Changing username/Archive 8

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia
Jump to navigationJump to 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.
  • 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).

Requests

Kibago to Hitokage

Rename

Kibago (talk) Hitokage (talk)
Approved

I wanted a name change to "Charmander" a couple months ago, but it didn't work out because that name is already in use. "Kibago" was kind of a quickfix solution, but it's rather dumb. People will think me a weirdo for being named Kibago when I have a charmander avatar, rather than naturally coming to the conclusion that I am a weirdo by listening to what I say. That is unacceptable. - GabuGabu.png Gabumon(talk) 20:35, 3 June 2013 (EDT)

Done. Your next rename can't be until October 27, 2013. - Walkazo 20:47, 3 June 2013 (EDT)

MegaDigga3 to Gonzales Kart Inc.

Rename

MegaDigga3 (talk) Gonzales Kart Inc. (talk)
Approved

I have lost intrest in Megaleg and Diggaleg because my SMG2 game is busted. I love Yoshis (who called Mario Gonzales anyway), Mario Kart, and Inc. because i have wanted my own business for a while. OrangeYoshiTTYD.png Me, GK Inc.!Gonzales Mario Kart.png(talk! · edits!) {{{1}}}

Done. Your next rename can't be until May 23, 2014. - Walkazo 20:23, 4 June 2013 (EDT)

King Pikante to KP

Rename

King Pikante (talk) KP (talk)
Approved

This username is shorter and sounds better. KP (talk · edits) KP Koopa TTYD.png

SuperMario150 to Ace Shadow

Rename

SuperMario150 (talk) Ace Shadow (talk)
Approved

This is a much more original, and simply better name, honestly. SuperMario150 (talk) 18:54, 22 June 2013 (EDT)

Mr.Vruet to Vruet

Rename

Mr.Vruet (talk) Vruet (talk)
Approved

Simple. I dropped use the prefix "Mr." on irc and Steam a really long time ago and believe my user page should reflect that. Mr.Vruet info|talk|chat

FireWario to Fire Wario

Rename

FireWario (talk) Fire Wario (talk)
Approved

All I want is a space between "Fire" and "Wario". It's as simple as that. personal-image-sigFireWario 18:18, 25 June 2013

Yoshi123 to Timmy

Rename

Yoshi123 (talk) Timmy (talk)
Approved

I prefer having Timmy since it's my IRL name and forum name, and it's a more simple name. Yoshi123 (talk) 19:38, 5 July 2013 (EDT)

Mariotime11 to Driftmaster130

Rename

Mariotime11 (talk) Driftmaster130 (talk)
Approved

I use this handle on every other site I'm on and am better known by it, so I would like to keep things consistent. Mariotime11 (talk)

KrazyKoopalings to Madikoopa

Rename

KrazyKoopalings (talk) Madikoopa (talk)
Approved

I'd rather go by this username because it's more original than naming it after already-existing characters in the Marioverse, and because I am currently using this as my forum name. KrazyKoopalings (talk)

Firetoad to SuperFlameGuy

Rename

Firetoad (talk) SuperFlameGuy (talk)
Approved

I thought Firetoad was just plain boring. So I wanted to change my username to something else. That's it. Firetoad (talk) 17:51, 24 July 2013 (EDT)

Transcript to RickTommy

Rename

Transcript (talk) RickTommy (talk)
Approved

This is my most common online name now. Plus, my current username serves an outdated purpose. Transcript (talk) 01:14, 25 July 2013 (EDT)

Bowser45 to Shadow

Rename

Bowser45 (talk) Shadow (talk)

Sorry, that name's already been taken. - Walkazo 13:07, 27 July 2013 (EDT)

Approved

I use this on pikmin fanon and pikmin wiki, and I want Pikmin 3. And I like the name. :3 Goombob NewMicroGoomba.png

JORDAN DEBONO to Jackpot_Jordan

Rename

JORDAN DEBONO (talk) Jackpot_Jordan (talk)
Approved

Well, having my username all in capitals and using my real name has become a little cliche now. Also, my Nintendo Network ID is Jackpot_Jordan, so I'd like to start adopting this gaming name. JackpotPersonolisedMiion3DS.JPGJordan 02:54, 6 October 2013 (EDT)

MarioMan51 to Armin00

Rename

MarioMan51 (talk) Armin00 (talk)

Toadette 4evur to SJ

Rename

Toadette 4evur (talk) SJ (talk)
Approved

I'm hoping to spend more time here now that I have the free time to do so, and I feel like I've kind of outgrew the Toadette thing. :P I'd rather people just use my actual nickname now. :) SJ derp :P 04:35, 3 November 2013 (EST)

SuperFlameGuy to «MMII»

Rename

SuperFlameGuy (talk) «MMII» (talk)
Rejected

(twothousandtwo) I felt like it. Also the year I was born. R O Y

Names shouldn't have weird symbols in them: the typing hassle gets in the way of functionality and convenience. Ditch the "«" and "»" and you can have the change to plain "MMII", however. Just remember that it'll be your second name change in a year, and you won't be allowed to have another one until July 24, 2014, so choose wisely. - Walkazo 23:40, 14 November 2013 (EST)

Rename

Approved

Yoshis are waaay better than Hammer Bros. Plus, the name is shorter.SMM Yoshi.png SuperYoshi1234 Long list of contributions. Get ready to be bored... Reply 13:45, 16 November 2013 (EST)

Done. As this was your second rename in a year, you can't get another one until May 23, 2014. - Walkazo 16:52, 16 November 2013 (EST)

Approved

Time for a change. Also I like this name better.

Rename

NEXandGBX to P-Winger

Rename

NEXandGBX (talk) P-Winger (talk)
Approved

Trying to keep my Wiki name tied in with my forum name, so i'm doing so ahead of time

SuperFlameGuy to TVTrash

Rename

SuperFlameGuy (talk) TVTrash (talk)
Approved

Time for a change. Also because I wanted to make a nonsensial name. SuperFlameGuy (talk)

Done, but as this was your second rename in a year, you can't request another one until July 24, 2014. - Walkazo 00:51, 27 November 2013 (EST)

Poisonmario990 to Poison Mario Mind

Rename

Poisonmario990 (talk) Poison Mario Mind (talk)
Rejected

I found out i can have spaces and my original rename idea was Poisonmariomind. - User:Poisonmario990

Sockpuppet. You can get your original account renamed to "Poison Mario Mind" when the block runs out, but you'll have to make a new section for that. - Walkazo 13:23, 4 December 2013 (EST)

Rin Kagamine to Soundless Voice

Rename

Rin Kagamine (talk) Soundless Voice (talk)
Approved

I use the name Soundless Voice pretty much everywhere now, so I thought it would be easier for me to have that as my username now. :) Thanks. :) Rin Kagamine (talk)


4Dimention to White Wolf

Rename

4Dimention (talk) White Wolf (talk)
Approved

4D was so random, and it doesn't say a thing about me. I super-love wolves, and being the White Wolf would make me happy! --{{SUBST:User:4Dimension/sig}} 13:05, 29 December 2013 (EST)

Billtn to NintendoDrilly

Rename

Billtn (talk) NintendoDrilly (talk)
Approved

This is the one I use for my YouTube and Wikia account, and I want my MarioWiki account to be it, too. Thanks! NintendoDrilly (talk)


LeftyGreenMario to Mario

Rename

LeftyGreenMario (talk) Mario (talk)
Approved

Already taken, yes, but it's a nice, simple name of my favorite character. Also meshes well with my twin sister's name Baby Luigi (talk), also a simple name based on her favorite character. The used name has no contributions whatsoever, and it seems to me that it was created just for the sake of it. If not, you may rename me to Mahdio instead. Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 17:29, 1 January 2014 (EST)

Merci beaucoup, Glowsquid! Je suis très contente! No, really, I didn't know it would follow through. ^^ Mario Green.pngKaBoom! 18:36, 1 January 2014 (EST)

Icemario11 to Icemario

Rename

Icemario11 (talk) Icemario (talk)
Approved

It's a simpler name without the numbers. Icemario11 (talk)

Cesh743 to The Golden Yoshi

Rename

Cesh743 (talk) The Golden Yoshi (talk)
Approved

I'd like to change my name because Cesh743 is too personal and the Golden Yoshi reflects of my favorite Mario character and it sounds more interesting to other users.

Luigitime to Luigi

Rename

Luigitime (talk) Luigi (talk)
Approved

I am requesting to change my username, luigitime, to Luigi. The reason why I am requesting this change is because I like Luigi, as he is my favorite character. Personally, I feel as if I relate to Luigi. I am not sure if the name is already taken however, so kindly let me know.

The name was taken by a troll who was blocked after making one edit back in 2008, but it's not like they need (or deserve) it anymore, so I renamed the old account and gave the name to you instead. - Walkazo 18:34, 5 January 2014 (EST)

WooftheChomp to Chain Chomp

Rename

WooftheChomp (talk) Chain Chomp (talk)
Rejected

i do not know why i did not think of this earlier but since the acount with this name has not done any thing in almost 5 years, im sure it's no big deal. that is the reason i could not create this name when i first came on. WooftheChomp (talk) 19:55, 5 January 2014 (EST)

That account has made edits, unlike previous accounts that were junked to make way for a rename, and thrashing accounts that made legitimate contributions is not a precedent I want to set. The hyphenated "Chain-Chomp" is free, though. --Glowsquid (talk) 20:11, 5 January 2014 (EST)


WooftheChomp to The Chain Chomp

Rename

WooftheChomp (talk) The Chain Chomp (talk)
Approved

i do not see this one taken and sounds fine to me WooftheChomp (talk) 20:14, 5 January 2014 (EST)

Rename

Ashley anEoTselkie (talk) Ashley (talk)
Rejected

I didn't see another user with this username, and mine was too large. So... Ashley DIY2.png Ashley(and Red) My 3d world.png

There is an account, unfortunately, and while it hasn't made any edits, it was created too recently for me to be comfortable making the name available for you. Sorry about that. - Walkazo 16:27, 22 January 2014 (EST)

Rename

Ashley anEoTselkie (talk) Ashley and Red (talk)
Approved

Alternative username choice AshleySmooth.png Ashley(and Red) Ashley WarioWare Touched.png 16:06, 23 January 2014 (EST)

That one I could do =) - Walkazo 18:01, 23 January 2014 (EST)

Electrical Bowser jr. to Shadow

Rename

Electrical Bowser jr. (talk) Shadow (talk)
Rejected

Rename

Electrical Bowser jr. (talk) Shadow rocks! (talk)
Approved

It makes me sound cool. If that doesn't work, Shadow rocks! is my second choice. Electrical Bowser jr. (talk)

"Shadow" was taken, so I've given you your second-choice name. - Walkazo 16:27, 22 January 2014 (EST)

Approved

I feel like this name is a bit better, and I way prefer Aron over Skarmory now.

VLtoadette to Toadette

Rename

VLtoadette (talk) Toadette (talk)
Approved

The name wasn't taken when I checked on it, but the reason why I chose the name "VLtoadette" in the first place is because I named it after "Viva la Toadette" which was my other account but I forgot the password to it so I made a new account (which is this) and now this is the only account I use, but currently, I want the name "Toadette" because I like it better. I have never had a name change. .::Toadette::. (talk) 14:36, 11 April 2014 (EDT)

Thank you Glowsquid!
