MarioWiki:Changing username/Archive 9

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).

Fandro to Blackfire Onyx

Rename

Fandro (talk) Blackfire Onyx (talk)
Approved

I dislike my username: It's just not very fitting and I feel embarrassed having it. Plus, Blackfire Onyx imo sounds coolio compared to Fandro so can you change it please? Thanks, Fandro.

Thatmariochick to Stargazing

Rename

Thatmariochick (talk) Stargazing (talk)
Approved

I don't really like my old username. I made it up when I was half asleep. I believe the username I chose to be my new one is better for me as I am fascinated with stars and i want to study astronomy when I get older. Thank you! Thatmariochick

Rename

I love Yoshi (talk) Sergio-Yoshi (talk)
Approved

TVTrash to Mariao

Rename

TVTrash (talk) Mariao (talk)
Approved

I've been saying Mario like this recently, so I thought I would change my username to it. R O Y 01:26, 26 July 2014 (EDT)

Done. And good job waiting until after the one year limit: it's always nice to see folks taking these messages to heart. Anyway, if you want another rename, it can't be until November 27, 2014. - Walkazo 03:24, 26 July 2014 (EDT)

Iggy Koopa777 to Iggy Koopa

Rename

Iggy Koopa777 (talk) Iggy Koopa (talk)
Rejected

Iggy Koopa777 did'nt sound like a good username and it sounded cheesy and it sounded like i stole Tails777's username. August,12,2014 9:08. (EDT) Thank you.

Already an user with name. --Glowsquid (talk) 10:26, 12 August 2014 (EDT)

Oh, but do you have any suggestions that have the name Iggy Koopa in it? 8:10 12, August, 2014 (EDT) (talk)

It's your name: you come up with it. - Walkazo 21:17, 12 August 2014 (EDT)

Oh, Meh, I'll stick with this name. (I just have to wait for a New Name to pop up in my Head) (Talk) 09:06 AM 13, August, 2014

Well... Iggy Koopa has been inactive for at least 3-5 Years Possibly More Iggy Koopa777 (talk) 11:19 AM, September 20, 2014

It made edits, it wasn't a vandal, and it's not unheard of for users to come back even after years. The answer's still no. Choose another name. - Walkazo 12:59, 21 September 2014 (EDT)

Fernando To AmazingGamer 91

Rename

Fernando (talk) AmazingGamer 91 (talk)
Approved
It's me, Fernando. I want to change my name to AmazingGamer 91, but what I did not know is that you CAN change it, instead creating this new account called :"AmazingGamer 91". So when I starting talking to editors about it, they said I would be banned. Is there any way to delete the account "AmazingGamer 91" or rename to a bunch of random numbers and letters and rename the "Fernando" account to "AmazingGamer 91"? I will see you soon.
Thanks for explaining the situation in full. Accounts can't be deleted, but I renamed the "AmazingGamer 91" account to "NoName5" in order to give that name to the original "Fernando" account. I also blocked the duplicate account, but you should be able to edit from your original no problem: just make sure to log in with the "AmazingGamer 91" name and your original "Fernando" password. - Walkazo 09:07, 6 September 2014 (EDT)

'Shroom64 to BabyLuigi64

Rename

'Shroom64 (talk) BabyLuigi64 (talk)
Approved

Okay, so "'Shroom64" was a cool name to me when I first signed up, but now I realize I don't like it much anymore. Heck, I just don't really care so much about shrooms anymore, meanwhile, Baby Luigi is my favorite character who is constantly being used in my sigs. The 64, meanwhile, is still a nice touch that I'd like to keep. Baby Luigi MSS artwork.pngBabyLuigi64Corrin (SSB for N3DS - Wii U artwork).png

Rename

Green 6017 King Of The Slowpoke (talk) Green6017 Guy (talk)
Approved

Walkazo was right, thats a pain in the butt to type.If Shy Guy is takken Fly Guy or Green6017 Guy is OK

Shy Guy and Fly Guy were taken, so you've been renamed to Green6017 Guy. Since this is your second rename in a year (not counting the duplicate account mixup), you can't get another one until February 1, 2015. - Walkazo 13:01, 21 September 2014 (EDT)

River Pirahna to River Piranha

Rename

River Pirahna (talk) River Piranha (talk)

Bla-ha-ha-ha! Is this name Used? It is my Forum Nickname and I love it! THANK YOU IGN! Paper Iggy KoopaMK8 Iggy Icon.png

Next time, make a new header instead of modifying an existing one. Thanks BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 22:43, 26 September 2014 (EDT)

I had to put this comment to get Noticed. 19:40, September 27, 2014

Paper Iggy KoopaMK8 Iggy Icon.png

I'm gonna be frank with you, that name is a bad idea, and you're gonna regret it. Most folks who get long names do. You're going to have to type it every time you sign stuff, you're gonna force everyone else to type it out every time they address you, you're gonna get sick of it fast. Unless you have your heart absolutely set on it, I really recommend finding something shorter and without punctuation. - Walkazo 17:57, 1 October 2014 (EDT)

Ok, you have a point. I am starting to reconsider of it. Even before you answered let me find another name (Thank you for preventing horrible consiquenses, sorry IGN) Paper Iggy KoopaMK8 Iggy Icon.png

No prob. In the meantime, I labelled this request as "rejected" to make sure it doesn't get made by accident or something. - Walkazo 17:20, 2 October 2014 (EDT)

Thank you. 7:33 AM, 3rd of October 2014 (EDT) Paper Iggy KoopaMK8 Iggy Icon.png

Approved

OK, so I first came here when I was 11 and registered with this username. And now I realize I don't particularly like this username much anymore, so looking for a change.

The Super Koopa to Iggy Koopa777

Rename

The Super Koopa (talk) Iggy Koopa777 (talk)
Approved

Salutations, I am actually Iggy Koopa777 but I am recovering my old account. The Super Koopa (talk)

Done. The original Iggy Koopa777 account was renamed NewName6, if you ever want to see your old edits or whatever. - Walkazo 11:00, 12 October 2014 (EDT)

Uhhhh...There is some "link" problems. You made the Talk page and User page link to the old one not the new one and I prefer the new one Paper Iggy KoopaMK8 Iggy Icon.png

If you used the new one now Walkazo would have to copy/paste it. ~~ Boo4761
Preserving the history of the more content-rich original pages take precedence over saving the new ones. Besides, I just edited the "The Super Koopa" pages into redirects, rather than deleting them or anything, so you can still get the new designs from their histories by looking at the older revisions. So stop yer complaining and be glad we're nice enough to go to all this trouble of giving you your original name back in the first place. - Walkazo 15:18, 12 October 2014 (EDT)

Randombob-omb4761 to RandomBob-omb4761

Aidanzapunk to BlueStreak

Rename

Aidanzapunk (talk) BlueStreak (talk)
Approved

The gaming club at my high school wants to take the members to MLG over the summer; considering how I run the Smash group in said club, and have a pretty strong level of skill in Smash, I figured I might as well make a gamertag for me (and thus, BlueStreak was born).

River Piranha to Chocolate Mario

Rename

River Piranha (talk) Chocolate Mario (talk)
Approved

Well, this does prevent another rename 'till 26 September 2015 but River Piranha is not very interesting. This new username is much more alluring and resembles Chocolate Island. River Piranha (talk) 14:42, 16 December 2014 (EST)

Done. And no more renames until Sept 25, 2014 (I just say the same day, one year removed: it's easier and allows for wiggle room about the specific hour of the day that the name was done and stuff like that). - Walkazo 16:12, 16 December 2014 (EST)

After being told that '... in a bush' is inappropriate, I would like to change it please. Shy Guy in a Bush (talk) 10:49, 15 March 2015 (EDT)

Sorry, that name's taken. Personally, I don't think "in a bush" is inappropriate anyway: most talk of critters in bushes is about the leafy kind, and hopefully that was your intent all along. Anyway, it's up to you whether you want to keep it or still get a rename. - Walkazo 18:43, 15 March 2015 (EDT)
