Forum:Change username?

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I've been wondering about changing my username, and I noticed that one of the help pages says you can request to change it. Where do I place the request? Or, being a sysop, can I change it myself? Baljit (talk) 10:54, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

You must have "renameuser" right to rename a user. Per Special:ListGroupRights, only Mods and Techs have it at present. (((Zack Martin))) 10:56, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
Which help page? -- Nx / talk 11:05, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
Didn't note the title, but I think it might have been a rules page rather than a help page - something like "users cannot have their names changed unless they request it". Baljit (talk) 11:11, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
What do you want it changed to?--ADtalkModerator 10:57, 7 September 2011 (UTC)
"Balaam", if that's okay - I've started to get a little embarrassed by the name "Baljit" (he was a puppet character on kids' TV, and for some reason he popped into my head when I was thinking of a screenname) and I decided that I'd rather be associated with the talking ass guy.
