RationalWiki:Requests to change username

Please place your request below, and the username which you would like to possess, along with your reasons for the change. If your username has been already taken, but the account has either zero contributions or is banned indefinitely, then banned account can be renamed to make room for the new name.

Note that if your request is approved, you will have to log in again with your new username (the renaming process logs you out).

The rename process is logged here. You can enter your old username in the "target" box to find your new username if you are unsure what the new name is.

Requests[edit]

May 2018[edit]

I'd appreciate it if my username were changed to BobRoss, the main reason being that I was a fan. Secondly, so conservapedia members can recognize me. Darthmaul (talk) 21:24, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

@BobRoss Done. —Kazitor, pending 22:09, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

I'd like my username changed to Millennium Scallion. Because (a) time for a change (b) to discourage the off-wiki trolls. Thanks. Leuders (talk) 17:39, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

@Millennium Scallion Done. —Kazitor, pending 01:52, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

Even though I have had this username since 2010, I would like to change it to Enchanted13, because why not have a Taylor Swift related username? --Sophie (talk) 01:13, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

@Enchanted13 Done. —Kazitor, pending 21:53, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

January 2019[edit]

I would like my name changed to LoudCSharp, as I have recently realized I’m a trans man, so I would like a username that would be less feminine. Genevievegilliam (talk) 00:32, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

@LoudCSharp Done. — Dysk (contribs) 00:55, 28 January 2019 (UTC)

Someone said I should change name. What about Eagles 2023, is that acceptable? It's the mascot of the college I'm going to go to and the year I expect to graduate from there. Otherwise, what about just calling me Kate? Eagles 2023 (talk) 16:47, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

Not done. Kate is already used, and there is honestly nothing wrong with your existing username. — Dysk (contribs) 22:49, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

March 2019[edit]

I would like to change my user name to Mar9122 because I'm worried that Kiwi Farms might hunt me down since it had been used. Help me, please. Once you change my name, please delete the Ram2219 userpage. Ram2219 (talk) 5:38, 28 March 2019 (UTC)

@Mar9122 done. Your userpage was never created so there is nothing to delete. --RWRW (talk) 10:38, 29 March 2019 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Now, I feel much safer. Mar9122 (talk) 9:01, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

Hey, it's done. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 18:42, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

I want to change my name to BluePink. Because I'm a fan of BlackPink!(S.Korean Girl group) Gracchi (talk) 12:32, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Hey, why not? We used to have User:Blue and User:Pink round here :) Avida Dollarsher again 13:02, 19 May 2019 (UTC)
@BluePink Done. Oxyaena Harass 14:12, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

Not me, but can someone change that username involving a slur against black people but in Script Unicode, please? They were recently blocked. ℕoir LeSable (talk) 13:53, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

@Noir LeSable Done. Oxyaena Harass 13:56, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

January 2020[edit]

Could I get a name change to something like Sardonic_Salvation? Using my actual username for RW was a mistake, considering the fact that it would make me a possible target for harassment. Something much more anonymous and alias-y would lessen the chance of that (although anyone who checks this page can figure out my original identity, anyways. Not like I can delete my account and re-register, though.) Taberone (talk) 02:12, 14 January 2020 (UTC)

@Sardonic Salvation Done. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 02:16, 14 January 2020 (UTC)

Could I get a name change to just "xxezrabxxx" with no capitals. xxezrabxxx (talk) 21:58, 13 February 2020 (UTC)Xxezrabxxx

Sorry, because of the way the MediaWiki software works, a username cannot start with a lowercase letter. Cosmikdebris (talk) 22:10, 13 February 2020 (UTC)

March 2020[edit]

Hello, my username is my real name. Might you kindly change it to Cocoa's Basilisk? ®©TM Cocoa's Basilisk«talk at me» 13:18, 14 March 2020 (UTC)

April 2020[edit]

I don't exactly have a good history with this website, but I just re-discovered it. The right-wing hysteria around the pandemic has made me wanting to contribute some genuine edits. Could you change my username to my real name Ashton Cole? 18:40, 30 April 2020 (UTC) EDIT: Ashton Cole (talk) 14:19, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

There, it's done! --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 19:27, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

May 2020[edit]

I would like to change my username because it sounds too close to my real name. I would like to change it to Monotremous, because I like platypuses. Antee286 (talk) 09:54, 8 May 2020 (UTC)

Done. Oxyaena Harass 11:15, 8 May 2020 (UTC)

July 2020[edit]

I'd rather not be connected to my main username that I use elsewhere (notably WP) if I edit here at all, I'd rather go by the username Elesa. Thank you! Nanophosis (talk) 00:23, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

Done Scream!! (talk) 00:45, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

Could my name be "Rockford the Roe" instead of my current one, at the time I made this account, I didn't know MediaWiki supported usernames with spaces. RockfordRoe (talk) 06:54, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

Done. Bongolian (talk) 07:41, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

September 2020[edit]

Looking to change my handle to "Sirius", however it belongs to an editor with a single contribution, which is simply how they found the site. Would there be objections to renaming that user or uh...? The upper bit says stuff about 0 contributions, but this appears to have been a one-time driveby editor. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 17:20, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

No objections from me. Maybe leave a note on the user's talk page and wait a day or so just in case, but they're probably not coming back. --RWRW (talk) 18:42, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
Left a note. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 22:05, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
I've renamed myself. Old Sirius is now Sirius~2020. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 22:25, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

I'd like to request my handle to be changed to "Knight Commander in the Order of the Goat". If that's too long in your minds, "Knight Commander in the OotG" would do. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 23:10, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

If I had tech I would do it on the fly, but I don't. That's a good name you picked out for yourself there. Oxyaena Harass 23:58, 23 September 2020 (UTC)
Too long. What about just “KnightCommander”? Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 00:00, 24 September 2020 (UTC)
Sure, that'll work. Thanks. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 00:06, 24 September 2020 (UTC)

Can I have my name changed to FridgeMan54 Dr. (“LiNK” 49) (talk) 19:58, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

Done. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 11:09, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Can I update the signature of my old posts to have my new username? If not, then is there any way that I can have my account forcibly closed? This is because this website shows up when I google my old username, and I don’t want to be associated with this website anymore. FridgeMan54 (talk) 19:21, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

So you don't clutter RC, I'd like to request you hold off on doing this (as well as the fact that you apparently tried to modify timestamps which is a no-go in any situation). I can do this with Inferno Bot in one go for you (something like s/Dr. (“LiNK” 49)/Fridgeman54/g) should be possible, but I want another Tech to give the go clear signal before I go around running text replacement scripts. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 19:48, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
OK Thanks. FridgeMan54 (talk) 20:01, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
Not just to be a bit of a wet blanket but I don't think any such fiddling should be done without general (not just tech) approval. Scream!! (talk) 20:34, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
Fair enough. I won't do anything if mods don't want me to. Frankly, this is a bit of a nothingburger to me. Even if I do this, the diffs will show Fridges original handle, which makes this mostly futile and I'm no way in hell gonna suppress edits over something like this. Sirius (dog star / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 21:20, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

November 2020[edit]

Hello. Could you please change my username to Twodots? Apparently, the one I have breaks a rule by being hard to make out. Thanks in advance.Twodots (talk) 02:38, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

And seeing what you previously requested above, even if we did close your account, your username would still appear in the diffs, as others have already pointed out. --Goatspeed. How's my editingCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I've been messing around with 21:44, 5 January 2021 (UTC)
