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, the 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.


April 2021[edit]

Can I change my account name to just Robert? Because it's my name. RockyRob97 (talk) 21:26, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

I tried to rename you, but the username "Robert" already exists. Got any other ideas? Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 21:38, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

July 2021[edit]

This is mostly me leaving a quick note here, I'll be changing my username to Techpriest. It is not a registered account and should resolve a couple of issues with the fact that there was a dummy Sirius on the wiki too. Just so it's all logged and clear. Techpriest (talk) 16:01, 9 July 2021 (UTC)

Please change my name to 'Andrew5', as #1 if I get unblocked on WP I will probably be unblocked on that account (with a checkuser emailing the password), and #2 it applies gender correctly. Thanks. Gale5050 (talk) 22:09, 19 August 2021 (UTC)

Could you please change my username to 'Edger Halogen'? Quitting Religion (talk) 05:42, 12 September 2021 (UTC)

Done. Bongolian (talk) 07:50, 12 September 2021 (UTC)
Thank you sir. Edger Halogen (talk)

October 2021[edit]

Could my name please be changed to "armed_roomba"? This is how I usually format it and the space looks funny to me. armed_roomba (she/her)What am I doing wrong this time? 16:15, 20 October 2021 (UTC)

In one way, no. Unfortunately, as you'll see in the URL to your user page, the wiki software treats space and '_' the same way in page names and user names. (Space is replaced with '_' in links, and '_' is replaced with space when displaying page and user names.)
In another way, yes. You could change how it looks on your user pages on your own, by adding this at the top:
  • {{DISPLAYTITLE:User:armed_roomba}} – for User: page
  • {{DISPLAYTITLE:User talk:armed_roomba}} – for User_talk: page
You could also e.g. change the "User" to lowercase "user" in those if you prefer. You can do that kind of thing on any of your user pages. --ApooftGnegiol (talk) 16:38, 20 October 2021 (UTC)
Changed. Thanks for the tip! armed_roomba (she/her)What am I doing wrong this time? 16:45, 20 October 2021 (UTC)

Could my username be changed to "hopeful taste", please? Bhp99 (talk) 17:15, 27 November 2021 (UTC)

Done. Nutty Roux (talk) 18:08, 27 November 2021 (UTC)

December 2021[edit]

Hello, may you please change my username to "fja2021"? I don't particularly agree with some of the views of this site, and I think it's best that I don't associate with it. Thanks! Félix An (talk) 01:03, 2 January 2022 (UTC)
