RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

  • Usurp the never used User:Admin, I think that was mine anyway! Admin2 (talk) 01:35, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
That's the default username created upon MW installation. -- Nx / talk 06:44, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
No its not, that account was User:RWadmin, controlled by ColinR[1] Admin2 (talk) 15:28, 7 September 2010 (UTC)
My bad. It's done. -- Nx / talk 15:38, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Done. -- Nx / talk 14:44, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

July[edit]

Hi me again. Yeah, just another tweak... let's go with "Rationalizer bunny" as a pun on the Energizer bunny. What do you think? Good/bad? RatMaster háblame 21:56, 20 July 2011 (UTC)

Are you asking for my opinion or are you asking me to actually do it? -- Nx / talk 07:43, 21 July 2011 (UTC)

August[edit]

From User:Ullhateme to User:UHM, just because I want it shorter. --ʤɱ libertarian 08:46, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

Done. -- Nx / talk 10:26, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

Hey, Nx. Could you please move me from BbMaj7 to B♭maj7#11, if you would be so kind. (I couldn't get the non-alphanumerics in when I signed up). Thanks, sir. BbMaj7 Doin' to you in your ear hole. 15:33, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

September '11[edit]

I have - metaphorically speaking - sobered up and decided to ditch the name 'eyeonicr' on this site (if nothing else I'd rather this not be seen to categorise me) and change it to User:PeterL. You know, just in case a RFNALI policy is ever implemented ;)

If you're not too busy/deposed, of course...

Eyeonicr talk, or type, or whatever... 04:39, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Done. -- Nx / talk 04:59, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Done. -- Nx / talk 08:59, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

"Socal212" is incredibly tacky and a testament to my lack of creativity when it comes to usernames. May I have changed to just "Sam"? Sam Tally-ho! 00:27, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Hecho. Seme Blue 00:34, 27 December 2011 (UTC)
¡Muchas gracias, Azul! Sam Tally-ho! 00:39, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Could I please change my name to "StacyB"? I've decided that I (a) just don't like my current name and (b) do not want to be confused with another person using the same name on another site. --Danfly (talk) 16:02, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Done. Seme Blue 06:10, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Could anybody change my username to User:Maximaman? I think my username sounds stupid. Additionally, the new one is an alias I use to log into most sites which I'm registered in. Qocheedy daiin (talk) 05:34, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Done. Seme Blue 06:08, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. Maximaman (talk) 06:34, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

Done. AceModerator 23:08, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

I'd like to be renamed to User:Ochotonaprinceps because I seem to have typoed it at the time of my account creation and didn't notice it until now. I'm a freaking IDIOT . Incidentally, it's the Latin name for these cute little guys. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 02:37, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

I'd like to change my name to Andy Franlinson...I misspelled my name too... --Andy Frankinson (talk) 13:00, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

Done.--ADtalkModerator 21:21, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

It would be very nice if I could usurp the unused account of Special:Contributions/Alice because Alice is what people usually call me. Thanks in advance if that would be possible... --singaporeAlice 04:53, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

It's done. Peter Droid whisperer 05:13, 2 February 2013 (UTC)
Wow! That was fast.
Thank you very much indeed, Peter. --Alice 05:20, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

May 2013[edit]

Current username is stupid, so I'd like to have it changed to Lola Lazerface. The original Lazerface may have become a goddamn idiot after the first album, but the name's still cool as hell. Thank you, beautiful people. WF Lizardbrain (talk) 05:42, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

January 2014[edit]

August 2014[edit]

I was never new to writing wiki's when I edited here, I want to go by Exiled Encyclopedist as I try to get enough people to petition arbcom to let me back on for the work I've done here and on wikipedia. I'm sure I taught you at least one thing you find interesting, sad or useful, but are glad to know, I mean learned more than I intended here and am glad. Amateur Encyclopedist (talk) 21:12, 31 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Could you put spaces between the words in my user name, please?

July 2015[edit]

  • Crimson Guard to Krom. Some idiot is accusing me of "impersonating" someone else with the Crimson Guard name from another forum. Crimson Guard" is a fictional name from G.I.

August 2015[edit]

Change to RCV. Don't want my first name to be visible, because more anonymity. RCV (talk) 19:45, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

ConfusedLiberal to Blitz. It's how I identify myself on every other website; probably no reason I can't do the same here. Blitz (Complaints Box) 20:12, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Both done. BicyclewheelModerator 21:03, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

December 2015[edit]

March 2017[edit]

Please change from "SID 6581" to "PostalDude420" as it is my Reddit/Imgur username and I wish to have both easily identifiable. — Unsigned, by: SID 6581 / talk / contribs

No problemo. Also: On talk pages, please sign your comments using four tildes (~~~~) or by clicking on the sign button: SigButt.png on the toolbar above the edit panel. (You can indent successive talk page comments using one more colon (:) for each line.) Thank you. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 13:09, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

April 2017[edit]

Could you change my current name to Koidevelopment? That's the username I use on most things I'm on and every time I see this one it feels weird (plus this one has no good ways to shorten it or nickname. Edh? bleh. Ellie? bleh.) Koi just feels like home haha. Anim (Carfa) 14:09, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

As you wish, Koi Th hug.gif Reverend Black Percy (talk) 15:49, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

Can we change the names of the offensive vandals from earlier? Namely, 'All girls between 18 and 40 deserve to be raped', 'Koidevelopment, lets go rape a girl at Oral Roberts University!', 'Elementary School Girl', 'Shelby wants Koidevelopment's dick', and 'BloodRedLuigi'? Thanks. Parrrley 03:16, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

Well, I hid them for now, but you can keep BloodRedLuigi because hiding and rename that username is offensive to Luigis who inhabit Virtual Boys. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 03:18, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
Also, I'm not sure if this is the place to request them, though, again, if you check the rename log, nauseating usernames have been changed to more upbeat ones, so I'd imagine the request will be fulfilled... --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 03:20, 2 May 2017 (UTC)

June 2017[edit]

can you change my name to Rimuru Tempest? I was given this name I have currently and hate it. (-_-) --Whoknows (talk) 22:47, 10 June 2017 (UTC)

Can you please update my account username from "Piet Delport" to "Pi Delport"? --Piet Delport (talk) 09:57, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

Can you change my account name to Spoony please? Privacy reasons, and I really hate my current one--Spoony (talk) 10:05, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

I've thought about it, and I would like my username changed to Bigs (just kill that sockpuppet I made). —ℓσωℓу ѕуѕσρ вιgℓʝвιgℓ σf gσαтιѕтαи (ᴡᴏʀᴅs ᴏғ ᴡɪsᴅᴏᴍ/ᴀᴄʜɪᴇᴠᴇᴍᴇɴᴛs) 13:09, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

It doesn't work that way. You can't delete accounts like that. ClickerClock (talk) 13:10, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
It would work if you renamed the Bigs account, @Bigljbigl, any preference for what you want the Bigs account renamed to? Christopher (talk) 13:46, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Would you guys mind changing my name to SpacePrius? This is mostly in the interest of keeping my online identity consistent, and due to some personally identifiable information linked to my current name. (Not to mention it makes me cringe every time I see it.) Bubba41102Is reaching a breaking point 02:32, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
