 Usernames for administrator attention

Important! Please remember the following:

  1. This page is for usernames that are such blatant and serious problems that they need to be immediately blocked.
  2. Reports are assessed according to the username policy and the UAA instructions. Please read those pages first.
  3. Please discuss less-serious violations with the user so that they can rename or abandon their account in good faith.
  4. If, after discussion with a user, the problem still seems unresolved, a username request for comment may be in order.
  5. Please do not leave a username warning template on a user's talk page and then immediately report them here. Either discuss it with the user, or report it for admin action, but don't do both at the same time.
  6. Real names are permitted except when they imply that the editor is a specific living person they are not.
  7. Do not report a username unless it has been used in the last 2-3 weeks. Older accounts are likely abandoned and reports of such users will be summarily declined.

(Non-administrator observation) Possible WP:SOCK of a stale WP:SPA account Endemol usa. --Drm310 (talk) 21:31, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Clerk note: Not a blatant violation of the username policy. Consider filing a report at the conflict of interest noticeboard. Mlpearc (open channel) 17:19, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Symbol question.svg Question: What makes you so sure this account is Marilou McPhedran ? or am I mis-interpretating your post. Mlpearc (open channel) 17:19, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
I don't think it is her account. She is the vice president of the UWFA, not the president. It seemed to me to be a violation as a role account. The other material was just to show that the UWFA in question was the University of Winnipeg Faculty Association, and not some other UWFA. No biggie. If it's not considered a role account username my apologies. Meters (talk) 23:15, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Question: How? Looks to me like an IP Address (see IPv6 Alexf(talk) 21:04, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

(Non-administrator observation) Uh, yes they do. They're groups of hexadecimal numbers. --Drm310 (talk) 21:54, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
