 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.

Comment: I'm not sure where this is going. Or if we'll ever see another edit from this account. Daniel Case (talk) 23:39, 29 August 2014 (UTC)


Only edits are to AfC submission. Please discuss this with the user first and re-report if necessary. Daniel Case (talk) 23:57, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Not a blatant violation of the username policy, but it's worth keeping an eye on their edits. Can't find a connection. Yet. And I wouldn't call that edit effective promotion if that's what it was supposed to be. Daniel Case (talk) 00:00, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
Comment: The two names are rather common, and he's editing articles about baseball pitchers. Are we sure it's necessarily the wrestler? It could be someone else's real name too, you know. Daniel Case (talk) 00:13, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
Not a blatant violation of the username policy. I don't find that too disruptive, although the user may want to change it if they continue to edit. Daniel Case (talk) 18:07, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Being discussed with the user. Since they haven't edited yet. Daniel Case (talk) 19:22, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Comment:The user I AM WILDEDIT has also created EZ Bot (talk · contribs) and I AM WILDEDIT (talk · contribs) claims to be the operator but he has only 2 edits in the bot account pages.Pharaoh of the Wizards (talk) 20:23, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
Question: OK, and this is related to this report how? Daniel Case (talk) 18:11, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
I AM WILDEDIT (talk · contribs) claims here and here to be the owner of the 2 bot accounts.Pharaoh of the Wizards (talk) 19:58, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Note: Take this to AN/I or some other noticeboard; if it's an issue about the bot operator and it doesn't seem to involve his username, then it really doesn't belong here. Daniel Case (talk) 00:17, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
Only edits are to AfC submission. Please discuss this with the user first and re-report if necessary. Submission awaiting review. Daniel Case (talk) 15:11, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Question: Umm ... why? Daniel Case (talk) 00:20, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
