Wikipedia:Changing username/Simple

For help 'vanishing' from Wikipedia,
please see courtesy vanishing.
Requests to "usurp" an existing username should be made at Wikipedia:Changing username/Usurpations; straightforward requests may use Special:GlobalRenameRequest.

This page is a forum in which users can request, and global renamers (including stewards) can consider and carry out, requests to rename accounts to usernames that are not yet taken on any Wikimedia project.

While global renamers carry out renames, other users (including bots) help by "clerking" the mechanics of this process. If you wish to help as a clerk, please read the linked page carefully.

Instructions

Once you have decided on the name you would like:

  1. Read this page first. You must be aware of, and understand, all of that information before requesting a username change
  2. Check to make sure this username is not already in use. Do this by searching for the name here. If the name appears in the results, even if on another Wikimedia project, it is taken.
  3. Do not create an account under the new name or move/redirect your userpages. We'll do that for you.
  4. Log in with your present username in order to place your request. Renames will not be approved if the requester is not logged in.
  5. Click here to place your request.
    • Add your desired username after NEW=
    • Add a reason for the change after REASON=
    • Do not add anything in the "subject/headline" box
  6. Make sure that you have spelt your desired name correctly, including capitalization and spacing. Save the page.
  7. Users with many edits should log out of their accounts to ensure the rename is carried out properly.
  8. Check back on this page periodically to answer any questions that may arise regarding your request. Please be patient. It may take a few days for your request to be completed. If you do not answer any questions, your request may be declined due to no response.
  9. Once your request has been completed, please do not remove or mar your request. It will be archived automatically by a bot.

 Renamer note: The username appears to be promotional. Use of a company, organization, group, website, or product name as a username is prohibited by the username policy. Please choose another name. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 03:41, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

 Renamer note: According to our records, it looks like you've been renamed before. Please note that username changes take up valuable server resources and are not something to be treated lightly. Are you sure you still wish to proceed? —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 04:10, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
Yes I am sure. Gary "Roach" Sanderson (talk) 17:44, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

@Tyson5995: Please ignore the above comment about this being promotional, as I don't believe that is your intention. The username doesn't carry over to the article except in the page history. I see that you have been editing User:Tyson5995/sandbox (a sandbox) which was moved to Draft:Tri-River Athletic Conference. Article titles can always be changed and aren't locked into the name of the user creating the article. Feel free to check out the Teahouse if you have any questions or issues. Thanks.

@Johnhills81 and Johnhillsmusic: It appears that you made two different accounts and want both to be renamed to JohnHills81. Only one of them can be renamed to that and the accounts cannot be merged. Were you wanting the Johnhills81 account to be renamed to JohnHills81 as it is your second request? Nihlus 20:31, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
