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.

Mosherdude91 → inaneswine[edit]

Symbol comment vote.svg Robot clerk note: I have detected the following problems:
  • The requested username is already registered; see Special:Listusers. Please choose another name that does not appear on that list.
  • There is already a global account registered for Inaneswine.—cyberbot ITalk to my owner:Online 23:50, 12 May 2017 (UTC)
    •  Renamer note: The requested username is already registered; see Special:CentralAuth. However, as this requested account has made no edits, it meets the criteria for being usurped; if you are an established user and wish to usurp it, please read and follow the process at m:Steward requests/Username changes. If you do not wish to usurp the username, please choose another name to be renamed to. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 17:49, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
    •  Renamer note: The username Inaneswine (talk · contribs) has made no contributions to the project aside from this edit, or has only a few minor contributions. Since that account's primary project is the English Wikipedia, you might ask at WP:CHUU to usurp that name and a bureaucrat will decide if the request can be honored. You could also ask at m:SRUC but the rules there regarding usurpations are less flexible. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 17:49, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
Not done No response; no edits since filing request. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 13:46, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
