Wikipedia:Changing username/Simple

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
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 requested username is already registered, see Special:CentralAuth/Kasun Gamage. However, as they have made no edits, they are eligible for usurpation. If you'd like to usurp this username, please file a request at m:SRUC. If you do not want to usurp this username, please pick a new name. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 13:03, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

 Renamer note: Please choose a permanent name. We do not rename accounts on a yearly basis. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 16:40, 14 February 2017 (UTC)
Seconded. Username changes take up valuable server resources and we are not going to rename someone every year as their birthday gift. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 17:12, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

  • @Abramx:  Renamer note: Is this a request for courtesy vanishing—meaning you intend never to edit the English Wikipedia again—or are you just wanting to abandon this account? Please note that returning after exercising courtesy vanishing may be met with automatic relinking of the new account with the old one. If you are just interested in retiring, an extended vacation, or are considering a clean start in the future, placing {{retired}} on your user and/or talk page(s) and abandoning the account is the better option. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 01:19, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
