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.

 Clerk note: The username Aqkh (talk · contribs) has made no contributions to the project aside from this edit, or has only a few minor contributions. Of them only 2 outside user page and this request.--Kostas20142 (talk) 05:19, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
@Aqkh: are you comfortable using your real name as your username? If you confirm this, then I can proceed with the rename. -- Ajraddatz (talk) 00:16, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

 Clerk 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. – 1997kB 16:32, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

Sankalp.devgadh → sankalp.devgadh[edit]

  • The requested username is the same as your current name, aside from the first letter being in lowercase. Due to technical limitations, usernames must start with an uppercase letter. However, you may use the template {{lowercase}} on your user and user talk pages, and change your signature to reflect your preference.
  • 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 Sankalp.devgadh.—cyberbot ITalk to my owner:Online 18:20, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

 Renamer note: According to our records, you have been renamed before in the past. Please note that username changes take up valuable server resources and are not something to be treated lightly. Are you sure you still want to be renamed? —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 13:29, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
@K6ka: Yes, absolute certainty. Ruepc (talk) 21:14, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
