 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. Wait until the user edits. Do not report a user that hasn't edited unless they are clearly a vandal.
  8. 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.

Not a blatant violation of the username policy. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 01:06, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
Really? So what is this template for? Exemplo347 (talk) 01:12, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
The policy is a little vague regarding names that contain "bot". As it stands, we only prohibit those usernames which are easily misunderstood to refer to a "bot". Wikipedia bot accounts usually have "bot" as a suffix but rarely "robot", which is a common enough word that it may not constitute a UPOL violation worthy of on-sight blocking. Mobyvonrobot appears to be editing in good-faith, and there's excruciatingly little chance that someone will mistake them for a bot account within the next few days, so why not try discussing it with them first if you have a concern? – Juliancolton | Talk 03:39, 28 April 2017 (UTC)
