 Usernames for administrator attention

This page is intended for reports of inappropriate usernames that are blatant and serious requiring an immediate block. Reports are assessed according to the username policy and the UAA instructions. Please read those pages and the following bullet points before making a report.


Important! Please remember the following:

  1. Except in the instance of an egregious name violation, please do not report accounts with no edits or those who have not edited in the preceding 2 weeks.
  2. Real names are permitted, except when the editor implies they are someone other than themselves, such as impersonating a notable living person.
  3. Promotional names require evidence to be blocked. Do not report a username merely because it “appears" promotional.
  4. For libellous usernames, please contact an oversighter instead of reporting here.
  5. Discuss less-serious violations with the user on their talk page so that they can rename or abandon their account in good faith. Templates such as {{Uw-username}} or {{Uw-coi-username}} may be used. If, after discussion with a user, the problem still seems unresolved, a username request for comment may be in order.
  6. Do not leave a username warning on a user's talk page and also immediately report them here. Do one or the other, and not both contemporaneously.
  7. Volunteers and patrollers are asked to remove reports that have been declined, are bot-reported false positives or are otherwise non-blatant or stale reports.

Bot-reported[edit]

User-reported[edit]

Wait until the user edits. It could also be the name "Ben Dover"; hard to know with no edits. Usernames should only be reported if they are clear violations, and only if they have edited or attempted to edit(if they tripped an edit filter). Thanks 331dot (talk) 13:17, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
