 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.
  9. Please remove any reports that have been declined (tagged with {{UAA|no}}, {{UAA|ch}}, {{UAA|ci}}, {{UAA|e}}, {{UAA|np}}, {{UAA|r}}, {{UAA|rc}}, {{UAA|rn}}, {{UAA|s}}, {{UAA|su}} or {{UAA|fp}}), and move waiting reports (those tagged with {{UAA|d}}, {{UAA|dc}}, {{UAA|m}} and {{UAA|w}}) to the holding pen. Obvious false positives reported by DeltaQuadBot and DatBot may be removed.

Comment: I think "RSFSR" refers to Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, a defunct entity. This isn't a real group. 331dot (talk) 16:07, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
I agree, but do you not think a similar username, "Yugoslavia" would be problematic as well? or by extention, "Sears Canada"? Jon Kolbert (talk) 19:23, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
I don't see "Yugoslavia" as different than this suggested name. Sears Canada could still represent a part of the Sears company as a whole(which still exists, at least right now). The name isn't misleading if it is that of a defunct or nonexistent entity. Imagine "Roman Empire" as a name. Someone using the name of a long deceased historical figure would be permitted to do so("George Washington", "King George", "Abraham Lincoln", etc.) Personally I don't think this merits an immediate block as I see things now(I'm still new at this role, so I could be wrong.) Feel free to discuss your concerns with the user and go to WP:RFCN if they are not resolved. I also invite anyone else to correct any misinterpretation I have or to decide differently, with my best wishes. 331dot (talk) 20:29, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
Comment: What is the problem with this name? It appears to be a reference to the villain from Stephen King's novel It, but that doesn't make it a disruptive username. Metropolitan90 (talk) 03:26, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
Comment: I supose User:Can't sleep, clown will eat me might have a concern -- Dlohcierekim (talk) 07:48, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
