From Homestar Runner Wiki

The user name users choose for themselves is no longer set in stone. On request, bureaucrats can change user account settings and article histories such that all previous edits of a given user are attributed to the new name using Special:Renameuser. Note: You must make the request from the account you want renamed; anonymous requests (except users whose usernames begin with a lowercase letter and therefore cannot log in) are ignored for security reasons.


Requesting a change

To change your user name, please make your request on this page. Please follow the procedure carefully or your request will not be fulfilled.


  1. Check if the new name you want does not exist (Special:Listusers). Do not create an account under the new name. (If you already created the new account, don't worry. We can do some stuff and fix it, but it's still recommended that you don't.)
  2. Sign in with the account that you want renamed.
    Of course, this is not possible if your account has a lowercase first letter. If you can't log in, then skip this step.
  3. Add your request to the bottom of the section below. Use the following template: {{renameuser|Old username|New username}}
  4. Once your request is dealt with, all edits from your old account will be reattributed to your new account.
  5. Move and redirect your user page and talk page to the new name if it has not already been done.

Current requests

Please use this template for new requests: {{renameuser|Old username|New username}}

DJ Te Cheat

I Don't Know If This'll Fit, But If So, Please Change this. Need to show Some Mad Props For My Homedog Blake. Thanks. DJ Te Cheat 24 May 2007


Could you change my name to "Moonea"? I know the name is created; it's my old account, and I never entered a password and was logged out. I also forgot my password to that account. Thank you in advance! 12:15, 22 February 2007 (UTC)


Could you change all edits with the name 'Dramus' to 'TDSDramus'? I'm the same person, but I forgot my password for the Dramus account, and did not have an E-Mail address linked to the Dramus account. Thanks. Lifing for love, drinking for free. 04:20, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

Done. — It's dot com 17:05, 24 May 2007 (UTC)


I'd like to change my username to Awexome. Retromaniac 02:06, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Done. — It's dot com 17:05, 24 May 2007 (UTC)


Like weirdguy, mine was lowercase. Haven't been on in a while, thus meriting this name change. Thanks in advancements!

There is no username "cheetspeek"... there is, however, a User:CheetSpeek, with a capital S... is that you? If so, nothing needs to be done... phlip TC 06:25, 24 May 2007 (UTC)


I'm not 100% sure if I made an account; anyways, it used lowercase first. Change from jordoex to Jordo_EX. Thanks!(Same thing as with wierdguy)

There is no username "jordoex", here, or at the fanstuff, or the forum... "Jordo_EX" is avaliable, feel free to just register it. phlip TC 06:25, 24 May 2007 (UTC)


The lowercase username thing.

Done. -- Tom 12:55, 4 June 2007 (UTC)


I want mine changed, as I like Homsar Walker better. --The Goblin!! 21:59, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, that username is too similar to HomsarWalker, which was created just over a week ago. — It's dot com 01:11, 18 June 2007 (UTC)
But there's also Homsarrunner and Homsar runner. Honestly, I didn't even know there was a Homsarwalker before I came up with it. How about Homsar Sprinter? --The Goblin!! 03:07, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Vile.exe to Zorc

I'm just doin what loafin' saysZorc 00:32, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

In order to do that, you have to log in as Vile.exe to make the request. — It's dot com 16:23, 29 June 2007 (UTC)


Uh, yeah... I misspelled it. Thanks 09 August 2007

No probablo. — It's dot com 03:48, 10 August 2007 (UTC)


Had no idea it was that easy. Neat!--Antisexy 04:34, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Done. — It's dot com 00:45, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Zapdos to Johnny Ohm

I don't really want the username anymore. Johnny Ohm sounds cooler. I haven't been here long so I think it's okay. Johnny Ohm Talk ??? 21:57, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Done. — It's dot com 22:34, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
Thanks Mr. Dotty. Johnny Ohm Talk ??? 22:44, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
Erm... — It's dot com 22:56, 25 August 2007 (UTC)


I've been told by an undisclosed source, (my best friend bobby), that I have these often. I just want to change it to be more like me. Stringbodhunier

Done. — It's dot com 02:36, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Numa Numa

Please? I don't like the username and don't really know the english lyrics pf that song. And Xx6xX needs his name changed on the fanstuff wiki, unless you got it. Numa Numa!! (T*C)

I like your name.--Kanjiro talk 03:50, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm not going to rename you something so close to Cow Puncher's (the former Xx6xX's) name. It would just cause confusion as to who's who. — It's dot com 16:25, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Wait a minute. Are you and the fanstuff user Cow Puncher the same person? If you are, then you should have said so. If you're not, then you need to stop referring to yourself using that name. — It's dot com 18:48, 3 September 2007 (UTC) I am. Numa Numa!! (T*C)
