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.

Contents

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.

Instructions

  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

Moonea

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)

Dramus

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)

NSMB987654321

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

Cheetspeek

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)

Jordoex

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)

noclip

The lowercase username thing.

Done. -- Tom 12:55, 4 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)

Hi dot comster. I don't think it will happen, but can I have my name changed to Garchomp? I know I changed my name already and it's probably not going to happen but can you please? Johnny Ohm Talk ??? 01:36, 27 November 2007 (UTC) (R.I.P) Oh, and reply on my talk page because yours is long and my computer is SLOW and can you just change it for free so I don't have to pay 200 bucks?

Sorry, no. One per customer. — It's dot com 15:53, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Stringbodhunier

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)
All right, I'll rename you, but I'm going to insist that your name here and on the fanstuff be the same ("Puncher" in both places, not "Puncha" in one). — It's dot com 19:07, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
Done. — It's dot com 19:08, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Nallan

I made Nallan and realised it was quite similar to another user's account, Nallal. I just don't want to create confusion.

Done. — It's dot com 01:09, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Dementedc

I just wanna update it for the upper-case rules.

The user "dementedc" does not exist. — It's dot com 00:00, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
Ok... that's weird.

Hbah427

it stopped working

There is no user account hbah427, nor is there an Hbah427. Heimstern Läufer 23:14, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

optimisticfool

This is my forum user name; I'd like it to match my main username. Thanks.

Done. — It's dot com 14:55, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

Sloshy4eva

I know that there's an account named User:Sloshy4eva, but that's one of my old ones and I need that deleted, along with User:LongLivCoachZ. ~ CoachZ(talk · contribs)~ 02:43, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

It is technically possible to merge accounts, but I'm probably not going to worry about it in this case. — It's dot com 14:55, 10 October 2007 (UTC)

ClubPenguin923

Because I don't like Club Penguin anymore and I like the e-mail credit card. SuperfieldCreditUnion

The name in credit card is Superfied Credit Union (not Superfield). Please clarify. — It's dot com 15:38, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
I am well aware that it is Superfied, not Superfield. But this does not change the fact that I still want it to be Superfield. It was not a spelling error. SuperfieldCreditUnion
All right then. Done. — It's dot com 03:12, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

jamief-c

Stupid Lowercase username update!!!!!

The user "jamief-c" does not exist. — It's dot com 23:01, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Techgeekmbg

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)

I've wanted a new name for a while. I found one. The problem with most is mainly y icons, and everything, especially the TG thing in my sig. Nice thing about this is that that doesn't have to be changed. I want The Goblin! The Goblin!! 16:57, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Done. — It's dot com 16:59, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Dagron

Unless there's a rule against all caps usernames, I think I'd like my user name to match what Strong Mad carves (DAGRON). Thanks! Dagron 20:03, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Done. When I first saw the request, I was afraid you were changing your name to something else altogether. I'm glad to see you were just tweaking it. — It's dot com 20:55, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Sam the Man

Love baseball. I think this is a good name. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 23:21, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

Why would you want to change your name? Everyone knows you as Sam the Man — it'll be confusing! Trey56 03:41, 28 November 2007 (UTC)
Yes, you've established yourself rather heavily here under your current name, and as such I am rather disinclined to change it. Perhaps you could shed some light on why you would make this request. — It's dot com 03:49, 28 November 2007 (UTC)
Um, guys, everyone knew The Goblin as Techgeekmbg (as I still do) and yet you changed his name without this much investigation. Why are you picking on Sam? --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 02:03, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
I don't like it that techie got changed... i think that this whole name change thing is dumb unless it's a minor spelling or capitalization fix, or a switch for a relatively new user... but for an established user like techie or sam, i wouldn't think it a good idea at all. (Ya hear that sam? i'm saying that you're well known round these parts) — Defender1031*Talk 02:05, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
I was going to say that Sam has also been here longer, but then I checked the logs, and Sam's only a month older, account wise, than Techgeek (March 7 to April 25, respectively). So now my argument's all shot to whatsit. I guess Sam just established himself earlier than Techgeek. --DorianGray 05:18, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
The biggest (but certainly not only) difference between the two cases is that Techgeek demonstrated a long time ago that he wanted a new name, and over time his feelings on the matter remained the same. Sam, on the other hand, seems to be making the request on a whim (or maybe not, but he hasn't given us much to go on here). I'm not completely against making the change for him, but I think it would be fair for him to give us a pretty good reason to even consider it. — It's dot com 05:59, 29 November 2007 (UTC)
Here's some reasons:
  • I love baseball, and my email is "strikeoutsam@——".
  • I want to make a fresh new start ever since I got blocked.
  • Meh, it's a good name.
That's some reasons. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:02, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
After further reflection, I'm not going to change your name. Sorry. You've established yourself under the name you have, and that's the name you need to keep. — It's dot com 22:07, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
But everyone knows me as Sam the Man, the guy who got blocked. I want to be Strikeout Sam, please!? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 22:08, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
Honestly, if you hadn't brought up the fact that you had ever been blocked, I wouldn't have remembered it. Nobody really dwells on that. (And, for what it's worth, it's not like changing your name erases those records.) — It's dot com 22:13, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
Strikeout Sam the Man, or whoever you are, I think you have made some pretty good points for changing your name (besides the bit about a "fresh start" which I don't really follow). You use another name elsewhere and its the name you prefer. And you've been sitting on it for three months, so if the change is made I don't really see you changing your mind and wishing you hadn't gone through with it. To anyone trying to dissuade him, I'd suggest that a rename is probably preferable to him registering for a new account and abandoning his history completely (which I hope it doesn't come to). Let the guy have his new name. OptimisticFool 23:04, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
Just to clarify, you guys are free to keep talking, but this thread actually ended four posts ago. — It's dot com 23:18, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
Here's a reason your argument on "Oh, I like this name better now than I did when I joined." I, admittedly, changed my username for that reason, but I 1) was not well known at the time. 2) used the name I changed to in my signatures ever since I got one. You have not expressed either of those. Furthermore, if I were to suddenly say "Oh, my new online alias is s0merand0mdude, change it to that please," I would get shot down in similar fashion. Just say that outside the wiki, you are known as StrikeoutSam. Problem solved. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 23:25, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Biscuthead

I misspelled biscuit. Me is genius. --Biscuthead 22:26, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Done. I noticed that when you created your account. ;) — It's dot com 06:00, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

I want it to be consistent with my Fanstuff user name.

Done. — It's dot com 15:51, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Imdaman

i just like meme3 since i have it with almost everything else Imdaman 06:09, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Done. The name was automatically capitalized. — It's dot com 06:58, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
It's not working for me. my name and password is right i think
nevermind,fixed, but i wonder why my password was changed Meme3 05:41, 31 January 2008 (UTC)


Lasor Lime

I made a mistake in the spelling of Laser. I'd like for it to be changed to Laser Lime instead of laser being spelled with an "o". Lasor Lime 23:39, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Done. Sorry for the delay. — It's dot com 22:14, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

School of Rock

My name is Jack Black but you can change my name to Dewey Finn because you probably know me best as Dewey Finn from the movie School of Rock.

I see you've just been blocked for spamming talk pages. I'm holding off on this one until you show you intend to be a productive contributor. — It's dot com 16:46, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Alright, I will be an unproductive abuser. I mean productive user. Unproductive abuser. Productive user. Whatever. --Dewey Finn 14:33, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

I want my name changed to Dewey Finn. Pretty please!? --Dewey Finn 05:13, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

I wouldn't hold my breath. You haven't demonstrated that you intend to be anything but a disruption. — It's dot com 16:38, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Never mind. I want my name changed to Snuffy. --School 02:12, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Forget it. Don't make any more requests. — It's dot com 02:19, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Strong Devon

I just don't like my user name...can't really explain any better than that. Its just...unsettling. --Strong Devon 01:44, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

Done. — It's dot com 03:19, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

TheCoolRobot

I dunno, I like Super Turtle better. TheCoolBot 22:55, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Done. — It's dot com 03:19, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Has Matt?

I never really liked my name; the question mark just seems to get in the way of things. I also kinda figured I needed an image overhaul. (I can't have the young users thinking I'm old!) I've already changed my signature, since I know this request will be accepted. But if anyone has suggestions for an even more kick-awesome username, let me know. Has Matt? (talk) 10:20, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

I'm assuming this is an April Fools' joke. I did make you a User:Has Matt redirect, though. — It's dot com 03:21, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Kevin G. Dannerson

I decided I liked my 92nd day of the leap year prank so much i wanted to change my name to it entirely. Just like a super bowl commercial turns into a regular commercial. Besides, Kevin G. Dannerson is a pretty lame name. And this one actually has some meaning and not just words that were randomly thrown together in it. Kevin G. Dannerson 19:30, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

and did i forget to mention that i wanted a username that didn't have my brother's name in it? Kevin G. Dannerson 19:47, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Done. — It's dot com 03:19, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

Woddfellow2

I want my old user name back. —woddfellow2|Talk 18:32, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Done, since the first rename came about due to the 1.5 upgrade and you haven't really used it. — It's dot com 20:47, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Peter222

I don't really like my username. To many 2's. If you get rid of one it'll bother me less. Thank you.-PeterImage:Petersig.png

On your user page, you state "I also despise my username", which says to me that you would not want to be stuck with Peter22. In order to avoid having to change your name a second time, I'm just going to wait till you come up with something you like as opposed to something that doesn't bother you as much. — It's dot com 03:53, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
The excessive two's are the only reasons I dislike it. If I have one less I'd be fine with it and probably wouldn't change it again. Peter22 would not bother me at all.-PeterImage:Petersig.png
That's not what you said above. Your signature is just "Peter", so how about that? — It's dot com 04:16, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

Dramatic

I want more people to recongnise me as the guy fom the fanstuff that I am. Dramatic one: Dramitic, too?

The user "Smartie" does not exist. — It's dot com 20:01, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
Sorry. Fixed. Now what? Dramatic one: Dramitic, too?
Done. — It's dot com 22:10, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Lux Acerbus

This may just be me being paranoid, but somebody phished one of my accounts on another website recently, so if they got access to my email they might be able to figure out how to log in as me here. Anyway, after that I'd just like to move away from using "Lux Acerbus" for anything in case they do recognize this as my account. That and it'll help keep my username consistent with my accounts for everything else. ~That Guy Over There (User talk:That Guy Over There) 00:10, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
