Userpedia:Rename Requests

Rename Requests Archives

Userpedia now has an extension installed which allows Bureaucrats to change any user account name that was originally registered with to a new name, as long as it's non-existing in the database (i.e. not registered by someone else). This feature is called "Renameuser".

All edits made by the user will be changed in the edit history to reflect the change. However, this feature has been somewhat abused, so there are now some limits:

  • Each user may only change their name twice within one year.
  • Changing and then reversing the change counts as two renames. So e.g. going from Alpha to Beta and back to Alpha wastes your rename privileges for the year. Therefore please be 100% sure you'll be happy with your name change!
  • Minor changes such as (de)capitalization of letter(s) and addition or removal of digit(s) will count towards your rename tally.
  • All requests go at the bottom section of this page, not on the user talk of bureaucrats.

How To

  1. Create a sub-section under "Requests" for each name change, with the title "(Oldname) to (Newname)".
  2. At the top of the section, use {{rename|current user name|new user name|__}}. (The second and third frames of the template are case sensitive. The fourth frame is to be left blank; the Bureaucrat who has renamed you will either put approved or rejected there.)
  3. Bureaucrats will check this page daily and if accepted can use the "Rename" link on the top-right corner of each section to directly change the username and move all userspace pages.
  4. The bureaucrat should say accepted or rejected in each section, and if rejected, why (such as already done twice this year).
