Help:Rename User

From Custom Mario Kart
Jump to: navigation, search


You may request a user name change after being a member of this wiki for at least one year. For a capitalization change, you may request one after being a member for at least a month. Only one request may be made per account, and only one capitalization change may be made until you request a user name change. You may not request changes for other users.
Post your request like this:

New username

Mr. Floydster.2 would like to be renamed to "Floyd" upon request from Discord.

Update Your Links

Once your name has been changed, it is your responsibility to change all links except on talk pages from your old name to your new name. To find these pages, go to the old user page and click »What links here« from the toolbox. Start with the user-link-template, rename it and replace the old user link.

Not renamed

The user "The ZAC Atac" seems like he wanted to change his name, but instead of requesting a user name change he moved/edited all the pages with his old name with the new name "TheZACAtac". I don't have the Bureaucrat role and Maczkopeti is inactive, so Wiimm, you should decide wether to revert his edits due to not asking for a user name change or change his name. —Atlas (talk) 12:14, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

ok! See his discussion page. -- Wiimm (talk) 18:08, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Ok, I now understand what to do and I apologize for just changing all my pages instead of requesting a name change. I will change everything back and just wait till July to request a name change because then it will be a year since I signed up. -- TheZACAtac (talk) 19:20, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
It's not only "asking". "The ZAC Atac" and "TheZACAtac" are 2 different accounts. And If I rename it, the login account is also renamed.
Do you want the new name now? (Haven't seen the discussion pages yet)
-- Wiimm (talk) 21:34, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
Sure if that's possible. -- TheZACAtac (talk) 22:50, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
done. Please follow the instructions of above. -- Wiimm (talk) 02:17, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

User:Bri wants a name change to User:Bri-11. Although he/she is fine with the current name, if we had to go with the latter, there would be a bigger problem. Since User:Bri911 is already a user on the Wiiki, this would cause more confusion. I believe that we shouldn't exactly change this name — at least, not yet. --KantoEpic (talk) 03:05, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

JαmεςH not renamed to JamesH: ignored the text that says Once your name has been changed, it is your responsibility to change all links and proceeded to move his pages without permission. —Atlas (talk) – CT/MK8 Wiki Admin 13:46, 9 November 2019 (UTC)

User:Leaf39 wanted to have a de-capitalization change (to "leaf39"), not realizing that they can link their page without any capitalization problems. Renaming the user wouldn't do anything. --KantoEpic (talk) 23:55, 14 March 2020 (UTC)
