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 for an individual account per year, and only one capitalization change may be made until you request a user name change. You may not request changes for other users.

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)

User:MaximilianoMK wanted to be renamed to User:Maxi_. Due to how underscores are treated as spaces on various wikis (such as this one) with page names, and that a user already went by "Maxi" a long time ago, this name change cannot be done. --KantoEpic (talk) 03:54, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

User:Fatal Error Emily wanted to be renamed to User:Emily. They requested this change within the same day as their account registration; it cannot be done until a year from now. --KantoEpic (talk) 05:41, 7 November 2020 (UTC)

User:OrangeYoshi wanted to be renamed to User:Yoshi. Someone already registered an account using this name in February 2016, so I cannot change it. --KantoEpic (talk) 01:02, 6 March 2021 (UTC)

User:DrFe4rless wanted to be renamed to User:Fear. This cannot be done because their account is not a year old yet. Once it is November 2, then they can be renamed if they wish. --KantoEpic (talk) 20:05, 18 August 2021 (UTC)

User:NikoPlays wanted to be renamed to User:Niko. The name was already taken, so this request cannot be done. --KantoEpic (talk) 04:26, 27 October 2021 (UTC)

User:AlmostTWD98 wanted to be renamed to User:AlmostTWD98>>. ">" is an invalid character, making this request impossible to fulfill. --KantoEpic (talk) 00:57, 18 January 2022 (UTC)

User:Aprotic wanted a decapitalization request. Again, renaming the user does not work because MediaWiki defaults the first letter to be capitalized. However, I did change links to his name to display without the capital letter. --KantoEpic (talk) 14:08, 24 October 2023 (UTC)

User:XenoGD wanted to be renamed to User:Xeno. His request will be fulfilled on the 17th, but now is too early. --KantoEpic (talk) 03:31, 3 February 2024 (UTC)
