The Joker -> Slade

  • Slade's actual account has no edits, and I am have registered my username in many projects. Please rename from The Joker to Slade. --Slade meta 20:07, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
    Done. Please drop a note on my talk page if anything has gone wrong. For the record, I moved the other "Slade" to Slade2. Not original, but easy to find. --Dvortygirl 07:40, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Cerealkiller13 -> Atelaes

I wish I could offer a good reason for this, but sadly, I cannot. I simply did not take the time to carefully consider my name when I initially signed up and I really desire a slightly more classy name. I've been considering requesting a change for some time, and with the current admin vote occurring, I figured that if this is to be done, it should be done now. If this is an inappropriate request, I'll quite understand. Also, if this change does, in fact, go through, I'll be sure to note it on the vote page. Thanks.

User:Viele-baeren to User:FabianL.

Hi. Please rename me. I´m doing this requests at the moment with all my Usernames. Thank you, Viele-baeren 18:16, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Done. --Dvortygirl 18:21, 18 February 2007 (UTC)


  • Please change JD UK to J Di; it is the username I use on all wikis where I have an account. Thanks. JD UK 19:58, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Takanatsu the Frippant -> Takamatsu

Hi. I think it's time to make the name sound more serious so please change it to Takamatsu. Thanks. --Takanatsu the Frippant 20:49, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

Ds.schroeder to Neskaya

Hi, I made this account after losing an account to which I don't even know the password or username anymore. But I didn't make it to be the same with the name under which I am always on the IRC chat. If I could get it changed to Neskaya, so that I have the same username on the IRC as I do here, it'd be appreciated. I won't use Ds.Schroeder on IRC for privacy reasons, as it includes parts of my real name. Ds.schroeder 17:28, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

vishwin60 to O

Please change my current username to User:O. I am requesting this because I am trying to unify my logins as time passes (en.wikipedia, Commons, Meta). Thanks, (vishwin60 - minefield) 01:27, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

User:Eric the Gnome to User:Walton One

For the sake of transparency, I request renaming to correspond with my username on Wikipedia and the Meta-Wiki. See here for confirmation that I am the same user. (I have retired my old account here, User:Walton_monarchist89.) Eric the Gnome 15:43, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

Chris5897 -> ChrisDHDR

Please change <Chris5897> to <ChrisDHDR>. This is to keep in line with my other accounts (Wikipedia, fr wikipédia, etc) Chris5897 11:34, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Created User:ChrisDHDR instead --Chris589714:04, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Kyoko (temp) -> Kyoko

Hello, I was told that that someone else had created a number of malicious impostor accounts in my name, including here. I would like to usurp this account for consistency's sake, as all of my Wikipedia accounts are under my name, and I look forward to contributing to Wiktionary. It bothers me that someone would try to impersonate me. I will leave a message on my English Wikipedia talk page as confirmation of this request. Thank you. --Kyoko (temp) 14:39, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Confirmation of my identity and my wish to usurp User:Kyoko locally provided here. Again, thank you for your attention. --Kyoko (temp) 19:50, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Done. --Dvortygirl 03:16, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
    • Thank you for renaming this so quickly! --Kyoko 15:07, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Edmundkh -> EdmundEzekielMahmudIsa

  • Please change Edmundkh to EdmundEzekielMahmudIsa. Because I'd like to give away my old name to others and like to keep my own contribution. I've done name change in other wikis like Wikipedia as well. Thanks! P/S: Please leave me a message in Wikipedia. Edmund the King of the Woods! 02:02, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
Note that at the top of this page it says that accounts with less than 250 edits will not be renamed without a good reason. I'm not a bureaucrat so cannot say whether this will be deemed a "good reason" or not, but be aware your request might be declined. Thryduulf 18:18, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

I know, but just think, what if someone else in Wikipedia, or Commons, Wikibooks... want to use "Edmundkh" and found that he can't use the same name here!? Actually this name change is also for the person's sake too... --Edmund the King of the Woods! 04:06, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

I do not oppose this change of name; matching up with your name on other WMF projects seems like a good reason for such a change in anticipation of Single User Logins. Nevertheless, since my activity in Wiktionary has been limited recently, I would be loath to exercise bureaucrat privileges immediately when someone has already objected to the change. I note too that you have made a similar request of other bureaucrats, any of whom can also respond. If there is no further response in the next week, I will be glad to accede to your request. Eclecticology 16:40, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
I should note that my comment above was not intended as an objection to the change. Thryduulf 09:14, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

I'm now only waiting for username change here! Please change as soon as possible... Thank you! --Edmund the King of the Woods! 09:44, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

The use of the name "Edmund the King of the Woods!" is just too confusing. I am not going to action this change. SemperBlotto 09:34, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

But that's just my signature. Anyway, now I revert it back. Agree? --Edmundkh 19:04, 14 November 2007 (UTC)
