Changing username/Simple
This page is a forum in which users can request, and global renamers (including stewards) can consider and carry out, requests to rename accounts to usernames that are not yet taken on any Wikimedia project. While global renamers carry out renames, other users (including bots) help by "clerking" the mechanics of this process. If you wish to help as a clerk, please read the linked page carefully.

Instructions
For help 'vanishing' from Wikipedia,
please see courtesy vanishing.

Once you have decided on the name you would like:

  1. Read this page first. You must be aware of, and understand, all of that information before requesting a username change
  2. Check to make sure this username is not already in use. Do this by searching for the name here. If the name appears in the results, even if on another Wikimedia project, it is taken.
  3. Do not create an account under the new name or move/redirect your userpages. We'll do that for you.
  4. Log in with your present username in order to place your request. Renames will not be approved if the requester is not logged in.
  5. Click the button below to request a username change
    • Add your desired username after NEW=
    • Add a reason for the change after REASON=
    • Do not change anything after CURRENT=
  6. Make sure that you have spelt your desired name correctly, including capitalization and spacing. Save the page. If your request is submitted malformed, please remedy it according to this page.
  7. Users with many edits should log out of their accounts to ensure the rename is carried out properly.
  8. Check back on this page periodically to answer any questions that may arise regarding your request. Please be patient. It may take a few days for your request to be completed. If you do not answer any questions, your request may be declined due to no response.
  9. Once your request has been completed, please do not remove or change your request. It will be archived automatically by a bot.



Important Notes After you are renamed...
  • Due to technical limitations, usernames must start with an uppercase letter. However, you may use the template {{lowercase title}} on your user and user talk pages, and change your signature to reflect your preference.
  • Underscores and spaces are considered identical by the MediaWiki software.
  • Use of a company, organization, group, website, or product name as a username is prohibited by the username policy.
  • Please understand the implications of using your real name before requesting a name change to it.
  • ... your name will be changed to the new one in the page history of every page you've edited.
  • ... your userpage and any subpages will be moved to the new name automatically. Please do not attempt to move them yourself.
  • ... links left by your previous signatures will still point to the old userpage; however, a redirect will be left behind to your new userpage.
  • ... your request will be automatically moved to the archives in the interest of transparency.

@Catinthedogs: Why you want to create a new account for Turkish Wikipedia? Just like to let you know that same account can be used across all Wikimedia projects. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:48, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Because I think that it will be easier to manage it that way; I would not like to have two separate user pages for one account. Catinthedogs (talk) 11:50, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
@Catinthedogs: Well in that case you can create userpage at meta and it will be displayed at both projects, also with that you only have to manage one userpage. How's this idea? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:57, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Well, I actually don't want my contributions and things that I will do on the two separate wikis to be shown as one account (i. e. having one talk page and one user contributions (I would like my user contributions to be shown separately in the two Wikipedias)). Catinthedogs (talk) 12:04, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Well, if you are using an account and check your contributions on a wiki it will show the contributions for that account on that wiki. So if you are using one account for English and Turkish, the English Wikipedia contributions page will only show your contributions on the English Wikipedia. Same with Turkish and all other wikis. There is a page that shows user contribution counts on all wikis for a user (Special:CentralAuth), but that’s different from the usual contributions page (Special:Contributions). As for one talk page, unlike global user pages that can be created on Meta, there is no global talk page. You will have talk pages for separate wikis. If I comment on your talk page on English wikipedia, it won’t show up on Turkish Wikipedia. I hope that explains anything for you.

@Catinthedogs: Sorry this took so long. Just confirming that you still like to be renamed after that comment above? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:54, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

@Tanvisinhatanny: It looks like you are confused with usernames and article names. Well these are two different things and it is not necessary to have username same as article in order to work on a article. If you still want to be renamed, please read username policy and choose another username. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:04, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

    • @Vesaliusanatodreys: The requested username cannot be chosen for a couple reasons: underscore will be treated as space, and the space at the end is automatically ignored, so the username will become "Ves"; however this username already exists.
