Reporting similar and unacceptable usernames[edit]

‎Thvlqmfl (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS) Keymash name. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the internets go! :3 18:52, 2 November 2018 (EDT)

Failedabortion (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS) Self-explanatory inappropriate name. — NokiiSigH.png Nokii (T·C·L) 20:16, 20 October 2018 (EDT)

user:pootissnake if this is where we report inappropriate usernames, then this. 72.133.91.93 14:28, 6 August 2018 (EDT)Blueflame105

Reports go at the top of the page. Also, I'm not an admin, but I'm pretty sure that name is okay - been here for a long time. Black Vulpine of the Furry Nation. Furries make the internets go! :3 19:41, 6 August 2018 (EDT)

Fuck ads (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · ads WHOIS) Violates the first reason of unacceptable usernames per the Username policy. George Jones.jpg George Jones Walls Can Fall.jpg 21:35, 4 August 2018 (EDT)

Butts (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS) Yeah that is a dumb username, it has the meaning of something that I won't mention for obvious reasons George Jones (talk) 12:20, 11 July 2018 (EDT)

Yoshifan 34567 (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · 34567 WHOIS)'s Youtube name is now WaluigiTheGreat (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS), so i think they're the same person on this wiki. I think this moreso calls for an account merge then a block for sockpuppetry. PenroImage.pngPenro 19:43, 16 April 2017 (EDT)

No exact match, but several 2-quadrant matches. Safe to conclude that they are the same person, and worth inquiring. Serpent SKSig.png King 19:56, 16 April 2017 (EDT)


Extiicy (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS) has the same meaning as Marijuana which is unacceptable should have been dealt a year ago. AlbumArt-Dixie.png TabuuandMasterCore 13:19, 10 July 2016 (EDT)

I think it's fine. Serpent SKSig.png King 13:23, 10 July 2016 (EDT)

This guy's an inactive vandal who was already blocked. I don't think we should block him. PenroImage.pngPenro 10:38, 5 July 2016 (EDT)

YOSHIFAN198 (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS) am I the only one who sees similarities to Yoshifan 34567? Even worse since the latter made a backup account called YFAN34567. Ganonmew, The Evil Clone 09:00, 31 December 2015 (EST) I only made that account because I forgot my password to my main one for a few hours. Lol {{SUBST:ArticleIcons|sonic|y=ssb4}} Get Smashing!

Welcome to fart town (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · to fart town WHOIS) Looks highly inappropriate. Berrenta (talk) 16:57, 19 December 2015 (EST)

He's one of Drilly's vandals... Disaster Flare Disaster Flare signature image.png (talk) 16:58, 19 December 2015 (EST)

Smash master man (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · master man WHOIS) Same compared to Smash Master. He doesn't need to be blocked but go ahead if he does. Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Knee 18:53, 9 December 2015 (EST)

Le bog is up (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · bog is up WHOIS) It should be obvious despite the user being blocked. Ganonmew, The Festive Evil Clone 15:03, 5 December 2015 (EST) Yllid Yllird (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · Yllird WHOIS) The person just did Drilly Dilly backwards.

Suddenly, this reminds me of another user who named themself Elgralbelgrayn, which is Nyargleblargle reversed. - Drilly the Hedgehog 17:35, 18 November 2015 (EST)

Great. Nutcake is back! INoMedssig.png INoMed (Talk • Contribs) 13:51, 17 November 2015 (EST)
Indeed. If there's anyone who doesn't know, Nutcake the Destroyer is a vandal we had about a month ago. He, along with Countthedracula and BLT SANDWICH, started the Vandal Attacks of October 2015. Ganonmew, The Thankful Evil Clone 13:59, 17 November 2015 (EST)
Shhhh ---Preceding unsigned comment added by a turkey! Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 14:04, 17 November 2015 (EST)
I wouldn't necessarily say that is a violation of that policy because I'm informing people of who ND is. Ganonmew, The Thankful Evil Clone 14:09, 17 November 2015 (EST)
Thus giving him notability, which is exactly what he wants. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by a turkey! Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 14:15, 17 November 2015 (EST)
...good point. Regardless, can someone do something about ekactun Ganonmew, The Thankful Evil Clone 14:24, 17 November 2015 (EST)

DoctorTomoki (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS) and DrTomoki (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS) They're still considered "Doctor" Tomoki. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is made in America 19:06, 11 October 2015 (EDT)

Elgralbelgrayn (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS) I just noticed, this username is Nyargleblargle spelled backwards. - Drilly Dilly (talk) 01:38, 2 October 2015 (EDT)

Justin Bieber SUCKS! (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · Bieber SUCKS! WHOIS) Already blocked for three days, but this username also seems inappropriate due to it being offensive. (I don't like Bieber either but still). Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Charlie Brown 15:55, 1 October 2015 (EDT)

Kim Jong-Un (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · Jong-Un WHOIS). Again. Nyargleblargle (Talk · Contribs) 13:01, 29 September 2015 (EDT)

Might be time for an IP block. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 13:14, 29 September 2015 (EDT)

Lee Harvey Oswald (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · Harvey Oswald WHOIS) Ok, I think someone out there is making accounts with names of controversial figures. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is bad for me 13:01, 27 September 2015 (EDT)

Such as... Hitler and Osama Bin Laden. INoMed-sig.png INoMed (Talk) 13:11, 27 September 2015 (EDT)
And this guy actually vandalized the Roy page. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is bad for me 13:18, 27 September 2015 (EDT)
I didn't vandalize that page, I was getting rid of the vandalism related the Attributes section a week or so ago. INoMed-sig.png INoMed (Talk) 13:21, 27 September 2015 (EDT)
Should've checked RecentChanges xD INoMed-sig.png INoMed (Talk) 13:22, 27 September 2015 (EDT)
No, I'm saying the Lee Harvey Oswald account vandalized the page. Sorry for the confusion. ZeldaStarfoxfan2164 (talk) is bad for me 13:23, 27 September 2015 (EDT)
It's OK... INoMed-sig.png INoMed (Talk) 13:28, 27 September 2015 (EDT)

Tamerlan Tsarnaev (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · Tsarnaev WHOIS) Also intolerable because both Tsarnaevs (reality-wise) bombed Boston and killed hundreds (again, feel free to search up Tsarnaev on Wikipedia and/or Google). - Drilly Dilly (talk) 05:12, 27 September 2015 (EDT)

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · Tsarnaev WHOIS) Again, another intolerable username (if you don't know who Tsarnaev is, search him up on Google and/or Wikipedia). - Drilly Dilly (talk) 04:33, 27 September 2015 (EDT)

Osama bin Laden (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · bin Laden WHOIS) Unacceptable username. - Drilly Dilly (talk) 01:23, 27 September 2015 (EDT)

Nazi (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS) Again, plain obvious. - Drilly Dilly (talk) 04:47, 27 September 2015 (EDT)

Adolf Hitler (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · Hitler WHOIS) Pretty obvious. - Drilly Dilly (talk) 04:47, 27 September 2015 (EDT)

Pregnant ape jesus (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · ape jesus WHOIS) pretty offensive username. (Smashworker101 (talk) 13:43, 20 December 2014 (EST))

He was already told he had an inappropriate name. Not much can be done now, and I haven't seen him since the day he joined. Rtzxy Reflect.jpg Reflect! 13:55, 20 December 2014 (EST)
I know that part. (Smashworker101 (talk) 14:12, 20 December 2014 (EST))

User:Wieners in man butt Pretty sure anyway. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by you. Or maybe Nutta. 16:29, 1 December 2014 (EST)

Famikonkābī (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS). Not quite sure if it completely falls under the other language section, but it definitely falls under the difficulty typing it out part of it. PikaSamus (talk) PikaSamus 17:20, 2 December 2014 (EST)

A few accents doesn't make a name hard to type and still be understood. See Pokemon. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Trumpeteer 17:22, 2 December 2014 (EST)
I thought it was referring to linking to the user's page and whatnot, sorry about that. PikaSamus (talk) PikaSamus 17:25, 2 December 2014 (EST)

Extiicy (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS) ...Am I the only one who sees a similarity between the username and this? AidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNGAidan the Aura Master 09:25, 3 February 2015 (EST)

are you sure your illusions are coming? Smashworker101 (talk) 21:59, 4 February 2015 (EST)
Comparing Extiicy with Ecstasy kinda doesn't make a huge difference because Ecstasy is a philosophy, drug, emotional, songs, art, and a religion (kind of) and Extiicy is not a real word. So...... Smashworker101 (talk) 22:14, 4 February 2015 (EST)
I'm just saying they sound a lot alike, and it may or may not be a coincidence. AidanzapunkSignaturesmall.PNGAidan the Aura Master 09:05, 5 February 2015 (EST)

.... Although I do get why you might think my name (Extiicy) is affiliated with a drug, I really did not intend to make it that way, I do not seek to have people confuse my name with the drug, I've always had this username even before I knew what ecstasy was, it's just a coincidence I guess. [[User:Extiicy|

Renaming proposal[edit]

I think we should include a section on renaming users, so users know what exactly happens (and that it exists). It would go something like this:

"If a user doesn't like their current username, it is possible for a bureaucrat to change the username. The process is really simple.
  • After deciding on a new username, a user would report the new username request to an active bureaucrat on his/her talk page.
  • The bureaucrat will decide if the name change is appropriate. If it is, then the bureaucrat will ask the user to wait a few days to make sure he/she really wants the new username. When a few days have passed, the user should remind the bureaucrat of the rename, which at that time, the bureaucrat will rename the user. In the event the new username is not appropriate, the bureaucrat will ask the user to come up with a new name."

It's not the best of wordings, to be honest, but it's a general idea, and you may fix it as you please. Rtzxy Reflect.jpg Reflect! 22:58, 4 December 2014 (EST)

I'm working on a separate policy page for this; I don't think it really works well merged with this one. Toomai Glittershine ??? The Obfuscating 23:00, 4 December 2014 (EST)
Really? I think it could fit on this page. This is about usernames, right? Rtzxy Reflect.jpg Reflect! 23:02, 4 December 2014 (EST)
This is about "what a legal username is", which I don't think fits with "the procedure and restrictions on having your name changed". Toomai Glittershine ??? The Researcher 23:04, 4 December 2014 (EST)
Well, who says we can't rewrite this policy into a general username policy, one that's not just about which usernames are acceptable and what's not? It shouldn't be that hard to do anyways, right? Rtzxy Reflect.jpg Reflect! 23:06, 4 December 2014 (EST)

Should names quite similar or identical to article titles be acceptable?[edit]

^Per title. Regardless of what the answer to this question is, I firmly believe it should be addressed on the policy page. If this discussion has taken place before then my apologies. Main reason I even bring this up is because of the following user who has done no wrongdoing and seems to have made solid contributions thus far: Sm4sh (talk · contribs · logs · block user · block log · WHOIS) RobSir RobSir-sig.jpg zx 21:00, 2 March 2016 (EST)

Yes those are fine. It's a suggestion that people do not name themselves "Mario" or the like, but that's not an actual rule. Serpent SKSig.png King 21:03, 2 March 2016 (EST)

Copyright usernames[edit]

So seeing how SpaceDong was banned for having "dong" in it, would this mean that for example, I would like to request a username change to "ConstructAdditionalPylons", but it would be unacceptable? Dots (talk) Mega Man X SNES sprite.png The Blue 09:31, 9 March 2016 (EST)
