User names

This page is for bringing attention to usernames which may be inappropriate under Wikipedia's username policy. Before listing a username here, consider if it should be more appropriately reported elsewhere, or if it needs to be reported at all:

DO NOT post here if:

  • the user has made no recent edits, as there is no need to take any action.
  • you wish to have the block of a user reviewed. Instead, discuss the block with the blocking administrator. Generally, see Wikipedia:Blocking policy#Unblocking.

Before adding a name here YOU MUST ensure that:

  • the user in question has been notified and allowed time to discuss the concern on their talk page. You may use the {{subst:uw-username}} template for this purpose. Only post the issue here if they have refused to change their username or have continued to edit without reply.
  • the user in question has not already been blocked prior to bringing their username here.

If, after having followed all the steps noted directly above, you still believe the user has chosen an inappropriate name under Wikipedia's username policy, you may list it here with an explanation of which part of the username policy you think has been violated. After posting, please alert the user of the discussion, possibly with the {{subst:UsernameDiscussion}} template. You may also invite comment from others who have expressed concern on the name by use of this template.

Add new requests below, using the syntax {{subst:rfcn1|username|reason ~~~~}}.

Tools: Special:ListUsers, Special:BlockList


Reports

Please remember that this is not a vote, rather, it is a place where editors can come when they are unsure what to do with a username, and to get outside opinions (hence it's named "requests for comment"). There are no set time limits to the period of discussion.

Place your report below this line. Please put new reports on the top of the list.

I'd like to revisit the discussion that was closed here regarding the username of my alternate account, ☈. I would like the issue re-examined and usage allowed based on the long-running precedent I have just found at Wikipedia:Unicode usernames for allowing such usernames. I feel that either all unicode usernames should be disallowed or I should be allowed to use ☈; I do not believe it is fair to disallow use of ☈ while allowing the use of other unicode usernames to which the arguments against ☈ also apply. Had I known that precedent for allowing such usernames existed I would not have filed the original username request for comment, but since I did I feel like it is only fair for me to come back here to request a new consensus in favor of allowing use of ☈.

  • I stand by my minority position at the former thread, which is to allow, since I was not convinced by any opposing argument. I tried to open an RfC on the more general question of whether non-Latin etc. usernames should be allowed on en-wp as a matter of username policy, but it was hijacked into a meta thread about whether such usernames should be technically forbidden on a global level, which predictably failed, and consequently did not produce anything actionable.
However, I am not convinced the discovery of that list constitutes significant new information, and I do not see it as a "long-running precedent for allowing such usernames". Maybe the usernames were created stealthily against policy. Maybe they were created before there was a de facto forbidding of Unicode usernames, and they should be grandfathered. Maybe they are obvious violations of policy and should be renamed. TigraanClick here to contact me 16:16, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
