  • Hi Scott and Andrew,you were right. Basically I'd like my current name not to appear on the wiki. is it possible? I don't mind making new account, but Id like my old one not to show that name. Does that make sense? Wozza 19:53, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

    • The best thing you can do with your old account is to just not use it anymore. There's no way to delete your contributions or change the username.

    • That's not entirely true. We can't delete everything but if you write to Special:Contact you can request a username change on your current account. You have to pick a name that is not in use (so don't start the new account and then ask) and you can only do it once. When you have the account renamed, all your prior contributions will be re-credited to the new name. Any user rights you have anywhere will also be transferred over.

      In terms of on-wiki stuff, there will still exist a redirect from the old account to the new (ie, your current user page will redirect to the new one unless you get us to delete it) and the old account will always show as "Existing". Any place you have added your name to page content (eg. in a signature) won't be changed unless you (or somebody else) goes back and changes them all. I have no idea about message wall "names" on your posts as I doubt we've ever renamed anybody with a message wall yet :)

    • Thanks for that Wendy. I had no idea we offered such a service now. From the looks of the article history, it's just been since July. Glad that worked out for your, Warrick!

    • Wendy was kind enough to inform staff what a "Boppity Frackle" was. I was kind of lost otherwise while making the change :)
