Archived Requests

DatNuttyKid

  • More accurate to Splatoon while still being consistent with my most often used username.

Now dat's a nutty kid. 02:20, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Looks fine. Approve. Slate Talk Contribs 02:24, 21 December 2015 (UTC)
Complete. -- Prod (talk) 04:45, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Elite Octoling

  • Lost a slight bit (not all) of interest in Splatoon, and because I've been more obsessed about Noivern than Octoling. There's also another user who's name is basically mine without "Elite", so I don't need confusion.

Elite Octoling (talk) 14:55, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

Approved. Waiting for bureaucrat to grant. ~SuperHamster Talk 21:52, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
It's been over a month, just posting here so it's not forgotten about. Elite Octoling (talk) 21:36, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

Done. -- Prod (talk) 01:05, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Ikakizzu

  • Current Name: Ikakizzu (talk | contribs | rename)
  • New Name: gtKaged
  • Just feels like such a newbie name to Splatoon, because it was translated from English to Japanese "SquidKids". I'm also getting tired on how the name stands out to all the other names. Thought I could change the name to my gaming name ^_^.

19:48, 18 February 2016 (GMT)

Approve. Need a bureaucrat to make the change. --Bzeep! talk 21:50, 18 February 2016 (UTC)
Done. -- Prod (talk) 00:58, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

Mr squid

  • Reason: Squiddo is my name on Wii U (it used to be Mr Squid) plus Squiddo sounds better than Mr Squid.
Denied - Unfortunately Squiddo is already a registered user and has made at least one edit. If you have another username you'd like to change to, feel free to reply with it. Thanks! ~SuperHamster Talk 06:03, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Reason: The Squid part should start with a capital letter. It looks better. (My Wii U name is now Mr Squid)

  • Reason for changing your name: Wanted something to match my twitter handle, and it's a name I associate more with the squid game.

Coleofloato

  • I misspelled my username (I was trying to use part of the word coelom).

Shachar700

ShinyCelesteela

  • It's a username I use on a variety of other sites, and I also feel it's just more "on-brand" for me. It's pretty much the intersection of my two biggest interests! Plus it's more relevant to Splatoon, which is good for, y'know, a Splatoon Wiki. ShinyCelesteela (talk) 12:57, 29 April 2020 (UTC)

Oscahienfan

Approved. Your name change request will be processed by a bureaucrat. Heddy (talk) 21:08, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

SquidSistersAreBestGirls

  • Old username reeks of the days when I was new to the game, and excessively fanboy-ish. New username is a reference to CDS, or Custom Dualie Squelchers, which is the weapon I use most, and is much shorter.

SquidSistersAreBestGirls (talk) 19:17, 16 October 2020 (UTC)

Prinz the overlord

  • Old name: User:Prinz the overlord
  • New name: Prinz The Overlord
  • Reason: A very tiny change, it goes better with my inki email. I have a thing with caps.

Astor File:Astor.png Prinz.png 15:03, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

Declined. You requested a name change in November; you must wait 6 months before requesting another change. Luke26 (talk) 15:17, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

Bambamoh

  • I am a big fan of dedf1sh, and I prefer my name being that instead of Bambamoh

BambamOh (talk) 22:27, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Declined. This username is already taken. Luke26 (talk) 22:33, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
I tried searching for a User:dedf1sh but the closest result was User:dedf1sh 3. If that's too similar, then I'll keep my current name BambamOh (talk) 22:38, 19 February 2021 (UTC)
Check Special:Log/dedf1sh1. On that page you can check if an account was created. For example, "dedf1sh1" is untaken so you could have that name if you want. Heddy (talk) 23:02, 19 February 2021 (UTC)

Yolo2020

  • When I created my username, I wanted all caps but it would not let me, but I see other usernames do have all caps.

Approved. The all caps restriction was in place to prevent bots from making accounts; it's okay to have a username like that. A bureaucrat will process the name change soon. Heddy (talk) 23:11, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

Yaxops

  • It was one of my names before I was Yaxops and I don't like how Yaxops doesn't roll off the tongue well. I would definitely prefer if I was Hazel (WN). (By the way, WN was my friends eSport team before it got disbanded in 2020. It wasn't really an eSport team rather just a fun team we had but we still use the name in honor.)

Cynical Prince

  • I feel like my style and appearance on Inkipedia is deviating from that whole "edgy and cynical" kinda thing I was going for initially. Additionally, I think "Princewave" (a portmanteau of Prince and synthwave) fits me and my irl personality a lot more. I don't think it conflicts too much with Firewave, but that might be prone to change if they start editing again.

Avery the Squid Phoenix

  • Few reasons. One: Avery the Squid Phoenix is too long, clunky, and hard to remember and type. Two: Avery_TSP is my username everywhere else, including in Splatoon. Even my signature is just Avery_TSP. Three: Avery_TSP matches me more than the full name does. I try not to be too showoffy and my current username doesn't really reflect that. Four: Avery_TSP matches everyone else's usernames more than the full name does. Five: Avery the Squid Phoenix is a cringe name and I have come to dislike it. Avery_TSP just sounds... better. Six: Avery the Squid Phoenix shares a few words with User:The Amazing Phoenix. It was really just a coincidence and not really similar enough to be significant (except in extreme cases) but I'd feel more comfortable having a username that is more distinct from everyone else's. But only a little (see point 4). (The only other name that starts with 'Av' is User:Avion9983, and those names are different enough that I'm fine sharing two letters. Plus, demanding one whole letter out of the just 26 in the alphabet be reserved for JUST ME would be rude, weird, and seriously contradicting point three.)

Thanks for your consideration! And, uh, sorry for making everyone read through a whole paragraph of reasons why I want a different name...
