Archived Requests


  • 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. Kjhf 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)
Thanks for the reminder, Elite! I'll ping Prod on this. ~SuperHamster Talk 00:20, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
Done. -- Prod (talk) 01:05, 10 February 2016 (UTC)


  • 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)
Bump. Inkling luke.pngInkling talk.png 17:38, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
Looks fine. Approve Kjhf Talk Contribs 18:07, 13 June 2016 (UTC)


  • I choose a name that was dull when I created the account. Oh also it's a name of a character.

TabuuandMasterCore (talk) 03:01, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

Approve. Waiting for bureaucrat to make the change. --Bzeep! talk 04:03, 3 July 2016 (UTC)


  • I suppose I just want to get a less 'pretentious' username in favour of one that I thought a while about and means something to me.
Approved. Inkling luke.png Inkling talk.png 15:39, 29 August 2017 (UTC)


  • Is my username on other websites and I don't like the way GigaSplat sounds anymore.

Kyubz Sig.png 23:45, 19 December 2017 (UTC)

Approved. A crat will make the change soon. Inkling luke.png Inkling talk.png 23:49, 19 December 2017 (UTC)
Done. Kjhf Talk Contribs 23:57, 19 December 2017 (UTC)


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

Karamatsucc 19:01, 8 March 2018 (UTC)


  • I misspelled my username (I was trying to use part of the word coelom).
Done. Heddy (talk) 15:48, 5 May 2018 (UTC)


  • I only want to rename because I would rather have Psl631 as user name instead of psl85

psl85 (Talk) 16:52, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

Done. Kjhf Talk Contribs 17:19, 25 July 2018 (UTC)


  • I think it will be much simpler to read and understand the name and it’s more accurate to my IRL name. Even though I’ve been Shachar700 in every other site I think it’s for the best to be called here by more accurate name.
    • Done, please update any associated user pages and redirects at your convenience. Kjhf Talk Contribs 18:26, 12 August 2018 (UTC)


  • I prefer the new name.
    • Done, please update any associated user pages and redirects at your convenience. Kjhf Talk Contribs 18:24, 27 November 2018 (UTC)


  • Hate my username, had it forever, but I figured I'll mask the cringe until I properly come up with something more permanent. (No, I still won't think of something decent after 6 months.)

KingAwesome467 (talk) 21:29, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Done. Kjhf Talk Contribs 13:29, 12 January 2019 (UTC)


  • I would like to change my user name so it will be the same as my YouTube and Twitter name for less confusion. It also would be much more broad since this is the Inkipedia and not the Mario Wiki.

GoombaBroadcast (talk) 04:57, 10 February 2019 (UTC)

Done Kjhf Talk Contribs 23:22, 10 February 2019 (UTC)


  • I want my user name changed to match SmashWiki's (SonicSpeed48) just so I don't get confused and insert the wrong name again.

SplatterBoi48 (talk) 00:41, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Done Kjhf Talk Contribs 23:22, 10 February 2019 (UTC)


  • Reason for changing your name: When I made this account some weeks ago I didn't really think about a good username so i just picked marina and something I was wearing. And I don't really like this username becasuse it doesn't mke sense

Marinasairpods [치즈] (talk) 02:58, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Update on Marinasairpods

Hi it's been 20 days, has my request been denied or not looked at? Awaiting for a response Marinasairpods ( 마리나의 에어팟 )의 페이지 (talk) 04:01, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

Approved. Now we just need to wait for a bureaucrat to complete your request. Heddy (talk) 21:51, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you very much, Heddy!
Done Kjhf Talk Contribs 18:19, 23 July 2019 (UTC)


  • Reason: Changed my name because it's the same as almost every other game/media I am recognized on. Also old name is too long.

SniperScopes555 (talk) 16:28, 19 February 2020 (UTC)

Approved. Inkling luke.png Inkling talk.png 19:37, 19 February 2020 (UTC)
Done Kjhf Talk Contribs 19:43, 19 February 2020 (UTC)


  • Reason: I'm rebranding my socials — less confusion over how to pronounce the name, it's still available in the places I usually hang, etc.

Hadamsj (talk) 14:29, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

Approved. Inkling luke.png Inkling talk.png 20:56, 23 April 2020 (UTC)


  • 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)
Approved. Inkling luke.png Inkling talk.png 15:41, 3 May 2020 (UTC)


  • Reason: I feel like I should finally change my name to Fumple (credit to @Bzeep for coming up with it), I use it basically everywhere else

Fumple (talk) 18:18, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

Approved Fumple (talk) 20:36, 14 June 2020 (UTC)


  • I do not enjoy this name. It is not what I wanted and the punctuation is not correct. I did not intend to have this be my name. I thought I could change my name more easily but I can't.

Oscahienfan (talk) 15:24, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

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


  • 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)

Approved. A bureaucrat will process your request soon. Luke26 (talk) 19:26, 16 October 2020 (UTC)
