વૈશ્વિક નામ બદલનારા/વારંવાર પૂછાતા પ્રશ્નો
|વારંવાર પૂછાતા પ્રશ્નો|
This is a collection of frequently asked questions by stewards/renamers.
નીતિ વિષયક પ્રશ્નો
Is UsernameRobot as username ok?
No. Such requests will generally be declined because the word is only allowed for bots in some wikis.
Can I ignore the Name too close than... warning?
You can ignore the warning in special cases. For example when a requested username contains some special characters the output of AntiSpoof might be wrong, see phabricator:T105626.
How to handle multiple rename requests
નીતિ ફક્ત ત્યારે જ નામ બદલવાની મંજૂરી આપે છે કે જ્યારે નામ બદલવા માટે કોઈ સારું કારણ હોય. આપણે સભ્યોને અનેક વખત તેમનું સભ્યનામ બદલવાની મંજૂરી આપતા નથી.
Ask the user if they really wants to change the name again and notify them that this will (likely) be the last time we change the username.
Are zero edit-renames allowed?
They are allowed. Some user use Wikipedia accounts for saving articles to reading list on Wikipedia apps and they hardly make any edit. Earlier such requests were rejected with a claim that they save server resources, but it's no longer true  and we shouldn't be worried about server resources.
Can inappropriate username be renamed?
The policy does not allow such renaming. Apart from that, it would be a lot of work to hide all rename logs globally. Such usernames should be globally hidden by a steward. You can file a request at SRG or email stewards wikimedia.org (especially for user name that should be suppressed).
શું હું +૨૦૦,૦૦૦ સંપાદનો ધરાવતા સભ્યોનું નામ બદલી શકું છું?
હા, તમે કરી શકો છો - અને એ પણ સિસ્ટમ પ્રબંધકની દેખરેખ વિના.
The rename takes longer than usual?
Yes, It might be possible that a rename job runs for hours. If the job runs for more than 3 hours, it is suggested to file a report on Phabricator.
The upload logs on commons are not updated?
This is a cache issue and should be solved after some hours. You can purge them by hand if you like.
શું નામ બદલાવ પ્રક્રિયા દરમિયાન પ્રવેશ (લોગીન) કરવો શક્ય છે?
During the rename progress it is not possible to login. Users who attempt to login will see a warning.
શું હું મારું પોતાનું નામ બદલી શકું છું?
No. You can break your account by doing so.
Other common questions
Name too similar to existing accounts or used to username of someone who got renamed
In cases of similar usernames it's best to follow ACC's similar usernames flowchart.
In case of similar usernames, it's also useful to check if the username requested was username of someone else. This can be done by going to Global rename logs and entering the username in "Previous username:" field. If username is found to be name of someone else who got renamed then such request should be declined unless it's the same user.
Technically unacceptable accounts
To know technical restrictions on usernames, please see this guide. Also MediaWiki doesn't allow registration of number only or mixed script username but antispoof will not show warning in such cases, so it's best to check them by going to Sign up page.
Right to vanish
Please see Right to vanish for such cases. It's best to leave such requests for someone who's well aware of local policies or practices and can read the language since such requests are often used to hide or obfuscate bad conduct.
Some project allow such names (i.e. Wikimedia Commons) some even don't allow names like "John at XYZ company" (i.e Italian Wikipedia) so again it's best to leave them for local renamers.
