Rename Requests

Please post any requests to have your account renamed under this topic header.

Same as Tain, myin was not on teh list either >.< --Shadowphoenix 18:17, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

GW-Wolfie to Wolfie_

Does it help if we each start a sub-section under "Rename Requests", ie easier to see who's requesting what change? Anyway, I would like to request "GW-Wolfie" user name be changed to "Wolfie_" (note, the underscore at the end). I have used that combination before on other forums, wikis etc where a name conflict existed, so would like to retain this identity. Regards Wolfie Wolfie sig.jpg (talk|contribs) 06:15, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Could I please have an update on why this request has not been enacted, has been nearly 3 days and while I note many other requests below have been done, mine has not, and would like some feedback on what's the hold up. As noted back on April 30, 2008 (see comment here, my original user name of "Wolfie" apparently conflicted with an existing Wikia account (why someone created an account with my user name is unknown, but that account has absolutely nothing to do with me, maybe it's inactive?).
Anyway, if it's possible I can be reverted back to "Wolfie" (ie, remove that other account and rename "GW-Wolfie" back to just "Wolfie"), that would be great! Otherwise, can settle for "Wolfie_" (with the underscore), just by the gods please ensure I do not loose credit for all the edits I have made on this wiki. I am getting rather keen to fix up my userspace articles etc, but require my user name be sorted out first, so some form of feedback would be appreciated as to what's to happen, maybe I can provide further informtion. Wolfie Wolfie sig.jpg (talk|contribs) 02:56, 13 May 2008 (UTC) PS: I note my idea of creating a sub-section per user request caught on :)
Sorry for the delay. The underscore at the end was a bit problematic, as we don't allow user names that end in a _. Fortunately, Wolfie turned out to be inactive since 2006, so you're now back to your old username. :) Please check whether everything is in order. Again, sorry for the delay and thanks for bringing some order to this page. Makes my work a lot easier. :P --TOR 12:21, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
That is wonderful news about being able to revert back to my original user name, sadly however, something has gone terribly wrong!!
  • I cannot login as "Wolfie" (had to login in as "GW-Wolfie" to post this message)
  • A search of Special:Listusers shows there is no "Wolfie" account ("Wolfie 1972" and "Wolfie pt" are not to do with me), the user name "GW-Wolfie" does however still show up and as noted above, is what I had to use to login
  • My user page is incorrectly located under User:GW-Wolfie (yes, there is a redirect from User:Wolfie to User:GW-Wolfie, but that's not a solution)
  • My contributions however do appear correctly under Special:Contributions/Wolfie (please tell me I've not lost them!?)
So it's appearing like the renaming of my account back from "GW-Wolfie" to plain "Wolfie" has failed part way through or something to that effect. Needless to say, I am now getting a little concerned about if my account has become corrupted, but am hoping Wikia staff will be able to perhaps manually correct this situation in a way that keeps everything intact, help!! --Wolfie Wolfie sig.jpg (talk|contribs) 00:03, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
It could be similar to the situation that Tain listed below. He had the same problem as you, and re-created the account, and kept his contributions. That would be my suggestion. -- Isk8.png (T/C) 01:36, 14 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the suggestion, I wouldn't want to jeopardise anything Wikia might be working on to correct the situation, so am waiting to hear what they recommend. Also, if I were to re-create an account under the original user name, would then lose my configuration and far more importantly, my current watchlist (which contains many 100s of pages), would be a major time-expense to re-watch all those topics again. Maybe if TOR can confirm beforehand that my original watchlist can be recovered (re, the Watchlist recovery option below), then might be an option, assuming there's no other "cleaner" way of renaming my account back from GW-Wolfie to Wolfie (ie, expected it would have just been the same process used to rename the account in the first place?). --Wolfie Wolfie sig.jpg (talk|contribs) 01:12, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

My watchlist is wiped. According to WoW folks, it has happened to them to but it is retrievable. I would like my 7.5k watchlist entries back. -User:PanSola(talk/history) 18:34, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

My watch list has been wiped too! D: -- MaySig.png Warw/Wick 18:37, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
My watchlist (of like 3 things I dont care about) was wiped even though I didn't get a rename, as was my preferences.Entrea SumataeEntrea 18:43, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
Only my prefs got wiped. That only takes 3 minutes, so I must be in luck...--- Ohaider!-- (s)talkpage 18:45, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, preferences are no biggie to reset. I'm not customised too much. Although this does explain why I got an email about a talkpage change all of a sudden...Entrea SumataeEntrea 18:46, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

Watchlist Recovery Requests

In most cases, it should be possible to recover watchlists. Please sign your name to the following list if you have lost your watchlist and need to have it recovered:

Sign with * ~~~

im so confused

User:JediRogue redirects to User:GW-JediRogue. But Special:Mypage goes to User:JediRogue also, I have no idea whats going on with my preferences. I miss my edit count. I have no idea if I redid my sig right, and RC looks all funny. —JediRogue 21:43, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

Lol'd thats because wikia did what they did to me to you. you're user:jedirogue AND user:gw-jedirogue. -- MaySig.png Warw/Wick 21:44, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
Everyone's preferences appear to have been reset. Felix Omni 21:47, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
Mine weren't.. :p.. -- MaySig.png Warw/Wick 21:48, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
It also seems to have reset signatures- that's going to frustrate a lot of users. Well done, Wikia. Felix Omni Signature.png 21:49, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
Mine were unaffected as well.--AlariSig.png 22:05, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
Preferences seem to have been copied from Wikia to GuildWiki; my signature and settings from my Wikia account seem to have been applied here as well, instead of being left as they were. (I kept my preferences pretty much the same on both, so getting my slightly different signature back was easy enough.)
The one thing that confuses me is, in my preferences, it lists my edit count as 1, yet if you check Special:Editcount/Jioruji Derako, I still have all 2,869 intact. (my preferences listed a zero before, but I just finished making an edit a little further down the page.) Is there a way to un-reset user preferences? --GEO-logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 06:37, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
It may take a few days for all of the database information to sync up. If your preferences still do not have the proper edit count within the next few days, post another message. --KyleH (talk) 06:11, 13 May 2008 (UTC)
So theoretically, given a few days to sort itself out, the edit count/user ID/things like that should just update and fix themselves? As of today, my edit count is 4, I'll check on it again in a couple of days and post the results. --GEO-logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 12:11, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Image Redirects

So when will they start working again?--AlariSig.png 22:55, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

THAT'S why they were seeming so strange. Only the image ones are broken.Entrea SumataeEntrea [Talk] 22:57, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
We are aware of this issue and are working to fix it. --KyleH (talk) 06:11, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

might be useful

here is a record of all the userpages which were moved because they were renamed. Note that this left behind redirects in most cases. Not sure what that really means about the owners of the page that was left behind or what... anyway Special:Contributions/Move page scriptJediRogue 21:32, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

I've been through that list, RT. It is HUGE! I think the actual percentage of active users affected is minimal though. -- Isk8.png (T/C) 15:57, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
