On a forum on Wikia, I started this topic and I posted this message:

QUOTE (Me @ 21:38, 2 October 2006)

I was just wondering, has anyone thought of being able to change their username on Wikia and Wikia-wikis?

and then another user posted this:

QUOTE (Szoferka @ 21:53, 2 October 2006)

Please see Help:Create an account#Account deletion. Angela is able to do this, if it's very important for you.

and do you know what I read when I clicked the link?

Source:  Account deletion section of Wikia's Create an account help guide

It is not possible for accounts on Wikia to be deleted. However, if you decide after creating an account, particularly if you did so using your real name, that you would rather be anonymous, you may be able to have your account renamed. Please contact Angela if you require this. Renaming is not guaranteed, and may take some time to be performed. If your request is accepted, your edits will be reassigned to your new name. It is not possible for your edits to be removed entirely. You can request your user page be deleted, or you can simply redirect it to your new username.

If you have signed any talk pages, you will need to change your name on these manually. The easiest way to find these is by clicking "what links here" from your user page. There is currently no means of removing signatures from old revisions in the page history.

    • Ugh...Is ANYONE reading this?!
      • Why won't people comment?!--SWME 20:21, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
        • Er, yay? What exactly do you want us to say? And just because someone hasn't said anything doesn't mean they haven't read it. -- I need a name (Complain here) 20:23, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
          • I just want to know what people are going to tell me. What's the point of a disscussion if there aren't any people saying something? I also thought this would be an intresting topic to talk about.--SWME 20:47, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
            • First of all, people don't always respond to things right away. Secondly, we don't always have any comments beyond, "Err, yeah?" or "good to know," which aren't typically worthwhile to add. For the record, this was a "good to know" for me. jSarek 21:56, 7 October 2006 (UTC)
              • And this is like the third time somebody has had to tell you that it may take a while for a response so chill out a little. Ugluk: Destroyer of RedlinksWhine Here 02:06, 8 October 2006 (UTC)
