Your usernameEdit

Hello, Aleksandrit. Cyrillic characters can be difficult to enter (for most users). Could you therefore change your username, or ask a bureaucrat (ours are Archer7,Blockinblox and Vector) to rename you? - thank you.--Eptalon 09:19, 22 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello. I understand, that for you cyrillic symbols are not clear. But I was registered on name Александрит in many wiki. Username it is possible to copy and insert there where it is necessary. The some people use hieroglyphs and anything :) --Александрит 21:32, 22 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Unfortunately, you must also change your username, Cyrillic characters are not permitted, please let me know what username you would like me to change it to. Thanks! Archer7 - talk 21:54, 22 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Why Cyrillic characters are not permitted? --Александрит 10:20, 23 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Cyrillic characters are not permitted because it does make things difficult when typing in your username. As you say, we can copy and paste but that can get rather annoying. We also don't allow it because western users may not have the necessary language packs installed to view your name in Cyrillic characters, and just get random rubbish from their browser.

млин... I would be happy to change my nickname, but I registered under it in numerous wiki projects. I wish everywhere have the same nickname. If you want, please refer to the bureaucrats of all these wiki-projects to change my nickname (it would be too costly for me and you are interested in this) :) At a single change in simple-wiki, I disagree. --Александрит 11:30, 23 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm afraid that does sound rather a lot of work for me to go around and sort out your usernames across everything for you. When you join a local project, you do need to comply with local policies. Once your username is changed, this page and your userpage will redirect to your new username if that helps. Archer7 - talk 11:54, 23 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
What you think about m:Single login specifications?
And I still do not understand why you drew attention to my nickname? Activity here, I still will not show. Just occasionally will put interwiki. That is cause for special treatment will not be me, and my nickname to remain undetected. For all these reasons, I do not understand the meaning to change my nickname. (Sorry my en-1) --Александрит 12:26, 23 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for complying with the policy, you've now been renamed! Archer7 - talk 17:55, 29 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Due to recent problems we have had, we no longer allow photographs on Simple Wikipedia userpages. I have therefore removed the image, and I will delete it from the history. Please see Wikipedia:Simple talk#Important notice for more information. Thanks! Archer7 - talk 21:54, 22 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No. The image thing is not community aggreed upon, Gwib and I disagree. Ionas Rand [i.'ɔ.na.sız tɔk] 03:26, 23 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have now restored the photo, as this was disputed as Ionas68224 says. Archer7 - talk 10:47, 23 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
