Can we usurp usernames like Wikipedia? If so, can I get the account "Weird Al" Yankovic? "Weird Al" Yankovic Albuquerque! 03:29, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

I think it can be done by Wikia staff, but it requires a lot of server resources to do it, and once you change it once, you can't get another name change. --Sir Starnestommy Icons-flag-us (TalkContribsCUN) 21:01, Jan. 12, 2008
In other words, ask Sannse so she can reject you. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 23:14, Jan 12
The account you want has no edits, so it might be possible for them just to delete it so you can register again with that name. Dunno though. Spang talk 01:09, 15 Jan 2008
Delete? Plus, how can we get a hold of the account anyways? Can't an admin just delete the account then? "Weird Al" Yankovic Albuquerque! 03:34, 23 January 2008 (UTC)
Due to technical restrictions, accounts can't be deleted, and I think that password changes on inactive accounts would require less resources than a rename. --Sir Starnestommy Icons-flag-us (TalkContribsCUN) 04:07, Jan. 23, 2008
