|LADIES AND GENTLEMEN (and Uncyclopedians) please note there is a new procedure for asking for a name change.
   
1. Read [[User:Sannse/Name_change_lecture_no._3b|this]].<br />
+
1. Go to [[Special:Contact/rename-account]]
2. Ask for the change ''[[w:c:community:Message_Wall:Sannse|on my Community Central message wall]]''. If you want your Uncyclopedia name to match a rest-of-Wikia name, please be sure to leave the message with your rest-of-Wikia account. <br />
 
3. Confirm you want the change by saying so on this page, make sure you are logged in to the account you want to change. Please also confirm that you have read [[User:Sannse/Name_change_lecture_no._3b|that]]. <br />
 
4. Wait 2 working days<br />
 
5a. Rejoice in your new name <u>'''or'''</u> <br />
 
5c. Grumble that sannse has missed your message.
 
   
If 5c, then please use [[Special:Contact]] to get the attention of me or one of my colleagues.
+
The simplicity of it all! All hail the great user database merge!
 
Note that I won't necessarily see messages here if you haven't done step 2. Please me sure to message me on Community Central ''first''. (It's also worth saying that it's safer to leave other messages there too... Uncyclopedia's separate user database means that I don't get notifications of messages here when I'm on other wikis).
 
 
If I've deleted a request, and you still want the change, please follow the above. This time I'll sort it, promise!
 
 
Thanks -- {{User:Sannse/Sig}} 04:24, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

==While you are here, I have a question for you==
+
==Confirmation==
 
I'm not sure if this is an uncyc issue or a wikia thing, so I thought I'd ask. The search bar in the corner, it used to be that if you typed in a username in the search, (ie user:"fillintheblank") it would take you to the user page. Now, I've found that when you do that, if there is an article that is similar in title to the userpage, it automatically takes you to the article instead. The example I'm seeing, is user:Diane. When you type that in search, instead of taking it to the userpage, even clicking on the dropdown takes you directly to an article. Did wikia change the way the search bar works a while back, or is this just some weird bug? {{User:Mrthejazz/sig}} 03:06, October 11, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
:Humm... we've changed parts of it a while back, but not that part. I think it needs looking at by someone with a better knowledge of the search work than I have. Please can you use [[Special:Contact]] to send in a bug report? Thanks -- {{User:Sannse/Sig}} 22:46, October 12, 2012 (UTC)
 
::Hey, I had a second unrelated question. Is it possible to reskin a userpage without it effecting the whole of uncyc? (You know for cosmetic reasons?) I want to be able to change the table on the left with the links for the reskin. Just curious if its possible and how. {{User:Mrthejazz/sig}} 16:13, October 13, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
:::Yes, it's possible... but how exactly it's done is beyond me I'm afraid. I know that you need to adjust the css and possibly the js, and that will be using the MediaWiki pages for those.... but that's about the limits for me. I'd suggest you ask whoever is the wiki's current css/js guru. Or, if you don't have one at the moment, you could try [[w:c:community:Forum:Index|Community Central's forums]] or the [[w:c:monobook|Monobook Wiki]]. -- {{User:Sannse/Sig}} 21:01, October 15, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
==Help==
 
 
Is there any way I can talk with you directly (not publically). It has nothing to do with any polemics or conflict...theres just a specific question I have. --{{User:Shabidoo/sig}} 02:41, October 13, 2012 (UTC)
 
:Sure, the easiest way is to send an email via [[Special:Contact]] with my name in the subject. You can also sometimes find me on Freenode IRC under this name, usually in the evenings San Francisco time. /whois to see if I'm online. I'm also on Skype if you use that, we have a public channel there and you can PM... let me know your Skype name and I'll add you. Finally, you can go to [[w:c:community|Community Central]] and join the chat there. If I'm not online, there may be another staff member or volunteer who can tell me someone is looking for me. That chat has a private message function too. Hope that helps -- {{User:Sannse/Sig}} 21:01, October 15, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
== Changing username ==
 
 
Hi Sannse. I would want to rename my account from "Bhenry2009" to "Bhenry1990". I registered Bhenry1990 as Wikia Account when i created an account at [[:zh:|伪基百科]]. Then I cannot register Bhenry1990 [[:en:|here]]. I wish my english uncyclopedia username were same as my Wikia username and other launguage uncyclopedias'. I left a message this June. But You were not here.--[[User:Bhenry2009|Bhenry2009]] ([[User talk:Bhenry2009|talk]]) 18:42, November 2, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
:Hi, you're done. Enjoy the extra decade -- {{User:Sannse/Sig}} 23:58, November 5, 2012 (UTC)

Hi there, could you please perform a checkuser on [[User:Hipster]]? We believe he is [[User:another_n00b]] and want to find out if this is true. Thank you :) {{User:Yrtneg/etc/signature1}} 15:08, November 18, 2012 (UTC)

:Hey Yrtneg. Typically only admins are allowed to make checkuser requests. Also, since Hipster publicly confessed to being Another n00b there really isn't any doubt as far as I know that he is him. He has [[UN:OFFICE|been given some restrictions]] but is otherwise free to remain a part of our community. -- {{User:Zombiebaron/sig}} 19:21, November 18, 2012 (UTC)

:All of them are a problem :( Having a warning just for specific pages would mean the current extension would need recoding. I'm not sure if/when that could happen. I'm also not sure how it would work to minimize views. The current version is only supposed to show once per visit (or less, I'm not sure), maybe that could still work with individual pages...

I wanted to change my user name officially to just "Aleister" but have procrastinated. What would that do to my edit history, user page, etc. Would it change everything at once, or would I have to copy and paste some stuff? And I tried to create a new account as Aleister, but it says the name is already taken although when I try to log in as Aleister (I may have already done this) it says their is no user by that name. So chains for the moment until this gets cleared up. [[user:Aleister in Chains|'''Aleister''']] 12:58 3-1-'13
 
   
:Do you own the account "Aleister" that was used on de.uncyclopedia? If so, and if you can still log into it, I can give you the name here. All your edit history and so on would transfer to the new account, so that's not a problem.
+
== Global database and licence ==
:Although Uncyclopedia has a different user database from the rest of Wikia, we still consider a name "taken" if it's registered in either place. It's just so someone can't pretend to be another user by registering the same name on the other database. But if you own the de.uncyc account, I can reconcile them. If not, maybe you can go for another variation? -- {{User:Sannse/Sig}} 19:19, January 3, 2013 (UTC)

Just a minor correction, I think the link at the bottom says uncy is under CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0. I also had a question, which is: prior to this database merge, has uncy content been used in any different way than the content of other Wikia wikis, seeing they were licensed differently?

Our licensing notices include the fact that we have some wikias under an -nc license, there are a few dotted around other than Uncyc.
