- DO check the box "Move user talk pages (and their subpages) to new name" if it should be moved (eg. if you rename a user. if you rename a vandal/impostor the old userpage is most likely vandalism, delete it before (or delete it afterwards but don't forget to delete the redirect if you decide to move anything that should not redirect to the new username))
- DO NOT usurp accounts with contribution
- Exception: Destructive (vandalism/spamming/trolling) accounts.
