Your account will be renamed[edit]

Hello,

The developer team at Wikimedia is making some changes to how accounts work, as part of our on-going efforts to provide new and better tools for our users like cross-wiki notifications. These changes will mean you have the same account name everywhere. This will let us give you new features that will help you edit and discuss better, and allow more flexible user permissions for tools. One of the side-effects of this is that user accounts will now have to be unique across all 900 Wikimedia wikis. See the announcement for more information.

Unfortunately, your account clashes with another account also called {{subst:PAGENAME}}. To make sure that both of you can use Wikimedia's wikis in future, we will be renaming your account to {{subst:PAGENAME}}~{{WIKI}}. Your account will be renamed in April 2015, along with a number of other accounts.

Your account will still work as before, and you will be credited for all your edits made so far, but you will have to use the new account name when you log in. If you do not like your new username, you can request that your account be renamed again on Meta, once this takes place, or you can ask a local bureaucrat to rename you on this wiki to a free username before April 2015.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Yours,
Keegan Peterzell
