Similar Username check[edit]

I wanted to change my username from "Modded" to "Thehedgeh0g", but I accidentally misspelled it(I missed the e on the end of "hedge", and so my current username is "Thehedgh0g". However, now that I request the appropriately spelled username, that's rejected for "being too similar to other, existing names". I don't understand this, as I feel that my current username could be considered also too similar, as I didn't notice the spelling error, even though I use the username myself on other sites. Therefore, I'd just like an explanation as to why the second request was rejected. Thanks!

Its weird that My Account on Commons was blocked while in Indonesian Wikipedia not[edit]

Hello, please unblock me on Wikimedia Commons, because it's the only Wikipedia version that blocked me, while Indonesian Wikipedia set me free. Please, because i really want to change my username. Thank you Zaar Dinn (talk) 17:18, 17 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Zaar Dinn it's not an right place for request for unblocking in commons. You have need to contact with commons checkuser team. —MdsShakil (talk) 19:13, 17 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
