 Usernames for administrator attention

Important! Please remember the following:

  1. This page is for usernames that are such blatant and serious problems that they need to be immediately blocked.
  2. Reports are assessed according to the username policy and the UAA instructions. Please read those pages first.
  3. Please discuss less-serious violations with the user so that they can rename or abandon their account in good faith.
  4. If, after discussion with a user, the problem still seems unresolved, a username request for comment may be in order.
  5. Please do not leave a username warning template on a user's talk page and then immediately report them here. Either discuss it with the user, or report it for admin action, but don't do both at the same time.
  6. Real names are permitted except when they imply that the editor is a specific living person they are not.
  7. Wait until the user edits. Do not report a user that hasn't edited unless they are clearly a vandal.
  8. Do not report a username unless it has been used in the last 2–3 weeks. Older accounts are likely abandoned and reports of such users will be summarily declined.
  9. Please remove any reports that have been declined (tagged with {{UAA|no}}, {{UAA|ch}}, {{UAA|ci}}, {{UAA|e}}, {{UAA|np}}, {{UAA|r}}, {{UAA|rc}}, {{UAA|rn}}, {{UAA|s}}, {{UAA|su}} or {{UAA|fp}}), and move waiting reports (those tagged with {{UAA|d}}, {{UAA|dc}}, {{UAA|m}} and {{UAA|w}}) to the holding pen. Obvious false positives reported by DeltaQuadBot and DatBot may be removed.

  • Matched: bot ?[0-9]*$ -- DQB (owner / report) 04:25, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
     Clerk note: Name may imply an unauthorized bot. Do not block accounts in which the "bot" suffix arises naturally -- DQB (owner / report) 04:25, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Nazleeahm (talk · contribs · deleted · filter log · SUL · Google) (block · soft · promo · cause · bot · hard · spam · vandal)
    Matched: Used l instead of i attempting to skip filter: nazi. Violating string: nazieeahm -- DQB (owner / report) 18:41, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
     Clerk note: Usernames that promote a controversial or potentially inflammatory point of view may be in violation of the username policy due to creating a hostile editing environment- but some real names contain the string "nazi" - especially names from the Middle East - be careful that this is not the case before blocking. -- DQB (owner / report) 18:41, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
