Information.svg
Your account, UsernameBlocked has been blocked from changing Wikipedia because the username may not meet our username policy. This is not anything against you, and you are encouraged to choose a new account name that meets our guidelines. We hope to see you changing again soon!
If you feel this block was made wrongly, you may quickly and easily ask to be unblocked.

Our username policy says how you should choose your username. Put simply, you should not have a username that people find offensive, advertises a real world group or company, or is confusing (for example, if it pretends to be another user).

If you have already made changes and wish to keep your changes under a new name you may ask us to rename your account. If you want to, please:

1. Ask for an unblock
Type {{unblock|reason}} on your user talk page which you should still be able to change. You want to change your username, so say that. If an administrator thinks that you should be unblocked, he or she will do so for you, normally for 24 hours.
2. Ask for a change in username
Go here and ask for a new name. It will be changed by one of our bureaucrats when they see the request.

If you have made very little or no changes, then it would be a lot easier to just create a new account.

Please note that the software Wikipedia uses may automatically block you from creating a new account. This is a mistake, and should not have happened. If this has happened, use the unblock template as explained above, and an administrator will fix it for you.

If you think you should not have been blocked, add {{unblock|your reason here}} on your user talk page or email the administrator who blocked you. You can also send an e-mail to simple-admins-l@lists.wikimedia.org and an administrator will look at your reason and reply.

Usage

Please refer to the index of test templates before using any template on user talk pages to warn a user. Applying the best template available for your purpose may help reduce confusion from the message you are sending. Note: Only administrators can block users; adding a block template does not constitute a block. Go to WP:AN to request that a user be blocked.

Please remember to substitute the template by using {{subst:UsernameBlocked}} rather than {{UsernameBlocked}}.
  • Although this template must be substituted in the user talk page, it has also been designed to display properly when substitution is not possible.

This template uses a parser function. To give greater detail to your message, you may give a specific reason for the block, and auto-include your signature.

{{subst:UsernameBlocked|reason=For a different reason|sig=yes}}

This is an indefinite block template, so it does not require any time or indef parameters.

Other templates

  • {{UsernameHardBlocked}} for blatant username violations or spamming with a promotional username
