Hi. I'd like to register, but the problem is, username that matches my nickname is already... taken? I thought it's too short (2 letters), but tried other combinations and some were ok. Are the accounts made locally on separate wikis, or they are wikia global? Is there any point (and way) of trying to get proper username, or just add some random char like underscore? ~

Wikia usernames are global, but we're apparently moving to our own server sooner or later. So I'd suggest just adding something to your nick (like I use the nick AtteLynx if Atte is taken) for now, but be sure to grab your nick first when we're on our own server. Atte 07:16, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
