Hi - it seems that you wish to change your alias/etc to Kiralea? If so, please do so by adding your new info from Rapytur over to Kiralea before setting it as a redirect, rather than blanking the page and redirecting to an empty article. I have moved Rapytur to Kiralea - this may be easier to edit out old information and include newer information than blanking and creating a new article from scratch.

Reply to[edit]

I need to really to know how to reply to you guys when you speak to me. I'm still a bit new at the site. The reason I tried to BLANK all of the pages is because I'm giving my entire character a revamp. I kind of erased the name Rapytur from my aliases and the like so... :P -Rapture.

Changing username?[edit]

I was wondering if it was possible to wipe out the names Rapture, Kiralea, and Rapytur. I sort of need to do a complete overhaul (perhaps even change my log in name as well) since I don't GO by Rapture anymore (too old of a name and I didn't even make it up.. I wanted to name my character / alias to something that I made :D not something a friend made for me). So yeah... if you could help me out, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks for your time! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rapture (talkcontribs) .

We don't generally "wipe out" anything; assuming you don't want your articles completely erased (content-wise), then those names will still serve as redirects, and likely be included as a '____ was formerly known as...' note in the new article. You're free, however, to redo your current article as you see fit to reflect these changes, and an admin can move the page to your new name once you've decided. As for changing your username, click the "my preferences" link in the upper right hand corner and you can change your nickname there. Spaz Kitty 16:10, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
Actually I wanted the pages completely wiped if it was okay with you. :D I really want to remake everything. And I meant if I could change the username. Sorry! Not trying to be a pain in the butt but I sort of gave my designs a complete overhaul. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rapture (talkcontribs) .
Well, to echo Spaz, we don't usually just wipe pages. What will probably be done is you can remake your page and such and we'll just have Rapyture and whatnot redirect to you. This is just for people looking for you, it's kinda like a forwarding address! --Kendricks Redtail 20:26, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Ohhh. Uh. What about the user name problem? Would it be an issue if I registered another name? :)

I don't see a problem with that, since you're intending to move accounts rather than share them. Unfortunately we don't have the ability to re-attribute edits (or to remove the existing account) which would be the ideal solution, but we can always put a big #REDIRECT [[User:NewName]] on the old user page. --GreenReaper(talk) 20:31, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

That would be great actually! I really appreciate the help! I'm going to do that now.

I'll assume I should allow you folks to take over with the forwarding stuff? Again, sorry to be a bother. :)
