Hello, I'm a recently appointed admin over at the Cyber Nations wiki and I got a request by someone to rename her own user account (User:Melisande (Media)) because she wanted it changed to remove the (Media) portion. So being it was a personal request for renaming her own page I renamed it User:Melisande like she asked for. It was then I realized that none of her contribs etc carried over with it being renamed. After that I found out that she should have gone to Special:Contact/rename-account to have it done properly. I was wondering if there was anything that could be done to rectify the issue at hand or if it's in higher hands now :3.

Any help would be much appreciated.   RogalDorn  talk    07:27, Monday, 20 February 2012 (EST)

Email them anyway, renaming a userpage doesn't actually change the account name. --Light Daxter - Talk 12:47, February 20, 2012 (UTC)

Probably a good idea to move her user page back to its original title in the meantime, though. ;) The 888th Avatar (talk) 12:53, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
I reverted her user page back to the original and told her she has to go to Special:Contact/rename-account if she is still interested.   RogalDorn  talk    08:16, Monday, 20 February 2012 (EST)
