Usernames for administrator attention

This page is intended for reports of usernames that are blatant and serious violations of the username policy requiring an immediate block. Reports will be assessed in accordance with the username policy, the UAA instructions, and the following bullet points. Please ensure you are familiar with the assessment criteria before making a report.

  1. Except in the instance of an egregious name violation, please do not report accounts with no edits or those who have not edited in the preceding 2 weeks.
  2. Real names are permitted, except when the editor implies they are someone other than themselves, such as impersonating a notable living person.
  3. Promotional names require evidence to be blocked. Do not report a username merely because it "appears" promotional.
  4. For libellous usernames or usernames that contain another editor’s nonpublic personal information, please contact an oversighter and do not report it here.
  5. Discuss less-serious violations with the user on their talk page so that they can rename or abandon their account in good faith. Templates such as {{Uw-username}} or {{Uw-coi-username}} may be used. If, after discussion with a user, the problem still seems unresolved, a username request for comment may be in order.
  6. Do not leave a username warning on a user's talk page and also immediately report them here. Do one or the other, and not both simultaneously.
  7. Volunteers and patrollers are asked to remove reports that have been declined, are bot-reported false positives or are otherwise non-blatant or stale reports.

Not a violation of the username policy. How is this a promotional username? There's also no contribs or filter log entries to go by here. Can you explain? --Hammersoft (talk) 18:32, 27 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Being discussed with the user. Guess I'm not the only one granting boons. --Deepfriedokra (talk) 12:18, 28 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Yeah, that was me. I'm still in doubt as to whether CocoCola7 would be an acceptable username. I know that CocoColaPR would not, that Gill Bates at CocoCola would be, but I don't know if a number or two added to a company name counts as a "Mike at Widgets USA"-type thing. My feeling is not, but I didn't block this one. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 18:21, 28 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Not a violation of the username policy. The "CMat" prefix identifies this as a personal account. See WP:ISU. There is a potential paid editing issue which I will bring up on their talk page. --Hammersoft (talk) 17:55, 28 September 2021 (UTC)[]
