Usernames should not be promotional, misleading, or offensive

  • promotional usernames:
    • containing existing company, organization, group, or website names (including non-profit organizations)
    • containing domain names or email addresses
  • misleading usernames:
    • close to names of celebrities, notable world figures or events, or known Wikipedians
    • containing words like "bot" or "script" which refer to automated editing processes
    • containing titles like "admin" or "sysop", which imply authority on Wikipedia
  • offensive usernames

For technical reasons, a username cannot include the #, / and \ symbols. Any underscores will be converted to spaces. The first letter of a username is automatically capitalized.

Registering a free account takes only a few seconds and has many benefits. Scroll down to the form below, and simply choose a username and password and (optionally) enter your email address, then click "create account".

Choose a username/password

  • Choose an inoffensive username that identifies you personally, either using your real name, or an alias of your choosing. Do not use your email address or domain name, or the name of any organization you're associated with.
  • For your own security, please choose a strong password that would be difficult to guess. A typical "strong" password is at least 8 characters long, contains a mix of upper and lower case letters and numbers, and is not made up mostly of dictionary words and names.
