Changing Username[edit source]

Hi admins, would you please change my username from Tiggger to "Untitled" (if used, "Untitled_Paint")? My account is more than one year old. I would also like to ask if I can set up a new page for the Microsoft PC Manager, as I have got nearly all the installation packages of the builds. Tiggger (talk) 14:28, 1 December 2022 (UTC)

No one mentioned you this before, but remember to sign your comments using 4 tildes: ~~~~ 763004 (💬 T | ⏳ S) 20:18, 30 November 2022 (UTC)
Denied. Your account might be more than a year old, but you made no contributions to the site and in fact didn't edit at all before this request. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 14:39, 1 December 2022 (UTC)

I want to change my name[edit source]

I want to change my name to Rage4Win. My account is 6 months old. Nova22 (talk) 16:03, 19 October 2022

Change my username please (again)[edit source]

Hey, can any admin please change my username from "Bubblebeam" to "Uncle Captain"? Because I am starting to not like my current one anymore. Uncle Captain (talk) 01:11, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

According to Ryu (Me ) on the Discord server. You'll be able to change your name in Mid-september. The rules changed to one rename per year. Xeno (talk) 01:43, 26 April 2022 (UTC)
That's ok, I can wait until 3 September 2022. :) Uncle Captain (talk) 01:59, 26 April 2022 (UTC)
@Xeno But still, the guidelines still say 6 months. Uncle Captain (talk) 02:00, 26 April 2022 (UTC)
It actually says "If your account is at least 6 months old and you haven't already done so less than a year ago". So yeah, sorry. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 02:04, 26 April 2022 (UTC)
Alright, its been a year since my last rename. Can I please be changed from “Bubblebeam” to “Uncle Captain?” Uncle Captain (talk) 03:58, 3 September 2022 (UTC)
✔️ Done. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 10:51, 4 September 2022 (UTC)

Automoderation request[edit source]

I don't know if it will be rejected or success, but I want to be automoderated. From the abuse logs (which shows my edit faults) I will be more careful when edit pages. - Someone (talk) 15:06, 29 August 2022 (UTC)

The automoderated group is deprecated. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 10:54, 4 September 2022 (UTC)

Change my username[edit source]

This might seem like a simple change, but it's been a year since I joined the wiki. Can admins change my username to "NaraInsider1694"? Nara Insider (talk) 04:39, 3 September 2022 (UTC)

✔️ Done. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 10:51, 4 September 2022 (UTC)

Rename me[edit source]

Can you please rename me to iDrxp1170 (for parity with my Xbox Live account)? Because Someone was actually my placeholder name because I can't think of any name. - Someone (talk) 01:13, 4 September 2022 (UTC)

This kind of request can only be in the Administrators’ noticeboard. Uncle Captain (talk) 01:19, 4 September 2022 (UTC)
❌ Your account must be at least 6 months old, which yours is not. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 10:51, 4 September 2022 (UTC)
I know, but can you remember my request to change on November? -- 11:15, 9 September 2022 (UTC)
It is 2022-10-17 now, already 6 months, can i be changed to Terminal64? 12:04, 17 October 2022 (UTC)

Template:Delete hasn't been updated since July 2020, Am I missing something? --Sporb (talk) 13:15, 30 September 2022 (UTC)
No, I mean that template is assiocated with Articles for deletion Once the template got removed, means that AfD has been closed. This time, AfD wasn't closed, so it's bannable -- —— Preceding SIGNED comment added by Windows logo (2021).svg Someone {Ic fluent person 12 filled.svg talk Ic fluent list 20 filled.svg contribs Ic fluent mail 20 filled.svg email me } 15:35, 30 September 2022 (UTC)

Well, there's a new problem. Both and their "friend",, made some unnecessary edits, like adding bugs that don't actually occur on a specific build to build pages, changing the minimum/maximum version of Windows that was supported by a program (Deborahh1995 and their 92.53 IPs also do this) and adding unnecessary text to the start of a section on Mac OS X build pages. However, when other users reverted their edits, they will eventually go crazy and start reverting others' edits (causing undo wars), and for some of the time, their undo summaries are in Korean (which most people in the wiki don't understand). So, the only solution to this would be to block these IPs, since their behavior is becoming an issue for some users. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 04:24, 17 January 2023 (UTC)

Yeah, and also they keeps abusing the word "New changes", so I'm thinking Deborahh1995 and are sockpuppet accounts(?) So, this is a huge problem. —— Preceding SIGNED comment added by Windows logo (2021).svg Someone {Ic fluent person 12 filled.svg talk Ic fluent list 20 filled.svg contribs Ic fluent mail 20 filled.svg email me } | 05:35, 17 January 2023 (UTC)
Deborahh1995 and their IPs also added unneeded info to build pages and sometimes a section on a build page that is not related to the added info, so it's also a red flag. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 05:49, 17 January 2023 (UTC)
That's not what suckpuppeting is. They are just editing while logged out, there is nothing wrong with that. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 14:23, 17 January 2023 (UTC)
Thankfully, one of these IPs ( did get banned due to undo warring. If the second IP ( does something similar to the first IP, they should be banned too. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 12:47, 17 January 2023 (UTC)
IP 211 is most likely to get banned for a year. Windows logo (2006).svg 763004 (TalkSandbox) 14:18, 17 January 2023 (UTC)
That's not up to you to decide, thankyouverymuch. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 14:21, 17 January 2023 (UTC)

Page protection request[edit source]

As every Hall of Shame article is protected, BetaWiki:Hall_of_Shame/Windows_Server_2012_R2_build_9458 should be protected too. --Sporb (talk) 15:00, 30 September 2022 (UTC)

And BetaWiki:Hall_of_Shame/Windows_8.1_build_9458 as well --Sporb (talk) 15:17, 30 September 2022 (UTC)

Delete my talk page and remove the block[edit source]

First, sorry for editing my user talk page without looking the guidelines. I want two things:

  • Delete my talk page.
  • Remove the block that prevents me from editing my user pages.

Fatih4 (talk) 08:11, 9 October 2022 (UTC)

First, you just editing too much on your userpage, so, maybe you'll need to contribute to the articles. Second, asking for unblock isn't a good idea. Many user asked for unblock but failed. So, sorry. -- 10:48, 9 October 2022 (UTC)
Your block doesn't prevent you from contributing to the site, which is, umm, the main point of the wiki. Maybe do that first and then we can later talk about lifting your user space block. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 14:57, 9 October 2022 (UTC)

Rename request[edit source]

Can admins change my username to simply "Brennan"? I don't like my current one... - Brennan1234567890 (talk) 20:28, 14 October 2022

Changed my mind, guys... Brennan1234567890 (Talk page | Contributions) 01:34, 23 November 2022 (UTC)

Block[edit source]

He is vandalizing the Windows 11 build 25236.1000 and Windows Vista page. Block him if he continues with more vandalism. 14:34, 11 November 2022 (UTC)

Why? Windows logo (2006).svg 763004TalkSandbox 14:34, 10 January 2023 (UTC)

Name change[edit source]

Could you please change my name to "ClassicMacOSGuy1067" please? PewDiePie 2021 (talk) 12:49, 12 November 2022 (UTC)

✔ Ryuzaki changed your name. 16:36, 14 November 2022 (UTC)

Stop protecting Windows Next Valley and Next Valley name[edit source]

We should stop protecting these names, since we got news about it. NexineTech2022

It's to prevent vandalism. These pages will be created by vandalizers. 00:23, 19 November 2022 (UTC)
I keep checking this topic. So whenever I notice one of the admins say yes, I will create the page instantly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by NexineTech2022 (talkcontribs) 03:14, 19 November 2022 (UTC)
Speedy deletion reason: vandalism or hoax (vandalizers will create those pages and then say bad things about BetaWiki, maybe) 03:14, 19 November 2022 (UTC)
I am making a sandbox, so check it when I'm done. — Preceding unsigned comment added by NexineTech2022 (talkcontribs)

No, it's way too early. Making an article for a single concept art is just ridiculous. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 13:55, 19 November 2022 (UTC)

Block user[edit source]


This user keeps saying that Office 2021 former name is Office 2022 (that does not make sense at all). Also they keeps adding 9788 and 9795 (those build are regarded as not-notable fake) back to the Windws 10 1507 article. Their edit summary contains toxic words that needs to be hidden. I have three suggestions:

—— Preceding SIGNED comment added by Windows logo (2021).svg Someone {Ic fluent person 12 filled.svg talk Ic fluent list 20 filled.svg contribs Ic fluent mail 20 filled.svg email me }

That user has finally been banned (what a relief). NaraInsider1694 (talk) 13:38, 1 December 2022 (UTC)

Image Upload Ban Lift[edit source]

Can you lift the ban about not uploading images? I promise i will upload screenshots without custom graphics, without my face, and as always, 1024x768. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheRealToriel2011 (talkcontribs)

Oppose. It's only a month, and you can live for a month. Plus all your screenshots are just reuploads of already good, existing images. Also, PLEASE, for the love of God, sign your posts. You can do it by adding the following to the end of your comment: --~~~~ --Sporb (talk) 03:41, 22 December 2022 (UTC)
Oppose. As pointed out by Sporb, your screenshots are just reuploads of existing images that are already good enough. Plus, it's only a month, and you can live for a month (to be exact, you can live until January of 2023). NaraInsider1694 (talk) 04:47, 22 December 2022 (UTC)
Oppose. I assume that you will continue to reupload images. Also, you can wait for 1 month since it's almost the end of 2022 (I refer the end of 2022 as December 31st 2022) --User3412 (talk) 14:47, 22 December 2022 (UTC)
Just have patience, you can wait 19 days. Xeno (talk) 14:53, 22 December 2022 (UTC)
Oppose. Strangely, this wiki is confused that you weren't blocked, but you are blocked, TheRealToriel2011. If you keep complaining about your block, your block could get worse, TheRealToriel2011. 763004 (💬 T | ⏳ S) 18:46, 22 December 2022 (UTC)
But i want to upload some images to the Virtual PC page. It was shot with AeroShot. And i'm not reuploading. --TheRealToriel2011 (talk) 04:47, 23 December 2022 (UTC)
You don't need to do that. Also, no one was going to trust you due to the actions you have done in the past. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 06:45, 23 December 2022 (UTC)
Just think about 1024x768 is how much cm and how much cm is a website's photo. 06:24, 27 December 2022 (UTC)
Your ban has almost expired. Wait for 5 days, TRT2011. 763004 (💬 T | ⏳ S) 17:42, 4 January 2023 (UTC)
Warning icon TRT2011, it's near the end of your ban. Wait for less than a day. TRT2011, I am warning you, if you continue to upload bad images, you may be blocked from editing. 763004 (💬 T | ⏳ S) 20:39, 9 January 2023 (UTC)
Warning icon TRT2011, your ban is almost done. I am warning you, if you upload a bad image again, you may be blocked from editing without further notice. Windows logo (2006).svg 763004TalkSandbox 14:32, 10 January 2023 (UTC)
Can we not backseat mod, thanks. Xeno (talk) 14:42, 10 January 2023 (UTC)

Changing username[edit source]

Hi, can admins please change my username to "Lixivite"? Because my current username was picked when I was too influenced by Chinese stuff and I want a neutral username. My account is almost 4 years old. rebrand soon (talk) 18:50, 31 December 2022 (UTC)

✔️ Done. Ryuzaki changed your name. Windows logo (2006).svg 763004TalkSandbox 16:37, 10 January 2023 (UTC)

Block[edit source]

This IP is currently using Draft:OneCoreUpdateOS as a sandbox, which is not allowed on BetaWiki. I've been taking care of this guy since several hours ago, so I needed the IP to be blocked, because it's really painful for me to take care of them. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 14:04, 21 January 2023 (UTC) suddenly stopped editing the page, so I decided to cancel this request. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 15:09, 21 January 2023 (UTC)
It has now been sorted. Next time, don't waste your time undoing their edits if they keep spam editing. Just have some patience and wait for staff to deal with them. Xeno (talk) 19:06, 21 January 2023 (UTC)
I am not doing anything important (aside from undoing their edits) because I was in my free time, so I think what I'm doing in the IP's active hours doesn't count as wasting my time at all. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 00:04, 22 January 2023 (UTC)

I wonder why he did that?!. 2601:981:4401:1CC0:C168:6F5A:7CFC:8384 15:51, 4 March 2023 (UTC)

Why can't I upload some images?[edit source]

So, I am trying to upload "File:Windows-6.1.7850.0-Webcam.png" and "File:Windows-6.1.7850.0-UserIconOnTaskbar.png" to Windows 8 build 7850, however, "File:Windows-6.1.7850.0-Webcam.png" does not show up on my Gallery, and for "File:Windows-6.1.7850.0-UserIconOnTaskbar.png", it appears in my Gallery, but does not show the name prompt when clicking on it. I think that has to be a res. issue. --Shams1917 (talk) 05:43, 6 March 2023 (UTC)

Nvm, some IP helped me on "File:Windows-6.1.7850.0-Webcam.png" --Shams1917 (talk) 05:48, 6 March 2023 (UTC)
Nvm, everything works now. That was weird. --Shams1917 (talk) 07:13, 7 March 2023 (UTC)

Should I make an archival page?[edit source]

Like for archiving deleted pages? Would that be a good idea? NitroGD 21:21, 11 March 2023 (UTC)

Do you have a case where it would be used in? Term24 (talk) 22:08, 11 March 2023 (UTC)
Maybe for deleted pages, it would just make sense to preserve history. NitroGD 22:10, 11 March 2023 (UTC)
No. Pages get deleted for a reason. Making an "archival" page would circumvent that since the page would remain accesible and reachable in one way or another. Also, staff still has access to the content of deleted pages. If anyone has a leigitimate reason to retrieve such, just ask us. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 23:06, 11 March 2023 (UTC)
Unless you're staff or an active viewer of the Internet Archive you most likely won't look at another page BillyHatcher2012 wrote by himself ever again. Windows logo (1985).svg MyFaceNeverWhenTALK.EXE 01:07, 12 March 2023 (UTC)

Another request (Sorry)[edit source]

Can someone rename the "File:Screenshot 2023-03-11 162414.png" name from "Screenshot 2023-03-11 162414.png" to "Windows7-6.1.7082-Winver.png"? I forgot to rename the file. --Shams1917 (talk) 03:57, 12 March 2023 (UTC)

✔️ Done. NaraInsider1694 (talk) 06:13, 12 March 2023 (UTC)

does this count as breaking the rules? (2600:1011:A120:8E5E:B849:684C:69DA:A83E|2600:1011:A120:8E5E:B849:684C:69DA:A83E on pc)[edit source]
