Need help fixing typo in uploaded photo[edit | edit source]

Uploaded Shakuntala3.jpg

Now can't correct my typo in CC-BY Flickr username.

Should be "publicresourceorg"

Thanks in advance. Oriolederby (talk) 04:32, 27 August 2018 (CEST)

Hi Oriolederby, thanks for getting in touch. I just looked at the file and I can't see any difference between the name you want there and the one which is already on the image. If I've missed something, please let me know. Many thanks, DaneGeld (talk) 12:48, 27 August 2018 (CEST)
Yes it IS subtle but embarrassing. PUBIC instead of PUBLIC. Should read pubLicresourceorg. My mistake Oriolederby (talk) 13:19, 27 August 2018 (CEST)
Oops...Sorry about that. The only way I could remove that little mistake was to reupload the picture, so it still existed, and remove the version you added from the file history. The pic is still there, but the upload info is now corrected! Thanks for pointing that out Happy DaneGeld (talk) 19:26, 27 August 2018 (CEST)
Oh! I am sorry for all your trouble in fixing this. Thank you for your help. Normally I catch and fix my own mistakes, but this took your admin superpowers :-) Oriolederby (talk) 22:41, 27 August 2018 (CEST)

Question about my username[edit | edit source]

I would like to change the case of a letter in my username Oriolederby so that it reads OrioleDerby. I do not understand the procedure outlined in the Requests for Admins link. This is a very low priority, but I made a mistake when I typed it in at registration and would like to change it if possible. Thanks, I know how busy you are fighting vandalism and working on important behind-the-scenes things here on Vikidia. Oriolederby (talk) 20:48, 28 August 2018 (CEST)

Hi Oriolederby :) You are quite welcome to change your username, all you need to do is click this link and edit section 1 of the page; copy the text exactly as you see there, the parts reading Current Name, New Name and Reason. Paste them below the 4 dashes (----), and then write what you want next to each item. When you have finished typing, remember to sign the request - even though you've already given your name! Just remember to leave the text at the top of the section exactly where it is. If you need anything else, drop a reply and I'll give you a hand. DaneGeld (talk) 21:11, 28 August 2018 (CEST)
 Done. The user "Oriolederby" has been renamed to "OrioleDerby". Linedwell (talk) 07:58, 29 August 2018 (CEST)
Many thanks to all. I really appreciate it. Especially given the important stuff you are doing for the good of the Vikidia community. Much obliged to you all. OrioleDerby (talk) 03:51, 31 August 2018 (CEST)
