I want the username "Wolverine" on ComicVine so bad!

My username on Giant Bomb is Wolverine.

My username on Tested is Wolverine.
My username on Screened is Wolverine.

I desperately want to be able to have the same username on ComicVIne, but sadly, it is already taken. The thing is that the person who made the account never used it at all. The page is completely empty. Does anyone know if there is anyway I can file a claim and see if they can grant me that username. Otherwise, I'm going to have a a username not affiliated with comic books on Whiskey Media's comic book site. :(

Man, that's really lame. Especially with such a badass name like Wolverine. I'd suggest PM-ing someone who works at ComicVine.

Try PMing or DMing Dave or another admin.

I have the same problem as well. Someone took SpikeSpiegel over on animevice and doesn't even use it. :/

You could try PMing someone, but I doubt they'd change anything for you. They really shouldn't take away people's usernames, whether they use the account or not. First come first served.

Some jackhole donkey-fucker took Napalm at Comic Vine as well. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has this problem. I see somebody hasn't used the Napalm name in like, two years, and the last activity was in 2010, completing a quest or two.

FFUUUUUU

@Wolverine: Also, let me know how that filing goes for the claim and if you get granted the name and how it went. I just might look into doing that if it was successful for you.

You'll never get that username on Comic Vine. Abandon all hope.

Posted by Zimbo

Best thing you could do is probably PM Snide although I'm not sure he is willing or even able to delete accounts.

You can't imply a name like that.

His username is with a lowercase "w", what if you put it as an uppercase "W"

Posted by RandomInternetUser

If all else fails, be _Wolverine if you can use underscores.  I think you can.

Posted by Gabriel

You could be XmenOrginsWolverine.

Posted by ArchScabby

I have a better solution.  Don't go to comicvine.

Posted by super2j

you could be cvWolvine  ie comic vine wolverine or do the pm thing but i seriously doubt they will take action

Posted by SomeDeliCook

If its that important but you cant get it, just go with Logan

Posted by MisterChief

Try HughJackman.

Posted by mracoon

That's why you choose an original username so you never have to worry about someone else already having it.

You could be the new and improved Wolverine, Voleverine.
I like him a lot more.

 He has a skeleton made of Cadmium.

I know how you feel and i completely understand your frustration, Just try to talk to a mod in comicvine if you could. so that means, you have to create an account in order to pm the comicvine mods.

@Death_Unicorn: That actually made me laugh out loud. Bravo, good sir.

i doubt they would just give you the account.  maybe if comic vine got the dude's email and then asked him for it?  Wolverine is just too amazing as a username

Posted by Infininja

My screened.com name was auto-assigned by the multi-pass. It's "infininja" instead of "Infininja." I'm not happy about it.

Posted by Halberdierv2

W0lverine. just use a Zero instead of an O.

Posted by Apathylad

Have you considered using a capital 'i' instead of a little 'L'? I can't tell 'I' and 'l' apart!

Posted by Underachiever007

"TheWolverine".

LOL. Thx to this thread, he got a quest for page views

This seems like the best idea. Wolverine WoIverine. I just did it right there.

A long time ago on Comicvine someone had the same issue as you, but the mods basically said "Nah, suck it up" and they just ended up putting underscores around the name since they're hardly noticeable. Maybe the times have-a changed, though. Been a long time since I posted on CV.

@Halberdierv2:  Your avatar has reminded me that he should abandon his hope for using the name Wolverine on Comic Vine and settle for something increasingly badass: Michael Rooker.

that would be a fine decision, considering he can hold his own against Chuck Norris.
Posted by Example1013

TheRealWolverine.


Or WeaponX, if that's available.

Maybe WeaponTen?

Yup, this is probably my best option. Thanks guys!

Huh they might have done that so that people go around trolling as other people's favorite superheroes.

Posted by imsh_pl

Wolverine is taken?
try VVolverine

I AM A GENIUS

Posted by chrissedoff

be "james howlett"







lol!

Posted by JoeyRavn

I'd love to have the possibility to change your username in WM sites, at least once. I'm JoeyRavn here, Joey Ravn in Comic Vine (not that I go there anymore, thanks Sara) and joey_ravn in Tested (because I was so dumb as to create an account from my subscriptions page instead of creating one myself and then linking it).

That's not a big deal at all.
Posted by Infininja
@EveretteScott: Some might say it's the biggest of deals.
Posted by GetEveryone

Hmm, because of the way these sites are run, a pretty big emphasis is put on unique user IDs.


I can't imagine they'd be very happy about reducing that number because people feel that they have the right to a username.

Not that I'm saying you shouldn't. If someone had GetEveryone on another site, I'd be pissed.

I had that happen on Comic Vine.  Capital J on all the other sites.  Annoying.
Edited by Everyones_A_Critic

Don't worry dude, just change it to xXx\/\/01\/3|21|\|3xXx420BuB. That'll be a lot cooler than regular-ass Wolverine.

Edit: Fuck me, I didn't see Dany's post. My bad.
