This is so annoying. Can we make a policy about user name's being the names of articles? Every day, i type in an article name, only to be redirected to some random user page with that name. Just now, i tried typing in RobCo and got redirected to a user called User:RobCo. Can we do something about this? Tezzla CannonUser Tezzla Dog 17:28, October 12, 2010 (UTC)

User name policy is governed by Wikia, not the individual wikis. And yeah I've had it happen to me too. At least your name is spelled different so no one with half a brain would get your user page when searching for the weapon. --Kris User Hola 18:02, October 12, 2010 (UTC)

Whilst I agree in principle, I think it needs to be a rule with exceptions... If in the future the Devs' were to pull a'aiq_the_Liar on us (whom was named after a Bethesda Forum poster) then I don't think that person should be required to change their user ID. Agent c 18:21, October 12, 2010 (UTC)

It seems to me this is more of a search function problem. You could bring it up with wikia and ask if the search parameters can be set to prioritize articles over user names, unless "user" is specified in the search. But, I would not be inclined to begin a username policy as a response.--Gothemasticator 21:28, October 12, 2010 (UTC)
