GitHubに先に登録されていたユーザー名を譲ってもらった話

More than 1 year has passed since last update.

GitHubでアカウント登録しようとした際に、ユーザー名の入力欄にUsername is already takenという文字が…

自分が登録しようとしたユーザー名を持っているアカウントを見てみると、登録(2014年)以降まったく使われていませんでした(なぜ登録したのか…)

いろいろ調べてみると、GitHubにはName Squatting Policyというものがありました。

Name Squatting Policy

このポリシーは、アカウント取得は基本早いものがちだが、非アクティブなアカウントについてはスタッフがアカウントを削除または他のユーザーに譲るということを示しています。

GitHubにコンタクト

そこで自分が使いたいユーザ名を譲ってもらえないかとGitHubにコンタクトをとってみました。

こんな感じでメッセージを送ってみました。

Hi,

I'm enquiring about whether username uichi can be released? The user who has registered that username doesn't look to have any activity.

Would just like to know whether this would possible.

Regards,
Uichi

Hi Uichi, 

Thanks for getting in touch.

You are in luck — we have classified the uichi account as dormant, as outlined in our Name Squatting Policy:

https://help.github.com/articles/name-squatting-policy 

We typically would release the username back into the public for you to claim; however, this may be a potentially popular username. I'd be happy to make the switch for you on our end to avoid anyone else jumping in and taking it!

Let me know which account you'd like to rename to uichi, and we'll get that taken care of for you. If you don't have an account yet, let me know once you sign up with a temporary username.

Best,
Robin 

GitHubが定めているポリシーに則りアカウントを譲ることが出来ますが、このまま解放してしまうと他のユーザーに運悪く登録されてしまう可能性もあるため、アカウントを持っていないなら一時的に仮のアカウントを作って知らせてくださいとのこと。

早速作成し返信。

Hello Robin,

Thanks for your reply.

I made the uichi2 account (https://github.com/uichi2) because I did not have an account.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Truly yours,
uichi

GitHub側でユーザー名の変更をやってくれました!
ありがとうGitHub!!

Hi uichi,

Thank you for confirming! I have changed uichi2 to uichi, so this should be all set.

Please let us know if you have any questions, or if we can help with anything else at the moment.

Cheers, 
Jack

無事に希望通りのユーザー名で登録が出来ました。
