Description Borgx 2007-01-01 00:12:20 UTC
I got error "user already exists" when trying to rename user. (from "Pengguna"
to "Matthew Brian" on id.wikipedia). I assume the user "Matthew Brian" is not
exist from the newuser creation log and from its user and user talk page (pages
not exists).
Comment 1 Fyren 2007-01-01 00:17:49 UTC shows
that user (currently) exists.  The new user log doesn't show account creations
before the log itself was added.  Look up names in Special:Listusers in the future.
