Just came across this new user after their name popped up in the review queue. Someone already made a point to them about their user name on this answer, but what actually happens in this situation?

  • Your link, "on this answer", may be to an incorrect answer, as there is no comment about usernames... May be worth double checking the link. May 4 '15 at 9:35
  • @Greenonline most likely the answer was removed already or the username was reverted as LessPop talks about in the answer below since asking this

  • @green the answer in question was deleted. Quite apart from the username issue, it simply did not answer the question. It's still visible to 10k users. May 5 '15 at 7:03

As with most issues, just flag it for moderator attention, and/or, if you feel comfortable, leave a comment on their post asking them to change it.

Mods can and will reset the username to a default (UserXXXXX or whatever).

  • Can you flag a user from their profile? There's a new user with a similarly inappropriate name here, and their only answer has already been deleted.
