Topic: Who Stole My Name For Wikipedia?

I tried to create an account on Wikipedia using my BBFC username of "Bubba Fett"... but they said someone is already using it!

I named my cat "Bubba Fett" in 1995, and this is the only place I have used that name. I'll find a way to track you down on Wikipedia, eventually two topics we share an interest in will cross paths, then you can explain yourself directly to me, punk.

Bubba Fett can track down anyone in the galaxy. You can't hide forever, thief.

Sorry to rant, but that was a real bummer to discover.

Re: Who Stole My Name For Wikipedia?

Bubba Fett is a common mispronunciation, I doubt you're the first to "discover" it, and even then that doesn't make it solely your name that no one else can use. I mean, sure I'd be a bit miffed if I found someone using the name Miba somewhere, but I wouldn't be really mad about it, because it's not MY name. Do you get mad when you find people in RL who's names are the same as your RL name?

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

(dun dun dun!)

Re: Who Stole My Name For Wikipedia?

Thanks for the clarification, Jesse. It's all good.

In all honesty, I was hoping it was something like this. A BFFC member... and not just some random Star Wars fan visiting the site looking to steal what is, arguably, the COOLEST user name ever.

And, for the record, I DO own all the rights to the name "Bubba Fett". I registered it with the United States Copyright Office in 1995 after giving the name to my cat, for just this sort of contingency, 12 years later. A huge legal battle ensued with George Lucas, but the U.S. Supreme Court decided in my favor. Unfortunately, ol' Georgie-boy has never forgiven me, and still refuses to take my calls. But, Jesse the Kid is OK in my book, and has given the name his own personal touch.

Plus, now I've got an insider in Wikipedia... who owes me one. If you've ever tried to create or edit an article there, you know how valuable that is.

Thanks everyone. See ya in the threads.
