Welcome to Moegirlpedia!
You, the person seeing this page, are a user of Moegirlpedia in a broad sense.

Moegirlpedia contributors can be logged-in or not logged-in users. However, users who are not logged-in have relatively few permissions and cannot edit or comment on pages.

Creating an account is not mandatory, but we recommend you to do so.


"User" refers to customers who enjoy services, and also refers to the main body of action in the computer field. The user is not necessarily a natural person.

In Moegirlpedia, the term "user" is more narrowly defined, specifically referring to Moegirlpedia’s account. However, due to the setting of MediaWiki, the term user may not be as clear as specified in this article.

In fact, the direct audience of Moegirlpedia website in a broad sense, people who read Moegirlpedia articles, can also be counted as users (ie: visitors) in a broad sense.

Change username

Moegirlpedia currently has a user name change plug-in installed, but it is temporarily not open to use, I hope you understand. The reasons are as follows:

  1. Earlier versions of MediaWiki stored the user’s uid instead of the user’s name when operating the database. This resulted in an unexpected error in the relevant database that could not index the user after the user name was changed;
    • And due to lack of operation and maintenance manpower, the database is difficult to maintain to update the above user index problem.
  1. Some plug-ins use username instead of uid due to years of disrepair, and renaming will cause plug-in errors.


  1. The term "End user" in product development refers to the person who ultimately uses or intends to use the product. This applies to readers. See more here:
