Do you mean User:Lemenkov (or whatever your FAS user ID is)?

What I think you are looking to do is to do a ''move'', which is a tab
at the top of the page when you are logged in.  This sets up a redirect
automatically.  The rest of this is described here:

Thanks much for pointing out these feature pages to folks.  MediaWiki
has many Special: pages that are great assistance to a community
documentation effort.  Riding on MediaWiki/Wikipedia's experience in
pre-built wiki tooling is another benefit of this migration.
