Can't attach local account to unified account[edit]

After merging accounts (first, en.wikipedia and en.wikiquote) I was left with an account on fr.wikipedia that wouldn't attach. I tried using the password forgotten function but never receive an email. Not sure if it's blocked somewhere on the way. That local account has 0 contributions, but I'd like it to be attached to my global account nonetheless. What can I do? MacCool (talk) 01:59, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

You could wait until SUL finalization; it will be happening this April. --Glaisher (talk) 03:54, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

MediaWiki message delivery[edit]

Is the Finnish wikipedia account compromised? I got a strange email from fi.wikipedia today and it contains "MediaWiki message delivery jätti viestin keskustelusivullesi: Näytä viesti Näytä muutokset". I cannot translate it. I tried unifying my login across all languages and it is stuck on fi.wikipedia. I think its a phishing email and i NEED to find out if my account has been compromised!!!.--Bud001 (talk) 04:16, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Hello Bud001. The message you received is a legitimate message from the Wikimedia Foundation development team about the upcoming account unification. Your account has not been compromised. If your account on fi-wikipedia couldn't be merged automatically, you should see an option to enter your local password to confirm ownership on fi:Special:MergeAccount. It's safe to enter your password on that page. —Pathoschild 04:20, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Partly unified[edit]

I got this information:

Login unification complete!
You can now log in to any wiki site of the Wikimedia Foundation without creating a new account.

Read more about unified login…
The accounts named "Pationl" on each of the following sites have been automatically attached to the unified account:

Long ago I did not succeeed to register Patio here and on a few others like pt (there I'm Patiobe]] I received an email to rename Patio to 'KlaasZ4usV, but here it's not me... Now what? Anyone able to rename this account and Patiobe @WpPt to User:KlaasZ4UsV as well?

Thanks in advance, Pationl (talk) 09:26, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi Pationl. You can do that via Steward requests/Username changes. —Pathoschild 17:53, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
