I want to use SUL. These two wikipedias are the ones that doesn't have stewards. They don't belong to me.

Please let us know what this request is about, thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:33, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
You can use sul, I still don't understand the problem, are these accounts not Yours and You want to have them renamed? Please not that the one on or.wiki has contributions, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:38, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
I don't want this anymore. Thanx. Joseph (--88.231.252.11 14:40, 11 August 2008 (UTC))

SUL Bevegelsesmengde[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

My main account is on no.wiki Bevegelsesmengde but I use another username on en.wiki which I would prefer not to rename. With SUL, I keep getting logged into the wrong account on en.wiki. I would therefore request that my ties with en.wiki are severed, SUL-wise, or if removing it on en.wiki only is impossible, that my SUL account is reverted back to the individual no.wiki account it was beforehand. (Note that I tried to fix this locally on en.wiki [3] but autocreation thwarted this) Bevegelsesmengde 18:15, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

I can suggest You three solutions:
  1. let Your other account being renamed to the one on en.wiki, and useing this as sul account then (having the same name everywhere)
  2. unmerge the autocreated account on en.wiki [4] from Your sul account Bevegelsesmengde (if You rename him then there again, it will be autocreated the next time when You come from no.wiki to en.wiki again)
  3. delete the SUL-account Bevegelsesmengde completely, these accounts would get unmerged:

Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:27, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Option 2, unmerging, sounds nice. But is this something I can do myself? When I click on "manage your global account" in my preferences, I just get a page saying "Login unification complete!" Bevegelsesmengde 18:37, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
Ok, no, You could not do it Yourself. I have unmerged "Bevegelsesmengde@en.wiki" now, if You go to special:mergeaccount You will see that en.wiki is unmerged. Don't let the account on en.wiki now being renamed, it will block the autocreation of another "Bevegelsesmengde", and You will not be logged in automatically to the en.wiki one.
If You one time are not happy with that anymore, You can remerge it Yourself at special:mergeaccount.
Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:43, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Hello! I have unified my account yesterday, my main wiki is it.wikiversity and my user name is WHacko but I have a problem. On it.wikipedia my username was "Whacko", not "WHacko" so the Wiki software sees them different. Could you fix this? Thank you --WHacko 18:56, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

I have contacted a bureaucrat of it.wikipedia and he said me that he can transfer "Whacko" in "WHacko" if I erase my SUL request. Is it possible? Thank you very much! --WHacko 13:13, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Hello, the bug that SUL accounts can't be renamed has been fixed (see top of this page), so he can rename without problems, he just has to choose a checkbox (and Your SUL has not to be deleted).

Hello, thank you for the answer. Can a local bureaucrat (f.e. in Russian Wikipedia) rename my account or do I need your help anyway? Spectorman 13:47, 11 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes, they can rename, only if You wish to abandon the current username completely You might want to have the sul deleted too (to avoid autocreations for example). Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 13:50, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

The following discussion is closed.

I use Unified Login on all the wiki projects. My username is Jordan Timothy James Busson. But on commons my Username is Jordan Busson. This causes a few problems for me. Because of Unified Login I now have an account with my correct username, but all by edits are on User: Jordan Busson. Could you fix this?

Help! I am frustrated ![edit]

The following discussion is closed.

I thought creating an account automatically meant my account worked on ALL Wikipedias and Wikimedias. But it seems this is not the case, and I do not understand.

I tried the "Unify" or somthing like that, and I get an error or some sort of message, saying that it can "Unify" everywhere . . . except in the "en:" ! ? ! ?

From what I can find out by myself there seems to be an account on the "en:" that has my name. It was opened in Feb 07, but never contributed or discussed anything. So can you give me that name in the "en:" since it seems to have been incactive since they registered, anyways, and so are blocking me from using it. Thank you --Bouleau 09:18, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Hello, en.wiki has local crats, please ask for renames there (interwikilinks to the requestpages can be found on this page), thanks. P.S. You can already unify Your accounts, en.wiki will just be unattached, but still ask for a rename there then, if the account has 0 edits that should be not much of a problem, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 10:24, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Sorry for disturbing you again. This wikipedia is automatically created by me on my first SUL attempt. I want to usurpate this account too. I leave a message here for confirmation. --Joseph 15:45, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
Hello, I am confused, You can log in to that account, why don't You just merge it in special:mergeaccount? Deleting accounts is not possible, we can only rename them, but since You own the account anyway I don't understand the need for it.
(P.S. You don't 'disturb', that is what this page is for :) ).
Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 15:49, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
I don't want to do that. Because I never entered new.wikipedia.org site, I'm pretty sure about that. There may be a glitch or something, so I don't want that account to be merged with my SUL account. If you can't rename the account since it is not older at least six months, then leave it like that. Thanks --Joseph 18:20, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I can do that, but I want to warn You that this will be quite useless: reason is SUL, which means You don't have to login to the wiki but keep logged in if You just visit another wiki, there an account _is already reserved for You_ and just is then activated (created automatically), You will observe lots of automatic creations on wikis where You might not have been in the future.
If You don't want that You'd better deactivate SUL forever for Your accounts, because we won't fulfill useless requests and doing Sisyphean tasks. Thanks for Your understanding.
Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:42, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
You understand me wrong, I don't want "that" "suprisingly created" new.wikipedia account. I'm worried if it may cause trouble me in the future. I'm sorry for asking a sisyphus task. Thanks for your attention. --Joseph 18:52, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I understand, but please do understand also, You will get lots of them in the future, maybe soon also again on new... Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:54, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

en:User:noychoh[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

My principal account already organised into SUL is en:User:noychoH. Yet, by an original error, I have also another account as en:User:noychoh incorrectly, with the lowercase "h" in the end). I wanted to merge them since 2006, but no-one ever was able to give me a hint, how, and later no-one more answered my requests. You can see the discussion on my two accounts' main and talk pages.

Now with the SUL I have note read that I need to change the name of any account BEFOR creating a SUL, in order to merge them or to usurp another account. And the account was created immediately once i have confirmed my identity. Now, can I merge that another account into my own one (with all its history, discussion etc.)

 Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus  wrote to me back in 2006 that I could also merge my account even with the IP number. Is that true?

I also don't know why I couldn't have the initial letter in lowercase "n" - Wikipedia has changed it to "N", incorrectly (againts the Klingon spelling rules), now with the changes of the name I would like to change it into the lowercase letter, if possible.

Before making any changes, please contact me in written. While answering, please best answer to my Polish talk page pl:Wikipedysta:noychoH.

Thanks

Hello:
  1. Two different accounts on the same project can't be merged, we can only rename from one to another. Please chose the account You like more and ask for rename to Your prefered name. For the local requestpages please see the interwikilinks here.
  2. The bug that did not allow renaming while sul was already activated is fixed, You can activate SUL on that account You wish right away.

Hi all, I'm registered in several wiki, commons, Wikimedia Software, etc... projects. But there is a user Rmatt on the German wiki, which does not allow me to complete the unification.

Dear stewards, first of all please apologise my non perfect english, I'm italian. ;) Under suggestion from the steward .anaconda, I'm asking here for a global merging action. I am sysop on the italian wikipedia, and I have many other accounts around the wikimedia projects too. Beeing many accounts, I think is better to ask here instead of each project, please forgive me if I'm wrong. Here is a list of the accounts that I would like to merge (it:Utente:Lucas is the main one). They are all without edit and probably some of them are also created by me in the past (but with other email - password that i don't remember).

There are also some other accounts with a few edit that would be more safe if they're merged. Should I ask before the bureaucrat for a renaming action?

Many thanks for any help. --Lucas 03:18, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Three renamed accounts[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

I renamed a couple of users on enwiki; they had global accounts, but as they only had a single account registered, I didn't think much of it and performed the renames. (log). I need the following global accounts deleted, since they're apparently still "active":

Sorry in advance for the mess. If the global accounts don't actually need to be deleted, that's fine too. :) EVula // talk // // 07:18, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Hello EVula, I have deleted GHelzn and MathDance because they were empty, Afranetwiki had a fully functionable sul (one account at en.wiki, autocreated, but still he would then have to ask for it himself, since it even contributed). If such happens it is imho better to delete the sul account (to prevent that automatic accounts are created) but I guess there are lots of such empty sul accounts (without any merged account) floating around.

Hello, all those wikis have local crats, please ask for renames there (interwikilinks to the requestpages can be found on this page, or type special:listusers/bureaucrat into the searchfield on the local wiki), thanks. Please note that usurping might not be possible on some projects if the accounts have edits, best regards, --geimfyglið :^╡ 07:04, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
Thank you. --Ickis 15:41, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

I'd like to be taken out of the global login system. I have a different name on each Wikimedia project, and whereas before I would log into each individually, now when I log into Wikipedia I am automatically logged into all other Wikimedia projects under the Wikipedia global name. This is extremely frustrating as I then have to log back into each project again and again. I do not want them merged. JessicaThunderbolt 16:14, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Hello, for Your own safety, please make sure to have a valid, confirmed email in Your special:preferences and let us know here, thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 16:36, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
I'm sorry I don't have email. JessicaThunderbolt 16:47, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done, just for Your information: please note that without email You have no opportunity to restore the password of the account in case it gets lost (You don't need to activate "allow email from other users"). Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 16:54, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Delete SUL[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

Hi! =) I want my global accout to be deleted, in order that I can rename myself on it:wp and then create a new SUL account. Thanks! =D Peppos 17:22, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

That's not necessary. If your account on itwp is renamed, it will be automatically unattached. --Thogo (talk) 17:23, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
=O ...italian stewards said me the exact contrary!!! What's real? =p And, however...what I have to do, so? Peppos 18:03, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Depends on when they said that to you. Some months ago it *was* necessary to delete the global account before renaming, but that's fixed now. If you want to be renamed on it.wp ask the bureaucrats there. Probably there is a request page for that on your wiki. --Thogo (talk) 18:05, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I'll ask them for help. Thanks for the support. See you around =) Peppos 18:07, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Someone should tell him, ;) Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 20:05, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

Flint on nl. wiki[edit]

I've placed a notice on nl. wiki on 18 of August. Please help me to usurpate this account.--Flint 16:29, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Hello, being able to unify local accounts does not mean that You are allowed to take over all local accounts that have not been Yours before, You will have to ask for it, if the owner of the local account does not respond or decide to ignore Your request we can't do anything about it. I would, if I were You, explain the user why this is useful, also for him to choose a not yet taken name, if he does not comply I would choose another name myself (that is what I did years ago btw.).

Undo Unified Login[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

Hi, I am Korean User.i want to cancel all of my unified login accounts except Korean wikipedia.

there is a list:

please erase unified login accounts. -- 윤성현 23:35, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

Hello 윤성현, we can not delete local accounts. If we "delete" Your SUL, that means that all local accounts will be unmerged and no longer attached to each other, also You will have to log in on each wiki and on the wikis, where You don't have an account yet, You will have to create a new account. But the local accounts will stay as they are!
Furthermore Your name will not be protected anymore and anyone could register "윤성현" on a wiki, where Your name does not exist yet.
If You want this, please make sure to have a valid, confirmed email-address in Your preferences, for Your own safety, and let us know here, and confirm, that You want this by writing "yes, delete my single user login", before we proceed, thanks. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 23:40, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
So you mean you can erase those accounts one by one? -- 윤성현 23:51, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
The global account can be deleted, if you want, since it's not a "real" account, just a link between your project accounts. The accounts created on individual projects, however, cannot be deleted at all. Kylu 23:52, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
Indeed, the local accounts will stay, no matter what I do, You could ask for renames of them but that You would have to ask locally on each wiki. I don't see the point of this... --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 23:54, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
Oh, Yeah.... but if I have two accounts in same language project, what am I going to do? -- 윤성현 23:56, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
Rename the account you don't want to something else, then have the one you want to keep moved to your global name, if you'd like. Alternatively, just globally register both names and make sure people know that both accounts are yours? Kylu 23:59, 31 August 2008 (UTC)
Do You have a concrete example? --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 00:00, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
That is so much fine, I appriciate it. -- 윤성현 00:19, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

SUL Gingko[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

I am fr:Gingko from the French Wikipedia. I would like to usurp user meta:Gingko in this Meta-Wiki for completing SUL. This user has a very few edits here (4, apparently mostly in his "talk" page) in a language and alphabet that I am not able to identify. Please could you do what is necessary ? Best regards. 80.13.22.160 05:57, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Meta has local crats, please ask for renames on the local requestpage (interwikilinks to the requestpage can be found on this page on the left, or type special:listusers/bureaucrat into the searchfield on the local wiki), thanks. Please note that usurping might not be possible on some projects if the accounts have edits, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 06:39, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

en:User:Picapica[edit]

Please undo my unified login. The reason for the request is that when switching between different language Wikipedias I am now frequently required to log out of unwanted "autocreated" accounts in other languages and log in again to my real main accounts (which have different user names) in those languages, and when returning from those accounts to en:. This affects, in particular, my accounts on cy: and fr: (although not normally es: and nl:, for example). I should like to be restored to the situation I was in before signing up for unified login since this side-effect of the change has created new inconveniences for me without bringing, I am afraid, any noticeable benefits. -- Picapica 12:12, 5 September 2008 (UTC)
