Adding a babel[edit]

As you are applying for a global renamer right, would you mind adding a Babel code in the form ... {{#babel:xx|xx1|..|xxn}} to your user page. You may also wish review whether a soft redirect is still appropriate. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:07, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Yes, excellent idea. I will update accordingly. –xeno 12:53, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Global renamer[edit]

Hi Xeno. Just wanted to inform you that Matanya added you to the global renamer user group today, thus you are now able to globally rename accounts via Special:GlobalRenameUser. Good luck and if you ever have any questions, do not hesitate to ask of course! Trijnsteltalk 16:28, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

I've seen you already used the tool, though I figured this note couldn't hurt. Face-smile.svg
Thanks for the note! Yes, the tool seems to be in good working order =). Best regards, –xeno 17:03, 4 September 2014 (UTC)



Hi! Sorry for my stupidness, but could you tell, what I really need to do?

  1. I have to make 3 requests in this page (as local bureaucrats can't do this anymore, right?) with request to usurp those accounts (or rename them to some other?)?
  2. Make a new request to globally rename my username?

DerHexer declined your request because several usurpations need to be carried out first, so you'll have to file those usurp requests, I suppose. You can still engage local processes where necessary, like hu:WP:USURP and en:WP:USURP and bureaucrats will review for compliance with local usurp procedures and refer to Stewards as necessary. There are actually 9 accounts that would need to be overcome before you can be renamed to Edgars. –xeno 18:10, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Cordially, Savhñ 15:07, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Good-bye, Xeno! :([edit]

I have to leave the entire Wikimedia project and delete my global account, because I have to say "Good-bye!" to you Xeno and done editing across the English Wikipedia more than long enough. You'll see me go this time, no worries! --Allen (talk to me! / ctrb / E-mail me) 01:29, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

Xeno 2 account will be renamed[edit]

04:15, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi Keegan (WMF), I have merged the meta "Xeno 2" account to the enwiki one. Hopefully this will prevent the renaming of my alt account mentioned above. Best regards, –xeno 14:18, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
