Hi l would like to change my name from Naturally Selenator to Naturally Wiki. I have to make a project in the university about creating wiki pages and it would be a bit embarrassing if all the students would see my name :/...Thanks for helping :)

I am User:Lady Lysine Ikinsile and en:User:Lady Lysine Ikinsile. I would like my username on both wikis changed to Käte Kate (this username is already in use, however I'm requesting it following discussion with jeronim). Thanks. I have confirmed on my en talk page. Lady Lysiŋe Ikiŋsile | Talk 17:06, 2004 Jul 30 (UTC)

Done -- Jeronim 01:32, 31 Jul 2004 (UTC)
en:user:Kate had never made any edits, and had not logged in for over a year, so I renamed the account to Kate20040731 to make way for Lysine's name change to Kate -- Jeronim 01:32, 31 Jul 2004 (UTC)
Thanks much :-) —Kate | Talk 02:15, 2004 Jul 31 (UTC)

I am user:shallot, en:user:shallot, hr:user:shallot, and I would like to have my account(s) renamed to Joy throughout. This is the request I originally posted on en:Wikipedia:Help desk:

reclaiming an old, unused user account
When I initially joined Wikipedia, I wanted to use the username "Joy", however, the software told me that it was taken already. Now that I look at it, I see that whoever registered it never made a single edit.
Would it be possible for me to ask for this account? One of the administrators could move away the old account and let me have the name. I use the other nickname (almost) everywhere else and it seems a shame for it to go to waste when I could do it justice :)
I suppose I wouldn't want to harass anyone to change my existing 8K edits (quite an SQL query that would be!), just letting me have the other account would be nice enough. --Shallot 21:33, 31 Jul 2004 (UTC)

The "I am requesting a name change to Joy" notices are now posted on user talk:shallot, en:user talk:shallot, hr:user talk:shallot.

TIA. --Shallot 12:19, 3 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Done on en (for the record, the necessary SQL executed in 4 minutes). Old user en:User:Joy renamed to en:User:Joy20040809. -- Jeronim 09:39, 9 Aug 2004 (UTC)
Also done on meta and hr. -- Jeronim 09:59, 9 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Some users of ja.Wikipedia were stolen their names on ja.Wikiquote. The registered names on the latter have no edit. Representing such users and one of them I am here requested for chaning usernames in JA.Wikiquote.
