Not done. This request is your very first edit to Meta. By the way you're blocked in the English Wikipedia, not here. And they seem to have rejected your block appeal. I think you're looking for w:Wikipedia:Changing username if administrators over there unblocks you to request a username change. Thanks. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 00:44, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done - Username CARLAGIANTMEN does not exist locally. Also, request for renaming your own account should come from the account itself. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:10, 18 January 2013 (UTC)

Status:    Done

Ozgurmulazimoglu (talk) 06:38, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

What kind of progress is this? Will it take years? Ozgurmulazimoglu (talk) 07:07, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
RTV granted. Be adviced that this rename will be reversed if you edit under the new username, because vanishing means stop editting. Thanks for your understanding. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:49, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Lipedia → Mate2code

Status:    Done

  • Current username: Lipedia (talk contribs  email)
  • Target username: Mate2code (talk contribs  email)
  • For bureaucrat use: User creation logs: (oldnew) | SUL reports: (oldnew) | Userpage logs: (oldnew)  (rename user)
  • Datestamp: 18:47, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Confirmation link: [what? here]
  • Reason: I have renamed my account on Commons, but unfortunately something went wrong. Although I have a unified login, only the account on Commons was renamed, but I want to change the username for the whole global account. On Commons I was told to ask here. For some reason I can still log in as Lipedia on Commons, and now I have a single edit as Lipedia. I hope you can unmess things up.

Lipedia (talk) 18:47, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

Hi Lipedia,
  • Here at Meta:CHU we can change your name for this Meta-Wiki, and for all the other projects that do not have local bureaucrats you need to ask at SRUC. Unfortunatelly there's not, yet, a global rename tool.
  • Regarding the issue at Commons, the account was properly renamed. But due to SUL, if after your rename you logged as Lipedia, CentralAuth creates again the old account. Known issue.
So for now I can rename you here at meta.wikipedia if you want to. Best regards, -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:15, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes, rename me here. Lipedia (talk) 19:31, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done, best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:21, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

Question Question: Hi. The nick Saki1 is already taken in some projects [2]. Do you still want me to rename you? Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:08, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes, please. --Saqib (talk) 12:05, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Semiramide → Lagrande

Status:    Done

Semiramide (talk) 11:41, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

You will be renaming to a username used at other projects as well. Do you want to continue? Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:11, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Sure, I sometimes write in wikipedia, wikiquote, wikivoyage ... I'd like to have an only general account. --Semiramide (talk) 19:12, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

FYI, I've reviewed the situation in depth and this is indeed the best solution. --Nemo 10:51, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done - Per confirmation and comment from Nemo. It looks like just Lagrande@svwiki could not be of you; but it might be usurped locally if they allow that. Also, if you really want an unique name and ensure that the Lagrande username can only be used by you I suggest that you visit Special:MergeAccount on the project you most edit and follow the steps to create a global account. Best regards/Ciao. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 15:22, 26 January 2013 (UTC)

Leilalima → PolkaDOT

Status:    Done

Leilalima (talk) 19:14, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Are you aware that PolkaDot already exists on other projects? Namely, enwiki in which you have some edits too. It may be a barrier to create a global account. I'll rename you nonetheless if that's your wish. Please do let me know. Thanks. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:10, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
maybe using uppercase? "PolkaDOT" ? Thanks. (if not, double t "PolkaDott") -- Leilalima (talk) 01:55, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
Hi, both PolkaDOT and PolkaDott are free. Which one do you prefer? Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 15:15, 26 January 2013 (UTC)
PolkaDOT is better. Thank you. Leilalima (talk) 22:00, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
Done. Regards, Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 10:13, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
Sorry but how does that work? I can't log in with the new username and my articles keep showing my name: "Leilalima". Thank you -- Leilalima (talk) 15:58, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Leilalima: in which project you wanted to be renamed? Perhaps it was over the English Wikipedia? If so you should be adding your request at w:WP:CHU. How did you arrived to this page? It keeps surprising me several users from enwiki asks here for a rename over there. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 20:12, 29 January 2013 (UTC) NB: notwithstanding User:PolkaDOT is now yours as well here at meta.wikimedia. Regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 20:13, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Marco Aurelio: Hi, I also want to be renamed on the English Wikipedia, Should I go here? Thank you! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Changing_username/Simple Leilalima (talk) 16:00, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes, the place you made the request over there is the correct place. Do not forget to access Special:MergeAccount over there once renamed there (not before) so PolkaDOT remains yours accross all wikis. Regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:41, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
