Would you like me to rename you from Icestorm815 to Mike V after the usurpation of the autocreated account? Regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:16, 10 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, that would be great! Icestorm815Talk 20:15, 10 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You have to login with your current username on Meta, then request usurp. Techman224Talk 20:23, 17 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is a usurp request, confirmed by a link, and it is unnesesary to create an account just to have it renamed. A 'crat should rename "Faux" to "Faux (usurped)", as to liberate this nick for unification and allowing the local creation of the global account. Savhñ 21:57, 17 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Was that old that it had not even a timestampt of creation. Yes check.svg Done the usurpation. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 22:14, 17 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nini00 → DocElisa

Status:    Done

Nini00 (talk) 19:45, 11 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:DocElisa exists and have edits, and is also a global account. Unless you can prove that you own both accounts I can not rename you. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 22:29, 17 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Confirmation of ownership of DocElista provided following this message from Nini00. Rename follows. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:00, 21 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes check.svg Done; DocElisa renamed to DocElisa (usurped) following confirmation of ownership then Nini00 renamed to DocElisa. User:DocElisa (usurped) blocked to avoid problems. You may access pt:Special:MergeAccount to reunify the account to SUL. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:05, 21 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fran McCrory → Fran Rogers

Status:    Done

Fran McCrory (talk) 06:26, 16 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes check.svg Done - Please check if page redirects are OK. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:25, 21 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mohinibothara → Appleandzara

Status:    Not done 17:19, 19 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Rename is not possible because the target account already exists and has a single edit, which is tweaking this request. Rename the first account will require usurping Appleandzara and then renaming Mohinibothara to Appleandzara... for a single edit account. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:13, 21 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The format parameter has not been filled in properly! Reinstate the request and fill in the format parameter correctly!

I cannot find an explicit prohibition about promotional usernames here (off the top of my head) but this should be of interest. -- Avi (talk) 23:04, 25 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
