Are you aware that by requesting this rename here you'll only be renamed on this project? Perhaps you're looking for w:WP:CHU? -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 20:17, 4 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]

BCG999 → RandomDSdevel

Status:    Not done

  • Current username: BCG999 (talk contribs  email)
  • Target username: RandomDSdevel (talk contribs  email)
  • For bureaucrat use: SUL report (oldnew) | Email target username | Vacate target userpages   (1)  (2)
  • Datestamp: 18:19, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Reason: I wish to finish renaming the accounts that I have acquired across the WikiMedia Foundation set of wikis because of how my old username contains my initials; I have already had my username changed successfully at Wikipedia, and I have also placed requests on other wikis for this same reason. If there are any SUL conflicts, please tidy them up in the requested direction of username change

BCG999 (talk) 18:19, 2 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Hello. The account RandomDSdevel already exists at Meta-Wiki and it is part of the RandomDSdevel global account. If you want that we rename you, please log into the account RandomDSdevel at meta.wikimedia and post here a confirmation so that we can know that you own both accounts. Notwithstanding, BCG999 has only one edit in this project and RandomDSdevel has none. Will not be easier to just abandon the BCG99 account? -- I'll do as you request. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 20:21, 4 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Alexgriz → AlexFeldman

Status:    Not done

  • Current username: Alexgriz (talk contribs  email)
  • Target username: AlexFeldman (talk contribs  email)
  • For bureaucrat use: User creation logs: (oldnew) | SUL reports: (oldnew) | Userpage logs: (oldnew)  (rename user)
  • Datestamp: 22:45, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Reason: I would like more ownership of my contributions. My new name is my actual name, I would like to be known that way in discussions about content.

Alexgriz (talk) 22:45, 7 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Are you aware of the implications of using your real name (ie: possibility of harassment)?
I also wonder, since you have just one contribution here, if you were not looking for enwiki & commons rename request pages?
Global rename is not yet ready.

Status:    Done

Faizan2 (talk) 12:44, 27 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Done. Usurped and renamed. You may unify now :) -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:45, 1 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks! Faizan (talk) 16:55, 5 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Gabriel.dominguez88 → Eccentricelectric

Status:    Not done

Gabriel.dominguez88 (talk) 05:42, 12 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]

The account Eccentricelectric already exists at enwiki and you'll not be able to unify your account. Are you happy with that or you preferr to choose another name? -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:51, 22 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Chicago Smooth → Global Editor

Status:    Not done

Chicago Smooth (talk) 19:16, 13 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]

I think you may be looking for w:WP:CHU instead. Please request that there first. Out of curiosity, which page pointed you to here? I'm curious to know why so many enwiki users comes here wrongly asking for local renames over here... -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:47, 14 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]

VolodymyrF → Володимир Ф

Status:    Done

  • Current username: VolodymyrF (talk contribs  email)
  • Target username: Володимир Ф (talk contribs  email)
  • For bureaucrat use: User creation logs: (oldnew) | SUL reports: (oldnew) | Userpage logs: (oldnew)  (rename user)
  • Datestamp: 09:07, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Reason: First delete Володимир Ф, which created incorrectly. Next rename VolodymyrF (with contributions) to Володимир Ф (I use Володимир Ф in wiki projects in Ukrainian languge), which I wish have as SUL. Thanks.

VolodymyrF (talk) 09:07, 15 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Could you please log in as Володимир_Ф here and sign here to confirm this request? Please note that accounts can't be deleted, only renamed. Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 18:40, 15 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]
I agree: renamed is more safely procedure rather then deleted. I, for example, prematurely did made uk:Special:MergeAccount, and so have problem with moving contributions from old username in some wikiprojects. (It was in enwiki, now it is all right with my contributions!) Regards, --Володимир Ф (talk) 19:03, 15 May 2013 (UTC).[reply]
Yes check.svg Done - Apologies for the delay. I have renamed Володимир Ф to Володимир Ф (usurped) and then VolodymyrF to Володимир Ф. You can merge the accounts again. Hope that all is OK. Best regards, -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 23:26, 20 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Mixolidic → The1

Status:    Done

  • Current username: Mixolidic (talk contribs  email)
  • Target username: The1 (talk contribs  email)
  • For bureaucrat use: User creation logs: (oldnew) | SUL reports: (oldnew) | Userpage logs: (oldnew)  (rename user)
  • Datestamp: 23:57, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Reason: To remove personal information from public display. My actual name is too long, and also is a reserved word in the music field, so this makes me disconfort. "The1" is my name from Lazarus Free Pascal Wiki, and other sites.

--Mixolidic (talk) 20:58, 10 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Please note that by requesting a rename on this page you'll be renamed only on this meta.wikimedia project. There's no global rename feature avalaible. Username The1 is not unified and has no edits anywhere so it'll be very easy to usurp on the other projects where you have edits (such as commons). Please see here for a list of unified Mixodlidic accounts, and RENAMELINKS for a list of rename request pages for other projects. Once you have renamed all the accounts please go to Special:MergeAccount to re-unify SUL under your new name. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:32, 11 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]
Yes check.svg Done here. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:34, 11 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Austinmuse → Gbh

Status:    Not done

Austinmuse (talk) 15:49, 12 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]

  • X mark.svg Not done - Austinmuse has just one edit here at Meta. I think that you're looking for w:WP:CHU instead. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 23:10, 20 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Wolftengu → Mamizou

Status:    Not done

Wolftengu (talk) 14:12, 14 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Cancel that, I'll just make a new one here. Thanks. Wolftengu (talk) 19:31, 19 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Incredibot → Incredister

Status:    Not done

Incredibot (User talk:Incredibot) Incredibot (talk) 07:05, 16 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]

You can create use the new one and put a note/redirect on the old one. You don't have any edits on Meta. Anyway, if you were to be renamed, you would need to log in to confirm this (you added this logged-out) PiRSquared17 (talk) 03:59, 16 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]
I am now logged in Incredibot (talk) 07:05, 16 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]
With 4 edits Wikimedia-wide, I don't know if it is worth a rename. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 23:13, 20 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]
As the account exists on enwiki I would note it is 'worth it' as without a rename the user would likely be blocked from editing there. ·addshore· talk to me! 21:46, 21 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]
That would not happen here. As for meta, this request is not done. Not really worth it for here. What you do on enwiki is not really important for the request here. -Barras talk 21:50, 21 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]
Struck my above comment, I am looking on the wrong page... ·addshore· talk to me! 21:52, 21 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]
