Instructions[edit]

SUL finalization[edit]

If you are requesting a merge of a global account with one or more unconnected local accounts as part of finalizing your single unified login (SUL) username, please specify which wikis and accounts you want to merge into your global account. These accounts were typically be named "account name~wikiname". Please note that we can only merge a local account into a global account when the global account has no edits on the same wiki as the local account.


How to add an entry here[edit]

To add an entry, please copy and paste the text below into the appropriate section.

=== Oldname ===
{{SRUC
|status = <!--don't change this line-->
|domain = global
|Oldname =
|Newname =
|reason = (your remarks here)
--~~~~
}}

Example

For global rename requests:

=== Example ===
{{SRUC
|status     = <!--don't change this line-->
|domain     = global
|Oldname    = Example
|Newname    = Foo
|reason     = your remarks here
--~~~~
}}


Making a request for your own account[edit]

For changing your username on one wiki:

Please include the following information in your request:

  • the old username,
  • the new username,
  • please sign ~~~~ request with your account for a simple move (first section), or sign this request with both the originating and the target accounts if you are requesting a merge (second section).

If anything is missing from your request, a steward will request more information. This helps ensure that you are requesting a rename for your own account. Please check before posting your request that the username you want is available. You can test that by going to the (new) user page and looking into the sidebar. If there is a link to user contributions, the account already exists, or check via Special:CentralAuth.

Private requests[edit]

Requests that need to be made in private should be sent using this direct wiki-email interface while logged-in.


Simple rename requests[edit]

If your rename request is simple and does not involve usurpation of an existing account or other SUL issues, you have two options:

  1. Use the request form at Special:GlobalRenameRequest; or
  2. Submit the request below in this section.

Please use this tool to check if the username is taken before filing a request.

関東総合調査探偵局[edit]

I'm very sorry to tell you that both of your names here are violating zhwiki's username policy, hence the indefinite block. --Hamish 15:36, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
Ok. I changed the request.--KantoDetectiveAgency(Ja:関東総合調査探偵局) 15:05, 29 May 2020 (UTC).
Hello @Hamish: Does this username comply with your local policy? I can change it if it fits.--Turkmen talk 18:55, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
Unfortunately, it is still going against the local username policy. You cannot register usernames which imply that your account is operated by a group or institution but not only one person. --Hamish 04:56, 30 May 2020 (UTC)
@Hamish: How about this username? I'm sorry for the trouble.--KantoDetectiveAgency(Ja:関東総合調査探偵局) 15:20, 30 May 2020 (UTC)
It's okay now, and I will unblock shortly after this message, sorry for any inconvenience. --Hamish 15:24, 30 May 2020 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done--Turkmen talk 18:55, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications[edit]

Please add new requests at the end of the section. Sections should be titled your username and requests should be signed by the requesting user.
Please note: Per standard procedure, accounts with valid edits are not usurped, and the target account must be notified at least one month before usurpation.

@1997kB:I can't sign in with Suisetz because username "Suisetz" is not present in this wiki. Besides, I can't create user "Suisetz" because the name used to exist in Wikimedia commons. Sui-setz (talk) 10:36, 11 May 2020 (UTC)
@Sui-setz: You can sign in with Suisetz at commonswiki (c:Special:Login) and then when you will visit this wiki it will automatically create account for you. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:46, 11 May 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB:I tried to sign in with Suisetz at commonswiki, but it always failed. I can still sign in with only Sui-setz account even now. Sui-setz (talk) 14:45, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
@Sui-setz: What error you get while trying to login? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:21, 30 May 2020 (UTC)
