Instructions[edit]

Before posting here[edit]

Please list the specific projects that you need to be renamed in under your request, unless you are requesting a global rename.

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.

Yes check.svg Done; is acceptable username. --rxy (talk) 17:16, 20 June 2018 (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.

Okanfan@global[edit]

@Okanfan: So you want to be usurped to username Hazan? Just confirming as I am confused with your reason. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:45, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Sietske @global[edit]

@Sietske: We can't merge accounts as you can see a notice on this section. So only option you have is start using Sietske account on both commons and English Wikipedia. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:50, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
@stewards: I suggest to switch the enwiki local accounts between the global accounts Sietske and SietskeEN. This request was also posted on the Dutch helpdesk [1]. A steward can delete the global accounts, and locally rename the local enwiki accounts. Afterwards Sietske can recreate both global accounts. That way her main global account has the main enwiki account. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 03:53, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
PS: this cannot be done for Sietske~commonswiki because to remerge a split account they would need the pasword. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 15:21, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
@علاء, MarcoAurelio, and Ajraddatz: ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:05, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
I hope if @MarcoAurelio and Ajraddatz: do it, because I don't deal with such requests previously, I'm afraid to make a fault --Alaa :)..! 23:12, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I can do this. I'll try to set aside some time tonight. – Ajraddatz (talk) 23:32, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
