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.

|domain = global
|Oldname =
|Newname =
|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.


@AnuJuno: The username is already registered, see Special:CentralAuth/Renaissance. Please pick a new name. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 02:04, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

@AnuJuno: What is the another name that you'll choose? Or you ask to close this request at this moment? --Alaa :)..! 16:10, 23 June 2017 (UTC)


Yes check.svg Done. Linedwell [talk] 04:40, 25 June 2017 (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.


X mark.svg Not done the user is blocked in main wiki until Nov. 2017! --Alaa :)..! 09:49, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
@Alaa: Excuse me, sir. See the Special:CentralAuth/Idh0854. My home wiki (plus mark) is english wikipedia. And as I said, this request is for "removes any personal informations in my account name". Also, I don't want to contribute any wikimedia project anymore and I hope to leave the all wikimedia project, because I don't want no more trouble some people in ko community. So, please change the my account name, sir. Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 18:22, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
Some puppert account in ko wiki already know that this account have my personal information. I don't want bully (and stalking on Social Network) by puppert account no more, really. Please. Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 18:32, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
At first see this Courtesy vanishing if you wanna stop editing and abandon your account --Alaa :)..! 19:12, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
@Alaa: I know that means of Courtesy vanishing. But I don't know, "even later", I whether I really want to leave or not in wikimedia project, without ko wikipedia. (Now, I'm tired of contributing wikipedia.) And already I said, I want to remove the my personal informations in this account name and I don't want bully (and stalking on Social Network) by puppet account any more. So I really need to changes of user name. I believe you understand what I said, sir. And sorry for my poor english. Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 07:56, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
@Alaa: Plus, you said, "until 21 May" before "notdone". But I am blocked in ko wikipedia since that time. Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 07:00, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
I’m still waiting for a reply. Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 11:20, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
@Idh0854: sorry for late in replay, the problem now that your request need a sysadmin or at least a steward to deal with it, because you have more than 50,000 edits we as global renames can't change it, please send to stewards in RC channel. Thanks --Alaa :)..! 03:15, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
@Alaa: Thanks for your answer. I visit to IRC wikimedia-stewards channel as you are saying. I asked one question, but nobody answered. How can I do when there is no answer? Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 15:55, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
@Legoktm and Hoo man: can you help here? --Alaa :)..! 15:57, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

I am more concerned about the local block and it's compatibility with the global rename policy on not allowing renames to hide bad behaviour. Block at kowiki seems to be based on Wikipedia:Etiquette. If we're confortable with the rename, then I can do it. —MarcoAurelio 09:43, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

@MarcoAurelio: you can see what the user said above about the local block, that he not wanna work again in kowiki. At the first time when the user request to change his name he's not blocked in kowiki, but before few days of preform this request he blocked so I refuse the request but the user said some convincing things --Alaa :)..! 11:49, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

If username change is possible, please could you not move my user pages in all wikimedia projects, if possible? I don't want korean puppets to know this user name change. Aleady I delete the most my user pages of wikimedia projects, except for meta wiki, english wikipedia, and korean projects. (This also I will ask sysops of this extra wikis to delete, not move, soon.) It means that I don't want record the history logs of arctles. (For user log, unlike histories of user pages, user log is not visible I think.) Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 13:19, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

I'll be having busy days again so I can not take care of this; any steward or global renamer should feel free to action this request. —MarcoAurelio 15:56, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio: Thanks for your answer. I understand, so I will be waiting for the action. And I am sorry for my additional request. Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 17:32, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
@Idh0854: when we change the name, we changed it globally and we can't exclude pages/talk pages in any wiki, so ..? --Alaa :)..! 12:10, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
@Alaa: Is it possible that it request for remove the all user pages (include talk pages and subpages) of all wikis in meta wiki? I don't finished it because of some wikis can't remove the user talk page. (I will request for undelete of talk pages that contains at least one content does not contain only template welcome at all wikis after the username change.) Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 16:15, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
@Idh0854: you can ask about that here. --Alaa :)..! 03:25, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
@Alaa: Always thanks for your help. :) --Idh0854 (talk) 14:40, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
A better place is Synchbot. That bot can do that all at once. —MarcoAurelio 10:59, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

@Idh0854: put a request here as MarcoAurelio mentioned, after this told me to coordinate with sysadmin to change your name. --Alaa :)..! 16:12, 23 June 2017 (UTC)
