Requests and proposals Steward requests (Username changes) latest archive
This page hosts requests for a username change. Please read the instructions before posting a request. Global username changes may also be requested here to be done by stewards and global renamers.

This is also the page where stewards can be requested to deal with problems relating to the unified login feature. These include:

  • Usurpation of accounts
  • Deletion of global accounts
Cross-wiki requests
Meta-Wiki requests

If your rename request requires no stewardship, you have two options:

  1. Use the (new) request form at Special:GlobalRenameRequest; or
  2. Utilise the manual process outlined above, and submit it below in this section.

Please add new requests at the end of the section. Sections should be titled your username@global if you wish to be globally renamed. Please use this tool to check if the username is taken before filing a request.

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications[edit]

Please add new requests at the end of the section. Sections should be titled your username@global and requests should be signed by both the source (from) and target (to) user accounts.
Please note: Per standard procedure we don't usurp users with valid edits and the user must be notified before usurpation. Usurpation requests are generally on hold for one month.

Maels~enwiki@global[edit]

@Maels~enwiki: The user has valid edit on commons for example. We don't usurp users with valid edits. Please pick up a new username. --Steinsplitter (talk) 09:42, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
The only valid edit was a copyright violation, which I have now deleted. I believe this means we can usurp the account. MBisanz talk 20:32, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
@MBisanz: You seen his nlwiki edits? Thanks for deleting the copyvio. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:58, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
I don't read Dutch, so I can't tell if they're significant. We should probably err against renaming. MBisanz talk 19:50, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
Just piping up to let you know I'm still around. Thank you for your time, people. --Maels~enwiki (talk) 13:47, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
@Maels~enwiki: Looks like the target account has valid edits. Please pick up a new username. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:16, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
I've changed my name, thanks again! --Maelses (talk) 02:22, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
Your new name schould be "Maelses"? So we have to usurp Special:CentralAuth/Maelses. Because merging accounts is not possible all edits will be moved to Maelses (usurped). --Steinsplitter (talk) 10:04, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
I used the tool provided here:Special:GlobalRenameRequest to successfully request a username change. I believe all edits are credited to me already and no further action is needed. --Maelses (talk) 12:51, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
