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.

--Kaptain Marvel (talk) 06:08, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Please notify the user on the local talk page.—cyberpower ChatHello! 06:10, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
If local talk page means English Wikipedia? Then I wrote on his talk page. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:X-Men --Kaptain Marvel (talk) 06:11, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
I would prefer it if you used the {{Usurpation requested}} template instead.—cyberpower ChatHello! 06:14, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
The template is not working there https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:X-Men --Kaptain Marvel (talk) 06:19, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
You have to substitute the template. The error message tells you how to do it.—cyberpower ChatHello! 06:23, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
Ya, I saw that error message properly and did it. --Kaptain Marvel (talk) 06:24, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

J-Ronn@global[edit]

Sorry but the requested username cannot be usurped. Please pick another.—cyberpower ChatHello! 16:30, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
How about Heneral as my username? The user was registered on September 2009 (6 years ago) and has 0 edits.--J-Ronn (talk) 12:05, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
Please notify the target user with the {{Usurpation requested}} template.—cyberpower ChatHello! 14:39, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
Done. I've added the template to his talk page. --J-Ronn (talk) 15:35, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

Ish ishwar@global and Ishwar~commonswiki@global[edit]

Just editing from other account to say I agree. Ish ishwar (talk) 18:47, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
A steward/sysadmin will need to handle this one. This goes beyond my scope.—cyberpower ChatHello! 05:20, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
Ok. Do they come by here? Or, do I need post this request somewhere else? Ish ishwar (talk) 21:49, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
@Ish ishwar:, please access this page while logged in to complete the unification of your SUL-account. Once you have done that, your account should be globally unified under "Ish ishwar"Savhñ 11:17, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
@Savh:, my password doesn't seem to work for that account now. Shouldn't the password for commons and en.wiki be the same now? Ish ishwar (talk) 14:55, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
No, that unattached account still possesses the password of the Ishwar~commonswiki account.—cyberpower ChatHello! 15:11, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
Please also try any old pre-SUL password, or otherwise reset the password on commons through your e-mail. Savhñ 16:26, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
