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

Simple rename requests[edit]

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.

Please notify target user with the {{Usurpation requested}} template.—cyberpower ChatHello! 02:34, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
@ウグイス: Target user has made one edit on jawiki (and it is not vandalism), I recommend picking another username instead, since global renamers don't usurp accounts that have valid edits. Thanks, Pokéfan95 (talk) 10:05, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
@Pokéfan95: I changed my Newname. ウグイス (talk) 12:45, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
Global account "Sasanqua" doesn't exist, global renaming can be done now. Thanks, Pokéfan95 (talk) 12:56, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
Global account SASANQUA does exist, and has a significant amount of contributions, including recent ones. Please choose a different name. Savhñ 22:19, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
@ウグイス: The reason why you need to choose another name is that there is a similar name that exist, which is "SASANQUA". That account has made 200+ edits. Thanks, Pokéfan95 (talk) 00:49, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
@Pokéfan95: I changed my Newname. ウグイス (talk) 01:43, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
No global account exists for U-511, and there are no similar names of U-511. Global renaming can be done now. Pokéfan95 (talk) 04:06, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
This dragged on for way too long, but alas, it's Yes check.svg Donek6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 13:12, 28 May 2016 (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@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.

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)

@4nn1l2: Please notify the target user at their home wiki (fawiki). Thanks, Pokéfan95 (talk) 10:00, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
@Pokéfan95: Even if he or she has no edits at all? 4nn1l2 (talk) 10:14, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
@4nn1l2: Yes. Pokéfan95 (talk) 10:22, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
I changed my mind. 4nn1l2 (talk) 11:09, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

Assuming you meant you wanted to cancel your request, I'm marking this as X mark.svg Not done. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 11:42, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
