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 ===
|status =
|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.

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.

@根川孝太郎: Please provide a reason for renaming. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 01:47, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
It is because it is a user name that was requested. In addition, this account is registered only, there is no activity record.

Face-smile.svg Translation:
I always wished I had to change my username. Also this account has user creation log only and doesn't have contribs.

Logged as Flordeneu to confirm ownership of both accounts. Flordeneu (talk) 19:19, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
@Andromeda~enwiki: -just to clarify- you wanna change your name from (Andromeda~enwiki) to (Flordeneu) globally, yes? --Alaa :)..! 12:35, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
Yes, that's it. Thanks! Andromeda~enwiki (talk)
@Andromeda~enwiki: Flordeneu will changed to Flordeneu (usurp), okay? --Alaa :)..! 09:14, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
Do you mean Andromeda~enwiki will become Flordeneu and Flordeneu will become Flordeneu (usurp)? If that, then OK.
Andromeda~enwiki (talk) 20:35, 23 May 2017 (UTC)
I think that later it will be possible to re-attach your old account eswiki@Flordeneu to newly renamed Flordeneu (former Andromeda~enwiki) account. Ruslik (talk) 11:45, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
If possible, that would be great! Thanks! Andromeda~enwiki (talk) 21:59, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: ? --Alaa :)..! 10:10, 27 May 2017 (UTC)
Is there a problem? If the merger is not possible, don't worry, It's fine. Thanks! Andromeda~enwiki (talk) 01:59, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Please, login to re-unify your account. Ruslik (talk) 10:05, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
