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 = <!--don't change this line-->
|domain = global
|Oldname =
|Newname =
|reason = (your remarks here)


For global rename requests:

=== Example ===
|status     = <!--don't change this line-->
|domain     = global
|Oldname    = Example
|Newname    = Foo
|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.


X mark.svg Not done @FamilySing01: Please follow instructions on your English wiki talk page. Once you address the issue regarding your block they can rename you there. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:15, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
Ok, here’s the main reason I was blocked in a nutshell. Three years ago, just when I was getting started, I just rushed into things by creating a page regarding a business that I own, which appeared to deal with a topic in which I have a conflict of interest. Then I created another page, a book I’ve written, and both pages violated Wikipedian policy, and I got blocked indefinitely. When I tried to appeal my block recently, I tried to apologise, I tried to write it it as clear as possible, I tried to point out my mistakes, I repeatedly told them that I would not edit within the area of my interest conflict, I pleaded they unblock me on my life, but nobody took me seriously, and now I lost access to my talk page because of my “silly claims” when trying to atone for my flaws, denying that I have a conflict of interest, and being reluctant to address different subject areas I could edit within.--FamilySing01 (talk) 05:42, 25 June 2019 (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.

Confirming the above request using the target account. No need to merge the accounts, just usurp this one. --Waldyrious (talk) 21:31, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Comment Comment Naturista2018 is blocked on two projects. The block that concerns me is c:Special:Permalink/348979937#File:Feliz2019.jpg. At this time, I'd like to ask for opinions whether this request can be granted. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:39, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
