Instructions[edit]

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 ===
{{SRUC
|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 to stewards(at)wikimedia.org (direct wiki-email interface).


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.

MohammadtheEditor@global[edit]

@MohammadtheEditor: According to our records, it looks like you've been renamed before. Please note that username changes take up valuable server resources and are not something to treat lightly. Are you sure you want to proceed? —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 14:32, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
I'm not going to kill server kitties :) I regret my request. MohammadtheEditor (talk) 15:29, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
Okay then. X mark.svg Not donek6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 15:37, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

SeyitA@global[edit]

Done. It'll take some minutes before rename is complete. —MarcoAurelio 19:10, 7 December 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 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.

Exotic Girl@global[edit]

@Exotic Girl: Please notify the target user on their home wiki talk page about this request. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 00:01, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
@K6ka: Help me, please! Is there the target user home wiki talk page there or not: Stvori Suradnik:Naturalist? If it is what is the form of this request? --Exotic Girl (talk) 12:19, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
@Exotic Girl: That is their home wiki userpage. You will want their talk page, found here. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 13:23, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
@K6ka: Check, please: is it done right? Razgovor sa suradnikom:Naturalist --Exotic Girl (talk) 19:05, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
@Exotic Girl: Please notify them about this request (you should link to this request), not about whether or not they'll be editing in the future.
Also, pings don't work unless you sign your comment. If you forget to sign, your ping won't go through (see mw:Notifications/Feature_requirements#User_Mention) —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 19:20, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
@K6ka: I see. But I have a question: why I can not just take the name of the user if the name is abandoned (the user has logged 4.5 years ago (!), he has made only three minimum changes the same day, and since then no longer appear (!)?

What are the rules of usurpation in Wikipedia? Could you give me a link? --Exotic Girl (talk) 19:40, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

Exotic Girl, how hard is it for you to just notify the user about this request and then wait one month for usurpation? All other usurpation requests processed on Wikimedia have involved notifying the target user and then giving them some time to respond. You're delaying your own request by not notifying the user. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 19:50, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
@K6ka: OK... Is it right now? --Exotic Girl (talk) 20:13, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
