This isn't exactly on point

But I want to leave a quick heads up and not spend half an hour or more hunting for the most germane place to post this alert. Somebody is creating accounts impersonating Jimbo Wales. I really wish that account would be locked down—not locked, but I mean logged into on every project so this can't happen. When "Mr. Wales" replaced my page with a fake "banned indefinitely" template, I had quite a physiological response for 3 seconds before I realised I still existed, complete with my sysop powers. (It's a small project, and this is, I believe, the first "attack" of any kind we've ever received.)

Thank you. Snakesteuben 10:15, 20 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]

P.S. If I get no timely response, I'm half a mind to run a bot to do exactly what I propose, and then submit the list here for usurping. Snakesteuben 10:20, 20 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Well, did you already talk to Jimbo Wales about this? If not, you should do that first, before you do anything with his account name... --Thogo (talk) 10:29, 20 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]


I'd like to have thisone (kind-of my initials) protected. I'm active on Commons, deWP, enWP; I besides recently created accounts on arWP and wikimedia, and am able to participate in itWP and esWP, (at a low level, committedly). 18:37, 24 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]

What you are requesting is for this account to be unified. Currently the SUL system is in a testing phase, and during that phase it is only available to administrators (on any project). Locking, however, is the action of making it impossible to log in to an already unified account. Jon Harald Søby 20:56, 24 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry, I have a problem of "understanding":
  1. Do I understand right, that at this given moment it is NOT possible to prevent anyone else to create an account in some (any) WP named "WeHaWoe"?
  2. How (if at all) could this be prevented? -- 08:42, 25 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]
  1. That will be impossible until Wednesday (when SUL is turned on for everyone). But unless you have some cyber-stalker I find it highly unlikely that anyone will do that.
  2. You can go through every project and create an account (takes six-seven hours), or you can wait till Wednesday and then unify your account (takes up to 15 minutes). Jon Harald Søby 16:13, 26 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done The meta account was not in the merge list. So maybe you have a different pw and mail here with that account? Anyway, the global account Woodym555 is deleted too. But has three bureaucrats, please try to mail them and/or write on their talk pages to rename you there. Kiensvay was editing yesterday, so he might be available. Thanks. --Thogo (talk) 22:05, 27 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, they didn't have any crats when I was last there, I will mail one of them now. Woodym55 isn't registered here but unified login won't let me login here. No problem as I will never use that here, I have Woody instead. Thanks again. Woody 22:15, 27 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]

  • Please make an edit with li:user:Ruud habets confirming that you own it (like an edit to your user page that says "This account belongs to global user Ruud Habets"). I'll need to unmerge your accounts before renaming, and you can merge your accounts again afterwards; is this okay?
  • I can not rename nl:user:Ruud, because nl:user:Ruud Habets already exists; you'll need to choose one or the other.

I now have a global account (Krun), and there is only one account that I have not managed to merge. It is on I probably created that account, but I seem not to have registered an email address (it was not required at the time), and for some reason the password is different from that of my other accounts.

Hello to everyone, I'm Mess from Wikipedia in Italian language. I've followed the SUL instructions to merge my accounts (and I've done it), but unfortunately my username is usurpated by some users with low or zero contributions in the following wikiprojects:


Except for French, Japanese, Polish and Portuguese Wikipedias (in which the Mess users made some edits), I don't understand for what reason in some Wikipedias (like the English or the German) the Mess user doesn't exist but I can't create my own account in order to merge with the others! Thus, could you resolve all these conflicts with an opportune procedure? Thanks, --Mess 07:28, 1 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Hello Mess, sorry but You have to ask for rename also for users with 0 edits, all these projects have local crats, so You will have to ask on the local pages, best regards, --geimfyglið :^╡ 09:12, 1 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, sorry to say that, but imho this is a quite unnecessary work for everyone. I do not quite understand why You need to 'manage userpages' on projects where You don't plan to be active (just don't create them there, then You don't need to manage them). You might by a link or whatever land on any other language wiki again and thereby creating an account on that project (because You will automatically get logged in and thus the account is created).
Therefore I consider this request useless, like Sysiphos work it will happen again and again and again, please consider to delete Your sul and keep it deactivated if You do not wish these (imho benefit) of being logged in everywere instead of editing as IP, thanks,
best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 21:48, 1 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
I don't need an opinion on my request. I need my global account to be deleted and all my automatically-created accounts to be deleted or renamed; I voluntarily created them, but now I realize I can't manage them because they're too many. --Iho 22:15, 1 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Automatically-created accounts can not be deleted but may be renamed by local bureaucrats. Also, global accounts deletions are on hold pending bugzilla:14330. Nakon 22:21, 1 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
This is not an opinion, this is reality, please read what SUL is all about before activating it. Another reality is, that You will have to ask on every wiki locally for a rename, because the local crats have to do the renames, You have several accounts that were created by login only, they could get lost (maybe with password recovery You could get them back) forever due to a bug, if You wish to have SUL deleted anyway You can say so. Please note, that not all local wikis do renames of accounts that You can't confirm as Yours or even if You can confirm them as Yours. best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 22:25, 1 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
@Nakon: it's impossible... they're 86 projects! Meta bureaucrats can't do the work?
@birdy: you don't understand me. I don't mean I want to delete my SUL because I don't like it; I want my SUL to be deleted and all the automatically-created accounts to be renamed in order to re-create a SUL with the same nickname (Iho) without erroneously activate 86 accounts another time. I can't manage 86 accounts! I've erroneously opened them! --Iho 23:13, 1 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
I do understand what You said, but I have the feeling You did not understand why it is a senseless work: Every time You get on any project where You are not active yet an account will be created (it is already created but not shown yet, Your name is reserved everywhere), so if You rename all those accounts now, You will have to do this again and again, I would suggest You leave SUL deactivated. Also because of this bug, if we delete Your SUL now, it might happen, that You loose all the automatic created accounts and can't log in to them anymore, thus not being able to confirm they are Yours, thus people might not rename them, and as said, there are wikis who do not rename users at all (only contributors to their wikis), therefore You might cause Yourself troubles with a non complete SUL account, accounts blocking Your merge that are even Yours. Sorry, no, Meta crats only rename on Meta. Stewards only rename on wikis without (or with inactive crats). So You will have to ask each wiki locally.
Please understand, I do not wish to annoy You here, and I got the reasoning, why You wish this. But as soon as You reactivate SUL You will have the same problem again, and problably You will cause Yourself an incomplete SUL account by this procedure. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 23:22, 1 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
It's not a senseless work. Each project automatically activates an account only if a SUL-user logs in on that specific project. I have erroneously logged in on 86 projects the vast majority of which I'll never contribute to. Now I ask you to delete my global account (when the bug will be fixed) and then rename all the automatically generated 86 accounts. I want to create a new Iho SUL automatically creating accounts just on a relatively small number of projects. --Iho 23:37, 1 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
The only problem still is, You don't have to login to the project anymore, just click on it, login is now automatic... see now? --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 23:47, 1 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Hmm, I believe you are not getting what SUL really is, once your account has been fully merged, you will automatically have accounts on 730 wikis but it doesn't mean that you have to edit all those 730 wikis, it just means when you click a link to any of those wikis logged in from your home-wiki, your account will automatically be created and if you would like to make any changes to that wiki, you can do it logged into that wiki without the need to sign-up to that wiki, this is a very useful tool, and it helps users to be able to use all the wikis on wikimedia with just one password and, deleting your account and renaming those 86 accounts is a bit silly because that will create more work for the stewards who are already really busy with this. My advice to you would be to wait for the Bug to be fixed because if we delete your Global account now, you might lose all your 86 accounts and probably your homewiki as well...--Cometstyles 23:55, 1 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
I have understood just now the mechanism of SUL! =) Please close this request. I no longer want my SUL to be deleted. Thank you very much! --Iho 08:42, 2 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]

However the process seems to be incomplete - there is a User:cailil on de.wikipedia (another person) who has 4 edits since October 2007.
