Requests for usurpation or deleting global accounts[edit]

Usurp request Vajo[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

I want to usurp the following accounts

--Vajo 19:44, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Hello, all those wikis have local crats, please ask for renames there (interwikilinks to the requestpages can be found on this page, or type special:listusers/bureaucrat into the searchfield on the local wiki), thanks. Please note that usurping might not be possible on some projects if the accounts have edits, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 19:46, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Usurp request Izzudin[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

I want to be renamed to Niduzzi with the following accounts

--Izzudin 06:17, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Hello, the username exists on id.wiki and two others, [2], please can You give a confirmation on id.wiki that this is Your account, if it is not Yours I would not rename to that name, because You would cause this user SUL problems (and Yourself). On sm.wikipedia the rename makes no sense, the account has 0 edits, why would You need a rename there?
Thanks, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:20, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
Yes it is my account, how should I confirm it? The other 2 are my newly renamed account. Izzudin 12:34, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
Hello, You could confirm it if You log in to that account and leave a note on the talkpage, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 14:16, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
Done. Izzudin 14:56, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
Thanks, Yes check.svg Done all three, (for the record: [3]). To merge the accounts You need to go to id:special:mergeaccount, beware to log out afterwards to avoid automatic created accounts until all Your accounts are renamed. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 15:09, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

Usurp request Anakreon[edit]

Sorry, did not want to choke. Just on this page is not their addresses.--Anakreon 07:56, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
No problem :) But it is on this page (see interwikilinks at the left): [4], I will add it to the other page now too, thanks for the hint, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 09:39, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

I'm en:User:Tonyle and es:User:Tonyle among others. Here is my unified account.

axpde[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

No idea wheather I'm right or not, but I have a problem to "re-enter" my SUL-account on zh-yue WP: ([5]). I alread made two edits but when returning the next day I wasn't able to login. I already tried to change my password (it has special chars so I thought that may be the reason ...).

When running the sul-util it lists my login on zh-hue as "unattached" !?! Can please someone help me? Thanks in advance! axpdeHello! 00:30, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

The account on zh-yue does not show up on centralAuth. Please can You try the following: try to login to that account with Your old password (try all old passwords You had before sul!), if that does not work, please try to recover the password via the email-recovery. Then go to zh-yue:special:mergeaccount to merge the account.
If all this does not work the only option would be to usurp it.
Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 00:34, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
Heaven ... can you tell me how I was able to ignore the button "send new password" completely? I already searched for this function everywhere else ... having right below my nose :( ... thank you for opening my eyes, was able to integrate the next project into my SUL :) axpdeHello! 00:44, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
Sehr fein :) freue mich, dass es geklappt hat, lG., --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 00:48, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Bjs-nl[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

Hello, I am user de:Benutzer:Bjs and have a global account with this name and de-wiki as a home wiki Since my request for usurpation of nl:user:Bjs was refused, I created a local account nl:user:Bjs-nl there. I the wanted to mark up some pages of my global account Bjs, but unfortunately did not log off before. So I created some accounts for the global account Bjs-nl instead of Bjs. In order to avoid such errors in the future, please delete my global account Bjs-nl. Greetings --Bjs-nl 15:04, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 15:12, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for the fast response. --Bjs 15:21, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
One more question: what's about the users created on various projects? Should they also be deleted or left without edits as they are? --Bjs 15:27, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
Since You are using the other account on these projects they should not bother You much, I would leave them as they are, since accounts can not be deleted, only renamed it would not make much sense to move them to another name ~
Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 15:30, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
No, another name would be no solution at all. So we let them rest there in peace. Thank you for the answer. --Bjs 15:32, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Harold[edit]

Hi, please delete my global account, I need to rename my account commons:User:Harold17 to commons:User:Harold (this account is my too). --Harold 16:16, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Hello, reanming an account to or from a global account works (the bug had been fixed some months ago, see top), best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 16:16, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
(P.S. if the local crats ask for that please link the discussion here, I can explain it then there. They just need to rename commons:User:Harold to something else (the autocreated one), and then commons:User:Harold17 to commons:User:Harold. deletion of local accounts is not possible, deletion of global account would mean only to delete the attachement between all attached local accounts) Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 16:22, 15 December 2008 (UTC))

Thanks for the explanation. I didn 't know. :-) --Harold 16:28, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Not a problem, that's what this site is for :) Good luck and happy sul-ing :o) --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 16:29, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Rudget[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

I am Rudget on a large majority of the wikis that I'm active on (and unified under a few months ago) however, I was recently renamed on the main hub of my activity, the English Wikipedia, and now that's delocalised from the others, everytime I want to login into the other accounts I log in as Rudget - but this then logs me out as my new username on en.wiki and signs me in as Rudget (since the unification name still exists on en.wiki). If you could, I would like to request the SUL be deleted and I will possibly request individual renames on each wiki I'm active on. Thanks. Rudget (talk) 13:33, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

Hello, if You wish we could also only deattach "Rudget" on en.wiki and leave SUL active until You decide to have renames everywhere? If You don't prefer this, please let us know, thanks, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 00:14, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
Yes, that would be great. Thank you. Rudget (talk) 15:57, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done, I have unmerged Rudget@enwiki for You, if this does not work as expected let me know. If You wish to remerge it at a later time again, please go to en:special:mergeaccount. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 17:51, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Gew[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

I want to usurp the following accounts

Footnote/justification claim: I've been registered to Wikipedia (SV/EN versions) for I don't know how many years, holding on to my alias. Now when I go for SUL; i begin to understand why a request for new password was sent to me by e-mail, without me having asked for it. So, the CS user is who I want loose.

Also, I have a slight feeling that I registered to the Wikicommons with the same username, but I cannot recall the password for that account anyway. So, I therefore claim to usurp the "Gew" account at Wikicommons also. I wasn't sure what abbreviation code is used for W-commons, so I only stated out the cs.w above, if gentle steward could fill in the appropriate line, it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance! --193.10.32.241 00:09, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

@Footnote: don't worry about password requests sent to You when You did not request them, if someone tried that he would not have any gain of it, because only You know the new temporary password, You can ignore it and continue to use Your old password.
@request: all those wikis have local crats, please ask for renames there (interwikilinks to the requestpages can be found on this page, or type special:listusers/bureaucrat into the searchfield on the local wiki), thanks. Please note that usurping might not be possible on some projects if the accounts have edits, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 00:19, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Luckyboy[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

I want to usurp the following accounts

Footnote/justification claim: When I first subsribed to it.wiki as Luckyboy, I found the username already taken in en.wiki, so I choosed Luckyboy1965 here on en.wiki. It appears that the user Luckyboy on en.wiki is no longer active. I asked to a local italian crat for help, but he redirected me here, because he said it's not possible to merge two different accounts. I hope for your help. - Luckyboy1965 21:55, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Hello, we can't merge accounts. Accounts can only be renamed from one name to another (it would also be very strange to merge Your account with contributions of a different user), if en.wiki allows You to usurp the account, they can rename it to something else and then Your other account to this name, but en.wiki and commons has local crats, so please ask for renames there (interwikilinks to the requestpages can be found on this page, or type special:listusers/bureaucrat into the searchfield on the local wiki), thanks. Please note that usurping might not be possible on some projects if the accounts have edits, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 00:34, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Luckas-bot[edit]

The following discussion is closed.

I want to delete from Luckas-bot's global account the following wikis, because my bot doesn't edit on it:

--Lucas Nunes (talk) 15:36, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done, this is senseless, just don't use Your bot there, it will happen that there are autocreations on other projects where You might not want to run. Please read about sul, and if You don't want a global account anymore we can delete the whole unification, but removing attached accounts just because You are not active there is a Sisyphean task and that is not what this function is for, thanks for Your understanding, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 02:42, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

asgar@fa.wiki[edit]

I want to usurp the following accounts:

--Asgar 03:07, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

One of the local bureaucrats, fa:User:Behaafarid, has edited today. You'll want to ask that user. Kylu 03:11, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your support - I didn't see it before posting. Right-to-left-writing confused me a bit. --Asgar 03:32, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
It's done - this can be archived / deleted / whatever. --Asgar 15:56, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Alainna@mediawiki[edit]

I would like to usurp the following account:

The account has no activity on it. My current global account is en:User:Alainna and the mediawiki is the only conflict. I'm thinking that it was me who created the account, which would've been with my old e-mail address which has since been deleted. Thank you and regards, L 10:07, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi, I as a local crat on mediawiki have usurped the nick to something else allowing you to click a link to that wiki which will automatically create an account for you ...--Cometstyles 10:13, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
Oh! Thank you very much, User:Cometstyles! I didn't expect this to be resolved so quickly. Warm regards, L 10:20, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
