SUL rename Maksatmp to Maksa

The following discussion is closed.

Please rename my SUL Maksatmp to Maksa. Maksatmp 22:44, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

If it is still not possible, please rename Maksatmp in all wikis without local bureaucrats (and usurp it here in meta). I have created SUL Maksatmp (with home ru-wiki) some months ago hoping to rename it afterwards, so it could be nice to move Maksatmp to Maksa in all Wikimedia projects (except for en, fi, fr and hu where I should ask to usurp existing names). Maksatmp 07:51, 5 November 2009 (UTC)
As you don't have contributions on most projects I suggest only requesting a name change at the English Wikipedia. You can do that at w:en:Wikipedia:Changing username. --Erwin 18:39, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
I have already requested the new name at the English Wikipedia because en:Maksa was not free. However, I have some edits at Swedish, Italian and some other projects and want to keep my contribution. Should I request rename at all of these projects or there is a possibility to rename the SUL Maksatmp? Thank you. Maksatmp, 18:18, 8 November 2009 (UTC)
Yes, you'll need to request renaming at all those projects. It is not possible to rename all your accounts at once. --Erwin 10:01, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
OK, I have almost done it. But it seems that there are no local bureaucrats in myv-wiki, so could you rename Maksatmp to Maksa there? As well as here in Meta. Maksatmp 23:30, 24 November 2009 (UTC)

I don't know this is the right place or not for my issue. Dear, I have a global account named jayantanth including Bengali Wikipedia. I am an administrator in Bengali wikibooks with this account. But I am an administrator in Bengali wikipedia with this bn:user:joy. So please delete only my bn:user:jayantanth account from Bengali Wikipedia, Then I request to local bureaucrat rename my account bn:user:joy to bn:user:jayantanth. Or suggest what to do. Thanks in advance. I think you have to unmerge my all Jayantanth account and then delete bn:user:jayantanth-- Jayantanth 17:46, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

We can't delete accounts, only rename them from one name to another, so the solution would be:
  1. The bureaucrat at can just rename bn:user:Jayantanth to something else (for example "Jayantanth (old)") and then bn:user:joy to bn:user:Jayantanth.
  2. Then You go to bn:special:mergeaccount (make sure to log out before going to and then log in to the accountname "Jayantanth") and merge "Jayantanth" to the global account "Jayantanth"

This is probably the wrong forum for this request, but I was hoping to at least receive direction on where to take it. In the course of my login unification, I appear to have picked up several accounts that do not belong to me (at least, I never opened actively opened them on these sites): namely, Myasuda on,,, and How do I remove these accounts from the unification? Also, the unification process has stated that it could not unify the Myasuda accounts at and which is correct, as these accounts do not belong to me. Can I simply stop the unification process at this point, having already unified the three accounts belonging to me? — Myasuda 01:35, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

If you passively visit a site (simply reading a page while logged in to a different site works), it will create an account on that site for you automatically. This is what happened with meta, ja, ru, and zh wikipedias.
The accounts on enwikibooks and mediawikiwiki both have zero contributions, so there shouldn't be any problem with your requesting these accounts be renamed:
The account on has been renamed for you by a local bureaucrat, VasilievVV.
The account on was renamed similarly by a local bureaucrat, Mike_lifeguard.
Don't forget to thank these two hard-working volunteers! :D Kylu 02:09, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

We have no way of force-merging that account for you, unfortunately. Considering that the en.wikipedia account has zero edits, it is perhaps easier for you to request that a local bureaucrat rename the account away (usurpation) and simply migrate your new global account to en.wikipedia from there. When visiting new projects, such as this one, please make sure you're logged in. Just type your username and password as if you already had an account on that project.

Hi! I would like to usurp User:Cherry, in order to get an unified login under the name "Cherry". I'm the french fr:User:Cherry, and the actual user under all the accounts below :

As User:Cherry already exists on meta, I wasn't able to get an account under this name. So could I usurp User:Cherry here on meta, to be able to merge my others accounts under the right name ? CherryB 12:25, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done as local bureaucrat, Cherry -> Cherry (Usurped), do you want CherryB renamed to Cherry? Kylu 16:15, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Yes please! CherryB 17:07, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Also done. Please log out and log back in as Cherry. Kylu 17:09, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Done. Is it normal that I don't see the SUL account as existing on this page? Cherry 17:18, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Go to special:mergeaccount next, start combining. It's a very common username, though, so you'll have a few on other projects that don't end up under your control. If you want to edit on those projects, you'll want the other Cherries renamed: See Index of pages where renaming can be requested (They can't be requested here for projects with local bureaucrats, sorry.).

I would like to usurp the account User:Alexis to make an unified login. I am the Norwegian no:Bruker:Alexis. Thanks. --Alex norway123 21:05, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Which Alexis do you want to usurp? There's a few of them on different projects. Kylu 21:09, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
I want to usurp the nowiki user. --Alex norway123 21:30, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
nowiki has a request page.  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 18:19, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

I want to be renamed to E.G. with the following accounts // I want to usurp the following accounts

--E.G-q. 20:26, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

The first one, at sv:, is my own original account, and I have the same name in many language versions but just not the rest of the ones her listed. E.G-q. 20:54, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Sadly all of those have active local crats so the stewards won't be able to do it. Happily it is only 3 projects so that isn't to hard for you. I've listed the local pages to make the request below James (T|C) 21:01, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
OK, thanks. E.G-q. 21:04, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi Stewards!

I want to usurp User:Evangeline on the Chinese wiki:

That user seems to have no edits or Userpage.

I made the request on the appropriate page a couple of weeks ago but no answer. Today I checked and the two bureaucrats who seem to be responsible are not available, according to their Userpages—one is having health problems and the other is taking a "Wikivacation" till March. Do I have to wait till then?

Thanks, Evangeline 05:47, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

The wiki has at least 6 active bureaucrats [7]. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 19:27, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I guess I will just keep waiting for them to notice my request! Thanks. Evangeline 03:30, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
You can try and leave a message on one of the bureaucrat's talk pages. --Erwin 18:10, 18 January 2010 (UTC)


Status:    Done

I merged Pmlinediter into Pmlineditor's global account on wikis where they have 5 or more edits and there are no active bureaucrats, since it will be more difficult to do after their Synchbot request.

User:Phips to User:Фипс

Status:    Done

I would like s:bg:User:Phips to be renamed to s:bg:User:Фипс in bulgarian Wikisource (no bureaucrats there). I own both User:Phips (fast, but not fully globalized) and User:Фипс (a new one, same in cyrillic alphabet) and I'm aimig to free the first one for the en:Phips. Фипс's consent.
