Can I take over the account in wiki ? In fact, I dont know how exactly to finish the merging process, because my nick is in conflict with at least 8 or 10 accounts all over the wikis. But it seems many of them haven't got a lot of contributions. Furthermore, in a try to talk to the spanish "asr", I've created an account "asr2" which will have to be deleted.

Thanks in advance. Asr 11:08, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Hello, all those wikis have local bureaucrats, 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 (also accounts can't be deleted, only renamed). Please note that usurping might not be possible on some projects if the accounts have edits, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 14:19, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
All rights, thanks for your patience and sorry for the convenience. Asr 07:38, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

I want to be renamed to Maksim L. with the following accounts.

--MaximLitvin 10:05, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Hello MaximLitvin! For the account on meta you have to ask a local bureaucrat or better you make a request here. Regards, Barras talk 10:10, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the hint. --MaximLitvin 10:59, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Account "Maksim L." already exists globally and locally on bewiki and meta, so your MaximLitvin account cannot be renamed to those. If you want, we can move away those local accounts so that we can merge MaximLitvin with the global Maxim L., but then you would need to prove that you hold the Maksim L. global account. --FiliP ██ 10:15, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Please, move away those local accounts so that I could merge MaximLitvin with global Maksim L.. As I can prove that I hold the Maksim L. global account? --MaximLitvin 10:59, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Comment Here is the confirmation: [1]
Note that You have at least 2 unattached accounts which You can (and should) add by going to be:special:mergeaccount. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 14:12, 17 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I know. In en: and lt: Wikis, the request has been sent. Thanks. --MaximLitvin 07:41, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

I want to usurp the following accounts

Sorry for the list, most of them are autcreated after I'd made an unified wiki for English, Afrikaans and Dutch. I have renamed my Ducth and English into Evanluxzenburg, but it seems new ones have been created. It's also ok if these accounts are deleted as renaming them is not yet possible right?

thank you --Ameerirshad 17:54, 17 February 2010 (UTC)

Hello, they are part of Your global account, You don't need to "usurp" them, they are already Yours, just log in to them. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:36, 17 February 2010 (UTC)
Hello, thank you for your reply. But actually I would like these accounts to be deleted! My original english and dutch wikipedia accounts have been renamed into Evanluxzenburg and merged again. I wasn't aware at that time that my other unified accounts would remain the same. And now there is even a new english and ducth account under the name "Ameerirshad". So basically I would like them deleted or renamed! Regards Ameerirshad 13:21, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
Hello, if this is so, that can't be done, accounts can not be deleted on wmf-projects, they can only be renamed, but if You really want to have 0 edit accounts renamed You still will have to ask that on each local wiki, since there is no global rename. And of course Your en. and accounts are there again, if You don't log out of Your global account "Ameerirshad" and if You visit that wiki. If You still want the renames You could only ask for rename here for the account on and ar.quote, because these projects have no local bureaucrats, the others seem to have, so You need to ask there.

--Fredericks 03:13, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

You should request the rename at zh:维基百科:更改用戶名/帳戶易手, as that project has both local bureaucrats and an in-place system to handle rename requests. Add {{subst:usurp|Current_Name|Name_To_Usurp}} ~~~~ to the bottom of the page and monitor the request until finished, please. Kylu 03:18, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi was wondering about usurp the account Ceoil on commons. It has no edits. I have access to this username on most other projects (active mostly on en). Thanks. Ceoil 23:42, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Commons has its own bureaucrats and rename process, please request at commons:Commons:Changing username/usurp requests Kylu 23:51, 26 February 2010 (UTC)
It has been completed at commons so this can be archived now. Ottava Rima 14:52, 1 March 2010 (UTC)


Please help in the creation of SUL. After the usurpation account Antonu (before that I was Mailtoanton) in RuWiki I can not create a single account. How can I do this? Bureaucrats from the Russian wikipedia advised to contact you. Please help me rename in enwiki (from Mailtoanton to Antonu) and make SUL. Thanks in advance. Antonu 20:34, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Hello, if the local account "Antonu" on ru.wikipedia is Yours, just go to ru:special:mergeaccount and merge it. Best regards, --geimfyglið :^╡ 20:14, 27 February 2010 (UTC)
Yes, Its mine, but this page ru:special:mergeaccount doesnt work. Im triying to enter my passowrd of RuWiki account and it displays a message "Введённый вами пароль неверен." (Your password is incorrect). Bureaucrats from Ruwiki say that probably the previous user Antonu created an empty, unused SUL and in your powers to eliminate it. Antonu 08:15, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
Aha, I see, the global account owner "Antonu" was renamed to something else... of course his SUL stayed. A steward should be able to help You by just deleting the sul unification. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 08:27, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your advice. So now I'm waiting when the stewards removed SUL so again I was able to create it under the usurped account. Antonu 09:34, 28 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi there. Sorry if I am in the wrong place. I have been using this SUL account for some time now, but it seems that another Eusebius account appeared on dewiki, somehow "ejecting" me out of my SUL for this project. I have never been very active on this project, but as a Commons admin I sometimes have to make minor edits and would like to have my account back (I'm pretty sure I had some contribts there, but I might be mistaken). The current de:Eusebius account doesn't seem to have any contribs and I'm not sure what happened there. It has no registration date, only an Editor flag. Also, the following accounts are unattached to my SUL and do not seem active, but there is no urgent need to usurp them:

Thanks in advance. --Eusebius 13:56, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Hello, all those wikis have local bureaucrats, 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 (:> )=| 14:08, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
The issue on de:WP looks more serious, there is no account named Eusebius, and yet I cannot access my SUL account there. I need to edit there with my account (for maintenance issues related to my Commons admin tasks), and I cannot. And unfortunately I can't speak German. --Eusebius 11:21, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, this is wrong, on the account "Eusebius" exists locally, You need to ask for usurp, as said above, they understand English. You can't find the registration date in the log because it was registered before they had logs for that. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 22:26, 19 February 2010 (UTC)
How can I contact bureaucrats on a wiki for which I don't have an account without exposing my IP? --Eusebius 10:54, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
Just create an account like "Eusebius-temp" or something, local requestpage is there. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 13:55, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
Rather create a useless account than give a hand. OK, got the message. I'll try not to bother stewards anymore. Thanks. --Eusebius 14:39, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
And please do not forget a link by your Eusebius account should be given to the crats which confirms that the requestion user (e.g. Eusebius-temp) is allowed to usurp it. Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 14:55, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
Which Eusebius account? The one I don't control? --Eusebius 15:16, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
No, with your account here. Or link to this discussion as Ottava did. Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 15:17, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
I left a note at Benutzernamens-Übernahme at de. I would perform what I did for Ceoil, but I cannot read German enough to follow the individual instructions, so I left a note referring back to here. Ottava Rima 14:57, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
Seen, thanks. --Eusebius 15:16, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
Problem solved on de, please archive. --Eusebius 20:27, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done I've gone ahead and changed your list to the linked list as requested on the page header. All of these projects have local bureaucrats, so the requests should not be made here (See the top of this page). There is a list of pages where you can request renames locally at Index of pages where renaming can be requested, and on projects with no local page, you can simply request a rename on a bureaucrat's talkpage.

This SUL account was created to impersonate me, as confirmed by checkuser. See local rename log. Request the global account be deleted so that I can create a doppelganger account in this name. Tim Song 03:17, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

you already have one SUL account [2] for yourself? oscar 03:25, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Yes. The problem here is that someone created "Tim song" to impersonate me, so I would like to take over that name so that I can create a doppelganger account; but since the SUL account still exists, I cannot create that doppelganger. Tim Song 03:30, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Hello Ingber. Swedish Wikipedia has local bureaucrats, please ask here for renaming or usurpation requests, thanks. Also please take note that on some wikis usurpations might not be possible if the account has edits or is too new. Thank you, — Dferg (talk) 22:29, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
