Daniel

Status:    Done

I want to usurp the following account:

The account hasn't edited since 2005. The wiki has no active bureaucrats (last edit Sept 09, last log action Nov 07). I am the current global account holder of 'Daniel'. Daniel (talk) 13:43, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Have you tried contacting the user? That user seems to be the same as gl:User:Daniel, who has email enabled. --FiliP ██ 10:41, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
It is very difficult to contact the user when I cannot create an account at either of the wikis, given my SUL name is taken (I will not create dummy accounts that will be abandoned simply to email people). If you would like to email (as you have access to your SUL account on that wiki), I invite you to. Daniel (talk) 23:13, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
I emailed the user with a link to this thread. I will post any updates if I am emailed back. Ottava Rima (talk) 23:20, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
Thank you Ottava. Daniel (talk) 00:56, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
It has been a week, any response? -- Avi 14:30, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
None in response to my email. Ottava Rima (talk) 15:59, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
  • Yes check.svg Done GlWikt user renamed to "Daniel (usurped)" -- Avi 21:36, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

SKbot

Status:    Done

I want to usurp the following account

SKbot is my bot's SUL account ownered by Sergey kudryavtsev (also SUL). I try login as SKbot at Latin Wikitionary, but have wrong password message. This may be a software bug, as there are "Account created automatically" in log, but all other SKbots ownered by me (see here). Please, notify me at wikt:ru:User talk:Sergey kudryavtsev. -- SKbot 10:54, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Since the tools/logs shows different results, this is being checked. Please wait & sorry for the inconvenience. Best regards, --Dferg 13:04, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done renaming SKbot to SKbot (usurped) there. Please check if you can usurp what you want there.--Jusjih 00:31, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, now i can login there as wikt:la:SKbot. -- SKbot 15:48, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Pion

Status:    Not done, local bureaucrat did it.

I want to usurp the following account in idwiktionary:

The original user has no any edit history. Here is my SUL status, Thank you! --Pion 23:49, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

Hello Pion. Local bureaucrat «Meursault2004» seems to be active there. As I do not find any dedicated page for rename requests there I'd suggest that you contact him on his talk page (or village pump) and ask him/her to fullfil your request using Special:RenameUser. If there is any question, feel free to ask. Thank you, — Dferg (talk) 12:38, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
Thank you, I will contact wikt:id:Pembicaraan Pengguna:Meursault2004. --Pion 20:37, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
Local bureaucrat usurped the username. Now you can log in with the account «Pion» there. Verify with wikt:id:Special:MergeAccount if all is OK. Best regards, --Dferg 13:03, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Devunt

Status:    Resolved locally

I want to usurp the following accounts

--Devunt 11:02, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Hello Devunt. The local bureaucrat «Bluemask» seems to be processing renamings/usurpations per request on his talk page. Please contact him/her on his talk page with a confirmation that you hold the global account Devunt and he/she might process it. If there is any question, feel free to ask. Best regards, — Dferg (talk) 12:50, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
I request on his talk page with 211.196.200.60 when 23:10, 28 Enero 2010 (UTC). (I don't know what is a Enero) But no response--Devunt 13:53, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
Enero the Spanish name of January. I'll contact him again since he/she is active there. However, since it seems that the account is too new (created on January, 22) usurpation may not be yet possible; but that depends on the local bureaucrats. Sorry for the inconvenience. — Dferg (talk) 14:40, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
The user account at the Tagalog Wikipedia was created almost the same time as the request for usurp -- 22 January 2010. Is this account not created by the person who requested this? --Bluemask 04:00, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
But tl.wiki's account is unattached in sulutil --Devunt 08:57, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
┌─────────────┘
CentralAuth says there is no username called "Devunt" on tlwiki; but the user creation log says otherwise. Seems like a same case of #SKbot. I'm consulting this; please wait & sorry for the inconveniences. --Dferg 12:51, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
And I can't login with my username and password in tl.wiki --Devunt 14:29, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
@Dferg: I will standby for the development. --Bluemask 05:33, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
Well, we've discussed the issue in our list. I think you can usurp it. It seems that we had a problem with the SUL system days ago but could be fixed now. Thanks, --Dferg 14:12, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
The username "Devunt" is now available at tl.wp. --Bluemask 13:51, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Cravix

Status:    Not done

I want to usurp the following accounts

I tried to contact this user, but all I found is "There is no e-mail address recorded for user 'Cravix'." May it be a dead account? --Cravix 01:36, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Hello, the English language Wikipedia has local bureaucrats. Please ask on this page for usurpations. Thanks for your understanding. --Dferg 14:01, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for your help!; )I'll try to communicate with them. --Cravix 05:00, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

MikeHarris

Status:    Done

While untangling a rather substantial mess of Wikimedia logins, a English Wikipedia admin wrote, "A request could be filed on meta to lock User:MikeHarris so that you don't accidentally use it again, but you would want your accounts renamed first." Now that the untangling has been accomplished on their end, I'm wondering if you would be so kind as to lock the MikeHarris account so as to prevent me from accidentally using it again, per the admin's suggestion. I'm obliged in advance for your help! WCityMike 22:30, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done locked --Jyothis 22:36, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

WCityMike (Usurped)

Status:    Not done

While untangling a rather substantial mess of Wikimedia logins, a English Wikipedia admin wrote, "A request could be filed on meta to lock ... so that you don't accidentally use it again, but you would want your accounts renamed first." Now that the untangling has been accomplished on their end, I'm wondering if you would be so kind as to lock the "WCityMike (Usurped)" account so as to prevent me from accidentally using it again, per the admin's suggestion. I'm obliged in advance for your help! WCityMike 22:30, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Mbini

Status:    Not done

I want to be renamed to MikBini with the following accounts due to conflicts with user Mbini on da.wikipedia.org, which is somebody else. I'm asking here because I cannot even read most of the project and language specific pages listed above. Thanks.

--Mbini 11:09, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Most of these projects have bureaucrats. Try searching Project:Changing username for the English wikis and simple wiki. You can try following the interwiki links from the enwiki CHU page, here. Pmlineditor alternate 11:34, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
In most cases you can just use English. Please do so for the projects having local bureaucrats. --Erwin 17:01, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

brevity

Status:    Not done

I want to usurp the following accounts

--139.18.13.136 10:17, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

These projects have local bureaucrats. Please log in and then request usurpation locally. --Erwin 17:03, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

Goodgirl

Status:    Not done

I would like to usurp the account Goodgirl on pl:WP, th:WP and zh:WP to complete my global SUL. All users have no significant contributions on the respective sites. Thank you.

--Goodgirl 16:00, 6 May 2010 (UTC) (My first home: Goodgirl)

On Polish wikipedia a bureaucrat has already taken action. --Goodgirl 22:15, 6 May 2010 (UTC) — The action is completed. --Goodgirl 10:38, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
Please also request usurpations locally on the Thai and Chinese Wikipedia. Both projects have bureaucrats, so we can't help you. --Erwin 17:06, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for your advice. I tried to do so on Chinese WP. Regards --Goodgirl 07:31, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

Coet

Status:    Done

I have usurpated the fr:User:Coet for my new account ca:User:Coet but I can't merge it. I don't know excatly what I need. Pasqual 11:46, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

You should be able to login as Coet@cawiki and then simply visit the French Wikipedia to create a new local Coet@frwiki. Please try that and let us know whether or not it works. --Erwin 17:08, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
I doesn't work. 83.38.49.94 18:04, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Perhaps with SUL-deletion as far as I can see. --Dferg (alt.) 18:11, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
In cawiki I have change my nick from Pasqual to Coet, I only can login as Coet on cawiki. Pasqual 18:20, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
SUL tool gives the registration date, and other same data, of the old user that I have usurpated. Pasqual 18:25, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
(Spanish) - Pasqual, ello se debe a que la cuenta que se usurpó tenía SUL antes, pero al renombrarla el SUL no desaparece así que hay que borrar la cuenta global para luego recrearla automáticamente. Borrar la cuenta global sólo hace que desaparezca la SUL, no la cuenta física así que no habrá problemas -de hecho es la única forma de solucionarlo- Espero poder hacerlo mañana por la mañana si no te importa esperar unas horas. Saludos, --Dferg (alt.) 20:27, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
OK, no problem. Pasqual 20:31, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
┌────────────────┘
Yes check.svg Done, now log-in with Coet at cawiki and use ca:Special:MergeAccount to create the new global account. Best regards, --Dferg 10:09, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

Joo

Status:    Not done

I own the id "Joo" on most of the wikipedia sites. Can I claim "Joo" on zh.wikipedia.org and commons. wikimedia.org too?

Both projects have active bureaucrats. Please request on individual wikis.
Thanks. --Jyothis 06:14, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Sodacan

Status:    Not done

I want to usurp the following account ko:Sodacan in the Korean wiki. But I cannot speak Korean so I don't know who to contact or how to request it, please help. --Sodacan 10:14, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Please try some one in this list. PuzzletChung has edited recently, so you may try his talk page first. --Jyothis 13:25, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Nocturno Culto

Status:    Not done

I want to usurp the following account [1] in the English wikipedia. He or she does not have an userpage so I don't know if the account is active and I can't contact the user. Thank you. --Nocturno Culto 19:55, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Not done. Sorry Sir, but enwiki has local bureaucrats to handle this request. You'll need to ask here for usurpation requests; be sure to follow the instructions on that page. Thank you for your understanding. Regards, --Dferg 20:46, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Sonia

Status:    Not done

I want to usurp the following accounts, if it is possible:

It will probably take forever, and I apologise for that. Thank you for your troubles. --{{Sonia|talk|simpleWP}} 08:22, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

You'll have to request usurpation locally on projects having local bureaucrats. Could you please do so and remove those projects from the list above? --Erwin 17:04, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Oh, okay. I only included the projects that didn't have their own link to a renaming page (above), but it seems they all have 'crats but one. So just one now, thanks. {{Sonia|talk|simpleWP}} 07:07, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
And something else: I can't access Commons from my computer, but I'd like to usurp the account there. Is that possible at all? {{Sonia|talk|simpleWP}} 07:10, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
The fo.wikisource account is already yours so nothing to usurp here. On commons the account is unnatached so you'll need to fill an usurpation request here. Thanks, --Dferg 15:27, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
It is? Okay. What I meant is, I cannot access commons. Therefore, I cannot file a request there. So can someone file one for me or something? {{Sonia|talk|simpleWP}} 04:19, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
I'd be glad to request it for you, but I'm not sure if I can ask on your behalf to have the Sonia username usurped on commons. Jusjih, Lar, Juliancolton & Bastique are commons bureaucrats. Perhaps if you ask on one of their talk pages here at meta they can guide you. Regards, --Dferg 09:24, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
