I want to have the SUL "I-20" deleted. It is of an blocked user in enwikibooks and I'd like to rename myself to it. Thanks! OpenTheWindows 15:47, 23 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Hi. My problem is similar to that of Petrick; there seems to be an account with the same account name as mine on the Portuguese Wikipedia (pt:Usuário:Shinryuu), however since its creation in 2006 it has never been used, and on its user page it says that this account does not exist - probably an error of some kind? Merging of my global accounts will not complete and is shown as "In migration" for more than a month now, and I suppose it is for this reason. I would therefore like to ask for manual unification of my accounts. -- Shinryuu 12:41, 11 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

The Portuguese Wikipedia has local bureaucrats, so I'm afraid you'll have to request this locally. Please add your request to w:pt:Wikipedia:Renomeação de conta. --Erwin 19:47, 13 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Hi! I'm es:Usuario:Laz and en:User:Laz. I tried to unify my accounts, but saw that there was a unification in progress, by the user sharing it:utente:Laz, User:Laz and ru:Участник:Laz. I noticed that this user asked on Oct 24, 2008 be renamed to Lazzas. Can the rename be performed at least on meta? And, as the user writes "Lazzas (my new global account)" can the current process of unification of the user name "Laz" be cancelled so I can initiate one myself? 16:58, 10 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

This has to be dealt with by Meta bureaucrats. Please add your request to Meta:Changing username. Depending on the outcome the global account can be deleted. So for now, I'll close this request. --Erwin 19:50, 13 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Hello! I already got registration in ruwiki. When I try to get global account, I saw that in some wiki-projects this nickname is occupired. I check the activity of accounts (registered by this nickname - and saw, that the one in enwiki haven't been used - registration date is 29 July 2007 and the number of editcounts is zero. So I ask you to union the acounts (nickname=Petrick) in ruwiki and enwiki, by my domination and password (I use this nickname in ruwiki and want to create the global account). Sorry for some language or template mistakes.

-- 23:56, 28 May 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Both these projects have local bureaucrats, so I'm afraid you'll have to request these name changes locally. Please see Index of pages where renaming can be requested for the rights pages to add your request to. --Erwin 19:51, 13 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

I want to usurp the following account:

For information only (these wikis has a bureaucrats, i will ask them for usurpation later):

SKbot is my bot's SUL account ownered by Sergey kudryavtsev (also SUL). I try login as SKbot at these domains of Wikisource, but have wrong password message and there are "Account created automatically" in logs (the same situation was in Latin Wiktionary, see #SKbot above). All these accounts was created yesterday, 28 April 2010, (see [1]). I suggest that some harmful persone uses a software bug to take control other SUL-accounts. -- SKbot 08:35, 29 April 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Stewards please see the stewards-l post [private] regarding this possible bug. --Dferg 10:18, 29 April 2010 (UTC)[reply]

I reject my reqest, because it turned out, that my e-mail is associated with these local accounts. I reset password via email and manually join the local accounts with my SUL. SpeedyGonsales, the bureaucrat of Croatian Wikisource, suggest such way to me, thank him much. -- SKbot 20:32, 19 May 2010 (UTC)[reply]

I need my global account removed, since I have a Commons account created for no reason since I was being renamed to User:Puffy on Commons and enwiki too. Please delete my global account so that I can file a change on Commons for the accidentally-created account. Thanks, Andewz111 22:31, 18 May 2010 (UTC)[reply]

It's possible to rename a local account even if it is attached to a global one. So deleting your global account is not necessary. --Erwin 19:54, 13 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Due to SUL merging process, I'd like to usurp the following account:

Thanks! Nazar 21:59, 19 May 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Nazar! Russian WQ has crats to rename your account; have you contacted them? Pmlineditor  11:16, 20 May 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Ye. I just found a list of 2 of them half an hour ago. But I wasn't able to find any page for requests of this kind. I'm not sure if the crats are very active there. Maybe it would be easier if you did it from here (so I don't have to contact them personally). Thanks in advance! Nazar 11:20, 20 May 2010 (UTC)[reply]
No, if there are crats (and they are active, even in other projects), there's no need for stewards to meddle. --FiliP ██ 11:21, 20 May 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Well, ok. Then do the UK WB only. I asked the UK guys and they directed me here. Nazar 11:23, 20 May 2010 (UTC)[reply]
(edit conflict) Additionally, Aleksandrit seems to be active enough. If there's no page for that, personal requests on user talk pages usually work. ukwikibooks one is Yes check.svg Done, however. --FiliP ██ 11:24, 20 May 2010 (UTC)[reply]

The local bureaucrat has asked the Meta Stewards to help with the procedure because he has got no time to learn how to do that (see below for details). -- Nazar 15:11, 22 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

There are no special pages for this kind of requests on the above Wiki Projects.

They all have bureaucrats, but these don't seem to be active in their mission.

I've addressed the HI Wikipedia bureaucrats on en:User_talk:Hemanshu#SUL_Merge and en:User_talk:Mitul0520#SUL_Merge (as they seem to have been much more active on English Wikipedia than on the Hindi one). I also e-mailed the main HI Wikipedia bureaucrat Hemanshu (who made his last contribution over 40 days back). The other one was last active back in September 2009 :) There's a 3rd bureaucrat there too, but that one wasn't active for even much longer period, so I thought the 2 more active would suffice for the time being.. No reaction from them so far... So maybe you'd kindly help me here...

The Hindi Wikipedia bureaucrat has replied as cited below. Hope this gives you the green light to proceed with the merge from here. Thanks! -- Nazar 08:08, 17 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Regarding the TA Wiktionary bureaucrat, I observed that he's actually more active on TA Wikipedia, and I posted my request on his talk page there: ta:பயனர்_பேச்சு:Ravidreams#SUL_Merge, as well as on his talk page in English Wikipedia: en:User_talk:Ravidreams#SUL_Merge. Accordingly to the log of his user contributions on TA Wikipedia, he made a few dozens of edits after my requests have been posted, but he seems to ignore the messages on his talk pages... I'd request some help here, if possible...

The Tamil Wiktionary bureaucrat has replied below requesting the Meta Stewards to help with the merge. Hope you'll be able to proceed with the merge from here. Thanks! -- Nazar 08:08, 17 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

I've addressed the two available Arabic Wiktionary Bureaucrats on their respective talk pages both in Arabic Wikipedia -- ar:نقاش_المستخدم:Chaos#SUL_Merge and ar:نقاش_المستخدم:Lord_Anubis#SUL_merge (where they seem to be most active, making at least a few edits per month), and also on their talk pages in English Wikipedia (where they are generally a bit less active) -- en:User talk:Chaos#SUL_Merge and en:User talk:Lord Anubis#SUL_Merge. No reaction so far. Help would be appreciated!

Nazar 12:56, 28 May 2010 (UTC)[reply]

I've noticed some activity of en:User:Hemanshu on Hindi Wikipedia and sent him another request to his talk page there -- hi:सदस्य_वार्ता:Hemanshu#SUL_Merge. However, shortly after that he replied to my talk page in English Wikipedia as follows: "Hi Nazar, I am no longer an active admin at Hindi Wikipedia. Sorry!" (see en:User_talk:Nazar#SUL_merging). I hope this gives you enough rights to proceed with the merge from here. -- Nazar 16:36, 2 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, I am Ravidreams, Bureacrat in Tamil Wiktionary. Due to time constraints I am unable to find out how to do the SUL Merge. I request the stewards to help in this. The current user Nazar in Tamil Wiktionary has no contributions. So, the above request can be granted. Thanks--Ravidreams 07:11, 17 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

It does not work. I can't log in to Hindi Wikipedia with my SUL. Maybe you should rename my temporary account NazarK to Nazar? That's how I understand it (and that's how they did it on other Wiki Projects). -- Nazar 11:23, 27 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]
No, you just have moved his user page via hi:Special:MovePage. But you should use hi:Special:RenameUser where you can change their names. Kind regards, —DerHexer (Talk) 21:05, 27 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Correctly said. I had just changed the usser page to the new one. But this time, I think the username Nazar has been changed to Nazar-usurped. --Ashish BhatnagarPlume pen w.giftalk 14:32, 28 June 2010 (UTC)[reply]

somehow on wiktionary "my" preferred global username is already registered, has no edits, nor an email address associated with it. I had searched my gmail archives for an ack, no avail, tried to have a new password sent, and found no email existed. Just in case there was another wiktionarian using k3vin, I checked user edits and found none. I can only surmise, that some time prior to Dec 12, 2005, I registered, and had not been using my EPM (Easy Password Mnemonic) such that I cannot figure it out.
