Requests for usurpation or deleting global accounts


Status:    Done

Hello. Unsure where to turn I came here. I obtained en:User:Rambo on following an SUL request there.[1] I then had a Rambo on en.quote moved so I could obtain the SUL.[2] However, after that was moved I was unable to create the account Rambo on wikiquote because it said it had blocked the username because it belonged to a unified login and the problem didn't seem able to be resolved over there.[3] Now the unified account isn't mine, if I try and manage it from it asks me for a password to migrate to the global account but I don't own the global account. However the toolserver says there are no accounts attatched.[4] I think the problem must come from their previously being a global account (I'm guessing the wikiquote one) and it had no accounts attatched to it. This might explain the SUL information of "User registration: 17:59, 27 August 2009" (before the one was even made) and "Home wiki: ???". What I'm requesting, for someone to delete the existing global account (if there is one) so I can create it from and obtain the wikiquote account. Or, alternatively, a solution to my problem. Thanks for your time,

Are all Rambo accounts yours? 21:42, 10 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
It's pretty likely, since that account made edits. Sounds like a global account delete is needed, as while it exists you'll be unable to create the account on those projects. Do you want to check to make sure that the "Rambo" account on other projects with edits are available first? The accounts on commons, enwikinews, huwiki, jawiki, and rowiki all have edits - You already mentioned that enwiki is yours. Kylu 11:42, 12 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
To be honest looking at the edit counts of those accounts I feel confident requests locally would be successful. However, once usurped I still wouldn't be able to create those accounts until the global account delete is completed. Therefore, please proceed with the global delete so I can create the one I have already usurped and get started on the unification process. Thanks, Rambo's Revenge 20:42, 29 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Yes check.svg deleted - Global account had no attached accounts. Kylu 21:27, 29 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, I've now created the account on en.wikiquote and merged my two accounts. Is it possible to usurp all those accounts that aren't mine as none have a significant amount of edits. I realise some might need local requests but hopefully the others can be done. I'm unsure if ones without any edits are uncontroversial and may be done here, if not I'll guess I'll have to request them individually. Below are all the Rambo accounts that are not mine which I wish to obtain (only w:hu, w:ja, w:ro, n:en, and commons have any edits). Thanks in advance, Rambo's Revenge 22:26, 29 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Please see Index of pages where renaming can be requested and request locally on all projects with local bureaucrats. If a project has active, local bureaucrats, we can not perform the rename here. Meta should be done on the linked page, even though it's located on the same project as this page, and was just added to the list. We'll handle Turkish Wikiquote, but please make some headway on your local requests first. Kylu 22:55, 29 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Request fulfilled at Commons. Requests posted at wikinews and Meta. I didn't realise you couldn't fulfil requests here for sister projects with crats. If any steward has crat status on an above listed project I would appreciate them fulfilling the request otherwise I'll slowly attempt to place individual requests locally. Rambo's Revenge 16:52, 30 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Unfortunately, that's how the system works. Projects are created to be semi-autonomous initially, and we simply don't have the right to step in and override the local community. The burden, frankly, it squarely placed on the shoulders of the person requesting the renames - it was never intended to be simple to bulk-rename or usurp accounts. Kylu 15:23, 31 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Okay I understand. However, I do think on projects with a tiny handful of crats who may be semi/inactive this is a bit roundabout to request there, wait, then relist here. Currently, I've listed requests at all english speaking projects as they have less burden. Rambo's Revenge 15:35, 31 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Yep, but them's the rules. Keep in mind that the majority of bureaucrats out there on non-English projects can speak the language just fine, by the way. If you don't grok the local language, they can still communicate with you. Kylu 15:39, 31 August 2010 (UTC)[reply]
In posting requests the is not listed at the Index of pages where renaming can be requested. How do I go about changing that one, or is it done here? Rambo 11:50, 17 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]
I don't find a local page for renames, but as all the bureaucrats are en-3 or better, it doesn't matter so much. Just ask one of them on their talkpage. (Hint: Check contributions for them first to make sure you get an active bureaucrat.) Kylu 16:21, 21 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]
All these have been done except the one without crats. Can this be done so this can be completed. Thanks, Rambo 23:35, 16 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Done at trwikiquote. Old "Rambo" account usurped & renamed to "Rambo (usurped)". --dferg ☎ talk 23:42, 16 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Hello. I have been renamed on the ka wikipedia by local beaurocrat.

Hi, I'm Blasphemer on he.wikipedia. I want to usurp the en Blasphemer account. the SUL page says it has unknown registration date, and has not edited articles at all. I wish to contribute to English Wikipedia with the same account. 19:25, 26 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]

X mark.svg Not done The English Wikipedia has bureaucrats and a process to perform this function locally. Please visit en:WP:CHU, read the directions there, and follow them in order to request the usurpation. We do not perform usurpations on projects with active bureaucrats.

Thank you, doing as you have suggested. Blasphemer1978 12:27, 27 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Delete global account - A user on wishes to take the name D winchy. It had been used as a sockpuppet, blocked, and then I tried to carry out the usurp (thinking the global account for D winchy would be freed up), but apparently there is still a global account with no home wiki. –xeno 18:09, 8 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]
