Yes check.svg Done on ml.wikipedia Vssun. 06:17, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
  • User has not usurped the ar.wikipedia account, but also has not requested it there or followed their procedure. Marking as "closed" due to one last project and no further requests from this user. Kylu 03:00, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
Hi. I have reopened the above request in good faith. Because, in case you didn't notice, I just requested for the ar.wiki today. ;) Azeez 03:08, 22 October 2010 (UTC)
Update: Done for ar.wiki; done for all. Thanks everyone. Kind regards. Azeez 02:46, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Striker

Status:    Done

When I started to contribute to other wikis than my local one, I've got to usurp those accounts, but they're too many and I don't know where to start. I don't speak all those languages! I know some of those wikis may have active bureaucrats, but I'm lost... Could you help me usurp as many as possible of said accounts?

Striker 21:59, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done for simplewiki. -Barras 22:08, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
Tagged all the ones I know have bureaucrats. I-20the highway 02:33, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
There is no Cantonese Wiktionary. Perhaps you would mean Cantonese Wikipedia. I have tagged more wikis with local bureaucrats.Jusjih 01:35, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Since there are no projects without bureaucrats left I'm marking this as done. --Erwin 09:15, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Objectivist

Status:    Not done
According to the Login Unification page, I have accounts at these places in WikiMedia:
 * en.wikipedia.org
 * en.wikisource.org
 * en.wikiversity.org
 * meta.wikimedia.org
 * simple.wikipedia.org
 * wikisource.org
And I believe that is correct.
However, it appears someone else uses the name here:
 * en.wikibooks.org
Because so far as I recall, I've never used that site. I recognize the benefits of having a unified account, but I also want to be polite. I'd like to request a kind of "lockdown" on the use of my username on all the other Wikimedia sites not listed above, to prevent any other/future duplications. And I'd like the wikibooks "Objectivist" to be asked to consider selecting a new name. I do not wish to force the issue; if I've not in the past accessed wikibooks as an editor, it may be that I won't need to in the future. In which case the Wikimedia Unification software somehow needs to handle exceptions like this one, where two people with the same username each have a kind of limited/unified account, with no overlaps between the two. Thank you! --Objectivist 06:16, 22 September 2010 (UTC)
As you have the global account Objectivist users are already prevented ("lockdown" in your speak) from creating accounts with the name "Objectivist" on other wikis. This was done automatically when the global account was created (back in Nov 2008), however the en.wikibooks account dates from before that happened. To obtain that account place a request over there (at b:en:Wikibooks:Requests for renaming). Best of luck, Rambo 13:16, 22 September 2010 (UTC)
Thank you. Objectivist 17:32, 22 September 2010 (UTC)
Marking as X mark.svg Not done, as there are local bureaucrats and Rambo has sufficiently answered the question for the user. Kylu 19:44, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

PrinceMathew

Status:    Not done

Username was usurped on en.wiki with his blessing but global account still exists. Will ask owner to post here to certify. –xeno 14:14, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

Kindly note that my user identity is not abandoned, it is just renamed to InarZan2. I don't care what you do with the old username, but I want the global account in the name InarZan2. Could you please rename my global account to "InarZan2"? PrinceMathew 14:54, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
We can't rename global accounts. Please rename all accounts where you have contributions under "PrinceMathew" to "InarZan2" as you want, visit special:mergeaccount as InarZan2 to create a new global account, then return here to request deletion of the old global account. Thank you. Kylu 15:54, 8 November 2010 (UTC)
