Requests[edit]

Urbanuntil (problem with unifying accounts)[edit]

Status:    Not done

I want to unite my account but he cannot in the following wikis: ( en and it ). I want to obtain those accounts. Urbanuntil 109.203.165.68 01:22, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done En.wikipedia and it.wikipedia have local bureaucrats, so you'll have to make the request locally (here for en.wikipedia, here for it.wikipedia). Jafeluv 01:36, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Ramir[edit]

Status:    Not done

Greetings to appointed Stewards of the Wikimedia Foundation. UNDER TWO IMPORTANT CONDITIONS would I like to unify my account:

  1. THAT UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL IT BE PERMITTED THAT MY LOGIN DETAILS, OR ANY PRIVATE DATA HOWEVER AVAILABLE THROUGH MY USE OF WIKIMEDIA WEBSITES, BE MADE ACCESSIBLE, IN ANY DIRECT OR INDIRECT WAY, TO ANYONE AFFILIATED WITH ANYONE INVOLVED, IN THE PAST, OR EVER, IN RUSSIAN WIKIPEDIA.
  2. That my ‘main’ user-login is that at the English Wikipedia, not, as it shews presently, the Russian Wikipedia.

To the best of my memory I have not ever held possession of user-account "Ramir" at ar.wikipedia.org. I have failed to remember, or to confirm otherwise, my connection with "Ramir" accounts on the following: en.wiktionary.org, es.wikipedia.org, fi.wikipedia.org, pt.wikipedia.org
Thanks if you would help me. Ramir 04:48, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

All these wikis have local bureaucrats. Please, ask them locally. Ruslik 07:14, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
Hello Ramir. As you can see here, your account is already unified. Whether an account is unified or not does not affect the handling of your private data in any way as far as I know. For information about how your private data is handled, you may want to read the Wikimedia Foundation's privacy policy.
Your home wiki is decided automatically by the software when you first unify your account. Ru.wikipedia was the project where you had the most edits at the time (and still do), so it was decided as your home wiki. The only way to change that would be to wait until you have more edits on en.wikipedia than ru.wikipedia and then unify your account again. Jafeluv 07:17, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
What of the “Check User” business then? There are known cases of privacy-theft on ru.wikipedia (sorry, no English-language links), — I just want them not to have further access, like, to my use of commons.wikimedia.org, mostly. Complicated stuff. Ramir 22:32, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
