I've usurped the account in the wikis which have no active bureaucrats. In other wikis, you need to ask for usurpation locally in the project. You can find a list of pages where to do that here. Wikimania2008 is a locked project (nobody can edit it). The ten.wikipedia account is already merged to your global account. Jafeluv 22:02, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
Thanks Dear Jafeluv. But these wikis has been not any local bureaucrat to here. for example fr@wikisurce & please move my contributions in ten.wikipedia to Mehdi. --MehdiTalk 22:09, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
If the wiki doesn't have a separate renaming page, you can ask a bureaucrat on their talk page. In your list above, the "crats" link shows you a list of the project's bureaucrats. (You can see which bureaucrats are active by following the "stewardry" link.) Jafeluv 22:15, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
Thanks a lot dear Jafeluv. you're very kind, @};- sincerely:--MehdiTalk 22:22, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
For wikimania2008 it is not possible to do anything because this project is locked. Sorry, for not explaining what I meant at the beginning. Ruslik 07:15, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
@Ruslik:No problem. Thanks --MehdiTalk 06:49, 4 September 2011 (UTC)

I would like to merge Crio with "Crio de la Paz" in and in They are all mine. Both "Ciro de la Paz" accounts have been merged but Crio can't. If it is possible I would like all to be named "Crio de La Paz". -- 00:23, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Since I tried to "globalize" both accounts (Crio in the and Ciro de la Paz in es. and fr.) now I have two global accounts: "Crio de la Paz" and "Crio". I guess I would like to merge this (if not possible I would discard the "Crio" account and continue with "Crio de la Paz" as only account). --Crio de la paz 00:29, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Hello. Stewards can't rename users on projects where there is at least one active bureaucrat. You should request the renaming here for eswiki and here for frwiki. Moreover, accounts can't be merged, they can at least be renamed. What I would advise you is to keep only the oldest accounts and to merge them into a unique global account. If you need some more help with those renamings, feel free to send me a message on my user talk page. Cordially, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 15:58, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

I'd like to ask you to move this zero-edit account out of the way in order to complete the SUL of my account. This had already been requested locally. Despite my attempts to get the attention of the bureaucrats, 9 days have passes and still no reaction from them. If you aren't allowed to perform this request, I'd appreciate if you at least try to get a response from them. This subject is being dragged for months. I don't know if I'll retain my current username yet. I hope I will, as a rename is currently a long and complicated proccess. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hello. There is at least one active bureaucrat on this project. You should request it locally here. Cordially, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 15:50, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

I want to be renamed to iantresman with the following accounts // I want to usurp the following accounts

I already have a global log-in for my username "iantresman" on English Wikipedia, Commons, Simple English, Quotes, and others, but have forgotten my password for meta wiki, so I can't log-in, and can't unify my accounts. Anything I can do? Other accounts:

--Iantresman 13:27, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Hello. I don't really understand : you say that you can't access to the account "Iantresman" on meta, and you just used it to post this request [1]. Therefore, your account is attached to your SUL, so normally you should be able to use it. Aren't you speaking about instead ? -- Quentinv57 (talk) 18:49, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
You're quite correct, there's so many Wikis, I've confused myself. Yes, I can't unify my account. I have lost the password, and foolishly did not add an email. I don't think I made any posts, so if the password can't be retrieved, can the account be deleted so I can start again?
Okay, all right. So as is a project with local 'crats, stewards can't rename you. I would advise you to edit the page mw:Project:Requests#Requests_for_renames to request the renaming locally. Cordially, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 20:09, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the advice. --Iantresman 20:30, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

I want to be renamed to Hex with the following accounts:

I was advised to ask here by en.wp bureaucrat Xeno as this requires an SUL change. For an explanation, please read my original request for usurpation. Thank you. Earle Martin 22:13, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

The global name "Hex" is currently in use by a Chinese Wikipedia user who has 112 edits. They therefore have priority over the name, so unfortunately we can't delete the SUL account for you. Sorry about that. PeterSymonds (talk) 22:18, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
I was aware of that, thanks. Did you read my comments on the original page about that? Earle Martin 08:45, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
