SUL finalization[edit]

If you are requesting a merge of a global account with one or more unconnected local accounts as part of finalizing your single unified login (SUL) username, please specify which wikis and accounts you want to merge into your global account. These accounts were typically be named "account name~wikiname". Please note that we can only merge a local account into a global account when the global account has no edits on the same wiki as the local account.

How to add an entry here[edit]

To add an entry, please copy and paste the text below into the appropriate section.

=== Oldname ===
|status = <!--don't change this line-->
|domain = global
|Oldname =
|Newname =
|reason = (your remarks here)


For global rename requests:

=== Example ===
|status     = <!--don't change this line-->
|domain     = global
|Oldname    = Example
|Newname    = Foo
|reason     = your remarks here

Making a request for your own account[edit]

For changing your username on one wiki:

Please include the following information in your request:

  • the old username,
  • the new username,
  • please sign ~~~~ request with your account for a simple move (first section), or sign this request with both the originating and the target accounts if you are requesting a merge (second section).

If anything is missing from your request, a steward will request more information. This helps ensure that you are requesting a rename for your own account. Please check before posting your request that the username you want is available. You can test that by going to the (new) user page and looking into the sidebar. If there is a link to user contributions, the account already exists, or check via Special:CentralAuth.

Private requests[edit]

Requests that need to be made in private should be sent using this direct wiki-email interface while logged-in.

Simple rename requests[edit]

If your rename request is simple and does not involve usurpation of an existing account or other SUL issues, you have two options:

  1. Use the request form at Special:GlobalRenameRequest; or
  2. Submit the request below in this section.

Please use this tool to check if the username is taken before filing a request.

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications[edit]

Please add new requests at the end of the section. Sections should be titled your username and requests should be signed by the requesting user.
Please note: Per standard procedure, accounts with valid edits are not usurped, and the target account must be notified by renamer at least one month before usurpation.

@Tazesinial: Türkçe Vikipedi'deki sayfanın silinme nedeni kullanıcı adınız değil, girişiminizin bu sayfadaki kriterleri karşılamamasıydı. Yani kullanıcı adınız değişse bile ilettiğim sayfadaki kriterler sağlanmadığı sürece (ki gördüğüm kadarıyla sağlanmıyor) oluşturduğunuz sayfa kabul edilmeyecek ve silinmeye devam edecek. Türkçe Vikipedi'de engellenme sebebiniz ise tamamen oluşturduğunuz sayfadan bağımsız olarak kullanıcı adlarında ticari markaya izin vermememiz, yani kısaca özetlemem gerekirse kullanıcı adınızı değiştirseniz bile bu sayfadaki kriterler karşılanmadığı sürece sayfanız Vikipedi üzerinde yer almayacak diyebilirim. İyi çalışmalar.--evrifaessa ❯❯❯ talk 09:01, 21 September 2020 (UTC)
@Uncitoyen: Since it's related to trwiki. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:00, 22 September 2020 (UTC)
@Tazesinial: Your username has been blocked because it contains a company name. It is sensed from your messages (on trwiki) that you will also make attempts to reopen the page. Even if i change your username, your block will need to be unblocked. After if you open this page again it can be blocked you because you spamming. The reason of your request isn't completely correct and changing your username (based on some of your messages for now), it may cause some problems in the future. You will need to send a message for unblocking to admin who blocked you. Unblocking and then blocking again will tire both you and the admins. I remind you these by your home wiki rules. If you pay attention to these rules, I can change your username. You would better reconfirm this request if you want your name to be changed and if you approve these. --Uncitoyentalk 15:03, 22 September 2020 (UTC)
@Tazesinial: If you don't attempt to open your company's page again, I can rename your account. If you want to contribute to Wikipedia, you can also create a new account. You also save time. Please comments so that I can process this request. --Uncitoyentalk 16:43, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
