Comment Comment That's the third time the user change their name. First name change in september, second in October and that's November. ~ Nahid Talk 17:25, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
Sigh. Indeed - I overlooked it, Sorry. Special:GlobalRenameQueue is showing a waring but Special:GlobalRenameUser is not showing a warning. @Seth R: This is the last time we renamed your account. --Steinsplitter (talk) 17:28, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
@Steinsplitter: You need to use Special:GlobalRenameProgress to check to see if a user has been renamed in the past. Special:GlobalRenameUser doesn't check that. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 18:11, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Björlin@global[edit]

Yes check.svg Done. --Stryn (talk) 18:29, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. Is it possible to create the old account name again, so noone can create and use it anymore? I am not able to do that on my own. I don't want that anyone can be renamed to that old name. --Bjarlin (talk) 18:46, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
Why you can't create it again? What happens if you go to Special:LogIn and choose "Create another account"? --Stryn (talk) 18:49, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
It says, there is a user name "Bjorlin" which is very similar to the name, so it doesn't allow to create the old name. But that exists since 2013. Why could I create the name in 2014 then? That's not logical. And any user could create a rename request to the old name, that's not good. The software should allow to create the old name again to prevent this. --Bjarlin (talk) 18:57, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
@Bjarlin: If someone files a rename request to the old name, the reamer will see the same anti-spoof error. If you still think it is necessary to recreate the old account we can do so for you by recreating it with a random pw. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:10, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
That would be good. See also this discussion: That other user already wanted a rename in 2013 which had been rejected there. If he would be renamed here in the future, this wouldn't be rejected, and my old name would be available for everyone to registrate without that anti-spoof error message. It should be able to prevent those things after renames. Why is it not possible to create an old user name again after a rename, automatically or not? --Bjarlin (talk) 19:15, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
@Bjarlin: Done :). --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:22, 28 November 2015 (UTC)
Thank you, Steinsplitter. :-) --Bjarlin (talk) 19:29, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

Hitch Hicking Across Sahara@global[edit]

I want to request Usurpation or take over. I have already notified the user. Hitch Hicking Across Sahara (talk) 10:01, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
HIAS's editcount is zero. He is inactive since 17 April 2013 and carries just one local account on de.wikipedia.org . Hitch Hicking Across Sahara (talk) 10:01, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
Please notify the user about your request (even if he has never edited). --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:09, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
Per usurpation policy you don't have enough edits to request a usurp. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:13, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
See i am a regular editor with multiple good edits,Is there any other way ? Hitch Hicking Across Sahara (talk) 09:22, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
IMO, we can grant this request because the other user has no edits (after the due notification, assuming he/she won't object). — Yerpo Eh? 10:54, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
I have already notified the target user on his talk page (User talk:HIAS). Hitch Hicking Across Sahara (talk) 14:11, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
Ok, as far as I'm concerned, please ping us after one week. — Yerpo Eh? 14:57, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
@Yerpo: in general we wait for one month. --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:00, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
Oh, sorry, wasn't up to date with this guideline. — Yerpo Eh? 06:41, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
@Yerpo: @Steinsplitter: One weak is over, Can you do it now ? Hitch Hicking Across Sahara (talk) 04:20, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
Per standard procedure we wait ~one month. --Steinsplitter (talk) 05:39, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Cavarizo@global[edit]

It is not possible to merge local accounts. So, on Commons you should decide which account you want under the username Calypso10: current one with one edit or one currently named Cavarizo with four edits. Ruslik (talk) 18:21, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
I want to continue the Commons account named Cavarizo with four edits (one picture) under the name Calypso10. Loosing the Commons account Calypso10 with the one edit I don't mind (as long as this does not delete my WikiPedia account Calypso10). Calypso10 (talk) 22:32, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Ruslik, i found out few minutes ago , that this account was created in January 2007. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:ListUsers&limit=1&username=Marvel+Heroes . We are in November 2015. I guess, name usurp process, has a procedure of waiting for a month. In this particular case almost 9 years have passed since account creation with zero edit. Should we wait for one month?--Galaxy Kid (talk) 11:20, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
@Galaxy Kid: One month after the user has been notified about a usurp request. Therefore yes, you have to wait. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:43, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
