~MMGJ~@global

When I came across your request in the rename queue, I encountered some evidence, which I think warrants a discussion, which is why I asked you re-request here. Unfortunately I can't remember what that evidence was, but I think it was concerning your possession of multiple accounts. Give me a bit to try and remember. If I can't remember, I will just move forward with your request.—cyberpower ChatHello! 09:55, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
Here we go. I encountered this, which apparently is your previous account. That account is checkuser blocked for sockpuppeting. My concern is that you have this new account, to evade scrutiny, except that another block on another wiki ties your old account to this account. Can you please explain?—cyberpower ChatHello! 10:04, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
Can you also explain why your first edit to Meta was a (rather unhelpful) clerk comment on this page? (Along with this. And this. And this. And this. And this.) —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 13:10, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications

SMcCandlish@global – LDAP error, no Phabricator access

  • Clerk note: Hello! User:SMcCandlish, this is a page for rename requests.--~MMGJ~ (talk) 11:24, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
    • Hopefully you or someone else knows where to point me. I've made half a dozen requests across WMF sites to get this resolved over the last 18 months or so, all to no avail. Grasping at whatever I can at this point. I figure any conglomeration of stewards able to fix user names are likely also able to fix problems with username/pw recognition by the system, or at least know where to go to resolve that kind of issue. I should clarify here that I cannot file a standard bug report about this, because that has to be done at Phabricator, which I cannot log into.  — SMcCandlish ¢ ≽ʌⱷ҅ʌ≼  11:28, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
Interesting, we have someone clerking the username requests page after signing up for an account only three days ago. Not to mention their message wasn't that helpful.
@SMcCandlish: There isn't anything we can do here because this page is for SUL-related username changes, and Phabricator, AFAIK, is something different. I see that you've already asked at mw:Talk:Phabricator/Help; that page is unfortunately your best bet. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 12:24, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
I should point out that the LDAP error, is likely a problem over at Wikitech, IIRC. Did you try to login with the OAuth option?—cyberpower ChatHello! 16:03, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done There is nothing we can do. You can try to contact AKlapper (WMF) if you are unable to login on phabricator. --Steinsplitter (talk) 05:52, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

MGromov@global

Unfortunately deleting account is not possible, maybe we can usurp it? — regards, Revi 18:33, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
The Horadrim does exist, and it does have edits; 58 global edits as of this writing. That does matter, and it may prohibit us from usurping it (It will definitely prohibit us from deleting it, if it was possible to delete accounts). —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 19:34, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
OK, does that mean that perhaps the only way to accomplish this is for you to change the name on the MGromov account to a slightly different version of Horadrim?      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 14:46, 25 June 2016 (UTC)
The answer to that is also no. The target account has been recently active, as such the requesting account will be too similar if renamed to a similar name. The only way to proceed is if the requesting user can establish ownership of the target account. If the target can login to that account and post here confirming ownership, the usurp can proceed. We cannot really merge accounts. The existing tools are unreliable, and the new merge tool's development has been suspended.—cyberpower ChatHello! 15:59, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
Hi! Thanks for cleaning up our mess, and I apologize for the confusion. I am here writing to establish that I am the owner of the currently blocked user account MGromov, which was initially described as a collective user, and consequently the owner of all files that this user has uploaded on the Commons. I have created the MGromov user to control my workflow and achievements as a Wikipedian-in-residence at the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Center for Neuromathematics (NeuroMat). The document that demonstrates my current activity at NeuroMat is available on the Commons, and I may direct you to this document if you think this is useful. My main concern here is that, because of an initial confusion, all files that were uploaded as MGromov are deleted. As I understand, this can be avoided, which is great info. Another concern refers to making clear that these contributions of mine were not done as an "individual volunteer" but as part of an official position as a Wikipedian-in-residence, which has actually been discussed with members of the WMF, such as Ijon. This concern has led me to obviously disclaiming my official affiliation when I created the user MGromov (i.e., stating that this user would not take part of votes and other decision-making procedures). I am sorry for not knowing in advance the peculiarities of the Commons user-name policy. I am not fully aware of the usurping process: would this only affect my account on the Commons? What will happen to all contributions I have done as MGromov, or even the user page? If you look at my user page on pt.wikipedia, you will see that I use it as a means of controlling my activity, so it is important that I do not lose all this info (MGromov on pt.wikipedia). Joalpe, who leads my team at NeuroMat, and myself will check this page to understand what we ought to do. Thanks! Horadrim (talk) 18:33, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for confirming. The usurping process is as follows. First the old account Horadrim, and all of it's pages on every wiki, will be renamed to a different name. The your MGromov, and all of it's user pages on every wiki, will be renamed to Horadrim. Passwords on both accounts will be preserved respectively. Do you wish to proceed?—cyberpower ChatHello! 20:10, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

Munjabot1@global

Though the connection might be fairly obvious, I can't find any definitive connection to your main account. That's a small issue most likely. What strikes me as a bigger concern is that your old bot account was blocked for abuse and had it's bot flag revoked. I'd like to hear some background about that first.—cyberpower ChatHello! 16:18, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
I'm even more alarmed about the ridiculous amount of Munja accounts there are and how different ones are blocked on different wikis for different, one of them being abusing multiple accounts. I'd preferably like to hear more about those too.—cyberpower ChatHello! 16:22, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I was making disruption 2 years ago (by not knowing rules that having multiple account is forbidden), but I got unblocked via Standard Offer on EN Wiki and locked all other accounts. This is connection between my old account and bot. If ever merging edits will be available, I will merge all my edits in this single account. I will resolve block status for Munjabot on BS Wiki because that's where I edit mostly. --Munja (talk) 16:57, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
Okay. I can accept that. However, can you please resolve the block first. Since that is your primary wiki and your old bot has 18,000 edits, it's not unreasonable to ask for the bot to be unblocked there first before proceeding with the usurp.—cyberpower ChatHello! 17:01, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
