  • I confirm that Hrum-Hrum can use my old name Sunpriat Сунприат (talk) 19:55, 8 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]
    @Hrum-Hrum: According to our records, it looks like you've been renamed before. Please note that username changes take up valuable server resources and are not something to be treated lightly. Are you sure you want the name "Sunpriat"? —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 20:50, 8 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]
    • I want to merge the contribution of two accounts into one, but it's impossible. I tried it a new name, but still want to go back to the old way, with which I accustomed to working. --Hrum-Hrum (talk) 21:49, 8 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]
      @Hrum-Hrum: is that a "Yes" or a "No"? —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 02:19, 9 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Withdrawn Discovered account of same name -- will perform usurpation instead. Lucimundatene89 (talk) 22:50, 15 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]

@Lucimundatene89: Huh? Special:CentralAuth/JoshuaWashburn shows that there is no account titled "JoshuaWashburn", so a normal rename is possible; there is no need to usurp. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 01:58, 16 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]
@K6ka: Similar Names shows Joshuawashburn, is that a problem? Lucimundatene89 (talk) 02:04, 16 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]
@Lucimundatene89: Oh, the annoying "similar names" filter. :/
The username you're requesting, "JoshuaWashburn", has a capital W, compared to the registered "Joshuawashburn" which is lowercase. Normally, a username this similar would probably be enough to preclude a renaming (And thus you'd want to file a request to usurp "Joshuawashburn", not the camelcase version).
However, in this case, from what I can see "Joshuawashburn" hasn't made any edits since they were registered in 2006. It's pretty unlikely at this point that they will return, and even if they did you're more established on Wikimedia than they are. It is possible for us to rename you to "JoshuaWashburn" without problems. If they do return, then that's a discussion for another time, but for now, if you want "JoshuaWashburn" with a capital W, we can do that.
There is unfortunately no official policy on renaming users to similar names, and it's usually up to the discretion of the renamer reviewing the request. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 02:12, 16 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]
@K6ka: Alright, I am reinstating this request and will withdraw the usurpation request. Lucimundatene89 (talk) 02:51, 16 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Maestro 121@global

@Maestro 121: You have been renamed four times on Wikimedia in total. You have made way too many username changes. Please note that the username change process is not something to be taken lightly. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 00:17, 22 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Ok. I will respect it and see.--Maestro 121 (talk) 01:02, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
P.S. If there's a tool for banning a person to change the username? I hope this is my final username.--Maestro 121 (talk) 01:05, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
P.P.S. The signature already changed prior to the username.--Maestro 121 (talk) 01:10, 22 October 2016 (UTC) Request withdrawn self-withdrawn. Will use zh wiki to change the name. Thanks for your help.--Maestro 121 (talk) 04:51, 22 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Amin wordie@global

@Stephen G. Brown: You can ignore the AntiSpoof conflict so that you can complete the usurpation request. Since "AmIN" hasn't made any edits since it was registered over a month ago, it should be OK to finish it. (Also, a good question to ask is: "How did 'AmIN' register that name when it was supposedly too similar to 'Amin'?") —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 19:25, 1 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Thank, K6ka, it is going through now. I also wondered how AmIN registered his name. Thank you very much! Stephen G. Brown (talk) 19:33, 1 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]

I'm not sure what this means....—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Arokisky (talk)
An IP tried to change request your username to be changed. For security reasons, we normally decline those requests unless they can establish that the user has given permission to be renamed. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Cyberpower678 (talk) 01:33, 13 September 2016‎ (UTC)[reply]

I tried to change it earlier today in another sub, but they told me to place a request here instead. Is this what you're referring to? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Arokisky (talk) 04:44, 13 September 2016‎ (UTC)[reply]

@Arokisky: I am taking time out of my busy work schedule to send you this message. The reason why we initially declined your request on this page is because you filed it while you were logged out. All requests must be made while you are logged in. It is a security issue, not one of inconvenience. Since you filed it while you were logged out we could not tell if you were the one who actually filed it.
Secondly, you must notify the target user on their home wiki about the usurpation. The target user's home wiki, in this case, is Go to their talk page there and paste {{subst:Usurpation requested}} ~~~~ onto the page. After that we must wait one month before we can do the actual renaming.
