I really want to change my username, but request was rejected. How can change my name? GALAXYA8 (talk) 09:46, 31 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]
The only way to change is that if you didn't create sock-puppet(Will be unblocked last month), or getting unblocked. Please do not abuse sockpuppets. Jerrykim306 (talk) 11:50, 1 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Didn't Savh deny a user named GALAXY08 because he was blocked on his main project?

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications

BU Rob13

  • Confirm, though I'd prefer to be renamed to Rob13 without the space if a renamer feels that's usurpable. ~ Rob13Talk 00:09, 16 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]
    I'd recommend asking on w:WP:CHUU. There are still some crats (who are also renamers) that feel local policy still applies for global accounts with just an enwiki account, so the local policies might be more permissive there. Normally I frown on such silly assertions, but it may help you in this case. – Ajraddatz (talk) 00:33, 16 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]
    Did you mean w:WP:CHUU? The target account's (deleted?) edits were to eswiki, not enwiki. For what it's worth, I can confirm as a bureaucrat that the request would meet the local usurpation policy on enwiki, but I think it's eswiki that has jurisdiction if local consent is needed. We really need to get the global usurpation policy sorted... WJBscribe (talk) 12:09, 27 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]
    Heh, quite right. – Ajraddatz (talk) 03:50, 5 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Time2wait.svg On hold until 16 April--Alaa :)..! 21:54, 24 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]
I'm withdrawing this request. At this point, there are simply too many references to my current username in various places to justify changing it. The final straw was when I realized my username was tied up in Wikimania submissions, etc. It would be very confusing to change it halfway through the submission process. ~ Rob13Talk 02:06, 5 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

No. I want to keep Shwetha intact. I will forget about Chulodara and his contributions. ---- Shwetha (talk) 19:25, 10 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

X mark.svg Not done as merging the accounts is not possible. Stryn (talk) 14:03, 17 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]


...but you haven't contributed either. For usurpation requests, a notification is however required. Savhñ 00:26, 15 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]
...I have now. This account was only opened a couple of days ago. When you say 'a notification is required', do you mean I have to do something more? I have now been shown how to sign this: Pagat1703 (talk) 12:49, 17 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]
@Pagat1703: Notifying the user involves going to their home wiki talk page and then leaving them a message notifying them about this request, preferably in their language. You may use Template:Usurpation requested/nl, in this case. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 20:19, 17 March 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Tren Ligero GDL

The username you have requested, Tren Ligero GDL, does not exist. Therefore, it is not available for usurpation. Maybe you would like to rename your account to Tren Ligero 001 using Special:GlobalRenameRequest or requesting a username change above? Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 01:12, 21 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Actually, I retract my statement above. This user is blocked on two wikis: es.wikipedia and commons. I don't believe this user can rename his account or get a usurpation. Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 10:59, 21 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]
X mark.svg Not done you are blocked in definitely in 2 wikis, one of them is your home wiki! so you are not able to change your name! --Alaa :)..! 11:04, 21 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Paul Kuiper

X mark.svg Not done @Paul K.: sorry for late in response, but I needed many time to understand what do you want in you request, so initially as what we wrote in the box above (below the section header) that (Global User Account Merges are not possible, and will not be in a near or mid-term future), so we can't merge your accounts, then I think you ask to change the "Paul Kuiper" name in (it., fr. & af. wikis) to "Paul K." and this thing is not possible also, because the accounts now is working globally; I mean for example if you look to Paul K. page in Italian Wikipedia you will see that this name is exist there also! Your (Paul K. account) is global now so it's used and exist in all Wikipedias for you. I wish you can understand me. Thasnks --Alaa :)..! 18:03, 24 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @Alaa. Please take a look at w:Special:Contributions/Fastilysock. You can see that talk page edits I have made with (example) Fastilysock are signed with links to my user page and talk page. Also, I have restored w:User:Fastilysock, please take a moment to review that page's history as well. I think this is sufficient evidence proving that the account is mine.
