X mark.svg Not done there's another new request (11:06, 6 April 2018) on usurpation section --Alaa :)..! 04:41, 7 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]


Note: I also asked this on the Wikimedia Forum. Ups and Downs () 18:34, 27 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
  • @UpsandDowns1234: I think you should ask to be unblock on, because the most of your edits are there! Also, this request can refused based on Global rename policy that request can be refused if the user is seeking the rename to conceal or obfuscate bad conduct. --Alaa :)..! 12:13, 9 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@علاء: good point. Maybe we should put this request on hold until I get unblocked from the English Wikipedia (not happening anytime soon). I am not trying to hide bad conduct, but what I do remember is a user told me that they do not want an unblock request from someone who they do not remember blocking, as it would cause confusion. Agree? Ups and Downs () 17:58, 9 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@UpsandDowns1234: It'll be hard to put this request on hold for a long time. So we can close it now, and after you unblocked either re-apply a new request or send a reminder on my talk page and I'll open it again. Agree? --Alaa :)..! 14:01, 10 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@علاء: Good point. Closing. Ups and Downs () 17:34, 10 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for your help. T Cells (talk) 14:22, 23 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@T Cells: I think it is better is you create a new account under name (Wikicology) and redicert it to your new name --Alaa :)..! 14:37, 23 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
User:Wikicology automatically redirect to User:T Cells. I don't think creating a new account is necessary. Regards. T Cells (talk) 15:22, 23 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Making new account for old name is always good choice since that old name is open for creation and abuse. Seen lots of such case for established users. — regards, Revi 15:33, 23 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Question Question: @علاء: and @-revi:, my signature on Wikimedia Commons still show my old name "Wikicology". What's going on? Please, help. See this for example. T Cells (talk) 09:17, 24 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@T Cells: Have you changed your old signature in Commons preferences? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 09:24, 24 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Do you read request and proof of request ? 16:29, 29 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Yes of course. If it is "to disappear" please read this page. We can't accept IP requests --Alaa :)..! 16:32, 29 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Your system has FAILED to perform the request action when logged in. 9 days later no action is taken while it was legit and "complete" in terms of action at that time. Now if you refuse, you must provide me a mail adress of customer service to specifically request it outside your tool that is not able to work properly and your 'rules" that doesn't fit to erroneous behaviour. Proof of request has been provided. If you fail to read french to verify proof, please ask one of your french speaking colleague ! Additionally a CheckUser can confirm my identity ...

@علاء: As my Userpage mentioned it, I was in Myanmar with almost no internet access so I was unable to see this request. In my opinion, the diff from the french Wikipedia (made by Loreleil's account) is enough as "proof" to perform the requested rename. Regards, Linedwell [talk] 03:45, 5 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

X mark.svg Not done you should have at least 400 edits to ask for usurpation --Alaa :)..! 18:54, 15 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]


Yes check.svg Done The progress --Alaa :)..! 14:33, 21 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]


@PhilEdits: can you explain your request in simple way? and what is the relation of @Jon Kolbert:? And if it for usurpation you should have at least 400 edits, but I see less than 100 edits --Alaa :)..! 14:27, 21 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

It appears that in the time PhilEdits was waiting for an account (an accountcreator was needed to create Mrphilip because there was a similarly-named existing account) they decided to create "PhilEdits" for use in the meantime. If the user can log in to both accounts and confirm they are the owner of both, I think it would be safe to rename and transfer the edits from the old account to the new name. Jon Kolbert (talk) 18:56, 24 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
A special request to reclaim a dormant user name "Mrphilip" which had been used but one time was made by me, owner of an msn account of the same name for over 15 years. My request was approved. How Do I change my current user name to the requested name offered to me by the person mentioned. PhilEdits (talk) 08:05, 25 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
@PhilEdits: do you have an access to Mrphilip account? if yes, please sign by it under my comment --Alaa :)..! 09:54, 25 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Yes I can sign in with this account. Can we merge PhilEdits here or just start fresh? Mrphilip (talk) 20:51, 25 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
I can also logout and log back in with the account I created during the 5 weeks I waited for approval on the requested 'Mrphilip'. PhilEdits (talk) 21:11, 25 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]
At this point I think I should ask all interested parties, if they have a preference for one user name over another. My desire was simply for continuity of historic usage, but I'm comfortable with both choices. Feedback Appreciated. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by PhilEdits (talk)

Request looks good but we are having technical difficulties with renaming users, so we must wait for the problem to be fixed. — regards, Revi 14:20, 28 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

@Wong128hk: so?--Весельчак7 (talk) 08:47, 27 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
This is the standard procedure for account usurpation. The process can only be proceeded when a month notification was issued and received no objection. So that, please wait for it. --J.Wong 09:23, 27 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]
