There is a short discussion at w:no:Wikipedia:Torget#Ugreit brukernavn? No real problem, except the user has a user name that coincides with a well-known Norwegian pop artist (w:Hariton Pushwagner) that is now deceased. — Jeblad 21:32, 3 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

  • Comment Comment.You are now CU blocked on English Wikipedia and also have a previous rename declined recently. I don't think you can be renamed. --Cohaf (talk) 14:48, 8 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
X mark.svg Not done Sounds like you're trying to circumvent a block by getting a username change. There are two problems with that: 1) it doesn't work; blocks are applied to accounts and not usernames, so you'd still be blocked if you got renamed; and 2) we are obviously not going to help you evade a local block. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 19:32, 8 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@TN003232: You were just renamed today. Why are you requesting another rename so soon? Also, please be sure to sign your posts with your current name, not the one that you wish to use. Nihlus 02:59, 9 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Comment Comment: @TN003232:, Your current user-name (TN003232) is not a "Real name", so there is no reason for changing it. Thanks. --Dr-Taher (talk) 01:34, 12 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

I plan on declining this, Stanglavine. @Ehime: You were just renamed three months ago, which also happened to be a usurpation. Why are you making another request so soon? Nihlus 09:58, 1 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
(Edit conflict.) I am also agree with Nihlus. Additionally could you please elaborate more on your reason for renaming that how your current username isn't friendly? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 10:05, 1 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Hi, my reason is simply above. I’m sorry to bother you stewards and renamers. It’s my last request, I shall not to ask for a usurpation again. —Ehime (talk) 10:23, 1 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
X mark.svg Not done Renames and usurpations are not to be taken lightly. Request this in three months and it might be approved then as your final rename. Nihlus 07:38, 3 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]


That username is not eligible for usurpation, is already taken by other user and has many (+20000!) edits, and the edits of User:M in dawiki are valid, so, I think you should choose another name. --Stïnger (会話) 01:45, 4 February 2019 (UTC).[reply]

Giovanny Garciliano

@Giovanni Alfredo Garciliano Diaz: Pursuant to es:Wikipedia:Política de bots, I think the best course of action would be do include the word "bot" in your bot's name. This was suggested at the only failed authorization it has at es:Wikipedia:Bot/Autorizaciones/Archivo/2018#Giovanny_Garciliano. Nihlus 02:56, 9 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Nihlus, it's recommended, but not mandatory. In eswiki there are a few bots that doesn't have the string "bot" in their usernames: es:User:Otitis, es:User:Grillitus or es:User:Elvisor. --Giovanni Alfredo Garciliano Diaz (talk) 03:21, 9 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Cookie: It appears that you are the owner of the Anna account. Would you object to its usurpation by this user? Nihlus 03:31, 9 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Well, yes, it might be conflictive because my real name is Anna and my signature is Anna (Cookie) in all of the projects, apart from here. Anna (talk) 04:33, 9 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
X mark.svg Not done @Giovanni Alfredo Garciliano Diaz: Since the account owner objects the usurpation, please choose another username and file a new request. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:38, 9 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@Aleding: Veritas isn't eligible for usurpation, please choose another one. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:14, 10 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@1997kB: I decided on a different name that is not currently being used so I went ahead and submitted a simple name change request. So I guess we can can close this request. Apologies for my misunderstanding of the usurpation requirements. Thanks. Aleding (talk) 00:12, 13 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

For the reason of unable of the merge of accounts as for now, and reasonable advice of the fellow admins and editors in KOWP, I request of this double name change, and withdraw the pending user merge request. - Ellif (talk) 03:58, 14 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@Galadrien: Could you please sign below my comment using accounts Ellif and LeaveouttherPwjd_e11. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:59, 14 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
I certify the ownership of the account of Ellif also. / However, If I have at least of one more edit on LeaveouttherPwjd_e11, Is it the unable to move account there? - Ellif (talk) 09:28, 16 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
and if I get it correct, you are requesting rename Galadrien to Ellif ultimately? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:02, 14 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@Shobhasv and SV Shobha: Hey could you please tell that which username you plan to use after the merge? I think a simple rename could solve your problem if I am getting it right. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 17:36, 9 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@1997kB: Thank you. I'd like to retain the Shobhasv account. --Shobhasv 13:12, 10 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
@Shobhasv: Ok, So since merging account is not possibility neither globally nor locally. We only can swap edits between accounts locally, but thats not gonna help in your case as you have most of edits on Shobhasv account. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:21, 10 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done + (user:RM21~commonswiki changed to user:RM21~). @RM21: please enter from both accounts to this page. Confirm if it work with you please --Alaa :)..! 13:07, 22 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

@علاء: I don't think this was done right. As I was understanding it, he was wanting RM21 → RM21~ and then RM21~commonswiki → RM21. Additionally, they both now show that they are not attached to their respective accounts. That might be related to T215107 though. Nihlus 13:15, 22 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Hello @Nihlus: as I see that the user want:
  • RM21~commonswiki edits on commons only to RM21
  • RM21 edits on commons only to RM21~commonswiki
  • then RM21~commonswiki to RM21~
and ofc it'll not be attached until the user enter commons through both accounts or enter Special:MergeAccount. @1997kB: Can you confirm my understanding? --Alaa :)..! 13:18, 22 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah I think all they want is the old edits from that ~commonswiki account, which will be completed once the go to that merge page. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:37, 22 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
I was unaware that we were still doing any sort of local merges or swaps. At this point though, I am not sure which edits began where since c:Special:Log/علاء is a tad confusing. I'll just wait for confirmation from the user to make sure it worked. Nihlus 13:29, 22 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
That’s worked great, thanks. (RM21 (talk) 16:53, 22 February 2019 (UTC))[reply]
@RM21: Could you please do the same with RM21~ account also as it still shows unattached. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 18:58, 22 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Done. That should be showing now. Thanks. (RM21~ (talk) 19:38, 22 February 2019 (UTC))[reply]
