@An arabiantruth: You requested at talk page, but now I have moved the request to correct page, so it's just an confirmation that you still wanted to be re-named? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 16:09, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
Not done No response. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 05:27, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
Reason: i've been trying to change my username here for a while, and it doent allow me.i am participating in a group that records everything in wikiversity and my username there is Mip.i created the page"User:Mip", but of course it is deleted because my username here isnt Mip(and ive seen that there isnt an account of that name(mip).plus, the tool that checks if the usename is valid did both "username taken" and "username valid" sections(please fix it)
Not done@Valeryago123:Mip is already taken and have valid contributions on enwiki. If you still want to be renamed, please choose another username and request again. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 05:12, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
Reason: I was blocked permanently from Wikipedia four years ago when I was just getting started, with having an unsuitable username - which promotes the name of my business, being one of the reasons. In order to set myself free (which I unsuccessfully did earlier today; at the expense of my talk page; I also used the ticket system to pretty much no avail), this is one of the things pledged to do to restore my honor and have my block lifted. Thank you very much. --FamilySing01 (talk) 18:04, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
Not done@FamilySing01: Please follow instructions on your English wiki talk page. Once you address the issue regarding your block they can rename you there. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:15, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
Ok, here’s the main reason I was blocked in a nutshell. Three years ago, just when I was getting started, I just rushed into things by creating a page regarding a business that I own, which appeared to deal with a topic in which I have a conflict of interest. Then I created another page, a book I’ve written, and both pages violated Wikipedian policy, and I got blocked indefinitely. When I tried to appeal my block recently, I tried to apologise, I tried to write it it as clear as possible, I tried to point out my mistakes, I repeatedly told them that I would not edit within the area of my interest conflict, I pleaded they unblock me on my life, but nobody took me seriously, and now I lost access to my talk page because of my “silly claims” when trying to atone for my flaws, denying that I have a conflict of interest, and being reluctant to address different subject areas I could edit within.--FamilySing01 (talk) 05:42, 25 June 2019 (UTC)
Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications
Reason: I created this account 7 years ago when I'd got my interest in publishing and translating Wikipedia from English to Thai, but had abandoned it since I got too much work irl and lost my interest in contributing to Wikipedia. Now I've got my interest back and decided to return. The only thing is that I accidentally created new account with my preferred name last year unknowing that my old account was still available. I just want to transfer/merge my old account and its contribution history to the new one (Exquirentius). Anyway, thank you for your assist in advance.
Reason: RU: Всегда пользовался именем из 5 букв (VladX), но в Википедии он был занят учётной записью Vladx с 1 правкой. EN (translation): Always used a 5-letter name (VladX), but on Wikipedia he was busy with an account Vladx with 1 edit. --VladXe (talk) 10:36, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
VladX have 15 edits at ru.wiki. Accounts with valid edits can not be usurped. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 15:51, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
@Stanglavine: Comparing with user requesting, I think 15 edits isn't big deal, also target last edited in 2006, so there's very little chance they'll be back. So requesting you to re-evaluate the request. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 16:27, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
@1997kB: Certainly VladXe has a lot more edits, but there was already a user who, before him, opted to have the credit of his participation in the projects assigned to the "VladX" username. This right is his, considering our content license, to be credited with this username, unless he states otherwise (when a rename request, for example). This is the foundation, I think, for not usurp accounts with valid edits, no matter how many. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 16:57, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
@Stanglavine: Well it's up-to you to accept or reject this request as you are handling it, but I have seen request got accepted in such conditions and that's why I commented. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:12, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
Not done Per standard procedure, we don't usurp accounts with valid edits. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 16:15, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
Reason: I use similar username on other media. Most of my Wikipedia contributions are about motorcycles and motorcycle films, I am keen interested in them. The requested nickname comes from a famous motorcycle film, so I would be very pleased if I could use it for my further activities. Please see my list of contributions on my home CZECH Wikipedia site, before you make a decision. The requested account has no edits at all, and seems to be completely inactive. Please think what is better: to let this nice nickname lie waste, or give a chance to one who would actively use it, for a topic the nickname is related with.
Reason: I would like to use my real name. That account only exists in the Spanish Wikipedia, has been abandoned for 5 years and has no edits. I have a verified email on Wikipedia and a blog with that name.
Not doneWnome: Your account isn't established enough for usurpation request, please choose a username which isn't already registered. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:27, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, how long would I have to wait? I do not mind having to wait, I'll do the edits with this one. The old account was probably created by me many years ago but I lost the password. --Wnome (talk) 16:44, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
Wnome: If you can access that account and confirm, we can do this rename now. Otherwise please wait for atleast 5-6 months. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 17:00, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
Reason: Hi, I am very sorry to post here for this target, maybe a bit funny. I am really a fan of チルノ, one of characters of ACGN subculture. She is so cute that I want to replace my user name to her name. Since this account has been registered before, I request for a user name usurp.
@New visitor: (Note I'm not a steward or global renamer) Accounts on Wikimedia wikis use global accounts, which means the same username is reserved across all Wikimedia wikis. This is why usurption has to occur here; it's a global process, so it doesn't just apply to one wiki. In this case, it appears the target user has 2 edits, but they've since been deleted, so you should be able to get the account after the required one month notification period.

@Retro:Oh, thanks. It's my bad English reading skill. I mistook it for account merge case.--New visitor (talk) 12:20, 21 May 2019 (UTC)
On hold until 21 June. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 06:10, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
Reason: When I first joined Wikipedia, it did not appear that Orville as a username was available, so I added a string of numbers afterward. In searching English Wikipedia, I could not just the username Orville, either. The name does come up under pt.wikipedia.com with only 5 edits done over 4 years ago, and no action since. I would like to change my username to Orville without the string of characters if it is permissable. Thank you. --Orville1974 (talk) 17:37, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
