Reason: I just start to working with The center for society & internet (CIS). I have updated some lists on Meta. I created my half account, Nitesh (CIS), by mistake. I want to correct my User name as Nitesh (CIS-A2K). Nitesh (CIS) (talk) 12:50, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
Done. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 15:27, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
@Rapsar: Already exist an account called Xolotl. Please, choose other username. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 21:48, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
@Stanglavine:, when I used the tool above, I couldn't see :/ That one isn't active for 8 years, isn't it possible to have that name? At least in other projects but the German Wikipedia?--Rapsar (talk) 21:51, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
@Rapsar: No, because accounts with valid edits, in any sites or any time, can not be usurped (standard procedure). I suggest that you choose other username. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 22:03, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
@Stanglavine:, I want Nanahuatl, it looks like it is possible. Should I make another request or like this it's OK?--Rapsar (talk) 06:36, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
Reason: Hi, I want to change my username because I want to continue anonymously. The new username I have chosen has never been taken. Please change in Turkish Wikipedia and French Wikipedia. Thank u! --Can Azizali (talk) 09:12, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Reason: Current name has lost its relevance. In order to keep the history of article creation, it is very important to change the name to a new version. Stas-Adolf (talk) 12:00, 30 September 2019 (UTC)
Reason: I would like to usurp this username because the user who has this username haven't made a single edit on any Wikipedia language. The account is not connected to SUL and is a user on the English Wikipedia and have not made any edits there. Iantriks (talk) 08:05, 3 August 2019 (UTC)
Reason: As you can see, my oldname is a classic meaningless user name. It's hard to explain what does this mean, and it's actually concerned in a matter of privacy as well. I'd like to change it into Recollections. Because this is the neckname I've been using nowadays.
Thanks for moving my request. Then I realize I just misunderstood the meaning that Global User Account Merges are not possible, so I considered I cannot usurp the name Recollections globally. Now I'm confirmed that I want to usurp the name Recollections. I cordially appreciate your effort!

On hold Until 5 September 2019. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 11:54, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
Done. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 00:51, 6 September 2019 (UTC)
Reason: My current name might reveal personal info; the new name is also what I use on other sites. I have previously registered an account with that name, but I forgot that I had done that and registered this account later. I would like to usurp that old account as I am active on this account and the old one is unused. I will reply to this with the old account as proof that I have access to that account.
Comment: Alright. "MBT" is a vandalism-only account at pt.wiki, I see no reason to wait 1 month (default), but I prefer wait for another opinion of renamers before procedure. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 11:13, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
Reason: I'd like to have username UnladenSwallow (with a capital "S"), so I need to usurp Unladenswallow (Wikipedia does not allow creation of accounts that differ only by case). Unladenswallow made a single edit on en.wiki 12 years ago. I've just created my account, but I have been editing Wikipedia for years. For example, my recent dynamic IPs are 22.214.171.124 (76 edits from 8-Aug-2019 to 14-Aug-2019) and 126.96.36.199 (202 edits from 22-Aug-2019 until present). All these edits are mine. Thank you.
Reason: I'm pretty sure that my original Somatos account was on en.wiki and when I started contributing to the it.wiki I understood (perhaps wrongly) that I had to make an account with a different name for issues related to the global accounts (which were new at the time). As I use the name somatos in my primary email and on all other web applications/platforms, I would like to usurp the username Somatos which only has 1 edit from 10 years ago.
Reason: Hi, when I subscribed I was a child and I used this name without thinking about it, but now I’d like, to tutelate my privacy, to not place my born year in my username and to use a more serious username. Ferdinando there’s on de.wikipedia but he has only 17 edits in 2009 and then he never used his account. Ferdinando~itwiki never used his account and I think he’ll never use. In alternative, the user Ferdi is ok. --Ferdi2005(Posta) 15:51, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
@Ferdi2005: Both Ferdinando and Ferdi have valid contributions and thus not eligible for usurpation. Please choose another username. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 09:58, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
Reason: DrakkarBCN is my original created account on 2009. But I don't remember my password, and there is neither a email registraded. So I can't Login. I please you to chang that account to assign me my right User name. I have created a account called Drakkar76, and I want to rename it to DrakkarBCN Thanks
Reason: I want to change my username to my sock puppetry's name.I took wrong name on the beginning of using Wikimedia and made the sock puppetry accidentally that I can't rename my username directly.Mattc123456c (talk) 12:26, 28 September 2019 (UTC)

Reason: I never really wanted the "1" on my username. French Wikipedia has a "Crossroads", but they have only edited their userpage and have not been back in 10 years. I think they could be usurped. Also it would be great if User:Crossroads1 at English could redirect to User:Crossroads if this works out, to preserve links to my userpage.--Crossroads1 (talk) 16:59, 28 August 2019 (UTC)
On hold until 28 September. Yes Crossroads1 will redirect to Crossroads. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 17:07, 28 August 2019 (UTC)
If you have proofs then file a SPI, this is not a place to discuss it.
@Crossroads1: Could you please confirm if you have had previous accounts? Your edit history on the English Wikipedia seems to indicate that this is not your first time around. Thanks --Fæ (talk) 11:12, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
@Fæ:, did you or did you not see my previous response to this exact same question, to which you were pinged? My answer is still the same as then. And since you almost certainly did see it, why are you asking me here? I'll take the high road and refrain from casting aspersions about you in return here. Crossroads1 (talk) 16:36, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
Stewards please note the evasive answer given. There is no statement about past accounts, with a denial of sockpuppetry but not block evasion.
Apart from the first 12 edits spread over 12 months, the account Crossroads1 has been highly active on the English Wikipedia from June 2019 (the last 5 months), making 1,713 further edits in this period. This is almost completely a single purpose account, with greater than 95% of edits exclusively on sexuality topics and showing an interest in researching the contributions of User:Haiduc including that account's user subpages, and in this short period of activity rapidly involving themselves in multiple highly contentious related discussions. There have been a few edits on the French Wikipedia, again exclusively on sexuality from the same point of view but relying on Google translate based on their own statement. Actions include use of several different dispute resolution notice boards, reverting other users and issuing warning templates to other contributors using Twinkle, not a typical behaviour of new Wikipedians in their first 5 months of active editing.
If the user is a sock, then the username they edit from will have no bearing on that. And you haven't given any actual proof of anything. If I were this user, I would be upset that you were harassing me by casting aspersions in multiple venues. – Ajraddatz (talk) 18:24, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
Stewards, please note my clear answer already linked to at my enwiki talk page: I have NO other accounts...Your description of my editing is a distortion. That means no other accounts past, present, or future. Since we are bringing up patterns of behavior, I would like to point out this recent enwiki ANI discussion  where Fæ was topic banned from human sexuality, broadly construed. I believe Fæ's behavior towards me here is because I was involved in that latter discussion, and because I edit in human sexuality while they are banned from doing so. I agree with Ajraddatz that this constitutes harassment. I request that Fæ stop stalking me and leave off harassing me.
Regarding my behavior, the description is very one-sided and distorted. And apparently someone new has to be incompetent, and should be unable to learn useful tools and procedures. My involvement in some contentious discussions is unavoidable for someone who edits in sex and gender topics. And it's normal to point out the occasional problem cross-wiki; I've seen it done numerous times. Regarding Haiduc, they have been indefinitely blocked on enwiki by ArbCom since 2010.  Because of this and their known content issues, it is perfectly appropriate to research their contributions. Crossroads1 (talk) 20:42, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
