Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications

ẞ qwertz

@ẞ qwertz: "Leidenfrost" have valid edits at and, per standard procedure, we don't usurp accounts with valid edits. I suggest that you choose other username. Rafael (stanglavine) msg 16:59, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Is There Anybody Out There? --Informationswiedergutmachung (talk) 20:26, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
I think you need to wait for a steward to look at this reqeust. The username you are requesting has some edits all round diffrent projects. Just hold on, and some one will look at it. --SimmeD (talk) 06:47, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Where Have All The Stewards Gone? <scnr> --Informationswiedergutmachung (talk) 20:25, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

Given that merging accounts is not possible, we will have to move "Jack User" to "Jack User (usurped)" and then "Informationswiedergutmachung" to "Jack User". Is that okay? Also, we'll need a confirmation from "Jack User" that this is okay. Thanks, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 20:33, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

Jack User and Informationswiedergutmachung = same User. Yes, it is ok. Feelin a little bit schizophrenic... :D --Jack User (talk) 21:09, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Back to my newold name... :D --Informationswiedergutmachung (talk) 21:11, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
And if you need further confirmation: steward DerHexer is able to confirm that Jack User is Informationswiedergutmachung. Regards, best. --Informationswiedergutmachung (talk) 21:22, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done the progress. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:28, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
Thx. --Jack User (talk) 11:19, 10 October 2019 (UTC)


Hello @MoonyTheDwarf: account Moony has valid edits over Hungarian Wikipedia, which is barrier to usurption. Please choose another username. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:34, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
@1997kB: Would User:Moon be alright? MoonyTheDwarf (talk) 02:44, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
@MoonyTheDwarf: yes, should I proceed? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:51, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
Hold on, sorry it's not ok, Moon was previously username of Lader Gwiader, which is a security issue. So you have to choose another. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:54, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
Consider my request retracted then. Thanks. MoonyTheDwarf (talk) 02:57, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

Inappropriate terrorist's username (urgent)

  • Schmarrnintelligenz I don't believe you can request for a username change for anyone other than yourself. If it needs to be globally hidden, please use m:SRG and use the {{LockHide|username|hidename=1}} template, though personally I'm not sure that qualifies. Praxidicae (talk) 19:08, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Declined Declined Per the above, current policy does not allow renaming inappropriate usernames. Regards, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 19:27, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Can @WMFOffice, Katherine (WMF), and JEissfeldt (WMF): or anybody else do that? --SI 19:40, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
WMF staffers cannot violate established policy because a name is offensive, Schmarrnintelligenz and further there is no reason that name should be changed, much less to another name which presumably was chosen to make fun of them. Praxidicae (talk) 19:42, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Considering it hasn't edited, there's a decent possibility an editor or user created it to prevent vandals from doing so. Regardless, unless the account edits, there really isn't anything to do, and if they do start editing the result will be a lock and hide, not a rename. Vermont (talk) 19:48, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Renaming will also have the side effect of leaving the username recorded on every local username log where the account exists. I suggest to block and ignore. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 19:53, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, MarcoAurelio, can you do the block, or where do I have to ask for that? --SI 20:01, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Please be sure that I did not and do not intend to make fun of anybody in the light of that terrible attack. I had expected there was an established way to rename impersonators' abusive name usurpations, that any user with more experience than me would have automatically applied. I am just looking for a working solution and am really baffled how this seems to be seen as unwelcome. BTW I am not a native English speaker! Not every words sits correct when I write in Englisch. --SI 19:56, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Deutsch: Der idiotische Benutzername wurde blockiert und gut. Reicht völlig. Gruß
Englisch: The idiotic username was blocked and good. Is enough. Regards
--Informationswiedergutmachung (talk) 20:30, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
As you can see, it was feasible to do more: the global account doesn't exist anymore. --SI 11:09, 10 October 2019 (UTC) P. S. (German) Deine überhebliche Meinungsäusserung ohne jeglichen Informationsgehalt war mal wieder völlig deplatziert.
@Schmarrnintelligenz: Als ob das dein hektischer Aktionismus (Oh mein Gott: ein Benutzerkonto wurde erstellt, mit einem ungeeigneten Namen! Die Welt geht unter!) nicht gewesen wäre. Und lerne bitte zu unterschreiben. Ich unterschreibe dann mal mit meinem alten/neuen Benutzernamen, siehe weiter oben. --Jack User (talk) 13:22, 10 October 2019 (UTC)


@CanalesQuintanilla: Is new username a typo? - You are requesting to usurp Special:CentralAuth/MCQ without the "(" and ")"? --SimmeD (talk) 11:24, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
@SimmeD: MCQ or (MCQ), both are good options --CanalesQuintanilla (talk) 03:00, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
@CanalesQuintanilla: In that case you will be renamed to the name you requested (MCQ), can you confirm this? --SimmeD (talk) 10:53, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
@SimmeD: In this case i requested (MCQ) --CanalesQuintanilla (talk) 21:06, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
