  • @轻语者:Are you serious? The pronounciation of "蠣蝗" is the same as "李煌" and his/her former username is offensive. I don't believe this request is in good faith. Additionally, this user has only few contributions. In any case, I think this request is unreasonable. I think you should retreat this request.--Kuon.Haku (talk) 14:09, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
I think this request needs to be dealt locally by an admin, not here. So marking X mark.svg Not done. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:35, 11 February 2020 (UTC)


@אלחנן.ר.: Do you meant to rename to Elirov? I'm just confirming as your request was in Hebrew and I fixed it to this. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:48, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

@1997kB:, thanks, but i ran into a little problem. It seems that local ruwiki administrators can't create an account either due to similarities. What can i do in this case? --Serhio Magpie (talk) 02:45, 3 February 2020 (UTC)
Sorry for a ping, seems that the admin had issue with the private tab. Everything is good. --Serhio Magpie (talk) 04:33, 3 February 2020 (UTC)


@Adelsheim: Accounts with edits are not usurped unless they are obvious vandalism or userspace edits. So you need to pick a different username. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:24, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
Thank you. I withdraw my usurpation request. Adelsheim (talk) 10:24, 12 February 2020 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done Request withdrawn. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:08, 12 February 2020 (UTC)


@Elcairo: How many accounts are there exactly and do you have password of all of them? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:23, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
Also Elcairo we can not merge contributions but to an extent this problem can be fixed by doing local renames, but in that case you will lost contributions of Elcairo account on the project(s) we will rename. Is that ok for you? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:55, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
@Elcairo in altre parole, si può staccare l'utenza di wikisource con 696 contributi da Special:CentralAuth/Elcairo~itwikisource piazzandola al posto di quella con 7 contributi annessa a Special:CentralAuth/Elcairo.--Sakretsu (炸裂) 16:13, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB:@Sakretsu: thank you for the answer! No problem for me about the contributions I'll lost on it.wikisource with the "Elcairo" account; Yes, there are too many case like this (now i don't know how many exactly) but I'm willing to recover just the account with the main contributions (like Special:CentralAuth/Elcairo~itwiktionary, Special:CentralAuth/Elcairo~roa-tarawiki, Special:CentralAuth/Elcairo~itwikiquote, Special:CentralAuth/Elcairo~enwiki, Special:CentralAuth/Elcairo~itwikiversity, and so on). Maybe i've to do a new request here for each of these projects? --Elcairo (talk) 17:05, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
@Elcairo: just list here the rest of your local accounts with notable contributions, if there is more. Also, please log in Elcairo~itwikiversity and claim on its userpage to be Elcairo as you did here.--Sakretsu (炸裂) 23:38, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
Most importantly, Elcairo, Are you able to login with all these accounts you listed? If yes please sign with them here. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:11, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
So, to recap and complete, here the list of the accounts with the main contributions:
I'm able to login with all of these, and now i'll sign with them. Thank you! --Elcairo (talk) 14:49, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
  • @علاء: I guess we are ready. @Elcairo: Please keep watching this page as your help will be needed to complete unification after renames. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:06, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB: Yes check.svg Done but hope we'll not preform such things again for accounts with 7 edits, I'm talking exactly about (Elcairo~itwikinews). There's a lot of unattached accounts, so please ask the user to attached all of them! not only for main account. Best --Alaa :)..! 13:39, 13 February 2020 (UTC)
@Elcairo:, you have to login each account you signed here and go to Special:MergeAccount to complete unification. علاء, yeah sure I will be careful checking that. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:44, 13 February 2020 (UTC)
Done! I don't known why, but only for the ~itwikisource, ~itwikinews and it.wiktionary accounts seems like it don't need the password in Special:MergeAccount. It's all fine? --Elcairo (talk) 16:43, 13 February 2020 (UTC)
Yeah all fine. All unattached accounts are attached now. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 16:51, 13 February 2020 (UTC)
Great, thank you! --Elcairo (talk) 17:07, 13 February 2020 (UTC)


Hey, you need to create another account to complete the usurption process. So firstly register new account and comment with it here, then we can go for usurption. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 06:36, 8 February 2020 (UTC)
I created a new account: JoshNekl —The preceding unsigned comment was added by JoshNekl (talk) 22:31, 12 February 2020 (UTC)
@JoshNekl: Just a confirmation, do you have email attached to JoshNekl now? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 05:08, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
Yes, I have email attached to Newname at gmail —The preceding unsigned comment was added by JoshNekl (talk) 05:55, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done You can now login with JoshuaNekl. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 07:20, 14 February 2020 (UTC)


@علاء: It looks like they are trying to move Howigotover92@commonswiki to Isento@commonswiki. Confirmation with both accounts Howigotover92, Isento. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:27, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
@Howigotover92: We can not merge contributions of both accounts but we can do a local rename so that those 197 contributions will come under Isento username and 24 will go under Howigotover92. Is that what you want? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:52, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
Sure. Isento (talk) 11:34, 12 February 2020 (UTC)
@Isento and Howigotover92: Now you have to login with both accounts and go to Special:MergeAccount to complete unification. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 17:11, 16 February 2020 (UTC)
All Yes check.svg Done Thanks! ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:59, 17 February 2020 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done @أبو السعد 22: As I told you already on wikidata talk page that merging accounts is not possible, so best you can do is stop using the other account and use one you want. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:59, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
