  • @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X mark.svg Not done Request withdrawn.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)

أبو السعد ٢٢

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)


X mark.svg Not done @Gornim9v: Jiko have valid contributions thus a barrier to usurption. Additionally your account is too new for a usurption request. So please choose a username that's not already registered and request here. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:38, 28 February 2020 (UTC)

@霜奶仙: User 3 has valid contributions over eowiki, thus not eligible for usurpation. So please choose another one if you still wanted to be renamed. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:28, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
@霜奶仙: Firstly, 3 have 30+ contributions, should not be a candidate for ursup, and can you explain why you are blocked as a sockpuppet in itwiki. Thanks--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 14:29, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
OK, my alternate user name is C, because this account only registers Wikipedia in four languages, two of which are still banned. If I can, I can accept it. I've discussed the prohibition of itwiki with the community in zhwiki. It should be unreasonable.--霜奶仙 (talk) 15:26, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
@霜奶仙:"C" is still not eligible as they have lots of valid edit, please choose again. After discussion with zhwp admin and crat Stang, I believe you are in good faith to register that sock account, but please disclose all alternative accounts here so that I can help you. If this is too hard to understand I can repeat in Chinese. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:29, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
After consideration, I decided to choose "-" as the third candidate user name. If the number of edits is too many, then the fourth candidate user name is "IN". In addition, I have two separate accounts named "霜奶仙是傻屄" and "肏霜奶仙他妈". In addition, "霜奶仙噪你女马" is not registered by me. It is an aggressive user name registered by another person intentionally, and it has been banned in zhwiki.--霜奶仙 (talk) 15:57, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
@霜奶仙:User "-" have contributions in another wiki, it isn't valid for ursup. I replace with your 4th choice. I understood your situation, there is really no need for a 45 days old account to do these accounts and next time please declare this is to prevent impersonation. In addition, you have to resolve the situation in itwp, do you need my help?--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:02, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
Good idea. I'm it-0. @Camouflaged Mirage:另外你可以说中文吗?我的绝大部分英语都是用翻译的,我已经不想用翻译了。--霜奶仙 (talk) 16:17, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
I will. @霜奶仙:我会向意大利语维基管理员反馈。是的,我会说中文。homewiki也是中文维基。--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:58, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
Comment Comment I had left a note on the itwp blocking admin talkpage to help them explain the block on itwp. This is the thread. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 17:12, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
@Camouflaged Mirage: Hello, user @霜奶仙: ‎registered on also as @霜奶仙是傻逼: - this latter user was created directly on as if he was a local user. But I don't see this latter in the list of names above, BTW. Could you please clarify the origin for this other username? Is it yours or does it belong to someone else? From the CU data, I saw that both were operating on exactly the same connection with exactly the same device. The reason for the block is that on we suffer from a sock master who usually relies on Asian proxies, registering multiple users with similar names within few minutes and using mobile devices (or faking the UA in this way). This pattern looked quite similar to this LTA, especially because it was created manually on exactly two minutes after the user 霜奶仙 was created automatically on I have the following records (I translate to English the Italian log):
16 dic 2019
(Registri) . . 05:03 . . 霜奶仙是傻逼 discussione contributi blocca (Bloccato precedentemente) User 霜奶仙是傻逼 was created 
(Registri) . . 05:03 . . 霜奶仙是傻逼 discussione contributi blocca (Bloccato precedentemente) was created
(Registri) . . 05:01 . . 霜奶仙 discussione contributi blocca (Bloccato precedentemente) was created automatically
This was considered as a match with the LTA, therefore the block. Now the situation is restored, both users are active on (but if 霜奶仙是傻逼 is not yours, you should please explain how does it come he was able to register within few minutes from the same connection as yours).--L736Etell me 18:38, 29 January 2020 (UTC)


@L736E: I shall help the user answer as they are also not that good in English. All the information is from my reading of their statement in zhwiki thread (linked above). 霜奶仙是傻逼 is indeed their account as per their declaration. As per why they might be able to create an account, I am not sure. The autoblock should had prevented them to register an account. Are they using proxies (which I think they are as they are likely from China)? Regards,--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 19:01, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
@Camouflaged Mirage: Yes, I can confirm you that the registration on occured via a proxy server located in the U.S. (according to whois data).--L736Etell me 07:30, 30 January 2020 (UTC)
@L736E: Thank you for your assistance thus far. Appreciate it. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:33, 30 January 2020 (UTC)
