@FNAFPUPPETMASTER: Is the page on meta? If yes, I will move it for you. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:13, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
It is on simple. It matches one of our title blacklist items. I will move it there for him. (though of course he is still asking for a name change) -Djsasso (talk) 13:57, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
Although I am planning to take a long break, I still wish to change this name for when I return. FNAFPUPPETMASTER (talk) 16:04, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done The username is virtually the same, and althrough there is an active block, the user's way more active at simplewiki. Put shortly, I don't see any reason why declining would benefit the project(s) => approved. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 16:13, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: Thank you, Could you rename my SPI-related pages on enwiki to match my new name? Fnafpuppetmaster (talk) 16:22, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold There are weird local-only accounts, [1]. I'm looking into how they got created and how this mess can be fixed. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 13:21, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

Created T247408. What makes me curious is Special:CentralAuth/Ɱ - that seems to be the same letter, but uppercase? At least nowadays, username cannot start with a lowercase letter. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 13:27, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

ok, so you can close this request. thanks --ɱ 23:07, 16 March 2020 (UTC)

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications


@Chignon and Canonicalization: There is no issue of number of edits, so should I proceed renaming Chignon or Canonicalization? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:03, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done Please deal with your block on French Wikipedia first. @AlainPainchaud: ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:34, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
Dear Madame, Sir, I already tried to discuss with the French part. They block me for everything, including contacting the administrator and changing my name locally. So, I had no choice but to look outside of Wiki French. So, can you help me to change to global username / delete my contributions in wiki french and change my username to "Exitalain2020"? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by AlainPainchaud (talk) 13:11, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
No we can't do that. We do not rename to bypass local restrictions. So you need to resolve it locally. As for the talk page access I'm pinging local admins who are renamers too @Céréales Killer and Litlok:. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:19, 12 March 2020 (UTC)


@Captainofhope: Are you trying to move Binukalarickan@ml.wikipedia to Captainofhope@ml.wikipedia? If yes then I would like to mention that we can not merge contributions of both accounts but we can do a local rename so that those 1,378 contributions will come under Captainofhope username and 1 will go under Binukalarickan. If you are ok with that please mention that in your reply. In addition, please sign with Binukalarickan account here. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 07:56, 21 February 2020 (UTC)
Yes, Please do the renaming locally, Unfortunately old account is not used for years and not signining in to the account (password issues), But you will be able to confirm my currect account is the same as old - ...Captain......Tälk tö me.. 17:22, 26 February 2020 (UTC)
@Captainofhope: Having access to both accounts is necessary in local renames so that after rename unification can be completed. If you don't have access to old account then we can't go for a rename. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:44, 28 February 2020 (UTC)
Found old user details, Please do a global rename or local wiki individual rename with merge as possible by the community 𝘣𝘪𝘯𝘶𝘬𝘢𝘭𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘤𝘬𝘢𝘯 (talk) 14:29, 8 March 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB: Done. --Alaa :)..! 10:07, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
@Captainofhope and Binukalarickan: Now you have to login with both accounts and go to Special:MergeAccount to complete unification. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 10:13, 15 March 2020 (UTC)
Done, But still entries shows with old username OLD Entries - ...Captain......Tälk tö me.. 04:29, 19 March 2020 (UTC)

Note: User:3 have valid contributions thus not eligible for usurption. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 08:50, 17 March 2020 (UTC)
Yes, they do have valid edits, but here’s a list of days the user edited on and how many edits they made on those days.
  • March 12, 2006 (27 edits)
  • January 29, 2008 (3 edits)
  • August 17, 2009 (4 edits)
  • September 9, 2010 (2 edits, one was to their userpage)
  • Feb 5, 2010 and Oct 6, 2010 (1 edit each)
  • This user has not edited since.
Looking at this user’s kinda weird editing (history, scheme, pattern... I’m not sure what to put here) and seeing as the user performed most of their edits on one day in 2006 and have been inactive since 2010, I think this is suitable enough for usurpation, or what I like to call it, “‘surping the soup.” (If I’m wrong and/or this doesn’t go through, my second choice is User:61, but because that user doesn’t exist, I will request at WP:CHUS in English Wikipedia.) 23:12, 20 March 2020 (UTC)
Whoops, I forgot to log in. That IP was me. PorkchopGMX (talk) 23:14, 20 March 2020 (UTC)
@PorkchopGMX: As long as there are valid edits we can't usurp the account. It's not just the issue of account inactivity but attribution of edits too. So you have to go with alternate username. Thanks. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:26, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
Marking this as X mark.svg Not done. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:28, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
Ok, I understand, I thought that the low number of edits and inactivity would work. (I was probably a little too excited.) I have decided on my second choice User:61 instead, but because it doesn't exist I’ve made a request at WP:CHUS on English Wikipedia. PorkchopGMX (talk) 16:15, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
