Comment Comment Hello @DeltaQuad: so newname is AmandaNP or Amandan (we can usurp it with waiting period for 1 month)? --Alaa :)..! 10:15, 26 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@علاء: AmandaNP as noted in the request. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 10:17, 26 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

ummm Yes check.svg Done by Sakretsu (rename progress) --Alaa :)..! 10:19, 26 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry, I was already handling this and went ahead without noticing these new messages. The existing username is actually User:Amandanp, which was misread as "Amandan" by the renamer who denied the request through the form. The account "Amandanp" is 7 years old and has no significant contributions. In a similar occasion I was told that usurpation is unnecessary when usernames don't perfectly match and are still easily distinguishable. Since DeltaQuad has privileged access and is already well-known as "AmandaNP" on Wikimedia projects, I think that the user "Amandanp" will be forced to rename their account anyway if they ever return. Please let me know if you disagree--Sakretsu (炸裂) 10:48, 26 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks Sakretsu. You are correct 100%, it was only weird to see the rename-conflict message on rename tool, I thought I made a problem. lol. Thanks again --Alaa :)..! 10:59, 26 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Strebsan → Strebsam

Status:    In progress

Template:Clerk note The requested username "Strebsam" is not registered locally, but is reserved for a global account. If you own the global account, please ensure you have included a confirmation link. If you do not own the global account, this may preclude renaming. Requests for usurpation of global usernames with significant attachments on other projects must be made at meta:Steward requests/Username changes. AnomieBOT 20:02, 29 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]


  • Comment Comment Hello Alsakan, please log in with (StellarHalo) and sign below my comment to confirm that StellarHalo is your account. Also, we can't merge account, but exceptional I can (exchange process):
    • Change current Alsakan@commons (with 583 edits) to StellarHalo@commons
    • Change current StellarHalo@commons (with 0 edits) to Alsakan@commons

Is that fine for you? --Alaa :)..! 13:47, 27 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

  • Comment Comment StellarHalo is Alsakan --StellarHalo (talk) 01:19, 28 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • Comment Comment I want to prioritize keeping the record of all edits and uploads I made as "Alsakan" on Commons while the edits I made as "StellarHalo" on Wikipedia are expendable. So, since you guys unfortunately could not merge differently named accounts directly, I would like Alsakan@commons to usurp the StellarHalo@commons if all the edits and uploads I made as "Alsakan" on Commons will be preserved. I hope I correctly understand the implications of the above two choices you gave me. --Alsakan (talk) 01:26, 28 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks @Alsakan:, and it's one choice but with two phases, that:

  1. Usurp StellarHalo@commons to StellarHalo (usurped)@commons
  2. Move Alsakan@commons to StellarHalo@commons
  3. Move StellarHalo (usurped)@commons to Alsakan@commons

And yes, all edits will be preserved, it's only exchange process between @commons accounts. Hope it more clear now? --Alaa :)..! 10:19, 28 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@علاء: Everything is clear now. Please proceed. Thank you. --Alsakan (talk) 11:18, 28 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done. @Alsakan: can you please go to Special:MergeAccount from both accounts? waiting your confirmation to close this request --Alaa :)..! 13:29, 28 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]

@علاء: Confirmed. Everything is working fine as expected. You can close this request now. StellarHalo (talk) 01:56, 29 June 2020 (UTC)[reply]
