X mark.svg Not done @MR. MAJUSCULES: Sorry, but you were renamed less than a week ago and there is no serious reason to proceed with a new rename. Also, Elaos is an existing username and you are not eligible to ask for usurpation. Regards --Superpes15 (talk) 01:19, 12 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Oops, sry. MR. MAJUSCULES (talk) 17:57, 12 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@JeffTomVoll: do you have a specific reason for this request ? --- FitIndia Talk Admin on Commons 16:46, 20 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • Hi. This is my old nickname - created 5 years ago. I created account/nickname on Wiki in very short time and editing few years. That's the problem. Thank You. JeffTomVoll (talk) 17:07, 20 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Similar to Ezy ryder on EN Wikipedia which is stale for 8 years, will leave a message on their talk page. Its on hold till then for two weeks to a month. :@1997kB: if you could please have a look at this thank you.--- FitIndia Talk Admin on Commons 17:28, 20 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
We have no such practice as you mentioned in this message. We never rename conflicting usernames, this is only done in the cases of usurpation and even in those request, they are not renamed to user~wikiname. For normal renames if conflicting user have fair amount of edits or is active then just decline the request. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:53, 21 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Veteranenshop: Personal usernames that imply shared access, such as "Jack and Jill", are also not permitted. However, usernames are acceptable if they contain a company or group name but are clearly intended to denote an individual person, such as "Mark at WidgetsUSA", "Jack Smith at the XY Foundation", "WidgetFan87", etc. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:14, 16 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Yes check.svg Done. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:49, 27 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]


The chosen username is too similar to existing usernames or it used to be username of someone else that got renamed: Eru Roraito (talk • contribs • block • xwiki-contribs • xwiki-date (alt) • CA • ST • lwcheckuser) and Eru roraito (talk • contribs • block • xwiki-contribs • xwiki-date (alt) • CA • ST • lwcheckuser). Not opposed to rename given that those two accounts are both inactive but I'd prefer a 2O here. Thanks. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:47, 27 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@MarcoAurelio What is a "2O"?--Hdiddan (talk) 23:31, 27 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I think it means "a second opinion", that is, he would like another global renamer to comment on this request as he isn't sure himself. Leaderboard (talk) 10:22, 28 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Hdiddan: Sorry, it means second opinion as Leaderboard said. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:12, 28 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@MarcoAurelio: I usually grant renaming if similar usernames haven't edit recently (in the last 4-5 years) and have no significant edits. --Superpes15 (talk) 11:23, 28 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Superpes15: Thanks, this was my thinking as well. I'll proceed with the rename. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:13, 28 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
The rename was in progress but it has failed on Unless it recovers automatically in the next three hours (ref), a system administrator will need to intervene to complete it. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:20, 28 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications


@Cylinderpress: Ti rispondo in italiano visto che la tua utenza è italiana. Per richiedere un'usurpazione bisogna dimostrare di avere un account con una storia solida. Per questo viene richiesto un minimo di tempo di possesso e diversi contributi (tu ne hai davvero troppo pochi per potere dimostrare una "solida" storia contributiva). Ti suggerisco di selezionare un altro nome, non esistente, e procederò alla rinomina e allo sblocco su Wikipedia in lingua italiana (che sarà parziale finché non chiarirai la tua posizione secondo la policy sul conflitto d'interesse e sui contributi su commissione). Grazie --Superpes15 (talk) 23:22, 5 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
X mark.svg Not done Per above (account not eligible for usurpation) --Superpes15 (talk) 00:08, 8 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]


@Esteban16: Accounts with valid edits are not usurped and 217 edits are way too much to ignore. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:05, 8 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Munja usurp: Sorry, but if you cannot confirm ownership of your account by recovering the previous account and by logging in as Munja, the account cannot be usurped. Regards. --Superpes15 (talk) 23:36, 5 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Superpes, if I could do that, I would not ask for usurp. I previously did this and sreward approved this. If I have to wait 1 month for old user to answer if they are using this username (which they don't since it's my account), then fine, I can wait. You can be rest assured that I am one of big contribitors on bs wiki, and others. Regards. --Munja usurp (talk) 09:24, 6 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Munja usurp: You have already asked for an usurp in the past and this is anomalous. Please add a valid email address and keep the password (perhaps enabling 2FA). Regarding this request, I noticed that last time some users proved your identity, can this be done again? --Superpes15 (talk) 10:02, 6 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I contacted my wiki-friend here. When he arrives, he might approve it's me. --Munja usurp (talk) 14:43, 8 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Munja usurp: Even if your identity is confirmed, the problem is that the account now has a lot of edits and has already been usurped previously, so technically it is not suitable for usurpation. I would be inclined to reject the request but I ask 1997kB that managed the previous one. Btw I suggest you contact T&S to restore your password (if you have a phabricator account you can confirm your ownership more easily). In this way we can avoid to usurp! Regards. --Superpes15 (talk) 15:44, 8 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Exactly, I don't think usurpation is way to go here. I'd suggest filing a phabricator task (like phab:T272732) to request a password reset or just use a different username. I have accepted last usurpation with a thought that it scrambling password is one time thing but here you are with another scrambling and who knows in future you might do this again, so no. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:05, 9 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Did it via T&S. Thanks for assistance. --Munja (talk) 08:18, 9 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Glad you recovered the account! So I can close this request with X mark.svg Not done! Regards :) --Superpes15 (talk) 11:17, 9 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Est. 2021

X mark.svg Not done @Est. 2021: I'm sorry, but since you are blocked for sockpuppeting on itwiki, you are not eligible for a rename or a usurpation. Also, even if you solve the blocking problem, your account is still "too young" to be able to request a usurpation. Regards --Superpes15 (talk) 01:11, 12 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Superpes15: My account was Vicipaedianus x (talk · contribs). I created this second account to ask for explanations for my unmotivated block on, that's why they blocked this account too with the accuse of sockpuppeting. The problem will never be solved on, nor with my 7 years old account nor with this one, nor with a new account, since the admin unmotivatedly blocked my range of IPs too. I could go back to my old account Vicipaedianus x, but I want to keep this one, just with a shorter name. Est. 2021 (talk · contribs) 03:06, 12 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Vicipaedianus x

X mark.svg Not done Considering the block on your homewiki and your reason for usurpation, I don't think it's an serious request. Plus we hardly rename blocked users and abusing multiple accounts is a serious block. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:54, 14 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]


@Dodd: Is this a request to merge these both accounts? If yes then unfortunately merging is not possible. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:48, 14 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
There are three accounts involved. DoddLu, Dodd, and Dodd~commonswiki. I would like to know any possible to let me have fewer ones. Thanks a lot. --Dodd (talk) 03:35, 15 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
It depends which account you want to keep in the end. If you choose Dodd as your username then there is a possibility but for that you have to confirm that you have access to all three accounts. Just login with them and confirm by commenting here. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:05, 15 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
