@Superpes15 and Civvì: Can you guys look at this since there's a self block on itwiki? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 09:38, 18 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@1997kB: I'll contact the user via VRTS, (besides, local policy does not allow usernames in non-latin alfabets). Thanks --Civvì (talk) 11:13, 18 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
X mark.svg Not done Has been already renamed following the request in queue. --Civvì (talk) 22:28, 20 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Time2wait.svg On hold This request must absolutely be reversed imho. The username is not allowed by itwiki local policies, and Céréales Killer should have refrained from renaming itwiki user (since they probably don't know the Italian language, the itwiki policies, and surely they aren't aware of the issue regarding user blocking after a VTRS ticket), as I had kindly asked them two months ago. Renaming a blocked user is something we should always avoid when we don't know what's behind the block! There is no rush to rename a user a few minutes after the request without checking for other identical requests! --Superpes15 (talk) 20:45, 21 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I have processed the reverse renaming. ©éréales Kille® 10:35, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@NotReallySoroka: We discourage people to make request within short timespan and as you were renamed last month, I'd recommend to request later unless it's not really urgent. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:58, 19 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@DoctorTexan: Are you aware of (and comfortable with) the potential implications associated with using a real name? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 00:43, 28 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@1997kB: - I am yes. I have done extensive research and I also believe using my real name will hold me accountable here as well. Thank you for checking. DoctorTexan (talk) 02:03, 28 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

El anónimo antisistema

@El anónimo antisistema: Hi, do you want to be renamed to "Sargento de Hierro" or do you want to usurp "Sargento de hierro"? Regards --Superpes15 (talk) 19:55, 3 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Superpes15: I want to be renamed to “Sargento de Hierro”, but, as there are “Sargento de hierro”, the system does not allow changing the name, as it is very similar. El anónimo antisistema (talk) 21:10, 3 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'd not mind overriding antispoof restrictions here. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:09, 4 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@MarcoAurelio and Superpes15: Well then, proceed to the rename. El anónimo antisistema (talk) 17:09, 4 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Yes check.svg Done Thanks MarcoAurelio for your feedback :) Since the user has been inactive for many years and has 0 edits there should be no problems! --Superpes15 (talk) 16:40, 5 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]


From your request I understand that you want to recover your old account named Chelston, which is a request we can not help you. You may register another account again or just change your username of this account to contribute. If there is any misunderstanding, please submit another request, thank you. --Hamish 13:51, 6 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Time2wait.svg On hold until 17 May. We normally wait at least 5-6 months from registration before granting usurp, but since your account is simply a new account of an existing user and already has a lot of edits, I don't think there are any problems. For me it can be considered consolidated! --Superpes15 (talk) 11:03, 17 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Toghrul R

@Toghrul Rahimli: Just to be sure that you want to change Toghrul Rahimli to Togrul R? Also registeration date can't be transferred unfortunately. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 06:02, 27 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@1997kB, i've read checked the account merging discussion, and realized the issue. If possible, please, check this account's name to "Toghrul R" with the second part abbreviated (not "Togrul R" as the old acc), until the issue is fixed and we'll be able to merge the accounts globally.

User unavailable826

Time2wait.svg On hold ‐‐DutchTina (talk) 10:36, 30 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
X mark.svg Not done @User unavailable826: it looks like you have been renamed a few times now. You came back from a courtesy vanishing twice and now you try to come back for the third time. Your rename reason suggests you only want to be renamed because the redirects to your username will work again. If I look at your userpage I see your userpage states 'Not active (...) I am using User:AnoopZ for editing Wikimedia'. So you don't even want to use the account if we rename it. That with all other renames in mind made me choose not to rename your account again. If you have any questions or comments you can reply on this message on this page. ‐‐DutchTina (talk) 20:17, 30 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@DutchTina: i agree that i chose to vanish (once was accidentally and i don't even remember that it was twice) , second time it was done as simple rename, if you think renaming my account would be abused, i would request renaming my account and globally lock if you would, i also accept that previous rename were done because misunderstanding with my local wikipedia, i just feel difficult to check my old edits with current one instead of user unavailable i find looking for username anoop would be easier.-- ★ Anoop / ಅನೂಪ್ © 00:54, 31 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
