Request rejected[edit]

I don't understand why my request was rejected. I am not trying to avoid sanctions (which have already been applied and expired anyway), I am trying to remove my association with this website. Wicka wicka (talk) 21:36, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

@Wicka wicka: What request?   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 03:44, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: Wicka wicka is probably referring to Special:GlobalRenameQueue/request/53477. I was unsure how to proceed when active sanctions were in place, but I i think it can now be regarded as a normal right to vanish request. It will have to wait, though, because of current technical issues. — Yerpo Eh? 07:48, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
@Yerpo: Not being a Global renamer yet, I don't have access to that page.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 12:36, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
@Yerpo: Thanks! No worries on any technical issues, there is no rush whatsoever. Wicka wicka (talk) 12:52, 20 June 2019 (UTC)


Hello, my request to have my name changed to Flügel-Flitzer (with privacy reasons) was rejected because apparently there is a user on the German Wikipedia with te name Flügelflitzer. I read on the Dutch wikipedia that you can ask to take over a username when said user is inactive. The account with the name Flügelflitzer was started in 2013, but this person does not have a single edit to a Wikipedia. Is it possible for me to still take the name Flügel-Flitzer? Thanks in advance for your time. TimGiesbers (talk) 22:31, 9 July 2019 (UTC)

@TimGiesbers: IMO such requests can be accepted, I'll be happy to process it, if you make another request. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:47, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
