SUL finalization[edit]

If you are requesting a merge of a global account with one or more unconnected local accounts as part of finalizing your single unified login (SUL) username, please specify which wikis and accounts you want to merge into your global account. These accounts were typically be named "account name~wikiname". Please note that we can only merge a local account into a global account when the global account has no edits on the same wiki as the local account.

How to add an entry here[edit]

To add an entry, please copy and paste the text below into the appropriate section.

=== Oldname ===
|status = <!--don't change this line-->
|domain = global
|Oldname =
|Newname =
|reason = (your remarks here)


For global rename requests:

=== Example ===
|status     = <!--don't change this line-->
|domain     = global
|Oldname    = Example
|Newname    = Foo
|reason     = your remarks here

Making a request for your own account[edit]

For changing your username on one wiki:

Please include the following information in your request:

  • the old username,
  • the new username,
  • please sign ~~~~ request with your account for a simple move (first section), or sign this request with both the originating and the target accounts if you are requesting a merge (second section).

If anything is missing from your request, a steward will request more information. This helps ensure that you are requesting a rename for your own account. Please check before posting your request that the username you want is available. You can test that by going to the (new) user page and looking into the sidebar. If there is a link to user contributions, the account already exists, or check via Special:CentralAuth.

Private requests[edit]

Requests that need to be made in private should be sent using this direct wiki-email interface while logged-in.

Simple rename requests[edit]

If your rename request is simple and does not involve usurpation of an existing account or other SUL issues, you have two options:

  1. Use the request form at Special:GlobalRenameRequest; or
  2. Submit the request below in this section.

Please use this tool to check if the username is taken before filing a request.

Portale SNP[edit]

@Portale SNP: Salve, in genere su Wikipedia in lingua italiana non accettiamo la professione/qualifica o il titolo accanto al nome. Inoltre, si sconsiglia fortemente l'uso del nome e del cognome reale. La invito a leggere attentamente le linee guida sul nome utente e, solo successivamente, a indicarmi l'username al quale verrà rinominato. Dopo la rinomina confermo che la sua utenza verrà sbloccata. Cordiali saluti --Superpes15 (talk) 11:25, 7 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications[edit]

Please add new requests at the end of the section. Sections should be titled your username and requests should be signed by the requesting user.
Please note: Per standard procedure, accounts with valid edits are not usurped, and the target account must be notified by renamer at least one month before usurpation.

J.A.W.P.U.S.E.R. I hate mad mother.[edit]

@J.A.W.P.U.S.E.R. I hate mad mother.: You said you created a temporary account. Can you confirm this from your main account by writing here? Please remind that new users are not allowed to ask for usurpation, because some experience and good conduct are required. Generally you can ask for usurpation after at least 6 months from the registration (and if you have a certain activity - then a number of edits that demonstrate some experience). Best regards. --Superpes15 (talk) 11:21, 7 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
