global rename about User:WQL[edit]

Recently, this user requested courtesy vanishing and usurped the username of WQL with his own old sockpuppet account. However, after so-called courtesy vanishing, the cross-wiki activity of WQL has not ceased at all. Courtesy vanishing means any user leave permanently. "If the user returns, the "vanishing" will likely be fully reversed, the old and new accounts will be linked, and any outstanding sanctions or restrictions will be resumed." I would like to have your opinion on should the courtesy vanishing be reverted? --J.Wong 19:31, 9 August 2018 (UTC)

@Wong128hk: Exactly as the policy says if someone edits after vanishing we have to link their old and new names or reverse the renaming. But before doing so I think we should also ask WQL about their return. Can you please contact them about the issue? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:50, 10 August 2018 (UTC)


Hi, could you also delate my userpage on meta? Cassjus (talk) 16:24, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

@Cassjus: Sorry I can't, because I am not a sysop. But you can request it's deletion by adding {{delete|Author's request}} on it. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 16:34, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Done; thank you :) Cassjus (talk) 16:46, 14 August 2018 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Thanks your revert on this page: Steward_requests/Global permissions. WikimakerX (talk) 10:37, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

No problem! ‐‐1997kB (talk) 10:55, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Clarification on Usurpation/rename[edit]

Thanks for jumping in on Username_changes and your helpful information! I must admit that I am still slightly confused by the process. When filling out, should I be logged in as the old account or the new one? I am previewing my request before submitting it, and it indicates Philipwith1L → Phildelta9 . The arrow here seems to point in the opposite direction of Philipwith1L taking over Phildelta9. Perhaps my confusion stems from the instructions which state "Log in to your present account." to post the usurp template on the other accounts Talk page. In reading, I've come to understand that this process can potentially be a pain and entail more work than the end user anticipates. I hope this is not the case for my situation, and I greatly appreciate your time and assistance. I've been wanting to get back into contributing and editing, but keep hesitating due to not wanting to spread the old user name. My ideal outcome is that Phildelta9 unified login goes away and I only use Philipwith1L across all projects going forward. Thanks! Philipwith1L (talk) 20:24, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

@Philipwith1L: Hello, Login with the Phildelta9 account and replace TARGET NAME with Philipwith1L and YOUR REASON with reason, after that login with Philipwith1L and sign below the request confirming you have access to both accounts and it's done at your end. Feel free to ask if you encounter any other problem! ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:44, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
@Phildelta9: ^^ ‐‐1997kB (talk) 16:47, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
@1997kB: Cheers, thanks, excuse the delay! Philipwith1L (talk) 19:51, 26 October 2018 (UTC)


No, seriously, it's me. I am contributing to Bosnian Wikipedia for a long time, and for some others as well. As an evidence, I can provide document I translated for CEE Meeting 2018 in Bosnian, that I translated for @Ата: from Ukrainian Wikipedia. With Croatian Wikipedia I won't have any problems, because their policy is if you make a new account, you can continue from scratch, as long as you respect rules. Change of username is not an issue. --Munja12 (talk) 16:55, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

@Munja12: I understand, but you need prove that account belongs to you, maybe some other wikipedian could confirm it who knows you in real life. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:28, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
@C3r4: and @Golden Bosnian Lily:, could you approve this is me? :D --Munja12 (talk) 17:15, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
Yes, I could confirm that this user in RL is the same as bs:User:Munja.--C3r4 (talk) 06:54, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
@Fraxinus: As a Croatian Wikipedia bureaucrat and admin, what's your view on this as the user Munja is blocked on hrwiki and after renaming Munja12 to Munja there will be no block on Munja account anymore. Also as they mentioned above — With Croatian Wikipedia I won't have any problems, because their policy is if you make a new account, you can continue from scratch, as long as you respect rules. Is this applicable in this case? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:50, 1 December 2018 (UTC)


Hello! On Croatian wikipedia when somebody is blocked and opens a new user name we block him again if we find out that is the same person. If we don't find out that is the same person and this time user behaves according to rules, we don't block him.--Fraxinus (talk) 22:10, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

@Munja12: Please file new request. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:47, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
@Fraxinus: FYI: I have renamed them, so you can decide now that they still need a block or not. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:53, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Abbas dhothar[edit]

I am admin on wesrten punjabi wiki (pnbwiki) . I created some Media wiki gadgets for punjabi i.e ( it is for correcting punjabi words . Problem is that now I have not access in media wiki , so I can't made changes in this gadget , but we need changes and want update in this gadget , and also need editing some CSS/JS pages. So I Request for Interface administratorship for pnbwikipedia

Ruslik ask me:

Please, start a local request first.

I done a local consensus here[1]

Then Ruslik ask me:

Please, enable 2FA.
Yes I enable 2FA on google
But when I tried 2FA on Meta it shows Permission error and states that You do not have permission to enable two-factor authentication, for the following reason:

The action you have requested is limited to users in one of the groups: Administrators, Interface administrators, Bureaucrats, Transwiki importers, Oversighters, Check users. What should I do ? --Abbas dhothar (talk) 11:49, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

@Abbas dhothar: What it's showing when you go to this page? (Also we can talk in hindi if you want?) ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:21, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
