Enlil Ninlil username[edit]

Hello, in March you renames my account from Enlil Ninlil2 to my current one, and said that someone else also had that username. I believe that account is also mine, the email might be sixofeight_borg@yahoo.com.au. If so then they can be merged or if you want to confirm it and send an email to the account. Let me know please.

Hi there. Accounts cannot currently be merged. However, you can use your preferred account name on any wiki with your regular login, and you are welcome to redirect your old account to your new one. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 22:01, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

Rename account[edit]

I received a message in french about a rename, looks like you're annoying a lot of people with these renames. I can't quite understand the reasons you listed in french as I've never signed up for the french wikipedia.
My account on the english seems to be intact while here on wikimedia I've lost a name that I rarely used.
What's the story?
How do I sign this message now?

Hi there. You now have one account that you can use everywhere. If you can log in with your username and password on the English Wikipedia, you should be able to do so here as well. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 22:01, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

User:AllyUnion[edit]

Hi,

I noticed my account merge was incorrectly done. My original username is en:User:AllyUnion. The following accounts I own and were renamed (they should have the same email address for all of them):

If you can please fix the attributions and delete the renamed accounts, I'd certainly appreciate it. Please let me know if there are any actions required on my end.

Thanks!

User unification: please unify single-user-login Hella and en Hella~enwiki to Hella[edit]

Deer Keegan,

I've always thought that these user names had been synchronized years ago ... but whatever happened, there are enough leads to show that my "International" User Hella should be the same in the English wikipedia which is now named Hella~enwiki.

It is not that urgent, but would you please be so nice and change that back. I'd prefer to have my (small number) of changes in the en.wikipedia currently attached to User:Hella~enwiki again attached to User:Hella.

Thanks, Hella (talk) 07:46, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Deletion of User Page[edit]

Hi Keegan, could you please telle me why my Commons user page "Djehouty" was deleted and shifted to "Djehouty~commonswiki"? The user talk page still exists. --Djehouty (talk) 10:51, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

@Djehouty: you likely had an unattached account, but it's of no matter now: you own and can use your username on all the projects, and abandon the ~commonswiki-named account. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 00:09, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Hello Keegan ,[edit]

I want to understand why my username Halyo , that i was registered first for it was given to somebody else , this is my family name and i am used to it .... i don't think that is legal what are you doing without asking me!!! this is rude . Thank you

Unfortunately, priorities had to be given and off-line use was not one of them. You can request a new name by visiting Special:GlobalRenameRequest on any wiki while logged in. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 00:11, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

User Wollmersdorfer renamed but not renamed?[edit]

Hi,

in my (or not my?) talk page talk:Wollmersdorfer~enwiki I found a message, that my account will be renamed. Also I remember that I got a mail about this. I than managed to have only one global account keeping the name Wollmersdorfer on all wikipedias, i. e. keep it, as it was. Also the link to rename shows Wollmersdorfer as the current name, and not Wollmersdorfer~enwiki. The talk page User_talk:Wollmersdorfer shows a message "this page has been deleted ..." and it appears as non existing if I use it e. g. in the signature. Also I tried to post this issue at Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical) but got filtered with Disallow; Filter description: Long-term pattern abuse. So I am running circels. Please help to solve this Gordian knot. I just want to keep the user name Wollmersdorfer, which is the same on all wikipedias with the same e-mail address. Thanks in advance. --Wollmersdorfer (talk) 09:39, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

@Wollmersdorfer: You likely had accounts that were unattached to your global one prior to the great renaming. You have the User:Hollmersdorfer account on all wikis and can log in with your usual credentials everywhere. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 00:06, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Good Job[edit]

You made a very good job

Thank you. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 00:13, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Opus27[edit]

Hi Keegan My account was renamed from Opus27 to Opus27~enwiki even though I own the domain www.opus27.com and have been that name on Wiki for decades. Can you please change it back? Thank you Pamela Copus, 2002

@Opus27~enwiki:Rename are undertaken by stewards and global renamers. Please pop over to SRUC and ask there.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:26, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Special:UsersWhoWillBeRenamed[edit]

Hi K. Does the link from specialpages to Special:UsersWhoWillBeRenamed need to exist further? It seems redundant now that we have well and truly migrated.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:24, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: Hi. I actually poked Legoktm about that very same thing a couple of days ago when you posted this. It'll be taken down in fairly short order. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 00:11, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
