@Meisam Alizadeh Afshar:, you requested a name ClassPedia. If you want your name to be SchoolPedia, you have to make another request. Cheers! Nadzik (talk) 22:54, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Request 65817

Hey, Hope you are doing great. I saw that you accepted request 65817 in which user is blocked for block evasion and we generally disallow requests from blocked users unless it's a serious privacy concern. Also saw that you are handling requests from every project that arrives in queue, for that I would like you to see this discussion (Subject: Improving the handling of requests) on handling request related to wikis that's not someone's homewiki. Thanks! ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:24, 17 July 2020 (UTC)

@1997kB: That is weird, I meant to reject this request, just as I did with this user's previous request. I must have made a mistake. I've read the discussion you've linked above, I will try not to interfere with requests from other projects before a few days pass. Cheers! Nadzik (talk) 09:44, 17 July 2020 (UTC)
  • Hey again, Another request which should be rejected because username is not only the issue but promotional editing too and in such cases they have to ensure admins at enwiki about that and then admin can rename them following a request at talk page.[1] ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:23, 19 July 2020 (UTC)

Sloppy handling

Hey again, In this request user is CU blocked and later locked. Could you please explain why you accepted it? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:31, 24 July 2020 (UTC)

The user is blocked. You said so yourself that "we generally disallow requests from blocked users unless it's a serious privacy concern.". Even tho user was blocked, we have no way of knowing whether user used his real name or what in this account. I choose to rename him due to that reason. Should I not do so in the future? Cheers! Nadzik (talk) 09:10, 24 July 2020 (UTC)
Unlike blocked accounts in general, it is not recommended to touch CU blocked accounts as much as possible. In most cases, their claims of privacy risk are a lie, unless their accounts were created long ago. In this case, this user is suspected to be Skiyomi, and this user has been banned because of block evasion on enwiki and account is locked. There were also comments from checkuser about this user[2]. If enwiki checkuser argues about your changes, you may be in trouble. It is a good idea to pay attention to these cases for yourself. --Sotiale (talk) 06:59, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
"we generally disallow requests from blocked users unless it's a serious privacy concern." — This doesn't happen that casually as you interpreted. Cases of serious privacy concern are discussed with other renamers on mailing list and if consensus then accepted (you can see list archive to get an idea). Otherwise in most cases of multiple accounts abuse these users lie just to make their sock puppet investigation page confusing. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:11, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

Notes in Queue

Hello, Just to know you that those notes we leave while accepting or rejecting request goes to requestee by email. So they should be informative enough to let the them know status of their request. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:32, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

Is it possible to remove a revision?

Hey,

At 8:42, 23 July 2020, you moved my username for me. Is there a way to remove that revision from my page history? I'm trying to distance myself from my old username.

Thanks
