I on other Wikipedias[edit]

This is to confirm that I am User:Law on Swedish Wikipedia, User:Ternarius on Commons, and User:Pinrut on English Wikipedia. / Ternarius 21:42, 20 April 2011 (UTC)Reply

After the above text was written, I have changed my user name on Swedish Wikipedia to User:Ternarius (which is now my global user name). Pinrut still exists on English Wikipedia, but I have abandon it, and there too use Ternarius. / Ternarius (talk) 09:19, 1 February 2016 (UTC)Reply

Global renamer right[edit]

Pundit has closed your nomination for global renamer right as successful, and applied that right. Please subscribe to mail:global-renamers and send me an email so I can add you on that mailing list. You also might wish to check out the irc channel #wikimedia-rename. Good luck. Trijnsteltalk 15:05, 1 October 2014 (UTC)Reply

Thanks a lot! / Ternarius (talk) 21:49, 1 October 2014 (UTC)Reply

My email[edit]


My email asked you about the renaming Ikkefast~svrename to Knubbsäl, which was a consequence, apparently, of a previous renaming you had reverted on the 8th of october because the desired username was injurious in swedish. Céréales Killer rejected the current renaming request because the situation was not very clear. Could you please help the user find his way in our procedures? Thank you! Litlok (talk) 13:58, 16 October 2016 (UTC)Reply

Hi, Litlok:
I don't really know how to help the user. As I wrote in connection with my rename revert, I reverted the renaming since the chosen username was very vulgar in Swedish – we (=the users on Wikipedia in Swedish, where the user mainly was active) simply didn't want that name to show up in the contribution lists. I know, and sympatise with, that multiple renames is something we avoid here on meta. In this case however, I personally think that the user should have been allowed to rename his/her name, since it was forcible renamed. I am very reluctant, however, to act against Céréales Killer's descision. The only other existing alternative for the user is, as I see it, to register a new username and abandon the old, something I think is a pity, since the user has behaved well on Wikipedia in Swedish (if you don't count choosing an offensive username bad behavior).
Best regards / Ternarius (talk) 14:27, 16 October 2016 (UTC)Reply

No renaming between November 20 and November 27[edit]


You’re getting this because you’re a steward or global renamer. The Community Tech team are working on cross-wiki watchlists. We need to add a couple of fields to the localuser table in centralauth database. In order to be able to do this, we’d need to run a script that will get in the way of renaming users. Our apologies – we realize this is getting in the way of your work.

We ask that you do not rename anyone between 00:00 November 20 (UTC) and 00:00 November 27 (UTC).

(UTC means that if you live in the Americas, it will be on the evening or afternoon of November 19 when the script starts running, and if you live in Oceania or eastern Asia, it can be closer midday on November 27 before we can be sure the script is no longer running.)

Phabricator task.

If there are any problems related to this, or you have any questions, please write me on my talk page. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 19:42, 17 November 2016 (UTC)Reply

I understand. / Ternarius (talk) 20:11, 17 November 2016 (UTC)Reply

Byte av användarnamn[edit]


Jag vet inte riktigt hur jag ska gå tillväga för att byta användarnamn på Wikipedia men det stod något om att kontakta en "global renamer", något jag antar att du är. Jag skulle vara tacksom om du kan byta mitt användarnamn till EPIAC.

Tack på förhand.

Med vänlig hälsning AminC99 (talk) 23:19, 2 February 2017 (UTC)Reply

Hej, AminC99:
Rent formellt ansöker du om namnbyte antingen på Steward requests/Username changes eller, eftersom jag förstår att du talar svenska, på den svenska sidan, sv:Wikipedia:Byte av användarnamn. Nu har du emellertid kommit hit, så jag ska ta hand om din begäran här. Jag återkommer om resultatet.
Vänligen / Ternarius (talk) 05:24, 3 February 2017 (UTC)Reply
Done AminC99 nu bytt till EPIAC.
Vänligen / Ternarius (talk) 05:33, 3 February 2017 (UTC)Reply


Change my name to Puspa Revani.— The preceding unsigned comment was added by PusRev (talk) 23:23, 1 August 2021 (UTC)Reply

Normally request for username changes are filed on the Steward requests/Username changes page, but I have made an exception and changed your name. / Ternarius (talk) 21:41, 1 August 2021 (UTC)Reply

Thank you[edit]

Thanks for everything you do for the community, and thanks for the username change I really appreciate it. Maxxnite (talk) 21:16, 5 December 2021 (UTC)Reply

Thank you, yourself, Maxxnite! It's always nice to recieve appreciation for what one does. / Ternarius (talk) 01:53, 7 December 2021 (UTC)Reply

Your feedback is requested[edit]

Hello Ternarius, We are conducting a poll of global renamers and stewards regarding some future toolings related to some rename requests. Your feedback is requested at the poll on VRT WIKI. Best regards, — xaosflux Talk 00:18, 17 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Xaosflux: It seems like I cannot log on to the VRT WIKI with the same password I use for other Wikimedia and Wikipedia sites and applications. (I recieve the error message "Incorrect username or password entered" when I try to log on.) Is there any special rules concerning this particular application? / Ternarius (talk) 03:33, 17 January 2024 (UTC)Reply
thank you, we may follow up on the global renamers mailing list; it is a different account and it seems that not all renamers are provisioned there. — xaosflux Talk 10:17, 17 January 2024 (UTC)Reply


(Dear) Ternarius Please accept my apologies because you have been dragged into the discussion of the Bindingsteuer. By no means have you done anything wrong, nor have I in any of my posts implied (or tried to) any wrongdoing on your side. Your renaming was a consequence of my request, which was a consequence of Wikipedia asking me to do so. Also, I have not been banned on the German Wikipedia, only banned from contributing to the article I started, which has been renamed and moved for further editing by other people.

It was not my intention that someone could feel being pestered, my only intention was to write an article about a relevant tax topic in Germany and present it also in English in a 1:1 translation (to avoid quality issues by having it translated by people with no knowledge of the topic)

Once again, let me express my deepest apologies.
