Adding a babel[edit]

As you are applying for a global renamer right, would you mind adding a Babel code in the form ... {{#babel:xx|xx1|..|xxn}} to your user page. You may also wish review whether a soft redirect is still appropriate. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:07, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Yes, excellent idea. I will update accordingly. –xeno 12:53, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Global renamer[edit]

Hi Xeno. Just wanted to inform you that Matanya added you to the global renamer user group today, thus you are now able to globally rename accounts via Special:GlobalRenameUser. Good luck and if you ever have any questions, do not hesitate to ask of course! Trijnsteltalk 16:28, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

I've seen you already used the tool, though I figured this note couldn't hurt. Face-smile.svg
Thanks for the note! Yes, the tool seems to be in good working order =). Best regards, –xeno 17:03, 4 September 2014 (UTC)



Hi! Sorry for my stupidness, but could you tell, what I really need to do?

  1. I have to make 3 requests in this page (as local bureaucrats can't do this anymore, right?) with request to usurp those accounts (or rename them to some other?)?
  2. Make a new request to globally rename my username?

--Edgars2007 (talk) 15:50, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

DerHexer declined your request because several usurpations need to be carried out first, so you'll have to file those usurp requests, I suppose. You can still engage local processes where necessary, like hu:WP:USURP and en:WP:USURP and bureaucrats will review for compliance with local usurp procedures and refer to Stewards as necessary. There are actually 9 accounts that would need to be overcome before you can be renamed to Edgars. –xeno 18:10, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Mailing list for global renamers[edit]

Dear global renamer,

We have created a mailing list for us to allow easy communication. Please subscribe here and send me or Trijnstel an email to confirm it is you requesting it. Additionally, you might be interested to know of the existance of the #wikimedia-renameconnect IRC channel where you are welcome to join. Should you have any questions, feel free to use my talk page.

Cordially, Savhñ 15:07, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Good-bye, Xeno! :([edit]

I have to leave the entire Wikimedia project and delete my global account, because I have to say "Good-bye!" to you Xeno and done editing across the English Wikipedia more than long enough. You'll see me go this time, no worries! --Allen (talk to me! / ctrb / E-mail me) 01:29, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

Xeno 2 account will be renamed[edit]

04:15, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Hi Keegan (WMF), I have merged the meta "Xeno 2" account to the enwiki one. Hopefully this will prevent the renaming of my alt account mentioned above. Best regards, –xeno 14:18, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Renaming Globally username[edit]

Hi Xeno! I want to change my username from عثمان خان شاہ to UsmanKhan , so please change it --UsmanKhan (talk) 16:08, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

  • Yes check.svg Done; sorry for the delay –xeno 18:33, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
I am trying to login But its does not work. How much time renaming will take?-- 20:28, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
It should tell you that the account rename is still in process. Check CentralAuth on the renamed account. Vernon Schieck (talk) 20:30, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
It does not show see here-- 20:39, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
Plz Xeno check it is not logging in, many hours ago but still it shows "Login error:Your account is currently being renamed or merged".-- 22:38, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
Now it is working , Thanks--UsmanKhann (talk) 19:09, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Xeno?[edit]

What should I do to Contribute to wikimedia do you have any tips for me to Provide incentive for me to get to edit civilly to wikimedia. !GGG (talk) 04:27, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi !GGG, I see you've made lots of contributions on and pt.wq, so I'd suggest keeping that up. If you mean how to contribute to this local Wiki (metawiki), then I might suggest some translation work but I'm probably not the best person to ask. –xeno 12:54, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your suggestion from now on I will start to pay more attention as well as my experience will be for as long as you project. --!GGG (talk) 13:35, 26 May 2015 (UTC)


Hi Xeno, as our past practice, using English suffix "(usurped)" will be fine. --Kegns 01:49, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your help on this Kegns. –xeno 14:55, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Global Rename[edit]

Hi, will you look at my request. Target user's edit count is zero and is not responding to Usurpation request, but still i have to wait for a month. Can you please do it now ? Hitch Hicking Across Sahara (talk) 00:04, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

In order to give people time to reply, requests in general are held for one month. Only if it was to usurp an enwiki account could I help you do this faster, unfortunately. Maybe a dewiki bureaucrat who is also a global renamer can help you do it faster, but perhaps it's better to just wait for the hold period to complete. –xeno 11:53, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

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)
