User:Mikez --> User:Mike and User:Mike --> User:Mike-old

A long time ago, I failed to check whether my primary choice for username was available and so I used my secondary choice (Mikez). When I soon thereafter realized the error, I created the other one to prevent impersonations (this was way before one could [easily] rename users). I almost exclusively used the account "Mikez" here, so now I'd like to move this to "Mike" so that I can merge things under SUL. (I am a sysop on en:wikt and a bureaucrat on sv:wikt). I have made a a list of my accounts; I hope that is sufficient to prove ownership;) Thanks for your attention. \Mike(z) 19:57, 30 March 2008 (UTC) (And this edit I do from the superfluous account to confirm the above ;) Mike 20:02, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

But then I reread the instructions and I was supposed to leave a message and wait for a month only if the account was recently registered. In this case he registered a year before me but the only two edits concerned the sandbox. I'm not sure what, if anything, can be done in this case, but I was mainly thinking about the unified login when asking for this usurpation. Thank you! --Vlad 15:42, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

The reason is that I was blocked as an annon on lb.wikipedia under conditions which I'm currently appealing. My only contributions to meta have been in relation to this event. I today also create a second account on lb.wikipedia for this situation which I duly reported to the arbcom-l list to avert supsicion that I'm somehow acting as a sock puppet. The reason why I would like to have the blocking issue and my regular editing separated is for added security as lb.wikipedia is a very small community. As it currently is with my current account at meta talking about this issue, my anonymity is not assured. Note, the given IP is the one under which I was blocked.--Caranorn 13:52, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for your prompt reply, Majorly, but I do not want to delete my account! I'd like to change its username while keeping its history and edits. Isn't this the purpose of the requests in here? Or did I misunderstand? --Alif01 17:48, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
You cannot rename to a global account. You must have it deleted before you can be renamed to it. Majorly talk 17:51, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
You just to have to request to delete your global account after renaming you can re unify them again--Mardetanha talk 17:52, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Excuse me if I'm slow, but let me try to explain what I want to do: I want to keep my current global account which already has some of my accounts unified under it. What I want to change is my local account here on Meta so I can merge it with the others under the current global account; a process which can be done progressively as I am still prompted to verify other synonym accounts on other wikis (other أحمد's).
On the other hand, if I just delete the global account then I will have achieved nothing; because my account here on Meta won't be eligible for consolidation with the rest since it is different. Right?
--Alif01 18:04, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
  1. Request your global account be unlocked.
  2. Come back here and ask for a rename.
  3. Remerge your accounts.
You cannot merge into an already locked account. Majorly talk 18:11, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
But what makes my global account locked?
If my local name in Meta is changed now, won't it appear as eligible for consolidation?
Or is it that once the consolidation process has begun no further synonym local accounts are detected and listed?
Does this also mean that I will have to delete and recreate my global account each time I get one of my local accounts in other projects renamed and ready for consolidation? Am I better off waiting until I have renamed all of them? (eg. one more in a.wikisource but might take some time as it is taken but abandoned)
Even if this is indeed what you meant and is true, then changing my local name here in Meta won't be harmful for what I intend to do eventually.
Let me say again that I have only one global account. It is not synonym nor associated with my account here on Meta which I want renamed.
Pardon me, Majorly, but I couldn't find any documentation which explains this in detail or covers this scenario; Hence my confusion.
--Alif01 18:45, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Hi Alif, the problem is that local bureaucrats cannot rename accounts that are attached to a global account, or rename users to a name that is the same as a global account. When you create a global account, you "reserve" all instances of that name on all projects, preventing people other than yourself from creating accounts with that name and (unfortunately in some cases) bureaucrats from renaming accounts to that name. This issue has been reported to the developers as Bug #13507. For you to have accounts renamed to your global name, it is necessary for the global account to be deleted, which you can request at Steward requests/SUL requests. Once all the local renames you need are completed, you can recreate your global account. WjBscribe 18:54, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
Alif, at the top of this page, it states to rename all your accounts before you merge your accounts. The fact you merged made your account locked. You are better off having it unlocked by a Steward/Bureaucrat, and getting all your accounts renamed before locking it. 19:01, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

No mw:User:Maymay was registered to proceed contributing to this talk page and the project.

I myself am a user with more than 7000 edits and at present experience running sysop promotion procedure that gives me one more reason to desire to have my account globalised. I have already taken preemptive measures to getting this account successfully unified (already got it on Commons, English, Chinese, Spanish and Tagalog Wikipedia). Splitting the accounts will also be favourable to the local account holder, since under a new username s/he will be able to get a valid global username him/herself if s/he ever continues to contribute. I hope that my request will be acknowledged. Thank you in advance. Maymay bg 15:32, 21 July 2008 (UTC)

I do not agree, altough I have 3500 edits on the dutch wikipedia I still think this is a really big amount. Furthermore I am also active on the english wikipedia under an other username, because the name "Cumulus" was already taken over there. So my actual number of edits is even higher. Furthermore it is not fair to say I am inactive here. I am an active reader on this page and I do want to have my own nickname in case I want to react on something.Cumulus 21:56, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
