Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat/Archives/2007-10

Rename Jeff G. en to Jeff G. (usurpation)

I request that User:Jeff G. en on Meta be changed to User:Jeff G.:

Thank you!   — Jeff G. en (talk|contribs) 00:30, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

P.S. I posted here per the note near the top of Requests for username changes using the exact format used on that page. I have the following user pages with the same name as the one I wish to usurp here: en:User:Jeff G., commons:User:Jeff G., de:User:Jeff G., and simple:User:Jeff G. Please let me know if there is anything else I should do or stop doing. Thanks!   — Jeff G. en (talk|contribs) 00:30, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

I think you should have informed him, or ask for agreement, usurpation without information shouldn't happen imho. I don't think this request should be proceeded until that. --Aphaia 06:58, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
Thank you for pointing that out, I am new to usurpation. I have now asked on that user's user talk page in section User talk:Jeff G.#User_Account_Name, and emailed a pointer to that section.   — Jeff G. en (talk|contribs) 09:53, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, let's see what happen next ... I suppose one week is enough to make a decision, either go ahead or decline. --Aphaia 10:29, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Re-sent e-mail, just to make sure he got it, now let's wait for 2 weeks. --.anaconda 11:35, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Ok, we have now waited for 2 weeks.   — Jeff G. en (talk|contribs) 17:40, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Carried out as follows... Usurp:

  • The user "Jeff G." has been renamed to "Jeff G. (usurped)"
  • The page User talk:Jeff G. has been moved to User talk:Jeff G. (usurped).


  • The user "Jeff G. en" has been renamed to "Jeff G."
  • The page User:Jeff G. en has been moved to User:Jeff G..
  • The page User talk:Jeff G. already exists and cannot be automatically overwritten.

Move talk:

  • The page "User talk:Jeff G. en" has been moved to "User talk:Jeff G."

To Jeff G:

  • Remember to check for links to the old title or double redirects.
  • Consider placing {{subst:dated soft redirect|"[[User talk:Jeff G. en]]"}} over the redirect, if it is unneeded.

As I have become somewhat of a public person in the upcoming Wikimedia Sweden I would like to change my name to "Joakim Larsson". /Grön 17:07, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

This guy keeps creating pages about video games. Not good for Meta. Warned, but has just ignored. Anonymous DissidentTalk 01:19, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
