Instructions edit

SUL finalization edit

If you are requesting a merge of a global account with one or more unconnected local accounts as part of finalizing your single unified login (SUL) username, please specify which wikis and accounts you want to merge into your global account. These accounts were typically be named "account name~wikiname". Please note that we can only merge a local account into a global account when the global account has no edits on the same wiki as the local account.

How to add an entry here edit

To add an entry, please copy and paste the text below into the appropriate section.

=== Oldname ===
|status = <!--don't change this line-->
|domain = global
|Oldname =
|Newname =
|reason = (your remarks here)


For global rename requests:

=== Example ===
|status     = <!--don't change this line-->
|domain     = global
|Oldname    = Example
|Newname    = Foo
|reason     = your remarks here

Making a request for your own account edit

For changing your username on one wiki:

Please include the following information in your request:

  • the old username,
  • the new username,
  • please sign ~~~~ request with your account for a simple move (first section), or sign this request with both the originating and the target accounts if you are requesting a merge (second section).

If anything is missing from your request, a steward will request more information. This helps ensure that you are requesting a rename for your own account. Please check before posting your request that the username you want is available. You can test that by going to the (new) user page and looking into the sidebar. If there is a link to user contributions, the account already exists, or check via Special:CentralAuth.

Private requests edit

Account renames are not private, once renamed many links from the old username to the new username will be permanently made. The reason submitted on the rename form (Special:GlobalRenameRequest) is private, and only visible by the renamers. Additional information that needs to be made in private may be sent using this direct wiki-email interface while logged-in.

Simple rename requests edit

If your rename request is simple and does not involve usurpation of an existing account or other SUL issues, you have two options:

  1. Use the request form at Special:GlobalRenameRequest; or
  2. Submit the request below in this section.

Please use this tool to check if the username is taken before filing a request. edit

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications edit

Please add new requests at the end of the section. Sections should be titled your username and requests should be signed by the requesting user.
Please note: Per standard procedure, accounts with valid edits are not usurped, and the target account must be notified by renamer at least one month before usurpation.

Abecesel edit

What illusions have we made? We simply said that the identity of the person making the request could not be guaranteed, that's all, we work according to the policies, for the protection of users and the project and we cannot do favors or exceptions for anyone. We told you to contact T&S to recover the account and you didn't want! If we cannot confirm who is making the requests, we cannot process them, it would have been easier to follow the suggestions rather of making useless arguments. Having said that, I will be looking at the various requests for vanish shortly, thanks for your contributions. --Superpes15 (talk) 16:34, 1 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Plumbum208, Ternarius, and Yger: First of all, since the user is currently blocked (with also a log of blocks) on svwiki, I'll ping the blocking admin to know if there are some oppositions to the vanish, or if this could be a problem for them. I also want to remind that the vanish is a "courtesy vanish", and not a mandatory procedure or a right. --Superpes15 (talk) 16:41, 1 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Plumbum208, Ternarius, and Yger: Hello, I'm sorry to ping you again, but we are waiting for your reply to proceed. Please let us know if you have some concerns about this request for vanish. Thanks :) Superpes15 (talk) 22:52, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am not familiar with this type of request, so do not know how to look at this request Yger (talk) 02:12, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Superpes15 The application has been pending for over a month. Can you treat? Thank you! Neriah - 💬 - 06:30, 22 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm so sorry, Superpes15 for this late answer, I must have missed your pings entiredly. We have had a lot of problems with Abecesel in the past, complicated by the fact that the user compleatly refuses to discuss their behaviour. Instead Abecesel has written and mailed complaints to many of Swedish Wikipedia's admins, including me, both on Swedish Wikipedia and here on Meta. It has stopped now, but I have a concern that Abecesel will start again, if they are given a new, not immediately recognizable name. So no, I'm not overly happy about Abcesels request. / Ternarius (talk) 00:39, 11 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I contributed ~33 thousand to the project. Only ~100 of them are on the Swedish Wikipedia and most of these contributions were in answer to discussions about me. The first blocking was because I was using the move tool to create redirects from long names to articles. I used a translation tool because the messages from the discussions on this topic are in Swedish. You could see that I made the same redirect-move contributions to other language Wikipedias. Your second and final block was because I didn't want to archive my message page. At that time, I was contributing to undo vandalism globally using a rollback tool. I wanted to edit my message page on every other language Wikipedia. I explained to you that what I want to do is not to archive, I just want to make a navigation bar, and I gave examples from other Wikipedias. For example, when I want to archive there should be such a link: sv:användardiskussion:Abecesel/diskussionarkiv/2022/a. You can see the example on the Turkish Wikipedia: tr:Kullanıcı_mesaj:Abecesel/mesajarşivitr:Kullanıcı_mesaj:Abecesel/mesajarşivi/2022/a. The administrator User:EstrellaSuecia understood what I was saying and we kindly closed the issue. However, another user continued editing my message page. User:Ternarius has been wanting me blocked since the first block. Therefore, despite all my explanations, he accepted a complaint created by the user who edited my message page and he blocked me. I understand and respect the rules of the Swedish Wikipedia. However, these blocks were unnecessary. It should be noted that these blocks were given at a time when Turkey did not want Sweden in NATO. The concern mentioned above is unreasonable because I could always edit Swedish Wikipedia with a different user or IP address, I would never do such a thing. I created this title because I don't want to use my name rights on Wikipedia. --User:Abecesel 11:38, 15 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
