Hi! As I explained here, I wanted to highlight the word «bot», so I requested a username change which was approved. I have made the change myself in es-wiki, so the next step now is the SUL account «MafoBot» deletion. Thank you! —Mafores - (eswiki) 23:58, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

My home wiki page = hu:User:Akela. Signed by Akela 20:08, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

  Usurped on ptwiki, but not on eswiki because they have local bureaucrats. Please see es:Wikipedia:Cambiar el nombre de usuario for the requests page. Best, PeterSymonds 20:16, 3 March 2011 (UTC)
OK, thanks. Akela 20:37, 3 March 2011 (UTC)

Similar request as above, for uk + zh Wikis. Signed: Akela 14:58, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Both have local bureaucrats that should help you out. See uk:Вікіпедія:Перейменування_користувачів and zh:Wikipedia:更改用户名. Cheers. --Rebel 15:28, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
Ok, I'll proceed there, thanks for the link info. Rgds. Akela 16:13, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

I want to be renamed to Sivanesh with the following accounts // I want to usurp the following accounts

There are four bureaucrats in Tamil Wikipedia, But none of them seem so understand the usurpation concept. I tried explaining but it not work with any of them. So please usurp the user name Sivanesh. Please understand the issue and dont reject on the basis that bureaucrats exist in Tamil wiki. --SivaneshR 12:21, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Hello! Since you say here, that the local bureaucrats don't know how to do the usurption, please get at least one of them to sign here and confirm the request. We usually don't do this at wikis with local buraucrats, but if they really don't know the how-to, then I want at least the ok from them to do the rename. Best, -Barras 12:35, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
I have requested one of the bureaucrats to reply here.--SivaneshR 12:54, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
Please grant Sivanesh his request. That user name has not been used for more than 5 years. Thank you.--Natkeeran 15:39, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
Okay, done then. I strongly urge your project to create a how-to guide for dealing with rename requests, so this problem doesn't arise in future. Best, PeterSymonds 15:41, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
Thanks everyone--SivaneshR 16:56, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Request the deletion (and/or block) of a global account.

Already renamed in my home wiki [1], here on meta [2], and in the main projects. Already unified as Larry Yuma [3]. If possible, I'll need rename on three one more project where bureaucrats are inactive (see also my -messy- requests here):

About wikis where I have minor edits, there's no problem in losing it. The main need is to 'archive' this account, possibly saving my edits in oldiwikisource and, in last instance too... but only if the workload in not too heavy. But in fact what I care the most is closing this old "Yuma" account, possibly blocking it. --Yuma 17:48, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

I've left a message in ThomasV's talk page. Hope that he responds. -- Dferg ☎ talk 23:01, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
That 'crat resigned to his rights, I've left a note to the other local crat. -- Màñü飆¹5 talk es 01:52, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
oldwikisource:User:Eclecticology was active on the 8th of this month performing a crat function, perhaps ask there? fr33kman 01:17, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Request the deletion of my global account. Thanks, --Sjg 23:25, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

Hello, why you want to delete your global account?
(Spanish) Hola, ¿por qué quieres borrar tu cuenta global? -- Màñü飆¹5 talk es 23:36, 5 March 2011 (UTC)
Abandono definitivamente Wikipedia en todos los idiomas. He dejado de creer en el proyecto y en quienes lo administran. Gracias. --Sjg 11:54, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
El borrado de la cuenta global lo que hace es borrar el SUL. Las cuentas siguen existiendo y no desaparecen. No hay modo alguno de eliminar o dar de baja cuentas de usuario. Símplemente deje de editar. El borrado de cuentas globales se efectúa en raras circunstancias y sólo en temas de cambios de nombre y similares. Dado que éste no es uno de ellos, esta petición queda   denegada. -- Dferg ☎ talk 12:03, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

How can I combine accounts

The following request is closed: done

Hello. I have a global account "user:vaqo" and "user:vago-az". But basically I'm working in AzViki (account "vago") and this is not a global account. How can I combine accounts or how I can make an account vago global? Best regards, Vago-az 09:55, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

You can not because their contributions overlap. Just stick to one account (Vago) and redirect another one to it. Ruslik 06:52, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
Correctly understood you? :

Request the rename (and/or block) of this global account for AlexandreMBM.

The Alexandre.mbm SUL account have zero edits in wikis all and I request the rename of it. I want to be AlexandreMBM only. This is a continuation of what we did in Steward requests/Username changes#Alexandre.mbm@ptwiki and Steward requests/Username changes#Alexandre.mbm@metawiki.

Confirmation link (diff):

Alexandre.mbm 01:56, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

  In progress... some will need local crat help. fr33kman 02:00, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
  Comment ptwiki, itwiki, metawiki, ptwikversity, ptwikibooks, wikisourceenwikisource all have crats so you have to ask them. fr33kman 02:28, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
I make <del> marks in the fr33kman's speaks above and in the mine. It's that clear now. I did or I will to make local requests for:
I will to use the diff link of this edition as confirmation link that Alexandre.mbm (who will speak there in some of these locales) is AlexandreMBM of this SUL account here. --AlexandreMBM 03:46, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
  In progress... AlexandreMBM is requesting rename of the local Alexandre.mbm accounts auto-recreated due to being logged in. Will global rename after local renames/detachments/etc. fr33kman 02:26, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
Marking as done. If you need further help with this, just ask a steward directly or post a new request here. Jafeluv 22:27, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Request the block of a global account. Hi. Please help me in my single account ( access (write) in Korczak 09:04, 11 March 2011 (UTC)

Can you clarify why you want your global account blocked? Ruslik 11:45, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm guessing he means he wants to usurp the pl.wikipedia Korczak account. Jafeluv 11:52, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
If you really want to usurp an existing account in plwiki, please, contact local crats here. Ruslik 20:35, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
I assume the SUL problem is now solved, so marking as   Not done. Jafeluv 19:01, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I want to usurp an account on The rename page there specifically directs me here.

Also, I made a request on in July; none of the crats have been active since. I'm not sure if stewards can usurp this one, though, since it has 5 edits.

Thanks! sonia 06:25, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

  Done both. Only minor edits from the vls account from 2006, and you have the greatest claim to the SUL account. Best, PeterSymonds (talk) 07:12, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Is it possible to change my home wiki here to I was in the midst of a username change and accidentally auto-created a new account at –CWenger 18:40, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes. We can delete your global account, after which you can unify the account again from Special:MergeAccount. However, please note that this will mean that all preferences (including passwords and email addresses) are reset to the values they had before you unified your account. Your contributions, logs etc. will of course be unchanged. Jafeluv 18:50, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
Sounds fine, let's go ahead and do that. Thanks. –CWenger 20:11, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
Done, you can now unify it again and it should set your most edited wiki as your home wiki. Jafeluv 20:13, 19 March 2011 (UTC)

I would like to request the usurpation following accounts in the Portuguese Wiki in order to facilitate a global account:

I have been told (see here) by user, Béria Lima (in Portuguese) that there are no active local bureaucrats in the Portuguese Wiki and I should seek Steward help here. Here is my unified login page (see here) indicating that the Portuguese account Cavallero belongs to someone else. (As for the Spanish Wiki - I am still seeking bureaucrats that maybe alble to help on their own Wiki). Here is my English language Wiki homepage. Thank you. --Cavallero 15:29, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

  Done. since the user had only one edit way in 2005, it was done. you may log in now with you SUL name and finish the global account process. Matanya 15:36, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
