I want to usurp the following account

I own the account already but it is unattached. Auto-creation failed for some unexplicable reason, so I made a new account by hand (same password and e-mail). (Note: This could be a bug, but I would like to know if this is perhaps a known issue before I file a report.) --Prüm 19:21, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

I can delete your global account, so you can re-merge it. Ruslik 19:42, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
OK, I expect that would solve it. Has this happened before or could this be just a random glitch? --Prüm 22:31, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
  Done, please reunify. It happened before. Matanya 22:33, 2 June 2011 (UTC)
I tried to, but it won't work - the ar:wiki still does not appear on the list for attachment, all the others do. What should I do next? --Prüm 10:48, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
Try to merge from w:ar:Special:MergeAccount? Nemo 10:52, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
Exact same result. --Prüm 10:54, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
Even if you login into arwiki? Ruslik 12:53, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
Of course. I need to be logged in there to do the merging, ain't I? --Prüm 13:27, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
Have you seen "If these accounts do belong to you, you can finish the login unification process simply by typing the passwords for the other accounts here:" at any time? It's usually at the bottom of MergeAccount and stays there as long as at least one account is unattached. Right now you still have no unified accounts at all, though. -- Mentifisto 13:35, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
I dont't think so, but I'll give it a try. --Prüm 13:54, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
Yay, that did it, thanks a lot. I guess that hint would be a helpful addition to Help:Unified login. Since this seems to be a minor issue, I won't start a bug report. Cheers, --Prüm 14:16, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

My SUL account (user:Flyax)is unattached to nn.wiktionary. Could you please do something? --Flyax 07:16, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

Does the account on nn.wiktionary belong to you ? If it's the case, just use Special:MergeAccount, assuming that your password or your email address on nn.wiktionary is the same as on your SUL account. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 07:56, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
I have no account on nn.wiktionary. I try to log in there as Flyax and I cannot. --Flyax 07:59, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
Since the account had no edits and local crats are inactive I've usurped (renamed) the account - you can unify it now. -- Mentifisto 08:23, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
Thank you. --Flyax 11:19, 4 June 2011 (UTC)


Status:    Done

Please delete global account with no attachments after only attached account was usurped here.

I'm sure the usser account is mine, in fact it really does not exists, but it's a copy surged in when moving articles from wikibooks to wikiversity.
Unique editions in Wikiversity Equivalent in Wikibooks, where I can access without problem with SUL

infernet (SUL)

Status:    Not done

I want to usurp the following accounts, since I am trying to get a single unified login for my user "infernet". Spanish is my mother tongue, and I would like to make contributions in this language using a single login. The eswiki user has no contributions yet.

--Infernet 09:35, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

  Not done, the Spanish Wikipedia has local bureaucrats. You can make a local request on this page. Jafeluv 09:43, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

River01 (SUL)

Status:    Done

I ask for renaming my SUL River01 to Krivitsky MC. SUL Krivitsky MC was created by vandal on Russian Wikipedia after my request for renaming and then was blocked for editing with open proxy.

--Krivitsky MC (Создана 1 июня 2011 в 17:26) (source)

The local Russian bureacrat usurped vandal's local account on ruwiki.

18:07, 1 июня 2011 Obersachse (B) (обсуждение | вклад) переименовал «Участник:River01» в «Krivitsky MC» ‎ (количество правок — 1167, комментарий: Википедия:Запросы на переименование учётных записей)
18:06, 1 июня 2011 Obersachse (B) (обсуждение | вклад) переименовал «Участник:Krivitsky MC» в «--Krivitsky MC» ‎ (количество правок — 1, комментарий: вандализм)

But the SUL retained with the vandal. If renaming is impossible, I ask to delete SUL Krivitsky MC. River01 20:37, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

I deleted it (SUL accounts can't be renamed, only individually); try to recreate it now. -- Mentifisto 20:45, 7 June 2011 (UTC)
I recreated SUL! Thank you! Спасибо! Krivitsky MC 20:54, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

I want to usurp the following accounts. I hold the claim to the SUL of username Ekin. All of them have 0 (zero) edits and contributions.

--Ekin 10:19, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

  Done mswikt; others all have local bureaucrats that can perform the usurpation, please ask them. -- Mentifisto 10:39, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
Marked as done since no more actions from our part are needed. -- Dferg ☎ talk 09:43, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

I am SUL Galadriel and want to usurp those accounts with no contributions:

Thank you Galadriel 20:34, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

There are as well some more accounts with some minor edits but years ago:

What must be done to usurp those accounts? Galadriel 14:23, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Unfortunately, you would need to ask local crats since all of those projects have them. You can get a list by typing: Special:ListUsers/bureaucrat -- Mentifisto 20:40, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

I want to usurp the following accounts:

Thanks! --Carrousel 12:20, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

  Not done, all those projects have local bureaucrats. Please request usurpation locally instead. Jafeluv 08:21, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
I requested renaming on nl.wikipedia for Carrousel and Galadriel. Trijnstel 13:37, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

I want to usurp the following accounts. I hold the SUL of username Moises and my home wiki is ( All of them have 0 (zero) edits and contributions.

All the folllowing projects have bureaucrats, but I can't write the language nor understand the usurpation page


How can I do the username MoisesSUL request in those projects? --Moises 15:58, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Have you tried posting a request in English? Jafeluv 20:43, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

The problem with the projects with bureaucrats listed, is because I can't understand the idiomof this wikis, and I'm not able to arrive to the correct page to do the SUL request. There are many wikis, i.e. german, that ofer the same page in german version and in english vesion as a "lingua franca", but not all the wikis do. If there is an alternative solution, tell me and i'll try. Thanks. Moises 12:38, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

There's a handy list of pages where renaming can be requested here. If there's no specified page, you can contact a local bureaucrat on their talk page (see the "crats" link in your original list above). Most of them understand English just fine. Usurpation pages for the projects you listed:
Hope this helps. Jafeluv 12:01, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
There also this, like it says above to read before asking here. fr33kman 16:46, 21 May 2011 (UTC)
I've usurped Moises@eswikiversity since their bureaucrats went very inactive for years (I have proposed their demotion today). Regards/Saludos, -- Dferg ☎ talk 09:52, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
