--L 15:53, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

It appears zh-yue wikipedia has a local bureaucrat still, please place a request at zh-yue:Wikipedia:改用戶名 and give him some time to respond.
Russian Wikibooks done - No activity on the account since its creation in 2007, no email set. Kylu 16:11, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
thank you for ru.books. i have placed a request for zh.yue on the local request page on 12 sept: [1] in the past requests on this page have been answered quickly (on same day), but my request has got no reply (neither positive nor negative) until now. can you do something about it?
i have also made requests in a number of other projects. some with success, but many without any reaction:
  • mediawikiwiki: on sept 2 [2], local user has 16 edits, but all of them vandalism (blanking of pages).
  • eowiki: on sept 10 [3]
  • arwiki: on sept 1 [4]
  • nds-nlwiki: first crat sent me to second (and only other) crat, on second crats talk page some diskussion with another user, but no reaction from crat [5]
  • some more requests in the last days
You may want to consider just asking in that section, "Do you mind if the Stewards perform this rename?" ... if there's no response in a few weeks, they probably don't care. There's quite a few folks who take up the mantle of bureaucrat without understanding that it's little more than a new set of annoyances, I think. :) Kylu 16:24, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

I have found another account on a wiki without crat:

  Done the and - all you want 16:43, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Some more wikis without reaction from the local crat:

Any others, or can we archive this section? Kylu 12:15, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
I think the usurpation on nds-nl offended the local administrator, as he left a question about it. I'll abstain from the rest of these until the matter is cleared up, I think. There's plenty of other stewards, though. Kylu 04:13, 19 October 2010 (UTC)
@Kylu: Please check again: Erik Warmelink (also: ErikWarmelink) is not an admin. I asked both crats on the wiki, both they did not answer. Erik was the only on to answer: at first he talked in favour of a 4 year waiting time but than changed to "I am OK with the usurpation." see:
Does this clear up matters? --L
Correct on the non-adminness, but the sequence of events is that the question was posed after his being OK with the usurpation. Anyway, I'd rather get a response from him first, as lack of adminness doesn't make his opinion less valid. Kylu 11:06, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

Done at es.wikiversity since their bureaucrats does not respond to communications and are long time inactive. --dferg ☎ talk 23:14, 11 November 2010 (UTC)

I hold the SUL of username Drusetta and my home wiki is I want to usurp the account Drusetta on because it seems to be the only way to have it merged for global access. In fact, I registered once as Drusetta on Wikipedia EN without being aware that I was actually visiting pages in English. I have lost the password for that account, and I did not assign any e-mail address to that account. Now I would like it to be merged in my SUL, so here [[6]] I have been suggested to ask for its usurpation despite being its legal owner. Thanks a lot! --Drusetta 08:56, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

The following Accounts have been autocreated for my Bot account, but sulutil says, they were not merged. Please add it to global User PixelBot

--PixelBot 22:10, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

SULutil is being laggy this days. Trust only on what CentralAuth says. I can't see unnatached accounts at Special:CentralAuth/PixelBot. Notwithstanding please note that stewards can't merge local accounts (only unmerge them). Regards, -- Dferg ☎ talk 10:54, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
