Stewards cannot individually manage accounts at enWP, you will need to ask over at that site for that matter. — billinghurst sDrewth 04:09, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

I want to usurp the following accounts

That is a blocked single purpose vandalism/harrassment account registered under my user name by someone else in 2007. I don't know if there are Korean bureaucrats, but as I can't read Korean, I wouldn't know how to contact them. Thanks, Sandstein (talk) 07:20, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

There is active bureaucrats at ko.wikipedia and you can place your request here 위키백과:계정 이름 변경 요청 in English. -- Tegel (Talk) 07:32, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
How can I do that without revealing my IP, given that I can't log in on ko.wp with the account I want to usurp? Sandstein (talk) 16:39, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
I placed a request on ko.wikipedia for you. -- Tegel (Talk) 16:53, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

I was redirected here by a bureaucrat of I would like to rename my account to "Angelus", usurp the target name in all the wikis, and unify them. Because of in username usurpation policy, is not allowed usurpation to username linked to SUL account, I need to request the deletion of target user's SUL account first. It seems that this is an inactive account (with minor edits) since over a year, moreover 26 non-jawiki unattached accounts exist with this name (all inactive). Thank you. Best regards. --Angelus(talk) 16:19, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

I'm very sorry, but I'm afraid we cannot fulfil this request. The target user "Angelus" does make an occasional appearance, albeit last in 2011. Since he is not completely inactive, and has over 100 edits, he has the priority over the SUL name. You will have to ask him whether he would mind, and we cannot act until he answers, even if he doesn't for some time. Best wishes, PeterSymonds (talk) 16:24, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
First of all, most are minor edits, and it seems that the account is completely inactive since we already tried to contact him in talk (since 17 dec. 2011) and by email, but he did not respond. Please consider my request. Thank you. Best regards. --Angelus(talk) 16:32, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
Whether the edits are major or minor is irrelevant. Snowolf How can I help? 08:40, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
Ok, but it seems that the account (in is completely inactive, moreover also the unattached accounts with this name are inactive. I need the deletion of target user's SUL account. Please consider my request. Best regards. --Angelus(talk) 19:07, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but the answer is no. We will not do this for you unless Angelus@jawiki agrees. That is the end of it, and we cannot act otherwise. PeterSymonds (talk) 19:12, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
Imho policy is a bit pointless. --Vituzzu (talk) 19:25, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

I want to usurp the following accounts:

There are two edits from long ago, but I believe they are mine (registered with a different password, apparently). Dominic (talk) 20:29, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

Hello. The mail is activated on this account, so you should be able to recover it with this tool. Please tell me whether it worked or not. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:22, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
That that doesn't work and you don't care about the two edits, we can just move that account out of the way. MBisanz talk 17:02, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

I would like to rename my account to "Micax", and usurp the target name in all the wikis and unify them. Apparently, someone on has registered the username, but as far as I can see, hasn't done any edits more than a year after having done so. --Michael.Akinde (talk) 20:15, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

I sent him here. Given the inactivity of the user, I would be inclined to delete the SUL and then let an crat rename him to usurp the SUL account. MBisanz talk 22:37, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
If no one objects, I'll do this later today. MBisanz talk 20:20, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
  Done and rename done as a local crat. MBisanz talk 00:58, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
Many thanks for the help. Two questions, though: 1) can I get this account renamed also (apologies if that was unclear)? 2) I would like to create a SUL as well while I'm at it; how do I do that (since I - for obvious reasons - do not have the login info for the account)? --Michael.Akinde (talk) 08:28, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
This account only has the edits to this request, so you could just abandon it and log into Micax or you could request a Meta change at Meta:Changing username. To trigger the SUL, go to en:Special:MergeAccount. MBisanz talk 14:28, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
MergeAccount complains that the Login unification is not complete, due to the ja:wiki user. Or do I just ignore that? --Michael.Akinde (talk) 19:24, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
You can ignore if you are not planning to edit jawiki. Ruslik (talk) 10:50, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

I want my account on gu.wikisource to be usurped, because I can't log into it. It might actually be my account, but it seems to be broken or unattached. It might be related to this bug.

Hello, I'd like to usurp the user name Hex on the Greek Wikipedia. I filed a request there in September, but it appears from that page the local bureaucrat(s) haven't been active since July.

Thanks, — Hex (❝?!❞) 11:45, 9 October 2012 (UTC).

Hi. There are active bureaucrats on the Greek Wikipedia, so please fill a request on this page. Cordially, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 09:29, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
Quentin, please read what I said again. I already did that, as can be seen at the bottom of the page you linked to. The Greek bureaucrats appear to be AWOL. Thanks, — Hex (❝?!❞) 10:10, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
Reopening, will try to wake up the local 'crats. Snowolf How can I help? 08:39, 20 October 2012 (UTC) - Already done by Hex. Snowolf How can I help? 08:42, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
I see that Geraki is the only Greek crat who does renames. I would be inclined to grant this request if he doesn't respond to Hex in a week or so. MBisanz talk 22:39, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. — Hex (❝?!❞) 20:19, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
Geraki did it, thanks. — Hex (❝?!❞) 19:03, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
I close this request as   Not done then. :) Trijnsteltalk 19:05, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
