Confirmation link. --Diamant (talk) 18:03, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

  Done, since the local bureaucrats are inactive since at least early June 2013. Trijnsteltalk 18:14, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm from dewiki and I'm trying to usurp the following accounts:

--t34 06:53, 14 August 2013 (UTC), thank you!

Please see Index of pages where renaming can be requested; all three projects have active bureaucrats so the usurping needs to be requested locally. QuiteUnusual (talk) 07:52, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

I want to usurp this [1] account for SUL. Couldn't find the correct code for below template. --Eldarion (talk) 08:56, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

Please wait for the SUL finalization to move it away automatically; the wiki is locked anyway and you wouldn't be able to create a new account. --MF-W 16:40, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

  Done and   Not done. crwiki has been usurped. dewikinews has active bureaucrats, so you will have to ask locally. QuiteUnusual (talk) 14:21, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Hello. Please limit this account only to English wikipedia. I don't want SUL. Thank you. --Shervinsky (talk) 11:26, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

  Not done. I'm sorry, but that's not possible. In fact: we even start to finalize SUL soon. Trijnsteltalk 13:33, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi, please usurpate this account, so i can rename my account with his username. And, can you rename me here from Dani XXN to XXN, on all projects? Or i must go on each local wiki project to ask them for rename? Thx.
my global account --Dani XXN (talk) 12:14, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

I have deleted the global account XXN (I guess that is what you meant, not "usurpate").
At the moment, stewards can only rename accounts on projects without local bureaucrats. Where bureaucrats exist, they must be contacted on each project, see index of pages where renaming can be requested. However, a global rename tool will be introduced at an unknown date in the future. --MF-W 15:49, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
Thanks. One more question: a.t.m. its possible to merge(unify) two different accounts(2 usernames) on the same wiki project, and also merging contributions of both of them into one single log? --Dani XXN (talk) 20:26, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
No, I'm sorry, that's technically not possible. Trijnsteltalk 22:50, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

Can I request a name change for a global account here?

If so, I would like to request that my account be renamed to Cath sy'n hedfan. There are no accounts registered with that name as far as I can tell - I checked cywiki, enwiki, frwiki and centralauth here.

If not, please tell me where the right page is because I couldn't find anything more appropriate. Cathfolant (talk) 01:25, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

At the moment you have to request the rename on every project separately. The Stewards only action name changes for wikis that don't have active bureaucrats. The index of pages where renaming can be requested lists the pages to make the request. Or you can wait until SUL finalisation at which point a Steward can make a global name change in one step.

I see, thanks. Cathfolant (talk) 17:43, 24 August 2013 (UTC)
