Uncle Scrooge

I want to usurp the following accounts

The "Uncle Scrooge" accounts on the french and german wikipedias are not used, I would merge them with my global account (mainly used withe the eng. wikipedia) if possible.

  Not done. Sorry but both frwiki and dewiki have active bureaucrats. You will need to ask locally. See index of pages where renaming can be requested. Alternatively if you wait for SUL finalisation this will happen automatically. QuiteUnusual (talk) 18:34, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
  • True, I think I will wait. Thank you :)

I want to be global under my current username. Unfortunately another User:Bronstein exists on meta who might be myself. It would be nice if that can be figured out. --Bronstein13 (talk) 07:25, 23 August 2013 (UTC)

Yes, it exists and it is you. What is the problem? Ruslik (talk) 14:33, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
He asks if we can check whether he (Bronstein13) is Bronstein, though only CUs can check and this account is too old to check.
@Bronstein13: I advice you to request a rename on meta on Meta:Changing username‎ (this is for rename requests on other projects). Trijnsteltalk 18:48, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
No global requirement and will be automatically resolved with global unifications. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:07, 8 September 2013 (UTC)


Status:    Done


Please delete the empty global account, so that it is possible for the dewiki user to create a new one with his account. Thanks. -- 08:20, 8 September 2013 (UTC)

Please wait for global account unifications, and this problem will be resolved automatically. We are told that will be happening shortly. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:05, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
I have the fear, that the local account will be renamed in the context of the global unification, because a global account exists, and the local one are unattached. Is this page not for requesting deletion of empty global accounts in case another user will create a global account? 12:31, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
I also think that the account should be deleted. Ruslik (talk) 15:31, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
One week is over, without a reservation, please delete the global account "ChrisHamburg". Thanks. 18:17, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
  Done. Trijnsteltalk 18:31, 15 September 2013 (UTC)


Status:    Not done


Please remove this global account, as I have to not have the account global anymore, and I will probably create a new user (possibly the same user) and return there. 00:32, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

We do not delete global accounts in such circumstances. Ruslik (talk) 12:13, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure if I filled out the template correctly but I wanted to change my account from User:Nwjerseyliz>User:Liz. Liz isn't currently being used but appears to be "taken" so I'm asking that it be usurped. Right now I am User:Liz on en-wiki and I'd like to have that username here as well.

Thanks for considering my request. Nwjerseyliz (talk) 01:32, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

I want to be renamed to KWiki with the following account:

The request is only for the Bosnian Wikisource (I don't know what is the abbreviation for it; sorry). The reason is unification. I asked Demicx on the local level to rename me, but he said that user "KWiki" already exists although I never used my new name on BS Wikisource (as I can remember), so can you help me to solve this issue, please? Thank you in advance. P. S: I'm not familiar with these things, so: sorry once again if I made a mistake in the request. -- Kukac (talk) 22:28, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Please, confirm that account KWiki belongs to you. Ruslik (talk) 18:25, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

I request a name change for a global account. I want to be renamed to Shakti with the following account: Kâlî. My current username is Shakti on french Wikipedia, on Commons and on Wikidata. Thank you for helping. -- 14:44, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

You appear to have created two accounts as the user pages you have linked to on en.wikipedia look identical, so I'm not sure what you are requesting. In addition, we cannot rename accounts on the French Wikipedia, Commons or Wikidata as all these projects have bureaucrats. Can you explain better what you want please QuiteUnusual (talk) 14:56, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
I have created an account on en.wikipedia (username Kâlî) few years ago. I was thinking that renaming this account to username Shakti was possible but I couldn't do it so I linked Kâlî to Shakti. But when I want to log on en:wikipedia with Shakti, it doesn't work. It works only with Kâlî.
I also have an account (the main one) on fr.wikipedia (username Shakti) for ten years now. I would like to have a global account with username Shakti. So is it possible to rename my en:wikipedia account Kâlî to Shakti and delete Kâlî account? I don't want to rename my french account.
I hope you'll understand my request. Thank you for your help. 16:45, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi there, I'm from zhwiki and I'm trying to usurp the following accounts: (the jawiki has redirected its users to make usurpation requests here)

You can find on my home page a confirmation to these requests. p.s. It seems that the account on meta has been blocked indefinitely last year. I have no idea who the last user was or what he/she did with the account, but I'd appreciate it if you can help me unblock it once it has been usurped :P -- 16:29, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

mediawikiwiki   Done. --Krenair (talkcontribs) 22:53, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Done for jawiki as well. You can request it for Meta on Meta:Changing username. The block was on by the way, not on Meta, and it transferred to the renamed account. --MF-W 23:45, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

I want to usurp the following account

It looks like the account was created automatically, but I can't add it to SUL nor request a password reset ('There is no email address recorded for user "Anglerfisch".'). Confirmation of the request here -- 19:07, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

You need to request usurpations on Meta here. --MF-W 21:06, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
