Steward requests/Username changes/2014-07


لطرش احمد الهاشمي@wikimedia projects does not have a bureaucrat

(List collapsed by me). Please read the edit notice (the text you see above the edit box when editing): "As of now, there is NO GLOBAL RENAME tool. The stewards must decline any request for username changes or usurpation on wikis that have active local bureaucrats". Please make individual requests for each wiki. Aditionally, you don't need to be renamed on wikis where you have 0 edits. --MF-W 18:37, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg: I need the same name in all Wikimedia project please for the future and you can except the active local bureaucrat in this page --لطرش احمد الهاشمي (talk) 18:41, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
Yes, but you need to remove those wikis from your list in order for stewards to process this. --Rschen7754 22:16, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
Hi @Rschen7754: I remove some projects in last week, but some project not accept my request from 3 month ago, please help me, if you can help me, and thanks--A.Latreche (talk) 19:59, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
Glancing through the list, I still see plenty of wikis listed that have active bureaucrats. --Rschen7754 04:27, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Hi @Rschen7754: yes but the wikis have bureaucrats and they did not accpet my request from 3 month ago because they don't know Arabic أحمدis not like احمد ,please help me, if you can help me and remove the wikis that have active bureaucrat in this list--A.Latreche (talk) 14:51, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
I cannot follow which wiki you are unable to get a rename on. Please list the specific projects without local bureaucrats that you need a rename on (i.e. where you actually have edits), and specify which wikis with local bureaucrats you are unable to get a rename on with links to your requests. Ajraddatz (talk) 19:05, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

Well, since nobody else is going to do this, I suppose I will.

We could do the rename on ja.wp, but there is an inactive de.wp account with edits under the new name. Thoughts? MBisanz talk 13:05, 15 March 2014 (UTC)
It was the first time for me to login Wikipedia, but I did not notice to registered with a wrong name. Please change my user name.
Because of the existing account on dewiki, the username Pilip is not available. You can place a new request below should you wish to be renamed to a different name. Savhñ 09:37, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

I do not understand what you mean by "i already change my username in nepali wikipedia to बिप्लब आनन्द". Ruslik (talk) 19:15, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
In past i requested to nepali wiki admin to change my username Biplabrjb to बिप्लब आनन्द,they changed it successfully but after the change i can't edit globally on Wikipedia through the user name :बिप्लब आनन्द,so now i want to change my user name बिप्लब आनन्द so i can edit globally through this particular username (बिप्लब आनन्द).Thanks
You'll need to first log in with बिप्लब आनन्द on ne.wikipedia to create a standard unified login (SUL) - after logging in, go to ne:Special:MergeAccount to ensure the creation of your SUL. After that, you will need to go to the appropriate pages on the left side of this page to request renames from Biplabrjb to बिप्लब आनन्द on en.wikipedia [2], commons.wikimedia [3], meta.wikimedia here and [4] to complete your SUL. Once you are done that, go back to Special:MergeAccount on newikipedia to add those accounts to your SUL. Please let me know if I can help more :) Ajraddatz (talk) 05:39, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks sir i have done it ..and i can now edit everywhere thanks .now would you please change my name or not ?
Unfortunately I can't change it. You'll need to go to each of the pages I linked to above to change your remaining accounts with edits, then once they have all been locally renamed, you will need to go to Special:MergeAccount on ne.wikipedia to add them to your SUL. Ajraddatz (talk) 19:01, 20 April 2014 (UTC)


Please, log in and confirm your request. Ruslik (talk) 11:47, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
I can log into en.wikipedia with New Username, but I cannot log into gu.wikipedia with New Username.
Here with old username. Ruslik (talk) 19:51, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I can log in here(meta.wikimedia) with my old username.
No, that edit was done with an IP address. Please log into with your old username. --Rschen7754 20:20, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
Logged in with my old username to confirm my request.
  Done Please log in with your new username. You can file a request for a rename on Meta at CHU. Once you have done that, you can go to Special:MergeAccount, merge your accounts together into a new unified login, and you will be done. --Rschen7754 03:09, 2 July 2014 (UTC)


Have you tried to contact the brwiki bureaucrat? Alternatively, by the way, you can take "Herzeleid" as a global account (since it doesn't exist yet) once you have more edits than the frwiki user (ca. 30), who is inactive since 2008. --MF-W 19:07, 22 June 2014 (UTC)


Before you made the rename request you had zero contributions. Now you have one. We do not rename accounts with zero contributions. Just forget about it. Ruslik (talk) 16:59, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

  Not done Global rename is not possible as you have been already renamed on enwiki. Please, ask bureaucrats locally on all projects where you have contributions. Ruslik (talk) 16:18, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps English Wikipedia bureaucrats should be made aware not to rename users who have SUL accounts locally and instead direct them to this page so they can be renamed on all wikis in one go. odder (talk) 12:41, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
@Odder: en:WP:BN#Global renames are now active. --Glaisher (talk) 12:44, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

Eladk is already a name in use. We can't rename to this name. Matanya (talk) 11:30, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
I quote from en:Wikipedia:Changing username/Usurpations: "The account you want to usurp should have no edits or significant log entries to qualify for usurpation (though rare exceptions are made in some circumstances, such as to resolve SUL conflicts). It can not be done here? • EladTalk to me :) • 11:49, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
No, stewards can't technically rename globally when there are local conflicting accounts. You will need the local 'crats usurp first, and then the global renaming can take place. Matanya (talk) 13:09, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
  Not done --Rschen7754 17:25, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
@Eladkrauz: Please have the account usurped on plwiki and (@Matanya: Can't you do this?), explicitally stating you do not wish to be renamed to that account yet. Once this is done, please post a note here again. Should you need any help, feel free to contact me on my talk page. Savhñ 17:38, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Done. Local accounts usurped by very kind bureaucrats, you have been globally renamed to Eladk. Savhñ 18:11, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Personally, I think the concern of that user is ridiculous, and you should not worry about that. With that being said, if you still want a rename, we will grant it, but this will probably be your last rename. --Rschen7754 05:51, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
