Holding this until 15 Sept when I will be able (by policy) to manually fix the individual project conflicts. Ajraddatz (talk) 16:05, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
OK, although I'm not sure if the wait is needed here, since there are no individual project conflicts that need to be fixed when you rename "SMAUG" to "SMAUG (vanha)". And after that there is no SUL account matching the name "SMAUG" (correct me if I'm wrong), so the ElmA → SMAUG rename will be possible. I know that by the end of this process there will be 18 commonswiki edits and 2 metawiki edits which will belong to the "SMAUG (vanha)", but that's not a problem by this user. –Ejs-80 17:34, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
As the user wants it as well, I have   done this. --MF-W 14:47, 1 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. –Ejs-80 15:09, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

They request a rename from CcifjToyo although Ccifjtoyo is his current username. Is the change to a camel-case name intended? Additionally, they could have registered a new name as their first edit was the rename request. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 08:58, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
I'm pretty confident the camel-case is intended, but I'll ask just to make sure (wouldn't want another request in two days...). They could have register a new name, but now they have 4 edits in main, and I think it would bother them to see it misspelled in the history of the article. Esprit Fugace (talk) 09:36, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
@DerHexer : As I thought, CamelCase intended. Best Regards, Esprit Fugace (talk) 09:56, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Collaborateur Luc Belot@global

There are some unattached accounts (Sulutil:CLB). Please ask them to choose another name--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 17:38, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Only two of them have ever contributed, on and on nl.wp. Is it really necessary ? If so, I'll transmit your request for more suitable login. Regards, Esprit Fugace (talk) 17:41, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
All of those accounts should be usurped then only we can globally rename. As of now you have to request individual project crats for usurpations, so it is better to choose another name--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 17:46, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
(ec) It's technically impossible to rename to an already taken account. Anyway, we could move these local accounts to another name so that Collaborateur Luc Belot can take CLB. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 17:47, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
@Collaborateur Luc Belot: please address the concerns above. Alternatively, we can close this as a stale request.  — billinghurst sDrewth 14:19, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
He didn't come for the last month : I think you can close it on your side, we'll keep it on fr.wp until (if) he come back. Esprit Fugace (talk) 15:49, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

I am confirm that 분당선M is my account please continue the rename process,--DangSunM (talk) 12:21, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
We can't merge accounts. Do you want DangSunM to be renamed to something else first? --MF-W 12:45, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
At least not yet. Hopefully, we can merge accounts in a few weeks. Otherwise, what MF said. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 13:40, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
Afaik, we will be able to attach local accounts to a global account then, but still not merge two (global) accounts in the way that is possible with mw:Extension:UserMerge. --MF-W 14:27, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
If nececcery, you can rename DangSunM to someting else. Or if it will being easier if i request few weeks after, I may need to requst again later I guess.--DangSunM (talk) 23:31, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
Well, you see... either you wait or get DangSunM renamed to something else now. From the viewpoint of stewards, it doesn't matter at all; the work needed is just some clicks anyway. --MF-W 15:05, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
No, this tool will merge global accounts. After SUL finalisation, all accounts will be global ones anyway. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 11:03, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
@분당선M: please confirm what you would like to happen, or we can close this as "withdrawn"  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:06, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Sorry to answer lately. I recently saw that my kowiki account was renamed. So i have to do the rename so please go ahead to rename as many wiki as you can. I thñk you can still use old way. Thanks.-- DangSunM (talk) 11:21, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Congrats for getting your account even more screwed up. --MF-W 12:28, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Not done for now. Please wait for the global account merge tool. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 15:52, 4 September 2014 (UTC)


Hi, indeed please visit Special:Mergeaccount first. Currently you have no global account; you can create one there, then once you have it, renaming you on all projects is much easier. --MF-W 19:32, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Should I visit Special:Mergeaccount for both accounts? I have local accounts at many wikis, with both names (never both names on the same wiki). Jérôme (talk) 19:38, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
So you own all of these accounts: [5] & [6]? --MF-W 19:42, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I was correcting interwikis links at a time. I just spent one hour making sure they are all associated to the same e-mail address and all use the same password (I think this is a criterion to unify). Jérôme (talk) 19:46, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
I see. It is indeed best if password & e-mail are the same (though unifying is also possible if only one of them matches).
Your case is a bit complicated because you already have 30 accounts at the desired username, but the 11 accounts at the other username have made much more edits. And unfortunately there isn't a tool to merge accounts with different names yet (even though that is planned for an unknown time in the future). I'd recommend you to do the following:
  1. Unify Cæruleum. Whether you unify Jborme is a matter of choice, since that account is going to be gone anyway in the end. However if you unify it too, you have the advantage that it is immediately clear that you own all of the accounts who are still named Jborme.
  2. Request local renames of the Jborme accounts to Cæruleum on the 11 wikis where you edited with Jborme. You have to make 11 separate requests, but you can wait with some or all until 15 September, for when it is announced that bureaucrats will lose the right to rename, and then a steward can fulfill all the renames. [You can however be sure that a request to the bureaucrats on some wikis will be fulfilled very quickly, far before 15 September. E.g. on enwiki and meta, and probably frwiki as well]. --MF-W 20:04, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

The user is handling this, as seen by the creating of the global account Cæruleum & rename requests on local wikis. --MF-W 16:09, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Are you ru:User:Runar? Please visit ru:Special:Mergeaccount first. --MF-W 17:17, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
(ec) Not done. There are more users with “Runar” as their username and you can only usurp a complete account (and probably only if it has no edits at all, that's currently under discussion). This is a request page for global renames for which the requested account must be empty. Please choose a fresh username. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 17:19, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Sorry to make you wait, but I'll leave this for SUL finalisation. The last edits by that account were within the last year, so I'd like to give the user a chance to select a new name as he will have with finalisation. If you'd like to leave him a message requesting him to change the name of his account, I can act on the feedback that he gives. Thanks, Ajraddatz (talk) 21:10, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
Would the user need to take any action beyond consenting on his talk page to a rename ? —Waldhorn (talk) 00:06, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
No. Just ping me or put another request here if he replies. If he is OK with a name change (and you can explain to him that his name will be changed anyway, but please do so nicely!), then I can do it so long as he provides a new username. Ajraddatz (talk) 00:09, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
I've left him a friendly message and will see how he replies. Thanks again. —Waldhorn (talk) 00:57, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Not done; cross-wiki issues and suspected sockpuppety. Ajraddatz (talk) 22:26, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: Why is this an issue? FuzzyDiceTalk 22:29, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
Ajraddatz: I've heard there were issues in the past, but as far as I am aware of the user is currently trying to regain trust and thus does not make use of any sock puppets anymore. Am I mistaken and new issues do indeed exist? Vogone (talk) 22:44, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
No, new issues aren't present (I've discussed this with the user). Regardless though we shouldn't be renaming people on a weekly basis, so I've advised them to come back in a few months if they still want a rename. Ajraddatz (talk) 22:45, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
I would concur with the decline; the user was just renamed last week. --Rschen7754 03:31, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
Understood. If I want a rename then it looks like I'll have to come back in a few months. FuzzyDiceTalk 03:39, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

眞弓 英和@jawiki

Done. Please login with your new username :) Ajraddatz (talk) 03:49, 9 September 2014 (UTC)


Just to understand better: You want us to rename Julyo@eswiki to JulyoES@eswiki but to keep Julyo@global where it is, right? Currently, we don't do local userpations but only renames of global accounts. You still can ask crats on eswiki whether they usurp this local account. Otherwise, you can wait for SUL finalisation where this account will be automatically, in case of need forcibly renamed or ask them whether they want to choose a new name earlier. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 08:49, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
I have usurped the "Julyo" account on eswiki, releasing it for SUL, as an eswiki bureaucrat. Is that all you required? Savhñ 16:54, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
That is all that I have required; I want to keep Julyo@global right where it is. Julyo (talk) 21:56, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Lucapaz1000 was my old username, i have to do? --Luca Esposito (talk) 13:10, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
If that is so, then unfortunately we can't globally rename because of the existing accounts, see Special:CentralAuth/Lucapaz1000. Should you wish to have these accounts unified into your global account, you should request local bureaucrats to do so. Alternatively, we can also globally usurp the Lucapaz1000 nick, but then these accounts will remain unattached. Savhñ 13:53, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
If you can do it, fine by me.--Luca Esposito (talk) 14:03, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

DennyTemp@multiple projects

  Done vi.wikibooks by Savh - the other two projects have active crats. I'd advice you to contact them (see this list) or, when it's not possible, wait until the accounts are automatically renamed as part of the SUL unification. Until then we can't do much I'm afraid. Trijnsteltalk 20:14, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Ah, I did that already, on tr.wp, but it was denied. I will try on de.books too. Let's see if they agree. I am trying to unify my account for years now! :) When I read the announcement, I thought it would finally be possible. Well, let's wait then. --denny (talk) 20:46, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
On the 15th stewards will take over local usurpations as well, so we can complete it then. Ajraddatz (talk) 21:13, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Yay! I can sure wait that long :) I've waited for more than two years. Thanks for clarifying the timeline. --denny (talk) 21:49, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Sorry to hijack this request, but have we made decisions on whether local usurpation policies should be followed or not? --MF-W 22:01, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Chanderforyou@multiple projects

Done Wikidata. Rename on loginwiki, tewiki, simplewiki, enwikisource and eswiki probably not necessary, as the account has no edits there. Vogone (talk) 21:15, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Usurp done on eswiki as a local 'crat. Released the accounts on tenwiki (despite the wiki being locked) and renamed and usurped on hiwiki. Please access d:Special:MergeAccount and hi:Special:MergeAccount to unify your SUL account. Usurps and eventual renames on, en.wikisource, and should currently be handled by local bureaucrats. Renaming on meta & loginwiki is not necessary, renaming on should also be handled by local bureaucrats. Savhñ 21:32, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
re: meta: it's possible the user wishes to retain their meta registration date, which is why I included it. –xeno 11:38, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
When someone gets renamed globally and has 0 edits on Meta with the old name, such a rename is useless and not done by meta bureaucrats. --MF-W 14:39, 12 September 2014 (UTC)


Done, because of error with original rename being too similar to Fuzzydice. Please ensure that your userpage lists the change. Ajraddatz (talk) 23:42, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
Did AntiSpoof prevent creations of new accounts because "Fuzzydice" exists? Otherwise, this was a useless rename because Fuzzydice has one edit from 2006 only. --MF-W 14:41, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Not that I know of, as the global rename got all the attached accounts. Between this issue, the relation to FuzzyBot and the repeat requests by the user for a rename I still think that this was the best solution, though you are free to disagree. Ajraddatz (talk) 16:03, 12 September 2014 (UTC)



I've engaged a friend to became a new member of Wikimedia movement and he has a local account in :ca. Even if he tried to make it global (and I helped him), We found out that his name, (at least in Commons is not in use) is taken de.wictionary and maybe other projects. He has posted This in his local discussion page to assure he wants to make the rename. Is it possible?

I advise your friend to choose a different name and request a global rename. Ruslik (talk) 17:12, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
This is ok? I believe he only has activated the :ca account, so this should be rename :ca's Satsuma into "TaronjaSatsuma" and then make the account global.--Coentor (talk) 18:04, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
@Coentor: Could you please let your friend confirm he wants the name "TaronjaSatsuma"? After that happened, we could proceed with this request. Vogone (talk) 19:51, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
If I understand it correctly, Coentor/Ruslik, he'd simply like to have his account renamed to "TaronjaSatsuma" (No SUL, no local accounts, so should be okay). We can either rename globally, or a ca.wikipedia 'crat could do so locally. Savhñ 19:52, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

I Will. Basically, Mr. Satsuma/TaronjaSatsuma wants a global account with his nick, but he registered locally. If "Satsuma" is taken in other wikis, then he wants to change his name in order to get a global one.--Coentor (talk) 20:00, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Well, usurping would be an option, though globally renaming is currently an easier process. However, with SUL finalisation approaching, he will - as owner of the SUL account - become the unique owner of the nick Satsuma. It depends on whether he wishes to wait a while, go through the usurpation process or be renamed globally. Savhñ 20:05, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
New diff for the new username. As a local 'crat it is fine to me to do it locally or globally, but I think it is better to complete this request here. --Vriullop (talk) 09:29, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
Considering that, I have handled this request. Satsuma has been globally renamed to TaronjaSatsuma. Savhñ 09:47, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Vicenç for the diff.--Coentor (talk) 10:08, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

@Martellodifiume, the account Martello exists on various other wikis, and has contributed with 22 edits to en.wikisource, which means usurping should be avoided. Could you choose a different nick, preferably without any usage? You can use this tool to find that out. Please file a new request indicating your desired nick. Savhñ 19:35, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Reason: SUL finalisation. I got told last week to come back this week, as then Stewards would have gotten local usurpation rights. These are the last two accounts I need to usurp to finally have SUL! (Been trying for a while). Thanks! --denny (talk) 15:02, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

  Done As target account in commons has no edits during years, it was usurped. And global renaming is done.--Anatoliy (talk) 21:49, 17 September 2014 (UTC)


Unfortunately no, we cannot usurp an account with over 7000 edits. I don't consider Ðavide to be appropiate either, considering the simmilarity to Davide and the confusion that might arise due to the special character used. Savhñ 23:35, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
This was exactly the reason for which I chose Ðavide; Ð is not a special character in a lot of country and I can not see problems of misunderstanding if the other user is inactive.. Anyway does exist limits over which a name can not be usurped? I am finishing the alternative solutions! --Martellodifiume (talk) 00:13, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
Savh, because of language differences (German umlauts, Chinese symbols, etc.) and the inherently low number of short usernames, we've generally entertained these kinds of variants so long as the user agrees not to impersonate the other user. What's your opinion? MBisanz talk 01:58, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
Agree with the special symbols - which can be language dependant indeed - but the Ð is not used at all in Italian, and might therefore lead to confusion on I'd prefer to have an 'crat giving his view. Savhñ 06:24, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
I agree but the same page you linked says that is used in Venetian (that is my native language in addition to Italian), this is the reason I thought about it (I'm Ðavide in FB too). Let me know! :) --Martellodifiume (talk) 11:56, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
The Đ instead of D is explicitly listed on mw:Extension:AntiSpoof as a name variation that will be prevented from creating. It would be unappropriate to rename to a name which cannot be registered (see also bugzilla:70380). --MF-W 15:54, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
Good to know, although with this policy we'll have user name longer and longer. BTW what about "Gogol"? Should not be so problematic as the previous one --Martellodifiume (talk) 22:19, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
"There are unattached accounts using the requested username." –xeno 01:52, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

  1. Done on eswiki, account released for SUL.
  2. Renamed on commons to Galious.
  3. Informed target user on of usurpation. @Xeno, what is the suggested holding time?
Please create a global account to prevent automatic renaming with sul finalisation. To do this, access Special:MergeAccount on all projects on which you currently have a local account. Savhñ 17:46, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
0 edits and created 8 years ago so I do not think it needs to be held for more than 24-48 hours, we usually process requests more speedily in case of SUL unification. –xeno 20:46, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

How about enwiki? Ruslik (talk) 12:22, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
I started a request on enwiki initially (link), and they advised I'd need to come here to usurp the de and ru accounts. If you can handle the en usurp as well then please do.
