Pdn@multiple (usurp. requests)

Status:    Not done

Hi... I'm an italian wikipedia user since 2005 .... I create in 2005 my italian account with the name Pdn (26,810 edit count)... now I would like to create an unified account.... but I have found two problem...:

  • I created also in 2005 an account in en.wikipedia... I used it only for a few time 9 years ago (1,098 edit count) to edit translated pages of italian pages that I created... the problem is that now I don't remember the password and the email address that I used to create the account... so I can't unify the en.wikipedia account... what can I do now?
  • the second problem is that the japanese account named Pdn (14 edit count) was created by someone in 2012 and used for just one week vandalizing some page so it was blocked by administrators... is it possible to usurpe this account?

Thanks in advance for your help and sorry for my bad english... --Pdn (talk) 17:55, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

The jawiki account will be usurped during SUL finalisation. Is it necessary to accelerate this process? Can you provide any (old) connection of Pdn@itwiki and Pdn@enwiki. I looked a while for it but couldn't find one easily. Maybe a sysadmin can help you in that case. Cheers, —DerHexer (Talk) 18:22, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
I've found these two diffs: on 8th December 2005 Pdn@enwiki corrected a typo, and two hours later Pdn@itwiki corrected the very same typo, which leads to the conclusion that they are the same user. - εΔω 08:39, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
That probably is sufficient evidence for a dev, but we stewards can't do that. Please ask a dev in #wikimedia-tech or through phabricator to reset the password of that account. Regarding, despite being indef blocked, I find it preferable to wait for SUL finalisation, when you will get that account automatically. Closing as not done. Savhñ 20:23, 1 January 2015 (UTC)


@Fastily: I've renamed both of the bots with 0 edits. Please notify the enwiki and ruwiki accounts and give them the chance to pick a new name, though I understand how futile it may be. After a month if they have not responded then I'll usurp them anyway. Thanks, Ajraddatz (talk) 23:53, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: you may proceed with the en request. The operator was blocked indefinitely and does not need to be notified. –xeno 16:39, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Why was you blocked on hewiki? Ruslik (talk) 11:02, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
I do not know, honestly, why the user was blocked on hewiki; has not done anything wrong. I had another user blocked in the past; But I would not conclude from one to the other. People change. Thanks in advance, JHistory (talk) 11:10, 25 December 2014 (UTC)

  Not done. It is technically impossible to have a nick starting with a lower-case letter. With kind regards, Savhñ 17:26, 2 January 2015 (UTC)


There are many other unattached accounts with the "Makro" username, which could be yours or someone else's, since they are pre-SUL. If you can proof they were yours, you can ask a dev to reset the password. The 0-edit accounts can be usurped, which I have done on commons, and I could do on all the other projects where the local account has 0 edits, but first try if you can access these accounts (possibly with an old password). With SUL finalisation, all unattached accounts will be moved away automatically. Savhñ 10:33, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

I have now tried to create the Ham II account on Wikidata and Mediawiki and am told it is too similar to the usernames Ham1i, Hamii, Harnil and Hæmli. Ham (talk) 14:36, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
Ham, the accounts are not global, so we cannot say by your meta account that you own the account. You need to log in to all of them locally, and post on your local userpages or talkpages while logged in. This need to be done for every single account your want to have renamed. Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 19:33, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for the clarification. Please see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. (I can't retrieve my Wikiquote password as my inbox hasn't received my lost password email; perhaps I created it with a long-forgotten address. I've only contributed a grand total of 6 edits to that project, the last of which was in 2009, so I don't mind it not being transferred to the global account.)

It sounds like an error with the tool to me; it should be recognizing your SUL and the unattached accounts shouldn't be interfering with it. Try talking to those devs, and in the mean time, we will look at usurping those unattached accounts. Ajraddatz (talk) 22:56, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks.   Thane   23:13, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
Ajraddatz, thank you for your help. I see that there are two remaining unattached accounts (of the nine that were unattached). However, I have found that the ACC tool is working for me now. So, if you want to stop the usurp process on those two because it is too difficult, feel free. They will be usurped in the great usurping to come. Or, if you would rather finish the consolidation, that would be awesome. Thanks,   Thane   00:25, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

If yes, please provide a confirmation edit logged into that account confirming it is you, and we will proceed to moving that account to Anbu. Savhñ 23:34, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

No, it isn't. Thank you so much. Anbu (talk) 23:52, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Good morning, I am global user gge except on pt.wikipedia and en.wikipedia. Is it possible to merge those two accounts to my global account? I can't do it myself because I don't remember the passwords. Thank you. Gge (talk) 11:05, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes, the account Neckbone on is mine. What should i do? --Neckbone (talk) 23:10, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
@Neckbone: If you can post a comment, on your talk page for instance, in which the commons account confirms it is you requesting the rename (and preferably the frwiki account as well if that belongs to you) we can go ahead with the renames, bringing all the accounts together under one SUL-free account. Savhñ 13:13, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
I'm sorry, but wikimedia and it.wikipedia are two different systems, I can't post in "Neckbone" talk page with the account "Distyll", or vice versa. If a way to make it exists, explains to me please, because I ignore it. --Neckbone (talk) 20:41, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
I am aware, but we need you to confirm that you own the Neckbone@commons account. For that, please log in to your Neckbone account on commons and post on c:User talk:Neckbone "I am requesting a rename on [[m:SRUC]] for my account Distyll". Savhñ 12:55, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

"The old username is used" is not really a reason for a request for rename. It appears that you are indefinitely blocked on a couple different Wikis. Can you please be more specific about why you are wanting to be renamed? Tiptoety talk 20:11, 4 October 2014 (UTC)
Be conflicts. Example: Italian Wikipedia is created by me, but I could not access!
The name GseSro less common and like best. I think that the origin User:Baffo is English, and i did not know this. If you can change the name, thank you.--GseSro (talk) 20:38, 4 October 2014 (UTC)
That is probably an instance of bugzilla:39996. They can be renamed away. --MF-W 21:40, 5 October 2014 (UTC)
@Baffo: please identify how you would like to proceed, otherwise we will close this request as inactive.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:29, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
Hello, if possible to proceed! I want change name globally in GseSro: currently, I am only and these 10 days have little time to translate, for this reason I'm not writing about Meta, Wikiquote, etc. In addition my computer is broken! GseSro (talk) 16:54, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

The Baffo account has global blocks, you have two accounts operating, I don't see that we can undertake this request as it is currently requested. The only means that I can see to progress is to move Baffo account with blocks attached to a completely new name, and then merge any accounts to it when the merge tool is available. As this is a different approach, I would ask that you read the above commentary, and submit a new request with the new information as determined.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:17, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Sorry for the delay, but I've only read today the discussion. Meanwhile I created account User:GseSro and work with it. Now User:Baffo is a secondary account, is a credit of my new name GseSro.
Do not care what happens to the account Baffo, patience if lose contributions You Steward can make every effort and if necessary can close account Baffo. Thanks equally! GseSro (talk) 19:05, 7 February 2015 (UTC)


en:User:P.ziveri already exists. Does it belong to you? --MF-W 04:45, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
I sent the user an email, waiting for his reply. - εΔω 13:32, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

I declare that the usernames: "P.ziveri", "Pietro.ziveri", and also "ziveri" were ALL created by myself during the last ten years or even more of contributions to Wikipedia. I want my final definitive Username be renamed "p.ziveri" for privacy and practical reasons. I also want to have ALL my contributions from these different accounts/usernames previously created to be merged into the one account/usernmane "p.ziveri". Thank You for your kind and professinal cooperation in helping me solve this conundrum. I will not create another username after this!

Please provide confirmation diffs (saved edits from those accounts) that confirm you own these accounts. Once we can confirm that, we will rename Pietro.ziveri to p.ziveri. Savhñ 11:24, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
I cannot provide confirmation diffs due to the change of e-mail accounts with which I created them.
Please Sir, just rename my username "Pietro.ziveri" in "P.Ziveri" with the "Z" letter in upper case: it is more dicreet.
Also beware that the accounts "ziveri" and "P.ziveri" are inactive and they will forever be so since it was ME who accidentally created them!
Thanks for your time and for your patience.
Pietro.ziveri eventually found out his former login on en.wikipedia: here's the evidence. The user sent me an email asking to restore his first request to be renamed from Pietro.ziveri to p.ziveri. - εΔω 14:13, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
The account P.ziveri exists broadly at the moment, and picking things apart is simply painful. The user needs to review all the accounts, and provide a simple solution to stewards about what they want to do. If they want the old account, then maybe they should just pick a clean account name to which the old account can be moved. Otherwise this will need to wait until mergers are available later in the year.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:40, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
  • I believe the cleanest solution is to break the itwiki and it.wikisource accounts and rename them to "p.ziveri" (and then afterwards "Pietro.ziveri" could be renamed to some random string, the only remaining edits of that global account being related to this request). –xeno 17:57, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
    @P.ziveri: Renamed the itWP and itWS accounts, and have left the enWP and meta accounts at the user name.   Closed If there is more to do, then please reopen prior to archiving or submit a new request and link to Special:PermanentLink/11066362#P.ziveri@global. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:08, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
  • @billinghurst Hello, I do not agree with the solution. I don't want to link Pietro.ziveri to any random string but, as my original intention was: to MERGE P.ziveri and Pietro.ziveri accounts in one account: P.ziveri and, after merging, delete or cancel the information by Pietro.ziveri.

Hence I prefer to WAIT (as you suggested) until mergers are available later this year (when btw?. Thanks

Considering the large amount of edits, and unless Hoo man or Legoktm say otherwise, I fear this request cannot be completed. Savhñ 15:24, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
@Tsuchiya Hikaru: Please advise, otherwise we will close as "not done" in a week. Also noting that I have asked Legoktm to comment if available.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:09, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Some quirks with the rename Phabricator:T87523, and it has been requeued for processing. It is probably worthwhile holding off editing as much as possible until this is resolved.

  awaiting global account merge Edits appear in both Commons accounts, so if edits at newer accounts are to be preserved it requires awaiting the merge tool. We can progress if the 31 edits are not required to be counted.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:43, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
I don't really need to preserve the 31 edits. If the merge tool is not going to be ready soon, I accept this solution. — Weft (talk) 08:04, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
@Weft: On Commons, moved 'Weft' to 'Weft (separated)', and then moved 'WeFt' to 'Weft', so please recover that account for your SUL. To note that when the global merge tool is available then you can probably request that it can be merged back. We will leave that decision to you when the tool is ready.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:34, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
Done, I've recovered the new 'Weft' account on commons for my SUL. Thank you! — Weft (talk) 13:09, 27 January 2015 (UTC)


We can do the rename request, so I am modifying this to be Sky84 to Daniele.Brundu. To have Sky single account merged to Daniele.Brundu, would you please log into that account with the Sky address, and confirm with an edit that the account is yours. A suitable edit could just be mentioning [[m:Special:PermanentLink/11067440]]. Once that is confirmed then we can move that singular account into the SUL account.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:08, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Done both. Is the account on yours? If yes, please access pl:Special:MergeAccount. Otherwise, it might be useful to inform him of the approaching SUL finalisation, when he will be automatically renamed. Savhñ 20:23, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. The plwiki account isn't mine, but as I do not know Polish, there would be a language barrier if I tried to inform the other Jakec of this. Unless there's a template of some sort that can be used for this purpose? --Jakob (talk) 02:39, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
You could use the template {{Przejmowanie - informacja}} to inform the user about usurp attempt. But this account does not qualify for usurpation under local rules as the last edit was on December 10th, 2014. masti <dyskusja> 14:11, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
I wasn't talking about usurpation, but about suggesting the user to choose a different nick, since he will be forcibly renamed with SUL finalisation. Savhñ 11:10, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
Jakec@plwiki has requested to be renamed to Jakec0, per Special:GlobalRenameQueue/request/66 (link only accessible to global renamers and stewards). Savhñ 14:24, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
