Simple rename requests

Amin is already taken. If you registered Amin, please resubmit the request in the section below so the stewards can delete that SUL account and rename you.-Mys_721tx (talk) 04:25, 2 May 2015 (UTC)


@Calvinius: Do you own the global account "MartinGrandjean"? If so, you have to do a confirmation edit using that account and thus confirming it's your account. --Stryn (talk) 13:23, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
@Stryn: Yes I do (but do you want a confirmation here or on the Commons profile?), it was an incomplete attempt a few months ago... Please note that I request an username change only for the 'Calvinius' Commons account (that means that the other accounts bound by this 'MartinGrandjean' global account can be deleted). Thanks for your work! --MartinGrandjean (talk) 18:27, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
So I confirm that this previous message is from me ;) To be clear, my wish would be to keep my Calvinius username for every projects (Calvinius) except for Wikimedia Commons, where I wish to use the MartinGrandjean username (I hope it's understandable). --Calvinius (talk) 18:38, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Eu precisa renomear a conta o nome "Medroso" porque inicialmente Eu faria um teste no mundo Wiki e não imaginava que iria se apegar com o projeto. E por este motivo, Eu teria que mudar para "Wiki Music", pois eu pretende contribuir com artigos de música e quero ter uma identidade fixa. Medroso (talk) 02:40, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

Hello, "David" is not available, see Special:CentralAuth/David. Please choose another username. --Stryn (talk) 18:20, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
As I'm not active across any of the other projects, and I have no plans to be, is there no way to keep the username I fought for? David~enwiki (talk) 02:06, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
Unfortunately it's been decided that having unified accounts with the same name should be the norm (so things like a central watchlist could work), and that those with most edits/flags have priority. -- Mentifisto 04:55, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
@David~enwiki: do you have another choice of username? Otherwise we will close unactioned. You can always request an available username from Special:GlobalRenameRequest  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:07, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

  stale request please resubmit with unused name if rename is still required.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:15, 15 May 2015 (UTC)


You need to log in so that a request would be a valid. Are you asking us to merge your accounts "tshombe" (exists on Commons) and "tshombe~enwiki"? --Stryn (talk) 13:32, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
Hi Stryn, thank you for the reply. As I explained in the link above, I do not have an account. I tried to create the account "tshombe" but received the message that it was already in use. Elsewhere, however, I'm told the account is not registered and has been renamed at tshombe~enwiki. I would like to claim "tshombe," and use it everywhere. What do I need to do to claim the name and begin logging into the account? Thank you!
You can't get a username "tshombe" as it already exists, see Special:CentralAuth/tshombe. --Stryn (talk) 12:30, 3 May 2015 (UTC)

  Done. --Stryn (talk) 07:13, 1 May 2015 (UTC)


  Done - I did renamed FPas to FPas (vandal account) and locked the later, then FPas~enwiki to FPas. Hope that everything is ok now. The system gave me a warning that there was a FPAS account already, but CentralAuth shows that it's also an impersonating account already globally locked so I did override the warning.

Actually 233 edits is pretty much... I would kindly ask you to choose another username that is available. --Stryn (talk) 16:35, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
Yes, but those edits were made a long time ago and the account is stale. And apart from the, the name has not ever been used in any other global wiki. I would expect that there would be a case of precedence for a user with 52,000+ edits in comparison to a stale one with 200. Mar4d (talk) 18:26, 27 April 2015 (UTC)
The account is and has been used by another person, we respect their contributions and the name is not available; we ask that you choose another.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:50, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
What if I capitalize the letters (User:KHAN). I believe that one's not taken. And also, if I can use the capitalized name, would I be able to redirect User:Khan to it on the English Wikipedia? (User:Khan is not registered on Mar4d (talk) 06:50, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
The anti-spoof extension will reject the request. We are trying to get names that do not confuse with others. And yes, pretty much all the good simple user names have been taken, and have been for many years. Please choose again.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:45, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

If a global account, Amin, is not you, you can't get "Amin" username. So unfortunately, you have to choose another username. --Stryn (talk) 08:35, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

ok please delete my account and all of my edit i don't like to have any edit in wikipedia because of this work I was known by this " Amin " not by Amin~fawiki in one of wikipedia.

Now , if you can not and if donot want to change my name , please delete all of my edit and my account in wikipedia .Thank you--Amin~fawiki (talk) 13:38, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

It's not possible to delete accounts nor remove edits. --Stryn (talk) 13:39, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

The username was taken by another user as part of the globalisation process as was explained on your user talk page. Please choose another username or request a rename via Special:GlobalRenameRequest  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:10, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

this is not good reason. this is my name in persian wikipedia i donot want use a another name.if you force the user to change username in future just told me or write it in Your rules then i did not register now if you can not comeback my name delete all of my account and edits or change my name to former name--Amin~fawiki (talk) 20:03, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

  stalemate. We cannot delete accounts, and you have not selected a username to which we can move you, so I will close this request, and if you find a username that suits you, then please submit a new request.

There has been much communication about this issue to address why this has been done, what has been done, and the effects of it. There was many attempts to engage language wikis in the process by WMF over many months. There was personal contact with accounts at the end explaining exactly what was going to happen. Due diligence was undertaken.

You are one of many people being renamed due to sharing a username, as there is now the requirement for unique usernames to resolve issues and to progress development. You have been renamed to this account name, and the previous account name is not available (as per correspondence and explanation). Yes, it is a less than perfect solution for a legacy issue, though it was the best solution available, and to allow the site to continue to progress and to provide tools and features that users are demanding. We are where we are.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:58, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

it is ridiculous that WMF right to change the account name, and i don't have right to request for delete all of my edits and account??? if you don't want to change my name to former it is too simple DELETE all my account.why? because you have a ridiculous right to change username of member and It is legal wright BUT if i want to delete my account because of you changing my username is not legal?!!--Amin~fawiki (talk) 03:03, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
Mate, I don't make the rules or do the developing, I am letting you know of the limitations that exist. If you believe that you should have the right to delete an account, then please start a discussion as RFC or submit a phabricator: ticket. If you believe what has occurred is contrary to the terms of use then please follow the resolution process as expressed there. Here we are trying to do our best to assist resolve issues with the scope of our powers.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:54, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
Are you OK? i tell you i want my name and it is illegal that wikipedia change my name without my allow and you tell me submit a request in phabricator????
i tell it is in your rule that i can not delete my edits or account ok? BUT why WMF change my name? why change my name Without my permission? please show me what paragraph of your term of use or other pages in past write that wikipedia change my username in future? please show me? it is ridiculous--Amin~fawiki (talk) 08:11, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes, WMF can obviously change your name and did this in order to enable global, Wikimedia-wide accounts. See SUL finalization. --MF-W 10:58, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
what?this page create in April 2013 not in 2001 or 2008 or 2010.if i register after April 2013 ,I had no right to protest. this rule not for former user it is ridiculous that WMF right to change the account name because of this rule in April 2013.if you add this to Registration Rules at first when i register and i accept that now I had no right to protest and it is OK , because i accept that in past. Now i don't accept this in past if i know WMF have this permission to change my user name in future i don't register and edit in that.It is ridiculous that you're referring me to the page--Amin~fawiki (talk) 14:56, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

I've already logged into the two accounts I'm making this request for, pooryorick~enwiki, and pooryorick~enwikibooks, and left confirmation edits. To make it clear, I'm asking to retain the "pooryorick" name. I don't know why the decision was made to rename my accounts rather than renaming other "pooryorick" accounts, but I believe my claim on that name is far stronger than that of whoever lucked out and retained the "pooryorick" name globally. — Pooryorick~enwiki (talk) 21:49, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
@Pooryorick~enwiki: The accounts were not unified, and instruction has been floating around for a period of time about how to unify, and what will be happening to accounts. At this point to get the accounts into the one account you will need to choose a new and available username and we can look to move one, and merge the rest.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:16, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

TheF@fr.wikipedia and Fraf@en.wikipedia


Before SUL I had two different local accounts, "TheF" on fr.wikipedia and commons, and "Fraf" on en.wikipedia ; "Fraf" is the username I use to take on various other project, but it was already taken when I created my account on fr., in 2008 ; the same way, "TheF" wasn't free when I created my second local account on en. ; now with the changes of the SUL, I got two global accounts ; being for now impossible to merge them together, I'd like that my second account, Fraf, would be renamed as "Fraf2" (or anything else available, please just tell me wich...), so the username "Fraf" would get free again, and then, that my main account, TheF, would be rename as "Fraf".

For what I understood, I will be able to ask for a merge of the two accounts later, when the Merge tool will be available, am I right ? And for now, that will allow me to keep contributing on both wikis without having to unlog/relog each time I switch...

Thanks for helping me, not sure I was perfectly clear, so don't hesitate to ask me for precisions (including to prove I am the same person using the two accounts, not sure I confirmed it the right way...

Hi @Copyleft:, if you would like to usurp unattached en wiki account that can be done, so that you can use copyleft on en wiki too. Also if my understanding is correct, you want to merge Eurobas into copyleft account, it won't be possible for now because the user merge tool is still in development--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 11:21, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
@Shanmugamp7: we should be able to move out/usurp the enWP account, and move in the replacement. Just will need to get user to align passwords/passwords. We would need a confirmation of the Eurobas account to be moved and merged.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:09, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
@Eurobas and Copyleft: if you can have the Eurobas username confirm that it is to be merged, we can move this to the "pending" file for merges.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:11, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

@Sanyi4: You have the global account under this name. What we can look to do is to merge those pertinent accounts from Kontas. We will need for you to login to each of the relevant accounts under Kontas and identify which are to be merged. Some may be able to do soon, others will need to wait until the global unification process is further progressed.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:00, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: (I did not own the global user for Kontos, if you meant that.) Now the local Kontos accounts are being renamed to Kontos~xy, many have been renamed already.

Beste Sol, ik stel uw bijdragen zeer op prijs en het is inderdaad zeer onprettig dat uw naam, waar u onder bekend staat op Wikibooks, hernoemd is. Echter zoals reeds op uw overlegpagina op Wikibooks is uitgelegd zijn er helaas twee mensen met de naam Sol. Daarom is gekeken door een automatisch programma wie de naam het beste kan krijgen. De Duitse bijdrager heeft 10x meer bijdragen dan u. Toen u in 2011 begon op Wikibooks was de Duitse gebruiker al 7 jaar op Wikimedia actief. Verder is de Duitse gebruiker in de afgelopen jaren actiever dan u. Ik denk dat de Duitse gebruiker een goede aanspraak heeft op de naam. Graag wil ik u daarom vragen een andere naam te kiezen. Met vriendelijke groet, Taketa (talk) 09:45, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
U doet een aanname. Heeft die andere gebruiker überhaupt wel bezwaar gemaakt tegen een naamsverandering? Verder stamt de laatste edit van de Duiste Sol uit 2012. Overigens als ik de Sol gebruiker opzoek in User_talk:Sol#Your_account_will_be_renamed, dan staat er op die pagina te lezen:
   Your account here on the English Wikipedia is not eligible to have a cloak (less than 250 edits)...
   If you don't own either of those accounts, I can't set you a cloak
Daarop volgt verder geen reactie, dus ik verwacht dat dat niet een en dezelfde eigenaar was.
(Ik heb overigens ingelogd, maar mijn UID wordt nog steeds niet herkend.)
Verder vind ik op de Duitse gebruiker helemaal geen 10x meer bijdragen en al helemaal niet in volume. Blijkbaar wegen het aantal projects zwaarder dan het aantal edits. Maar het project waar ik aan werk is een BOEK en niet een artikel! Rond dat boek bevindt zich een gehele community. Ik heb de "andere" Sol's 6 edits found in 9 projects doorgekeken, maar dat is qua volume minder. Ik snap dus niet waarom ik minder recht op het behouden van mijn naam zou hebben dat die anderen?
Er kloppen meer dingen niet. Wanneer ik die inactieve Duitse Sol user opzoek, dan zit deze in de usergroup: "autoreview". Als ik doorklik op de artikelen waaraan hij gelinkt is en ik kijk in de history daarvan, dan komt Sol niet eens voor in de lijst van editors. Het hele zaakje stinkt wat mij betreft om de volgende redenen:
- De gebruiker is niet actief
- Bewijs van zijn zogenaamde 1.600 bijdragen is niet te vinden. Hij komt bijna nooit voor in de artikelen waaraan hij gelinkt is.
- Heeft die inactieve gebruiker ooit bezwaar gemaakt tegen een rename van de naam Sol?
- De gebruiker lijkt geautomatiseerd edits te hebben gemaakt omdat die in de groep "autoreview" zit. 10:40, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Beste Sol, zie [38]. Zoals te zien heeft de Duitse gebruiker 1600+ bijdragen. Klik op het nummer en je krijgt de bijdragen te zien. Verder kun je op die pagina zien op welke projecten hij accounts heeft. Hij heeft gedurende een periode van jaren bijgedragen. Meest recent idd in 2012. Uw meest recente bijdrage voor hernoeming was 2013. Dit beschouw ik als onvoldoende argument. De Engelse gebruiker is niet verbonden aan de account van de Duitse gebruiker. De groep autoreview maakt geen automatische bewerkingen. Dit zorgt enkel dat men een controle over slaat. Het zorgt voor logboek acties en niet voor bewerkingen. Dit is geen onderdeel van de bijdragen. Het betekent enkel dat deze persoon vertrouwen geniet binnen diens project. De naam is toewezen aan de Duitse gebruiker. Dit betreft een serieuze account. Enkel in extreem duidelijke gevallen wordt een hernoeming herzien. In dit geval geef ik zelfs de voorkeur aan de Duitse gebruiker. Daarom zie ik geen reden dit te herzien. Je kunt het beste een andere naam kiezen. Met vriendelijke groet, Taketa (talk) 19:04, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
Dat is het hem nu juist. Die lijst klopt niet. Als ik willekeurig doorklik op die 1600+ zogenaamde bijdragen, dan komt UID Sol heel vaak niet eens voor in de geschiedenis van de pagina's. Wel zie ik edits van een ander gebruikers ID: "Sol1" voorkomen in die lijst (zie bijvoorbeeld deze entry uit de lijst). Het lijkt wel of die lijst alle entries bevat waarin het deelwoord "Sol" voorkwam. Het heeft dus verkeerde dingen meegeteld. Wanneer ik op "Sol1" search dan krijg ik duizenden bijdragen te zien. Wanneer ik hier zoek op de oude Duitse "Sol" identiteit, dan kom ik slechts 20 bijdragen tegen op Gebruiker Sol1 had echter niet de Sol identiteit en lijkt die nu wel te hebben!
Ik vind het heel jammer dat mijn Sol identiteit nu naar een inactieve gebruiker is gegaan op basis van de edits van een "Sol1" identiteit. Terwijl ik al jaren actief een boek modereer, waar een gehele community aan bijdraagt. De naam Sol is een personal brand. Ik ben bekend onder die naam ook in die community.

Hi Teevati, the "Grove~enwiki" account has 0 edits. Combining 0 edits with the "Teevati" account would not change anything. Also we currently do not have the tools to merge accounts (all we can do is swith local accounts). All the best, Taketa (talk) 05:47, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Hi Taketa, thank You for a swift response. I didn't realise that I hadn't made any edits with "Grove" (now "Grove~enwiki) before adding "Teevati" as a global account back in the day. Regards. Teevati (talk) 06:08, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

I got a notice on Meta here that the name Arvedui was taken and would need to be changed, but I've been Arvedui at since at least early 2005 as well as most every other wiki account I've ever joined over the past decade. Is it possible that I'm conflicting with my own name somehow? Is there really another Wikimedia Arvedui predating me? --Arvedui (talk) 09:01, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

  Not done It's not taken; as you see you're logged in as "Arvedui" so it is very likely that you still own the account. You got the message on March, and your Meta account was attached to global account in April. --Stryn (talk) 13:48, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
Oh good. I wasn't sure of the timeframe for the global name-changes and if they had already happened yet or not. Thanks! --Arvedui (talk) 05:10, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
