Hey guys... it's 9 February :/ Vtrnascimento (talk) 11:41, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
@Vtrnascimento: You removed my comment here. You have +50000 edits and therefore ok from a sysadmin is needed. So this request is   On hold again until sysadmin gives ok. --Steinsplitter (talk) 12:54, 9 February 2016 (UTC)

@Steinsplitter: I'm the IP of this account (for some reason the merge isn't completing)... I may have edited the page while you were and that may be why I "removed" your comment. Sorry 14:14, 9 February 2016 (UTC)
Which error do you see when login as Vítor? --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:20, 9 February 2016 (UTC)


@Maels~enwiki: The user has valid edit on commons for example. We don't usurp users with valid edits. Please pick up a new username. --Steinsplitter (talk) 09:42, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
The only valid edit was a copyright violation, which I have now deleted. I believe this means we can usurp the account. MBisanz talk 20:32, 23 January 2016 (UTC)
@MBisanz: You seen his nlwiki edits? Thanks for deleting the copyvio. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:58, 26 January 2016 (UTC)
I don't read Dutch, so I can't tell if they're significant. We should probably err against renaming. MBisanz talk 19:50, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
Just piping up to let you know I'm still around. Thank you for your time, people. --Maels~enwiki (talk) 13:47, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
@Maels~enwiki: Looks like the target account has valid edits. Please pick up a new username. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:16, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
I've changed my name, thanks again! --Maelses (talk) 02:22, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
Your new name schould be "Maelses"? So we have to usurp Special:CentralAuth/Maelses. Because merging accounts is not possible all edits will be moved to Maelses (usurped). --Steinsplitter (talk) 10:04, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
I used the tool provided here:Special:GlobalRenameRequest to successfully request a username change. I believe all edits are credited to me already and no further action is needed. --Maelses (talk) 12:51, 6 February 2016 (UTC)


  Not done @Babelia: See notice in the box above. Merge two global user accounts is currently not possible. --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:46, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Riley Huntley@global

I have notified the user on dewiki in English and Deutsch, user has not edited in twelve years (2004). Riley Huntley (talk) 04:35, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

  On hold until 13 March 2016. Given the account hasn't edited in 12 years, I don't see the 23 edits as a barrier for usurpation.—cyberpower ChatHello! 04:44, 13 February 2016 (UTC)
@Cyberpower678: The user has valid edits and article creations at dewiki. We don't usurp accounts with valid edits. --Steinsplitter (talk) 09:25, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

It doesn't seem to me a good idea to name your bot "TamilWikiBot", as it could be confused as part of the interface or something else. Savhñ 16:13, 18 February 2016 (UTC)
I agree. This makes it sound too official for Tamil Wikipedia.—cyberpower ChatHello! 18:11, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
  Oppose. I bot not a name TamilWikiBot. ToolMario (talk) 05:47, 22 February 2016 (UTC)
