I confirm, if there's no technical problems, I'd like to rename globally. I'm sure. :) --Larry Yuma (talk) 16:11, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

Can you please explain your block on enwiki first? I'm willing to grant given that enwiki isn't your home wiki, but I would like to hear your explanation.—cyberpower ChatHello! 01:14, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

"Karabakh districts was occupied by the armenian military units. Due to United Nations Security Council Resolution 822, 853, 874 and 884 these lands are considered occupied by local Armenian forces and demands immediate, complete and unconditional withdrawal of the occupying forces. Nagorno-Karabakh is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan. Khankendi de jure part of the Azerbaijan"... it's just a reality. Im blocked. Why? I'm not a vandal. Give me second chance. Are you can open the my block? I want to use my personal name.--Felaket91 (talk) 17:44, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

  Not doneYou don't seem to understand why you are blocked, nor do I consider the explanation sufficient enough to consider a rename despite the block. We generally don't rename accounts if there is a block in place. Please go to enwiki and appeal your block first.—cyberpower ChatHello! 18:24, 15 March 2016 (UTC)
As an added note, your removing my comments and close just continues to demonstrate the same problem that led to your block on enwiki. As such your rename request remains   Not done.—cyberpower ChatHello! 19:02, 15 March 2016 (UTC)


  Not done You have been blocked multiple times for multiple offenses including socking. We do not rename users who are blocked. You must get unblocked first.—cyberpower ChatHello! 03:24, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

Snow Rise@global

Snow Rise (talk) 14:27, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

We typically don't usurp names that have valid edits, but I'm going to ask my fellow renamers if we could make an exception.—cyberpower ChatHello! 14:42, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
So due to licensing reasons, we cannot make exceptions, however we can rename you to -snow, if you would like. Alternatively, you can custom the way your user pages display it's title by hiding the " Rise" part of it.—cyberpower ChatHello! 14:52, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
Some years ago, Moonriddengirl advised that usurpation of usernames does not present significant GFDL or cc-by-sa licensing concerns (though I'm having trouble tracking down the thread). So I'm not sure that a decline strictly on that basis is indicated in this case (though it may not qualify for other reasons, number of edits, etc.)

Has the global usurpation policy discussion stalled again? –xeno 16:25, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

It is perpetually stalled, though Requests for comment/Global usurpation policy 2 is almost good to go. The Oct 2015 account creation on enwiki means that they've logged in as recently as that, and given the content contributions (even as far back as 2006), I don't think this request can be granted. Ajraddatz (talk) 19:42, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
My thanks to all three of you for taking some time to look into this and shed some light on the policy and technical considerations for me. I'll take a little bit of time to ponder whether to change to a third name altogether or just keep an eye on the policy proposals in this area to see if the rules on global usurpation change enough to allow me to make a bid for "Snow". Thanks again of the assistance! Snow Rise (talk) 22:13, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

@Vamp+: Not done, that username is taken. Please pick a new one; if you use Special:GlobalRenameRequest it'll be easier to see if there is an existing account. Ajraddatz (talk) 07:13, 27 March 2016 (UTC)


"— The preceding unsigned comment was added by Cutrupe (talk) 15:29, 18 March 2016 (UTC)"

{{notdone}} The target user has more than 2000 edits. You need to contact the user and have them agree to relinquish their username.—cyberpower ChatHello! 20:10, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
Look more closely [1]. They are the same user. A steward can solve this by renaming vinicius10 globally to vinicius10 (temp), then renaming Cutrupe to Vinicius10, rename locally Es:Vinicius10 to Es:Vinicius10 (usurped) and rename locally Es:Vinicius10 (temp) to Es:Vinicius10 and have the user merge the account again. –xeno 11:59, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
Oh my mistake.—cyberpower ChatHello! 13:10, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
Please, confirm that you own Vinicius10 account. Ruslik (talk) 20:22, 21 March 2016 (UTC)
Yes, it's true. I want to change Cutrupe to Vinicius10 :) --Vinicius10 (talk) 16:14, 27 March 2016 (UTC) /cc @Cyberpower678 @Ruslik
  Donecyberpower ChatHello! 03:01, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
No, you didn't do it. You just usurped the past account and renamed the person, without looking at the eswiki account. I've fixed it now, but please leave complex requests to stewards rather than doing half of them. Thanks, Ajraddatz (talk) 03:26, 28 March 2016 (UTC)
Oops. Sorry. I misinterpreted what this request was about.—cyberpower ChatHello! 12:46, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

Note that given the edit count, a dev will need to give the OK before this is processed. I can't find any right now. Ajraddatz (talk) 07:17, 27 March 2016 (UTC)

@Jarould: I talked with a dev, you have ~ 260,000 edits. It might be complicated renaming you. Please file a task on phabricator. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:04, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
