  Not done I'm sorry to inform you that due to globalization, he owns the SUL will get full control of the username, globally. They cannot be renamed individually for this purpose. So your request is not possible for technical reasons.—cyberpower ChatHello! 12:56, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

thanks but unfortunately somehow my discussion page is lost or doesn't work... :( could you please help with it? --Ppiioottrr (talk) 13:51, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi Ppiioottrr, can you link to the discussion page that you think isn't working? —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 13:58, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

yes, please: under the link to my talk page appears --Ppiioottrr (talk) 14:02, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

@Ppiioottrr: That seems to be caused by this redirect; that redirect also appears to be your current talk page. Just edit the redirect page and remove the redirect. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 14:06, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

ok. thanks. buy now I have no discussion at all... where is my "old" talk page? --Ppiioottrr (talk) 14:17, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

@Ppiioottrr: I think I know what went wrong here. Looks like Cyberpower678 forgot to disable the creation of redirects when he renamed the old account, so a redirect was created from Dyskusja_wikipedysty:Ppiioottrr to Dyskusja_wikipedysty:Ppiioottrr~plwiki. That redirect probably prevented Dyskusja_wikipedysty:Piotrjutkiewicz from being moved to Dyskusja_wikipedysty:Ppiioottrr. Oh dear, looks like I shouldn't have told you to edit that redirect page. You will have to ask a local admin to delete Dyskusja_wikipedysty:Ppiioottrr and then move Dyskusja_wikipedysty:Piotrjutkiewicz to Dyskusja_wikipedysty:Ppiioottrr. Sorry for the inconvenience. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 14:22, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

ok. thanks for your help. i'm to contact a local admin. --Ppiioottrr (talk) 14:36, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

please notify the user in their dewiki talk page about this request by using {{Usurpation requested}}. after that we'll hold the request for a month to give the user a chance to reply. Best, ~ Nahid Talk 15:46, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

?? You need to notify the target user that you want to usurp their username, on their home wiki.—cyberpower ChatHello! 17:48, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
Dear cyberpower, I really do not understand you.--Garik.Kh (talk) 17:54, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
The account Jeon already exists, unless you want to usurp it, you cannot have it. If you want this username, you need to notify Jeon on their home wiki.—cyberpower ChatHello! 17:56, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
User Jeon is not active now[1]. Do I need her/his response?--Garik.Kh (talk) 18:07, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

  Not done Merging of local accounts is not technically possible. As to the deletion of your userpage, please, ask local administrators. Ruslik (talk) 18:14, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
I'd like to usurp my old Spanish account. Isn't it possible to usurp a local account? I've seen it happen before. I might have used the wrong words, I meant usurping rather than merging. If this isn't possible either, I guess I'll ask a local administrator. Thank you. --Novelon123 (talk) 18:38, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi @MatheMezzaMorphis163: I can usurp the existing Aleph Null account for you, but I'd need to wait a month after notifying the current owner (even though they haven't logged in in over two years). Would another username work for you, such as Aleph Null1 or something similar to that? (AlephNull is also taken). Thanks, Ajraddatz (talk) 07:16, 27 March 2016 (UTC)

  Not done You are blocked on 3 wikis, and the target username has edits. You also did not provide a reason for your rename request.—cyberpower ChatHello! 14:29, 25 April 2016 (UTC)
Cyberpower678, The other projects are not important for me. I am the editor of the Armenian Wikipedia: Blocking is not valid (Armenian-Azerbaijani riots), the result of an error. Please change my user name.--El-ßäbrega (talk) 12:26, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
That may be well and true for you, but users of other wikis may take exception to a blocked user being renamed, especially since you seemed to have an issue with sock puppets on the english Wikipedia. Also the target username you requested is taken. Your rename can simply not be done as this request currently stands. I have however, raised this issue with the other renamers, to see if I could/should make an exceptions to your three blocks.—cyberpower ChatHello! 16:22, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
So, I've consulted with other renamers, and I'm sorry to say we all agree that your request cannot be fulfilled because of the two reasons mentioned.—cyberpower ChatHello! 03:32, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
Cyberpower678, Anyway, Thank you. When can I appeal again? In wikicommns my block will end soon and I hope the problems will be resolved soon in English Wikipedia. In that case, may I again appeal to you?--El-ßäbrega (talk) 08:18, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
When your blocks have been lifted you can request again.—cyberpower ChatHello! 12:41, 27 April 2016 (UTC)


Not done. Please continue to use this username, due to cross-wiki issues. Ajraddatz (talk) 05:17, 26 April 2016 (UTC)
If you decide, I'm always accept and support. AYST201 (talk) 04:13, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

Well we cannot merge user accounts. As stated above and for us to reset a password to an email, the account would have to be associated with one. Unless the sysadmins want to/can actually do something, your account is lost. I leave someone else to comment here in case I'm missing something.—cyberpower ChatHello! 12:51, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
  Not done Since no one else has commented here, I'm closing this as not doable.—cyberpower ChatHello! 22:51, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
@Hoo man: Could you perhaps look into this? --Vogone (talk) 22:54, 18 April 2016 (UTC)
That looks pretty good already, it would be nice if René could also contact me via mail (Special:EmailUser/Hoo man) briefly to confirm this (he knows me, I'm Marius). Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 13:20, 19 April 2016 (UTC)
Hey Hoo man, I notified Rene and I hope he will contact you soon. Thank you for dealing with this non-regular request!--Sebschlicht2 (talk) 14:51, 19 April 2016 (UTC)

It's unclear what you want us to do.—cyberpower ChatHello! 19:08, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm not much familiar with wikimedia practices. I was redirected here from c:User talk:Rehman#Request: merge users, please. If it were possible to run Special:UserMerge with
       Old user (merge from):  Ale2006-from-en
       New user (merge to):    Ale2006
that would do it. If the tool was removed, requires too much verifications, or that cannot be done for whatever reason, I'll wait. I'm aware that could mean waiting forever. Meanwhile I'll continue to use the old name, except if asked to do otherwise. I don't know why the need arose to use a global user-id.
