It's not possible to delete an account. You can rename the account, but the name "Delete" is taken. -- Tegel (Talk) 11:16, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

  Not done, DB is in use on, having over 5000 edits. It will not be usurped. Should you wish to be renamed, please choose a nick that is not in use; you can file a simple request through Special:GlobalRenameRequest. Savhñ 01:04, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

Severe №1@global

Done, rename completed. Savhñ 13:49, 19 May 2016 (UTC)


Can you please explain why your signature is the same as the user's a couple of requests up?—cyberpower ChatHello! 11:57, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
Probably because he copied the request from above and filled it in. Rename is in progress. Savhñ 11:59, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
Oh dear, looks like this is one of the requests borked by phab:T135656, forever stuck in limbo :( —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 21:18, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks to the sysadmin, Legoktm, he was able to get the stuck renames unstuck. You're request is now   Donecyberpower ChatHello! 02:51, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Please notify target user with the {{Usurpation requested}} template.—cyberpower ChatHello! 02:34, 25 May 2016 (UTC)
@ウグイス: Target user has made one edit on jawiki (and it is not vandalism), I recommend picking another username instead, since global renamers don't usurp accounts that have valid edits. Thanks, Pokéfan95 (talk) 10:05, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
@Pokéfan95: I changed my Newname. ウグイス (talk) 12:45, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
Global account "Sasanqua" doesn't exist, global renaming can be done now. Thanks, Pokéfan95 (talk) 12:56, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
Global account SASANQUA does exist, and has a significant amount of contributions, including recent ones. Please choose a different name. Savhñ 22:19, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
@ウグイス: The reason why you need to choose another name is that there is a similar name that exist, which is "SASANQUA". That account has made 200+ edits. Thanks, Pokéfan95 (talk) 00:49, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
@Pokéfan95: I changed my Newname. ウグイス (talk) 01:43, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
No global account exists for U-511, and there are no similar names of U-511. Global renaming can be done now. Pokéfan95 (talk) 04:06, 28 May 2016 (UTC)

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications


--Laberkiste (talk) 20:08, 2 May 2016 (UTC)

I don't think a username change should be enfroced because a POV of a single user, who probably doesn't even know why the user chose his username. Furthermore, it looks like the user hasn't even informed JosFritz about this request. --MGChecker (talk) 21:56, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
No, it is nonsens. I reject it at dewiki. --Itti (talk) 22:48, 2 May 2016 (UTC) bureaucrat at dewiki
  Not done Absolutely not. We do not forcibly rename established users. This request clearly crosses that line.—cyberpower ChatHello! 22:55, 2 May 2016 (UTC)


  On hold; sysadmin required. Riley Huntley (talk) 02:17, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
Will do the rename together with sysadmin in the next days. --Steinsplitter (talk) 09:29, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Ish ishwar@global and Ishwar~commonswiki@global

Just editing from other account to say I agree. Ish ishwar (talk) 18:47, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
A steward/sysadmin will need to handle this one. This goes beyond my scope.—cyberpower ChatHello! 05:20, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
Ok. Do they come by here? Or, do I need post this request somewhere else? Ish ishwar (talk) 21:49, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
@Ish ishwar:, please access this page while logged in to complete the unification of your SUL-account. Once you have done that, your account should be globally unified under "Ish ishwar"Savhñ 11:17, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
@Savh:, my password doesn't seem to work for that account now. Shouldn't the password for commons and be the same now? Ish ishwar (talk) 14:55, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
No, that unattached account still possesses the password of the Ishwar~commonswiki account.—cyberpower ChatHello! 15:11, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
Please also try any old pre-SUL password, or otherwise reset the password on commons through your e-mail. Savhñ 16:26, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
@Ish ishwar: Please merge your account; otherwise you can't use the commons account. Savhñ 11:49, 10 May 2016 (UTC)
@Savh:, I can't if the password I'm supposed to be using is the same as my account password. I can still login under Ishwar~commonswiki. Ish ishwar (talk) 17:17, 10 May 2016 (UTC)
@Ish ishwar: In principle, it should be the same as your Ishwar~commonswiki password, but only to log in on Commons. Savhñ 17:20, 10 May 2016 (UTC)
@Ish ishwar:, I'm glad you have merged your account. For future reference in other cases, we would appreciate if you could indicate what was causing the issue. Yours, Savhñ 09:55, 16 May 2016 (UTC)
What didn't work:
  1. I couldn't log in to commons with my (old) Ishwar username.
  2. I couldn't log in to commons with my Ish_ishwar username.
  3. Therefore, I couldn't use since I wasn't logged in there.
What did work:
I note that there's some residue: . But, whatever.... Ish ishwar (talk) 20:42, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

Авенгерс Актион@global

  Done There was no need to even notify or wait this one out. That account was clearly an unproductive attack only account.

@Ochilov: Please notify the user about this request. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:36, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
@Steinsplitter:, done. --Ochilov (talk) 12:46, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
  On hold until June 6 2016.—cyberpower ChatHello! 15:15, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
  Request withdrawn I just have found a better username. --Ochilov (talk) 11:22, 12 May 2016 (UTC)


  Done Target account was a vandalism only account.—cyberpower ChatHello! 13:57, 14 May 2016 (UTC)


@Auriel.kitsu: Due to technical limitations, usernames must always start with an uppercase letter; thus a rename to "auriel.kitsu" is not possible. Sorry. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 13:40, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
  Not done Sorry but all usernames start with an uppercase letter. There is nothing we can do here.—cyberpower ChatHello! 13:58, 14 May 2016 (UTC)


@Vaselineeeeeeee: You can't change your username just for a single wiki. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:38, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

Seriously? Okay forget it then, I withdraw.   Request withdrawnVaselineeeeeeee (talk) 16:43, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

Even if you could, the requested username is already taken. So this request would have been declined anyways.—cyberpower ChatHello! 16:54, 14 May 2016 (UTC)
I knew it was taken in, but it wasn't in But now I know you can't change it for only one wiki so it makes sense now that the name could not be taken across all wikis. Vaselineeeeeeee (talk) 19:27, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

--Kaptain Marvel (talk) 06:08, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Please notify the user on the local talk page.—cyberpower ChatHello! 06:10, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
If local talk page means English Wikipedia? Then I wrote on his talk page. --Kaptain Marvel (talk) 06:11, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
I would prefer it if you used the {{Usurpation requested}} template instead.—cyberpower ChatHello! 06:14, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
The template is not working there --Kaptain Marvel (talk) 06:19, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
You have to substitute the template. The error message tells you how to do it.—cyberpower ChatHello! 06:23, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
Ya, I saw that error message properly and did it. --Kaptain Marvel (talk) 06:24, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
  On hold until 2 June 2016.—cyberpower ChatHello! 06:26, 1 May 2016 (UTC)
I just blocked Kaptain Marvel at en-wiki as a confirmed sock puppet of CosmicEmperor.--Bbb23 (talk) 13:45, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
Declining. Usurping is a favour done to users in good standing. Savhñ 13:48, 23 May 2016 (UTC)


@4nn1l2: Please notify the target user at their home wiki (fawiki). Thanks, Pokéfan95 (talk) 10:00, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
@Pokéfan95: Even if he or she has no edits at all? 4nn1l2 (talk) 10:14, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
@4nn1l2: Yes. Pokéfan95 (talk) 10:22, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
I changed my mind. 4nn1l2 (talk) 11:09, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

Assuming you meant you wanted to cancel your request, I'm marking this as   Not done. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 11:42, 27 May 2016 (UTC)


The name you chose is confusing, which is against the policy on many wikis. You might want to choose a different one. — Yerpo Eh? 19:39, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
