That block is due to the fact that I have tried to add information in that language about Queen (band) but while I used merely a dictionary and dismissed grammar and insisted on my mistakes they have blocked me. "Sabbathbloodness (talk) 19:17, 13 August 2016 (UTC)"

Jamadnemana (talk) 16:23, 17 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Please give this alleged change any grant. This is a terrible conspiracy and abuse against my personality. The desired change of name Mirzali orospu çocuğudur means "Mirzali is son of a bitch". This fact is probably out of Erdemaslancan, who acts with different names and he tries to ruining the Zazaki project with his ignorance. This is a very serious matter. Please check carefully before you judge probably wrong. He (Jamadnemana) has built this epithet (Mirzali orospu çocuğudur) in 27 different wikis for me. Best regards! -- Mirzali (talk) 14:14, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
    • I renamed the user again (to "Renameduser025"). Sorry that the actual request of the user to be renamed into an insult against you was granted! I'll delete any remaining pages with the username. --MF-W 17:18, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications


  • Clerk Note: Username MB is already in use. See CentralAuth.
    Hello! Mb66w, please choose another username for you. Thanks, ~MMGJ~ (talk) 09:30, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
    • Comment the target username has only one global edit, which is to pl.wikipedia. However, it's quite a minor one [1] and the user doesn't appear to have any other activity. Omni Flames (talk) 09:59, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
    • I know.--~MMGJ~ (talk) 10:08, 27 June 2016 (UTC)

Status:    Done

I've just noticed that en:User:G88keeper, a long-term but infrequent editor, has a Commons account that didn't get unified - presumably he didn't see the notifications. It's now at c:User:G88keeper~commonswiki. Can this be rectified with RenameUser, or does it fall under "global user account merges"? Thanks. — Scott talk 16:22, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

It's fixable, but only Stewards have that power.—cyberpower ChatHello! 16:24, 3 June 2016 (UTC)

So you can't log in at all? What if you try logging into meta using the username Skiwi~metawiki? Omni Flames (talk) 09:28, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
This unfortunately something only a steward can fix as every individual account needs to be renamed to the requested name, and then the user needs to logon to one of those accounts under the new name and SUL unify all of them.—cyberpower ChatHello! 21:18, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
If you cannot log your account, You can change password with the mail (But only if you have the mail confirmed). If you don't have a mail confirmed, you need to create a new account. Sorry and thanks. --Rolodata (talk) 08:51, 4 August 2016 (UTC)
The account "Skiwier" already exists. You could start the usurpation process (notifying the user and waiting), or choose a different username to which I can rename the enwiki, enwikivoyage, commons, meta and enwiktionary accounts, which are those with edits. Savhñ 20:41, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
