This user appears to be a blocked sock. Decline.—cyberpower ChatHello! 21:56, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
@User:Cyberpower678, and User:K6ka. I'm blocked on two wikis, German and English. In english wiki, im blocked as a sock master, and i want to make aggrement with CU that if you consider unblock, then i'll not create any other sock account. While in German wiki, their block was incorrect, how? Because they blocked me as a sockpuppet of GLGerman and not blocked me as a sock master. And also i don't know who GLGerman is. So, in dewiki, block is fully incorrect, im confident that im not a sock puppet of GLGerman. They even not requested the CU to check me! They just blocked me. And block was made by User:MBq. Thank you.--Gadri (talk) 05:52, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
Your only edit in de.wp was this greeting of an account which had been created 10 min before, probably by our troll GLGerman, or probably by the global troll Europefan, ... or probably both. Decline (I'm a global-renamer). --MBq (talk) 07:54, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

@MBq, i think there are many CheckUsers at dewiki. Why not you can request a check user to check me, i'm confident that you find me as   Unrelated to GLGerman. You're doing not fair with me. It's not a game.--Gadri (talk) 10:09, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

I just leaved a welcome message at their talk page, and that doesn't mean that i'm the same person. Are you playing with admin tools?--Gadri (talk) 10:20, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
Instaneously greeting a newly-formed sock is a strong clue, though. - In terms of CU, that's a pretty tedious process in de.wp, and not used in simple situations like this. Remember, it's your privacy we protect (i.e. your IP adress and geolocation). --MBq (talk) 10:33, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
@MBq but why you just blocked 100% different person as a sock of GLGerman, it's not fair. Unblock me. Even you haven't confirmed this, and just thuck, blocked me.--Gadri (talk) 10:48, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
@User:MBq, sock puppet is a person who abusively use multiple accounts. And you're not confirmed this, that i'm really the same person or not. Calling anyone sockpuppet, even the're unrelated is not fair.--Gadri (talk) 10:54, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
You have found no behavorial evidence, no tecnical evidence. Just saw me welcoming user and blocked me.--Gadri (talk) 10:58, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
  • MBq and Gadri, could you discuss this elsewhere? This page is for requesting a username change, not for debating about sockpuppetry. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 13:02, 1 September 2016 (UTC)

Does it take much time? --Salih-rock (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 09:06, 16 September 2016 (UTC).
@Salih-rock: In response to your first question: No, your edits, logs, and other recorded activity will not be lost when your account is renamed. That is the point of renaming a user account - to preserve all contributions and relabel them under a new name.
For your second question, that depends on the problem and how quickly the developers are able to fix it. It is unfortunately out of our control. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 13:49, 16 September 2016 (UTC)

Hi, I am not trying to take someone else's username. I was asked to change my username. I thought no one had that username, I am very confused, and I don't understand how I change my username. How do I change my username? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nissenrevyen (talk) 10:47, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

@Nissenrevyen: To change your username, you need to file a request here on this page, and once a global renamer approves of it, they will rename the account for you. The username you chose, "Nanna123", is already in use by someone else. You can check by using the page Special:CentralAuth. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 11:23, 19 September 2016 (UTC)

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications


Please notify the target user of the request. Since there doesn't seem to be a home wiki, it may be necessary to notify on all wikis.—cyberpower ChatHello! 12:12, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
I am the main user behind this sock-puppet account (as indicated on the French user page), and the Gabe1290 account is used mainly on the French Wiki. IRL, I am a school teacher in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, and the sock-puppet account was created to try to separate the work I do with students from the other stuff I do on Wikipedia. GastelEtzwane (talk) 11:13, 25 August 2016 (UTC)

Myriad Pro@global

Those edits do not appear to be minor to me. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 23:17, 15 August 2016 (UTC)
So does this mean the username is not available? Myriad Pro (talk) 00:15, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
I would say it is not possible, although a second opinion from another global renamer would be welcome. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 00:43, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Drive-by comment. The "branch" account names, taken into context of other contributions, seem minor. Its 2 page creations are blanked. The commons uploads are not used anywhere. Pyrusca (talk) 20:01, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
That's my thinking. Is there a verdict from the Global Renamers? Myriad Pro (talk) 16:15, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
Sorry. I consider the edits significant. Please pick another name.—cyberpower ChatHello! 12:02, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
Even though it has effectively no real page creations and (as previously mentioned) it's commons uploads aren't actually used? Could I have the username on the wikis where it wasn't used, or does it not work like that?Myriad Pro (talk) 22:44, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
@Myriad Pro: No: usernames are global, thus if a username exists on one wiki, it is considered to be taken on all wikis. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 22:46, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
If I may ask, why are these edits considered significant? Myriad Pro (talk) 18:50, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
A good deal of those edits were created articles or major rewrites.—cyberpower ChatHello! 18:52, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
However, as Pyrusca said, the 2 page creations have since been blanked. Myriad Pro (talk) 21:32, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
Only one page got blanked, I stand by my decision.—cyberpower ChatHello! 21:53, 1 September 2016 (UTC)
