@K6ka: please rename my account to my real name i am ready for paying amount for rename my account.(Sher Aziz (talk) 11:00, 4 January 2017 (UTC)).

  Not done You're still blocked on multiple wikis for sockpuppetry, which is a serious breach of trust, serious enough to make declining this request a no-brainer. Also, we will not accept any sum of money to rename your account. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 13:47, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

  Done, account renamed. Even though the username was similar to the existing accounts MGCA and Mg ca, the distinction with both is quite clear. Additionally, the account MGCA has only done 1 edit which has been reverted, the account Mg ca has never edited. Savhñ 15:42, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

@Bender Bending Rodríguez: Sorry, that username also cannot be usurped. They have 64 edits and their edits were not immediately reverted or deleted. We can only usurp usernames that have made no significant edits (e.g. if their only edits have been unimportant edits to their userpage), or have made only edits that were immediately reverted and/or deleted. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 17:08, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

Вик Ретлхед@mkwiki

Hi Вик Ретлхед. Are you trying to merge the two accounts together? Please note that it is not currently possible to merge accounts, as the SUL merge tool brought up too many problems during development and isn't expected to be available anytime soon. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 00:03, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
If that's not possible, how about usurpation of the Retrohead account and leaving those three edits I made from the Retrohead account as IP adress?--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 19:02, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
@Вик Ретлхед and Retrohead: I can work some magic on this one. I'll rename the existing Retrohead account to Retrohead (usurped), rename Вик Ретлхед to Retrohead, and then merge the individual enwiki account back to the new Retrohead SUL. I just need to confirm that you are using the same password for both accounts first (I don't need to know what it is obviously, just that it is the same) – Ajraddatz (talk) 01:06, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
It's the same password, and the same guy (me). Those three edits from the Retrohead account on the Macedonian wiki were mistakenly done as I though the accounts were merged on all Wikis, not just the English one. No need for Retrohead (usurped), just leave the IP address there and have the Вик Ретлхед edits transferred to Retrohead. Please be aware that this operation is only for the Macedonian wiki edition. The English is fine, no need for changes there.--Вик Ретлхед (talk) 12:24, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
@Вик Ретлхед and Retrohead: Done. Please access mk:Special:MergeAccount at your earliest convenience while logged in to merge your global account. Please let us know if you encounter any issue. Savhñ 16:18, 14 January 2017 (UTC)


User has been notified in their home wiki. Also verifying that request to change this account from Erbigon → to BingoBot is valid. --Erbigon (talk) 20:24, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
Unfortunately, that account has enough edits that it cannot be usurped without the permission of the owner. Given that they haven't logged in in at least two years, that seems unlikely to get. – Ajraddatz (talk) 22:30, 17 January 2017 (UTC)
