  Not done: @Floemuc: Sorry, but Floe is currently taken and unlikely to be a candidate for usurpation due to the 700+ edits on the Russian Wikipedia. Your best bet would be to choose another username or convince the current owner of Floe to agree to voluntary usurpation. Ks0stm (TCGE) 15:14, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

@Ks0stm: OK, thanks, didn't find the Russian guy. Request could be deleted, I guess. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Floemuc (talk) 18:04, 12 July 2017‎ (UTC)

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications


Account merge is not possible, but in this case what I can do is to rename BearT~commonswiki to BearT locally so you can later access Special:MergeAccount. I'll do that shortly. —MarcoAurelio 14:33, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
@BearT: Please access Special:MergeAccount to unify your commonswiki account. —MarcoAurelio 14:36, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
Thank you. The BearT account is now connected with commons and all sites it has previously been connected to. --BearT (talk) 16:56, 2 July 2017 (UTC)
I am so glad to hear that everything is solved :) Regards, —MarcoAurelio 17:02, 2 July 2017 (UTC)

The renaming process of 烈羽 to FireFeather was suspended because of the failure of renaming at Could any stewards please have a look to this. --J.Wong 15:36, 6 July 2017 (UTC)
@Wong128hk: after 2-3 hours the renaming process will restart it again and complete, so we can't do anything now we must just wait, and if it's not fixed after 3 hours I'll send to the developers in the phabricator. Thanks --Alaa :)..! 15:39, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

  Not done the user is blocked in main wiki until Nov. 2017! --Alaa :)..! 09:49, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
@Alaa: Excuse me, sir. See the Special:CentralAuth/Idh0854. My home wiki (plus mark) is english wikipedia. And as I said, this request is for "removes any personal informations in my account name". Also, I don't want to contribute any wikimedia project anymore and I hope to leave the all wikimedia project, because I don't want no more trouble some people in ko community. So, please change the my account name, sir. Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 18:22, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
Some puppert account in ko wiki already know that this account have my personal information. I don't want bully (and stalking on Social Network) by puppert account no more, really. Please. Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 18:32, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
At first see this Courtesy vanishing if you wanna stop editing and abandon your account --Alaa :)..! 19:12, 28 May 2017 (UTC)
@Alaa: I know that means of Courtesy vanishing. But I don't know, "even later", I whether I really want to leave or not in wikimedia project, without ko wikipedia. (Now, I'm tired of contributing wikipedia.) And already I said, I want to remove the my personal informations in this account name and I don't want bully (and stalking on Social Network) by puppet account any more. So I really need to changes of user name. I believe you understand what I said, sir. And sorry for my poor english. Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 07:56, 29 May 2017 (UTC)
@Alaa: Plus, you said, "until 21 May" before "notdone". But I am blocked in ko wikipedia since that time. Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 07:00, 31 May 2017 (UTC)
I’m still waiting for a reply. Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 11:20, 1 June 2017 (UTC)
@Idh0854: sorry for late in replay, the problem now that your request need a sysadmin or at least a steward to deal with it, because you have more than 50,000 edits we as global renames can't change it, please send to stewards in RC channel. Thanks --Alaa :)..! 03:15, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
@Alaa: Thanks for your answer. I visit to IRC wikimedia-stewards channel as you are saying. I asked one question, but nobody answered. How can I do when there is no answer? Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 15:55, 3 June 2017 (UTC)
@Legoktm and Hoo man: can you help here? --Alaa :)..! 15:57, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

I am more concerned about the local block and it's compatibility with the global rename policy on not allowing renames to hide bad behaviour. Block at kowiki seems to be based on Wikipedia:Etiquette. If we're confortable with the rename, then I can do it. —MarcoAurelio 09:43, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

@MarcoAurelio: you can see what the user said above about the local block, that he not wanna work again in kowiki. At the first time when the user request to change his name he's not blocked in kowiki, but before few days of preform this request he blocked so I refuse the request but the user said some convincing things --Alaa :)..! 11:49, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

If username change is possible, please could you not move my user pages in all wikimedia projects, if possible? I don't want korean puppets to know this user name change. Aleady I delete the most my user pages of wikimedia projects, except for meta wiki, english wikipedia, and korean projects. (This also I will ask sysops of this extra wikis to delete, not move, soon.) It means that I don't want record the history logs of arctles. (For user log, unlike histories of user pages, user log is not visible I think.) Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 13:19, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

I'll be having busy days again so I can not take care of this; any steward or global renamer should feel free to action this request. —MarcoAurelio 15:56, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio: Thanks for your answer. I understand, so I will be waiting for the action. And I am sorry for my additional request. Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 17:32, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
@Idh0854: when we change the name, we changed it globally and we can't exclude pages/talk pages in any wiki, so ..? --Alaa :)..! 12:10, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
@Alaa: Is it possible that it request for remove the all user pages (include talk pages and subpages) of all wikis in meta wiki? I don't finished it because of some wikis can't remove the user talk page. (I will request for undelete of talk pages that contains at least one content does not contain only template welcome at all wikis after the username change.) Thanks. --Idh0854 (talk) 16:15, 20 June 2017 (UTC)
@Idh0854: you can ask about that here. --Alaa :)..! 03:25, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
@Alaa: Always thanks for your help. :) --Idh0854 (talk) 14:40, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
A better place is Synchbot. That bot can do that all at once. —MarcoAurelio 10:59, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

@Idh0854: put a request here as MarcoAurelio mentioned, after this told me to coordinate with sysadmin to change your name. --Alaa :)..! 16:12, 23 June 2017 (UTC)

Synchbot deleted most of the user pages and the CSS/JS subpages. There are a few pages left to delete manually: the global user page (which Synchbot doesn't delete), user page on Commons (which Synchbot skipped due to a local block history), talk pages (which are outside Synchbot's remit), and a few non-crosswiki subpages. —Pathoschild 01:43, 01 July 2017 (UTC)
@Pathoschild: Thanks, so @MarcoAurelio: can you delete the remaining one? --Alaa :)..! 10:22, 1 July 2017 (UTC)
I see that most of those left are talk pages and we do not usually delete talk pages (that's why Pathoschild skipped them). You can ask Synchbot to blank them. —MarcoAurelio 13:28, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

@Pathoschild: can you blank them? --Alaa :)..! 15:04, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

Yes, blanking them is fine. Idh0854 just needs to post a request at Synchbot and I'll do it soon. —Pathoschild 15:36, 01 July 2017 (UTC)

@Alaa, Marco: I'm sorry for keeping you waiting. I was so busy last week. If possible, change the my username. Always really thanks for help. --Idh0854 (talk) 05:33, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

We're on it. —MarcoAurelio 08:26, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Min Ga

I just see I need to second this. I can log in with two different identities. But in reality these two accounts are one. --Roxedl (talk) 10:21, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
I will usurp your Roxedl account and then rename Min Ga to Roxedl. I, however, noticed that you have 39 edits under Roxedl account on Commons. I can move back your old Roxedl account on Commons, so that you can merge it with your newly renamed Min Ga account. Do you want this? Ruslik (talk) 20:37, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for your answer. Yes, this sounds fine. --Min Ga (talk) 11:13, 23 July 2017 (UTC)
