  Not done. Indefblock on itwiki for block evasion. Rename could be used to conceal bad conduct which is not allowed per policy. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:52, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

Bad faith name I made

I am not sure that the new name is much better. Ruslik (talk) 17:49, 7 August 2017 (UTC)
It's generic and doesn't insult anyone, not sure how it's equally bad. Would you assume that the second name is in bad faith? It's not a conventional name but it doesn't offend anyone. --2405:4800:1484:A49A:9DF0:20A3:F419:F27 22:17, 7 August 2017 (UTC) (Donald Trung)
  Not done account hidden. Now it's time for you to forget wiki. --Vituzzu (talk) 22:53, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

Antero de Quintal

I have moved the vandal account to Vandal account 001 and created a dummy account under Antero de Quintal to prevent further impersonation, but the section "Previous global account changes" on Special:CentralAuth still says I've locked Antero de Quintal (the old username of JMagalhães) as «Vandalism-only account», even though the only account that is in fact locked is Vandal account 001. @Ajraddatz:, @MarcoAurelio: what should we do now? I'm sorry if I've messed something up. Defender (talk) 04:06, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
Probably because the centralauth log does not update with renames. The Antero de Quintal account is not locked. Maybe we should ask at Phab that Special:Log/globalauth should also update when renaming an account. —MarcoAurelio 09:52, 8 July 2017 (UTC)
I suggest that after renaming a user, future anonymous users should not be able to create an account using the old username, unless if "it would be marked as available" while renaming or similar, or if it would be created by a registered, autoconfirmed user. That way this case would have been prevented. Poyekhali (talk) 05:51, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
Maybe T85023 and T72379 will be of help? --Terra  (talk) 01:39, 17 July 2017 (UTC)
  Not done the account locked --Alaa :)..! 13:54, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

--Fairbrianchen (talk) 12:46, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

  Not done. Unfortunately the requested username has a substantial edit count that prevents usurpation. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:42, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

Darwinius

  On hold. Given the edit count both on Commons and on ptwiki, a sysadmin will need to review this request before we proceed. I am going to file a task on phabricator. RadiX 02:50, 12 August 2017 (UTC)
@RadiX: Thanks! Note: Without leaving a redirect, please.--- Darwin Ahoy! 00:22, 17 August 2017 (UTC)
@Darwinius: Ok. However global renames are stuck at this moment so that we'll have to wait until this task is solved. RadiX 01:38, 17 August 2017 (UTC)
  Done. Global rename has been successfully completed. RadiX 10:54, 22 August 2017 (UTC)
