Simple rename requests


@PinkMonkeyBird: Is this a request for courtesy vanishing? I looked over your edits and you don't seem to be eligible for that option. I can rename you to "JabaJavaJaka", or you can simply stop using this account, or you can choose to do both. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 21:23, 1 October 2017 (UTC)
@K6ka: Yeah, courtesy vanishing looks good, if that's just a rename then do that please. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by PinkMonkeyBird (talk)

@Yelysavet: The problem here that you blocked in ruwiki due to use sock puppetry! so we can't change your name. I think you should request to unblock you in ruwiki! --Alaa :)..! 17:28, 18 October 2017 (UTC)

Just a small note for clarification: the message "User: Geordie ... Wikipedia has no article with this name ..." means only that the user hasn't created their user page (yet), and doesn't imply availability. But that doesn't matter because the user is not active, so the name can be usurped in any case. — Yerpo Eh? 11:02, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

علاء: I don't believe the account is eligible for usurpation--appears to have valid edits on fr.wikipedia. But to check with a renamer, I'm pinging علاء for discussion. It's been about seven days now--I think the user would like a response to his request for usurpation. Thanks. Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 14:36, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

@Jdcounselling and Dr.khatmando: You realize that we cannot merge the two accounts, correct? What you are asking for right now would move the "Jdcounselling" username to "Dr.khatmando" and "Dr.khatmando" to something like "Dr.khatmando (usurped)". They would remain two separate user accounts. Please confirm whether this is what you intended. Ks0stm (TCGE) 15:28, 12 July 2017 (UTC)
Ks0stm Thank you for your guidance. Yes I note that two accounts cannot be merged. Before you action this. Can I confirm that the account Dr.khatmando would have at least the join Wikipedia date changed to that of the earlier account Jdcounselling, and anything thereafter I do on Wikipedia associated with Dr.Khatmando (of course if I was logged in under this account)? My apologies for being tedious. I've some mild dispraxia and dyslexia so I wan't to be sure I'm asking for something to be done in the "direction" I want in my mind, if that makes sense? Dr.khatmando (talk) 23:34, 12 July 2017 (UTC)
@Dr.khatmando and Jdcounselling: can you explain? --Alaa :)..! 16:06, 22 August 2017 (UTC)
Sorry for my tardiness. I would like to know if after moving the account Jdcounselling to Dr.khatmando, the edit statistics and join date of the Jdcounselling account would be associated with the Dr.khatmando account. Cheers, Dr.khatmando (talk) 01:18, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
@Dr.khatmando: yes of course, the logs of Jdcounselling name well be moved to Dr.khatmando name, can we start the rename process now? --Alaa :)..! 08:46, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
My apologies Alaa for my tardiness. Yes please start the process. I do appreciate your patience and attention to my request. Warm regards Dr.khatmando (talk) 11:16, 20 September 2017 (UTC)
@Dr.khatmando: the vast majority of your live edits are on the Dr.khatmando account. You can simply redirect the user and talk pages of your Jdcounselling account to the pages of Dr.khatmando if you wish them to be associated. – Ajraddatz (talk) 17:42, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

The target account seems to have edits that are still available at zh.wikipedia, thus making the target account not eligible for usurpation. Is it possible you can chose another target account? Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 11:00, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
No problem if it's not possible --Vadp (talk) 11:26, 24 October 2017 (UTC)
  Not done Procedural close. User was renamed to Vаdiм on 25 October 2017. Nihlus 02:59, 27 October 2017 (UTC)


@GammaRadiator: The username you have requested isn't eligible for usurpation; they have over 50 edits and they are not insignificant. Please pick a new name. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 02:33, 27 October 2017 (UTC)
