Reason: (Change old name to the my reel name) --PediAki (talk) 04:58, 1 January 2018
@PediAki: I don't think we can accept this request, because you blocked in en.wiki because you made damage and disruption there, so please ask sysops to unblock you, then come back again --Alaa :)..! 20:22, 1 January 2018 (UTC)
Reason: Need to claim that name to unify all my forum handles, my current username is inappropriate and does not help in recognizing any edits I made.
Also the pre-existing User has no edits only a global account.
--Astral Destroyer (talk) 19:25, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
Not done as mentioned here "User who requests usurpation must have at least 400 edits or be an administrator on some Wikimedia project.". You've less than 100 edits! --Alaa :)..! 16:02, 4 January 2018 (UTC)
Reason: correct pronunciation - not to be continually confused with that of the sets of building blocks of the same name, and to refer to and promote Czech wiki community.  User asked me for renaming, but because of usurpation I forward it to the stewards. --JAn Dudík (talk) 14:05, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
Thanks @JAn Dudík: can you ask the user to sign here (because the user has more than 20000 edits) so I would be sure that the user sure 100% from this request? Also to note the user that it'll be in capital letter (Czeva) not (czeva) --Alaa :)..! 12:53, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, the capital letter was intended, the low-case ones might have been just typos.--Cheva (talk) 21:05, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
On hold until 11 Jan 2018 --Alaa :)..! 21:12, 12 December 2017 (UTC)
Hi, will you give me some information about the procedure, please? Thanks. --Cheva (talk) 07:59, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
Comment request moved from simple rename requests. Left a message on Death Eater's talk page on en.wikipedia as all requirements have been met here. --Atcovi(Talk - Contribs) 17:02, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
@Atcovi: I don't know so much about criteria, so thanks moving my request here. Please look at this facebook post (in Hindi), someone troll me with my real name. So for privacy matters, I don't want to continue with my real username.--Prateekmalviya20 (talk) 11:30, 6 January 2018 (UTC)
On hold until 5 Feb --Alaa :)..! 12:19, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
Comment I want to withdraw my request because Death Eater already exists & I don't aware about that.--Prateekmalviya20 (talk) 12:51, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
Request withdrawn--Alaa :)..! 14:37, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
Reason: I don't know if it is possible to respond positively to my request, but this seems to be the most appropriate procedure. I'm looking for access to the pseudo Lebot, for a future bot. This username is blocked in the English community for 10 years because the person behind this username was not a bot. Thank you in advance.
@Hedda Gabler (eski): we can't merge accounts. We can change Hedda Gabler to Hedda Gabler (usurped) then change Hedda Gabler (eski) to Hedda Gabler. So if you need us to do that sign by Hedda Gabler account under your request --Alaa :)..! 19:06, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
The trwiki account had a different password than the other accounts. @Hedda Gabler (eski): can you direct a trwiki admin who knew you here? We could also ask on Phabricator if they can match the email address used on both the ~trwiki account and the main Hedda Gabler account. – Ajraddatz (talk) 00:22, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
Comment As a sysop on trwiki, I guarantee that the two accounts of concern (Hedda Gabler (eski) & Hedda Gabler) are used by the same person. This usurpation request in particular, approved by local bureaucrats, support this view as well. --Superyetkin (talk) 16:25, 11 January 2018 (UTC)
Reason: I'm sikander on Twitter and Facebook and would love to carry that over to Wikimedia. For some reason I was unable to register sikander in 2009 and went with Siqbal instead. A change would be fantastic. Thank you!
@Siqbal:--sorry, the account, Sikander, contains valid edits on the fr.wikipedia, and thus is not eligible for usurpation. Please choose another username. --Atcovi(Talk - Contribs) 02:29, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
@Atcovi:--Yes, I saw that account, but it has had no activity for more than 10 years. Last edit by that account was 2 July 2007. Does that make a difference? Siqbal (talk) 14:07, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
Unfortunately, no. Although inactive, the account still holds important edits to itself. --Atcovi(Talk - Contribs) 14:10, 14 December 2017 (UTC)
@Atcovi: what is the important edits here :/ I saw edits between (-22 to +41) just! --Alaa :)..! 14:08, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
Few from several as I have found: 1, 2, 3. All of these changes are present today on those fr.wikipedia articles, this making the account entitled to these edits. --Atcovi(Talk - Contribs) 16:15, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
@Atcovi: Thanks. I saw all of them but Is it so important to prevent active user (+7000 edits) from take this name? Also the user inactive since more than 10 years! I prefer to accept this request --Alaa :)..! 17:29, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
Reason: I am requesting a rename for a doppelgänger account that reflects a common misspelling of my username. The existing Ahect account was registered in 2009 on zhwiki and has 0 edits. Ahect notified on meta and zhwiki. --Ahecht (TALK PAGE) 22:53, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
@Ahecht: why you put the old name as "Ahect~enwiki"? --Alaa :)..! 23:48, 21 December 2017 (UTC)
@Alaa: I am trying to create an alternate account under "Ahect" since it is a common misspelling of my username (per en:Wikipedia:Sock_puppetry#Legitimate_uses), but since that name was not available I temporarily created it at "Ahect~enwiki" so that it could be moved to "Ahect" once that account is usurped. I am not trying to rename my main Ahecht account. -Ahecht (TALK PAGE) 14:33, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
Reason: For many years I used my username "Scoid" in several wikipedias, wikidata and commons. Then I had trouble to login into those projects, changing between them and used a new username "Scoid_d". It might have been a cookie issue. Both usernames "Scoid" and "Scoid_d" I'd like to merge to one for my convenience.
Reason: My current username translates to Russian as 'Пацифист' and it's how my colleagues call me. So, Пацифистis notified about this request, I have around 4 thouthand edits. Пацифист has only 2 deleted edits.

@Alaa: Hi Alaa, I'm an administrator at the Portuguese Wikipédia, and member of the Wikimedia Portuguese Chapter. I'm currently working with Profª Isabel Lousada in the next art+fem event. Upon starting her work with us, she found that someone, apparetly by mistake, while trying to create an article about her, created instead an username, who then posted information about her first in the userpage, then in a proper article in main space. She would like to reclaim her identity back. Is that possible?--- DarwinAhoy! 19:32, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
Hello @DarwIn:. Thanks for this clarification. we can change (Isabel Cruz Lousada) to (Isabel Lousada) -particularly, all of (Isabel Lousada) edits on Isabel Lousada on pt.wikipedia, okay? --Alaa :)..! 20:10, 29 January 2018 (UTC)
@Alaa: Yes, that would be perfect. Thank you very much for your understanding. If some ID proof is needed, Profª Isabel Lousada would be pleased to provide.--- DarwinAhoy! 20:52, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

Reason: Requesting usurp. I realized that there wasn't an en-wiki user named Vermont (my IRC nick) and tried to register, and it was denied saying it already existed. There was a user on sv-wiki named Vermont who made some beneficial edits, but was indefinitely blocked in 2010 for sockpuppetry. Adotchar (talk) 00:12, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
Considering the indef block for sockpuppetry of target username I think the request can be accepted. --Vituzzu (talk) 00:15, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
Agreed, I've started the rename.—CYBERPOWER(Chat) 01:14, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
