Simple rename requests


  Not done @Davidwbarratt: The username "🍠" is not allowed to prevent confusing or spoofed usernames: Contains unassigned character "🍠" (U+1F360) — per your home Wikipedia's username policy. So please choose another username. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:50, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Tracked in Phabricator:
task T195661 resolved
  •   Question: I noticed that currently Horcrux is blocked on Commons. Would this block remain? --Horcrux92 (talk) 13:54, 26 May 2018 (UTC)
    @Horcrux92: No, during usurpation block of Horcrux will be transferred to Horcrux (usurped). So it will not be on your account. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:09, 26 May 2018 (UTC)
    @Horcrux92: as 1997kB said. So as you have more than 100K edits, we need sysadmin help, so I'll open ticket on the phabricator --Alaa :)..! 14:12, 26 May 2018 (UTC)
    Ok, thanks. --Horcrux92 (talk) 14:13, 26 May 2018 (UTC)

@علاء: Looks like they registered target username before request. So should we do usurpation now? as they have less than 400 edits, but it looks like they had a misunderstanding. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 19:06, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
@Robert Hesen: As you said that you have access to both accounts. So please confirm by signing below my comment using Robynosk account. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 12:28, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

@Ignacio.torres:: did you try recovering your old account using any of those email addresses? — Yerpo Eh? 05:34, 3 June 2018 (UTC)
@Yerpo:: I tried several of them. There is a limit of one recovery every 24h which makes the process cumbersome. — Ignacio.torres Eh? 12:32, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
@Ignacio.torres:: perhaps somebody else will come up with a more elegant solution, but for now, I can only advise you to go through the regular process of usurpation, using en:Template:Usurpation requested on en:User talk:Itorres. After a week, during which there will be no protest from the old account (since it belongs to you as well), it will be renamed away. Renamers don't have access to logs and login details, so providing those data wouldn't help. — Yerpo Eh? 16:02, 6 June 2018 (UTC)
@Yerpo:: Yes, let's follow the regular process. Thanks a lot for your support — Ignacio.torres Eh? 18:07, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
  Not done @Ignacio.torres: you should have 400 edits or more for usurpation, and you have less than 10 edits! @Yerpo: the regular process of usurpation: 400 edits or more, notify the new name and waiting for 1 month. Best --Alaa :)..! 22:57, 8 June 2018 (UTC)
@علاء:: And 4 of them are in this request 🤦. I'll come back when I have 404, it will be quite HTTPish. Thanks! — Ignacio.torres (talk) 14:00, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

  On hold until 29 June, 2018. Target user notified. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:48, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
So what happens tomorrow? Is there a way to automatically edit all my talk signatures across wikis? --J. E. C. E. (talk) 20:04, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
@J. E. C. E.: No signatures can't be changed, but user page, talk and contributions will be moved to new name. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 00:59, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
So I have to do it manually, oh well. I wish there was a sort of find-and-replace function that searches the full code in a wiki. That feature doesn't already exist as a gadget or something? --J. E. C. E. (talk) 02:38, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
@J. E. C. E.: You don't need to that, when someone will click on your old sign, they will be automatically forwarded to your new userpage or talk. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:41, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, I know, but I have my reasons. I'll start here (though in this section I'll just change the background links to avoid confusion). I plan to request that those redirects be deleted too once I finish. Thanks! --JECE (talk) 13:14, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
