@Marseillaise2: The chosen username is too similar to existing usernames: PlatinumRose and Platinum-rose. Please choose another one. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:44, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
@1997kB: Can I go with Merrystar then please? Marseillaise2 (talk) 02:59, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

Thank you! Merrystar (talk) 03:08, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

@1997kB: I'm sorry to say this, but I need to have my name changed back to Marseillaise2, please. Someone brought up concerns that my new name might be seen as impersonating Merrystar, a FANDOM staff member. So I'd rather avoid any potential trouble and go back to my old name, please. Merrystar (talk) 19:15, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

@Merrystar: It is better to use your username "Bugambilia" on the test wiki, or else people may thought you are the alternative account of Marseillaise on Wikimedia. SA 13 Bro (talk) 19:30, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
Okay, I'll see if I can change my name on the test wiki. Merrystar (talk) 19:36, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
@Merryster: Please file a new request. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 20:02, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
@Merrystar: ‐‐1997kB (talk) 20:03, 28 September 2018 (UTC)


@Merrystar: Please choose some other name, because it can be connected as Marseillaise‎'s second account, which is not the case here, and Bugambilia is also registered, so you can't choose that. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 20:25, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

I'll take Excoriation then, please. Merrystar (talk) 20:28, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

@Marshmallych: Last time you requested for vanishing and day after that you requested to revert it. I am little confused that why you reversed last renaming? And also are you sure this time? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 06:48, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
And as you are requesting not to leave redirect, it will break your old sign, which was the reason you provided to last time, so are you okay with this now? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 07:11, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

@Luis Felipe Tapia Yanca: We unfortunately cannot rename you on only one wiki. Renames are global, so your username would have to change on all wikis. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 18:24, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Rufet Turkmen

Hello @TonyBallioni: before start the rename process, I noticed that there's around 10 pages linked to Turkmen account in enwiki and some of them related to the sock issue, so if we change Rufet Turkmen to Turkmen then it'll be linked to all this sock issue, so can you update all of this page to be linked to user:Turkmen (usurped), then we can complete this request? --Alaa :)..! 07:43, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
Hello, علاء, nothing needs to be done on en because the account is a sock and not a master. You should be good to go from that perspective. TonyBallioni (talk) 12:08, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Tracked in Phabricator:
task T204242 resolved
@Abalg: We can rename Abalg~commonswiki@commonswiki to Abalg@commonswiki locally, but after that you need password to unify accounts.
@JSutherland (WMF): Is password reset for this possible? Looks like same user to me. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 09:14, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
@JSutherland (WMF): It would be very great! How can I prove I'm the both account's owner? --Abalg (talk) 11:47, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
I can bring this evidence : I put this link pointing to my old account Abalg-Commons on my personal page Abalg:fr in July 14, 2007. (There is also a Commons account Abalg43 which I do not use anymore, but it's an other story) --Abalg (talk) 12:16, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
Filed phab task. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:09, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
The same evidence in the opposite direction, I put this link to my main account User-fr:Abalg on my old commons account Abalg~commonswiki page, when it was created in July 14, 2007. I hope my case is under good skies. Cordially. --Abalg (talk) 09:36, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
Hello Abalg - could you please email ca from the email address belonging to your account? Merci ! Joe Sutherland (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 21:16, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
I did it. Thank you. --Abalg (talk) 02:03, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks to Joe Sutherland, I can use my Abalg~Commons account. Now, Is it possible to merge this account with my Abalg global acount? And How can I do? Regards --Abalg~commonswiki (talk) 19:59, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
@علاء: Can you please rename Abalg~commonswiki@commonswiki to Abalg@commonswiki, now they have access to both accounts. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 20:14, 20 September 2018 (UTC)
@1997kB: done now, please ask the user to enter commons by both account and/or by Special:MergeAccount, then if it succeed please close this request. Best, and sorry for the late replay --Alaa :)..! 19:38, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
@Abalg: Please go to Special:MergeAccount and complete the merge. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:07, 23 September 2018 (UTC)
Thanks a lot to all of you (@1997kB:, @علاء: and @JSutherland (WMF):) for your work. The merge is efficient. Only the recent Abalg Commons contribution and check list is not viewable anymore. But it was only 5 images on contribution list and a little bit more on check list. It suits me perfectly. Have a good day/night. --Abalg (talk) 12:13, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

I had actually filed this under "Simple Requests", but it somehow ended up in this section. So that's why I hadn't read that page before. Marseillaise2 (talk) 19:44, 27 September 2018 (UTC)
