  Not done @SuperSucker: We can not rename while you are blocked. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 16:46, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
@1997kB: I just wrote at Talk page per request. SuperSucker (talk) 17:01, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
@1997kB: While the given "venue" was idle, may I suggest this renaming anyway since my present username remains somewhat objectively inappropriate against the nature of the given topic (sensible, sensitive, delicate.. difficult to choose the right adjective) I mostly upload files about ('suicide prevention' and such)? Afterall, this is my stated reason for the username change.. "less communicative and funny". I guess it's ok the way it is. And thanks, for your collaboration.

@Touzrimounir: The name TOUMOU is too similar to existing names (Toumou). Please select a different name. Thanks. Nihlus 23:25, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
@Nihlus:   Done --Alaa :)..! 23:26, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
@علاء: Why? Nihlus 23:27, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
@Nihlus: It's done before your comment (we click at the same time). Also (Toumou) last edit on 2009 in frwiki (16 edits, only 1 edit in article namespace), and (Touzrimounir) is trusted user with more than 45K edits, so why not?! --Alaa :)..! 23:29, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
Because anti-spoof exists for a reason, and overriding each other is irritating. Nihlus 23:31, 22 November 2018 (UTC)


@RBJ~nlwiki: Please choose another username since there's already an account with RBJ now and isn't eligible for usurpation. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 05:28, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
@1997kB: That's to bad, is R.B.J. a viable option? RBJ~nlwiki (talk) 10:39, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
@RBJ~nlwiki: I think that's not a good choice as there are three similar accounts: RBJ, R B J, Rbj and one of them is active, and since account are global, you two could be confused same. So please choose another one. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:08, 15 November 2018 (UTC)

I'm leaning towards declining this as it is a bot account, which really shouldn't be renamed unless absolutely necessary. Is the information on the bot's userpage not enough to inform others that you run the bot? Nihlus 00:24, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
Yes. It is not enough for some users. Zoranzoki21 (talk) 00:38, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
Can you provide links to examples showing that? sr:Википедија:Ботови doesn't mention anything about required bot names. Nihlus 00:40, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

sr:Википедија:Ботови doesn't mention anything about required bot names, but, much is easier to username of by bot be Zoranzoki21-Bot. Zoranzoki21 (talk) 18:57, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
  Not done. Sorry, with no pressing reason to perform this rename, I won't process it, as explained above. Nihlus 19:28, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

Lori Regional Library

@Lori Regional Library: first, please notify the existing user with this name that you wish to usurp their username, or choose a different name that isn't taken yet. — Yerpo Eh? 18:05, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
@Lori Regional Library: Please choose another username, you are not eligible for usurption. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:32, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

task T206730 resolved
  On hold Until 11 November. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:40, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
  Done The progress. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 05:26, 13 November 2018 (UTC)


@Dvenwu: Your account is not eligible for usurpation due to not being an established account. Please ask for a different name that is not taken or wait until you have edited more. Nihlus 01:08, 13 November 2018 (UTC)


  •   On hold until 12 November. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:11, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
  • @Nihlus: Yes I saw that, but if they gonna use it as doppelganger account, what's the problem? @Amitie 10g: Are your intentions is to use that account for any type of editing, specifically on commons? because doppelganger accounts aren't used for editing. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 10:20, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
  • The problem is that they are indefinitely blocked on a project and would be seemingly making another account that would not be blocked. I would only feel comfortable doing this if the Commons community approved it (with or without blocking the doppelganger account). Nihlus 10:34, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
  • @1997kB and Nihlus: Actually, my intentios is to avoid impersonation (specially from some globally blocked user), so, just block the account at Commons, as I'll not use it for editing in any projects (except Meta for my doppelganger user account). --Amitie 10g (talk) 14:09, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
  • As stated above, I would only feel comfortable doing this if the Commons community approved it. I suggest you start by bringing it to their attention first; otherwise it may be seen as sockpuppeting. Nihlus 14:31, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
@Nihlus and Amitie 10g: Posted at c:COM:AN. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:00, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
Just for the record, I made a similar request some time ago and had it rejected because I am too blocked indefinitely on the English Wikipedia. --{{subst:User:Fire in the Hole/sign}} 22:52, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
As I mentioned, the purpose of this request is for avoiding impersonation. So, the doppelganger account should be blocked at Commons. --Amitie 10g (talk) 20:58, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
BTW, are you aware that account name which previously existed (like here) requires antispoof-override now? — regards, Revi 14:40, 27 October 2018 (UTC)
  Done @Amitie 10g: and as you are not able to remove anti-spoof conflict during signing up that username, you can request for creation here. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 12:28, 14 November 2018 (UTC)


  Not done. You do not qualify for usurpation as you do not have an established account. Feel free to request this in the future when you have edited more. Nihlus 02:33, 15 November 2018 (UTC)


@Amitie 10g: I don't see any solid reason to process this request, as you have already requested for Davod account, why you need this one? and if they are inactive then it's not gonna cause any problems to you. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:26, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

@Munja12: Since the account Munja have email address attached, so you should try resetting password using this page. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 10:39, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
While I was leaving I scrambled email as well. Not possible to access it. --Munja12 (talk) 11:57, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
  Not done @Munja12: Sorry, we can't perform this usurpation because, a) There's no way to confirm it was your account. b) It's blocked on hrwiki. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:23, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
