@屈原蟲: It appears the simplified version of the name is already taken 虫虫飞. Is there another name you would like? Nihlus 13:03, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
@Nihlus:Since simplified version虫虫飞have no contribution for many years, but I like the username 蟲蟲飛 very much, could use this user name?I have no idea to have another name since all names i could think are already takend--屈原蟲talk) 13:09, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
@屈原蟲: If the name already exists, we need to wait a full month in order to give the account holder a chance to respond if they would like to keep their name. We can wait for that, or you can pick a name that is not currently in use to be processed now. Nihlus 13:11, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
@Nihlus:I can wait. Thank you for your help!--屈原蟲talk) 13:13, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
@蟲蟲飛:   Done. Nevermind, I just went ahead and processed it for you. Let me know if you need anything else. Nihlus 13:22, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

Maisondesbatisseurs, the requested username is promotional. Use of a company, group, or organization as a username is not permitted under the English Wikipedia username policy. Please pick a new name. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 22:34, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
@Maisondesbatisseurs: Apologies, but such usernames are not allowed, so please choose another one. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:59, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
Remember usernames are acceptable if they contain a company or group name but are clearly intended to denote an individual person, such as "Mark at WidgetsUSA", "Jack Smith at the XY Foundation", "WidgetFan87", etc. So maybe you wanna consider something like that. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:26, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the advice! Maisondesbatisseurs (talk) 15:46, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
@Maisondesbatisseurs: So can we close the request or you still want to be renamed? If yes, then please reply with your new username choice. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 16:19, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes we can close if you don't mind. Maisondesbatisseurs (talk) 13:34, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

@Zola~enwiki: Zola accounts has ~100 edits which is barrier to usurption, so please choose another username. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:56, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
@Keegan (WMF): Looks like it has been discussed before. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:15, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
@Keegan (WMF): @1997kB:The username is no longer being used by this person, and since I was the original owner I would like it back. I do not think this is unreasonable as the name was taken from me under protest after having had it for over 12 years. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Zola~enwiki (talk)
@Keegan (WMF): @1997kB: @Alaa: Excuse me, but there is nothing in the terms of service that say you "should" have a certain number of edits. This is the problem. You took away my username despite my protests. I have not logged in or edited since that day except to check my username recently. I was completely disgusted with you over your decision. Now the person you gave my username to has abandoned it after all that hassle. It is not unreasonable to ask for it back, and since I did nothing wrong, I don't see as I should have to jump through hoops to get the name back. Ironically, the reason I ended up looking at the username is because you reminded me of the whole sad situation because you emailed me to ask me for money! I would like my original username back, please. You were able to arbitrarily decide to remove it, and I am certain you can arbitrarily decide to return it. 01:25, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
It's up to the discretion of the renamers, and we have declined this request. Nihlus 08:27, 2 December 2018 (UTC)
@Keegan (WMF): @1997kB: @Alaa:@Nihlus: And that is exactly the problem. You have to make this into a big argument and enormous hassle when you could have simply said "Yes, given that it still matters to you so much, you can have your username back". You can still do it. I didn't do anything wrong to cause me to lose my username, and it is not unreasonable that I want it back given that the person you gave it to abandoned it. I should not be jumping through hoops like this. You thought the gentleman in question should have the username. As it turned out, it was a mistake as he quit after just a few years. I had the username longer than he did, I edited with it for more than 12 years, so it is only fair to return it to me. Zola~enwiki (talk) 03:47, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
…and squandered all opportunities to upgrade an en.Wikipedia account to CentralAuth offered for goddamn almost three years since its deployment in May, 2008. Despite advertising yourself as a Web expert. What a pity! Incnis Mrsi (talk) 09:36, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
@Keegan (WMF): @1997kB: @Alaa:@Nihlus: @Incnis Mrsi: What a pity that you now show that you really don't have any reason not to return the username to me other than personal dislike. I have always been polite to all of you despite refusing to give up the request and I have not indulged in personal attacks. I again ask you to put aside the rancor and return my username to me. The reason for this is because I never wanted to give it up and the person you gave it to abandoned it. This is not an unreasonable request and I think it's extremely wrong of you to act like I did/am doing something awful other than annoying you a little. I am sure you can find many examples of people who act far worse than I do for less reason, and when the username is returned I intend to quietly resume my ordinary Wikipedia activities with no further issue. Zola~enwiki (talk)
For me, no usurpation possible: both accounts are not enough active, they have a little more than one hundred contributions and the last contribution has 4 years for both accounts. It is not needed to usurp the name. If the Zola~enwiki were very active with a lot of contributions, it could be accepted, but in this condition, for me it is not necessary (acceptable...). ©éréales Kille® 14:06, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
First of all, please stop pinging a growing list of users as that is not going to help your case. Secondly, we have already told you that this will not be processed. Please drop it and move on to something else or pick a different name that is not chosen. Nihlus 17:42, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

  Not done Less than 400 edits = No usurpation. You should have more than 400 edits --Alaa :)..! 17:33, 1 December 2018 (UTC)


WelpThatWorked, unfortunately it appears that you have registered your account only two hours ago and have made only 4 edits total. We only grant usurpations to established users, typically those who have around 400 edits. As such, you are not eligible for usurpation at this time. —k6ka 🍁 (Talk · Contributions) 22:30, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
