@Hüseyn706: You were renamed Hüseyn Samir to Hüseyn706 on 14 December 2018. Additionally you don't seems to take renaming seriously, which is indicated by your reason for renaming and requests you submitted right after last renaming. So please rethink on your rename request and reply with your decision whether you really want to be renamed or not. Remember this will be your last rename. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 09:17, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
  Not done No response. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 09:49, 8 January 2019 (UTC)


Samir.ettali, the new name can not begin with a lowercase letter. In that case, the correct thing is to rename to Tizio.caio.sempr. Can be? --Editor D.S (talk)  21:50, 29 December 2018 (UTC)
  Done As the reason for renaming seems to removing real name. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 09:49, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

You were blocked indefinitely for vandalism and block evasion, so I see no reason for approving this request and several reasons against. Please resolve your conflicts at :itwiki, then we can reconsider. — Yerpo Eh? 14:15, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
But in order to the "right to vanish" (see [[1]] or [[2]] as you prefer). I have the "right" to request a renamation of my account. Besides, the block in Wikikipedia IT is WRONG. As you can check, I haven't committed any vandalism and I'M NOT Sean Ago as some admin think. They HAVEN'T checked their idea by opening a CU but they have blocked me because of sockpuppeting. This is AGAINST a lot of Wikipedia's rules. So please check my situation and or unlock me or please change my username. Thanks very much. --FraGnu (talk) 14:49, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
@Yerpo: please change my name with the one I've written up there (User941763). I know you don't have to do this but try to help me and do what I asked you, please. I wait for you answer. Good evening and thanks very much. --FraGnu (talk) 21:31, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
Changing the target username does not change the reason that this request was declined. Vermont (talk) 21:33, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Tracked in Phabricator:
task T213796 resolved
@SuperVirtual: Do you understand the potential consequences of using a real name? --Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 15:44, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Yes, of course. I hope to have no such problems in the future. --SuperVirtual (talk) 15:47, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
@SuperVirtual: As you are blocked on English Wikipedia for edit warring and sock-puppetry, we can't rename until you address those issues and resolve the block. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 18:59, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
@1997kB: I almost forgot that. It was an old block (I think it was 2013, where @Kww: cited me as a sockpuppet of a user I never knew, actually, since he lived in a total different city from mine). --SuperVirtual (talk) 20:40, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Note that the block has been upheld multiple times. Feel free to evaluate whether his behaviour has improved, but I considered it an obvious match at the time and don't see anything that makes me reconsider that decision.Kww (talk) 21:43, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
@SuperVirtual: Just confirming, you still interested in rename? As your contributions to itwiki seems to indicates that you are seriously contributing to Wikipedia, thus I'm happy to process this request. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:16, 15 January 2019 (UTC)
Yes, I'm still interested. -- 06:53, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

@Eeee11: Usernames that are simply names of companies or groups are not permitted. However, 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. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 05:29, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

@Munja: Did you scrambled it's password too? If not please sign below my comment using both of those bot accounts. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 09:51, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
I scrambled password, long time ago. --Munja (talk) 13:29, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

@Philip J Fry: If the traget account belongs to you, then why it's blocked for sock-puppetry? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 09:49, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
@1997kB: I was expelled from for several years. But last year I was readmitted. Anyway, if it is not possible that you can unlock the account here, I will try to communicate with an administrator of J Fry (talk) 10:49, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
@Philip J Fry: Well the block will be transferred to usurped account after rename, so it's not a problem actually. Please confirm signing below my comment using Bradford account. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 10:53, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
@1997kB: Ready.--Bradford (talk) 11:04, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
@Philip J Fry: Looking at rename logs, you have been renamed twice in past (both of which were usurpations), one of them was recently in July, why another rename so quicky? Please remember that username change takes valuable server resources and shouldn't be treated lightly. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:34, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
@1997kB: In IRC/Freenode I am known as Bradford. The usurpation that was made last year was to keep my editions of the DJMalik account that was blocked.--Philip J Fry (talk) 11:41, 4 January 2019 (UTC)

There's nothing that stops you from simply renaming the account though. Leaderboard (talk) 13:22, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
@Leaderboard: There is. It's not an established account (see his previous request 1 and previous request 2). @Semako96: Please do not make continued requests. If you have a main account, which until this point has been undisclosed, then there might be a chance to usurp Semako as an alternate account. However, you would need to make that request from your main account. Nihlus 14:45, 22 January 2019 (UTC)


@Kalki: Do you object this usurpation, since target account Alvin is blocked as your sock? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:09, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
I still have a special fondness for that name, and wish that I could have been using it for years, as I had intended to do, but I have no objection to it being usurped at this point, as I have no plans to make any appeals, anytime soon, to further use any of my alternate accounts again, though I have always maintained that I had never actually used them improperly, and asserting that there were only very few incidental or accidental edits which could be counted on the fingers of one hand (among many tens of thousands of clearly proper edits), that I believed could even be credibly, but wrongly, construed to be improper.
