Thank you very much. --Milenioscuro (talk) 14:55, 6 May 2019 (UTC)


See this. The owner of the Anna account objects the usurpation. --Stïnger (会話) 12:11, 5 April 2019 (UTC).

E to the Pi times i

The target account in question does have 6 undeleted edits on da, but all the edits were part of a set of relatively minor changes that occurred in 2008, so this request seems reasonable enough (at least based on my readings of global rename policy and the related RFC). The only potential complication I see is that the user also apparently created a global account in 2015, but this also means they can certainly object during the one month after notification of the proposed usurption.
I will also note for the purposes of alleviating potential concerns about concealing or obfuscating bad conduct that I do have an active topic-ban on en.WP that was enacted a year ago by the community, and this is not an attempt to evade that; it will be easy enough to note the rename on the editing restrictions page and duly note the old account on my user page if this rename is carried out. --E to the Pi times i (talk) 23:49, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Hello EnekoGotzon, username Enneco-Gotzon is recently registered (~6 months old) and thus may not be eligible for usurpation, but we can rename you to EnnecoGotzon or Enneco Gotzon, if you are happy with two options above, please reply with your choice. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 06:21, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

I have to apologize… I am the stupidest man in the world… :( I had forgotten that I registered the "Enneco-Gotzon" account for myself, that is, I am the owner of both accounts, that of the user EnekoGotzon [modern spelling] and that of the user Enneco-Gotzon [classical spelling]. You can realize it because I am replying to you from the "Enneco-Gotzon" account. Both accounts share the same email address and the same access password. I would like to know if it is possible to merge those two accounts, although I would understand that, instead, due to my clumsiness, you sent me go to do heck, or, even, out from Wikipedia for being clueless… I am sorry.--Enneco-Gotzon (talk) 00:04, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
@EnekoGotzon and Enneco-Gotzon: No need to apologize. Unfortunately merging isn't possible due to technical reasons, but we can rename
  1. Enneco-Gotzon to Enneco-Gotzon (usurped)
and then
  1. EnekoGotzon to Enneco-Gotzon
or if you want to keep both account operational, in that case Enneco-Gotzon (usurped) could be renamed to EnekoGotzon also. Please reply with your choice. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:37, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
I apologize for delaying my response—It's because I've been overwhelmed by my work. I accept your proposal. Please, proceed to rename the account Enneco-Gotzon to Enneco-Gotzon (usurped), and then the account EnekoGotzon to Enneco-Gotzon. As I do not need to keep both accounts I will delete the Enneco-Gotzon (usurped) one. Thank you very much for helping me. Take care.--Enneco-Gotzon (talk) 22:14, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

Athena Atterdag

@Athena Atterdag: Target username has valid contributions, which is barrier to usurpation due to licensing concerns. Please choose another username. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:45, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
