Reason: I just start to working with The center for society & internet (CIS). I have updated some lists on Meta. I created my half account, Nitesh (CIS), by mistake. I want to correct my User name as Nitesh (CIS-A2K). Nitesh (CIS) (talk) 12:50, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
Done. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 15:27, 10 September 2019 (UTC)
@Rapsar: Already exist an account called Xolotl. Please, choose other username. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 21:48, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
@Stanglavine:, when I used the tool above, I couldn't see :/ That one isn't active for 8 years, isn't it possible to have that name? At least in other projects but the German Wikipedia?--Rapsar (talk) 21:51, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
@Rapsar: No, because accounts with valid edits, in any sites or any time, can not be usurped (standard procedure). I suggest that you choose other username. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 22:03, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
@Stanglavine:, I want Nanahuatl, it looks like it is possible. Should I make another request or like this it's OK?--Rapsar (talk) 06:36, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
Reason: Hi, I want to change my username because I want to continue anonymously. The new username I have chosen has never been taken. Please change in Turkish Wikipedia and French Wikipedia. Thank u! --Can Azizali (talk) 09:12, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Reason: Current name has lost its relevance. In order to keep the history of article creation, it is very important to change the name to a new version. Stas-Adolf (talk) 12:00, 30 September 2019 (UTC)
Reason: I would like to usurp this username because the user who has this username haven't made a single edit on any Wikipedia language. The account is not connected to SUL and is a user on the English Wikipedia and have not made any edits there. Iantriks (talk) 08:05, 3 August 2019 (UTC)
Reason: As you can see, my oldname is a classic meaningless user name. It's hard to explain what does this mean, and it's actually concerned in a matter of privacy as well. I'd like to change it into Recollections. Because this is the neckname I've been using nowadays.
Thanks for moving my request. Then I realize I just misunderstood the meaning that Global User Account Merges are not possible, so I considered I cannot usurp the name Recollections globally. Now I'm confirmed that I want to usurp the name Recollections. I cordially appreciate your effort!

On hold Until 5 September 2019. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 11:54, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
Done. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 00:51, 6 September 2019 (UTC)
Reason: My current name might reveal personal info; the new name is also what I use on other sites. I have previously registered an account with that name, but I forgot that I had done that and registered this account later. I would like to usurp that old account as I am active on this account and the old one is unused. I will reply to this with the old account as proof that I have access to that account.
Comment: Alright. "MBT" is a vandalism-only account at pt.wiki, I see no reason to wait 1 month (default), but I prefer wait for another opinion of renamers before procedure. Rafael(stanglavine) msg 11:13, 13 September 2019 (UTC)
Reason: I'd like to have username UnladenSwallow (with a capital "S"), so I need to usurp Unladenswallow (Wikipedia does not allow creation of accounts that differ only by case). Unladenswallow made a single edit on en.wiki 12 years ago. I've just created my account, but I have been editing Wikipedia for years. For example, my recent dynamic IPs are 22.214.171.124 (76 edits from 8-Aug-2019 to 14-Aug-2019) and 126.96.36.199 (202 edits from 22-Aug-2019 until present). All these edits are mine. Thank you.
Reason: I'm pretty sure that my original Somatos account was on en.wiki and when I started contributing to the it.wiki I understood (perhaps wrongly) that I had to make an account with a different name for issues related to the global accounts (which were new at the time). As I use the name somatos in my primary email and on all other web applications/platforms, I would like to usurp the username Somatos which only has 1 edit from 10 years ago.
Reason: Hi, when I subscribed I was a child and I used this name without thinking about it, but now I’d like, to tutelate my privacy, to not place my born year in my username and to use a more serious username. Ferdinando there’s on de.wikipedia but he has only 17 edits in 2009 and then he never used his account. Ferdinando~itwiki never used his account and I think he’ll never use. In alternative, the user Ferdi is ok. --Ferdi2005(Posta) 15:51, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
@Ferdi2005: Both Ferdinando and Ferdi have valid contributions and thus not eligible for usurpation. Please choose another username. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 09:58, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
Reason: DrakkarBCN is my original created account on 2009. But I don't remember my password, and there is neither a email registraded. So I can't Login. I please you to chang that account to assign me my right User name. I have created a account called Drakkar76, and I want to rename it to DrakkarBCN Thanks
Reason: I want to change my username to my sock puppetry's name.I took wrong name on the beginning of using Wikimedia and made the sock puppetry accidentally that I can't rename my username directly.Mattc123456c (talk) 12:26, 28 September 2019 (UTC)
Hi @Mattc123456c: Could you please sign below with Matt Zhuang account also. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 12:33, 28 September 2019 (UTC)

Reason: I never really wanted the "1" on my username. French Wikipedia has a "Crossroads", but they have only edited their userpage and have not been back in 10 years. I think they could be usurped. Also it would be great if User:Crossroads1 at English could redirect to User:Crossroads if this works out, to preserve links to my userpage.--Crossroads1 (talk) 16:59, 28 August 2019 (UTC)
On hold until 28 September. Yes Crossroads1 will redirect to Crossroads. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 17:07, 28 August 2019 (UTC)
