Reason: I opened this account three years ago and in this three years I got a new nickname. I dropped my old username years ago. The old one is very traditional and contains first letters of my name. I want to change my username to this new one.
Reason: The user's last contribution was 13 years ago on Bulgarian wiki. I want to get this username as it is important for me, it is my real name, it is short, and useful. If it is possible to get this username, I'd be very happy.----Nystaléos (talk) 19:38, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
Reason: I want to get this username because I want to be more anonymous (Cem is my real name). If it is possible to get this username, I'd be very grateful.------Cem Rize (talk) 15:23, 7 March 2020 (UTC)

Reason: Rsg was the name I used in the old arcade games and when I registered I used it in Wikipedia. My name is Omar and generally I use Omarete in all places. I registered Omarete in 2013 to avoid anybody using it, but never used it.
Reason: I tried to request the change by Special:GlobalRenameRequest, but my request was rejected because the new name is too similar to the old one. That's also why I chose this new name: I'd like to change "PJ" in "MM", but I'd want the first part to remain the same, so that people will be able to recognise me. The new name I chose should be available, as no one has signed up using it, so usurpation shouldn't be necessary. If any problem occurs, don't warry and simply reject my request. Thank you very much in advance!
Your request was rejected because the chosen username "PercyMM" is too similar to Percymm, which is already taken. This is to avoid confusion. @1997kB: since that user has no edits and is preventing the rename, I suppose it can be usurped as if it was "PercyMM"--Sakretsu (炸裂) 20:08, 6 April 2020 (UTC)
@Sakretsu: I think usurpation is unnecessary in this case. Conflicted account is inactive and is not exact match, so just ignore antispoof match. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:36, 9 April 2020 (UTC)
Ok, then. Done. Thanks!--Sakretsu (炸裂) 23:28, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
@Sakretsu and 1997kB: Thank you very much! Only one question: now on it.wiki if someuse "call me" using template ping with my old username (@PercyPJ:), will I receive the notification? Thanks again and happy Easter! --PercyMM (talk) 06:46, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
Reason: "A" used to be my previous account before I was renamed TRMC (talk ·contribs) in 2013. I haven't used the name "TRMC" since 2016 because I lost access to that account. Now I want to change my account back to "A" because I was known to most Vietnamese Wikpedian users by that name. I have checked that the name "A" has not been used since the renaming in 2013.
@Chibaodoanle: User A has valid contributions thus not eligible for usurpation. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 09:26, 15 April 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB: Can we do something about it? As I know, my name was not changed globally at the time since Wikimedia only implemented the single user login for all Wikimedia projects in 2014. All of user A's contributions to other Wikimedia projects were done by me before my username was renamed by vietnamese Wikipedia bureaucrat back in 2013. --Chibaodoanle (talk) 09:53, 15 April 2020 (UTC)
@Chibaodoanle: If you have access to those other accounts with username A then we can do something. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 05:28, 16 April 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB: and @Turkmen:; I've been already waiting for a month for this change and I don't want to wait more because of something that I've got nothing to do for. And it's clear that the user is not active since lots of years. Is there any other way to do this? Thank you. --ravages 19:26, 9 April 2020 (UTC)
@Ravages: Apologies as it was my mistake. We are saying to wait more because user page edits do not send notification. As I have left them a message at talk page now, they are officially notified. Please give it atleast a week more. Thanks! ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:26, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
Thank you so much for your relevance, @1997kB:. I would be very happy if it's possible to wait just a week more. Which date suits for that time period? Shall we determine it on that page? I can notify you again when it ends. Best regards. --ravages 06:58, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
On hold until 17 April. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 08:36, 10 April 2020 (UTC)
Time is over, just wanted to remind @1997kB: Best regards. --ravages 07:25, 17 April 2020 (UTC)
Reason: There is an opportunity to use the name "Daraku K." outside of Wikimedia, and in order to unify it, and because it seems that user names using double-byte characters are not appropriate for activities other than jawp, the user name Please change.
