Hi 1997kB, I do not understand why the change I asked for, was not done. Instead, a change I did not ask for is done! What is FelisObscura? I never asked for that, and I guess it's pretty obvious. FelisObscura (talk) 19:18, 1 May 2020 (UTC)
Hey, My Apologies as this seems to be a error. Let's wait for the renamer who handled that and I'll process this request. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:51, 1 May 2020 (UTC)
Reason: Lately, some people in Turkish Wikipedia started to text me out of Wikipedia by finding me from my username (even some harrased me :^)). I don't want that to be happening, so i want to change my name from my actual name to a nickname. But i made a nickname change just consisting a letter capitilization. Thank you in advance.
@JN95: non hai intenzione di contribuire più? Sappi che non potrai tornare a tuo piacimento con una nuova utenza.--Sakretsu (炸裂) 20:19, 23 May 2020 (UTC)
Si va bene così, non mi interessa più partecipare a wikipedia in quanto ho già contribuito per quello che potevo. Avrei bisogno di un nome utente anonimo. I confirm my choice. Proceed with the anonymous username. Thanks --JN95 (talk) 12:50, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
Reason: Dear colleagues, I want to use a one and memorable username to all online platforms (Included on my favorite Wikipedia.) I have been using the same username for 12 years. I was a primary school student when I became a member. A name chosen by an adolescent teenager period. I am surprised/mixed when logging in.
Reason: When I was trying to register using the name "SkEy". It said there had already been a similar user ("Skey") and my registration was rejected. But when I checked it out I found the user had only 13 edits long time ago, and had no edits since 2008. Otherwise, SkEy is my first and only English name, which I made up of my real name, so I would like to rename. Thank you!
Unfortunately, it is still going against the local username policy. You cannot register usernames which imply that your account is operated by a group or institution but not only one person. --Hamish 04:56, 30 May 2020 (UTC)
Reason: I don't like my current name because it is random and doesn't have a meaning. There is not any active global account named "Papillon", and the one in French Wikipedia has made their last edit in 2006.
Reason: The user Kutay (or Kutay~trwiki) has done some contributions only in French Wikipedia, and the latest was back in 2014. And his name was changed back in 2015. Because of the capital T, i can't login without entering it capitally, and users work extra for pinging me. Plus, i want a shorter and simpler name.
Reason: I would like to shorten my username to just my first name. I don't really want my last name in my username anymore. I cannot find any users named Nithin on any wiki with many or recent contributions. Thanks in advance!
Reason: I've been using "Moycat" as my online nickname for years, like on GitHub and many more websites. Current account named Moycat has been inactive for over 10 years, and the only edition is on a user talk page. So I hope to get the name. Thanks :)
Reason: The user "Austin Chang" has only edited an article 7 times on Chinese Wikipedia, and the article has been deleted for more than 3 years, the account doesn't have any activity since then as well. So I would really like to change my username to the correct "Chang" instead of a parody "Chan9".
@Croatiafirst: Usernames including phrases such as "wikipedia", "wikimedia", "wiktionary", "(WMF)", or similar are not allowed. They give the incorrect impression that the account may be officially affiliated with the Wikimedia Foundation or one of its projects. Please choose another one. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 08:45, 29 April 2020 (UTC)

Reason: Sorry for that but I submitted a renaming request at Special:GlobalRenameRequest before found this page; could my previous request be canceled or be replaced by this request? I want to have my user name changed so it could be unified with my other on-line accounts. I has checked the new name using Special:CentralAuth, and found it only exists on English Wikipedia, without any visible edits.
Reason: All these "old" accounts (Troodon~enwiki, Troodon~rowiki, Troodon~ruwiki, Troodon~frwiki) got autorenamed when SUL was implemented. My oldest account was in ES and the "new" SUL account is based on ES. All the accounts were registered with the same email address. I would like the edits of all these "old" accounts to be merged in the new SUL account.
@Troodon: As the banner on the top of page says, merging accounts is not possible. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 10:37, 18 May 2020 (UTC)
However we could locally rename some accounts in order and have the user merge them later if Toodon is able to prove ownership of the ~xxx accounts. If they're all registered to the same email address and he can log in to them, maybe we can do something. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 16:01, 18 May 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB:@MarcoAurelio: Before adding my request here I asked on #wikipedia-en-help and #wikimedia-stewards whether a merge would be possible, and I was told this was the right place to ask for it. I also was told that accounts registered with the same email address should have been automatically merged, but in my case this didn't happen. Also, here at top there is a small section about "SUL finalization" :-). So, if it's possible please tell me how to proceed, and how to prove the ownership of the said accounts. Thanks :-) --Troodon (talk) 18:43, 18 May 2020 (UTC)
@Troodon: Please login with Troodon~enwiki, Troodon~rowiki, Troodon~ruwiki, Troodon~frwiki and comment here. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:42, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB: Please, if possible, merge me with my soul Troodon :-). Thanks! --Troodon~enwiki (talk) 22:04, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
Please, if possible, merge me with my soul Troodon :-). Thanks!--Troodon~frwiki (talk) 22:11, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
Please, if possible, merge me with my soul Troodon :-). Thanks!--Troodon~rowiki (talk) 22:17, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
Please, if possible, merge me with my soul Troodon :-). Thanks!--Troodon~ruwiki (talk) 22:21, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the ping. I am checking with fellow stewards before doing the local renames to check if there are any issues I am not aware of before doing any of the local renames. Thanks. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:09, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB:@MarcoAurelio: It seems that all four accounts got properly merged. A big thank you to you both for processing & solving my request so fast & kindly :-) --Troodon (talk) 22:54, 20 May 2020 (UTC)
@Troodon: Hold on we still need you. @MarcoAurelio: I think it best to merge these with ~en/~ro/~ru accounts so that we have no unattached account. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:50, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
@Troodon: Por favor inicia sesión ahora con Troodon~enwiki, Troodon~rowiki y Troodon~ruwiki y accede con cada una de ellas a Special:MergeAccount para que podamos finalizar, esta vez ya sí, todo el proceso. Gracias. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 18:11, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB:@MarcoAurelio: Done. Thank you for your help! Is it possible to delete these Troodon~XXwiki accounts or they must be kept? --Troodon (talk) 10:45, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
@Troodon: Thanks. All should be done now. And to answer your question: accounts cannot be deleted once created. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:01, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
