Hello @Mellvile: The username has been changed according to the request here. I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you want to say.--Turkmen talk 11:33, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

the name Louisette Ciliberto is fine,
I just wanted you to delete this phrase
curprev 11:15, 11 September 2020‎ Turkmen talk contribs‎ m 61 bytes 0‎ Turkmen moved page User:Noël Redaelli to User:Louisette Ciliberto: Automatically moved page while renaming the user "Noël Redaelli" to "Louisette Ciliberto"
because in this way we understand that a change has been made--Mellvile (talk) 09:27, 17 September 2020 (UTC)
@Mellvile: It's not possible for us to delete that. You can contact commons admins but it's unlikely they will do that either. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:05, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

@Ryugar00t: Your pervious request was rejected because it wasn't related to the rules. Now you say someone else uses this username/account. If someone else is using this username, how do you make this request? Please provide reasons in your requests by wiki rules. --Uncitoyentalk 19:44, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

I don't want to use this username, that's just that.

@Ryugar00t: You constantly explain different reasons and cause us to be suspicious. If this account is your and you don't want to use current name, we can perform the rename. --Uncitoyentalk 11:41, 24 September 2020 (UTC)

This account belongs to me and I don't want to use this username.

Thank you for your answer.   Done --Uncitoyentalk 11:49, 24 September 2020 (UTC)

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications


  Not done @SWFan598: Requested username has a large number of valid contributions. Therefore, it isn't possible to usurped this name. Please choose another username. --Uncitoyentalk 10:31, 1 September 2020 (UTC)


  Not done Usurpation is done for accounts with valid and large number of edits. Your account has just been created and you don't have many valid edits. You can request again in the future. --Uncitoyentalk 14:17, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
@Uncitoyen:, hi! Kazaczok is a private account of a WMPL (Polish Wikimedia Charter) employee. She is not established in Wikimedia projects right now, but surely will be in the future (it is kinda her job :P ). At which point will she be able to apply for the usurpation? Cheers! Nadzik (talk) 15:27, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
Hi @Nadzik: I think the importance and size of the edits are more important than the number. Since there is no rule for the number anyway, we evaluate it according to the edits. These two accounts are close to each other in terms of edits. And I didn't know the account that created the request, as it was new account and she didn't clearly write who she was. I understand she doesn't have any other Wikimedia account. If she make more remarkable contributions than the requested account, I would like it to be done again. --Uncitoyentalk 17:08, 3 September 2020 (UTC)


This account has more edits than you. I think you'd better to choose a different name. Ruslik (talk) 20:27, 21 August 2020 (UTC)
Does this actually matter? I wasn't aware that renames are dependent on edit count. I would also note that the other account has never made an edit on English Wikipedia and as I said earlier, has been inactive for 6 years. I'm still at least an active contributor on a wiki project. Trying to understand the rationale here, that's all. Thanks. Noir~enwiki (talk) 01:24, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
@Noir~enwiki: Accounts with valid edits are not usurped. So you have to choose another name. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 10:15, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

@Tinhog: I understand that you want to recover your previous account which you do not have access to via a username change. If I am correct, you'll need to wait for 1 month to proceed, I will do the rest after one month (after 3 August). Please advise if you will wait or I will do nothing. --Hamish 06:40, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
I was advised to leave a note on my older page, which I did a couple of months ago, so technically the time has passed already.
Also, it's not a simple username change. It'd would be what it's called an usurp. I'd like to keep my existing edits on the new account with the old name --Tinhog (talk) 15:59, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
Kindly see USURP, targets should be notified by renamers. And yes, we will transfer your existing contribs when renaming. --Hamish 03:04, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
Thx. I did that already over 2 months ago as instructed via email. See: --Tinhog (talk) 22:22, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
  On hold until 3 September. @Tinhog: Notifications are only left by renamers and what you left wasn't a valid notification. Please wait until 3 September. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:06, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
Understood, thanks. But the reply I got from Wikimedia Stewards simply said: "(...) leave a note at the talk page of your old account, wait one month and use your new account to apply for an usurpation at (...)" --Tinhog (talk) 01:13, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

This was not simple usurption request, they was requesting only rename of enwiki account @蟲蟲飛:, So I am reverting your changes. Also please use done instead of + as bot don't recognise +. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:45, 16 July 2020 (UTC)
@علاء: Could you please handle it. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:45, 16 July 2020 (UTC)
@Steamfire~enwiki and Steamfire: Just to be sure are you requesting enwiki edits of Steamfire~enwiki to be merged with Steamfire? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:58, 16 July 2020 (UTC)
I am not sure of the proper terminology. I don't want the Steamfire~enwiki account at all. I just want everything in Steamfire. The content from Steamfire was all migrated to Steamfire~enwiki. So I guess that would mean merging that content BACK to Steamfire. The only thing I've done on Steamfire~enwiki were two small edits in 2020. It's ok if those can't be merged back to Steamfire. Thank you both for your help! <3 --Steamfire~enwiki (talk) 02:32, 16 July 2020 (UTC)
Thanks @1997kB:, and done --Alaa :)..! 13:50, 16 July 2020 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec and علاء: Requesting user didn't performed account merge. I have also notified them twice via email, but no response. Since request can't sit here for months, what should we do now? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:29, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
We can close it, and when the user logged in the account will be merged directly. In cause of such requests I don't like to handle such actions with accounts which have less than hundreds of edits. Thanks in advance --Alaa :)..! 11:33, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
@علاء: Should we set a edit limit to these requests too? Just like 400 edits for usurpation. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:39, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB: yup, like our practice tradition with usurpation requests (less than 400 edits, no usurpation and no merge) --Alaa :)..! 11:44, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

@Guergana Tzatchkova:   On hold until 2020-09-11, user notified about possible usurpation. Please note, however, that changing your username won't allow you from creating the (WMDE) account - you would need an admin to do that on your behalf. Feel free to email me at from your staff address, and I'll create a WMDE account for you :). --Martin Urbanec (talk) 14:22, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
@Martin Urbanec: I already have my WMDE account and no problems with it. Would just like to change the name of this account. --Guergana Tzatchkova (talk) 14:26, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
@Guergana Tzatchkova: Aha, I misunderstood your message then :-). As the name is already registered, we need to wait a month and then we can change the name of your account (this is called an usurpation). --Martin Urbanec (talk) 15:44, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

Is KizuleBot your own account, Zoranzoki21? If so, could you make an edit with it here please? Just confirming it is your own would do. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 12:44, 6 September 2020 (UTC)
