Oppose Was spamming on meta userpage, blocked at meta for spamming. Will only consider lifting the block if they understand COI issues as well as an undertaking not to write about their own company (and spamming). Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:25, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
Not done@GEKO SPA: Firstly new name you selected is against the policy. Usernames that are simply names of companies or groups are not permitted. However, usernames are acceptable if they contain a company or group name but are clearly intended to denote an individual person, such as "Mark at WidgetsUSA", "Jack Smith at the XY Foundation", "WidgetFan87", etc. Secondly as an admin pointed above all you are blocked for spamming, so you need ensure that if we unblock you, you will not write anything related to your company. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:11, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
Not done@Mcpercar and Mariacristinaperez: It looks like you have already registered Mcpercar account. If that is the case, then no need to rename, just abandon the old account and keep using new. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:44, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, Not done. "The chosen username is too similar to existing usernames or it used to be username of someone else that got renamed: Æº and Æó." Please make another selection.Deepfriedokra (talk) 09:59, 20 October 2020 (UTC)
Reason: because the name I have chosen is most beautiful--Konjo1 (talk) 15:58, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
@Konjo1: Usernames that unambiguously represent the name of a company, group, institution, or product are not permitted. However, usernames are acceptable if they contain a company or group name but are clearly intended to denote an individual person, such as "Mark at WidgetsUSA", "Jack Smith at the XY Foundation", "WidgetFan87", etc. Please choose another name. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:28, 11 October 2020 (UTC)
this username i think is good, thanks--Konjo1 (talk) 15:50, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
@Konjo1: No it's not as I explained above. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:27, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Reason: (My old user name is inappropriate and when i tried to create my user page it shows that i can not create user page because the page name is in black list, thats why i want to change my user name)
Reason: I've just created this account in order to develop an anti-vandalism bot under this account for trwiki, since the name is the perfect metaphor for this purpose. Anyway, there is a dewiki-only account by that name with 1 test edit, which was 6 years and 7 months ago. I was therefore wondering if it could be usurped.
@Tazesinial: Türkçe Vikipedi'deki sayfanın silinme nedeni kullanıcı adınız değil, girişiminizin bu sayfadaki kriterleri karşılamamasıydı. Yani kullanıcı adınız değişse bile ilettiğim sayfadaki kriterler sağlanmadığı sürece (ki gördüğüm kadarıyla sağlanmıyor) oluşturduğunuz sayfa kabul edilmeyecek ve silinmeye devam edecek. Türkçe Vikipedi'de engellenme sebebiniz ise tamamen oluşturduğunuz sayfadan bağımsız olarak kullanıcı adlarında ticari markaya izin vermememiz, yani kısaca özetlemem gerekirse kullanıcı adınızı değiştirseniz bile bu sayfadaki kriterler karşılanmadığı sürece sayfanız Vikipedi üzerinde yer almayacak diyebilirim. İyi çalışmalar.--evrifaessa❯❯❯talk 09:01, 21 September 2020 (UTC)
@Tazesinial: Your username has been blocked because it contains a company name. It is sensed from your messages (on trwiki) that you will also make attempts to reopen the page. Even if i change your username, your block will need to be unblocked. After if you open this page again it can be blocked you because you spamming. The reason of your request isn't completely correct and changing your username (based on some of your messages for now), it may cause some problems in the future. You will need to send a message for unblocking to admin who blocked you. Unblocking and then blocking again will tire both you and the admins. I remind you these by your home wiki rules. If you pay attention to these rules, I can change your username. You would better reconfirm this request if you want your name to be changed and if you approve these. --Uncitoyentalk 15:03, 22 September 2020 (UTC)
@Tazesinial: If you don't attempt to open your company's page again, I can rename your account. If you want to contribute to Wikipedia, you can also create a new account. You also save time. Please comments so that I can process this request. --Uncitoyentalk 16:43, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
Not done Since 2 weeks this user has no answers to questions. I am closing as not done, because I'm thinking that some concerns are still continuing. --Uncitoyentalk 08:53, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
Reason: Because of potential security risks, according to my personal preference, I want to change my username. Thanks. --Rowingbohe♬(Talk/My work) 14:37, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
@Rowingbohe:the name was using by other user, do you have other name want to change? or you may wait for one month for usurpation.--May♡♡→♡℃※Talk 07:16, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
Done@蟲蟲飛: This username was not used by any other user. Those you saw while renaming are antispoof conflicts. If such conflicts do not have any edits and are inactive, it's best to ignore them. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 08:34, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
Reason: First, if it's possible, I'd like to 'distance' myself from the username of User:BunsenBurner, who has been performing vandalistic actions on the English Wikipedia, as well to emphasize the fact I'm not associated with User:BunsenBurner. (I did not notice when I registered). Sorry!
Second, this user hasn't made any edits for 8 years.
Not done@BunsenBurners: User Silicon has 300+ contribution on Russian Wikipedia, thus not eligible for usurpation. Additionally your account isn't established enough for a usurpation request, you need to choose a username that's not registered already. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:26, 7 October 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB: OK, sorry for the inconvenience! I might have not read the usurpation requirements correctly. BunsenBurners (💬│🖋) 00:37, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
Reason: My real name is Marla Raucher Osborn. The username "Marla Raucher Osborn" was created by another user earlier this year. That user then downloaded hundreds of images which I had created and posted on my Facebook page and on the website of my NGO, or which were created by others who work with me, and then they uploaded them to the Commons claiming "own work" – and claiming to be me when the uploads were challenged. When I discovered the impersonation and copyright violations, from my email address and without a Wiki user account I was able to get the false account blocked and the violating uploads deleted; see OTRS Ticket#2020100710002553. However, a small number of public domain uploads by this user remain on the Commons and appear as if they were uploaded by me, as does the past history of bad behavior, because the impersonation is still intact. I am requesting two renames: (1) change the current username "Marla Raucher Osborn" to something/anything else, to stop the impersonation and to move the prior public domain uploads and other contributions to another name, and then (2) assign the username "Marla Raucher Osborn" to me, so that I can recover my real name. I understand there are risks to using my real name as my Wiki username; I already have those risks in my public life and accept them. I also understand that there may be residual pages or edits on the Commons or elsewhere which remain tied to my name via the prior user; I will try to clean those up as best I can.
@WitorSousa: User Astatinium seems to be active (they recently visited English Wikipedia, see account creation details in CentralAuth). So this username isn't eligible for usurpation. Please choose another name. Also as you mentioned privacy issue, usurpation request are put onhold for 1 month and after that rename will be done, so I hope that's not issue. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:13, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
The account is mine therefore making it obvious the reason why that account would have logged in recently. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by WitorSousa (talk)
@WitorSousa: Alright then please make a comment here with Astatinium account to confirm. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 17:43, 23 October 2020 (UTC)
@BlackBeastofArgh: Given that Rellum only exists at enwiki, you might get a faster response if you lodge your request at w:WP:USURP instead. They'll handle the request in 7 days instead of 30 as we do here. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 22:53, 30 October 2020 (UTC)
Not done here. Request filed on enwiki USURP page. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:10, 31 October 2020 (UTC)
