Tracked in Phabricator:
task T267866 resolved
@Martin Urbanec: Possible to restore the account? -- CptViraj (talk) 08:18, 15 November 2020 (UTC)
@Yerpo: Please follow at Phab task. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 08:56, 15 November 2020 (UTC)

@Yerpo:   Not done, given I restored the account for you. I set Botopol's email to the same email as you currently have in your preferences (no email was set previously). You can now use Special:PasswordReset to reset the password itself. Please be more careful next time. Best, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 09:12, 15 November 2020 (UTC)

That resolved the issue, thank you Martin Urbanec. — Yerpo Eh? 09:14, 15 November 2020 (UTC)

  Done There is no need for usurpation. This is an issue of antispoof and can be easily ignored if the conflicting account is inactive and unused. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 07:55, 2 November 2020 (UTC)


Please seriously consider your new username as you just changed it 2 days ago. And there is no need to usurp because I don't see an account named Starrygrass. --Hamish 12:18, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
Dear I want to change my user name again and this new user name is my final decision. I dont want to do usurp. Thanks Starrygrass (talk) 14:33, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
Okay, I've already scheduled your rename. --Hamish 15:03, 2 November 2020 (UTC)


  On hold until 3 December. --Hamish 04:03, 3 November 2020 (UTC)
  Not done @Vikichizar: User Thedeep has valid contributions (169) over Spanish Wikipedia, thus not available for usurpation. Please choose another one and file new request. CC: @Hamish:. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 06:07, 3 November 2020 (UTC)


  Not done @Hitomi25: In order to ensure that usurped usernames be put to good use, we prefer only to grant requests from reasonably well-established users. Your account is hours old and doesn't qualify that requirement. Feel free to come back when you have an established account. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 15:12, 8 November 2020 (UTC)

@PepTheVoyager: Are you sure you want to rename Josepalvarezperez~eswiki to PepTheVoyager? Just for the information you will lost all the contributions that are now attached to PepTheVoyager account. Also please login with Josepalvarezperez~eswiki and comment here to confirm. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:19, 14 November 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB: Thanks for your message. As requested, I have logged in with my user Josepalvarezperez~eswiki. Is not possible to merge this old user with my user PepTheVoyager without losing my contributions? My overall issue is that my original Wikipedia user Josepalvarezperez was "forked" in the Spanish wikipedia by the admin User:Keegan_(WMF) on 09:30 21 abr 2015 (UTC). After that action I had two users: Josepalvarezperez~eswiki for the Spanish wikipedia and Josepalvarezperez for the English, Catalan and Galician version. Some weeks ago I did request the migration of my user Josepalvarezperez to the new PepTheVoyager. Unfortunately, the Spanish user Josepalvarezperez~eswiki was "left behind". I would appreciate any suggestion on how to proceed to merge these two users in one and not losing my contributions if possible. --Josepalvarezperez~eswiki (talk) 21:03, 15 November 2020 (UTC)
@PepTheVoyager: As the notice above says, merging accounts is no more possible. We can only do rename, so if it's a privacy issue we can rename that account to something else. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:04, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB: Thanks for your clarification. As privacy issue, could you rename my Account Josepalvarezperez~eswiki to PepTheVoyager~eswiki? At least with this approach I would keep a similar naming pattern as I had in the past. ‐‐Josepalvarezperez~eswiki (talk) 15:30, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
