Simple rename requests

Phil Sandifer

I note that the Foundation's Universal Code of Conduct explicitly enshrines the right of trans people to be referred to by our post-transition names, and strongly urge someone to reverse this decision to comply with the Foundation's explicit policy. Phil Sandifer (talk) 20:16, 29 November 2021 (UTC)
A concern was expressed to the English Wikipedia Arbitration Committee privately that the ban at en-Wiki is invalidating this request, but we have discussed the matter and do not see it as a roadblock to enacting it, assuming all other metrics are acceptable. Please feel free to reach out to ArbCom if you would like any further clarification. Primefac (talk) 07:07, 30 November 2021 (UTC)
Sorry, I'm confused by what you're saying—is the en-Wiki ban still blocking the name change request, or can this now be taken care of?Phil Sandifer (talk) 13:38, 30 November 2021 (UTC)
(ping): Hi there 👋 just to clarify what Primefac is saying, your English Wikipedia ban should no longer be blocking your account rename request. I humbly request, as an English Wikipedia functionary and a trans woman, that this rename be enacted by the global rename team at their earliest convenience. Kindest regards   --TNT (talk • she/they) 15:34, 30 November 2021 (UTC)
Ah, thank you. The "reach out to ArbCom" made me wonder if there was more I had to do. Very glad to hear that I can stop signing posts like this soon. Phil Sandifer (talk) 16:32, 30 November 2021 (UTC)
I believe that was aimed at the Meta stewards, in case they need clarification from us. I'll add that TNT's clarification is correct, enwiki ArbCom does not see the ban on our wiki as something that should delay this request. --BDD (talk) 19:19, 30 November 2021 (UTC)

@Hulalup: The chosen username is similar to existing usernames or it used to be username of someone else that got renamed: !--g--, !g, *g, -G-, .G. Please choose another one. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:21, 9 November 2021 (UTC)

Gozdzik93

I have to say that applying for a UC as an anonymous user is really an unusual thing... and from the history, we could see that user is trying to sign as others, which is hard not to raise my suspicions. Stang 00:19, 10 December 2021 (UTC)

@Marvel Spider-Man 99009:   Not done. The chosen username is too similar to existing usernames: MARVEL SPIDER-MAN and Marvel spiderman. Also, impersonating Spider-Man will put a target on your back. -- Jeff G. ツ (please ping or talk to me) 03:21, 21 December 2021 (UTC)

OliverMarkPhotographer

@OliverMarkPhotographer: Your new choice sends a message that you work for Creative Commons, if that's not the case, I'd advise to choose something different. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:15, 9 September 2021 (UTC)
@1997kB: Thanks for the input, but I'd like to use the new name anyway. You can find many photographs by the name Oliver Mark online and I'd like to distinguish other accounts from the ones on Wikimedia Commons and Flickr, where only Creative Commons are uploaded. The new name is already used on Flickr (https://www.flickr.com/OliverMarkCreativeCommons/). I would appreciate it if you would proceed with the username change. Thank you. (OliverMarkPhotographer (talk) 13:17, 9 September 2021 (UTC))
@OliverMarkPhotographer: Our username policy discourage username that falsely claim to associated with any organization. As you do not work for Creative Commons, you need to choose something different. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:24, 9 November 2021 (UTC)

Tharprocess1

  • @Cabayi: and obviously that's not the request, the request was to review the refusal of the requested rename. As I don't (and can't) know what new name Tharprocess1 had requested, I put in a placeholder. You didn't read the fine print in the Terms of use: "An alternative paid contribution policy will only supersede these requirements if it is approved by the relevant Project community and listed in the alternative disclosure policy page." The Commons policy is listed there. — Alexis Jazz (talk or ping me) 11:11, 3 December 2021 (UTC)
  • My apologies Alexis Jazz, I didn't realise Commons was that spam-friendly. Reopened the request. The requested username was Kirsten from Thar Process. Cabayi (talk) 11:20, 3 December 2021 (UTC)
    Thank you for reopening and adding the username that was requested. Commons isn't really spam-friendly, but there are various organizations (national archives, government agencies, museums, etc) who contribute media and Commons doesn't want procedural blocks or bureaucracy for them. Commons is different from most projects in that sense, there is no NPOV policy there either because it wouldn't make sense. Promotional content without educational value would still not be allowed on Commons. — Alexis Jazz (talk or ping me) 12:11, 3 December 2021 (UTC)
    Pinging @Ternarius, as they rejected request 85170. -- Jeff G. ツ (please ping or talk to me) 03:47, 21 December 2021 (UTC)
    @Jeff G.: I can only refer to what I wrote when I denied the request, namely that their current block on the English wiki wasn't only due to a promotional username, but also due to their edits, which were considered POV and promotional. I further interpreted the user's reason as stated in the request as that they weren't going to abstain from the POV activities that caused the block. If other namechangers should be of a different opinion I of course have no objections. / Ternarius (talk) 05:17, 21 December 2021 (UTC)
    @Tharprocess1:   Not done per Ternarius. -- Jeff G. ツ (please ping or talk to me) 08:36, 21 December 2021 (UTC)

Hulalup 2

@Hulalup:   On hold. In reference to this edit, what is your main account name? Why not use or rename that? -- Jeff G. ツ (please ping or talk to me) 02:47, 5 December 2021 (UTC)
It is really necessary? I don't want to be known my old name. Hulalup (talk) 11:38, 5 December 2021 (UTC)
@Hulalup: Yes. You may email it to me once you setup and confirm your email account. -- Jeff G. ツ (please ping or talk to me) 03:31, 6 December 2021 (UTC)
It seems that Hulalup doesn't want to use their previous name because it revealed too much about the person. If they email you the previous account and then you rename that account, wouldn't that then reveal the very thing they're trying to hide? kyykaarme (talk) 10:22, 19 December 2021 (UTC)
The requested username is Turkish Lira symbol also the account made one contribution at trwiki. As a GR and local trwiki sysop, I would like to involve in this request. There is lots of sockpupets in our wiki so Jeff G. please inform me when you confirm his/her former account. I do not want to identify, only want to be sure Hulalup is not a user who blocked before. Hulalup also feel free to contact me please if you want. Vincent Vega msg? 20:02, 19 December 2021 (UTC)
@Hulalup, Kyykaarme, and Vincent Vega: Given the above, I am not comfortable making this rename without a checkuser on Turkish Wikipedia. -- Jeff G. ツ (please ping or talk to me) 11:50, 20 December 2021 (UTC)
@Vincent Vega:, @Jeff G.:, I have done the check that was needed, there is no problem. e.c. 09:25, 21 December 2021 (UTC)
@Hulalup, Kyykaarme, and Vincent Vega: en:Wikipedia:Username policy#Non-script usernames Policy prohibits "Usernames that use any non-language symbols." -- Jeff G. ツ (please ping or talk to me) 13:16, 21 December 2021 (UTC)
  • Hulalup can you select another username please? Vincent Vega msg? 21:43, 21 December 2021 (UTC)
    I think at this point it would be easiest if Hulalup just abandons the username and registers a new one. They've made 10 edits in 18 months, and this renaming process has more edits than that. Seems a bit excessive amount of work for such a simple thing. kyykaarme (talk) 18:50, 22 December 2021 (UTC)
    Thats right Kyykaarme. I am going to reject if she/he will not answer soon (if Jeff G. do not take action before me or has an objection). Vincent Vega msg? 07:13, 23 December 2021 (UTC)
    That's probably for the best. I only commented here because I don't think that the global renamers should ask users for information about their previous or alternate accounts. It should be up to the local projects how they deal with clean starts, alternate accounts etc. (In this case there were additional "worries" but that was after Jeff G. had asked for the previous/main account.) It also wasn't clear to me what Jeff G. was going to do if Hulalup had sent the information to him by email. kyykaarme (talk) 08:34, 23 December 2021 (UTC)
    What I would do depends on how dirty the previous account(s) was/were globally. Perhaps it would be best if a Steward would address this, or if Hulalup understood that I have signed the VRTS users confidentiality agreement considering the Access to nonpublic personal data policy. -- Jeff G. ツ (please ping or talk to me) 11:43, 23 December 2021 (UTC)
  • No answer. Not done. Vincent Vega msg? 20:51, 29 December 2021 (UTC)

Requests involving merges, usurps or other complications

DantasAntony

@DantasAntony: The target account has valid edits and the source account is indefinitely blocked on Wikimedia Commons, which are both barriers to usurpation. Please choose another username and follow the instructions at c:User talk:DantasAntony#Your account has been blocked. -- Jeff G. ツ (please ping or talk to me) 12:00, 1 November 2021 (UTC)

Sherwood6

@1997kB: What do you think, 77 edits 13-15 years ago? -- Jeff G. ツ (please ping or talk to me) 04:16, 5 December 2021 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: That's way too much edits. The usurpation policy only allow to usurp abandoned account with zero edits/logs but we sometimes allow usurpations when the edit or logs are not in mainspace but in this case all of them are in mainspace so this username doesn't qualify for usurpation. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 05:08, 5 December 2021 (UTC)

User:Jeff G. Edits in one digit and with a large gap in time (2010 here) can be safely ignored. IMO we should grant this request. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:38, 9 November 2021 (UTC)

Tol

Hello. I am requesting to usurp three of these four usernames (traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese, Japanese hiragana, Cyrillic script) as doppelganger accounts — I am using these transliterations in my signature and wish to redirect them to my user page in multilingual wikis. The second account does not exist but I cannot create it because it is the simplified version of the first. I'm not sure if I have to create accounts which can then be renamed, or if you can just rename these accounts so I can create new accounts with these usernames. Thank you! Tol (talk | contribs) @ 19:08, 6 October 2021 (UTC)

You can request the creation of an account overriding antispoof through w:WP:ACC, for example. ~~~~
