Refused username change for group-usageEdit

Hi, I requested a username change because a friend of mine can translate from japanese, and I wanted to change this user to something less specific to me. As I said in the form, I would be the only one to actually edit and add pages, he would only translate for me documents/pages without even logging in. He doesn't even know the email and password associated to this account. Is there anything that could be done? Thanks.

  • Is there anyone that can answer? Can I simply ask for an usurpation for the username "Owari" if I'm the only one actually logging in? –Lorgra93 (talk) 18:17, 6 May 2021 (UTC)
Lorgra93, hello. I'm not sure but I think this may lead your account to get locked globally. --Hulged†alk⟩ 06:24, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
I'm sorry but I don't understand... I'm simply being transparent with my intentions. We're working toghether, but I'm the only one logging in and posting content. I don't understand what's wrong with that. –Lorgra93 (talk) 10:18, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
Lorgra93, there is another option for you to keep editing and whatever you want (I mean translating and other things) to do from your account (Lorgra93) and ask your friend to make another account for them from which they can translate to the Japanese. Two persons can't use the same account. No, it is not possible. Hulged†alk⟩ 10:43, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
He simply doesn't have the technical skills to create and edit pages. I do that for him. If we can't do this, then our project is already over with or without a new username... –Lorgra93 (talk) 09:04, 9 May 2021 (UTC)
Lorgra93, Well bottom line is that shared accounts are not allowed. I'd recommend to create a separate account for your friend and help him learning basic technical skill required to operate an account. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:36, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

Rejected Username ChangeEdit

Why did my change from BasedMises to Quantitative Easing get rejected? It seems quite arbitrary. BasedMises (talk) 17:21, 18 May 2021 (UTC)
