Renaming my account Edit


Many years ago I had an account named “Mamduh” all over Wikipedia, and a few years ago I had it changed to “MatthewS.” (dot included) all over Wikipedia too. Today by chance I was taking a look at a photo I uploaded to Wiki in 2008, and noticed it associated with my old user name. Is it possible to please rename user page “Mamduh” to “MatthewS.” (again, dot included) to match my identity elsewhere on Wikipedia?

Thanks a lot

@MatthewS. The only picture I could find from your account is c:File:شعار الجامعة الأهلية الفرنسية في مصر.png and it has your username correct. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 10:44, 10 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I uploaded the above photo back in 2008.

@MatthewS. Your username used to be "Mamdu" not Mamduh. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:28, 11 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It was "Mamduh", then "Mamdu", then "MatthewS." The same account was renamed twice. If you'd like to confirm this, if you go to on the English Wikipedia, it will redirect you to MatthewS., and if you go to it will also redirect you to MatthewS. So all are one and the same, the only problem now is that on "" the change is only reflected on one of them (Mamdu). I just want "Mamduh" (with an H) on Meta Wiki to also redirect to MatthewS. Thanks. MatthewS. (talk) 22:52, 11 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@MatthewS. Pre 2014 account used to be specific to wiki, after that they became global. Since you had your first name change before 2014, it's wasn't global which means that you only got Mamdu on English wiki and rest of your accounts were still Mamduh and after 2014 since you had Mamdu already, that became your global username and some other Mamduh (or probably you) got the global Mamduh account.
Now the only solution I see to your problem is that if Mamduh used to be your account that got converted to global one then you can login it to one of your old password and then we can fix it and if it's not your account then we can't do much here. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 00:05, 12 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok. I was able to log in to the account. What do I need to do now to merge it with “MatthewS.”? Thanks for your help. Mamduh (talk) 05:30, 14 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Mamduh @MatthewS. Looking at your edits on both of the accounts it looks like there's not much we can do here. Merging is technically not possible with Wikipedia software but we do local renaming. Since you have edits on same wikis on both of your account, the local renaming won't achieve nothing. For that to be effective one of the local account should have zero edits. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:12, 15 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
