Change usernameEdit

Hi, Please can I change my username so it doesn't include my name. I tried the other day but the new name was rejected and I can't find the appropriate page to try again. Please advise how I go about doing this. Thanks —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Peter Francis Film Design (talk) 19:25, 14 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi, Please can I change my username so it doesn't include my name and year of birth. Kindly edit my username from "DIBUSA91" to "Hopefulug". The former username is so revealing of my personal confidential information. It was an oversight on my part when opening the user account. DIBUSA91 (talk) 08:34, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

Global renameEdit

Hi, I'm planning to change my username for privacy reasons. My question is, is there any limit like number of contributions? My current global contributions is about 80,000, and I'm an administrator in Indonesian Wikipedia, hence the high number. I'm asking about this since there was a user which got their global rename process stuck because they had 100,000 global contributions at the time. The process then had to be solved through Phabricator. Asking this just to make sure i wouldn't go through the same issue. -- Bagas Chrisara (talk) 07:42, 5 March 2020 (UTC)

@Bagas Chrisara: Well the process has improved alot since then, and there's no contributions limit now, so feel free to go for it. You can request at Special:GlobalRenameRequest. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 07:48, 5 March 2020 (UTC)

Problems with user Fr. Wiki AlainPainchaudEdit

Thank you for taking time to look at my request.

I am sorry to ask you that. In my opinion, it should have been resolved long time ago. I can not change because they block me and they would not do it. I insist, I DO NOT WANT TO BYPASS RESTRICTION, I WANT TO CHANGE USERNAME AND PARK ACCOUNT. Thank you for the other contacts. I will check if they are willing to help me. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by AlainPainchaud (talk) 08:15, 12 March 2020 (UTC)

Global renamer permission on Vietnamese WikipediaEdit

Hello, who should I contact to to get a renamer permission? Since the only renamer has retired for some reason and we don't have any renamer to handle that. Thanks! Phjtieudoc (talk) 01:20, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

Hey @Phjtieudoc:, You need to request at SRGP and for the information you will get rename permission for all wiki's not just Vietnamese. Although Trần Nguyễn Minh Huy hasn't retired yet, having a second renamer for Vietnamese wiki will be great as local page get good amount of request. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 03:54, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
