Renaming my usernameEdit

Hi 1997kB, could you please rename my user to fbglv? The request is right now on hold. Is it possible to have the username all lowercase? Thank you very much. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Fabio.galvagni (talk) 21:11, 3 January 2022‎ (UTC)

@Fabio.galvagni: No for technical reasons first letter in usernames is always uppercase. So if you are ok with first uppercase letter, should I process the rename now? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 23:45, 3 January 2022 (UTC)

How we will see unregistered usersEdit


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Hello, we have reached a consensus on starting a local rename page on AzWiki. Is there any procedure for this? Although I looked at the Global rename policy, I didn't see a note about it. --Turkmen talk 18:46, 7 March 2022 (UTC)

@Turkmen Nothing much but I would say just notify fellow renamers on Mailing List about the new page or maybe add it in header in Queue. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 07:10, 8 March 2022 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. Turkmen talk 18:28, 8 March 2022 (UTC)

@Anonymous215915 Just to let you know that with renaming the existing edit will still remain attached to your account and taking that into account there is no point in vanishing as your current username is still very anonymous. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:37, 19 April 2022 (UTC)

Miraheze account?Edit

Hi 1997kB,

I'm a Miraheze Steward, and I noticed that we have a new user account with a username [identical to yours]. Would you be able to confirm that this is your account (or not), by way of a reply?

Dmehus (talk) 05:30, 19 May 2022 (UTC)

@Dmehus It's not me. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 05:31, 19 May 2022 (UTC)

I Need HelpEdit

Hello @1997kB, sorry for coming to your wall to drop this. I was blocked on Wikidata by a checkuser (@Jasper Deng) on the 24th of June. The reason was that he said my account was a sock puppet and that was not the case. I was training new participants and i was using Faith Oyedepo as an example on how to create statements and items on Wikidata. When i opened the article and i started working on the article i expected the participants will watch what i was doing instead they were also in puting data at the same time with me. When i realised that is what they were doing it was a little late. I had to explain to them you don't work on the same article. I don't have a multiple account and we will never intentionally want to vandalise Wikidata. It is our home where we keep our valuable records. We can only protect it. We are only organising a training for new participants to start using Wikidata and contributing to free knowledge. We are sorry if we went over board with our training. I can assure you we are not Sock Puppets but participants who are enthusiastic about Wikipedia, Wikidata. This is the list of people that were blocked

1.Jerome1506 2.Perperment22 3.dupsylondon3 4.Oladamglobal 5.Salvadoryetty 6.Olubukunmi 7.Arowosola60 8. Philgbemio 9. Jerachin24 10 Busybee1812. They all are participants in the training.

Our meta page: WikiGlam Awareness for Librarians in Lagos State#Participants. The training is still ongoing. I have sent messages @Jasper Deng but no response. I joined the Wikidata Telegram group and also dropped a message for him there all he said was he has not seen the mail and i should explain the similarities. I sent an appeal to @DannyS712, to @User:علاء(Alaa),. Please kindly help. I have been with this block so also our new participants. We do not use multiple accounts, I am a community leader and i train people on how to use Wikipedia. I am sorry if i made a mistake. I hope this mistake can be forgiven. Thanks for your understanding and good work. Semmy1960 (talk) 10:48, 17 July 2022 (UTC)

@Semmy1960 Please wait as another CU is looking on it ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:40, 17 July 2022 (UTC)

I Need HelpEdit

Hello @1997kB, sorry for coming to your wall to drop this. I was blocked on Wikidata by you. The reason was that you said my account was a promotion-only account and that was not the case. I was putting myself in the wikidata base to give google a better understanding that I was a artist like Lecrae, Derek Minor, Andy Mineo etc. If you could please consider removing this block I would be very grateful Sapierce56 (talk) 22:41, 15 August 2022 (UTC)

@Sapierce56 Please follow instructions at your wikidata talk page. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:59, 16 August 2022 (UTC)

Hello.I have Requested for changing username.Could you please do it?Medifff (talk) 11:10, 26 August 2022 (UTC)

Rename RequestEdit

Hi 1997kB. I recently requested a usurpation of the username "Homeostasis" and it was declined, however I don't understand why. I was wondering if you could explain why and let me know if it's still possible for me to get that username. ThePlug111 (talk) 23:47, 2 September 2022 (UTC)

@ThePlug111 Hi, it was declined because you were renamed just hours before that request. Multiple request in such short timespan are considered frivolous and generally rejected. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 05:12, 3 September 2022 (UTC)
Okay, thanks for clarifying that. Is there a certain length of time I should wait before submitting another request? I definitely would prefer that username over my current one. ThePlug111 (talk) 16:00, 3 September 2022 (UTC)
@ThePlug111 Yeah, you should wait at-least 6 months. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:03, 4 September 2022 (UTC)
