En.wikipedia is currently locked. Please don't do non-urgent deletions on it.Edit

Dear Acalamari. As you may know, The English Wikipedia is currently locked up for 24 hours as a protest against SOPA and PIPA, so ordinary (non-steward) users cannot do any edits. It seems you have deleted some revisions like w:en:Wikipedia:Usernames for administrator attention/Bot on that project during this time. Even if the software have allowed you to do so, please refrain from doing "normal" administration work on en.wikipedia during the blockout. (Deleting pages or revisions to hide copyrighted content may be okay, if you really know what you're doing, but from the log summary it seems that's not what you're doing.) Be careful. Thanks, – b_jonas 14:02, 18 January 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes I do know. However, I did not think it would allow me to do it, which was why I chose something that I was going to delete once the blackout was over (the edit summaries in question contained a severe attack against another user). At any rate, I won't be doing it again: I hope this explanation is satisfactory and settles this. Best. Acalamari 14:45, 18 January 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you for your explanation. I don't wish to blame you about anything, I'm just writing to everyone because it seems at least two stewards have done accidental edits on en.wikipedia, not realizing they're able to do so only because they're stewards. – b_jonas 14:51, 18 January 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I understand. Thanks! Acalamari 15:10, 18 January 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Gwen GaleEdit

Hi Acalamari,

I saw you were proud to nominate Gwen Gale to be an admin on English Wiki, which makes me to believe you are her friend. So, as Gwen's friend maybe you'd be willing to read Requests for comment/Gwen Gale, and tell me if I got something wrong? And of course, if there's no response, I would assume I got everything right. Thanks.--Mbz1 02:01, 2 February 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi Mbz1, I'm not sure what you want me to correct you on: while I did nominate Gwen Gale for adminship close to four years ago and do consider her a friend, we actually rarely interact with one another and I don't follow her current activities (the same goes for everyone else I have nominated). Looking at your RfC, it seems you're more up to date with her recent work than I am; however, if your aim is to have Gwen Gale removed as an admin, while I can understand you highlighting any potential abuse of the tools, is it really necessary to bring up ancient history? (i.e. her pre-admin activity.)
Feel free to say if I have misunderstood you in any way. As for this edit, I will be keeping an eye out for more responses, now that I know you're posting here. Best. Acalamari 10:33, 3 February 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I really appreciate your response! To tell you the truth I'm not sure what I am looking for, but maybe I just need a sanity test. Best.--Mbz1 04:22, 4 February 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

username changeEdit

Hi Acalamari,

I wanted to change my name to NeuroSciGuy I was confused about the process and didn't know how to request this, hence the multiple block and unblocks!



BrooklyUniversity (talk) 17:10, 2 April 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi BrooklyUniversity, you've been renamed to NeuroSciGuy. :) Acalamari 11:55, 3 April 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Username change (2)Edit

Hi Acalamari,

Can I please request you to change my username to sjnisb. I don't know how to go about this.

Thank you,

Kind Regards.


Hi Naushaba9, I would be happy to carry out the rename; however, due to technical limitations, your new name would have to be "Sjnisb" rather than "sjnisb". Is that okay? Acalamari 23:10, 6 October 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, thats absolutely fine, in fact any username other than what I have now is fine. Please do. Thank you very much. :) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Naushaba9 (talk) 01:26, 7 October 2015‎ (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sjnisb, you are no longer called Naushaba9. Log in with the new account name (not the old one!) and you should be okay. :) Acalamari 09:48, 7 October 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No renaming between November 20 and November 27Edit


You’re getting this because you’re a steward or global renamer. The Community Tech team are working on cross-wiki watchlists. We need to add a couple of fields to the localuser table in centralauth database. In order to be able to do this, we’d need to run a script that will get in the way of renaming users. Our apologies – we realize this is getting in the way of your work.

We ask that you do not rename anyone between 00:00 November 20 (UTC) and 00:00 November 27 (UTC).

(UTC means that if you live in the Americas, it will be on the evening or afternoon of November 19 when the script starts running, and if you live in Oceania or eastern Asia, it can be closer midday on November 27 before we can be sure the script is no longer running.)

Phabricator task.

If there are any problems related to this, or you have any questions, please write me on my talk page. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 19:42, 17 November 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Reuben HeydenrychEdit

I created the above commons account for a user who wants to upload botanical images. But I forgot to go through the usual create account procedure. So his account/user page is currently not linked to his email or any password. Is it possible to delete the above commons page so that I can recreate it? Or what do you suggest?
