Hi WJBscribe. Just wanted to inform you that Matanya added you to the global renamer user group today, thus you are now able to globally rename accounts via Special:GlobalRenameUser. Good luck and if you ever have any questions, do not hesitate to ask of course! Trijnsteltalk 16:28, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
Mailing list for global renamersEdit
Dear global renamer,
We have created a mailing list for us to allow easy communication. Please subscribe here and send me or Trijnstel an email to confirm it is you requesting it. Additionally, you might be interested to know of the existance of the #wikimedia-rename IRC channel where you are welcome to join. Should you have any questions, feel free to use my talk page.
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.
(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.)
