I would like to move all my Soxred93 contributions over to my X! username, as that is the name I use for many other Wikimedia Wikis. Both are on SUL. Soxred93 15:16, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

I confirm that we are the same person. X! 15:17, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Done. SemperBlotto 14:45, 6 February 2009 (UTC)


I would like to use global account (my home wiki is cs - cs:Wikipedista:Harold), but I need to usurp this account at en.wiktionary. User:Harold has no contributions. Thank you. --Harold-cs 21:54, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

User:Ethan0User:Ethan (usurp)

I am attempting to unify my SUL Account. The current User:Ethan has been inactive for over 3 years. They have edits to resolution 3.2 years ago but I don't know if that's enough to be significant for usurpation. Identity-confirming post on my SUL home-wiki: diff. -Ethan (talk) • 2008-12-28 02:11 (UTC)

If I may quote from the above instructions: “Please add {{renamed}} or similar to their talk page. If that account has email enabled, please email them and explain the situation. Wait for a week after giving notification for any objections, then post the result here.” (In this case, the account doesn't have e-mail enabled, so that part doesn't apply, but the rest does.) —RuakhTALK 16:09, 28 December 2008 (UTC)
I did see this, but then was confused when I looked at {{renamed}} because it says "Your user name has been changed at the request of someone who has this user name elsewhere" - this seems like something that should go there afterward. Instead I have modified w:template:usurpation requested for this wiki, and have put that on their talk page. -Ethan (talk) • 2008-12-28 17:59 (UTC)
Perfect, thank you. :-)   —RuakhTALK 00:22, 29 December 2008 (UTC)
It's been over seven days since that was posted, and no response. hopefully the account can be usurped now? thanks. -Ethan (talk) • 2009-01-07 00:39 (UTC)


Trying to unify a SUL account. My home account is w:fi:User:Jmk, for verification check this diff. Target user has no edits, and has not objected in 7 days.--Jmkfi 12:51, 23 January 2009 (UTC)


I would like to change my user name on Wiktionary as I am trying to get a unified login for all wikis. Wiktionary seems to be the only wiki that is holding out, apparently not because my precise requested new user name is taken, but because there is a similar one in existence. I wish to retain the same password. Thanks for assistance. Siamang 04:25, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Done. SemperBlotto 17:25, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
    • Thanks, SemperBlotto; I appreciate your quick response. Maias 00:22, 9 February 2009 (UTC)


Looking to merge useraccount names for SUL. See wikipedia:User:Ellipsis/SUL.

User:Zeke sq-NUser:Zeke

I am trying to get a unified login for all wikis. Could you please merge my accounts? Thanks --Zeke sq-N 16:57, 15 February 2009 (UTC) (contrib,talk) → User:Beany

I'd like to Usurp this account. 20:36, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

User:MfisheUser:God Emperor

God emperor has no userpage, no contributions and had no talk page until I posted a request there. Wiktionary is the only wiki on which I do not have this username. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User%3AGod_Emperor%2Funification&diff=271316489&oldid=271316273. Mfishe 10:35, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Unified login usurpation → User:Moon

Hi there, please can I usurp the account User:Moon to unify my accounts. I left a message on that user's talk page and waited 7 days. I've left a message on my talk page at w:kw:User talk:Moon to show that it's me making the request. Not sure if I was supposed to register here to make this request. Many thanks, w:kw:User:Moon -- 11:29, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

  • OK - ready for you now. SemperBlotto 16:31, 12 March 2009 (UTC)


Merging account, For a diff see here. -- XBeanyx 13:18, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Done. (Old User:Beany had not edited for years) SemperBlotto 13:22, 7 April 2009 (UTC)


I'm a Commons admin and very often active in dupe replacing in the WMF-projects. Until now I thought the wiktionarys are projects where I never have to edit in this capacity, but I just learned that even Wiktionary is sometimes using images which need manual replacement. Since the user Cecil here has just registered the account in 2006 but never used it, I would like to usurp it for my SUL. -- CecilK 07:42, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

SUL request → User:Highlander

Hi, I'm user Highlander from fr.wikipedia.org and I'm in the process of creating a Single User Login. I can't login on en.wiktionary.org as there already is a "Highlander" account here which doesn't have any edit at all, so I want to usurp this account on en.wiktionary.org. I don't have an account here under another login, so I'm posting this under my IP. I've had subst:usurpation requested to User talk:Highlander and will wait for a reponse. I've made a diff on fr.wikipedia.org to acknowledge that's really me who's making the request. Thanks. 18:44, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

  • Renamed. User was very, very old and had never made any edits. SemperBlotto 18:56, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for this quick response, SemperBlotto. Highlander 19:51, 14 April 2009 (UTC)


I am moving all my project accounts to a less revealing username to reduce risk of harassment. See meta:User:Teahot/matrix. Ashleyvh 14:25, 16 April 2009 (UTC)

  • A User with the name Teahot already exists (but has made no contributions). SemperBlotto#
I can see that's my account which seems to have been set up as part of the new unified system. How do I get my old account's history merged while it's still blank (yes I am User:Ashleyvh)? Teahot 19:10, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
You've only had a couple of minor edits two years ago. Why not just forget about it? SemperBlotto 21:04, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
Okay, was just harmonizing for completeness. Teahot 11:52, 18 April 2009 (UTC)


Hello, i'd like my account renamed since my main account has been renamed on fr.wikipedia. Thanks ! --JY Rehby 13:03, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

User:Pantherauncia => User:Snowleopard

SUL Dmitriy

Hello! I own the SUL account for username Dmitriy ([1]). The username is taken here, but this user has 0 edit. Could you please consider renaming this account? Thanks in advance. --Dmitriy ( 21:25, 5 May 2009 (UTC))

Thanks! --Dmitriy 21:49, 5 May 2009 (UTC)


I am Logan on en.wikipedia, and since Computerwiz908 is an SUL, I have to log out of it every time I use Wikipedia.

Account usurpation request for SUL. I posted request for usurpation at the user talk page on May 4, and the current account holder didn't replied for over 7 days. This account has no contribution for over 2 year period. Thanks in advance. --Kerilka 11:30, 11 May 2009 (UTC)


I wish to unify SUL. MathCool10 03:45, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

User:American Eagle (temp)User:AEBot

The changed username will be a new bot (not in use on this project yet), and don't want to register a fourth account. (I'm User:American Eagle's alternate account.) Thanks. American Eagle (temp) 03:24, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

  • Done. Remember we need to vote before the bot can be activated. SemperBlotto 07:10, 17 May 2009 (UTC)


I use the username Frisko at over 60 Wikimedia projects. Here on Wiktionary Frisko has not made a single edit, so I thought that I maybe could take over it. /Frisko93 11:10, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Usurp User:Gigs

Hi, I would like to Usurp User:Gigs for unified login purposes. It seems to be an inactive account. w:en:User:Gigs 17:06, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

  • OK - ready for you. SemperBlotto 10:16, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks --Dancer 00:31, 26 June 2009 (UTC)


I'm D'Agosta on Wikipedia (diff) and D'Agosta on Wikimedia Commons (revision). I'm not sure, but I seem to remember having trouble with the apostrophe character in my name here (probably to prevent SQL injections), so if that's a problem, let me know. —DAgosta ( TC ) 12:55, 29 June 2009 (UTC)



Having changed my username at en.wiki, I have realised that it hasn't changed my SUL. I would therefore like to merge all existing accounts to the new username in order to re-establish a SUL. Many thanks.Mdcollins1984 01:57, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Providing a diff, as it logged me back in as my old username at en.wiki. Grr. Here it is. 02:16, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Usurpation User:PizzaManTemporaryUser:PizzaMan

To fit my SUL. I'm PizzaMan on other wiki's, mostly the NL and EN wikipedia. The person who registered this account has done so in 2006 and not made a single edit since. PizzaManTemporary 14:33, 7 July 2009 (UTC) (or should we still go through the procedure of placing a message on the page and waiting for 7 days?)


Wordsmith was my first choice when I first created an account at Wikipedia. It was taken then. It's taken now, but never used for anything anywhere. Please replace the name I cobbled from German for "one who appreciates words" (Wortschätzer) to the name I've formally filed today for usurpation at Wikipedia: Wordsmith, please. Болшое спосибо!

Thank you, SemperBlotto.

I am trying to get a unified account and use Plumber as my main wiki name elsewhere. Don Quixtote 23:34, 6 August 2009 (UTC)


I would like to change my username because I don't want anything personal, such as my name, to be associated with my account. I would like to stay anonymous. Arvin 00:24, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

  • You need to choose a new name that starts with a capital letter. SemperBlotto 07:07, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
User:Placebo then, please. Arvin 23:30, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

I want to change my username at all wikis where I have edits to later merge them into one. Thanks beforehand, McCharraigin 17:05, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

User:Usurping GeorgeUser:George

Hi, I'm the user George from the English Wikipedia, where I have over 5,000 edits. My diff can be found here. I'm also the SUL account holder, and would like to usurp this account. The local user George has one edit ever, in June 2006. I've notified them on their talk page, but a response seems highly unlikely. I'll check back in a week. Thank you. Usurpring George 20:45, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

  • User:George is now available. (User:UsurpingGeorge does not actually exist) SemperBlotto 21:17, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks much. George 07:22, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

Usurp: User:Hexagon1User:Happenstance

I've dropped a request over at their talk, but I'd be very surprised if anything came of it. Here is the diff proving I'm Happenstance over at enwiki. Target user has 0 edits and registered 30 January 2006. +Hexagon1 (t) 12:48, 24 September 2009 (UTC)


my username last name is Barros not barros how we can change it? thks. —This comment was unsigned.


Changing my Unified account. -- Mjquin id 03:51, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, account created, but I moved my userpage? -- Mjquinn id 01:33, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

  • As it says at the top of this page, you can always just create the new account and abandon the old one. There's no real harm in leaving the old account around unless someone decides they need the old account for some reason, which is very uncommon. --EncycloPetey 01:43, 15 October 2009 (UTC)

SUL Request → User:Crackerjack


I'm trying to obtain the username "Crackerjack" for SUL. So far I have claimed it on en., sv., and commons. There are still (apparently unused) accounts on ja, wikitionary, and wikiversity. Can the current User:Crackerjack on Wikitionary be moved out of the way? Authenticated note on my EN talk page is here.

Thanks! 17:25, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

SUL Request → User:Dlonra

Hello, I would like to usurp the account Dlonra for SUL purpose. The account was created two years ago with no edits. I had put a message two weeks ago on his talk page and made this edit in de.wikipedia.org. Could you please rename the account. - 14:18, 27 October 2009 (UTC) w:de:Benutzer:Dlonra

Thanks - Dlonra 15:55, 27 October 2009 (UTC)


My homewiki is Japanese wikipedia. I'd like to usurper in order to unify my account. (verification) Opening User talk:igitur says 'User account "igitur" is not registered. Please check if you want to create/edit this page.', so I'm not sure if this user name is really taken. Thank you! --Igitu 15:06, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

  • Done (you tried lowercase "igitur" not uppercase "Igitur"). SemperBlotto 15:11, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
    • Oh fool of me. Thank you very much! --Igitur 15:17, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

Usurpation of user name "Pavlik" for SUL. Here is the confirmation link: [3]


Biofilic,LLC is my company name. I was unaware of the username policy. I propose changing my username to Biophilia.

SUL Request → User:Wilstrup


I'm trying to obtain the username "Wilstrup" for SUL. A long time ago, I registered Wilstup on wiktionary, but I can't remember either the password or the email I registered it under. Can it be moved out of the way? Signed note on my EN talk page is [4].

  • OK - go for it. SemperBlotto 22:28, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

SUL Request → User:Oneiros

Hello, I would like to usurp the account oneiros for SUL purpose. The account was created five years ago with nine edits on the first two days, none since. I've put a message on the talk page and made this edit. Could you please rename the account. -- 21:26, 18 November 2009 (UTC) w:en:User:Oneiros

  • OK - go for it. SemperBlotto 08:07, 29 November 2009 (UTC)


SUL request. I am fairly sure I registered User:Sbb here a long time ago, but if I did, I obviously did not used my current email address for verification (clicking on "Forgot Password?" button doesn't send an email to my account). My diff on en.wikipedia.org. Thank you in advance for your help.
