User:El Muñeco Shakes It Up, BabyUser:Diego Grez

The privacy concern I had is over, after some kind of "agreement" with the person who was stalking. I'm sorry if this rename does disturb you once more, dear Bureaucrats. =D El Muñeco Shakes It Up, Baby 02:56, 5 January 2011 (UTC)

The software says User:Diego Grez already exists and will not allow renaming. Sorry. —Stephen (Talk) 23:09, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
Right! Exactly for that reason, please rename this account User:Diego Grez to something like User:Diego Grez (usurped) (?) and then rename El Muñeco blah blah to Diego Grez. I know, I have been annoying you all with several rename requests, but I am sure this will be the last. There was a problem that I have solved in the past few weeks, and I hope you understand. Thank you :) Diego Grez 19:15, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
Done. —Stephen (Talk) 01:03, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
Many thanks! Diego Grez 22:27, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

I am "Anachronist" on most projects except Wikipedia, where I am an administrator known as Amatulic. Since "Anachronist" was taken there and I am unable to usurp that as my preferred username, I am renaming my accounts on the various projects to my Wikipedia admin name Amatulic, to facilitate global login. Here is a diff showing my identity. ~Anachronist (talk) 23:38, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

usurpation of User:Joy

Hi, this is en:User:Joy, I'm trying to figure out what happened to this account that looks like it's actually mine. Special:Contributions/Joy lists e.g. this edit changing something about Migrations Period on 2005-07-07 whereas I did something analogous on enwiki on 2005-06-28 - so it's got to be me, but my old password doesn't work. I tried emailing myself a new password, but goodness knows where that went - it was six years ago, I don't know if I even had an email configured on this account, or maybe it was an e-mail address that doesn't work any more (something @srce.hr perhaps?). Please help. TIA. Also, here is the SUL confirmation. --Joy-temporary 10:21, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Done. (Joy-temporary renamed to Joy). SemperBlotto 10:24, 1 August 2011 (UTC)


I request that my username be changed from "Slipknot1" to "A7x". The reason is to maintain consistency with my other accounts in other Wikimedia projects. I also confirm that I am "A7x" on Meta, Commons and Simple Wikipedia. Thank you and regards, —§ stay (sic)! 05:35, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Done. —Stephen (Talk) 06:06, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
Many thanks Stephen.  :) —stay (sic)! 07:02, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

User:White CatUser:とある白い猫

I am globally requesting rename for SUL purposes the change of my user name to とある白い猫. Thanks! -- Cat chi? 13:38, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

  • User:とある白い猫 already exists here. SemperBlotto 16:55, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
    • It was certainly created when the user came over here without logging out as it was created automatically recently and has no edits. I presume the user can simply post a confirmation edit using the とある白い猫 account to abandon the account and get renamed (then the user will have to manually merge the SUL account.--BewareofDoug(talk contribs) 20:32, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
Okay, done. —Stephen (Talk) 05:06, 19 October 2011 (UTC)


Please help me to usurp the username ClaretAsh. I was recently renamed on Wikipedia and wish to do the same on the other projects.

Hi, I'd like to avoid conflicts of interests with an existing company. If you could help with this name change, it would be much appreciated!

Done. However, it automatically capitalizes the name: User:Pairofpears38. Hope that’s okay. —Stephen (Talk) 00:27, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
Perfect, thanks!—Pearofpears38 2 November 2011


Templates break at the * in my old username, so I try to change it everywhere, to get SUL back with the new name, too. *Sebi* 18:28, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

User:thedeceiverukUser:The Deceiver UK

When setting up the account for our bands page we put in thedeceiveruk when really we want the search for the page to be The Deceiver UK

Thank you

Request has not been signed. You seem to have made no contributions anywhere under either name, and User:The Deceiver UK seems not to exist yet, so just stop using the old name and start using the new one. Nobody needs to change anything. —Stephen (Talk) 05:51, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

Usurpation of User:Bernard

Hi. I am the owner of the Bernard SUL-account and I wish to usurp this account. Here is the confirm. Thanks. A note was left on the user's talk page. User had only 2 edits, the last one in 2007. 13:52, 25 November 2011 (UTC)

Creo que sea necesario iniciar sesión usando un nombre de usuario temporal, tal como User:Bernardtemp. —Stephen (Talk) 14:19, 25 November 2011 (UTC)
Done. :) Bernartemp 15:47, 25 November 2011 (UTC)
And done. —Stephen (Talk) 16:10, 25 November 2011 (UTC)


Please see [diff] for confirmation. Please do not delete the GreenPine account, just usurp Pine so that I can link the Wiktionary Pine account to the Pine SUL. I may also use the GreenPine SUL because GreenPine is unique on all Wikimedia sites, while my preferred name of Pine only has access to some sites through SUL, so I want to keep GreenPine active and usurp Wiktionary's Pine account to the Pine SUL. The Pine usurp has been completed on several other Wikimedia sites but not all of them. Thank you. GreenPine 07:49, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

User:GreenPine is a global account. Renaming it will cause the local user to be detached from the global one. Is that what you want? If you do not want User:GreenPine to be renamed, then I think you need to log in with a temporary name, such as User:Pinetemp. Then I can rename that one and not touch User:GreenPine. —Stephen (Talk) 07:57, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
OK I created user:Pinetemp per your suggestion. Please rename that to Pine. I will sign this with both GreenPine and Pine to show that I'm the one making this request. Pinetemp 23:20, 26 November 2011 (UTC) GreenPine 23:21, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
Done. —Stephen (Talk) 10:33, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Pundit (temporary)User:Pundit

I'm Pundit from en-wiki and pl-wiki (where I currently serve as an admin and a bureaucrat). I'd like to finally unify my accounts, this one seems to be the only one that needs action (and a number of edits justifying usurpation). Pundit (temporary) 02:43, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

I have an account 'Mahir256' registered as a SUL on Wikipedia, and it works on other languages and projects, but for some reason it does not work on this one. w:User:Mahir256 is my current user page on Wikipedia, if you need it. I should assume that my SUL password will work this time once the change has been done. --Mahirtemp 03:23, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

Done. Is it working now? —Stephen (Talk) 07:58, 1 December 2011 (UTC)


I have an account named Entropy registered as a SUL on Wikipedia. An account exists with this username here, but that user has not made any contributions.
