Hi, I would like to complete the unification of my accounts under the Username:Moises. My home wiki discussion page is w:ca:Usuari Discussió:Moises, and there is the confirmation of my request.

I need to change my USERID for consistency across Wiki projects. I have already changed my ID at English Wikipedia and at Wikicommons. I am currently Odea here at Wiktionary but I wish to become O'Dea and to have my contribution history attributed to my new identity. I have recently logged into my Wikipedia talk page using both identities to verify my identity and request. Thank you. Odea 15:59, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

I have been renamed on almost all other wikis where I am active (wikispecies being the only exception for the moment), could this be done here, too? Thanks! --Guillaume2303 20:16, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

Done. —Stephen (Talk) 15:02, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

User:Rajai.atoutUser:Rajai Atout[edit]

please change my user name


I would like to ursurp User:Steak, so that I can process to unify this username on all projects with SUL. User Steak has done only few edits on his user page. I have asked him one week ago, but he didnt answer (see User talk:Steak) and he has no wiki mail. Confirmation, that I am User Steak in nearly all other projects is here.

Was renamed on en-wiki so would like to be renamed here in order to unify my accounts across all projects. --B.wilson 10:37, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

User:Immer in BewegungUser:IIBewegung[edit]

Global change. Confirmation at w:en:User_talk:IIBewegung. I'm going to start participating in German (de.wik*) projects and would like to change my username in all of the existing wiki accounts to something that's is not a word or a phrase in German (or in any other language). It will make my records in Talk and History pages less distracting.


My current name is ugly and hard to spell. The new name has great sentimental value to me. Ephemeronium 14:46, 11 February 2012 (UTC)

Done. —Stephen (Talk) 15:10, 11 February 2012 (UTC)


Usurpation request. Note that this request is to verify the renaming of this username for a global rename of this account; don't rename this account, but rename that account (for now). Thanks. Hurricanefan25 19:20, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

User:Echo is not very active, but has made the occasional edit in various wikis for some years. His latest activity was this month. See User:Echo. Why don’t you choose another name? —Stephen (Talk) 23:28, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
I belive you overlooked it - scwiki has edits, but this one doesn't. Hurricanefan25 21:36, 16 February 2012 (UTC)
No, I saw it. svwiki has a very recent edit, but not enwiktionary. What does that matter? User:Echo has the right to his username on every wiki, including the ones where he does not edit. If you want to contact User:Echo directly and ask him if you can take away his name (on all wikis), then if he agrees, I can do it. —Stephen (Talk) 21:47, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

User:MaltrobatUser:Santi Gomà[edit]

I'm renaming my old name in all wiki projects for my real name. Please, rename my name here too. And please, lock my old name if it's possible.--Maltrobat 11:57, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Done. —Stephen (Talk) 00:07, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
Thank you very much, Stephen!--Santi Gomà (talk) 15:52, 24 February 2012 (UTC)


I started using Wikipedia with this pseudonym, but as I now start collaborating with professional "offline"-collegues on (mathematical) wiki-pages, I get tired of explainig who I am - and with wiki-experience I now also feel more comfortable disclosing my real name.

It would be important to me, that also old posts would appear with the new Signature or the renaming is "officially documented", as I'll use my texts also as introduction in scientific publications (and if possible please lock my old name).

If you have an "easier solution", please give me an advice :-) Thanx in advance for your help! --Pacman 2.0 (talk) 20:39, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

Hmm, I don't think all your signatures can be retroactively changed. (What on Earth did you do on Wiktionary that relates to scientific publications?) Equinox 20:45, 6 March 2012 (UTC)
What is your username, User:Pacman2.0 or User:Pacman 2.0? Neither of these names has ever been used before on en.wiktionary. I can change your username if you want me to, but first I need to know exactly what your username is. —Stephen (Talk) 09:29, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

I am active in ml.wikipedia . help me to complete SUL . conformation link:http://ml.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=%E0%B4%89%E0%B4%AA%E0%B4%AF%E0%B5%8B%E0%B4%95%E0%B5%8D%E0%B4%A4%E0%B4%BE%E0%B4%B5%E0%B4%BF%E0%B4%A8%E0%B5%8D%E0%B4%B1%E0%B5%86_%E0%B4%B8%E0%B4%82%E0%B4%B5%E0%B4%BE%E0%B4%A6%E0%B4%82%3ADeepak&diff=1205619&oldid=1202403 -- 03:27, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

I’m not sure that I understand. Do you mean that you want to usurp the existing name User:Deepak? If so, I think you need to create a different name here first. I can’t change User: to User:Deepak. If you are wanting to usurp User:Deepak, create a temporary username first. —Stephen (Talk) 06:42, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Your account, w:User:Alexk98, has be indefinitely blocked as a vandalism-only account. Your other account, w:User:ILikeTurtlez, is likewise blocked for the same reasons. We can’t help you here. —Stephen (Talk) 19:26, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

User:Voyagerfan5761User:Dgw (SUL, self-usurp)[edit]

I got a rename on my home wiki (En.WP) and then visited other Wikimedia wikis like this one while logged in to my new SUL account, which of course created new accounts where I hadn't yet gotten renames. "Dgw" here is me, the result of such an auto-creation. I would greatly appreciate it if my two accounts (Dgw and Voyagerfan5761) could be swapped, so my SUL will continue to work.

In a moment, I will make sure that my English Wikipedia talk page contains a confirmation of this usurpation request in an HTML comment.

Let me know if I need to provide any more information, and thanks for helping. We love you, bureaucrats! :) Tuvok[T@lk/Wikipedia] 18:01, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Done. —Stephen (Talk) 02:31, 24 March 2012 (UTC)


My username has been changed on the English Wikipedia, I'd like to have the same username here. Styath (talk) 19:39, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

I use SankarVaiyapuri as my username in many of the sites and i have a plan to join as wikimedia member and before that i would like to change the username. Thanks in advance..

I would like change my username as the one which is professional. Thanks in advance..

I recently usurped this username at English Wikipedia, and will follow the procedure to prove ownership on my talk page there. A usurp request is in progress on Wikimedia Commons. The old name is a little childish, and I feel it no longer represents me. Thanks :) Chicken7 (talk) 11:23, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Done. —Stephen (Talk) 11:38, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. Very speedy service here; Wikipedia took 2 weeks! Cheers, Chicken7 (talk) 12:07, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

User:Pilcrow → User:Æ&Œ[edit]

¶ I used ‘Pilcrow’ because of Doremítzwr, who is now retired, so hopefully he sha’n’t mind me changing, & I didn’t think that this Title suited me so well in the first Place. My current Username also, in my Opinion, carries an unpleasant Stigma. This new Title should reflect a peculiar Interest of mine. It is also more recognisable by my Friends & Allies ; I use it on other ‘Wiktionaries’. --Pilcrow (talk) 21:52, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Done. —Stephen (Talk) 22:37, 28 June 2012 (UTC)


I am no longer using the current username and I want to move my contributions to the new username I propose above. I have the SUL account, so if you rename the old username, I am no longer listed on SUL without logging in to that account on the English Wiktionary. Reason is m:Right to vanish. --ADNghiem501 (talk) 02:07, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

Done. —Stephen (Talk) 02:14, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

Remove chris55[edit]

Can you please delete user:Chris55. I made it some years back using an email address I no longer have access to cannot remember the password. I can't log in here obviously but left a message on the user page a few days back. —This comment was unsigned.

I don't know if that's possible but I'll indef. block the account so that it can't pose a threat in the event a hacker did get access to it. 50 Xylophone Players talk 13:01, 9 July 2012 (UTC)


Renaming wikiwide in order to obtain a shorter and faster to write username. Asking for rename in several wikis. --Siciliano Edivad (talk) 01:26, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Perché non avete cambiato il Suo nome d’utente nel wiki italiano? Il nome it:Utente:.sEdivad non è nemmeno lì registrati. Questo cambiamento non è menzionato sulla pagina di it:Discussioni utente:Siciliano Edivad. —Stephen (Talk) 04:31, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Posso parlare in italiano, vero? Ho fatto richiesta in diverse wiki, ma sinora la rinomina non è stata eseguita in tutte. Puoi trovare qualche conferma qui: [1] [2] [3] Ciao! --Siciliano Edivad (talk) 12:31, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Bene, grazie. L’ho fatto. —Stephen (Talk) 13:20, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

To resolve SUL conflict. Accounts on en.wikipedia (home wiki) and commons are already renamed. I have done (or will do shortly) similar requests on all relevant projects.

Done. —Stephen (Talk) 02:56, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

User:Cyrax CyborgUser:Cyrax[edit]

I changed my nick in es.wikt and need to make a global unification. It is true that I have very few editions but I need to usurp this nick. Also this account is very very old (2006) so that the owner of this is not going to use. Greetings.--Cyrax Cyborg (talk) 21:13, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, the original owner of the name User:Cyrax wishes to keep that name. —Stephen (Talk) 05:31, 25 October 2012 (UTC)


Messaged the user at User_talk:Czar over a week ago and haven't heard an objection. I own the "Czar" SUL and am unifying all "Czar" usernames per the Commons usurp process. (Proof of Ownership) Thank you Mxdxcxnx (talk) 16:49, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

  • Done. SemperBlotto (talk) 16:52, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

Self-Usurpation: User:MemeticsUser:Memetics[edit]

I own the global user name Memetics. Apparently I had created a Wiktionary account years ago but only used it once, and am not able to locate the email or password I had used for the account. (I.e., I asked for password reset but never received the email at any of my active email accounts.) I would like to complete SUL conversion (see here), so I'd like to self-usurp (hopefully that's the right thing to request) and merge the Wiktionary account into my global SUL account. I've recorded this IP on my Memetics user page on Wikipedia for confirmation. 06:44, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

I think you have to create a temporary username here first, such as User:Memetics(temp). Then I can change that to Memetics. —Stephen (Talk) 07:14, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
Here you go... Memetics temp (talk) 07:47, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
Thanks kindly! And thanks for the quick response! :-) Memetics (talk) 08:07, 11 November 2012 (UTC) [re-signed with correct SUL'd account. :-)]

User:Gusta100 renamed to User:Gusta. —Stephen (Talk) 00:25, 16 November 2012 (UTC)


I would like to rename myself to this project. Already renamed on Commons. Here are the Confirmation diffs. Thanks --Katarighe (Talk · Contributions · E-mail) 06:15, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

This looks like a usurp request. Is that correct? —Stephen (Talk) 08:14, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
Never mind, I will just use my other account. Sorry for the interruption. --Katarighe (Talk · Contributions · E-mail) 07:03, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

--Shirou15 (talk) 00:00, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Hi, User:Shirou15. It appears that someone is already using Masahiro Naoi. Are you requesting to usurp that name? Does Masahiro Naoi agree to this? —Stephen (Talk) 11:37, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

User:None (usurp)→ User:Dj[edit]

I'd like to unify my account. Here is the confirmation link. User:Dj has no edit on enwiktionary. -- 13:04, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

You need to create a temporary username, such as User:Dj (temp) and sign your request using that name. User:None is not a registered name, so I cannot change it to anything. —Stephen (Talk) 13:55, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
Done --Dj (temp) (talk) 17:58, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
