Wikimedia:Changing username

From Outreach Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is the page to request a Bureaucrat change your username. Until someone writes local guidance, please see the corresponding page on the English Wikipedia for general rules that apply. As there is no hard process here, the discretion of the responding Bureaucrat is large, and renames may be declined for various reasons.

Request renaming below here[edit]

Kumioko → Kumioko (usurped)[edit]

  • Old username = Kumioko
  • New username = Kumioko (usurped)
  • Datestamp: 11:54, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
  • Confirmation link: here and w:User talk:Snowolf#Question about account on Meta
  • Reason: I abandoned my account some time ago and scrambled the login data. I have since regained access to my enwiki account and to the global SUL. The metawiki user 'Kumioko' is indeed me and I would like to have this old and scrambled username renamed to so I can use SUL-autocreation to recreate the Kumioko account here.

YesY Done, I also renamed your Meta-Wiki account for you. The Helpful One 19:51, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
Thanks again. Kumioko (talk) 20:24, 19 December 2012 (UTC)
No problem at all. The Helpful One 20:28, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Hosiryuhosi → Rxy[edit]

  • Current username: Hosiryuhosi
  • Target username: Rxy
  • Reason: I want to change my current username to short username at WMF wikis globally. Note: Global account "Rxy" is my account (confirm). Thanks. --Hosiryuhosi (talk) 04:52, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
