From User:Raccoon Fox to User:Ringtailedfox[edit]

I wish to have my account name changed from User:Raccoon Fox to User:RingtailedFox, to prevent hacking and vandalism (as was the case on wiktionary, EN Wikipedia, FR Wikipedia, and the Wikipedia Commons...), and it will bring my wikinews account in line with my English Wikipedia, English Wiktionary, and Wikipedia Commons account names. It was suggested by User:FellowWikiNews and User:Thunderhead. Raccoon Fox 23:59, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Not done, as requested. --IlyaHaykinson 00:32, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Justen to J[edit]

I'm w:User:J on Wikipedia (previously w:User:Justen, as well). Although User:J is taken here, it has never made any edits. Seems like the policy on some other wikiprojects is to allow usurps, so I hope it's the same here. Thank you, in advance!   user:justen    talk   07:35, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

User:TheFearow to User:Matt[edit]

I'd like to have my name changed to Matt, which is available. It's my first name, and i'd prefer to use it. TheFearow | userpage | contribs 01:02, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Just a note so I can use a new summary as I stuffed up the old one. TheFearow | userpage | contribs 01:36, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
Done by Brian per IRC request. Matt | userpage | contribs 08:12, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

User:Edmundkh to EdmundEzekielMahmudIsa[edit]

Please change my username as above. I've done such username change is other wikis, so I'd like to do the same here. Please leave me a message in Wikipedia. Thanks a lot! --Edmundkh 17:47, 17 August 2007 (UTC) Done Brian | (Talk) | New Zealand Portal 00:49, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

User:vishwin60 to User:O[edit]

Please change my username as I've stated in the heading, as it is needed to prevent conflicts if and when SUL happens, as I've got accounts named vishwin60 and O on various Wikimedia wikis. I know I've only made four edits here, but clean registering a new account would actually be more confusing, as evident here. Thanks, --vishwin (talk) 20:54, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Done--Cspurrier 21:09, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

User:Rick to digx[edit]

Please change my username as above (or Digx to conform with the Wiki standard). Thanks! Rick 21:06, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

done --Cspurrier 21:10, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

User:Matt to User:TheFearow[edit]

In preperation for SUL, I need to be renamed back. I did not realise at the time that I could not merge Matt back into TheFearow, so I would be stuck with two accounts. Sorry about the renaming back, hopefully its not too much strain. Matt/TheFearow | userpage | contribs 23:43, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Wikihermit to CO[edit]

  • Reason: Unifying username across wikimedias. ~ Wikihermit 02:45, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
    • ping.... ~ Wikihermit 02:29, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

Nathannoblet to Spiderpig0001[edit]

  • Reason: Get in line with Simple Wikipedia username. -- Nathannoblet 20:18, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
See HERE, and those were not my socks. HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO SAY! -- Nathannoblet 20:30, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
Then why did you create your userpage with a link to the "Nathannoblet" account on Wikipedia, which has blocked notices? And why didn't you create a new account on Wikipedia called "Spiderpig0001"? Why didn't you add a link to your "Spiderpig0001" account on Simple Wikipedia instead of the blocked account? FellowWiki Newsie 22:04, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
Done --Cspurrier 16:20, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Picaroon9288 to Picaroon[edit]

Done --Cspurrier 16:20, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

Wikisoup to Wikidsoup[edit]

I've been using Wikisoup on wikinews. I tried to make an account with the same username on wikipedia, but someone already had it (with only 1 edit from 2006!). Anyway, I created Wikidsoup on wikipedia, and would like my Wikisoup in wikinews renamed to Wikidsoup to match, please. Thanks! Wikisoup 18:54, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

Done--Cspurrier 20:43, 7 November 2007 (UTC)
Thanks Cspurrier! That was fast Wikidsoup 21:04, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

user:Gangleriלערי ריינהארט[edit]

The link w:yi:יידישע וויקיפעדיע#לערי_ריינהארט links to a project of the Wikimedia Foundation the Yiddish Wikipedia.
The section points to « לערי ריינהארט » ; the transcription is « lɛʁi ʁɑjnhɑʁt » ; That's me.
Thanks in advance! Best regards Gangleri

  • Comment Personally I am unhappy with non-latin character usernames on the English Wikinews and believe this should be discouraged. I appreciate this will be more of an issue when SUL is implemented but I believe it is too easy for someone to create a similar-looking username that will confuse people not familiar with the details of the characters. --Brian McNeil / talk 10:06, 16 December 2007 (UTC)
Done I note Brianmc comments, however have renamed the user. Sorry for the delay, have been away Brian | (Talk) | New Zealand Portal 02:36, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Humberto 2 → Humberto

As the requested name already exists, it requires an usurpation. I have sent the user an e-mail. If within 7 days they have not objected, you can be renamed. --Cspurrier - (talk) 17:50, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

E-mail sent, now we just have to wait a week. --Cspurrier - (talk) 17:51, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Did he reply or can the current Erwin be renamed? --Erwin85 - (talk) 14:34, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
It says "Cannot rename user Erwin as this username is reserved for a global account." See m:Steward_requests/SUL_requests.
Thanks, I can use my global account now. --Erwin - (talk) 20:55, 18 April 2008 (UTC)

Anonymous101 → Smallbig

  • Current name: Anonymous101 (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: Smallbig (rename user)
  • Reason: I don't want to be linked with the organization anonymous, which I am in no way affiliated with. I think a signature different to my user name would be confusing and my long signature is annoying and doesn't affect the page history anyway. Anonymous101 (talk · contribs) (Note I have no link with the organization anonymous) 17:35, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, can not be done. This username has been mirgrated to the unified login system. Please see bug 13507 for more details.--Cspurrier - (talk) 17:49, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
No worries. Thanks for responding to my request --Anonymous101 (talk · contribs) (Note I have no link with the organization anonymous) 18:34, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

RealHeron → Heron

  • Current name: RealHeron (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: Heron (rename user)
  • Reason: I own the username Heron on en:, where I'm a sysop, and on other WM projects, so I'd like to use it here too. The only problem is, the account already exists here, although it has never been used. Is it possible to usurp it, please? RealHeron - (talk) 18:03, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Mohamed0 → Mohamed[edit]

This is my account on other projects. please rename user:Mohamed to user:Mohamed something else and then rename Mohamed0 to Mohamed. Please don't just rename "user:mohamed", Please rename mohamed0 to mohamed, because my global account isn't active now because I still have to make requests like this one on another projects.

LaraLove → Jennavecia[edit]

  • Current name: LaraLove (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: Jennavecia (rename user)
  • Reason: Global name change. Already changed on en, meta, and simple. LaraLove (talk) 13:06, 5 August 2008 (UTC) Looking at Amerique's request, considering this name was automatically created, it seems as if it may be necessary to make an edit with this account. Lara aka Jennavecia (talk) 13:23, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
Not done. Pulling up the rename page gives a bright read, and dire warning, "User LaraLove has been migrated to the unified login system. Renaming it will cause the local user to be detached from the global one." --Brian McNeil / talk 14:05, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I am aware. But considering I've changed my name on the other projects, this is currently detached from the system. In order to unify, I need my name changed, hence the request. Jennavecia (talk) 15:19, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
This has been done, but - to be blunt - it was a bloody mess. You'd unified two accounts, and completely misunderstood the comment on the above request. --Brian McNeil / talk 15:28, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Beano1 → Beano[edit]

  • Current name: Beano1 (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: Beano (rename user)
  • Reason: Would like to usurp the Vandalism-only account Beano and be able to use it as my SUL. I am originally from the English Wikipedia, and have already added a page in my userspace with an edit to prove that this account is controlled by Beano and not an impersonator. This edit is here. Thank you! Beano1 (talk) 09:07, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
