Bystander → Bystander53Edit

  • Current name: Bystander (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: Bystander53 (SUL reports: old & new) (rename user)
  • Reason: I had forgotten that I had an existing id on enwiki and there already exists an active bystander in the SUL. bystander 23:26, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
    • It appears that you have already registered the requested username. As you have very few edits under the username for which you are requesting a change, it would be easier for you to just begin using your preferred username. BD2412 T 00:13, 9 February 2012 (UTC)
      • Yes, I had previously registered Bystander53 on enwiki, not here. Personally, I prefer bystander. So, if you don't wish to make the change, I guess I'll continue to use it here and to heck with SUL. bystander 06:09, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
        • The problem is, Bystander53 is now registered here, making this a usurpation issue rather than merely a name change issue. BD2412 T 17:02, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
          • Yes check.svgY Done Cheers! BD2412 T 17:40, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Immer in Bewegung → IIBewegungEdit

  • Current name: Immer in Bewegung (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: IIBewegung (SUL reports: old & new) (rename user)
  • Reason: 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. --Immer in Bewegung 16:53, 10 February 2012 (UTC)
    • It appears that you or somebody else has already registered the requested username. To change to a username that has already been created, you will need to demonstrate that you have registered both names, or submit a usurpation request. As you have very few edits under the username for which you are requesting a change, if you are the person who has registered this username, it would be easier for you to just begin using your preferred username. Cheers! BD2412 T 18:18, 11 February 2012 (UTC)
      • I guess this edit demonstrates that I have (unknowingly) registered the new name by clicking over from enwikipedia while logged in there as the correctly renamed IIBewegung. But then I'm not terribly worried about not having previous contributions of the old user moved to the new user's record. So I guess I'll put in a usurpation request later if/when I feel the need to. Case closed I guess. Sorry to bother you. --IIBewegung 05:34, 12 February 2012 (UTC)
        • Since you've demonstrated ownership of the registered name, I can make the change any time. Cheers! BD2412 T 16:28, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
          • Then I might as well get this over with. Please do. Thanks for bearing with me. --Immer in Bewegung 05:38, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
            • Yes check.svgY Done. Cheers! BD2412 T 16:42, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

Hermoine.chartered.accountant → Hermoine.JacksonEdit

Fixed malformed request. Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 10:00, 30 April 2012 (UTC)
Hi, I think you want a rename on the English Wikipedia (where the username Hermoine.chartered.accountant is blocked). If I am correct, then please add {{unblock-un|your new username here}} to this page, replacing your new username here with Hermoine.Jackson. Once unblocked, please see this page about details for changing your username.
You do not have an account here. Though I'm not a bureaucrat, I would suggest you wait until you are renamed in the English Wikipedia and simply open Wikiquote while logged in to get an account here. If you do not wish to rename yourself in the English Wikipedia, you can simply create an account Hermoine.Jackson here. Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 10:09, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Bettia → Bald ZebraEdit

  • Current name: Bettia (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: Bald Zebra (SUL reports: old & new) (rename user)
  • Reason: I have recently had my main Wikipedia account renamed [1], and I wish to rename this account accordingly. Bettia (rawr!) 19:38, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Note to bureaucrats: The proposed account name "Bald Zebra" exists nowhere on WMF other than on WP. "Bettia" has seven edits here including the one creating the above notice. Recommend rename.--Collingwood (talk) 11:40, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

حمد الجداويEdit

This user has requested (on the talk pages of BD2412 and Ningauble) to be renamed to Avocato, with GedawyBot → AvocatoBot.

Since he has no edits here other than these two to the talk pages, and GedawyBot has no edits, no renaming is necessary. The names Avocato and AvocatoBot are in use on several wikis but not here and there is no SUL [2][3]. Unless this is the same user, there is a risk of problems with the other user or users elsewhere.--Collingwood (talk) 12:41, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

(not my page, it was UDScott‎'s) ~ Ningauble (talk) 12:52, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
Yes check.svgY Done The user provided a confirmation link to his Metawiki account on my talk page, so I went ahead and made the change. No one else has lain claim to the username on this project. BD2412 T 21:11, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

Bren Barnes → BrenoEdit

Bren Barnes has four edits here. There is no Breno account here. SUL tool shows that a SUL for Breno exists but there are many unattached accounts. I recommend that Bren Barnes confirms on his Breno page on Wikipedia that he is the owner of the SUL account.--Collingwood (talk) 12:04, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Done As Breno had already confirmed this request.[4] EVula // talk // // 19:30, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
