Archives for Wikiquote:Changing username from 2012.

Odea → O'DeaEdit

LazySofa → SycamoreEdit

  • Current name: LazySofa (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: Sycamore (SUL reports: old & new) (rename user)
  • Reason: Requesting rename to this username at enwiki and Commons; global user has insignificant edits. LazySofa 06:16, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Yes check.svgY Done Cheers! BD2412 T 15:37, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

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)

Krenair → Krenair (broken)Edit

  • Current name: Krenair (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: Krenair (broken) (SUL reports: old & new) (rename user)
  • Reason: Bugzilla:29234#c4 -- Krenair (rename request) (talk) 21:36, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
    • Something is indeed broken because accounts created automatically by SUL should by definition be unified accounts. If you are unable to log in to verify that you are the account holder then it may be more appropriate to handle this as a usurpation request. ~ Ningauble (talk) 16:11, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
      • I can log in, just not on enwikiquote or cswiki. Verified. --Krenair (rename request) (talk) 13:32, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
    • Just to be clear (because it looks from the request like you are seeking to have an existing User:Krenair renamed to User:Krenair (broken)), what you are actually requesting here is to have the registered account User:Krenair (rename request) renamed to User:Krenair, correct? BD2412 T 02:35, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
      • No that's not what I want to do at all. User:Krenair (rename request)'s ONLY purpose is to edit this page without revealing my IP. The change I want made is to rename User:Krenair to User:Krenair (broken). --Krenair (rename request) (talk) 13:22, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
        • Yes check.svgY Done. It seems like a rather odd request, since User:Krenair had zero edits to be moved under the new name, but if that's what you want, I'm fine with it. Cheers! BD2412 T 18:02, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
          • That fixed the problem here. Thanks! --Krenair (talk) 23:37, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Voyagerfan5761 → DgwEdit

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)

SteMicha → SteakEdit

  • Current name: SteMicha (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: Steak (SUL reports: old & new) (rename user)
  • Reason: Global rename. User account Steak was created by me and can be renamed to Steak-SUL or something like that. SteMicha (talk) 17:44, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
Confirmed. Steak (talk) 17:44, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Yes check.svgY Done The old User:Steak has been moved to User:Steak-usurped. Cheers! BD2412 T 18:31, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

SpeakFree → TargaryenEdit

  • Current name: SpeakFree (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: Targaryen (SUL reports: old & new) (rename user)
  • Reason: Changed my username at enwp to Targaryen. SpeakFree (talk) 23:55, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
    • There is an existing User:Targaryen registered on this project. Unless you are the one who registered that account, you will need to request usurpation. BD2412 T 05:15, 20 May 2012 (UTC)
X mark.svgN Not Done Stale request, no edits by the editor since this request. EVula // talk // // 15:36, 1 September 2012 (UTC)

Jojcrew → Jitch94Edit

  • Current name: Jojcrew (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: Jitch94 (SUL reports: old & new) (rename user)
  • Reason: I am always forgetting my username as it is not my generally used one, whereas Jitch94 is. 212.113.200.151 16:33, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
    • There is no User:jojcrew registered on this project, so there is nothing to rename. Neither is there a User:Jitch94. If you wish to use that name, you can just go ahead and register it. Cheers! BD2412 T 17:26, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
X mark.svgN Not Done Nothing to do. EVula // talk // // 15:36, 1 September 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)
Yes check.svgY Done [better late than never, eh?] EVula // talk // // 15:38, 1 September 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)

Ohyeahmormons → Buildings and FoodEdit

  • Current name: Ohyeahmormons (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: Buildings and Food (SUL reports: old & new) (rename user)
  • Reason: This was a username I created a long time ago and it may be considered troll-like and offensive, so I would like it to be changed to something that wouldn't be. Ohyeahmormons (talk) 14:23, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
    • Note: The proposed name is not used on any WMF site.--Collingwood (talk) 15:11, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
      • Yes check.svgY Done. Cheers! BD2412 T 17:54, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

Gregory Shantz → QATEdit

  • Current name: Gregory Shantz (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: QAT (SUL reports: old & new) (rename user)
  • Reason: Privacy. Gregory Shantz (talk) 00:16, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
    • Note: apart from this request, the user made five edits to WQ in 2006-7. There is no user of that name elsewhere on WMF sites. The name QAT is not in use anywhere on WMF sites.--Collingwood (talk) 13:02, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
      • Yes check.svgY Done. Cheers! BD2412 T 17:54, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
