Wikiquote:Changing username/Usurpation/2009

Droll --> DrollEdit

  • Your current user name: Droll (talk · contributions)
  • Target name: Droll (talk · contributions)
  • Target was contacted: On Talk & in person. I wish to regain control of my own account for which I have forgotten the password. It appears that no other user has usurped this user name and that all the edits are my own.
I don't see any way of actually regaining control of the account which previously had only 4 edits. If you become the owner of the SUL, I could rename the old account something else, such as "Droll1" which would allow you to begin editing as "Droll" with a new account automatically created on login. ~ Kalki 07:21, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Kelly1 --> KellyEdit

Renamings have been done here. Though not specifically stated I assumed you were the owner of the SUL requesting usurpation of a previously unused and unattached account. If this is the case, the Kelly account here can now easily be merged with your SUL. If it is not the case, the SUL account should still have priority and a further renaming might be in order. ~ Kalki 07:00, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

brassratgirl --> phoebeEdit

I have suggested the current "Phoebe" relinquish the currently little used account, in favor of the SUL holder, and will await some form of response. ~ Kalki 06:42, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

User:MSBOT --> as u wishEdit

  • Your current user name: Don't have local username. SUL
  • Target name: MSBOT (talk · contributions)
  • Target was contacted: Both on Talk and by Mail

My bot have global bot flag. The target account don't have any contribution (I have no access to deleted edits!) Thanks -- Meisam 02:37, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Yes! By starting activation on wikiquote projects I'll request for bot flag. -- Meisam 17:25, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
There are some problems with this account.
1: I can't find the account creation log [2]!
2: The registered account mail is same as my main mail address (global User:Meisam/MSBOT) I got my own mail sent to MSBOT! [A checkuser can confirm this]
I think this account should be mine, created automatically but don't know how it's unattached now!!! -- Meisam 19:49, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
I tried to reset the password. Everything is OK now. No need to usurp anymore. Thanks -- Meisam 20:01, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
All's well that ends well. (I never found the account creation log reliable, and never investigated whether there is method to the madness.) ~ Ningauble 20:11, 22 April 2009 (UTC)

Tieum p --> NakorEdit

Please see this diff at frwiki to confirm that I own the target SUL account. Thanks in advance. Tieum p 15:15, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello, can we please proceed with this? The three weeks period is expired and the user did not object on his talk page. Thanks in advance. Tieum p 01:05, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
These accounts have now been renamed, the previous Nakor being renamed "Nakor 0"; you should now be able to merge Nakor into your SUL by logging in, or with the options on your preferences pages. ~ Kalki 05:19, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Zacke --> ???Edit

There's still no response. Would you please rename the user now? -- (de-Zacke) 85.179.21.254 13:06, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
The previous Zacke has now been renamed "Zacke 0" ~ Kalki 05:20, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! -- Zacke 14:55, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Poppy --> any freeEdit

  • Your current user name: I do not have yet on this project; SUL: Poppy Home wiki: Poppy
  • Target name: Poppy (talk · contributions)
  • Target was contacted: On Talk Page
The previous Poppy has been renamed "Poppy 0" and the name should be available to your SUL now. ~ Kalki 05:26, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

NancyTemp --> NancyEdit

  • Your current user name: NancyTemp (talk · contributions)
  • Target name: Nancy (talk · contributions)
  • Target was contacted: On Talk only (mail not enabled)
    • This is an SUL request, see wikipedia:en:User:Nancy/SUL, cheers NancyTemp 13:36, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
      • Request recognized in process. I would like you NancyTemp to remind that Wikiquote gives no special favor on SUL request. Either it is an SUL request or not, here on Wikiquote equally usurpation request is up to the will of the owner of target account. Thank you for your understand and patience until the result is determined. --Aphaia 07:16, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
The previous Nancy has now been renamed "Nancy 0" and Nancy should be available for your SUL. ~ Kalki 05:44, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Kennedy1 --> KennedyEdit

The previous Kennedy has been renamed "Kennedy 0" and Kennedy1 has been renamed Kennedy, and can be merged into your SUL account. ~ Kalki 05:55, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Foobar --> DougEdit

--Foobar 00:25, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

    • For confirmation of my global ID see this link. --Foobar 01:02, 20 November 2008 (UTC)
      • I think User:InvisibleSun approved this but didn't complete it as my page now redirects to User:Doug but my username remains the same.--Foobar 01:04, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
      • And the old usertalk is still there.--Foobar 14:19, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
The name Doug here is now attached to the SUL account Doug, and not much more seems necessary at this point. ~ Kalki 06:02, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Joystick --> any freeEdit

The previous Joystick has now been renamed "Joystick 0" and Joystick should now be available for your SUL. ~ Kalki 05:31, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

User:DancerEdit

I am user:Dancer on tr.WP, Diff-link. Can I usurp Dancer here pls. --80.137.127.172 16:04, 17 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes check.svgY Done User:Dancer renamed to User:Dancer (usurp). EVula // talk // // 06:03, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks --Dancer 10:05, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Usurpring George --> GeorgeEdit

User has five edits, two years ago, all to their user or talk page. I'm George from the English Wikipedia, and the holder of the SUL account, and have over 5000 edits. A diff showing my identity can be found here. I just did notify the user, so obviously it will probably take some time to give them a chance to respond, but as the user only made 5 edits ever - all on the first day the account was created two years ago - I doubt we're going to hear back from them. Usurpring George 07:57, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes check.svgY Done The old George only ever made edits to his userspace, so we don't need to worry about his contributions. He's been renamed George (usurped) (talk · contributions). EVula // talk // // 19:17, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
Great, thanks much! George 23:58, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

FernandoAires --> FernandoAiresEdit

I'm the actual owner of this account, but I forgot the password. It has only one edit (back in 2004), and I don't particularly want to keep credit for it. It being renamed will be fine for me.

Regards, and thanks in advance. --200.155.107.39 14:27, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

Can you verify that you're FernandoAires on enwiki? EVula // talk // // 15:55, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I can, although I don't know if there's a standard way of doing that. I edited my talk page there saying so, you can check it was changed by FernandoAires account. Is it enough? If not, please tell me what's the proper way of verifying it.
Thanks for helping. --200.230.42.245 19:00, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
Yes check.svgY Done Renamed to FernandoAires (usurp) (talk · contributions). EVula // talk // // 20:08, 8 September 2009 (UTC)
