Requests to "usurp" an existing username should be made at Wikipedia:Changing username/Usurpations; straightforward requests may use Special:GlobalRenameRequest.

This page is a forum in which users can request, and global renamers (including stewards) can consider and carry out, requests to rename accounts to usernames that are not yet taken on any Wikimedia project.

While global renamers carry out renames, other users (including bots) help by "clerking" the mechanics of this process. If you wish to help as a clerk, please read the linked page carefully.

Instructions

Once you have decided on the name you would like:

  1. Read this page first. You must be aware of, and understand, all of that information before requesting a username change
  2. Check to make sure this username is not already in use. Do this by searching for the name here. If the name appears in the results, even if on another Wikimedia project, it is taken.
  3. Do not create an account under the new name or move/redirect your userpages. We'll do that for you.
  4. Log in with your present username in order to place your request. Renames will not be approved if the requester is not logged in.
  5. Click here to place your request.
    • Add your desired username after NEW=
    • Add a reason for the change after REASON=
    • Do not add anything in the "subject/headline" box
  6. Make sure that you have spelled both names correctly, including capitalization and spacing. Save the page.
  7. Users with many edits should log out of their accounts to ensure the rename is carried out properly.
  8. Check back on this page periodically to answer any questions that may arise regarding your request. Please be patient. It may take a few days for your request to be completed. If you do not answer any questions, your request may be declined due to no response.

Studiodmi → Jay dmi studio[edit]

 Renamer note: The requested username may not be specific enough to indicate that it represents an individual and not a company. May I suggest "Jay at dmi studio"? Please advise. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 19:42, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Fjpoblam[edit]

The three I have are: apfwebs, fjpoblam, and jjwaters.

The ones to be eliminated are: apfwebs and fjpoblam

The one I wish to keep is: jjwaters

I can provide a verification response via email from any and all addresses associated with these accounts.

If, indeed, a real human being will read and respond to this page, I would truly appreciate an email response at the jjwaters address — but a response to the address associated with any of these accounts would work just fine. Any help will go a long way toward simplifying my life and Wikipedia's records.

N.b., none of these accounts has made a significant contribution to the Wikipedia knowledge base, and only one has been associated in the past with a monetary contribution. Future donations will be made through the jjwaters account.

The jjwaters account will also be used for iOS app purposes.

Sufficient clarity?

Symbol comment vote.svg Robot clerk note: The requested username is already registered; see Special:Listusers. However, as this requested account has made no edits, it meets the criteria for being usurped; if you wish to usurp it, please read and follow the process at Wikipedia:Changing username/Usurpations. If you do not wish to usurp the username, please choose another name to be renamed to. —cyberbot ITalk to my owner:Online 22:10, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
apfwebs, fjpoblam, and jjwaters, just stop using the accounts you do not want to use, or redirect their userpages to the userpage of the account you want to keep. Accounts cannot be deleted unfortunately. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 22:43, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

 Renamer note: The requested username is already registered, see m:Special:CentralAuth/Albert Emil.
