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.

{{Not done}} user is blocked for spamming. ~ Nahid Talk 10:10, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
@NahidSultan: Huh? The requesting user's block log is empty. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 15:49, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
Okay, It must be my fault K6ka. I didn't find one either. Thanks for pointing it out. Btw, @Rapperflowdc: Did you really mean to use Parentheses in your username? ~ Nahid Talk 17:24, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Viveka~enwiki → Viveka[edit]

Symbol comment vote.svg Robot clerk note: I have detected the following problems:
  • 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.
  • There is already a global account registered for Viveka (primary wiki: ruwiki). --Legobot (talk) 14:10, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
@Viveka~enwiki: Actually, the Russian account has 127 edits, while yours only has about 90 or so edits. It was considered to have the "stronger claim" and thus you got renamed instead. Sorry. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 14:24, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
  • @Viveka~enwiki: you have a strong case here to seek the restoration of your name; you've been using it since 2003 and the ru user appears to have had all of their edits deleted and is now inactive. Please make this request at m:SRUC and feel free to copy my comments there. –xenotalk 14:29, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

Comment - Judging from your userpage, you may have mistaken what Wikipedia is for. It is not a place to write about yourself (like Facebook or LinkedIn) but is an online encyclopedia where people write about other topics. We have strict rules about conflicts of interest which preclude writing about yourself. WJBscribe (talk) 11:34, 7 July 2015 (UTC)
