  Done --Brian McNeil / talk 12:42, 1 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Simeon → Simeon2

  • Current name: Simeon (talk · contribs · logs · block log)
  • Requested name: Simeon2 (rename user)
  • Reason: I'd like Simeon to be renamed to something else for a future global account. I'm Simeon from and here's a confirmation of my request. I'm well aware that this user has made edits but considering the message on his user page, it's worth a try (unless it's not allowed by GFDL rules or so). Thanks, Simeon 20:18, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
User was, at one time, quite active. Has not specified an email address to confirm they're gone or not so I'm not sure on this usurpation. --Brian McNeil / talk 12:29, 4 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Symode09 → BrownCat

This is not possible as you have migrated to SUL. --Brian McNeil / talk 09:39, 21 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
You'll need to first go to meta:Steward requests/SUL requests and request your global account be deleted so you can rename your accounts and then merge them again. Adambro (talk) 12:35, 21 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Hippo → Hippo

The target username on en.WN has no edits. The user has confirmed the request on If there are no objections, I'll rename the old en.WN Hippo to make way for this user to claim this name. --Chiacomo (talk) 04:11, 4 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Spiderpig0001 → Da Punk '95

Target already exists. --Brian McNeil / talk 13:19, 30 September 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Tomf688 → Tom

Cannot be done as account Tom already unified. The unification must be undone before the rename is possible. --Brian McNeil / talk 18:02, 6 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Glacier Wolf → LeiaY

User LeiaY already exists, is this yours? --Brian McNeil / talk 15:42, 5 August 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Throwaway account → Amerique

You have a global/SUL account, I have renamed the old account but the system will not permit me to rename the "Throwaway account" into place. Please try a login to your SUL account and a local edit. If problems persist seek help on meta. --Brian McNeil / talk 20:57, 2 August 2008 (UTC)[reply]
