Zara_bg --> Zara

Hello. I am bg:User:Zara (verify), an active editor on BG WP and several other projects. For the sake of successful SUL, I would like to have the local User:Zara usurped in my favour. Thank you in advance --Zara bg 19:01, 31 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]

May I ask why you didn't create the user "Zara"? SPQRobin 19:08, 31 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Because it has been created on 07:54, 1 September 2006, although the local user has never had any contributions. Please, I need this for the sake of successful SUL --Zara bg 19:20, 31 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]

No, Mardetanha, you are only a test-sysop. But it's right, please login for your request. Also, your request seems to be wrong here. You must request a rename of a Commons account on Commons. --MF-W {a, b} 15:22, 4 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Sorry I didnt log in. Forgot I wasnt logged in on this computer. So I should get my rename done at Commons? Jordan Timothy James Busson 06:39, 5 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, we can only change user names on this wiki, of course. Go to commons:Commons:Changing username for Commons. SPQRobin 15:13, 5 June 2008 (UTC)[reply]

Martinus Poeta Juvenis --> Μαρτινός ὁ Νέος

Ich möchte meinen Benutzernamen, Martinus Poeta Juvenis, auf Griechisch, in Μαρτινός ὁ Νέος umbenennen, weil ich hier höchstens in der grcwiki arbeiten werde. --Martinus Poeta Juvenis 05:38, 28 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Du hast eine globale Benutzername. Eine Umbenennung wird den lokalen Benutzer aus dem globalen Benutzer entfernen. Ist das OK? SPQRobin 16:14, 28 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Wenn es darum geht, dass ich den originalen Benutzernamen überall verlieren werde, dann möchte ich den Benutzernamen eher nicht ändern. --Martinus Poeta Juvenis 17:02, 28 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Es wird sich nicht ändern Sie Ihren Benutzernamen global, müssen Sie verschiedene Wikis für diese oder meta gehen. Ebe123 (Talkabout it|contribs) 20:01, 3 September 2011 (UTC) (Google translation)[reply]
Hmm, this Google Translation is awful. I didn't reply (yet) because my German and my knowledge about the user system is insufficient.
@Martinus: Deinen originalen Namen werdest du nicht überall verlieren, aber allein hier.
@MF-Warburg: als du es erklären könntest, das wäre super :-) SPQRobin 21:38, 3 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Dann nehme ich den Vorschlag an. --Martinus Poeta Juvenis 15:36, 4 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Um das hier klarzustellen: Durch m:Help:Unified login/de gibt es Wikimedia-weite vereinigte Benutzerkonten (SUL-Konten), abhängig vom Benutzernamen (siehe [3]). Mit dem SUL-Konto muss man sich nur in einem Wiki einloggen, und ist dann in allen Wikis angemeldet. Du kannst hier jetzt in Μαρτινός ὁ Νέος umbenannt werden, dadurch ändert sich an deinen übrigen Benutzernamen in anderen Wikis nichts, nur dein Account hier wäre nicht mehr teil des SUL-Kontos "Martinus Poeta Juvenis". --MF-W {a, b} 22:17, 5 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]

This request is your only edit, no rename needed. User:Sanyi4 is already attached to the global account. --MF-W {a, b} 17:52, 3 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]
That's right, but the renaming would also be in order to delete User:Kontos. Kontos (talk) 18:00, 3 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]
Well, that doesn't seem necessary to me. If the account is there with 0 edits, it does no harm. --MF-W {a, b} 18:34, 3 February 2013 (UTC)[reply]

That's not true; the log entry from 2012 says Родолюбец now because you renamed the account. If Родолюбец had already existed, you would have had to rename that away first. But it doesn't really matter much. --MF-W {a, b} 09:59, 26 July 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Not a username change per se

I am an admin on, for some reason my unified account flags incubator as not being linked to the rest.

This problem that an automatically created account suddenly goes unattached occurs occasionally, I was also already affected by it. I renamed the Mfield account to "Mfield (SUL request)" so you should be able to log in now (again). --MF-W {a, b} 02:54, 10 August 2013 (UTC)[reply]
