Hello ... "Friends"...

Usurp user name[edit]

Hey 1997kB, I have a question for you. The account GucciGamer is registered, but never did anything, made no edits. I know someone who wants to be "Gucci Gamer" (with a space), but they weren't allowed to take that name because it was too close to the other name. Is there anything you can do here? Thanks! Drmies (talk) 02:03, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Hello Drmies, I generally accept such requests where conflicting name is unused and inactive and this don't even require usurpation. So if they still want that name, send them to WP:CHUS . ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:27, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
Ha, the person doesn't have an account yet. Do I need to find an account creator? (Or maybe I am an account creator myself? Haha--this is all too difficult!). Drmies (talk) 02:30, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
Drmies, You can create the account. Just head over to Special:CreateAccount and check "Ignore spoofing checks" when you create. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:35, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
Yeah but the account name was disallowed. The new editor is filling out a "Request account" form. Where does that go to--I mean, who reads those? Just in case they have any questions? Thanks, Drmies (talk) 02:44, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
Drmies, Those request go to WP:ACC and I can read them, but I could not find any request with that name. Maybe they haven't confirmed their email yet. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:50, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
Good morning 1997; they just opened their email and found the message, and then submitted the request. Thanks for your help! Drmies (talk) 14:41, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

A goat for you![edit]

Looking for assist on hiwiki[edit]

Hi there 1997kB, I'm working on an OTRS ticket regarding vandalism / abusive language (with no specifics given as to what the issues were) in this article on hiwiki. I'm hi-0, but I asked JH to take a pass at it. He did but the edits are stuck in review. I see you've got reviewer rights there - would you be able to take a look (or point me to someone who could, if not)? Thanks much! ‑‑ElHef (Meep?) 00:37, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

ElHef, done. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 02:46, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Usurping username[edit]

Hello 1997kb, I just revived my old account. And now, I want to usurp the username of my new account (Kamilalibhat). I will retire the new one and will keep this as my primary account. I confirm that I have the total control over these two accounts and both are mine. If you will do that for me, I will never forget that. –KamilAlee 09:06, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

Hi 1997kb, I wanna change my username to "MasonΣ". I saw it is not registered. The reason behind this change is that my username is my real name and it is used by me on all social platforms. I don't want to be known by my real name on Wikipedia. Could you please rename me? –KamilAlee 09:51, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

@KamilAleeBhat: Please request at WP:CHUS. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:22, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
@1997kB: Added a new request, could you please review it? –KamilAlee 13:44, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

February 2021[edit]

Hello 1997kB. I requested to change my username. I'm sorry that I didn't know I can change my name just twice. If I knew about it, I'd think more for changing. I'm sure this is my request for the last time and I want to change it permanently. If there's no problem, please change my name. Thank you. Jag-Eun Byeol (talk) 15:20, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

ImoutoCompAlex rename request[edit]

Going to try usurping the name I requested as it is inactive and has made no edits. I want the name Tanjiro_kamado ( but again it is inactive and has made no edits. I already opened a usurp request but is this necessary? What steps should I take next?

Also I opened a request via the Global renamer to to take the name ****** but I no longer want that name. What should I do? — Preceding unsigned comment added by ImoutoCompAlex (talkcontribs) 11:06, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

ImoutoCompAlex, Already rejected your request to ******* name. Since usurpation requests are granted to well established users, you are not eligible for that. I'd suggest you pick another name. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 12:19, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
Got it. Change my username request to OscarDragonia — Preceding unsigned comment added by ImoutoCompAlex (talkcontribs) 12:41, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
I updated my request — Preceding unsigned comment added by ImoutoCompAlex (talkcontribs) 12:43, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
I updated my request. Please change my name to OscarDragonia — Preceding unsigned comment added by ImoutoCompAlex (talkcontribs) 15:13, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
1997kB, I would like the name OscarDragonia. Please change it when you have some free time. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ImoutoCompAlex (talkcontribs) 01:22, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

Rename request[edit]

Hello 1997kB, would you please process my request at Changing username/Simple. Thank you! User:Moul chusy — Preceding undated comment added 19:38, 25 March 2021 (UTC) (Closed bold markup. Tol | Talk | Contribs (formerly Twassman) 20:38, 25 March 2021 (UTC))


Hi, could I ask you a question? Per standard procedure, accounts with valid edits are not usurped, what is 「valid edits」? Does it mean more than 50 edits?--May♡♡→♡℃Talk 10:56, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

蟲蟲飛, Valid edits means edits that are in mainspace. So userspace and discussion related edits can be ignored but there is no such limit as 50. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:28, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Does it mean eventhough the user edit only one time in mainspace, then the username cannot be usurped?May♡♡→♡℃Talk 13:41, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
    蟲蟲飛, depends, I personally ignore single-digit edits but if the account is recent (say less than 1 years old) then I consider every single edit. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:46, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
  • I see. thank you very much.--May♡♡→♡℃Talk 13:49, 10 April 2021 (UTC)
    蟲蟲飛 Also forgot to mention that not only edits but log entries should be checked too, so in case there are valid log entries then it can't be usurped. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:57, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Is it required to request at SRCU for "usurpation"? Or it can be locally handled? According to m:Global rename policy#Usurpation, Can renamers deal with usurpation? --Xiplus (talk) 14:38, 10 April 2021 (UTC)

Xiplus Requests where target account have significant attachments on other projects (compared to where request is filed) should be handled on SRUC. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:57, 10 April 2021 (UTC)


Since you patrolled Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Sandesh9822 often, can you check it again this time? Apparently it has been nearly 3 weeks and it got no attention. Srijanx22 (talk) 01:51, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

Change OK[edit]

It is a pen name, not an actual name. Is it better practice to make it less ambiguous? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hhmi-neuro (talkcontribs) 04:05, 27 July 2021 (UTC)

@Hhmi-neuro: It's always preferred to keep usernames less connected to real life identify as everything you posting here is in public domain and also it's very hard to remove all the trace once it's posted on site. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:12, 27 July 2021 (UTC)
@1997kB: Makes sense. OK. Please ignore this request. i will submit a new one, if that is ok with you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hhmi-neuro (talkcontribs) 04:17, 27 July 2021 (UTC)
@Hhmi-neuro: Yeah no problem, alternatively you can just edit the current request and replace requested name with your new choice. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:20, 27 July 2021 (UTC)
@1997kB: oops. Had already created a new request when i saw this. hope i am not making things more combersome to you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cephalopod31 (talkcontribs) 04:23, 27 July 2021 (UTC)
@Cephalopod31: No problem, merged and processed the request. Also you can use ~~~~ (four tilde) to sign your comments on discussion pages like this. Happy editing and welcome to Wikipedia! ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:29, 27 July 2021 (UTC)

Change made to Assam University's Page[edit]

Hi! The reason I made this change was that Assam University is located in Silchar, Southern Assam. This region has predominantly Bengali people and not Assamese. This is to the extent that in Silchar, my hometown, nobody speaks Assamese. Further, the spelling in the indigenous language was in Bangla as well, and not Assamese. The script for both languages is almost identical. I apologize for breaking any rules, it certainly wasn't my intention to do so. I do not know how to verify this demographic fact. I would welcome your suggestions!

Repeated rename requests[edit]

Hi. We have a restriction at m:GRP#Policy of not allowing "repeated" rename requests. How soon can Firebanana request another rename after their rename of 2021/12/20? Please see WP:CHUS#Firebanana → Craxine.   — Jeff G. ツ 02:15, 28 December 2021 (UTC)

@Jeff G.: That was a valid reject. 'Frivolous' repeat request should be rejected giving waiting period of atleast 6 months. But when request is related to privacy (real names removals) or some other valid case (like confusingly made two request and duplicate one got accepted), we should accept them. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 01:57, 30 December 2021 (UTC)
