TheMightyHercules → CmdrDan[edit]

Can you provide some verification that you are the owner of the other CmdrDan accounts on Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Commons and Meta? Per our rename policies an account cannot be renamed when it will create a global name conflict unless the requester can provide proof that they own all accounts. Also, please be sure to login so that we can be sure that it is "TheMightyHercules" that is actually making the rename request. -- Ryan • (talk) • 16:15, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I wasn't logged in when I made the above request. I'm now logged in.
Proof, you want proof? Here's some evidence:

Is that enuf? I hops so, but if not just let me know.
Also, can you please tell me where these requests are logged; If/when this is completed is there a page that contains logs similar to this one on Commons:

D_abhi → Abhinav[edit]

  • Current name: D_abhi
  • Requested name: Abhinav (global accounts | SUL collision detector)
  • Requester's signature: D abhi (talk) 07:29, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
  • For bureaucrat use: Rename user
  • Reason for rename: To complete SUL Process.
  • Confirmation link : diff
  • The MediaWiki software will not let me complete this request - the rename page shows "Username Abhinav is reserved for a global account" and any attempt to rename returns the error "The user "Abhinav" already exists". -- Ryan • (talk) • 16:16, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Can you overright it locally? D abhi (talk) 09:00, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
    Sorry, there isn't anything more that I can do. -- Ryan • (talk) • 17:43, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
    @Wrh2: Try renaming Abhinav to Abhinav (usurped), then rename D abhi to Abhinav. PiRSquared17 (talk) 01:09, 9 June 2014 (UTC)
    Per Wikivoyage:Changing username we have no guidelines in place for usurping usernames on English Wikivoyage. At this point there is nothing more that I can do, although a steward is welcome to jump in and resolve this issue in whatever way they deem appropriate. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:21, 9 June 2014 (UTC)

Waylandchin → waylandchin[edit]

As far as I know, MediaWiki by default is case-sensitive on everything *except* the first letter, which it capitalises. I doubt it will recognise these as different. K7L (talk) 12:41, 29 September 2014 (UTC)
