User "Shaund" is requesting that username "Shaund" is renamed and merged with the username "Shaundd"

  • Crosslink from Commons to WV: [3]
  • Crosslink from WV to Commons: [4]

You'll have to re-synch your Shaundd account with your WMF global account via Special:MergeAccount. LtPowers (talk) 13:27, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Your page on Wikitravel links to en.wikipedia, which is unified with your account here, which verifies that the two accounts are operated by the same person. Done. (Of course, as a bureaucrat, you could have done this yourself!) LtPowers (talk) 15:30, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Copy request for Rename Justme to JuliasTravels[edit]

Sorry guys, I got confused with the whole renaming thing :-) I posted a request on meta [9] to transfer all old edits of my old name Justme on WT to my new name here, should that have been on this page? I did already go through this cross reference thing on Wikivoyage before the move, but now "Justme" doesn't seem to exist. At the IRC channel yesterday I was advised to create a new name and post a request on meta with a new cross reference to WT, but now I'm in doubt if I did the right thing :-) I don't particularly mind which username I end up with, it would just be nice to have my old edits back. Justme / JuliasTravels (talk) 09:10, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

As you noted, you already did cross-verification; that page was moved from WV-general to meta:Wikivoyage/Migration/New policies/Cross-identification of accounts/Verify#User:Justme. But it looks like you never edited at WV before we moved to WMF, so your account didn't get transferred -- there were no edits to transfer. Your old contributions are available under User:(WV-en) Justme. If you'd like to use User:JuliasTravels, we can do that, but if you'd like to keep User:Justme, please create that account and let us know. I can do it either way, but I want to make sure I get it right the first time. LtPowers (talk) 15:52, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation :-) In that case, please just move everything to JuliasTravels, as Justme is too similar to existing names to be able to register it on Wikimedia. Cheers, JuliasTravels (talk) 16:56, 9 December 2012 (UTC)
Done. Welcome back! LtPowers (talk) 18:40, 9 December 2012 (UTC)

Help migrating user '(WT-en) BigPeteB' to 'BigPeteB'[edit]

Hi, I'm totally confused by this process. Please help.

My WikiTravel username was BigPeteB. On Wikipedia I'm Bigpeteb. My WikiVoyage account appears to be (WT-en) BigPeteB as expected. I just created a WikiMedia account BigPeteB, but I can't figure out how to merge it with the migrated WikiTravel account.

Let me know what steps I need to take to provide verification, if any.

The "simplest" way would be to mention on your WT page that you have a WP page, and then a statement on your WP page that you are the same person as the one requesting the migration here. --Peter Talk 19:05, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
Done. Anything else, or do I just wait on an admin to click buttons? --Bigpeteb (talk) 19:28, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Wikitravel is a completely separate site, managed by the commercial company Internet Brands, and so it is up to you what you do with your account there. The content on Wikivoyage was imported from the freely-licensed data that you (and others) contributed to Wikitravel, and all that the "merge" process has done is ensure that those contributions that were imported from your Wikitravel account are now attributed to your Wikimedia account (since you have proven that the same person owns both accounts). You are welcome to continue contributing to Wikitravel (although any new contributions to Wikitravel will NOT be copied here), to contribute to Wikivoyage, or to contribute to both. See Wikivoyage:Wikivoyage and Wikitravel for some additional details. -- Ryan • (talk) • 07:05, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

proof: Both my user pages will show my request. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Pvshivajivarma http://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/User:Shivajivarma

Both of these accounts are global. Shivajivarma has edits only here (and in fact, only to make this request); Pvshivajivarma has edits here and on Commons and English Wikipedia. Are you sure you want to merge your Wikivoyage accounts into Shivajivarma? Doing so will break the link with your global account Pvshivajivarma, which is the only one of the two that has edits on other wikis. LtPowers (talk) 00:43, 5 March 2013 (UTC)
yes merge my global account "pvshivajivarma" with "shivajivarma". Thanks in advance.
I'm afraid we cannot merge global accounts. You seem to be making a rename request, but you have so few edits it probably isn't worth the trouble to do the rename on every site. I recommend you just start contributing under your preferred name. LtPowers (talk) 15:36, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

  • Compare both the user pages and you will find that they are very much similar. I also stated on my user page when I first created by Wikivoyage account that I was Superdog in Wikitravel. The dog2 (talk) 09:09, 13 April 2013 (UTC)
    • Well, yes, but anyone could have done that. If an imposter wanted to pretend to be you, he would just copy your Wikitravel page and say "Look, it's me!" What we need is confirmation from your Wikitravel account that this account is the same person. LtPowers (talk) 14:22, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

Both accounts are registered to the same email. On both accounts I have typed in my mother language Dutch with --Globe-trotter. Check the lastest entry on wiki travel: http://wikitravel.org/en/User:Velorian If you need more proof let me know.

Verified and done. We don't have any way to see what e-mail you have on each account, but the edits you made to your WT page are sufficient. Your old user talk page is now at User talk:Velorian/WT archive. LtPowers (talk) 14:06, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

Request on nl.Wikivoyage[edit]

I am a bureaucrat on nl-Wikivoyage, and there we received a request to merge an old WT account with an Wikivoyage account.

Romaine (talk) 13:25, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

I can't check there because I don't have bureaucrat status on :nl. Are you using nl:special:UserMerge? What happens when you go to that page? --Peter Talk 16:36, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Ah yes, I'm sorry if this might be complicated, as both 'Half past' and 'SUFCboy' are Wikimedia global accounts (the latter being my old one). My proof that both usernames are mine are in the user contributions for SUFCboy. -- Half past (formerly SUFCboy) 20:10, 1 December 2013 (UTC)

Strictly speaking, this process is for accounts that formerly existed on Wikitravel and were migrated here with a "(WT-en)" prefix, to allow users to usurp their old edits and gain proper credit for them. I don't know if any of us are familiar with the usual method of merging accounts, and whether it differs in any way from the migration merging process. LtPowers (talk) 20:56, 1 December 2013 (UTC)
