@@Marostegui can you write your time zone in your profile?

He's a server admin, so more than likely EST which puts us at 21:37. Besides in your time zone no server admin is awake to maintain any site. :)

I am around now

@Marostegui - still around? If @Cyberpower678 is still not around I can babysit this if that's okay?

I'm also looking this process (at the link given by @Cyberpower678) and it seems to be failed in Meta: the rename progress indicated that "failed" (and not "Done") in Meta-Wiki. How it can be fixed?
