I see that we've successfully performed 22 global renames after the one that became stuck. Most of those had enwiki accounts that got correctly renamed. I don't think that saying that all renames are becoming stuck at enwiki correctly describes the issue at hand. For now, only one has become stuck as far as I can see. I am renaming the task.

I see that we've successfully performed 22 global renames after the one that became stuck. Most of those had enwiki accounts that got correctly renamed.

For confirmation, I preformed more than 20 rename requests before minutes, and all of is renamed correctly without any stuck, so we can complete the renaming process for new requests. Also, I removed the warning in Global Rename Queue.

@Tgr Hi. Could you have a look here? Thanks!

Decreasing the priority since a unique account is impacted, and other renames looks not blocked.

It's been six days since the rename now, and nothing has happened. Could someone please look at it asap? Tnx. @Tgr @Legoktm @Keegan @Jalexander

I'd like to echo what @Trijnstel said. Could somebody please have a look at that rename and unblock it accordingly? Thank you.

Does anyone gonna fix this? It's almost 10 days now.

@Legoktm Could you have a look at this one? Thanks.

Sorry, looking into this now.

Rename finished, I think it was just a database timeout. Sorry about not seeing this ticket earlier :(
