Description

I have been trying to get all of my edits be attributed for a while. Unfortunately I have situations like the following when one account has some and other the rest of my contribution.

I'd like wikimedia-wide contribution (including deleted edits) to be attributed to my current account:

http://toolserver.org/~quentinv57/tools/globalcontribs.php?username=White%20Cat&offset=0&limit=500&onlylastdays=&nbdays=0

Not all of my username renames request are complete as I am waiting for 29 more requests:

http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Quentinv57#Bulk_username_rename_request

I will post here when that is complete.

Is there anything to be done on the WMF side or are you just using this bug to track the on-wiki request?

The last on-wiki rename was conducted today. I'd like the remaining edits shown by quentinv57's tool attributed to me. These edits are on wikis where I currently have two accounts and have been made through "User:White Cat" by accident.

Also there are edits in locked wikis and due to [[bug:Bug 34501]] these ( http://toolserver.org/~quentinv57/tools/sulinfo.php?username=White+Cat&showlocked=1 ) cannot be renamed. Mind you there is no consensus to rename accounts in locked wikis at this point and I am providing this information to avoid problems.

とある白い猫: As I cannot find that section on your user talk page anymore, what's the status?

I still have some edits that is waiting to be attributed.

It would be nice if these are attributed. Some are on Wikimania wikis that are locked others are on live wikis like meta.

How to find them?
What exactly do you mean by "attributed"? Merging accounts?
If so, also see

The revisions are listed at http://toolserver.org/~quentinv57/tools/globalcontribs.php?username=White%20Cat&offset=0&limit=500&onlylastdays=&nbdays=0

The traditional means cannot attribute them as there are accounts with both usernames. Either rename wasn't able to attribute everything (due to bugs) or edits were somehow created using the other login due to SUL confusion.

We all love your renames, but I'm sure you know that this is not going to be done ever... We don't merge accounts on Wikimedia projects, at all.

This was partially done already. I was specifically asked to file this, I do not understand. I have been waiting for this since September 2011.

Would be good to know who asked, and for which reason.

It was by a Steward so long ago about a few weeks before this bug entry was filed. These were edits not properly attributed or moved due to software issues after the rename from back then. I want my edits to be attributed to me on my current account. Attitude problem of Nemo aside (seriously) what exactly is preventing you or another dev from doing this simple query?

Most devs don't have access to run queries or do anything in WMF production.
