I didn't realize it, but the Mike Lifeguard "lock" on Thekohser impacts my ability to participate in the German Wikipedia, as I have done in the past.

I am requesting Steward assistance with my account, here. If any of the WR faithful are regulars on the German Wikipedia, please lend a hand. German isn't my first language.

Were you helped yet? If not, maybe you should try post your request to meta. If you're blocked one meta, I could do it for you.

According to the block log, Pathoschild changed the block to let the local community decide.

Tinz unblocked you on May 10, 2010. You should be unblocked there, I would think? unsure.gif

Thekohser's de.wiki account is still unified with the global account, so it is affected by the lock.

Yeah. I asked Mike about why he reinstated the lock, after Pathoschild had done all that work to allow local communities to make their own decisions. (He went around and blocked locally, thus allowing local admins to unblock. It appears that some did, so Mike, he claimed, had a "discussion" with unspecified persons and relocked without any public discussion. And nobody has had the chutzpah to unlock, so far. Any local 'crat can rename. My guess is that de.wikipedia might do it, as did Wikiversity and Wikibooks and one or two more.

Bingo. I need a local German bureaucrat to to rename my account, to get out from under the "global lock", then rename it back again, so that I can be "me" on the German Wikipedia, where I had been a contributor in good standing.

Oh jeez, I feel so sorry for you that you can't edit Jimbo's German language free-for-all site.
