Hi, For some reason I've got two user accounts on translatewiki.net, probably due to a misunderstanding concerning username and a display-name, or even the fact that my display-name contains a special UTF-8 letter.

I'm currently using Sveinn í Felli but my old login was Sveinki. It would be nice (and useful for avoiding misunderstandings) to have this latter account point to the former, or to merge them so that Sveinn í Felli becomes prevailing.

Is this possible?

Yes, this is on TWN, where we are not in the WMF instance, so we can try merging your two accounts.

Can you please do it?

Should I send a specific request to someone? Where/Who?

We don't have any user merge extension here and there's no plan to install it, so I'd just decline this request. User:Sveinki has less than 500 edits; User:Sveinn í Felli is older, has an email address and was used recently. If you just stop using "Sveinki", you'll be fine. I can block and/or rename the account you don't want to use and you can place a redirect from one username from the other. We can also recover the password of either account if you lost it and the email address doesn't work.

"you can place a redirect from one username from the other" - yes, that was in my initial request. How can I redirect User:Sveinki to User:Sveinn í Felli ?

I've redirected them for you.
