This page is for requesting CheckUser information on a wiki with no local CheckUsers (see also requesting checkuser access). Make sure to follow the following instructions, or your request may not be processed in a timely manner.

Before making a request:

  1. Make sure you have a good reason for the check. It will only be accepted to counter vandalism or disruption to Wikimedia wikis. Valid reasons include needing a block of the underlying IP or IP range, disruptive sockpuppetry, vote-stacking, and similar disruption where the technical evidence from running a check would prevent or reduce further disruption.
  2. Be specific in your reasons. Ambiguous or insufficient reasons will cause delays. Explain the disruption and why you believe the accounts are related, ideally using diff links or other evidence.
  3. Make sure there are no local checkusers or policies.
  4. Please ensure that the check hasn't already been done:


How to make a request

How to make a request:

  • Place your request at the bottom of the section, using the template below (see also {{srcu}} help).
    === Username@xx.project ===
    {{CU request
     |status          = <!--don't change this line-->
     |language code   = 
     |project shortcut= 
     |user name1      = 
     |user name2      = 
     |user name3      = 
    <!-- Max 10 users -->
     |discussion      = [[Example]]<!-- local confirmation link / local policy link -->
     |reason          = Reasons here. ~~~~
    }}
    

    For example:

    === Example@en.wikipedia ===
    {{CU request
     |status          = <!--don't change this line-->
     |language code   = en
     |project shortcut= w
     |user name1      = Example
     |user name2      = Foo
     |user name3      = Bar
    <!-- Max 10 users -->
     |discussion      = [[:w:en:Example]]<!-- local confirmation link / local policy link -->
     |reason          = Reasons here. ~~~~
    }}
    
  • Specify the wiki(s) you want to perform the check on.

Requests[edit]

Αχιλλεύς 7@el.wikipedia[edit]

Having the same arguments as another is not a criteria for a checkuser request. How is the activity disruptive? Is there block evasion? Is there an attempt to pervert a vote of the community? There has to be a valid reason for a checkuser that normal administration cannot manage, it is not Fishing CheckUser is not for fishing. I don't see that you are a checkuser and able to act upon any information.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:49, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

Ok. Nevermind. The reason was that they both create an account this month and they only contribute in voting against the merge of two articles, using similar expressions. Thanks for your time.... Xaris333 (talk) 16:02, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: FYI, Marking this as Not done--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 18:57, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Iberism Soon@es.wikiquote[edit]

Iberism Soon has one sock - D. CAIX. asunto. Other accounts may be related to it or may be not. ZIV88 account does not exist. Ruslik (talk) 16:38, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, Ruslik. I will block the accounts as they are clearly related to Citadme. LlamaAl (talk) 16:45, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

MS recurring vandal[edit]

Status:    Done

Vandal keep inserting his claims in multiple articles. For evidence, please refer to deleted user history. Believe the IP is from Britain (possible student?) as previous similar vandals since block. Suspect is familiar with Wiki syntax & proxy IP. As MS do not have IP checkuser, current approach is to block user as and when it is detected. Need assistant to block the IP if static / assistant to monitor vandal at MS. Yosri (talk) 07:28, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

  • I'm dealing with this (request should be for the Stewards, will move it shortly) QuiteUnusual (talk) 11:57, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
All these accounts are the same person but they are not using a static IP as it changes occasionally. It is a British broadband IP in a busy student town so you could be right that this is a student. A range block won't be effective so you can only block the accounts as they appear, sorry. QuiteUnusual (talk) 12:19, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

MS Vandal[edit]

SiapaPerluBertanggungjawabMH370 [SULinfo] – [cross-wiki-contribs]

How come this new user can create a lot of edit. Isn`t there a limit for new user edit? Yosri (talk) 22:38, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

If there is a limit, then it wasn't editing fast enough to trigger it. There is a main IP being used which has now been autoblocked, though like QU said above they are using a couple of IPs. I'll email you the main IP to block if you wish. Ajraddatz (talk) 23:07, 10 April 2014 (UTC)
Let me consult with another admin. Tq for your assistant. Yosri (talk) 05:44, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
I agree the main IP should be properly blocked. An autoblock doesn't last very long. ...Aurora... (talk) 15:24, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Locked these three. Unfortunately an IP block isn't stopping them. Ajraddatz (talk) 23:12, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your assistant. As we (MS) have no checkuser, I will update here as and when it happen. Your assistant in blocking the IP is much appreciated. What will happen, will happen. Yosri (talk) 01:43, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

SHIROKABE@global (several wikis)[edit]

The master accounts are probably stale, but the new sock (SHIROKABE) is showing a pattern consistent with the others (cross-wiki hat collecting and copy/pasting).--Jasper Deng (talk) 07:27, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Request withdrawn, behavorial evidence was strong enough.--Jasper Deng (talk) 07:56, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
