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

Why do you think they are the same person? Ruslik (talk) 19:02, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
Dear Ruslik, first of all because Tubus started to edit in Wikipedia since MrArifnajafov stopped his activity more than one year ago. In last few days while voting is ongoing MrArifnajafov started to edit, but Tubus is not active on the same days. Also their manner of editing and communication looks similar. Both of them are making some mistakes in articles specific for them. We don't know really, but MrArifnajafov says that he is living in Germany. Maybe it also can help you in identification of sock. Voting ended one hour ago and as a result MrArifnajafov keeps sysop flag by 1 vote difference. So this request is very important to come to a final decision. I'm an administrator in az-wiki. Thank you in advance.--Wertuose (talk) 19:51, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
I agree with Wertuose in all points. And want to inform you that Tubus's vote decides the fate of admin flag.--Sortilegus (talk) 20:06, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
Confirmed Confirmed @Sortilegus, Wertuose: I didn't see any others.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:21, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much. Mehran Debate 14:37, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

There is no need to know whether they are the same person to manage poor or abusive editing. We need a reason that effects how we manage the problems and how knowing this information better informs (y)our actions.  — billinghurst sDrewth 14:53, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
Got your point. Will deal the problem locally. Thank you for your time ~ Nahid Talk 19:14, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your understanding.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:24, 18 October 2014 (UTC)


Unrelated Unrelated Last time that I can see an evident account shared is early September, and I am not even certain that it edited, and I didn't chase further.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:29, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
