Requests and proposals Requests for CheckUser information on Meta-Wiki (for other wikis please go to here) Archives (current)→
This page allows you to request CheckUser information on Meta.
  • Please read the CheckUser policy before asking for a check.
  • When adding new requests, please use the {{checkuser}} template to list the user names in question and {{checkip}} for IP adresses, which simplifies investigation.
  • List your request at the bottom of the "Requests for Meta-Wiki only" heading.
  • When asking for a check we need to know:
    • why do you believe that the accounts are related (please present evidence for that with the help of diffs, etc.),
    • why, if the accounts are related, they are being used abusively, in violation of policy; and
    • why a block or other measures can't be justified without the need of technical evidence.

Requests for Meta-Wiki only[edit]

Nihilo, Citizen www & Zaratustra27[edit]

Status:    Not done

The reason why I believe they're all the same user is because his actions on meta and are all to try to descredit the actual Wikimedia Ecuador user group proposal. The user Citizen www has created his account and shown an actual knowledge of wiki-editing, when he created Wikimedistas de Ecuador page. Off-wiki, the people signing on that meta page had told me Citizen www is an actual editor of past years, calling him "one of the best editors on Wikipedia" but were unable to tell me his real username. He declares himself "Coordinador Ad Hoc" on his meta page and here, which is almost the same behavior Nihilo had in the past when asking for unblocking on here. The ip's are the ones from where he had edited before on that request and here. This is needed also if this should be taken to an outside-instance, because the problem's going off wiki too. --Edjoerv (talk) 21:03, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

Note CU comment: Some technical notes:
  1. Nihilo is not registered at Meta-Wiki, thus can't be checked.
  2. Even if we did a cross-check with eswiki, Nihilo's account at eswiki and eswikinews can't be checked either because his most recent edits are from 2009 and CU data don't last such a long time.
  3. The IPs you mention from the unblock request faces the same problems:
  4. All that remains would be to check if Citizen www (talkcontribs) and Zaratustra27 (talkcontribs) are related.
Multiple accounts are not forbidden unless they're being abused. And talking about the two that are registered in Meta, just only one have editted and I can't see any vandalism or other kind of abuse which may justify using this tool. Unless you can convince us otherwise, I'm leaning towards declining this request for all the problems said above. Maybe ChapCom would be willing to have a look at the issue though. Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 11:06, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

JP TV show-alike account[edit]

I've noticed this account since it originated from the Japanese Wikiquote, and its naming convention looks quite similar to a local known vandal: naming under a certain local TV show or coined, including a local celebrity, and sometimes sounds defamatory. This account uses global user page so did an edit on meta so that I ask for check on this account. There may be other accounts underlying the same IP address, or hopefully not. --Aphaia (talk) 23:42, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

One item added. --Aphaia (talk) 05:22, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
