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]

Status:    Not done

I reject the request for three reasons:
  • a check can prove two users are sockpuppets but it cannot prove they are not;
  • it would be pretty easy to fool a check based on a single-day edits;
  • the original check at has been done more than a year ago, some kind of abuse of multiple accounts might cease in a year.

Hi Vituzzu, I have to agree with your denial. A meta-only checkuser is rather useless, as what I'm looking for is simply a "global" checkuser. I want any of my records, in any project, to be compared with those of Pelayo Calderón, as s/he and me are simply not the same person. Best regards --Discasto (talk) 21:23, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
I wouldn't think any other kind of check would work but I'm giving this answer as a local checkuser here at meta. Other requests should be handled elsewhere, honestly I'm not sure where but still not here. --Vituzzu (talk) 11:31, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
