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:    Done

Adminor is an en.Wikipedia-confirmed puppet. नमन1 makes Virajmishra-related vandalism, possibly another puppet. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 19:22, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

This is my all accounts.नमन1 (talk) 19:25, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
CU completed independently of this request. – Ajraddatz (talk) 15:35, 24 May 2018 (UTC)


Status:    Done

This user has had the capacity to get the first account locked, the second blocked; though the information about specifics is not overtly public. They have started a third account which at this stage has not been problematic and seems to be patrolling. I asked the user to identify all their accounts, and this is their list. Can you please check for others, as the result of the veracity of their answer will guide me on my future actions.  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:22, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

Supplementary: This user has managed blocks at other wikis.  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:24, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

I have never used any accounts apart from these ones. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rufus Rose (talk) 07:42, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

Tangentially related: en:Wikipedia talk:Long-term abuse/My_Royal_Young #How many physical persons is My_Royal_Young? Incnis Mrsi (talk) 07:58, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

I know, I saw that. and just so you know, I'm not related to Principe Joeseph. nice idea though. I might as well not bother though. P. S. I did find the Principe ybarro thing through recent changes. Sincerely, Rufus R. (talk) 08:02, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

I don’t believe in a genuinely new user starting to edit from LTA user: pages and recent changes. This explanation is unsatisfactory. Incnis Mrsi (talk)
Maybe people should try to trust me for a change. See my user talk pages history. I see no more reason to continue here anymore except to disrupt, because I tried to be constructive, but failed. Goodbye. Rufus R. (talk) 08:25, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

I will stay for a while.

@Incnis Mrsi: You don't need to tell our CUs how to do their tasks, they are experienced and have contact with CU from all other wikis. Plus, if you have no evidence, putting forward your rumours/guesses are not helpful, and maybe worthwhile keeping quiet.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:07, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
Done, completed separately from this request. – Ajraddatz (talk) 15:36, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

See my talk page and Meta:Requests for CheckUser information/Archives/2018#Liza Veniza. Thanks. Oleg3280 (talk) 18:57, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

Basntarah (Баснтарах in Russian) is Liza Veniza's sock, look down at this diff. "Ишне Шлюха" — is Liza Veniza's word. Look here for verify. Marshmallych 08:31, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
I think, this is in inconclusive by IPs and confirmed by treatments. I think, Liza Veniza/Basntarah doesn't user IP for this time. Marshmallych 08:33, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
"inconclusive by IPs" becuase I saw steward's logs, and LTA vandal uses the different IPs. Marshmallych 08:34, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

Comment Comment How can check-users compare three instances of the vandal going via different proxies? The only thing of use is whether the vandal has a permanent User-Agent, but generally I deem this request to have very little clue, as we already know whose edits are from a clear behavioural pattern. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 12:14, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Inconclusive Inconclusive from the technical evidence. Accounts have been locked or blocked based on behavioural evidence, and some underlying IPs blocked. – Ajraddatz (talk) 15:37, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

Unidentified cross-wiki impersonator[edit]

Status:    In progress
Note: additions by Cinemantique are out of scope of the original request – these accounts are ordinary Liza_Veniza for whom countermeasures are established and traits are well-known. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 06:50, 12 June 2018 (UTC)

The person under these accounts has two main traits:

  1. An explicit intent to impersonate another LTA;
  2. Ability to mimic some aspects of imitated vandals, especially attacks against chosen people and on specific wikis.

But a close scrutiny reveals that he repeats words from foreign languages like a parrot. c:Special:Contributions/LammyTrammy and cu:Special:Contributions/Duvallier Duval are clearly related, and I received some hearsay it could be Wikinger.

This series may (or may not) be related to each of several bizarre incidents happening recently.

Incnis Mrsi (talk) 10:19, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

Incnis Mrsi, Basntarah is genuine Liza Veniza. Napoleon Sorting is, for me, is suspected sock of Liza Veniza. Писос is is more looked like Liza Veniza's vandalism, like a "coime back". If here I tagged as <s>, here I think here is a impersonator:

False. Marshmallych 14:00, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

I think I am trolled you like here... Marshmallych 10:59, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

@Marshmallych: can you point to the “coime back” cliché by a clearly authentic Liza’s sock? Incnis Mrsi (talk)
Incnis Mrsi, I think, "coime back" is LV. I am agree impersonators are Duvallier Duval and LammyTrammy (officially Krassotkin~ruwiking). Marshmallych 14:00, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
I think we need a check. It is impossible to contribute normally to Russian Wikipedia. Very nervous situation is obtained. Mats and insults bothered. Thanks. Oleg3280 (talk) 11:21, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
@Oleg3280: note that the authentic Liza is also currently active – see fr:Special:Contributions/Limonnerq. It becomes hard to tell who is who in this mess. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 11:34, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

After and some off-wiki discussion the case has no more interest for me. The home IP range of the impersonator—no more “unknown”—is globally blocked. Vandalisms via proxies should be treated as vandalism, no matter who namely each vandal is. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 12:29, 12 June 2018 (UTC)
