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:    In progress

Same rationale as the top request, the new account had registered in December, after Wikientertain was proposed by User:Arepticous. The account has edited only on Meta, with the goal of finding projects and supporting them. The account supported the same type of wiki (social wikis) and had supported the same wikis as the other socks. The account's first edits were to his/her user pages and their user talks, with a striking similarity between the messages. Doesn't seem terribly obvious, though best to check.

@RadiX, Ruslik0, and Tegel: I've read that "an editor's IP addresses may be checked upon their request, typically to prove innocence against a sockpuppet allegation". That's what I'm requesting. My account on meta, Jatharinan, was blocked because it was identified with a troll IP. This IP made a vandalism in it.wikipedia on the 31st of January, which was deleted by an Italian admin, but he wasn't blocked. After I'd logged in my account on the 2nd of February my account was globally blocked by another Italian admin. That was a mistake, since I haven't made that vandalism, and I don't understand on which bases I could have been identified with that troll. We had just one thing in common: the IP range, a common Italian IP range. Is "any registered used editing from a certain IP" for definition "any anonymous user editing from the same IP range"? I don't think this kind of identification is the rule here. The vandalism in that page about a Turkish cake had nothing to do with my actions here, apparently (as it was deleted so I don't know in what it consisted), so if the so called duck test is worth something you should check it, since you can view deleted edits: I'm sure it had really nothing to do with the socks I'd reported as Jatharinan, nor with final accents on Italian names. I'm asking for this CU request to prove that the IP I had when I last logged in before being blocked wasn't the same as the troll's, to prove my innocence. There's 1 chance over 65536 that the IP I had in that moment was the same the troll had 2 days before, if the check establishes that the IP is the same I'll accept the fact that I've just been very very unlucky and won't insist with the duck test, but if it establishes that the IP was different, as I think, I'm asking you to clean my reputation and unblock my account. This great mistake is the only reason why my CU request to stewards on meta about a cross-wiki vandal using proxies and sockpuppets was refused... 22:33, 16 February 2018 (UTC)
