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.
Procedure
  • 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]

Mardon A & AWAY1[edit]

Status:    In progress
moved from SRCU

Users under one user IP and voting in different projects, thus violating the requirements of the election procedure. "Since we have no local CheckUser, I ask you to clarify, the IP user Jaloliddin Madaminov Mardon A and AWAY1. Thanks.--Шухрат Саъдиев (talk) 03:42, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

@Шухрат Саъдиев: Could you please clarify on which project you want this check peformed and expand a bit more the reasons of it? Diff links and pages will help us better understand the situation. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio 15:43, 16 March 2017 (UTC)
Same user. Similarly Jaloliddin Madaminov, AWAY1 and Mardon A under different names writes articles:
  1. See [1] user:Mardon A and user:AWAY1
  2. Registered at AWAY1 and meta.wikimedia [2] 06.02. 2017 user:Jaloliddin Madaminov?
  3. All vote in Wikipedia projects [3] and other projects.Thanks --Шухрат Саъдиев (talk) 12:02, 17 March 2017 (UTC)

So the alleged abuse at Meta is suposed votestacking in RFNL pages. I'm going to ping @StevenJ81, since he closely monitors those pages and shares the same opinion. —MarcoAurelio 12:21, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

@MarcoAurelio: There's clearly commonality of interest here, and whether on-wiki or off-, at least two of these users admit to being "friends" (see Special:Diff/16358615). Does it exactly rise to the level of puppetry of some kind? I'm not inclined to think so, at least with respect to the edits on the RFNL pages on Meta. I'd add that there was really no doubt that the Tajik Wikiversity and Wiktionary projects would be considered "eligible" by the Language Committee. And !votes won't affect the final approval of these projects one way or the other. The projects will be approved if a community of people gets together and creates sufficient content in the projects over a sufficient period of time. The projects will not be approved if that doesn't happen. (Note: I cannot speak to the users' behavior on any other project.) StevenJ81 (talk) 19:26, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
