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]

Jack B Williamson[edit]

Long-term cross-wiki abuse. See en:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Brian K Horton for the English Wikipedia investigations. Jack B Williamson (block log) and Bernard Griffin (block log) have already been blocked as sockpuppets of Brian K Horton on the English Wikipedia. Karl Harrington has complained about the block of Bernard Griffin in Special:Diff/20528789. — Newslinger talk 09:04, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

See also the Steward requests/Global#Global lock for sockpuppets of Jack B Williamson for the pending global lock request. — Newslinger talk 09:08, 11 October 2020 (UTC)

 It looks like a duck to me. @Ajraddatz and Trijnstel: Should you feel differently and see a need to run a check, feel free to do it. Accounts' locked already.—MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:58, 24 October 2020 (UTC)
