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 Special:MyLanguage/CheckUser information on Meta.

  • Please read the Special:MyLanguage/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 addresses, 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Status:    Withdrawn

There are some concerns that they are all trolling by canvassing each other, which may too hard to be from different real users. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 03:36, 25 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No need to check them, they are three different users, Bassem and Michel are very well-known admins in Arabic Wikipedia. Bassem is also a check user in Arabic Wikipedia. they also had extended rights on other Wikis. Please check their meta pages. On the other hand, Zolgoyo is not related to them at all, doesn't know Arabic, and doesn't have access to Arabic Wikipedia and many more easy differences. This is a random UserChecking, please investigate more before asking to check users. --Sandra HANBO (talk) 07:08, 25 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Sandra Hanbo Have you read OA2022? Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 08:39, 25 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
i dont believe they are puppet. but i have concerns for canvassing too. ----modern_primat ඞඞඞ TALK 11:32, 25 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Note Note: Since canvassing, which is what is alleged in this request, is not something CheckUser can uncover, I'm leaning towards declining this CU request. CC: @Vermont & Xaosflux. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:37, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@MarcoAurelio I'm in decline here. @Liuxinyu970226, I'm not seeing that you have presented evidence here, just a list of users. Evidence should be supported by diffs, explaining which policies are being violated. Disruptive canvasing is generally about mass solicitations as well, contacting just 2 people falls short of that. — xaosflux Talk 13:55, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Note: if someone is disruptively canvassing, that can be brought up at RFH. — xaosflux Talk 13:56, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@MarcoAurelio and Xaosflux, how can't OA2022 be a reason too? Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 14:00, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Liuxinyu970226 if you have a specific office actions concern, you may contact directly. Checkuser is not a fishing expedition. If you are trying to report someone for global ban/lock evasion, the meta-wiki local checkuser request page (where we are now) is not the correct forum either. — xaosflux Talk 14:07, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay, I withdrawn. Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 14:08, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
