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]

Chitral CSX[edit]

Status:    Done

User created to ask a rename in a long-term abuse. See here. The requested username seems similar to Sher Aziz I, blocked in Wikimedia Commons, and Sher Aziz, a global locked user. Regards, Jmvkrecords (Intra talk) 16:14, 13 May 2017 (UTC).

Note Note: phab:T131207 is still not resolved so rename requests ain't logged via CU, so I'm not sure how a CU would be of any help here. It is obvious that all three accounts are vandals/socks per their blocks at other places and Meta as well. Regards, —MarcoAurelio 21:57, 15 May 2017 (UTC)
Note Note: Please note that Sher Aziz (I) accounts are Stale from a CU-POV as their edits cannot be queried using this tool anymore. The only account who might have some data is Chitral CSX, but then I have nothing to compare it with. I am therefore Declined declining the request as it's technically not possible in this case to relate all three accounts via CU. You'll have to rely on behavioural evidence. —MarcoAurelio 22:01, 15 May 2017 (UTC)
MarcoAurelio, I've added some information from June/July 2014 Commons checks on Sher Aziz and Deepak Chitrali (sock) here in case it would be useful. Эlcobbola talk 20:58, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
CU data is Inconclusive Inconclusive on Meta, having compared it with elcobbola's data. However I shall note that Chitral CSX is blocked on enwiki as per this SPI which if I read correctly might somewhat be related to this other one?. If those cases are related then the accounts will also be related as well. Given the abuse of the global rename feature by Chitral and their block on enwiki, I am globally locking the account. —MarcoAurelio 12:22, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
Notwithstanding the above, the accounts, Chitral CSX, Transformer X, Akbar ali ghazi, History of Baltistan, Παναγιωτα ιωαννου-σαρρα, Rehmat Aziz Chitrali Gold Medalist & Rehmat Aziz Chitrali appear related from a technical point of view and are also blocked elsewhere. —MarcoAurelio 12:31, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Spambots[edit]

Status:    In progress

Long string of "Kardashian" spambots showing in abuselog, would someone please have a look to see if we can manage them with a range block, thanks. If you want an easier list to grab see my block log Special:Log/block/billinghurst  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:14, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: Any filter in particular? I am not seeing Kardashian anywhere? —MarcoAurelio 11:19, 21 May 2017 (UTC)
