This page is for requesting CheckUser information on a wiki with no local CheckUsers (see also requesting checkuser access). Make sure to follow the following instructions, or your request may not be processed in a timely manner.

Before making a request:

  1. Make sure you have a good reason for the check. It will only be accepted to counter vandalism or disruption to Wikimedia wikis. Valid reasons include needing a block of the underlying IP or IP range, disruptive sockpuppetry, vote-stacking, and similar disruption where the technical evidence from running a check would prevent or reduce further disruption.
  2. Be specific in your reasons. Ambiguous or insufficient reasons will cause delays. Explain the disruption and why you believe the accounts are related, ideally using diff links or other evidence.
  3. Make sure there are no local checkusers or policies.
  4. Please ensure that the check hasn't already been done:

How to make a request

How to make a request:

  • Place your request at the bottom of the section, using the template below (see also {{srcu}} help).
    === Username@xx.project ===
    {{CU request
     |status          = <!--don't change this line-->

     |project shortcut= 
     |user name1      = 
     |user name2      =

Hidden username@wikidata[edit]

Status:    Done

Can one of you check out this vandal at Thanks. Drmies (talk) 03:40, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

  • Rschen7754 Could you comment on this?--Cohaf (talk) 05:42, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
    • I am neither a CheckUser nor a steward, so no. --Rschen7754 05:52, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done; no further accounts found. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:59, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

Hotline again[edit]

Status:    Done

Now via . Thanks. Drmies (talk) 02:50, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

  • Mentifisto, are you around? And will one of you please protect that WikiQuote talk page, that talk page that I never asked for on a project that I never edit, and that only invites this little troll and others? Drmies (talk) 02:57, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
Drmies, if you're requesting a global block please see SRG. Also, in most cases, stewards will not protect pages on wikis with active admins. You can find a local Wikiquote's admin noticeboard here. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 03:02, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
Sorry, but right now I don't care about technicalities. Stewards, CUs, assistance and suppression requested at User:DoctorMichelAaij on WikiQuote. Seriously, WikiQuote seems to be a weak damn link. Drmies (talk) 03:24, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
This probably needs a RD also. The speedy deletion does nothing apparently.--Cohaf (talk) 03:35, 6 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Everything seems to have been taken care of. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:29, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

a ton of accounts@din.wikipedia[edit]

  • Should a soft close be considered also since there is a void of local editors?--Cohaf (talk) 18:04, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
I'd rather not start that discussion here. Praxidicae (talk) 18:17, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Learning Ln@th.wikipedia[edit]

  • We found the sockpuppet of 29 users now. Would there be any possibility of recommend about manage sockpuppet into the local administrators ? --Geonuch (talk) 05:00, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
