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-->
     |language code   = 
     |project shortcut= 
     |user name1      = 
     |user name2      = 
     |user name3      = 
    <!-- Max 10 users -->
     |discussion      = [[Example]]<!-- local confirmation link / local policy link -->
     |reason          = Reasons here. ~~~~

    For example:

    === Example@en.wikipedia ===
    {{CU request
     |status          = <!--don't change this line-->
     |language code   = en
     |project shortcut= w
     |user name1      = Example
     |user name2      = Foo
     |user name3      = Bar
    <!-- Max 10 users -->
     |discussion      = [[:w:en:Example]]<!-- local confirmation link / local policy link -->
     |reason          = Reasons here. ~~~~

Thanks علاء. @MCC214: as per IRC discussion with علاء, these request will be better processed faster + better if this format is used "(list of all accounts + just write request to find sleepers)"-علاء words with mine explanation in bold. Thanks --Cohaf (talk) 17:56, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Lagoo sab@en.wikipedia[edit]

  • @Cabayi:. You can CU enwiki contributions for accounts on enwiki only. Likewise you can CU wikidata contributions for accounts on wikidata only. Not to match the info on wikidata on one account to enwp data for another. Loginwiki maybe useful but in this way it's really fishing. Why not file it as a wikidata CU then? I don't think policy allows crosswiki global CU? --Cohaf (talk) 06:30, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Unrelated Unrelated based on a login-wiki check. @Cohaf: Cross-wiki check can be performed if necessary by stewards. In fact such checks are not rare. Ruslik (talk) 08:48, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
    • @Ruslik0: Noted with thanks but it's only limited to loginwiki right? That's what I'm thinking. There's no way to CU User A enwp contribution to compare with User B wikidata contributions? Just to clarify.--Cohaf (talk) 09:35, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
      • Checkusers can exchange information. In addition, stewards sometimes do checks directly across multiple wikis. Ruslik (talk) 10:16, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
        • @Ruslik0: Thanks. :). I also notice quite a few of these. --Cohaf (talk) 10:22, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
  • On other hand Sailsamiras (contr · deleted · block · log · block log · CA · guc · checkuser · lwcheckuser) can be a Possible Possible sock of both accounts. Ruslik (talk) 10:15, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
