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:

Μαυρο Μαργαριταρι@el.wikipedia[edit]

  • update. In the meantime, users Μαυρο Μαργαριταρι, Tina ftore, Ερωφίλη, Ορενόκος, Mangaolo, and Crveno belli have been blocked indefinitely for abusive use of multiple accounts in the Greek-language WP. ——Chalk19 (talk) 22:38, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
  • Afaik, every account in the request list above has been blocked indefinitely in el-WP due to sockpuppetry (Vrahomarinaner). It seems that there is no need to run this CU. Ασμοδαίος, please correct me if I 'm wrong.--Dipa1965 (talk) 17:00, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
I agree with the above comment by Dipa1965 that there is no need to perform a check-user on all these accounts, as all of them have now been blocked indefinitely with the sole exception of "ΜάκηςΚεφαλονίτης" -- it would be useful to receive a reply from the administrators regarding this case. Ασμοδαίος (talk) 08:42, 20 July 2018 (UTC)


Good to see that after my last comment here you reflected about some of your mistakes and double standards and decided to finally report user:Cinephile-al properly. The report comes a little late as you already blocked some users above under the pretext of being "socks" of Cinephile-al (1, and that with NO confirmation, and on top of that you also asked the community on Albanian Wikipedia to vote on permanently blocking @Cinephile-al:. One of the reasons you gave there is that after being banned he socked with new accounts and IPs, vandalizing and insulting. Again you had no confirmation for your claims, yet you asked the community to block him permanently. This happened after he criticized you here for your abuses. On the other hand you still refuse to block a confirmed sockpuppet of Hatake, which is one of the accusations user:Cinephile-al made against you.--Udha (talk) 14:34, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
Ok, I'm not going to comment here further as this seems to be improper. I'm sorry.--Udha (talk) 15:02, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
Not doing the check but  No comment with respect to IP address(es). — regards, Revi 16:13, 15 May 2018 (UTC)


A trolling request modeled after the case "Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου@el.wikipedia" by user "I will apologise" / "Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου" (= user "Ελλ" = user "Digital Greece"; see "Ελλ@el.wikipedia"). User "Φαλτσέτα" (obviously a sock) claims to be user "Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου" [1] [2], but its is not clear whether he is actually "Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου", or is user "Tακλαμακαν" (an idle, stale account). "Tακλαμακαν" is a sockmaster and troll active in the Greek-language WP thru its socks and an army of IPs (see my remarks in the above link to "Ελλ@el.wikipedia", [3]). "Tακλαμακαν", as shown especially in the case of his socks "ΕρΚιλλ" and "Μαντίνγκο" [4], had created a sockpuppet specially designed to look like someone else's sock in order to frame the other user and bring confusion to the rest of us in the Greek-language WP. ——Chalk19 (talk) 12:10, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

Trolling request for you, because it will proove you wrong. First you called "Ελλ" as "Παπαποστόλου" (in the request of "Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου@el.wikipedia you have spoken for "former accusations for accusations about me and Τακλαμακαν) and today you are accussating me that i'm Τακλαμακαν! Now, who is the troller?--Φαλτσέτα (talk) 13:20, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

BTW in Greek wikipedia i blocked by MARKELLOS as "Νικόλας Παπαποστόλου" but in my user page there is a sign that i'm a puppet of Τακλαμακαν. Anyways.--Φαλτσέτα (talk) 13:23, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

update No reason to run this CU. In the meantime, user "Φαλτσέτα" has been blocked indefinitely (June 2nd) in the in the Greek-language WP for improper use of multiple accounts. ——Chalk19 (talk) 07:16, 5 June 2018 (UTC)


  • 极其可爱的破坏者 means a very cute man who does some vandalisms.我领十万鬼神兵踏破维基坐朝廷means he wants to be the emperor of Wikipedia with a large army.NanoKid (talk) 06:13, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
    • Removed one unrelated name.--1233 | Questions?| This message is left by him at 07:16, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
      • Do note that the 2nd name have a meta userpage, which meant in English quite similar to the user namr explanation as above. If proven, do assist to delete the meta page . Thanks --Cohaf (talk) 13:37, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
    • (With a large army of ghosts.)--Brror (talk) 07:52, 8 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Please on hold, a user admitted on zhwp HAM, will confirm and update here.Locally  Confirmed, this request could be cancelled.-- CreampieGolden State Finals Champion 07:42, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
    • Rationale: user disclosed their undisclosed alternative account. So it's a "sort of" legit sock.--Cohaf (talk) 12:47, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
      • This cannot be right. Even if we disregard the usernames, looking through the user contributions, the two accounts were obviously created for disruptive purposes if not vandalism-only. I disagree that they can be considered as legitimate alternative accounts, and a check for sleepers should be helpful. Alex Shih (talk) 16:52, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
        • @Alex Shih:I looked through the users contributions (hack the user name - that's disruptive enough), I can see only one disruptive contribution per say which is the totally useless reporting of each other to UAA. I really can't fathom what exactly that does. Otherwise it's just contributions to "user space" - useless but not disruptive (not as if there are near to a hundred / thousand edits). For the welcome messages, it's alright as zhwiki has an automatic user welcoming system which at times doesn't work, it cannot be deemed as disruptive or else the entire bot that is welcoming will need to be banned. However, notwithstanding, I will convey your concerns to the relevant fillers. In addition, a local sysop user:Lakokat has in fact helped one of the user to create the local user pages.--Cohaf (talk) 03:13, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
          • @Alex Shih:Since all had been active and none replied, case considered closed. For clarification, it's user disclosed their undisclosed alternative accounts. --Cohaf (talk) 00:32, 16 July 2018 (UTC)


 Confirmed. Another sock is 葫葡萄. Ruslik (talk) 17:45, 17 July 2018 (UTC)


  • I requests to apply checkuserblock on IP used on by this account and do range blocking if possible to admin later with CUP#1,also add 鄭維順,陳鴻傑,鄭春原,楊水賢,江原興,楊順正,楊屋成,楊國福,陳勝澤,王福賢,黃聖德,陳富政,張德聯 ,王富吉,紙短情長,我們不一樣 and 現在不跳舞要幹嘛.--MCC214#Talk with me 11:21, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
minor copyedit done--Cohaf (talk) 12:46, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
  • @-revi: Could you please process this request? Thanks. --TimChen (talk) 09:26, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Just to note that some new accounts were added recently. I think this warrants a check as the suspected accounts are prolific and the disruption is ongoing. Alex Shih (talk) 13:23, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Luke Jedi Skywalker@en.wikiquote[edit]


I noticed this today while checking AN at Wikiquote. While I have given up fighting with Jedi, I do agree with what Feitoria says. I have seen many accounts on the same pages with similar edit pattern to Jedi3. Their only goal is POV-pushing against other religions. While his opinions are not my problem any more, his persistent sockpuppetry cannot be ignored. MonsterHunter32 (talk) 09:34, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

  • It is very strange that User:Feitora has otherwise no contributions at Wikiquote. However, his global wiki edits have exactly the same pattern as those of User:Xsaorapa. Please check if these 2 accounts User:Feitoria and User:Xsaorapa are socks. Wikiquote adminboard have suspected that User:Xsaorapa is probably a sock puppet. See also my comment at previous. --Luke Jedi Skywalker (talk) 11:02, 17 July 2018 (UTC)
Feitora is  Confirmed to be a sock of Xsaorapa. Luke Jedi Skywalker is also a Possible Possible sock of this user. Nwalker3 is Stale. Ruslik (talk) 17:42, 17 July 2018 (UTC)


minor copyedit done. --Cohaf (talk) 12:44, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

Assistant Re@zh.wikipedia[edit]



Likely Likely Ruslik (talk) 17:49, 14 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks! It would be same type of accounts who is someone is behind here: Valentinfronea68 as sockpuppet of Valentinfronea. Regards, Web SourceContent. I wait for sysop to take action. Web Source Self-Management System (talk) 14:51, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

Lludha @sq.wikipedia[edit]


Comment Comment Possible connection between the two from another point of view: a theoretical perspective. "ΕρΚιλλ" (=ErKill in latin letters) was a trοll and sock (see case Ελλ@el.wikipedia) who was running after user Τζερόνυμο. Its name derives from Killer (Κill er > Er kill > ErKill), ostensibly implying that its purpose was "to kill" Τζερόνυμο, meaning making things so difficult for him in WP, in order to force him to quit. "Exspell" is Expel (although misspelled), meaning of course that its aim is expelling user Τζερόνυμο from WP, since "Exspell" is contributing in a way that reminds "ΕρΚιλλ". ——Chalk19 (talk) 16:26, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

PS. In the beginning, right after user Exspell appeared, some users of the Greek-language WP -Glucken was among them, too- had been thinking (see: [5], [6], [7]) that Exspell was a sock of the legendary globally locked sockmaster Vrahomarinaner [8](about him cf. Μαυρο Μαργαριταρι@el.wikipedia inter alia). The whole setting of Expells's user page points to this direction. ——Chalk19 (talk) 20:48, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

Comment Comment restored: I would almost verify the meaning of my nickname, if Tzeronymo was an evil spirit. Actually it has to do with (magic) spell. Fortunately, now in Greece the mood is for a cold retsina by the sea.--Exspell (talk) 08:20, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

[[#ref_{{{1}}}|^]]  The user who requested this CU, deleted today my above comment. It's a tactic he applies in the greek WP to suppress opinions, but he doesn't have the right to do it here. Does he? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Exspell (talk) 15:58, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

Comment Comment User Exspell is once again violating the rules of this request, as it appears that he is not aware of the legislation. After all, it is well-known that this is NOT a vote, but a technical request exclusively to administrators of Meta. In other words, I can once again see another attempt to hinder the completion of the checkuser. That was the case only a few months ago with user Ελλ, who opened dialogue and later accused me of inappropriate practices, yet he was the one lying about his multiple sock puppets. A coincidence? Who knows, right? Without further ado, I am going to let the administrators do their job as noted and wait patiently for the final outcome of the check. Again, thanks for your patience and assistance. It's needless to mention that I already know what the outcome will be. Best. Glucken123 (talk) 16:31, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

He knows already!--Exspell (talk) 16:35, 19 July 2018 (UTC)


ptwiki has their own checkusers. — regards, Revi 12:45, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
