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).

Please note that except Esperanto9999 all others would be Stale as CU data is only kept for a short period of time. No check user query ran here. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 20:19, 28 March 2018 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio: I keep finding more IPs, users and domains, but I see that CheckUser is not going to help on those either. I may however need a hand to have any (underlying) ranges globally blocked, they seem to be using open proxies and VPNs. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 15:20, 29 March 2018 (UTC)



Jessechi is, as you probably know, Stale before we start.
From the category, User:1by1, User:13adqezc, User:13579ol, User:3wsdr4, User:9to9, User:Aq3151, User:Aisidi, User:A8756, User:Atqatq, User:Coffeecorner, User:Eaaarataha, User:Goog00, User:Ilikehk, User:Kokookooo, User:Kiwiwoko, User:Mainaccount has been last active during March. (That category is big enough, so first page and last edit (via NavPopup) analyzed. — regards, Revi 16:19, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
Again, thank you revi for the analysis. However, please be aware that we haven't check Jessechi and his puppets from last November and most (if not all) of the accounts banned came from the   It looks like a duck to me decision from local sysops. I'm not saying that their interpretation was wrong, but there exist possibilities that some of these accounts might not be Jessechi. --Innocentius Aiolos 16:38, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
This isn't check result, I was just glancing over the category and trying to find a list of sock to compare with. I'm not doing the check for now. — regards, Revi 16:55, 17 April 2018 (UTC)
I added a username, Aq3151, since Aq3151 and Qwu105730 had made similar disruptive edits in w:zh:2018年中華民國直轄市長及縣市長選舉. --云间守望 - (Talk with WQL) 12:46, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

  • A and B are Likely Likely . A+B and C are Possible Possible .

 Behavioural evidence needs evaluation: I do not speak 中文.

It is not fair to block me due to I modified the entries just the same as others. I do not do any damage to wikis. Arch99 (talk) 02:07, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

I'm just presenting a technical data, as requested by Chinese Wikipedia community. The decision to block you was made by Chinese Wikipedia administrator, on Chinese Wikipedia, not Stewards on Meta. — regards, Revi 11:19, 23 April 2018 (UTC)


Just a reminder, please see Steward_requests/Checkuser/2018-04#Ray678123@zh.wikipedia and understand that Ray678123 is checked to be unrelated to the third account.--Innocentius Aiolos 20:51, 21 April 2018 (UTC)

    That didn't appear during my check yesterday. Are you asking for new check? — regards, Revi 08:04, 24 April 2018 (UTC)


Likely Likely Ruslik (talk) 20:19, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
Hello, I am a new sysop in sqwiki and I was wondering if the "likely" symbol is as strong as "confirmed", and if it should be treated that way. I do see the behavioral evidence presented by Udha, and there are some pointers there, but the "likely" symbol will need to be clarified further for me to block the user, who has been providing overall positive contributions. As far as the comment of Udha (Udha is currently blocked for disruption in sqwiki) for administrators who supposedly "unofficially" back and encourage Hatake, that is a lie, as every single confirmed sock of Hatake has been promptly blocked in sqwiki. I invite Udha to show evidence to the contrary. --1l2l3k (talk) 21:52, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
Likely means ‘A is likely to be related with B.’ — regards, Revi 22:03, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
