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.
  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. ~~~~
  • Specify the wiki(s) you want to perform the check on.

@Turkmen: I don't get it. Where is the abuse? And why are they alike to eachother? Trijnsteltalk 13:37, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
@Trijnstel: The way users work and write articles is the same.--Turkmen talk 13:41, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
@Turkmen: And my other question? What is the abuse? Trijnsteltalk 13:54, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
@Trijnstel: In accordance with local rules of Azwiki, the user must register other accounts on the user page.--Turkmen talk 13:56, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
The user must note there all accounts on his/her user page.--Turkmen talk 14:30, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
@Trijnstel: ?--Turkmen talk 18:10, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

As you're involved with this desysop request - plus I find the reason to CU rather weak - I prefer to have a local discussion about this first. Trijnsteltalk 18:12, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

@Trijnstel: Understood thanks.--Turkmen talk 18:17, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
@Trijnstel: If all that accounts are controlling by one person, this is abuse. Both accounts joined the same discussion. It's abuse per our rules. Please help us to clarify this issue. Thanks in advance.--eldarado 21:45, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
Where's the evidence (hint: diffs) that this is the same person? Wikidata has similar rules on multiple accounts, but we would never put up a request so unsubstantiated as this. --Rschen7754 21:49, 24 November 2019 (UTC)
@Trijnstel:, @Rschen7754: Hi again, please find the discussion about this issue. Thanks --eldarado 19:55, 29 November 2019 (UTC)
