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.

Requests[edit]

Neploxie@en.wikinews[edit]

@Martin Urbanec: I think it would be more appropriate for you to handle it. Thank you. --Sotiale (talk) 09:30, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
@Sotiale and Martin Urbanec: Is this being handled on your end elsewhere? Thanks. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:43, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
It looks like Martin had handled something related, so I handed it over to him, but if he is busy, someone can handle it. --Sotiale (talk) 13:19, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

Kevin Seefried on tires@en.wikinews[edit]

@Acagastya: Hello. All of these accounts are locked, and from the reason they are locked, they all appear to be the same user. Is there a separate need for investigation? --Sotiale (talk) 03:13, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
@Sotiale: I didn't know they were locked. If they are, there is no point in further investigation, you can close this.

OK :) --Sotiale (talk) 13:13, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
