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

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)


Oppose Oppose: Please seek local consensus before posting an RFCU here, thank you.-- 05:00, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
Realistically speaking, I would approve this check, to check technically if this user is a sockpuppet of another user.--1233 | Questions?| This message is left by him at 09:34, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
Fishing CheckUser is not for fishing — regards, Revi 15:31, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
  • @-revi: Now it is not just fishing. I have just added to {{CU request}}. This IP address has similar editing inclination to 简单时刻's and different editing time with that user.--CopperSulfate (talk) 09:36, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
    We do not perform checks with IPs. Accounts with accounts only. — regards, Revi 09:38, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
Please close this request. The user is trying to avoid local discussion before sending the request to meta-checkuser, and we have a consensus that local discussion is needed pre-CU.--Innocentius Aiolos 13:40, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
