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. ~~~~

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: [1], [2], [3]) that Exspell was a sock of the legendary globally locked sockmaster Vrahomarinaner [4](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)

@-revi: @Ruslik0: can you please have a look at this request? It has been nine days since I posted it. Thanks. Glucken123 (talk) 11:21, 23 July 2018 (UTC)

Dear -revi, can you please let me know if this is the right place to request a usercheck? It was placed almost two weeks ago, but still no response from any of the stewards.. Glucken123 (talk) 11:15, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

Request delay is common thing here, primarily for lack of enough stewards doing CU and there's already enough other tasks. — regards, Revi 11:16, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
I see! Happy to wait. I would appreciate if you could have a look once you find some time for other tasks. Thanks in advance. Glucken123 (talk) 18:25, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
  • update User Gts-tg, a sysop in the el-WP has added (August 8th) user Skylax30 to the list of suspected sockmasters [5]. He has explained in detail his belief, and he gave some evidence in the Admins Board of el-WP [6] (in Greek; here a google/machine translation in English of its main points=first paragraphs). User Skylax30 has a 3 months block [7] until the end of August. So, if Exspell (who is a sock for sure, according to its behaviour) is found to be him, then Skylax30 will face the consequences of bypassing his blocking via a sockpuppet. This is a new turn to the case, since the other users (ΕρΚιλλ/Μαντίνγκο, Vrahomarinaner) suspected as sockmasters are already blocked indefinitely for sockpuppetry, but Skylax30 is not blocked but for three months (and for another reason, personal attack). ——Chalk19 (talk) 07:01, 9 August 2018 (UTC)
