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.

Symbol wait.svg Doing... Hard to say. I have the feeling these are multiple groups, but can't prove it yet. Could use help from someone else... Trijnsteltalk 19:16, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for your help. I will edit the request if I see other accounts created with the same unusual scheme of contributions. --Consulnico (talk) 19:24, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
Looking into the edits I can see different users with different UA editing from the same ip. I assume they are classmates or similar. In some cases they share UA and ip, it is not rare when there is a shared public machine. IMHO MP. --Melos (talk) 20:07, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for your time. We will investigate this. Two of the people I contacted have answered my questions, I hope your hypothesis is true. If we need further information, I will come back here. Thanks again ! --Consulnico (talk) 20:14, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
