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.
  1. 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.
  1. Make sure there are no local checkusers or policies.
  2. 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.

@ValJor: Do you have a list of recent confirmed sockpuppets so, in case we accept this request, we can compare? Best regards. —MarcoAurelio 11:33, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
Not recent, no. The last time he attacked pt.wikt was in 2013

Could you please elaborate why you think Khangul is behind this? I see that many other people are also opposing the last vote. Remember that Fishing CheckUser is not for fishing. —MarcoAurelio 22:47, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
he (Asif/Watanwal) is using the same language in his comments as Khangul used in other discussions.-- 00:34, 30 August 2015 (UTC)


Kruusamägi Since the user has 50k edits and is a sysop on etwiki, could you notify the local community (village pump, sysops' noticeboard, etc.) of your request? Elfix 20:39, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
Technically, thous comments in question are already in the village pump. I'd make the question there, even thou I don't see this as a very suitable place, as that might fuel thous nasty comments, that should not be there in the first place. Kruusamägi (talk) 21:13, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
Thank you. We just need some community review on this. We usually don't check well-established users without a good reason. Elfix 07:24, 31 August 2015 (UTC) Note: independent of the validity of your SRCU, I have added the IP in the request. Elfix 08:20, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
User decided to take a wikibreak. So I guess that there is no need to go one with that. Kruusamägi (talk) 18:46, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
