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).

Μαυρο Μαργαριταρι@el.wikipedia[edit]


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)
@MarcoAurelio: any new thing on this request? --Alaa :)..! 12:39, 2 May 2018 (UTC)
I don't handle SRCU requests nowadays. None of the accounts provided above have any IP data we can query as it's expired, as I said above though. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:54, 2 May 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)

Glucken has insult other users. For example he/she has say "go to a psychiatric hospital psycho. There will come cops and you will run to hide. Go away moron with your stubid ideas." diff. Propagandise and mocks against Christians, and whosoever who does not agree agree with him/her he/she calls him mockingly "far-right" while he offenced because i called a wikipedian "left"! Also, he changes my words and wants from admins to block me. Do you want diffs? To concluse, you, the stewards are free to search whatever and anything from me. Ah and User:Glucken123 make and a request for User:Μαντίνγκο and you. As you say you aren't him then why to fear?--Ελλ (talk) 15:57, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

Ελλ, who is currently banned from the Greek Wikipedia, had multiple chances and opportunities to comply to the rules and despite the many warnings from administrators, he kept vandalising and also abusing other users by verbally assaulting or in some cases threatening them. Another well-used tactic that can be seen in his above-mentioned response, is the rhetoric of reverse accusation. A person (in this case me) who has expressed a very specific concern about him being a sock puppet, is unfairly targeted with random accusations (e.g me being a sock puppet). I consider this to be an attempt to turn the spotlight on unimportant issues. This is another example of breaching the rules, as from what I understand this section is not a vote or debate, but only a platform to report misbehaviour within the whole community. Furthermore, his constant attempts to accuse other users of anti-democratic or anti-christian tactics is simply flawed. What he really does is remove validated content from pages that he considers to be either anti-christian or against his own beliefs (that is another breach of POV). If you have any doubts about this, a look at his bans will immediately convince you. To address the ridiculous accusations about me being a sock puppet, he previously expressed a number of concerns regarding my intentions. Of course, I have directed him to this page in case he wanted to investigate this - he didn't and laughed off my suggestions. Hence, his response above is not only a clear breach of rules, but also an unnecessary distraction from the true issue regarding his activity. If an administrator could perform the checkuser, it would be greatly appreciated. In case you need me to provide any other information, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Dear Ruslik and Revi, do I need to provide more information for the check? Hope I am not missing something, thanks. Glucken123 (talk) 12:33, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

Glucken123 who continually attacks Christians? Oh yeah "Christiantaliban" here the diff. "You didn't borried be banned all time? diff. Oh yeah ok. Do you, stewards, want other diffs for his attacks, Christian-phobe and patriophobe delusions? Ah who is currently banned from the Greek Wikipedia for three days? Here his block log, compare my own and my his own log.--Ελλ (talk) 17:12, 19 May 2018 (UTC)

And the irony is that he wants my bans, like here, (reasons; judicial threats, personal attacks, slanders and other related fairy tales) and when the administrators ban him, after his attacks, he says "I consider abusive and unfair three days blocking unnecessarily." and complains like here. Any other examples? I have so many of them. Really why did you odd my first comment? [8] --Ελλ (talk) 17:27, 19 May 2018 (UTC)


Good to see that after my last comment here you reflected about some of your mistakes and double standards and decided to finally report user:Cinephile-al properly. The report comes a little late as you already blocked some users above under the pretext of being "socks" of Cinephile-al (1, and that with NO confirmation, and on top of that you also asked the community on Albanian Wikipedia to vote on permanently blocking @Cinephile-al:. One of the reasons you gave there is that after being banned he socked with new accounts and IPs, vandalizing and insulting. Again you had no confirmation for your claims, yet you asked the community to block him permanently. This happened after he criticized you here for your abuses. On the other hand you still refuse to block a confirmed sockpuppet of Hatake, which is one of the accusations user:Cinephile-al made against you.--Udha (talk) 14:34, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
Ok, I'm not going to comment here further as this seems to be improper. I'm sorry.--Udha (talk) 15:02, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
Not doing the check but  No comment with respect to IP address(es). — regards, Revi 16:13, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
