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).

  • In short, the accounts are duck blocked as per socks of LTA. Just wanting a CU confirmation as well as a sleeper check given the master is prolifically creating socks daily, let us put all the socks back into the wardrobe. --Cohaf (talk) 17:48, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Yes check.svg Done the checkuser results are Inconclusive Inconclusive. Please base your blocking decisions on behavioural evidence. – Ajraddatz (talk) 19:29, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Thanks Ajraddatz,all are duck blocked before this request, reported back, nothing else to do here.--Cohaf (talk) 23:52, 17 November 2018 (UTC)


User:Iskenderije above is a sock as a checkuser here already confirmed. See above. I reported him as usual, so he might be a bit angry and wants to retaliate by making personal attacks. As for this particular request, it seems that user:Amarakuja has copy-pasted it from previous troll requests posted on this page by troll users. user:Amarakuja was blocked on SQwiki for being a sock see here and shouldn't be taken serious. Regards!--Udha (talk) 22:03, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
User:Udha just logged in with another sock User:Udha1 turning upside down the whole SQwiki with obvious biased charged without any common sense behind all this, turning SQwiki into a battleground where revenge and petty approach are the only criteria. -- 10:58, 5 November 2018 (UTC)


  • @Cohaf:I think you are referring to the talk page at your ZH Wikipedia account, so I fixed the link for you. - まっすろな未来 (talk) 09:08, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
