[1], [2] We suspect to this users (E.J.HAM, Idh0854, Hyolee2) are same person. So I request user Idh0854 and Hyolee2 to checking together. Hyolee2 is already blocked in korean wikipedia. --클레이모어208 (talk) 15:23, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
LOL. Hi, Unypoly. That is your opinion, not the community. Don't use We :) What a great humor. Please, Come back to earth. (Plus, your account is created 15:14, 2 October 2012 and your comment is created 15:23, 2 October 2012. Great xD) --Sotiale (talk) 21:42, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

I've just checked and the following users are  Confirmed :
  • Group 1
    • 태양일이삼사
    • 태양1234
    • Taeyang1234
  • Group 2
    • Hhun99
    • 동혀니
  • Doroamitabul may be Possible possibly related to some other users, but nothing sure so I prefer not to provide a list.
  • E.J.HAM is Unrelated Unrelated to other users from a CU point of view.
We've also checked 클레이모어208 and we don't have enough data to conclude if he's really part of one of these groups or not. Could you please provide a list of known sockpuppets of Unipoly ? (especially past checkuser requests performed on him). It would be helpful to continue to investigate, especially because it seems to be a long-term vandal for the Korean Wikipedia. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 11:06, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
Oh, Thanks so much. His action started 2008, and even kowiki have related consensus :) I will provide his account list. --Sotiale (talk) 11:30, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
See the w:ko:사용자:Hyolee2/주시하고 있는 사용자의 과거 기록/장기/Unypoly#과거 대처 (2008 ~ 2009). However, Unypoly (Block; since 2006) is skilled in, dodge the IP addresses, use the IP addresses of many PC Rooms in Seoul. So, we don't gather he's Infomation because of it's pointless. Thank you. --Idh0854 (talk) 02:48, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Check using of this user get approve on ko. wikipedia. But omitted Hyolee2's account, so haven't found E.J.HAM is sockpuppet[7] Steward should check with hyolee2's account and Idh0854.

Comment Comment To stewards. related consensus exist @kowiki and user Sotiale disturb korean wikipedia by relating innocent user to unypoly. Such as wikipedia:ko:사용자토론:태양일이삼사. --태양일이삼사 (talk) 10:16, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
[Steward requests/Checkuser/2012-10#Doroamitabul@kowiki] See this. 클레이모어208 maybe someones sockpuppet. but there are no evidence he is unypoly. I think 클레이모어208 is others sockpuppet. 클레이모어 is animation and games name. It doesnot like unypoly. unypoly does not like this part at korean wikipedia seems by his editing. --태양일이삼사 (talk) 10:27, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure a checkuser investigation is necessary to determine that these are pattern spambots, but it might come in handy. I've added the pattern to the title blacklist. Please lock them anyway. Thanks, Mathonius (talk) 02:59, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

Ninho @el.wikipedia

But what are exactly the things why we should check? What were the edits of the anonymous users? What did they/he say on his userpage? Both accounts were never blocked and it's his own userpage. And Ninho was a respected user I guess. Otherwise I'd say  It looks like a duck to me (without having checked it). Trijnsteltalk 21:01, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
The anonymous was just copying the user page of admin Ttzavaras and was saying he was an admin himself. Ninho was a 2-day old user in greek wikipedia. I agree with you (about the duck), but this has got to end. The only thing we need is a steward to confirm us. Thanks, --Το αλλήθωρο οπόσουμ (talk) 21:17, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Stewards need more information and reason than a suspicion, links to evidentiary diffs would be better (it states above ... Be specific in your reasons.
