  • Comment Comment. None of these registered users have been blocked on any Wikimedia project so far. I am wondering what we should do here, but I can't think of anything else apart from blocking three proxy IP ranges or so. Furthermore, I see no grounds for checking the aforementioned IP ranges against a particular user atm. RadiX 21:42, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
    I didn't think that one of the prior conditions for a request was that one or more of the accounts must have been blocked in a wiki. I'm requiring a check to verify that they have to be: the edits I've shown (some of the which were unequivocally inappropriate or disruptive, the others at least useless) were identical edited by proxies, accounts and IP ranges from Northern Italy; proxies and socks are also forbidden in this project; if a steward verifies the connection among each others, it'll be the prove that one user is the vandal behind all this. No need to declare publicly which single IPs have been used by each single account: if just each account have been using one or more of these IP ranges (both proxies and normal, which are related to each others because of their identical edits), then this will be a long term abuse, so that not just proxies but also accounts (socks) and the IP ranges used by the socks will be blocked, am I right?

    Using sockpuppets is not forbidden, abusing them is. But currently I see no proof for such abuse. Or am I missing something? Trijnsteltalk 01:50, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
    @Trijnstel: I do know that "abusing", not "using", sockpuppets is forbidden. The thing I don't know is which one of these legitimate uses was done of the listed sockpuppets. All I see is that Baka Líte, Myeuurn and Onpuryvgr were used in different wikis to restore the same edits made by proxies (see here, or here and here, or here and here, or here) and, "coincidentally", these socks were created after some of these proxies were blocked in some wikis and their edits reverted... Connect the dots. The sockmaster in these cases stopped using proxies and started using sockpuppets, in order not to be identified. Is this a legitimate use of sockpuppets? I hope I didn't miss anything. By the way, sockpuppets aside, no use of open proxies is allowed, at all. On my experience, usually, when a user edits from a proxy which is recognised as proxy by a sysop, the IP or IP range he's used is immediately blocked in the whole project, and the eventual accounts which made similar edits from that proxy are blocked "with an expiration time of indefinite", and their edits reverted. Can you tell me how is it possible, after all the proves I've brought here during the last month, that none of these actions has been taken yet, and it also seems to me that sysops are even looking for loopholes to avoid blocking this cross-wiki vandal? Is there something I don't know but sysops do know about this story? Jatharinan (talk) 9:11, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
    I am wondering whether these accounts have been used abusively on local projects. The user mentioned at my talk page that local checkusers have managed to draw some conclusion based on it, but I still see no evidence of that. @Jatharinan: Would you please provide us with the necessary information? (links and/or diffs for local CU results). Thanks. RadiX 01:58, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
    I will. First, read my reply to Trijnstel just over here. After that, I'll give you all the information you need. Jatharinan (talk) 9:11, 2 February 2018 (UTC) P.S. I have absolutely NO idea why my account was blocked by an Italian sysop, he must have thought I was another person who vandalised Italian wiki with an IP belonging to my range.

X mark.svg Not done We do not match accounts to IP addresses. Ruslik (talk) 18:24, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: How can you verify that IPs are actually connected to a user account? If not, can you suggest how to stop such abuse? --Horus (talk) 11:06, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
@Horus: Can't you create abuse filters and/or block IP ranges? Trijnsteltalk 01:51, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the idea. --Horus (talk) 04:36, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

@Kusurija:: you cannot alter others' requests. If you want to add more names you can make a new request or add more names with another template. I trust Martin Urbanec's requests while I don't second requests from involved parties like you. Because of your falsification of Martin Urbanec request I performed two useless checks.
Unrelated Unrelated but I'll share with Martin Urbanec my findings.
