@-revi: Thanks, however, in the header we can read "Valid reasons include needing a block of the underlying IP or IP range" but IPs cannot be checked? What's the meaning of that ? --SleaY (talk) 05:28, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

This could be really interesting. On Mar. 8th we checked Ray678123 and CYSHFLANKER and these two were "confirmed" according to one of our CUers. The record could be found here: zh:Wikipedia:用戶查核請求/2018/3#Ray678123_2. --Innocentius Aiolos 20:15, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
@Ruslik0:,could we check if User:Superman12345 is related to the three accounts above? He is also known using IPs to commit edit warring with User:Ray678123. In fact, his/her editing styles were similar to Ray678123 and I think that could be a reason why our CUer claimed "confirmed" even though there were no technical relation. --Innocentius Aiolos 20:31, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

As the sockmaster has basically declared that they disagree with socking policy ([6]) and will continue to create more accounts (based on user page edits), I think a sleeper check would be beneficial. Alex Shih (talk) 05:23, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

Likely Likely Ruslik (talk) 20:19, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
Hello, I am a new sysop in sqwiki and I was wondering if the "likely" symbol is as strong as "confirmed", and if it should be treated that way. I do see the behavioral evidence presented by Udha, and there are some pointers there, but the "likely" symbol will need to be clarified further for me to block the user, who has been providing overall positive contributions. As far as the comment of Udha (Udha is currently blocked for disruption in sqwiki) for administrators who supposedly "unofficially" back and encourage Hatake, that is a lie, as every single confirmed sock of Hatake has been promptly blocked in sqwiki. I invite Udha to show evidence to the contrary. --1l2l3k (talk) 21:52, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
Likely means ‘A is likely to be related with B.’ — regards, Revi 22:03, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
This should be read as very likely but there are a number of other users in the same range and the UA string is a common one. So, there is small chance that this may be a coincidence but not very large chance. If you have behavioral evidence as well, this means that the case is confirmed. Ruslik (talk) 19:19, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi Ruslik User:Zall-herr is the new sockpuppet created by User:Hatake in sqwiki. This new user seems experienced and in just a few days he has edited a lot of articles Hatake and his socks edited as well. He insults and attacks people all the time (example: Misto Treska ). I have behavioral evidence as well, this means that the case is confirmed. As one of the people attacked by him, I confirm Zall-herr is just another sockpuppet of Hatake, created just 1 day after his latest socks user:Dedalia and user:GjonBdeku were discovered and blocked. Please block him. Regards -- User:Arkivisti 19:55, 27 April 2018 (UTC)

We just provide the data as requested, and the decision whether to block that user or not is made by local administrators. We do not interfere with the local process. Thank you. — regards, Revi 07:29, 28 April 2018 (UTC)
If the administrator 1l2l3k wanted Hatake's sock Zall-Herr to be blocked he would've been blocked by now. It's been five days since Zall-Herr was confirmed as a sock, yet 1l2l3k didn't lift a finger to block him. 1l2l3k is the same admin who blocked a random anonymous IP with 1 edit for being a "sock of Udha", despite his behavior showing no correlation to mine.1 Yet somehow he cannot recognize a sock by Hatake even when he's presented with evidence, even after I successfully discovered 13 Hatake socks on my own since December while informing him (1...) first about each new sock?! 1l2l3k even has a personal list of most Hatake socks!--Udha (talk) 20:05, 29 April 2018 (UTC)
I am not the only administrator in sqwiki: there are 10 sysops, and neither one of them is "lifting a finger" to block the so-called sock, so I'm not the only one to have reservations as to whether this contributor should be blocked or not as sock. So, there are 9 other admins that so far have deemed the behavior evidence insufficient. As per Ruslik's explanation of "Likely", a confirmed sock is the one who, besides being "likely", has also some behavior evidence that is convincing. I personally find the behavioral evidence not convincing. Hatake, although had a poor behavior, was the most prolific contributor of sqwiki, with much original research, as well as references, brought to the Albanian wikipedia. As a result he touched thousands of articles. It is very easy to find someone who has edited on Hatake's articles and block them. Hec, I can block myself as a Hatake sock, because I have edited in many of Hatake's articles. Hatake was blocked, based on my recommendation, as a disruptive user. Udha was also banned with community vote from interacting with Hatake, because he was continuously baiting and harassing Hatake. Eventually Hatake was perm-blocked because of continuous improper language and behavior. Zall-herr does not have any similarity in language, behavior or other, more subtle forms of communication with Hatake. Hatake spoke in very heavy Shkoder dialect, and the articles suffered from it. Zall-herr has a completely different language in both personal communication and article writing style. I don't feel that there is any sufficient behavioral evidence to be sufficient to block the contributor. Other sysops, if they disagree with me, they can block him. I won't, for now. Zall-herr has been a positive contributor, and does NOT remind me of Hatake at all. --1l2l3k (talk) 14:07, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
