Yes check.svg Done, For Picksve, 反赤共復民國, Topsun888, Choasppp, Cynthia liu123 the CU evidence is inconclusive. All other accounts confirmed. No other unlocked sleeping account. Linedwell [talk] 19:14, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks User:Linedwell. Reported back.--Cohaf (talk) 19:21, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
@Cohaf: No problem. I checked but I can't link it to any of the previous accounts. Regards, Linedwell [talk] 19:32, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
@Linedwell:. Thanks much!--Cohaf (talk) 19:33, 5 January 2019 (UTC)



X mark.svg Not done Do not see any reason for checkuser. If an account misbehave, just block it. Ruslik (talk) 19:22, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Umm...Ruslik...Is there some reason to perform a CU other than someone abusively and obviously using multiple accounts? GMGtalk 01:55, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Haled R@ro.wikipedia

X mark.svg Not done - no check needed here. That account hasn't edited in nearly a month, so checking it would not assist in preventing any abuse. – Ajraddatz (talk) 16:07, 10 January 2019 (UTC)

MTR 558391@zh.wikipedia

  • Comment Comment. No local consensus to check, they have clear editorial disputes with the rest and send the 2 to zhwiki AIV but was declined and ask to engage in village pump discussion. However, they don't wish to engage in meaningful discussion at village pump and wow, here they are. Forumshopping indeed.--Cohaf (talk) 15:26, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment Comment No, we have local consensus to chack because some administrators in zh RFCUHAM agree to check due to their editing habit are similar and we are already discussed in the disscussion page. Iswjy1mcb (talk) 22:57, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
    • Comment Comment@Iswjy1mcb:. May I understand which zhwiki administrator agreed to the check? And may I know what consensus there are. In addition, it'll be wise to use the preview button rather than editing a sentence 10 times. Best Regards,--Cohaf (talk) 23:55, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
      • Let me make this clear: No administrators were involved in local discussion, and forum shopping is not allowed at Meta. Your request is likely to be rejected. --Super Wang on zhwiki (Share your opinions) 00:27, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
    • @Cohaf: Sanmosa agreed to check Iswjy1mcb (talk) 02:50, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
      • Sanmosa is NOT an administrator.--Cohaf (talk) 02:53, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
      • Comment Comment @Cohaf: It is suspected that MTR 558391 is used for vandalism and Shek Ming Fai for normal editing, checking for sleepers is needed. It looks like a duck to meIswjy1mcb (talk) 03:15, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
        • My goodness. You reported to AIV and an administrator told you to start a discussion at Village Pump and determined it as a content dispute but you didn't. And now you are at meta saying the same. What grounds are there for a sleepers check? I will strongly encourage you to drop the stick before I push for sanctions for forumshopping at zhwiki. If you want the check, fine go ahead, but I request the steward to check this account also to make sure it isn't a good hand bad hand account and they seems to have very similar interests to the above 2 as well as editing tendencies. --Cohaf (talk) 03:29, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
        • Why on earth are you so stubborn, Iswjy1mcb? Stewards will not check until a local consensus comes into being. Why not follow administrator's advice? Do you think you are superior to admins or what?! Stop your rudeness. --Super Wang on zhwiki (Share your opinions) 09:14, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Could a steward or meta admin close this request as premature and lacking consensus from local discussion? Alex Shih (talk) 09:38, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
    • @Alex Shih:. I would rather the closing reason being invalid, forum shopping, SNOW and disruptive checking. But yes, this needs to be closed by a steward as soon as possible. I'm not sure whether a meta admin could do it or not.--Cohaf (talk) 13:53, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
  • X mark.svg Not done - checkuser isn't a weapon to use against the other side of a content dispute. – Ajraddatz (talk) 16:05, 10 January 2019 (UTC)


  • @Bbb23: as enwiki CU who conducted the check that this is a crosswiki issue. Possibly commons also, see SUL of accounts.--Cohaf (talk) 10:10, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
Well, even if it is not zhwiki, local discussion is always preferred since we are not expert on all the local projects and your fellow editors might be able to detect new CU target. Will do in few minutes after I am done with other stuff. — regards, Revi 12:43, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
I duck blocked all and had discussed this case with community members offline so I think we did all we could here. The rest really require a CU to ensure all is taken care off. If there is a range, do feel free to do a checkuser block. Thanks.--Cohaf (talk) 13:18, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
  • I request that a CU block should be imposed at the same time because of Autoblock #31 concering User:AndyUSWCAX. Since he has a history of copyright violation on zhwikiversity, I would argue thet it is necessary. --Mend My Way 05:48, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
    • Now my fellow sysop had concurred a check is necessary, I hope we can have the results soon. Thanks!--Cohaf (talk) 06:34, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done - all three accounts are  Confirmed, no sleepers. – Ajraddatz (talk) 03:11, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz:. Thanks, is there any range to be blocked?.--Cohaf (talk) 03:15, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
At this stage I think the account blocks should cover it. There has been no further abuse since the request was filed. – Ajraddatz (talk) 03:59, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: Thanks so much, appreciate your help for this. Will go through the accounts to see any SRG requests need to be filled or not. Thanks anyway --Cohaf (talk) 04:16, 14 January 2019 (UTC)


Yes check.svg Done there is inconclusive technical evidence. Please use behavioural evidence to evaluate next steps. – Ajraddatz (talk) 03:58, 14 January 2019 (UTC)


 Confirmed. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 18:42, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks MarcoAurelio. Reported Back.--Cohaf (talk) 18:48, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

  • I'd throw swear words at you if not for urbanity's sake. This is a repetitive request. --Super Wang on zhwiki (Share your opinions) 01:13, 11 January 2019 (UTC)
  • I would like to find out whether MTR 553891 is used for vandalism and Shek Ming Fai for normal editing or not due to frequent editing on such articles.  It looks like a duck to me Iswjy1mcb (talk) 01:54, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

Comment Anonymous Comment: Have you to look for further evidence? You should mean discussion here which has occured at appropiate section below: see Cross-wiki LTA vandal for understanding such situation. 16:01, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
@Pafsanias: Indeed for some purposes. Does really the accounts are related to BAICAN XXX? If they are same person, please provide additional consensus details as to convince stewards to assist check for others, otherwise this CU action wouldn't be so accurate for Community's privacy rule. 17:32, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
BAICAN_XXX is Stale. Wikiobai, Centurrion and ValydinDD are  Confirmed to be the same user. Additional socks are Thingorest, BAICAN X, Paltini, Successore and Grreuglisse. Ruslik (talk) 20:54, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
Thank you so much, Ruslik, for your useful information. However, the account BAICAN XXX has been blocked globally by MarcoAurelio on December 30, 2018. The last contributions seem to be those of December 28 (some other edits have been deleted afterwards). It is hard to believe that this account appears to be stale. Sorry to insist, but for us it is very important to clarify the relation between the main sockpuppeteer and the newer sockpuppets. --Pafsanias (talk) 23:23, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
The last edit on rowiki was on 14 April 2014. Ruslik (talk) 20:45, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
I see. You probably mean that you cannot carry out any crosswiki checking. Let me put it a little bit differently, then. BAICAN XXX is globally locked as of December 30, 2018, for crosswiki vandalism. Nevertheless, we have strong reasons to believe that the edits made by User:Thingorest on Wikidata belong to the same person, therefore representing an evasion of the global lock. Am I wrong? May I ask for a check concerning those two accounts (BAICAN XXX and Thingorest) on that particular Wikimedia project? Should I submit a separate request? Thank you once again for your kind help. --Pafsanias (talk) 21:26, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Comment Comment in Response to @Pafsanias: If it is possible, the meaning of reference results as per Ruslik0 might have been revealed. I think it not need second check. Please leave it in order to see benefits of both cross-wiki checking and such actions as well; also you known claim what you requested evidence than other option did you agree. It so never forget to mention that response advice. 17:39, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
 Confirmed on roa-rupwiki. Ruslik (talk) 20:32, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
Thank you!--Mihai P. (talk) 21:15, 19 January 2019 (UTC)


@Alex Shih: Is it related to a long-term vandal? RadiX 01:02, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
@RadiX: I don't think that was suspected, but I wouldn't be surprised if the findings have some overlap with some zhwiki LTA? Pinging original filer Techyan for more input. Alex Shih (talk) 01:08, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Nope. It isn't a LTA case. Just a normal CU @RadiX and Alex Shih:.--Cohaf (talk) 03:21, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
 It looks like a duck to me. I think that may not warrant a check. Should you have more information on this, please feel free to add it. RadiX 04:10, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
@RadiX:. Sorry I'm not into this case and now read the files, the filter, a local sysop feels it's duckable, I also concur with this assessment. The local sysop just wish to do a sleeper check. No comment on that per say.--Cohaf (talk) 04:30, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Ok then. I think they can just be blocked as vandalism only accounts. File another CU request in case a sleeper check is needed. Thanks, RadiX 02:11, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
@RadiX:Noted with thanks.--Cohaf (talk) 02:13, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

  • RadiX,HKGSINSINLHR relationship on list of users?--MCC214#aut viam inveniam aut faciam 08:44, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
    • Mr./Mrs. MCC214, You behaviour had made me wonder if you have any basic communication ability in English...
    • Dear stewards, I wonder if User:HKGSINSINLHR has any technical relation to above 2 groups because their contribution seems similar to Dragon17cc, and it seems that this account had been left forgotten during the check. --云间守望 15:16, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
  • @WQL: Sorry, my fault. It is very Likely Likely that HKGSINSINLHR and group 1 are related. RadiX 03:51, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
    • @RadiX:Noted and report back.--Cohaf (talk) 03:53, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
    • Thanks to RadiX for doing the check. --云间守望 04:26, 22 January 2019 (UTC)


Could you please explain what is the grounds for checking? Vandalism? (only two of the listed accounts are currently blocked) Is there any concerns about bad-faith editing? Is there evidence that they are related to a long-term abuser? RadiX 02:58, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

  • @RadiX: Just replying for the LTA part, nope. --Cohaf (talk) 03:22, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
  • RadiX, this user is not listed on zh:WP:LTA at this time. However, because they had done disruputive edits (per FrankD666, one of the targets once claimed himself to be a sysop, patroller and rollbacker for no reason), since they all claimed that they comes from Malaysia, putting his Youtube channel links on user pages. Ngjunkaiha and Sadakohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh all claims that his name is Ng Jun-kai(黄浚凯) or including his name into usernames, so I think it worth a look, same to Cohaf. --云间守望 15:25, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

Discussion on Chinese Wikipedia is de facto must have (and cannot be None) unless you have a good reason not to. I don't see a good reason not to require it. Please discuss it on zh:WP:RFCUHAM and get back to us after then. — regards, Revi 19:16, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
@-revi:Isn't self requested CU not allowed no matter what, the requestor is basically requesting to do a CU on themselves, the 2nd account was indef blocked locally as a sock to the 1st account which is currently just serve 1 week sock block. --Cohaf (talk) 01:53, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
Global CheckUser policy doesn't explicitly prohibit this practice (It says "some wikis" might allow it), but I usually don't do this kind of self-requested checks, as the policy says, it is too prone to abuse. — regards, Revi 08:43, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
@-revi:According to zhwiki w:zh:WP:CUP



Some projects allow users to carry out self checks to prove innocence if there are accused of socking, but normally this is seen as DE

. 2 points, you are the steward so you decide whether is this disruption or not, and can you give us your assessment. 2nd, as given in the link below, the 2 accounts are confirmed in a CU earlier this month by MarcoAurelio. Do we have to continue this? Thanks much! Best Regards,--Cohaf (talk) 09:14, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
