@Sotiale: Some local admins couldn't distinguish X43 from 114.27, because they follow similar editing patterns and share similar accounts names, so this round of check can be of great importance, clearing ambiguous local block reasons once and for all. --Super Wang hates PC You hate, too? 09:06, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Thank you. I realized the "once and for all" part was hot-headed, but the request itself is nothing personal. After all, sock usage in zhwiki has always been complicated. --Super Wang hates PC You hate, too? 10:44, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

@Croxyz, Koreanovsky, and Ivi104:. Ok, but Lordluka99 isn't blocked, no doble voting with sockpuppet or (apparently) other violation. The scope of this request is, imho, very similar to fishing. We await other opinions from other stewards… --Wim b 18:11, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
@Wim b: Lordluka99 isn't blocked yet, we wanted checkuser confirmation so the ban would be official, and couldn't be attributed to hunches and speculations from his point of view. The users behaviour on-wiki and off-wiki are too similar to dismiss, with the added proof of him using his alt-account to share sensitive information that was shared with his primary account alone. Using alt-accounts for badmouthing others and ill-speaking should not be allowed. Please proceed with the CU request, so we can put a stop to such behaviour. The CU rules clearly state: Checks are inappropriate unless there is evidence suggesting abusive sock-puppetry. His behaviour is clearly abusive, and he is using an sock-account to carry out such behaviour. --Ivi104 (talk) 21:38, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

@Ivi104, Croxyz, and Koreanovsky: In summary, does it mean that they are editing the same page using a different account without revealing the account, insulting another user with one account, and doing normal editing with the other account? Could you please tell me if what I said is correct and what other abuses are there? --Sotiale (talk) 02:18, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

@Wim b: The summary is correct. Additional abuses: he is insulting multiple users (not just one), refusing to admit the second account is his even when presented with the evidence above, and such behaviour is causing disruptions in our normal work. --Ivi104 (talk) 02:33, 15 October 2020 (UTC)
Erm.. although I am not Wim b and you pinged them too, I will handle this soon. Ivi104, If you want Wim b, not me, to process it, please tell me. --Sotiale (talk) 02:42, 15 October 2020 (UTC)

Minh Châu Trần@vi.wikipedia

@Trần Nguyễn Minh Huy: Hello. The reason it is mandatory to have at least 2 checkusers is to allow each other to monitor and check. So another checkuser can proceed with an investigation if the checkuser thinks it has a good basis. If this investigation should be carried out in meta, we need at least a special reason to conduct the investigation even if there is a local checkuser, or consensus on local wiki. It is difficult to be considered COI just by having 2 checkusers. Could you elaborate on why they become COI or take the relevant steps? Thank you. --Sotiale (talk) 06:06, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
Hello Sotiale, in fact we only have 1 local CU currently active (DHN), the other CU (Mxn) inactive for almost 1 year and he never deal any tasks related to CU requests uptill now. Mxn is also a target of this CU request, and DHN refused to use his tool regarding COI, because, as his statement with rough translation: In the list of accounts you require to CU, there are CUs, bureaucrats, and sysops. Since I am also an bureaucrat and CU, my implementation of this request may also be considered unfair (due to a conflict of interest). Furthermore, if the result is deterministic, I have no right to remove the rights of related accounts. He suggested us to make a request on Meta instead (Do đó, yêu cầu này nên được đưa lên Meta cho các Stewards thực hiện.).
For the background of this case: someone accused that interface-admins group make sockpupet accounts for "pass the buck" multiple community consensus related to RfPs. The proof are: those sockpupets account can view and check the fuction that only interface-admins have rights to use (undelete a user skin). We're considering this problem make extremely bad effects to morales of related users, not to say that it may violated the security policy of interface-admins group (which required 2FA). In the discussion, our community gained consensus about need to perform a CU act right away, but our sole CU (in fact) refused per COI as I presented above. --minhhuy (talk) 06:24, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Also please note that in the local dicussion, we are requesting two different groups for CU.

@Rupert loup: Hi. We cannot confirm the relationship between IP and account. Could you explain the correlation between Soapbox Sam and TVEBOR in more detail? Making it clear can help with this investigation. Thank you. --Sotiale (talk) 05:53, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale: Just checking because the succesive edits, I wanted to verify if it was a log out. The IPs and TVEBOR belong to a banned editor from Australia. Rupert loup (talk) 06:11, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
@Rupert loup: According to privacy policy, it is not possible to verify the relationship between IP and account. Therefore, what is currently possible is an account-to-account investigation. Please explain me in detail about the relationship between Soapbox Sam and TVEBOR by presenting a link and editing pattern. --Sotiale (talk) 06:16, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale: They have the same interest in politics, both are interested in US Conservative and Libertarian politics. Soapbox started to be most active right after 2001:8003:4000:0:0:0:0:0/35 and TVEBOR were banned for sockpuppetry. Rupert loup (talk) 06:33, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
@Rupert loup: Hello. I've reviewed above accounts, and TVEBOR is too old and there will be no data left even if I investigate. So even if I accept your request, I will be unable to confirm anything. Do you know any other suspicious accounts? Or is there any evidence that IP editing is an overt abuse? --Sotiale (talk) 07:36, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale: The IPs 2001:8003:4000:0:0:0:0:0/35 is harassing me, it has been harassing me during a year now. The other IPs have the same location. Rupert loup (talk) 15:54, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
I'm recieving harassment right now and an admin have block me for revert the block evasion of TVEBOR, I reported it here, although I'm not sure if that the correct place. I want to make sure that this Soapbox is not part of it. Rupert loup (talk) 17:45, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Just wondering should hrwp CU requests be subjected to a local discussion like zhwp ones? These checks are clearly premature. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:15, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
I think that's quite good idea but nowadays I don't handle SRCU so if Sotiale wants to ask hrwiki to do same, it's up to his discretion :) — regards, Revi 17:57, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, it's up to Sotiale discretion. Good to standardize procedures for all wikis just to be fair as these hr checks seems premature which is the reason given by stewards to require zh to have a local discussion. Just my 2 cents worth, pardon if inappropriate. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 18:16, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
I like the idea — as in "Discussion required unless uncontroversial (spambot, LTA, etc - can be strengthened if making low-quality submissions)". That would require stewards discussion tho. Will bring up later. — regards, Revi 20:07, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
There was a lengthy discussion about that actually that went the other way to not require consensus from a wiki as a hard requirement. I don't remember where it was (early to mid-2015 though). What concerns me when consensus is required is that the request for CU turns into a popularity vote rather than an objective determination whether the request is based on local policy as well as the privacy / CU policies. That all being said, hrwiki is a bit notorious right now, to say the least, so I would definitely think that treating them with extra scrutiny is justifiable. --Rschen7754 05:55, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done The requester is not providing evidence, so close the request. If you wish to request again, please do so with good reason/evidence. And I haven't received a lot of requests from hrwiki yet, and considering some factors, it doesn't seem like such a condition is needed yet. If I think I need such a condition, I'll suggest it to hrwiki. --Sotiale (talk) 04:49, 21 October 2020 (UTC)

@Yining Chen: I'm not sure how it is related to Nicoleyeez's promise not to use sockpuppets and Yushifan0819's investigation. Did Nicoleyeez say it had nothing to do with Yushifan0819? --Sotiale (talk) 13:15, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale: Nicoleyeez has been blocked because he/she used the sockpuppet (User:Bewaterrr). Then Nicoleyeez wanted to be unblocked, so he/she promised that he/she would not use sockpuppet again. But some users think that Nicoleyees may be the sockpuppet of Yushifan0819. --Yining Chen (Talk) 13:24, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
@Yining Chen: What I'm curious about is whether Nicoleyeez or Yushifan0819 claimed to each other that they weren't their accounts. Did Yushifan0819 explicitly claim that they did not use another account in Yushifan0819's block review? --Sotiale (talk) 13:30, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale:The answer is YES. Yu denied using a sock account and was unblocked by our local sysop AT. See zh:User_talk:Yushifan0819#2020年10月. --Super Wang hates PC You hate, too? 13:34, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
OK, thank you for the answer, Yining Chen and Super Wang. --Sotiale (talk) 13:56, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale and Yining Chen: Yining may have misunderstood something.
Nicoleyeez was first reported by ドラえ (Dorae)'s sockpuppet, Sclssynt, to our local administrator, 蟲蟲飛, that Nico was a sockpuppet of Yushifan0819, which led to a permanent block for Nico and a two-week block for Yushi. Yushi got unblocked for a previous CU on them and Ball2, another user that was reported by Dorae's sock, and the results proved Yushi innocent, but Nico was never unblocked.
Later, Nico evaded the block by creating Bewaterrr, which was found in #使用@zh.wikipedia. Bewaterrr admitted that they were Nico and was only trying to get Dorae to stop abusing reports (thus requesting a CU for Dorae and Scl). Bewaterrr was then blocked indefinitely, and I suggested them to return to their main account (Nicoleyeez) to properly file an appeal.
The sole block record on Nico's account was being a sock of Yushi, which we suspect that was another abusive report by Dorae. With Nico's promise on not abusing socks, the only remaining thing to check is whether Nico and Yushi are in fact related accounts. If not, Nico may have their appeal accepted and get a shorter block period or a direct unblock.
One thing that we noticed is that in a previous CU report, Bewaterrr is only found to be related to Nico, and no other accounts are listed with the two. We are unsure whether this actually indicates that Nico is in fact not related to Yushi as per previous CU records. Therefore, would Sotiale mind to tell us whether the above assumption is valid, or whether another check would be required to verify that Nico and Yushi are unrelated.

@LuciferianThomas: Thanks for explanation. I think you can refer to this for the answer to your question. What appeared in my investigation means that they are very likely to have used sockpuppets, but not appearing cannot mean innocent. And this also depends on whether they use VPN/OP or regular IPs. --Sotiale (talk) 13:56, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

I have forwarded the results to the local discussions. Thank you for your help today. LuciferianThomasTalk 14:03, 25 October 2020 (UTC)


@LClightcat: Hello. There seems to have been opposition in the local discussion, please explain why they objected and what happened afterwards. Thank you. --Sotiale (talk) 03:53, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale:Hello.Because this discussion was rejected due to insufficient evidence, but after supplement, I think it can be transferred. The objector thinks that it is not allowed to apply for verification on behalf of others. Maybe I am a bit rash. Please handle another verification request first. Thank you!LClightcat Talk 04:00, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
Hello @Sotiale. I am here to help explain the situation of the local discussion and hope to help you decide whether or not to proceed on this report.
Bewaterrr (the user checked in the other report), requested Jasonloi1997 to help submit this CheckUser report. ドラえ, one of the users listed in this CU report, attempted to decline the report, but was turned down by Streetdeck due to conflicts of interests. The report was then declined by Super Wang for insufficient evidence and that he thought the report was used to reolve edit conflicts. Bewaterrr then responded to the rejection of the report in Jasonloi1997's user talk page with some additional evidence and information, which I forwarded to the local discussion page. LClightcat found the new information seemingly sufficient to initiate the CU report, thus forwarded the report to here.
I hope the above explanation is sufficient for your further decisions and actions on this report. LuciferianThomasTalk 05:33, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
  • @Sotiale: The local discussion is sufficient and the evidence has been submitted. The only objector is the inspected. Please check the user. Thank you.--LClightcat Talk 07:21, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

From a technical point of view. you can think of the past, Group 2. Unlike back then, I was able to get clearer data about Group 1 of this request. But in the case of Possible Possible, their editing pattern must be analyzed locally before deciding. --Sotiale (talk) 10:02, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for your help. I will forward the message to the local discussion. LuciferianThomasTalk 10:02, 25 October 2020 (UTC)


@LClightcat: Hi. Could you briefly explain the discussion on local? And the two accounts above(Joey Yung, Jasonloi1997) seem to be quite experienced users, has there been enough discussion? Thank you for your answer. --Sotiale (talk) 03:57, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale:In the local discussion, some people thought that bewaterr asked Jasonloi1997 to help report without any reason, but Jasonloi1997 accepted the request. Moreover, both editors had edited the same item and thought that it was necessary to check users and check sleepers.LClightcat Talk 04:07, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
  • In addition, Jasonloi1997, the user who was requested to check, supported the check.LClightcat Talk 04:19, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

  • @Sotiale:Hi Sotiale. Local community would like to know if there is no other accounts in Group 2? Thank you. Itcfangye (talk) 12:51, 25 October 2020 (UTC)
@Itcfangye: Unless I specifically state that the investigation has not been completed, any investigation that can be done with respect to the account under investigation has been completed once. The only exception is VPN, in which case I must have the account presented so I can fully investigate them. This is because VPNs sometimes automatically switch servers. So, if you have another suspicious account(not investigated) with good reason and if I declared that they used VPN, you can request their investigation again. --Sotiale (talk) 13:04, 25 October 2020 (UTC)

Inconclusive Inconclusive: Same ISP in 3 different ranges (2 range for Who-Sells-Bricks and 1 for CU71), Same browser and operative system (CU71 has updated that). But, by the last Who-Sells-Bricks's edit and the first of CU71 was passed ~2 months. Imho the ISP, browser and OS are too commons, in this case only a behavior's analysis can confirm that this 2 users are the same person

Due to recent chaotic situation on local discussion page, this request was delayed a few days. These are LTA zh:WP:D17C's puppets blocked locally since last month's check. Please compare them to this round of check, and tell us if they used proxy or VPN. Lastly, we'd like stewards to globally block their IP bands per local CU policy zh:WP:CUP#1.

  • Locoshads is estimated to use IPs allocated to public facilities and devices there.

  • This user used both VPN and regular ranges.
  • See accounts in Group 1 to see if this is the user associated with the before request.

  • Some accounts are locked, but if the main account and its sockpuppets are not confirmed as cross-wiki abuse, do not request lock from SRG.
  • This means that don't request lock just because some accounts are locked; if you want to lock, make sure that this is actually xwiki and request for it.

From a technical point of view. And there won't be any additional requests today, right? --Sotiale (talk) 11:59, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
