Requests for checkuser
This is the place to request investigations of abuse of multiple accounts or of other circumstances that require use of checkuser privileges.

Requesting a checkuser


Please don't ask us to run checks without good reason; be aware of the following before requesting:

  1. Checkuser is a means to choose for difficult cases. If multiple accounts show clear behavior patterns or editing type, please post on the administrator's noticeboard.
  2. Running a check will only be done to combat disruption on Wikidata, or as required to assist checkuser investigations on other Wikimedia wikis.
    • Valid reasons for running a check include, for example: suspected block evasion, vote-stacking, or other disruption where technical evidence would prevent or reduce further disruption.
  3. Evidence is required. When you request a check, you must include a rationale that demonstrates (e.g., by including diffs) what the disruption to the project is, and why you believe the accounts are related.
    • Requests to run a check without evidence or with ambiguous reasoning will result in delays or the request not being investigated. Do not post requests for fishing without any grounds.
  4. The privacy policy does not allow us to make a check that has the effect of revealing IP addresses. Do not post requests to compare IPs to accounts or IPs to IPs comparisons.
  5. Requests to run a check on yourself will be declined.
Outcome

Responses will be brief in order to comply with Wikimedia privacy policy. Due to technical limitations, results are not always clear.

Privacy concerns

If you feel that a checkuser request has led to a violation of the Wikimedia Foundation privacy policy regarding yourself, please refer the case to the Ombuds commission.

To request a checkuser

Cases are created on subpages of Wikidata:Requests for checkuser/Case.

Creating a request
  • Insert the name of the suspected sockpuppeteer (the main account or puppetmaster, not the sockpuppet!) in the box below, leaving out the "User:" prefix. Do not remove the text in the box, add to the end only.
  • Please explain/justify the request by saying what it is you suspect and why it is important that the check be carried out. Indicate the usernames you suspect, using {{checkuser}}. Please do not use this template in the section header, as that makes it difficult to read the account names. Include the diffs or links required to support the request and reason for it.
  • There are people to assist you and help with maintenance of the page. Just ask for help on the admin noticeboard if you really are stuck, or take your best shot and note that you weren't completely sure of what to say.
  • If a case subpage already exists, edit the existing page instead, either adding to the currently open section (if the case is not yet archived) or adding a new section to the top (if the case has been archived). When editing an existing case, be sure to list/transclude the subpage here.
Example
If you want to request a checkuser on User:John Doe, enter the text Wikidata:Requests for checkuser/Case/John Doe then click "Make a checkuser request". You will be taken to a page where you can fill out the request. Please make your request there brief and concise.


Translate this header box!

22 January 2021[edit]

Rationale, discussion and results[edit]

Reason: Recreated previously deleted item. Trade (talk) 07:14, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Results: Declined as previous accounts are stale. Blocked and deleted item based upon behavioural evidence. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 08:10, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Thanks. Do you mind tagging and blocking the previous requests by me that you declined? --Trade (talk) 08:16, 22 January 2021 (UTC)
Trade, I have already done that. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 10:18, 22 January 2021 (UTC)
No they are still not blocked nor tagged. @1997kB: --Trade (talk) 10:22, 22 January 2021 (UTC)
Trade, Those one left doesn't require blocking as abuse of multiple accounts happen when either master is already blocked or edits of both the accounts overlap. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:16, 22 January 2021 (UTC)
That's a new thing. Usually we just block and tag them for behavioral evidence. --Trade (talk) 11:31, 22 January 2021 (UTC)
Trade, Those could easily be a case of a forgotten password. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 11:44, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

I just know that we usually block socks. If you want the policy regarding socks changed you should take it up with the other CU's. --Trade (talk) 13:02, 22 January 2021 (UTC).

16 April 2021[edit]

Rationale, discussion and results[edit]

Reason: Xavier Rannel is the latest in a long string of socks, but since there doesn't appear to be a documented request for checkuser yet, figured it would be helpful. See duck edits Special:Contributions/Xavier Rannel going around tagging other socks and being interested in the same things. Requesting CU to confirm the prior accounts and tag them, and check for any sleepers. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 18:43, 16 April 2021 (UTC)

Rationale, discussion and results[edit]

Reason: user follows the same pattern of edits, adds false and improbable cause of death, burial place and place of death, is a sock account that has been globally blocked for abuse of account use. (El usuario sigue el mismo patrón de ediciones, añade causa de muerte, lugar de sepultura y lugar de fallecimiento falsos e improbables, es una cuenta calcetín que ha sido bloqueada globalmente por abuso de uso de cuentas) --Ytha67 (talk) 18:28, 24 July 2020 (UTC)

If we take this case seriously, we also add these IPs or IP ranges which clearly show long-term abusive editing patterns:

I am pretty sure that there are some more ranges which I am not yet aware of. Furthermore, I suspect that the User:Nicewels sock zoo is also related (see es:Categoría:Wikipedia:Títeres bloqueados de Nicewels and Category:Suspected Wikidata sockpuppets of Nicewels), although this does not matter here that much (all accounts stale). CU should decide whether we add strict range blocks that apply to logged-in users as well. Otherwise they come back again and again, as they are a long-term vandal. Anyways, I don't think we need to continuously add new accounts to this CU case, as we can simply block new accounts for behavioral reasons. —MisterSynergy (talk) 18:09, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

Likely that Javiermiller2003, RoulMiller30, and AngelMiller2020 are related to the socks based on technical data. No comment on any of the IP addresses above from a CheckUser perspective. Unfortunately the Nicewels accounts are all Time2wait.svg Stale.--Jasper Deng (talk) 09:13, 13 December 2020 (UTC)
What's the problem with the IPs? —MisterSynergy (talk) 09:48, 13 December 2020 (UTC)
MisterSynergy, CheckUsers won't connect IP with accounts because they are bound by the Privacy policy. IPs need to be handled based on behaviour evaluation only. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 12:41, 13 December 2020 (UTC)

Is there anything that can be done about this user? Some concerted cross-wiki effort? Are there IP ranges that could be globally locked? Could some people responsible for these global Wikimedia affairs be notified? Could you please have a look at my English Wikipedia report, too? This user has been doing great damage at the Spanish Wikipedia, too, and I think it's obvious that this method of reporting new socks every couple of days (and waiting before the request is noticed and processed, while the sock is freely making tens of hoax edits across Wikimedia projects) is painfully inefficient. Something has to be done, now.—J. M. (talk) 22:00, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
