Wikipedia:Requests for checkuser

(Redirected from Wikipedia:RFCU)

CheckUser is the process of checking information about two or more users (including named users and IPs). Special users are able to check if two or more accounts have been used from the same computer. These users also see User agents. This can help them decide if two accounts are related in the way described above. It is also possible to see if a user is editing from an open proxy.

On this page, users can request some users or IPs to be checked. Good reasons should be given for why a checkuser is needed; you should provide links which show the questionable edits, etc. Questions should usually be created so that they can be answered by yes or no. Responses will be short in order to comply with Wikipedia privacy policy. Sensitive information (like the IP addresses used by an account) are usually not reported. The results are not always clear, and a decision should not be made only on the basis of checkuser results.

Use of the tool change

This tool is to be used to fight vandalism, to check for sockpuppet abuse, and to limit disruption of the project. It must be used only to prevent damage to the project.

The tool should not be used for political control; to apply pressure on editors; or as a threat against another editor in a content dispute. There must be a valid reason to check a user. Note that alternative accounts are not forbidden, so long as they are not used in violation of the policies (for example, to vote more than once or to make it look like more people support an idea). Checkusers will refuse a request, if the reason for checking is not good enough to warrant the use of the tool.

Please see the CheckUser policy for all the rules related to CheckUser.

Russian promotional BLP creators change

All of these accounts create articles about living Russian people (or people from surrounding countries) in a very recognizable way. I can't be sure if it's paid editing but I'm nearly sure they're all the same user. I have been tagging their articles with {{Undisclosed paid}} but in some cases they remove this template.

First part (up to KirkikUzbek): I see that there are no overlapping IPs, but that the users generally only have a few edits, which are focused on one, or a few articles. Paid editing is possible, but it's hard to prove.So from a Checkuser perspective, there's likely little we can do. Eptalon (talk) 19:12, 9 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
In the other batches, there were two or three pairs of users with overlapping ips, which I blocked. Eptalon (talk) 19:33, 9 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I do not have a problem with requests from an IP, but without any any evidence this is asking for a "fishing expedition" which is against the CU rules. Peterdownunder (talk) 09:02, 8 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
i think he is a Sock Puppet because after banning on English Wikipedia he started good edits on Simple English Wiki and after completing 500 positive edits he immediately request for Rollbacker rights on simple english Wikipedia. He has a huge record on Sock Puppetry by using Multiple accounts he is a master of Sock Puppetry
  1. Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Cyber.Eyes.2005/Archive - Wikipedia 2. Global account information for Cyber.Eyes.2005 - Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I think after getting rollbacker rights he will misuse Wikipedia for his personal profit. so i request CU to investigate this case as soon as possible.

Many people come to simplewiki to fix their mistakes, so we have a more keen eye here (per WP:ONESTRIKE). I don't think she is actively making bad edits on this wikipedia, more on the lines of just making edits in good faith. A lot of people dont know about some subjects and so would want to delete it or do something with it. We all do mistakes sometimes. But actively protesting against someone to be CU blocked just because they think they are gonna vandalize with rollback permissions? It's not gonna happen, enwiki is NOT simplewiki, we are a whole different wiki with our own guidelines (Like I said, many come here after a block/ban on other wikis, to try to fix their mistakes and such). Blaming someone for their mistakes and pinpointing it on their ban at enwiki is just straight-up rude. RiggedMint 13:52, 8 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
So it means any user who is blocked in English Wikipedia, He/she can do edits in Simple English wiki specially Sock Puppet? Because as compare to english wikipedia simple is easy. and what surety for that after getting Rights in simple english wikipedia he or she will not use their rights for their personal use>?Rajan Varun 14522 (talk) 13:58, 8 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
They cant do that, if they do, they get their perms removed and blocked per WP:ONESTRIKE. They usually come here to fix their mistakes to prove an unblock request, I've seen a few here (like Rathfelder and Cyber.Eyes.2005) and they're not doing anything bad here at all, I doubt she will abuse rollback. RiggedMint 14:03, 8 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Rathfelder is a good and hardworking editor. i have seen his good and positive edits in Simple Wikipedia. and you are also a good and polite contributor in Wikipedia. my only question is that if after getting Rights on simple Wikipedia if he or she will do edits for their own profit. then their rights can be revoked?Rajan Varun 14522 (talk) 14:08, 8 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Anyone can do a request, but I would expect a form ' I expect user A and user B to be related, because...' The form 'user A is a sock, please check' is known as fishing expedition, and not allowed.

Massive Asian BLP creators change

Recently, many Asian BLP creators have been blocked per CU action by Bsadowski1. After this enforcement, Shweta Tiwari Palampur (STP) and Mathew_14552 has been created and I estimate these 2 accounts as block evasion. The remarkable points of these massive Asian BLP creators are

  • Main focus is south Asian BLPs (especially actors and businesspeople etc.)
  • Intro copied from enwiki without attribution
  • Added categories are just copied from enwiki or none, violate WP:CATGENDER, WP:MOS (such as film vs movie)
  • They write the "Other websites" section as "Other Website" or "Other Websites"
  • They add {{authority control}}, sort keys, stub templates in one line
  • Sometimes create south Asian BLPs with no interwiki counterparts, including QD G11 cases

Since they are making pages in similar style and focus, I assume these accounts belong to a same personality. Since there are too many blocked users involved in this case, I will only list up blocked users with non-deleted contributions so others can easily compare their edit patterns.

It might sometimes be helpful to the CUs to list accounts that only have deleted edits so these can be looked into as well. The CUs (being admins) can review the deleted edits and might be able to DUCK test them instead of needing to CU them. fr33kman 04:33, 29 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I am sorry to say so, from a checkuser point of view, there is no match. If we were looking at the classic network theory, they'd be in the same class B network.

Pabitra Banerjee accounts change

The deletion log of Pabitra Banerjee says that the page was deleted 4 times per QD G11, and it was the first user (Barshaban) who caused such incidents. Then the second user (SexySonali) recreated the page with capitalization differences (special:redirect/logid/2565428), and also involved in the creation of their enwiki draft version. This situation suggests that somebody is using more than 2 accounts for repeating creations of promotional biographies. MathXplore (talk) 07:00, 14 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

When Mushroomi! welcomes FroggyFroppy, FroggyFroppy responds that Mushroomi! is a sockpuppet, then reports Mushroomi! as a sockpuppet at Simple Talk. It may help to note that the account FroggyFroppy was created after Mushroomi! got blocked on enwiki by a checkuser, and FroggyFroppy only has edits on simplewiki.

Inconclusive, CU information points one way, and behavioral eveidence points another way. Currently, neither of them is blocked on SEWP, and so far, I haven't seen bad behavior. Simply editing a page that another user created isn't grounds for blocking; also, if you knew that you were impersonating both users, what good might it do to report that the other user is a sock (of yourself)? - Admins are ofc free to block, but right now, I don't think my action as a checkuser is needed.

Amansharma111 change

Amansharma111 has a fairly large sockfarm on EN (see w:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/Amansharma111/Archive) and is known for UPE and promotional articles. They are also creating articles here now, and I believe these are the two most recent examples.

  • Anamika Vishwakarma 10 created Ujjawal Trivedi which was quickly deleted as a promotional articles. On EN, the page log [7] shows it has been created twice and deleted both times as G5, created by socks of Amansharma111. One of those socks, Nylonfrut has a single edit here at Vandana Sharma (Author) which was G5'd. See page logs at [8] and [9], lots of G5 deletions. Given the same article created on both wikipedia's but with different accounts and with the EN account CU blocked, I think it's highly likely to be an Amansharma111 sock.
  • Galbox Realme1 is similar, creating Thejo Kumari Amudala here, but on EN this article has been created three times, [10], each time quickly deleted as G5 as the creator was a sock of Amansharma111 (including Nylonfrut that created the Ujjawal Trivedi article on EN mentioned above). I think this is also highly likely to be another Amansharma111 sock.

If you look at the EN SPI page, you'll see that finding multiple socks is very common. Amansharma111 will often create a new account for a single article, then abandon that account. I know that several of the EN blocked socks are also blocked here, but others aren't. Hope it's not too crazy... Ravensfire (talk) 02:09, 10 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(Non-checkuser observation) Definitely the same person, quacking louder than five ducks with megaphones to me. --Ferien (talk) 10:50, 2 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Suppose it was dark, and a witch had been seen in an area, wearing a certain stle of clothing, and then later, someone else was seen with similar clothing, could we deduce from that, that it was the same witch? - So even if one witch had put a spell on you, and used her evil eye, should we hold the other person with similar clothing responsible? - In the case above, I have two completely different IP addesses, which strangely eough, resolve to the same area. Browsers match. You know when they are small, ducks, and swans look similar... Eptalon (talk) 14:10, 2 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Well, they appear to be back with Ferien en ruedas.... #prodraxis connect 13:37, 3 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Eptalon: And there is Coche taxi sobre ruedas who is indeffed for vandalism on enwiki and exist locally. Probably the same person we're dealing with. #prodraxis connect 17:06, 4 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It's obviously CHEEIZY, just looking at the edits. Having said that, it really does not matter who it is and if they are a copycat or anything. They all use proxies and thinking we can get any kind of clarity here strikes me as rather naive. My two cents is – just block and move on.

A House A Little Too Quiet accounts change

These two accounts have a lot of overlap at A House A Little Too Quiet and their enwiki draft version, and both of them are kicked out of frwiki. The first account is making pages and the second account was used for removing QD tags (see their talk page warnings). The first account is kicked out of frwiki due to "Abus d'utilisation de comptes multiples (faux-nez) ou contournement de blocage" (multiple account abuse). Once they are confirmed by CU, I believe this is a WP:ONESTRIKE case. MathXplore (talk) 14:41, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, in this case, we are talking about the same user. Same procedure as every year... Eptalon (talk) 14:14, 2 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mr.BrightMan22333 change

BenAbreu22 is CU-blocked on enwiki as a sockpuppet of User:Daniel Larze. Both accounts have made edits related to Daniel Larze (Puerto Rican Writer) here.— *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 23:49, 23 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm just going to call this a duck because of persistent disruption in the RfD discussion. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 00:08, 24 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

SottoPelle accounts change

The first user is blocked for 1 year due to promotional page creations, also made SottoPelle for 2 times (but deleted per QD G11). After that block, the second user has appeared and has received several warnings for promotional page creations, and they made SottoPelle today. Therefore, I assume that the second account is made to evade the block.MathXplore (talk) 10:49, 23 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Onb of them used an open proxy (which I blocked); for this reason, I can't say much if they are related... Eptalon (talk) 09:44, 7 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Muhammad Luqman accounts change

Both users are involved in the (re-)creation of Muhammad Luqman, a hoax page which creation has been repeated. PrankInvasion is already blocked and I estimate Lh11169 as block evasion. MathXplore (talk) 07:30, 14 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Now we have one more user at this page. MathXplore (talk) 07:32, 22 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User page profile suggests relation with the accounts above. MathXplore (talk) 07:00, 2 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A new user made a page with similar name (Muhammad Luqman Hafizi), same region (ASEAN), and same keyword (micronation). MathXplore (talk) 06:37, 6 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Result: there's a big chance they are the same user, or a group of closely related users. If it looks like a duck, quacks like one, and is made of wood... anyway, free blocks for everyone.. --Eptalon (talk) 08:19, 6 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A new user has a major overlap with Al-Hashimi917 about a deleted BLP (Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2023/Abdullah al-Hashimi). Overlap is also found at mswiki. MathXplore (talk) 05:33, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The user has made Mohammad Luqman, and deleted by QD G5, it suggests that this is a clear fit to this classification. MathXplore (talk) 08:14, 12 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New user is involved in recreation of Muhammad Luqman Hafizi and their enwiki draft versions. MathXplore (talk) 07:03, 27 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New user having overlap with Al-Hashimi917 (Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2023/Abdullah al-Hashimi), recreated the subject as Abdullah Nabil Mahmoud al-Hashimi. MathXplore (talk) 12:50, 30 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not too closely related; there are three bigger groups, but they don't share IPs, and are on the same class B or class C network. When its class C, browser info doesn't match up. So, nope, sorry; no block on CU evidence. Eptalon (talk) 18:45, 7 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A new user has recreated this subject as Al-Mamun III, also involved in the mswiki version (w:ms:Muhammad Luqman). MathXplore (talk) 12:01, 15 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

What I said above: Jawaan1 is one of those groups, but there is no "close match", so based on CU we can't block. This does of course not mean that they can't be blocked for other reasons... Eptalon (talk) 16:18, 15 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

VAUVISION accounts change

Possible block evasion. The first user (already blocked) made VAUVISION and their draft version, and the second user made VAUVISION (label). MathXplore (talk) 15:26, 10 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Another user has appeared at VAUVISION (label). MathXplore (talk) 15:29, 10 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't see an overlap; yes same country, but different IPs/ISPs.. Eptalon (talk) 12:44, 12 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ronnie Teja accounts change

Both users have activity overlap at Ronnie Teja (entrepreneur), and I estimate as block/lock evasion. Please also see Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2023/Ronnie Teja (entrepreneur) for details. MathXplore (talk) 08:50, 10 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

DhimaanIng has been glocked, but I get no CU info about him/her, edits seem to have been in June MariePandy has 9 edits Eptalon (talk) 18:29, 7 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
