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 toolEdit

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.

Current requestsEdit

Please add requests to the top of the list.


RemitbuberEdit

Included in this request is the most recent sockpuppet I found. There are some overlaps with Remitbuber's previous socks:

*Fehufangą✉ Talk page 08:40, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

‎Mr singla112211Edit

Username is a loud quack. Both are trying to promote Priyanshu Singla. The first account was pblocked from the article, and the second account evaded their partial block by (rather confusingly) creating Priyanshu. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 02:59, 3 May 2022 (UTC)

New account made for RfD votes. MathXplore (talk) 07:43, 3 May 2022 (UTC)

Vivek Pandey accountsEdit

These new accounts appeared only to edit Vivek Pandey. MathXplore (talk) 06:33, 1 May 2022 (UTC)

Ali Tajdary socksEdit

All of these accounts are promoting the same person. User:Confermation is currently blocked indefinitely. Deppty (talk) 23:33, 28 April 2022 (UTC)

117.226.153.105Edit

Both user accounts from India, both of which have one or two edits, both of which have a {{keep}} vote on Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2022/Mahira Sharma. Very similar writing. MrMeAndMrMeLet's talk 18:23, 28 April 2022 (UTC)

(Non-checkuser observation) Requests here are used for linking accounts with other accounts, and IPs cannot be technically connected to other IPs. At best, a checkuser could be used to investigate whether the IP was being used by account to evade an existing block, but no target account is listed in the request Griff (talk) 18:37, 28 April 2022 (UTC)

WwikixEdit

Deliblecue made an RfD (Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2022/List of women politicians) on an article that was kept at RfD last year (Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2021/List of women politicians) where the creator of that was also blocked as a Wwikix sock. Dlublucaszy has been very involved in Template:Dutch political leaders which has been almost exclusively been edited by Wwikix socks and !voted keep at RfD with no explanation. --Ferien (talk) 18:09, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

  Confirmed plus 1. Operator873 connect 19:39, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

SpreadmediaglobalEdit

User:LevelMusicOffl was blocked in the English Wikipedia as a sock of Spreadmediaglobal. Both users recreated RfD-deleted articles which were created by socks of Spreadmediaglobal: Deri Lorus, Stephen Zechariah. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 08:39, 22 April 2022 (UTC)

  Confirmed Operator873 connect 19:45, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

Rob waringEdit

All kept recreating the Greg Maluma despite a consensus at RfD. Rob warring is globally locked so this is potential lock evasion. --Ferien (talk) 07:57, 21 April 2022 (UTC)

Already confirmed on enwiki... no action is needed. --Ferien (talk) 09:16, 21 April 2022 (UTC)

Odisha Adarsha Vidyalaya, Shirsa accountsEdit

These accounts seem to be created to vote for Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2022/Odisha Adarsha Vidyalaya, Shirsa. MathXplore (talk) 10:54, 20 April 2022 (UTC)

Added another user whose edits are only for the RfD above. MathXplore (talk) 10:58, 20 April 2022 (UTC)

Chemistrylover3 and Withlovedibya currently blocked on enwiki, see en:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Dibya Ranjan Giri. Deppty (talk) 13:44, 20 April 2022 (UTC)
