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


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.

I would like to inform that recent enwiki SPI results (w:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/HinduKshatrana) suggests that there are more accounts related to आभीरवाटक (3rd user, also known as Rao Devilal Pratap (RDP), w:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Rao Devilal Pratap, already blocked by user:Bsadowski1). The 2nd user has activity overlaps at Majhraut (Ahir) with the RDP accounts.

I can see several socks in the history of this article, and this user seems to be maintaining the pattern of removing a chunk of content for their first edit. TechnoSquirrel69 (sigh) 07:23, 15 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, TechnoSquirrel89. To be able to do a request, I need at least two accounts to check. Listing only one, and telling there may be many socks would be 'fishing', and is not permitted by policy. Eptalon (talk) 07:53, 15 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for the note, Eptalon; I'm still getting used to procedures here on Simple. MathXplore has helpfully listed the accounts I was referring to, thank you!

Tyla accounts


As seen in the page history, Tyla has been often targeted by block evasion VPNs, etc. for massive text addition. This is done by the Tyler Antonius accounts (see the article's deleted revisions for past accounts, Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2023/Tyler Antonius, Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2024/Tyler Antonius, Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2024/Tyler Antonius (2nd nomination)), and they are targeting articles with similar names. A new account has started massive text addition here as well as the previous accounts. Therefore, I request comparison with the recently blocked/locked previous accounts. MathXplore (talk) 10:05, 14 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Tayla Mohale is unrelated, the other acccounts listed are connected (and already blocked). Note also, there's no connection to the well-established editor Tropical Storm Angela. Eptalon (talk) 07:48, 15 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@Operator873: I think there is a need for re-checking. The respective enwiki SPI has been updated (w:special:diff/1236292310). Based on the evidence presented in the SPI, I request a comparison with the previous accounts above and Prabhnoor singh 5cc (talk+ · tag · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · filter log · block user · block log · SUL · CA · checkuser (log)).

Reliance GCS accounts again


This CU request originally came from Wikipedia:Requests for deletion/Requests/2023/Reliance Global Corporate Security. As the result, Sentientgrineer (talk+ · tag · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · filter log · block user · block log · SUL · CA · checkuser (log)) and Armgodgun (talk+ · tag · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · filter log · block user · block log · SUL · CA · checkuser (log)) have a CU-block by user:Eptalon. However, w:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/Nittin_Das/Archive#29_April_2024 suggests their recent re-emergence. I have already blocked those that are already confirmed via the recent enwiki SPI. I also blocked an IP range (/64) that is involved in article recreation. Please check the latest account that I found in this month. They have similar user pages linking to the same company (User:Crovibay, User:Vishgor, special:permalink/9632494). MathXplore (talk) 12:46, 6 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Ahir and Rajput accounts


As can be seen in the page histories, these articles have a long history of content addition and reverts. Recent editors include locked accounts, enwiki CU-confirmed accounts, enwiki range-blocked IPs, etc. Now we have another user (the 1st account) involved in drastic content addition and reverts as well as the previous history. Can they be related to the previous editors? MathXplore (talk) 14:02, 5 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Rajanas and R2dra have overlapping IPs, buth both are blocked on Simple English Wiki already, so there's little to do there. Sarcastic kshatriya and आभीरवाटक are unrelated to the two, and to each other. Eptalon (talk) 19:56, 8 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
  Administrator note: The 1st user is blocked/locked for non-CU reasons. MathXplore (talk) 08:45, 18 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

As concerned in w:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Nauman335, there are too many accounts in this subject (including the enwiki draft version). Please also note that one IP user has a checkuserblock-wide in enwiki, the 3rd user is blocked per the enwiki SPI and the 2nd account is also mentioned in the same SPI. Is this what we call teamwork ? MathXplore (talk) 11:18, 5 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I would also like to note that the 1st user has made Zard Patton Ka Bunn, and w:Zard Patton Ka Bunn is deleted as CSD G5 per w:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Nauman335, the same SPI as well as above. Please also note that the same IP range is also involved in this article. However, since the 1st user is currently not registered for enwiki, I cannot use the SPI report. Local check in this project is needed. MathXplore (talk) 12:24, 6 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I have more updates about the 1st user. They made Jaan Nisar (2024) (special:redirect/logid/2761385), entry with unusual and unneeded disambiguation as well as w:Jaan Nisar (2024). After I moved the page to clear the disambiguation (Jaan Nisar), I noticed that the 1st user and 3rd user has a made a copy of w:Draft:Jaan Nisar. When checking the deleted revisoins of Jaan Nisar, I also found that the same IP range is also involved here. Please also note that the author of w:Draft:Jaan Nisar is already blocked at enwiki due to the same SPI classification (w:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Nauman335). MathXplore (talk) 03:04, 8 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
To pile on to this, Zard Patton Ka Bunn was originally created on enwiki by a Nauman335 sock - [1]. Barzakh was copied from w:Draft:Barzakh_(TV_series) which was created by an IP in a range where Nauman has been known to be active, see [2] which was created by a Nauman sock then finished by an IP in this range, which is somewhat common from Naumann as socks get blocked. Is MakeInLine the newest Nauman sock here? I've got no doubt based on behavior. Ravensfire (talk) 13:35, 8 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I also noticed that special:permalink/9637379 is same to w:Khaie (CSD G5 case per same SPI). MathXplore (talk) 09:30, 9 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
(Update) Khaie is made by the 1st user. MathXplore (talk) 10:38, 9 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
This page was deleted by user:Fr33kman. MathXplore (talk) 01:45, 10 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, they are all related. Also an IP range block is warranted. fr33kman 04:31, 10 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
See w:Special:Contributions/, looking at the activity of that range that hits Pakistani film/television, you nearly always find a Nauman sock in recent past and their recent edits are to link to the articles created here by socks. There's also some good edits in there as well though, sigh. And here, it's only the past few days that I can truly say is Nauman. Ravensfire (talk) 16:30, 10 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Vanderpumpstan (June 2024)


Cedricmartinez is a new account that's created several articles that are massively oversourced, all about people that are connected to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Many of the sources used are from Bravo TV, which is common for Vanderpumpstan articles, as is the extreme details and sources. Compare the article style to other articles in the last version from a previous Vanderpumpstan sock - [3], [4], [5]. New editors don't create massive articles like that, with the massive number of sources, for people that generally have marginal roles in the various shows. The user name, Cedricmartinez, is also the name of someone connected to The Real Housewives of BH, which Vanderpumpstan has done before (see 0ddotnek, which is Ken Todd backwards, husband to Lisa Vanderpump). From prior checks, CU may be a bit marginal but I feel the behavior is more than enough to block as a sock. I've added four of the most recent socks to the CU list for comparison.

I would like to alert that a brand new account has substantial activity overlaps and share similar interests with previously blocked/locked accounts in a short term. All involved accounts are editing Miss Universe Myanmar, and w:Special:Contributions/Thunder652 suggests that the brand new account has strong interest in this subject. Please see w:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/AungKaung932 for the related enwiki SPI page. I look forward to hearing from the CUs.

As concerned in Special:Diff/9575212, we have too many accounts involved in over-reverting at this article, and some accounts have very low edit counts. Can the appearance of so many new accounts concentrate in one article in a short term less than 3 months? SeatedSnow (SS) is the latest account among this request, and their edit summary of special:diff/9580657 is a copy of our admins (special:diff/9570001). This coincidence suggests that SS already knows the status of the article in this project. Please investigate the relations between these accounts. MathXplore (talk) 04:04, 6 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

IPs and account don't overlap but technical data are the same. I don't think that's good enough for a cublock on its own but you should react to the behaviour of the account. fr33kman 03:20, 10 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
