Policies and guidelines CheckUser policy
This page provides information about CheckUser access and outlines the policy on its use. It was discussed in September and October 2005, and went live in November 2005.

Aksesi i kontrollorëve të adresave IP

CheckUser is an interface for users with the checkuser permission. A user with CheckUser status on a wiki can in particular check if a user is a sockpuppet of another user on that wiki (not on all wikis). By using it, users are able to:

  • Determine from which IPs a user has edited or done a logged action or password reset on the Wikimedia wiki;
  • Determine the edits, logged actions and password resets on the Wikimedia wiki of a specific IP (even when logged in);
  • Determine whether the user being checked has sent an email using MediaWiki interface to some other user. The time of the event is logged, the destination email address and user ID are obscured.

This information is only stored for a short period (currently 90 days), so edits made prior to that will not be shown via CheckUser. A log is kept of who has made which queries with the tool. This log is available to those with the checkuser-log permission:

See Help:CheckUser for the user manual.

Use of the tool

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

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 double-vote or to increase the apparent support for any given position).

Notification to the account that is checked is permitted but is not mandatory. Similarly, notification of the check to the community is not mandatory, but may be done subject to the provisions of the privacy policy.

Some wikis allow an editor's IPs to be checked upon his or her request if, for example, there is a need to provide evidence of innocence against a sockpuppet allegation; note, however, that requesting a checkuser in these circumstances is sometimes part of the attempt to disrupt.

Privacy policy

On Wikimedia projects, privacy policy considerations are of tremendous importance. Unless someone is violating policy with their actions (e.g. massive bot vandalism or spam) and revealing information about them is necessary to stop the disruption, it is a violation of the privacy policy to reveal their IP, whereabouts, or other information sufficient to identify them, unless they have already revealed this information themselves on the project.

Information release

Even if the user is committing abuse, it's best not to reveal personal information if possible.

  • Generally, do not reveal IPs. Only give information such as same network/not same network or similar. If detailed information is provided, make sure the person you are giving it to is a trusted person and will not reveal it himself/herself.
  • If the user has said they're from somewhere and the IP confirms it, it's not releasing private information to confirm it if needed.
  • If you're in any doubt, give no detail.


Access to CheckUser


Vetëm Stjuardët , sida anëtarë të stafit të Fondacionit wikimedia, Ombudsmen, dhe një numër shumë i vogël përdoruesish janë të lejuar të kenë statusin e chechkuser-it. Përdoruesit, përveç ombudsmen, mund të kenë status vetëm lokal.

Nëse në një projekt ekzistojnë Checkuser lokal, kontrolli mund të bëhet nga ta. Në raste emergjence, ose në raste vandalizmi ndër-wiki, Stjuardët mund të kryejnë kontrolle lokale. Stjuardët duhet ta zhbëjnë aksesin e vet Checkuser në këto projekte, pas përfundimit të kontrollit dhe të njoftojnë Checkuser-at lokalë ose Checkuser e-mail list.

If no local Checkusers exist for a project, requests will need to be made to the stewards to perform checks (such as "is UserX a sockpuppet of UserY"). To do so, simply add the request to Steward requests/Checkuser listing these users and explain the need for the check (with links). Depending on the nature of the request, the steward may deny it, may ask for more information, or may answer about the likelihood of the users in question having the same IP, same proxy, same network, same country, or being completely unrelated (see discussion for what the Steward should more precisely say to the editor).

Appointing local Checkusers

Në një wiki, mund të ketë përdorues me privilegje Checkuser-i, vetëm në dy raste. Me të pakëtn dy përdorues me të tillë status ose asnjë të tillë. Vetëm në këtë mënyrë ata mund të kontrollojnë dhe të konfirmojnë veprimet e njëri tjetrit. Në rastet kur në një wiki mbetet vetëm një Checkuser (kur njëri tërhiqet, apo hiqet) komuniteti duhet të zgjedh një të ri menjëherë, në mënyrë të tillë që numri i Checkuserve të jetë të paktën dy.

Në wikit me Komitet Arbitrimi (ArbCom) anëtarët e të cilit janë zgjedhur me mbështetjen e të paktën 25-30 anëtarëve të komunitetit lokal, Checkuser-at vendosen nga Arbitruesit, dhe vetëm nga këta. Pas rënies dakord, laëmërohet një Stjuard.

Në një wiki pa Komitet Arbitrimi (ArbCom) që plotëson kushtet më sipër, ose kur komuniteti preferon zgjedhje të pavarura, janë të mundura dy mundësi (rasti i Sq.Wikipedia):

  1. Komuniteti duhet të aprovojë checkuser lokalë me konsensus. Për këtëë gjë duhet të ketë lajmërime përkatëse në Kuvend etj. përdoruesi duhet të jetë i njohur me Rregullat e Privatsisë. Pasi ka marrë konsensusin (të paktën 70-80% në votim pro/kundër) e komunitetit lokal, dhe aprovimin e të paktën 25-30 redaktorëve/editorëve, përdoruesi duhet ta listojë veten tek Steward_requests/Permissions me një nyje tek faqja ku është marrë vendimi i komunitetit.
  2. Nëse nuk ka vota të mjaftueshme për të zgjedhur të paktën dy checkusera në një wiki, ajo wiki nuk do/duhet të ketë Checkuser fare. Editorët/redaktorët duhet t’i kërkojnë një Stjuardi që të kontrollojë nëse Përdoruesi X është marioneta e Përdoruesit Y. Për të bërë këtë , mjafton të shtohet kërkesa tek Steward_requests/Checkuser duke listuar përdoruesit në fjalë, që duhen hetuar, dhe duke shpjeguar se përse kërkohet të bëhet kontrolli (me lidhjet përkatëse).

Mailing list

There is a closed mailing list (CheckUser-l) to which all stewards and checkusers should have access. Email the list moderators to gain access. Use this mailing list to ask for help, ideas and second opinions if you're not sure what the data means.

IRC channel

There is a private IRC channel (#wikimedia-checkuser) to which all stewards and checkusers who use IRC should have access. This channel serves the same purpose as the mailing list, but in real-time. Contact any channel member to gain access; a channel manager will grant permanent access. Ask a steward if you need help gaining access.

Removal of access

Any user account with CheckUser status that is inactive for more than one year will have their CheckUser access removed.

In case of abusive use of the tool, the Steward or the editor with the CheckUser privilege will immediately have their access removed. This will in particular happen if checks are done routinely on editors without a serious motive to do so (links and proofs of bad behavior should be provided).

Suspicion of abuses of CheckUser should be discussed by each local wiki. On wikis with an approved ArbCom, the ArbCom can decide on the removal of access. On wikis without an approved ArbCom, the community can vote removal of access.

Complaints of infringement of CheckUser, Access to Nonpublic Information Policy or Privacy Policy breaches are handled by the Ombudsman commission for all Wikimedia projects.
