Meta:Requests for CheckUser information/Archives/2008

Senang Hati@metaEdit

Senang Hati (talk contribs deleted contribs logs block user block log CentralAuth AllContribs checkuser). This user was permanently blocked today for great vandalism. It should be a good idea to make a checkuser of this user that knows perfectly how to use mediawiki software. Can you check it in another wikipedia, too ?--Bertrand GRONDIN – Talk 11:26, 30 April 2008 (UTC)[]

For your information (& others) it was checked here at the time. I think that checks will be made on other wikis too as I posted a message on the CU list. Thanks --Herby talk thyme 11:35, 30 April 2008 (UTC)[]

Johnny the Metapedian@metaEdit

A checkuser is needed to see if there are any sleepers on the underlying IP is needed. Thanks, AP aka --Kelsington 19:00, 8 July 2008 (UTC)[]

  Done slightly before your requested it :) Sorted. Thanks --Herby talk thyme 19:05, 8 July 2008 (UTC)[]


Please check Drone - moving vandal. "Serial vandal" from ruwiki ? Ferrer 12:28, 4 October 2008 (UTC)[]

already done some time ago, it is always User:Канопус Киля, who uses open proxies for vandalizing. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:29, 4 October 2008 (UTC)[]

New sock of User:Канопус Киля ? Ferrer 23:32, 4 October 2008 (UTC)[]
Yes, please don't open a request here now for every account he makes, because this is a never ending story, thanks, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 01:17, 5 October 2008 (UTC)[]

Civilization II@metaEdit

Moving and redirect vandalism. Ferrer 09:56, 19 October 2008 (UTC)[]

There's no allegation of relationship to any other user here in this report.   CheckUser is not for fishing... however the log for this user shows quite a bit of tomfoolery. I took a look, as is my perogative, and found no other users directly associated. I may have missed something and invite review by other CUs. Hope that helps. ++Lar: t/c 11:44, 19 October 2008 (UTC)[]
Please, check Civilization II = Канопус Киля (russian serial vandal) ? In Russian Wikipedia this information will be useful for discussion "Канопус Киля unblock". Civilization II's modus operandi = Канопус Киля sockpuppets modus operandi. Ferrer 11:58, 19 October 2008 (UTC)[]
I did not find a connection to that user, as I said already when I said I found no connection to any other users. If you have more specific information to share, please do. I don't speak russian so maybe another CU should take this further. Also, is this actually a request for a crosswiki check? ++Lar: t/c 12:25, 19 October 2008 (UTC)[]
Uhm, hello, I did not see this before,   Confirmed they are the same user, (that would not even need a cu, just for the contributions, but the proxys he used are now blocked); As said please don't open a request for every single vandal account he creates, we check them anyway, thanks. best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 12:58, 19 October 2008 (UTC)[]
Lar, please see above or the ml, best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 13:00, 19 October 2008 (UTC)[]
Thanks Birdy! I figured that since you had told Ferrer not to open requests for every new suspect of Канопус Киля that this was a new, unrelated request... Ferrer please listen to Birdy, thanks. ++Lar: t/c 16:52, 19 October 2008 (UTC)[]


Accounts with similar sounding names created in short succession, possible sleeper accounts for vandal. No accounts by these names seem to have recent edits to any other project. Do they share a common IP? WjBscribe 23:32, 2 July 2008 (UTC)[]

Yes, it is highly   Likely that these users all originated in a related way. Same person or persons, same location. Using this tool (and other names) I found that a user named Ayu had contribs on de:wp but the ID is not a SUL.
Note, I think maybe we should enhance {{checkuser}} to include luxo's tool and centralAuth? So I did. ++Lar: t/c 00:47, 3 July 2008 (UTC)[]
Thank you. All five accounts blocked. WjBscribe 00:51, 3 July 2008 (UTC)[]
I would advocate, this being Meta, asking them if they have an explanation, and if it sounds reasonable to you, unblocking again. They may be school chums or whatever, the IP they were using is absolutely compatible with that... Your call. ++Lar: t/c 00:58, 3 July 2008 (UTC)[]
I can certainly leave a message, but the fact that there are no accounts by these names that have been recently active on any Wikimedia Projects makes an innocent explanation for a group of people suddenly needing 5 accounts on meta hard to fathom... WjBscribe 01:01, 3 July 2008 (UTC)[]
What if a teacher has been training students how to edit wiki? :) --Jacob 02:07, 3 November 2008 (UTC)[]

Users involved in RFC about Canopus KilyaEdit

It is not user Arben from Russian Wikipedia from Kazan. I ask to check this user. 15:01, 30 November 2008 (UTC)[]

I confirm that it's an impostor. Please, check him and tell whose provocation it is — vvv 15:40, 30 November 2008 (UTC)[]
No other accounts on meta. Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 18:42, 30 November 2008 (UTC)[]

Another possible sockpuppets on Canopus Kilya's RFCEdit

All are most probably Canopus — vvv 09:48, 1 December 2008 (UTC)[]

  Confirmed socks of themselves, also found:
Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 16:49, 1 December 2008 (UTC)[]

What about User:Dies Ommodeon? Cf. the newest CK unblock request: Requests for comments/Unblock of Canopus Kilya. Same weirdish "poor Kanopus Kilya, give him a chance" kind of speech. --Thogo (talk) 23:26, 7 December 2008 (UTC)[]

One more: Special:Contributions/Arnold Zukagoy. --Thogo (talk) 11:37, 8 December 2008 (UTC)[]

"Dies Ommodeon" seems to be a sock of "Leader171", a cross-wiki-vandal.
The other one is inconclusive but obviously a vandal so an infinit block is in order, thanks and best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 14:46, 8 December 2008 (UTC)[]
