Meta:Requests for CheckUser information

(Redirected from RfCU)
Requests and proposals Requests for CheckUser information on Meta-Wiki (for other wikis please go to here) Archives (current)→
This page allows you to request CheckUser information on Meta.
  • Please read the CheckUser policy before asking for a check.
  • When adding new requests, please use the {{checkuser}} template to list the user names in question and {{checkip}} for IP adresses, which simplifies investigation.
  • List your request at the bottom of the "Requests for Meta-Wiki only" heading.
  • When asking for a check we need to know:
    • why do you believe that the accounts are related (please present evidence for that with the help of diffs, etc.),
    • why, if the accounts are related, they are being used abusively, in violation of policy; and
    • why a block or other measures can't be justified without the need of technical evidence.

Requests for Meta-Wiki onlyEdit


Both these accounts are probably socks of Skiyomi based on the behavior: inserting gibberish characters - 1, see deleted contributions of Challenge812 and Acquiescence88, creating pages with no meaningful content such as "Hello" or other meaningless strings. The two accounts also both (as well as other socks) involve cross-wiki abuse with the behavior same as meta, so a global lock should be justifiable (regardless of whether they are the same individual or not). -★- PlyrStar93 Message me. 15:30, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Very close names, account creation after multiple permission request rejects. Behavior seems similar, another user pointed out on one of the talk pages.--▸ ‎épine talk 16:21, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

  It looks like a duck to me - one is also blocked on enwiki as a sock. – Ajraddatz (talk) 17:14, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Attacks on user:Diamond_BlizzardEdit

Abuser is blatantly attacking this user. If we could please identify the range, and either 1) block the hell out of it here completely for a while; or 2) look to block that range on the user talk: page of the person, or from the whole user talk: ns. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:02, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: They're all technically related & have many more out there. A range block might be possible but I need to take a deeper look to avoid blocking too many inocent people. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 20:05, 22 June 2019 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio: I was hoping that you could do a partial block on the IP range and depending on the level of infestation it could be user talk: ns or solely that target page.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:12, 22 June 2019 (UTC)
I have semiprotected the DB's talk page for two years and locked the remaining sleepers. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:12, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
