This page is for requesting CheckUser information on a wiki with no local CheckUsers (see also requesting checkuser access). Make sure to follow the following instructions, or your request may not be processed in a timely manner.

Before making a request:

  1. Make sure you have a good reason for the check. It will only be accepted to counter vandalism or disruption to Wikimedia wikis. Valid reasons include needing a block of the underlying IP or IP range, disruptive sockpuppetry, vote-stacking, and similar disruption where the technical evidence from running a check would prevent or reduce further disruption.
  2. Be specific in your reasons. Ambiguous or insufficient reasons will cause delays. Explain the disruption and why you believe the accounts are related, ideally using diff links or other evidence.
  3. Make sure there are no local checkusers.
  4. Please ensure that the check hasn't already been done:

How to make a request

  • Comment: The local community has some doubt on Ruslik0's decision to lock 雪兒許 and 药科大负责人. I understand if Ruslik0 doesn't want to release further information for confidentiality reasons, but if another steward check the two users again (and hopefully confirm the blocks aren't wrong), that'll clear the doubt for good. --Classy Melissa (talk) 14:44, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
    • I know you guys are busy, so I personally won't object Ruslik0 either, though. Classy Melissa (talk) 14:47, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
  • Furthermore, I hope you guys can check whether they have used proxy or not. --SCP-2000 (talk) 18:34, 14 October 2019 (UTC)
@SCP-2000:Signature missed. --Hamish 15:54, 14 October 2019 (UTC)
  • A gentle reminder, checkUser is not for fishing. If a user is disruptive, local wiki can go ahead and block without checking users.13019891ahs (talk) 14:45, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
    • We do not fishing, and only want to check their relationship and whether they are sock or not. --SCP-2000 (talk) 19:27, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
    • @13019891ahs:Thanks for your reminder. However, per our local discussion, Ntuccy's behaviour does not (yet) warrant an immediate block. Their editing tendencies are similar to some convicted[kidding] LTAs (though not so similar as to warrant ducking), and they have engaged in suspected vote stacking. Hence we apply for a CU.

  • Furthermore, I hope you can check the sleepers of Dragoon17cc if you are free. --SCP-2000 (talk) 18:44, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
    • If editing behavior is good enough to confirm, there is generally no need to checkuser.13019891ahs (talk) 13:29, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
      • Actually the editing behavior is not enough for us to confirm their relationship, so we need to request Checkuser. --SCP-2000 (talk) 19:16, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
  • User"Dragoon17cc"will be scale in tomorrow, may steward do it as fast as possible? Thank you! --Streetdeck Talk) 10:15, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
