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

How to make a request:

  • Place your request at the bottom of the section, using the template below (see also {{srcu}} help).
    === Username@xx.project ===
    {{CU request
     |status          = <!--don't change this line-->
     |language code   = 
     |project shortcut= 
     |user name1      = 
     |user name2      = 
     |user name3      = 
    <!-- Max 10 users -->
     |discussion      = [[Example]]<!-- local confirmation link / local policy link -->
     |reason          = Reasons here. ~~~~

    For example:

  On hold Discussion regarding this request has been raised and will be processed thereafter. --Sotiale (talk) 02:53, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale: Any update on this? --Rschen7754 02:28, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
Recently, there have been many users who have contacted me for updates. This request is still under review; Upon completion of the review, the decision will be made immediately. --Sotiale (talk) 12:03, 28 October 2020 (UTC)


Due to recent chaotic situation on local discussion page, this request was delayed a few days. These are LTA zh:WP:D17C's puppets blocked locally since last month's check. Please compare them to this round of check, and tell us if they used proxy or VPN. Lastly, we'd like stewards to globally block their IP bands per local CU policy zh:WP:CUP#1. Thank you. --Super Wang hates PC You hate, too? 02:52, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

  Doing... Ohh, maybe you don't like me? :p --Sotiale (talk) 10:23, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
Yes I do XD --Super Wang hates PC You hate, too? 11:08, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
  •   Confirmed Group 1: Afoulbawls, AntimccS, Weirsawarty, Wuhanprong, Mitchpark9, Tellsavoid, Laststemp, Wezenaides, Yankstris, Hkga20312315, Hkga20312316, Parkliner2, Limptuxes, Polsreeve, Diodes9, Woesalgae, Krktalk, Broadmaid, Wedgetact, 開心拼盤, Bratzeta, Tintscabby, PMC42157MU
  •   Confirmed Group 2: Wristsalk, NDD214, Signdrugs, Oslodawes, PMC94321, Headaged, Vedasiamb, 馬史史21, M412CC, Merlelaid, Hansmark9, Wawtalk, Monkgauze
  •   Confirmed Group 3: Swashcisco, Wawkrk7
  •   Inconclusive Locoshads

  •   Confirmed Group 1, 2 and 3
  • Locoshads is estimated to use IPs allocated to public facilities and devices there.

  • This user used both VPN and regular ranges.
  • See accounts in Group 1 to see if this is the user associated with the before request.

  • Some accounts are locked, but if the main account and its sockpuppets are not confirmed as cross-wiki abuse, do not request lock from SRG.
  • This means that don't request lock just because some accounts are locked; if you want to lock, make sure that this is actually xwiki and request for it.

From a technical point of view. And there won't be any additional requests today, right? --Sotiale (talk) 11:59, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

I can't thank Sotiale more. --Hamish 12:00, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
Is 'this user' referring to Locoshads? --Hamish 12:05, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale:^ --Hamish 12:05, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
@Hamish: Take a look at the comment about Locoshads. Locoshads is   Inconclusive and does not fall under the general comment of this investigation. --Sotiale (talk) 12:08, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
