Hello, I am sysop in ms wikipedia. User: 'Ttalk' has been blocked for article spaming. However, he usually will register again as new user, unless his IP is block. This have been going on and off since Nov'09. I need someone to block his IP at MS Wiki.

Added another rangeblock, working on another alternative also. Kylu 04:50, 14 January 2010 (UTC)


Hello, I am sysop in Fa.wikipedia. User:پوویا has been blocked for editwaring and copyvio. However, the listed IPs are editing while he was blocked. All of IPs are from Malaysia. Since the user has stated on his userpage that he is/was studying in Malaysia, it is very likely that these IPs are socks of the blocked account پوویا. --Behzad.Modares 21:56, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

  CheckUser is not for fishing and this request would be a violation of the privacy policy--Shizhao 02:15, 11 February 2010 (UTC)


Hello, I am sysop in Fa.wikipedia. User:ترانه جوانبخت has been blocked for two weeks. However, the IP bellow is editing while she has been blocked. The IP is from Montreal, Quebec. Since the user has stated on that she is living in Montreal, it is very likely that this IP is the sock of the blocked account to evade the sanction. If the IP is the sock of the user, she has been violated WP:COI, WP:AUTOBIO too--Behzad.Modares 23:21, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

I can't help but think that granting this request would be a violation of the privacy policy, given that you're wanting us to, essentially, tell you someone's IP address. You could block the IP (or range) as a duck if you're sure of your decision. Kylu 01:55, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Please confirm whether or not

EZIO (contr · deleted · block · log · block log · CA · guc · checkuser · lwcheckuser) (fawiki)

is a sock of either of the two following users:

Reason: Both of the above users have been blocked and put on topical ban for severe disruption. Based on editing pattern and lexicon, we suspect EZIO may be a sock that's being used to violate their ban , especially since the timing of the EZIO account initiation also coincides with the banning of both these users.--Zereshk 06:22, 5 January 2010 (UTC) (member of wp:fa admin staff)

There is no obvious relation between these three users. EZIO, Ab2llah, and SalmanParsi almost never edit at the same time; when they edit on the same day, they often edit in non-overlapping blocks. When Ab2llah and SalmanParsi edited at the same times on 23 November 2009, they did so with different IP addresses and slightly different software profiles. EZIO never edited at the same time as Ab2llah or SalmanParsi, although they edited some of the same days. All three users have ISP and software usage distinctive from the other two. —Pathoschild 22:43:58, 12 January 2010 (UTC)


  Inconclusive due to different IPs in connection with Dilya enikeeva.--Jusjih 03:52, 6 February 2010 (UTC)


  Inconclusive. Kayani did not edit long time, no data--Shizhao 02:44, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
So we suspect he is a new open an account for vandalism because the old account was banned --minhhuy*= 03:35, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, Kayani no checkuser data.--Shizhao 03:00, 10 February 2010 (UTC)
No problem, thanks --minhhuy*= 03:20, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but we can't give you the old account back, however, we could probably rename the old account, so you could register a new one... Laaknor 14:30, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
That would do the trick. :) Please rename it. KristianS 08:52, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
rename requested. Kristian - please create another account on that a bureaucrat there can later rename to KristianS, and reply to the thread here. Sj+ help translate 05:49, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
