  •   Likely - All users listed here have same UA and has edited from the same or similar IP range around the same time frame. Another user Apple33 is a possible alter ego.--Jyothis 18:37, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

  Possible --Jyothis 18:49, 4 May 2010 (UTC)


Philon III and all his socks used the same IP in range. You have already blocked all the sockpuppets I found.--Shanel 21:17, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Okay. I have unabled the account creation on that IP range, and I just hope it will not bother serious contributors. Thank you for the CU :) -- Quentinv57 08:22, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Bangeg, Happybek@ko.wikipedia

  Unlikely, users edit via multiple computers and many different ISP--Shizhao 12:15, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
Just a note; just because they are unlikely sockpuppets, it doesn't mean they are not meatpuppets, and after what you explain in the reason, I would say they are likely meatpuppets, but it's no way of proving it. Laaknor 12:33, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

Diego Grez@plwiki

  Declined - The Polish Wikipedia has local CheckUsers (& Masti is one of them). Please ask them for checks. Also please note that on some projects requests for self-checkuser are considered disruption and would get declined. --Dferg 01:16, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
OK. --Diego Grez return fire 01:18, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

OK, thank you alot.--Pts.OF.Athrty 04:17, 10 May 2010 (UTC)


  Confirmed that the user also contributes with IP addresses, but IPs are very different on different dates. The result has been emailed to checkuser-l with non-public archive. It is then up to local administrators to decide what should be done next.--Jusjih 19:49, 9 May 2010 (UTC)
Hi. I'm sorry not to be on the checkuser-l e-mail list...
How can I obtain the IP adresses he has used else ? Can you send me a copy by email, please ? -- Quentinv57 10:41, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
  Done. Thanks. -- Quentinv57 17:19, 11 May 2010 (UTC)

Vandal in MSWIKI

IP range is not blockable. Sorry, --Dferg 18:31, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
If not the range, block the IP. Yosri 04:06, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
It's a dynamical assigned IP address so every time he access the internet he will have a different IP address so a single IP block is not going to help here. --Dferg 09:30, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
That is not the solution. That IP is not local, I don't expect much contribution anyway from those IP, or manually block all 216. Yosri 11:06, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
Hello. The vandal 1) switches from several IP ranges; 2) Bendahara used a new IP range different to the other vandals, but other technical information suggest that it's the same, 3) no new vandals where found under that IP and 4) it's a /11 range that it's impossible to block and since we do not have more users that came from it, I cannot determine narrow ranges to block. I'm sorry but   CheckUser is not magic pixie dust. --Dferg 18:05, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

Previous sockpuppet as follow (in no particular order):-

Tired reverting 40-50 vandals each time. Just block lowest to highest. If manual block, I will block 100 (216.xx - user level) IP (up/down) per every vandal. Not expecting contribution from BT IP range anyway, except interwiki. Yosri 10:04, 19 May 2010 (UTC)

  Done - Hello Yosri. I have rechecked again with the new vandal of today and all I can say is that the vandal has found a new IP range, totally different to the previous one and as huge as the previous so IP/range blocks won't help here. I know that it's frustrating however there's little we can do when the vandal jumps on huge ranges. Kylu said you something likelly on previous requests. If another steward wants to review this is free to do so. Oh, and added a 3 days rangeblock that will stop him for ~1 day or so. --Dferg 20:26, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
TQ. Any help is welcome. Yosri 21:02, 19 May 2010 (UTC)


  Done I cant publish the results here since it involves IP and a user. Please pm me in ##wikimedia-stewardsconnect for results --Jyothis 20:06, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
