Possible socks@nowikipedia

you may block this ip 85.196.74.30 which is used for sock-puppetry many times . also you can block all these users which are   Confirmed socks (most of them are already blocked) user:Aeroklubi user:Huseis user:Reisehutu user:Antiloop .
users Brobarn and Sazsaz are both located in Norway , though there is possibility that you both could be one person but as   CheckUser is not a crystal ball you should look for other patterns . Mardetanha talk 13:44, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

박진실 전도사님@ko.wikipedia

These users make cross-wiki distruptive editings such as non-discussion moving("鎭海벚꽃祝祭" in en.wp, "Ilovephos" in ko.wp), impersonating other people(User:Chugun - Chagan, User:ChongDae - HongDae, User:Phenomenart - Phenomenarte, User:Klutzy - Klutzy Pedal), add block template on user page("Ilovephos" in en.wp, "鎭海벚꽃祝祭" in ko.wp). These users have same editing habits (of course in both ko.wp and en.wp), such as follows:
  • They make new user for avoiding their blocks(Some of these use a signature of the others).
  • They have interesting in transportation articles, but make nonsense editing, bad discussion.
  • They vandalize other people's user page such as adding block template.
We need the reason of blocking and banning, so they should be checked they are using sockpuppetries. - Chugun (Talk) 08:35, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

Regulus@frwiktionary

I know that those four users are socks and are using the same IP range. I just need to know what this plage is, and if other accounts have been created with it.

Therefore, I don't know if you can check it, but I need to know the activity of 83.115.0.0/16 (try of edits or of account creations). It seems that our vandal use a new IP range, so we can probably unblock the first one. -- Quentinv57 09:00, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

  Done. No other socks found on that IP-range, but he keeps changing his IP. Still comes from IPs owned by France Telecom, and two of the users came from the same IP, but I would not suggest range-blocking at this time, because of the sice of the ISP, and other users in the same ranges.

  Additional information needed Could you please explain the reason again? the link above does not seems to be working. (dont worry about your language, we will try to catch up with you.) --Jyothis 00:35, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

Discussion link goes to a non existant page. --Jyothis 00:40, 31 July 2010 (UTC)
Ok. That is not helpful, as I cant read vi. Would you please explain what is the issue and why do we need a CU on them? --Jyothis
Some IP think they have to work very similar and Dinhtuydzao had once banned the use of puppets, many thought he should continue to open this account to illegally vote. This causes disagreement and makes people insulting each other, that's all I can say minhhuy*= 00:47, 31 July 2010 (UTC)
And Jyothis can use Google Translate if you don't know Vietnamese minhhuy*= 00:50, 31 July 2010 (UTC)
  Doing... ok, as I understand, suspected sock for voting and suspected socking/disruptions by a previously banned user. Apologies, didnt realize that vi was a google aware lang. --Jyothis 00:54, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

  Unlikely Though these users have a very similar, they edit from different ranges and have different operating systems. You can deduce further based on their behaviour patterns. --Jyothis 02:27, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

Thank you very much, Jyoyhis :^) minhhuy*= 05:19, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

Moulton@en.wikiversity

Is this documentation of an already existing check, or did you add Done on accident? Kylu 18:55, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
Copy and paste fail. I accidentally cut out a line so I copied another real fast and forgot to remove the "done". Ottava Rima (talk) 21:24, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
I just added an IP signing as Barry Kort aka Moulton. Ottava Rima (talk) 17:05, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
I think the IP can be safely blocked as   It looks like a duck to me. Caprice edits from the exact same IP address as Moulton with a useragent match. The IP you posted does not match either of the IPs that Caprice uses, however it's the same service provider. None of the three IPs are in the same (assignable) CIDR range, so a range block is not a valid option. Other stewards are invited (begged?) to review and opine on my conclusions. Kylu 02:07, 7 August 2010 (UTC)

Betalph@ko.wikibooks

Dear Betalph, there are a lot of ways to creat several accounts without getting detected. Besides, you are notorious for abusing account. The reasons for block are not only abusing account but also harassment, threat, malicious agitation on cross ko wiki projects as well as on outdoor websites. I don't know what this selbst checking user means. Please don't request unnecessarily. You are blocked on ko WP, Books, Wikt. I said already somewhere what you ought to do. 아흔(A-heun) 06:10, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

ANICE@kowikipedia

These users are all sockpuppets of one user. This user has made 17 sockpuppets, and they all got blocked likely in April, 2010. And now, I have found some evidences that the user "ANICE" is another sockpuppet of them. Here are some evidences:

  • Sockpuppets and "ANICE" all wrote edit summaries in detail. CEO's, ANICE's
  • They all use their discussion page as their own user page.
    • 보안과장's. "If you want to discuss me, please leave some word here."
    • ANICE's, "행유란 자의 만행". As I told, in here, this user writes down the personal thoughts in his discussion page.
  • They all does some personal attacks.
    • Feeling's. It contains, "니가 관리자도 아닌데 관리자인 척 저명성 어쩌고 저작권 어쩌고 하는 꼴이 우습구나.(How funny it is that you chatter about notability, copyrights, blah, blah, since you're not an administrator!)", "양심도 없는 녀석아...(An unconscious man...)", "당신의 행동은 초등학생들이나 하는 짓이다.(Your acting feels me like a elementary school student.)", ... Their sockpuppets' personal attacks are too innumerable to write down all of those.
    • ANICE's, "행유란 자의 만행". The user is doing personal attacks about me. "행유란 자는 위키백과에서 암과 같은 존재로 판단됩니다.(행유 is a cancer of wikipedia.)"
    • Especially, they all pick a fight with mentioning the users' ages. They generally use the word, "10대(teenagers)" or "20대(twenties)"(with "초중반"). 보수주의자's, 보안팀장's, and ANICE's.

By these evidence, I want to check if "ANICE" is another sockpuppets of them. Thank you. -- 행유 04:22, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Okanosato@enwikiversity

Over an extended period of time, these three users have been adding copyrighted Japanese song lyrics to the English Wikiversity. Despite warnings from several different users to stop, these users have ignored the warnings and any attempt at dialogue about their actions. Instead, they have attempted to have their talk pages deleted which would have the effect of hiding warnings and attempts at discussion from most users. Recently Okanosato was given a final warning. Shortly thereafter he chose to publicly reveal his password, necessitating that edit to be hidden and leading to a block by Diego Grez. Earlier this evening, Kanjy Kanji revealed his password, requiring the same response. As the passwords were the same, and these editors have engaged in a similar pattern of disruptive and irresponsible conduct, I am requesting a checkuser to determine if these accounts are the same person. In addition, I am requesting that any other accounts be identified for appropriate action to be taken. Thanks, Geoff Plourde 04:57, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

"Yolande"

Status:    Done

Dear stewards/CUs,

Can you please check for sockpuppets:

It may be anyone's sockpuppet, but a connection with the following accounts may be found due to similar areas of interest and similar pages edited at wp-nl:

The IP has been blocked for using open proxies at wp-it. It has been blocked at wp-fa for blatant (offensive antisemitic) vandalism.

User Ben Pirard has left wp-nl after being blocked for violating guidelines like WP:NPOV. User Datu is a new user at wp-nl who has been warned for violating WP:NPOV too. User Beachcomber is a user who left wp-nl but edited similar articles.

Best regards, Woodwalkertalk 08:54, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

This sounds like a shooting ducks to me,Yolande edited only it.wiki, Ben Pirard didn't edit any projects where Yolande or Datu edited and the IP didn't edit all the projects both edited, don't think a checkuser can be done here but that just my opinion. Huib talk Abigor 09:54, 25 August 2010 (UTC)
Please note the SUL, the IP edited on six different projects and received warnings/blocks on at least four of these. I'm not suggesting checking either Pirard or Datu. Just mentioning they may be a likely outcome. Regards, Woodwalkertalk 10:00, 25 August 2010 (UTC)
