Any reason for the check? Ruslik 09:01, 4 May 2011 (UTC)
Checking found the reason: Raisekept and Raisekept1 were blocked for 6 months on January 30, extended to indefinite on January 31, then 38142239twd appeared on February 1, which would thus be a rather blatant block evasion if it were the same person. Nevertheless   Declined because the Raisekept accounts had their last edits in late January, which is more than 3 months ago, so they are   Stale (cannot be checked any more). - Andre Engels 14:51, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

This user edited from an IP from Hong Kong. The same IP was used by Cenfany, Vanessa1999 and Kelly456. Nobody else has edited from this IP (not counting edits made by the IP itself). UAs were also exactly the same (including unregistered use). It does not also appear to be an open proxy. Ruslik 12:51, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

I endorse this request. The abuse from this accounts and possibly from IP ranges lasts more than a month. Would be helpful to slow down the vandalisms if you provide an IP range we could block. I have reasons to believe this person also uses IP to vandalize (ranges 201.76.114.* and 201.76.115.*). As can be seen here, here, here and here (there are more in fact), those ranges vandalized the same articles than those accounts. Concerning one of his socks name, this user is probably an old account (stale) blocked for sockpuppetry.

Desculpe-me mas eu não entendi qual o motivo pela qua achas que esses usuários são sock puppet um dos outros. Poderia explicar? De preferência com diffs que comprovem as tuas suposições. Obrigada. Béria Lima msg 12:28, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Nem precisa.É só ver as contribs e comprovar.Veja que eles foram bloqueados pelo mesmo motivo.Tudo bem,vou colocar diffs: Capitão Feiticeiro

Interessante que,o IP foi bloqueado nos mesmos dias que o Electro comecou a sockear.No check do Feiticeiro,os gringos debateram sobre o Jolt e o Samurai.O AutoVolt vi nas contribs.Um cara da desciclopédia acha que ele é o Stuckkey.Interessante,que quem percebeu foi o Quintinense,antigo sockeador da wikipédia.Muito estranho.-- 14:37, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Encontrei provas de que eles seriam a mesma pessoa.Essa é a segunda vez que o checkuser dá errado.A primeira foi com um cara com um nome parecido com o do Stuckkey...No dia que o Electro se registrou,eu nem conhecia a wikipédia.Vou dar uma de verificador:

No princípio,Deus criou o céu,a terra e os seres humanos.No dia 19 de fevereiro,ElectroStatic Jolt nasce,em uma estrebaria.O usuário,comeca a editar,quando ele é ameacado por Teles,originando assim sua saída da wikipédia.No dia 08 de abril,ele volta atacando e vandalizando.

Argumentação e evidências iniciais

Ah sim...Vamos ao AutoVolt174...ElectroStatic Jolt existe na linha de brinquedos Transformers.O mais interessante é que o brinquedo se transforma em um Chevrolet Volt.Notem que o termo Volt está presente no nome do sock.Auto é auto de autobot.Um é o modo transformado e o outro o veículo.

O Capitão Feiticeiro e o Samurai...Bom,segundo a mensagem do Feiticeiro ao Pirata Bruxo,ele queria acompanhá-lo nos mares(copiar o nome).Daí ele dizia que era amigo do Electro e outras coisas,como o que ele disse nos Ps que ele era sock do seu amiguinho.Negou tudo,falando que era brincadeira.Até se vingou do Maddox,falando que ele era o JSSX,vulgo Fred Xavier.Ele resolveu se registrar na Desciclopédia para zoar com os usuários.

O Stuckkey foi discutido pelo Samurai Bruxo e mais um cara,que era sabe quem?Quintinense,antigo sockeador.Interessante é que na PU do Electro o própio Electro parabenizou uma mensagem de ataque do Stuckkey.

Demais comentários e hipóteses aqui.Encontrarei o cara na Desciclopédia,e xingá-lo da pior coisa possível.-- 21:33, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

  Done - The database does not have any data regarding wikt:pt:User:Diabo e Santo because it hasn't edited for some time. His account is therefore   Stale for CheckUser. Notwithstanding you may want to know that wikt:pt:User:Zélia Alves has engaged in vandalism as an anonymous user and for quite some time now (he/she seems to log-out of his/her account to vandalize and then re-login to continue editing the project without being discovered -- I can find vandalism since April 2011). Regards, -- Dferg ☎ talk 07:13, 23 May 2011 (UTC)
Thank you for the information. I have now blocked this person. Would it be possible to give me the IPs that he/she used to vandalize? Or if they are open proxies, just block the ranges? --ValJor 10:29, 23 May 2011 (UTC)
As far as I can see nor the IPs used nor the entire range (which is big) is not an open proxy. Blocking IPs in this case might not work I'm afraid. A tip: please do block account creation when blocking vandal accounts. Thanks, -- Dferg ☎ talk 12:08, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
Please only forget what I struck above and block the open proxy range which has been used for vandalism by this user. Regards, -- Dferg ☎ talk 18:50, 24 May 2011 (UTC)
Is there a way for me to determine if a given IP address is part of an open proxy? This user has attacked us today using the IPs and and I'm sure he's going to keep attacking us this way, so it would be great if I could determine myself if an IP is an open proxy. Otherwise I'll keep coming back here...
--ValJor 15:59, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
Yes, both are open proxys. CheckUser does not tell us which IPs are proxys or which ones are not; that needs manual checking. You can use google or robtex to help determine if a given IP is a proxy or not. The English Wikipedia has developed a WikiProject (en:WP:OP) where users can ask for proxy checks on given IPs.

    Dferg, about "Alves de Jesus", he only makes edits that resemble D&S's "hot topics": different ortographies for Brazil vs Portugal, and pre- vs post-"1990 Ortography Agreement". I have no suspicions about the other 2 users. Maybe ValJor can explain better. Malafaya 12:46, 27 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi dferg!
I explained this already but let's do it once again: this vandal is very persistent and very clever. He keeps coming back again and again using many different accounts. And he starts by doing apparently innocuous edits and then after some time, he starts the vandalizing. That's why we have to fight him over and over again. I really wish there was a way to stop him for good, I have better things to do than to try to control a misbehaved child.
Anyway, as Malafaya has already said, it's very clear that Alves_de_Jesus is another one of his sock puppets, the editing style is almost the same. I just want the CU confirmation to have something better than a hunch as the basis for blocking him.
In the case of Balamax, he got my attention for two things:
  1. first the vandal had created a sock puppet making fun of him a while ago (see this); this vandal has already done that in the past (insult one of his sock puppets to make us believe that it's not one of his puppets)
  2. and second, he (Balamax) had stayed away from the project for over a week and then suddenly made a modification right when the vandal was actively making modifications, too.
I'm not very sure that Balamax is another one of his puppets, but I would like CU confirmation just to be on the safe side.
In the case of Mareshenrique, my case is not so solid, he just seemed to be around when the vandal was active, it may be just coincidence, so I just want confirmation that my suspicion is unfounded.
Finally, I would like to ask a CU on Kaluekki. What is my case against him? Well, "kaluekki" is a Malayalam word from which the word caluete is derived and this word has just been added to the DB by user Alves_de_Jesus, who I suspect of being one of the puppets. Do you see now how clever this guy is?
Thanks for all your help so far. I just want to add something that I have said before: I don't come here asking for CUs for fun. If I ask for a CU, it's because I need one. And having to write long explanations each time ends up consuming a lot of time that I could be using to work on the project...
--ValJor 13:36, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
Hello ValJor. The reason to ask was because in past cases I handled I didn't remembered that he used this pattern and because the accounts you linked above seemed that they weren't doing anything wrong. Please note that I know that you're not requesting CU for fun and that ptwiktionary is suffering problems with this user since it was blocked and desysopped. Thanks to you, Malafaya and Striker for providing now very useful information to help in this case and, that said, this is   In progress... - Regards, -- Dferg ☎ talk 19:57, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
