because this is wiki auto-transform,no Source code.I am sorry--Red16 (talk) 06:18, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
Could we have some more details on the attacks on other contributors and a list of pages where these accounts where used to violate the 3RR ? Thanks. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 18:21, 4 January 2013 (UTC)
This User,This account Marvel Avengers Alliance is his main account,now(dec.2012-jan.2013-). I Think his last main account is 法蘭克斯洛斯.
You can visit Marvel Avengers Alliance's user contribution and his talk page history.link about he attacks other wiki contributors.in edit summary,them all chineses.
for example,he curse user ArikamaI is a idiot.becasue user ArikamaI is TVB Project Counter-Vandalism Unit members.very Ugly.he cursed almost everyone of the TVB Project Counter-Vandalism Unit members.
This thing is a tag match.this user,one account is his main account (a period of time.this main account is always change) and if one account is main account,another account is puppet account.
This user use different account edit one wiki page,tag match with us. so you maybe look like no any account violate the 3RR in a days.This is false appearance.he ensure his any accounts no violate the 3RR in a days.if no account can use(a period of time),he will change to IP user.
We (I and another TVB Project Counter-Vandalism Unit members and some zhwp admin) think them (list user) all one user.
thanks.--Red16 (talk) 05:33, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Many of the IPs resolve to the City University of Hong Kong, and so technical evidence will not be that helpful in those cases. However, in my opinion, based on the technical evidence:

SallyIMHV@en.wikiversity

Status:    Done

Please consider investigating this spambot. I think it might be related to HomerHorn at the English Wikiquote (see its userpage there). I know for sure I've seen another one like these before, but I can't remember where. Anyway, I've requested a CU investigation for HomerHorn at the English Wikiquote (permalink) and I've asked them to share the results with the stewards, so these two spambots can be compared. Mathonius (talk) 04:40, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

I stumbled upon Ignacio956 (contr · deleted · block · log · block log · CA · guc · checkuser · lwcheckuser) at id.wiktionary. Their pattern is similar: creating a userpage with a short introduction, then <br><br>, and a link to a page linking to the actual spam. For example, id:wikt:Ignacio956 led to [4], which led to quik4.com, which contained advertisements for car insurances, "build a shed" plans, coleslaw, etc. Mathonius (talk) 05:26, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
HomerHorn and SallyIMHV are   Confirmed
Ignacio956 can not be confirmed based on the CU evidence alone. The bot uses different proxies and UA strings but sometimes leaks xff informations.

최철훈@ko.wikipedia

Status:    Done

최철훈@kowiki was blocked because He/She ignored all discussion about his/her fake editing. After this, 김순연@kowiki appeared and did edit same field with same pattern. Because of same editing pattern, 김순연@kowiki also blocked. And recently, 정해임@kowiki started editing, but editing field isn't same(Of course, figure field is same but 최철훈/김순연 edited pages of baseball players). I highly suspect 정해임@kowiki is related to blocked users. The evidence is family relations map. 김순연@kowiki made himself/herself userpage and added his/her family relations map. See it (deleted edit because of non-public personal information). You can find '아들 : 최철훈(崔哲熏)'(en: son : 최철훈). 정해임@kowiki also make his/her userpage with family relations map, See it.
