Spambots on Wikispecies

I've locked all three as they are definitely spambots. The accounts are not obviously linked and they don't appear to be open proxies. QuiteUnusual (talk) 14:42, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

  Not done We do not identify users with ip addresses. Ruslik (talk) 16:02, 4 December 2016 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: I beg your pardon, but I am aware of at least one case, during which the checkuser was able to link a user with an IP ("I have done this anyway to check if any more abuse had been taking place"). Why isn't there the ability to execute the procedure in this case? --Κόκκινος Ποταμός (talk) 16:43, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

  Not done. For requesting a check on Meta, use Meta:Requests for CheckUser information. It's not possible to check an edit from February. Data is not stored that long. -- Tegel (Talk) 11:04, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

  Confirmed. I've already blocked the IP range with an expiry time of three months as there is a huge amount of sockpuppets on it, though there may be a small collateral damage. Please pay attention on this. Regards, RadiX 13:43, 16 December 2016 (UTC)



Group 1: Criminal Angel, Κροβρεντζίδο, Μολύβι, Δύο χιλιάδες δεκαέξι and Μπαλάνος: all   Confirmed. Βάσω is   Likely the same user.

Group 2: ΣΕ ΘΕΛΩ and Giorgos456 are   Likely the same user.

Group 1 and Group 2:   Possible.

User:RadiX, Κροβρεντζίδο and ΣΕ ΘΕΛΩ are confirmed as puppets by duck test (these two accounts are the only to have mentioned the same non-existing political party, among many other behavior traits). Thanks for the other users revealed. --C messier (talk) 17:22, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
