Steward requests/Checkuser/2018-08



  • Ach1ys is stale,also cross and delete it.--MCC214#Talk with me 06:08, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
    • As far as I know, it doesn't look like SiuMai have the habit of creating sleeper accounts (three previous checks this year by stewards in April, May and June all did not point to any additional accounts). According to the LTA page, majority of their disruption comes from editing through proxy IPs. I think this request should be declined. Alex Shih (talk) 07:17, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
      1. Alex Shih,SiuMai very active in zh:WP:NP with a sock of IP,but zh:WP:NP is Semi-protection now[1],so SiuMai can create the account to active in zh:WP:NP.
      2. -revi,MidnightSun2400 is stale at 7 July[2],Ach1ys is stale at 29 July[3],also,DivotusMaximus is stale at 3 August shortly[4],so if you can check,please check before 3 August.

  •   Done - checked the most recent account, no sleepers found. – Ajraddatz (talk) 19:35, 2 August 2018 (UTC)


On hold to give time for discussion. — regards, Revi 14:30, 29 July 2018 (UTC)
Actually let me admit my mistake. A zhwiki user pointed out to me that the similarities are apparent to those who are familiar with the editing patterns of certain sockmaster. I've ran a check on TaiwanofChina at enwiki as they were editing disruptively there, and both Changshaone and Zhenggnehz appeared in the same range. A local check would probably be useful. There is also a trail that leads to the original sockmaster, something that I will discuss locally on zhwiki. Alex Shih (talk) 08:15, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
Just to note that the local discussion about this request has been closed. Alex Shih (talk) 08:46, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
By the "closed", you mean the local decided not to persuade the SRCU? — regards, Revi 09:41, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
Yes. I think this SRCU request can be closed. Alex Shih (talk) 09:52, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
Not done, per local discussion not in favor of this check. — regards, Revi 09:56, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
Actually the entire closure should be: Since English Wiki CU Alex Shih did a check on enwiki, the zhwiki community used this CU evidence to determine that these are socks. So it sort of   Done in a way, and the blocks on zhwiki also indicated a CU block.--Cohaf (talk) 19:31, 4 August 2018 (UTC)


No discussion, no check on zhwiki. — regards, Revi 20:56, 30 July 2018 (UTC)
@-revi: This check is for zhwikisource and not zhwiki. It looks like zhwikisource doesn't have a discussion area for checkuser requests. -★- PlyrStar93 Message me. 21:17, 30 July 2018 (UTC)
Nice catch <_< Yeah, zhwikisource is unrelated here. Sorry! — regards, Revi 21:21, 30 July 2018 (UTC)
I am genuinely curious here: in smaller wikis, is it grounds for CU when users copy another user's user page format? Alex Shih (talk) 17:43, 31 July 2018 (UTC)
I also think this is too weak evidence to do CU. I'd prefer to see more evidence to continue. (Even though I don't read Chinese ;0;) — regards, Revi 09:58, 1 August 2018 (UTC)
  Declined for lack of evidence; worth noting that 創建創建 was blocked on a number of wikis as a sock. The other account doesn't appear to be connected from behavioural evidence. – Ajraddatz (talk) 19:32, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

  Comment Barselona99 may be stale now. No edits in azwiki after January 2018. -★- PlyrStar93 Message me. 00:28, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
Barselona99 is   Stale, but then   CheckUser is not for fishing. — regards, Revi 06:53, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

  •   Confirmed: Sourscecontent1 + all usernames in target.

  No comment with respect to IP address(es), checks cannot be done. — regards, Revi 12:59, 13 August 2018 (UTC)


  Confirmed. There is a long list of additional socks: Jackpers, Vosough1r, Borhan1998, Shahravand, Omid9br, Bahram1br, Hadikhorsandi, Sorooshan, Geobat79, Kurdistan1985a, Lahij9999, Iran2000b, Perspoolisa10, Rambod9, Delawankurd, Lahijanipour, Zanairani1, Mehrdadian80, Zanyar1, Sloba90. Ruslik (talk) 20:03, 14 August 2018 (UTC)


With HU having just 1 edits to compare, this is clearly going to be   Inconclusive. Please resubmit when they have more activity. — regards, Revi 06:21, 16 August 2018 (UTC)

Thanks--AntanO 01:16, 24 August 2018 (UTC)


Was this request discussed anywhere in kawiki. Ruslik (talk) 18:14, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
Yes, we talked about this at the forum where the elections took place, as well as on my talk page.--Mehman 97 20:40, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
Ezrra, Qwelly and Kakha Dalier are   Confirmed to be the same user. Lshlsh is   Stale. Deu is probably   Unrelated. It is   Likely that გიორგი ჩუბინიძე and გიო ოქრო are same user but they are   Unrelated to other accounts. It is   Possible that Gobrona and Giorgi Balakhadze are the same user as Ezrra. Ruslik (talk) 19:28, 25 August 2018 (UTC)
Ruslik can you tell exactly from these two (Gobrona and Giorgi Balakhadze) which is most like a user Ezrra? Or they are all the same user? Thanks --Mehman 97 14:52, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
I do not know. Ruslik (talk) 20:45, 26 August 2018 (UTC)


Can you please provide other sock accounts that is similar behavior as the master account PheonixRo for stewards to attest the check? CU won't disclosure out that person IP addresses information on the public. SA 13 Bro (talk) 21:03, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
Not sure...but I refer to the user, who have to intimidate or harass main or other contributors. See this: [9], [10]... 21:14, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
  No comment with respect to IP address(es), check cannot be run. — regards, Revi 06:15, 27 August 2018 (UTC)


  Confirmed as well as HeraldFranciisco. Ruslik (talk) 20:24, 27 August 2018 (UTC)
