Steward requests/Checkuser/2018-10



Status:    Not done

Guess who's back on my talk page on Meta (really, someone needs to semi-protect that indefinitely). Please run CU, block across all wikis. Drmies (talk) 02:43, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

Already blocked by Xaosflux and globally locked/talk page protected by RadiX; Anyway, this is in the wrong place; I am assuming it should be formatted and moved to Meta:Requests for CheckUser information probably. Alex Shih (talk) 03:02, 29 September 2018 (UTC)
Tagging as not done since it's dealt with. – Ajraddatz (talk) 22:28, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

Singer neel naik@mr.wikipedia

Vaibhav Santosh Naik and Singer neel naik are   Confirmed to Vicky s. Naik, Star King's Music Band is   Likely. Bhavesh Patil (Prem) is   Unrelated. – Ajraddatz (talk) 22:33, 8 October 2018 (UTC)


  Done: All three are   Unrelated. – Ajraddatz (talk) 22:30, 8 October 2018 (UTC)


  Not done - CheckUser can only connect accounts with IPs and each-other. Rangeblocks wouldn't help in this case either, since there would be a lot of collateral damage (other accounts that use those IP ranges). Your best option here is just to block the IPs as you see them, or set up abusefilters for the text/links they are adding. – Ajraddatz (talk) 16:07, 8 October 2018 (UTC)


अः and अ आ are   Stale. All other three accounts are   Likely. Ruslik (talk) 11:50, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

If there's "threats", then send to Trust and Safety. Please read CheckUser policy. Also, ping to @JSutherland (WMF) and Jalexander-WMF: --Alaa :)..! 05:02, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
Take a look at Threats of harm. Also note that we do not check single account. — regards, Revi 07:25, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
Thank you, kind sir. I mailed the emergency mail. you may close this request.--Nahum (talk) 09:46, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Simon 1996@zh.wikipedia

  • comment:behaviour not that similar should be the correct translation.--Cohaf (talk) 07:15, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Well like I said on the local discussion page, there is probably no merit to check. Both using machine translations and having the habit of removing other editor's comments on their talk page are not legitimate reasons when literally everything else is different. Alex Shih (talk) 08:17, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
    • Alex ShihThis check is well discussed and many users had the same opinion that is to check, I guess it will be best to go by consensus. Just to add, it is not removing comments but alteration of comments in a certain way that connects both. The translation above is not that accurate per say. I am sorry I didn't knew this was submitted that I would had presented the case better, but anyways the key locus of behavioural similarities are as follows: threats after being banned over email, poor machine translations, alteration of talk page messages, participation in contests in Chinese Wikipedia. I am sorry I can't type a better statement as I am currently on mobile for this entire month. --Cohaf (talk) 11:04, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
  • I didn't check the accounts, but all except the first are locked for cross-wiki abuse. – Ajraddatz (talk) 16:54, 18 October 2018 (UTC)


  • I would like to endorse this request. This has been a persistent zhwiki LTA doing cross wiki abuse (enwp, zhwp and jawp) with very clear behavioral patterns (egregious attacks/death threats etc). I think only the new account (富察瑯嬅) needs to be checked. Alex Shih (talk) 11:31, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
    • Endorse per WQL and Alex Shih. I seen and rollbacked some of the threats. They seems to be using IP also. If the collateral is not too big, a checkuser block on IP will be helpful also. @Antigng:can you help to coordinate this with stewards. Thanks much. --Cohaf (talk) 12:26, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

    • @MCC214:   Possible 富察瑯嬅 is 冏. The user's connection environment is similar with "冏" . but I can't say that is surely so.--rxy (talk) 06:32, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
      • Let's not ask anymore questions. The remaining work should be done locally to compare behavioral evidence again with this CU result. Alex Shih (talk) 06:47, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

  • no proper local discussion was done for this case yet, request to be placed on hold. --Cohaf (talk) 19:28, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Meta CU is used to only confirm a connection once behavioral evidence has been established, not to be used to see if there is technical evidence that connects these accounts, which is often not so reliable on its own. If there aren't any administrators taking action, perhaps behavioral wise it's not that similar in the first place. Alex Shih (talk) 09:47, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
    • exactly my point conveyed at zhwiki, I temporarily placed this on hold pending further discussion--Cohaf (talk) 11:10, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
For the references, I expect at least more than two or three days of discussion on non-urgent case, and (usually) do check if the discussion is mature enough. — regards, Revi 14:39, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
@-revi and Alex Shih:update: accounts duck blocked, but local sysop request a sleeper check. I don't have the rationale for the check yet.--Cohaf (talk) 12:50, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
If you are clear with what I'm talking about, local discussion hasn't ever been stopped for nearly half a month; in conclusion the discussion is not only "mature enough" but on the edge of turning stale. Moreover, different people and communities have different points of view of what is "Urgent" and what is not. I didn't mean to urge anyone, but please avoid turning CheckUser process into a marathon. --Super Wang on zhwiki (Share your opinions) 09:07, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
@-revi:as of now the master had made an unblock request for the local sysop duck block to be overturned, so now the CU results are crucial. please expedite based on this and I am now endorsing this request formally for the record.--Cohaf (talk) 16:35, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
Hey, (as an excuse) these days I have more work in real life, but this should've got done by few weeks ago, and I will do it tomorrow night (KST), unless someone beats me. — regards, Revi 16:45, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks -revi,--Cohaf (talk) 02:08, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
