Steward requests/Checkuser/2018-11



Pulled all relevant data but I need some information from local administrator with regards to interpreting the data. Putting on hold. — regards, Revi 03:28, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
Not admin with me,but local administrator Outlooxp said Haoloaholoa was not sockpuppets of C7(zh:User_talk:Outlookxp#Wikipedia:元維基用戶查核協助請求#Haoloaholoa) although Steward_requests/Checkuser/2018-10#Haoloaholoa@zh.wikipedia said Haoloaholoa are sockpuppets of C7,because Haoloaholoa can write political entry and write so much entry,but C7 was not,and feel Haoloaholoa edit was not similar of C7,also,Namgalsipsclar is do the unblock request,said it was not sockpuppets of C7[1],but local administrator is   It looks like a duck to me of C7 and block it,Naivensimple edit is similar of C7[2][3][4][5]'[6](日「治」換成日「據」(日「治」change to 日「據」))(see zh:Wikipedia:持续出没的破坏者/User:Copyangry7fcvc#編輯傾向(C7's editorial tendency),投票大军好棒棒 only one edit[7],is Single-purpose account(SPA),C7 usually used SPA,such as User:Anti228[8](confirmed are sockpuppets of C7[9][10][11]),also this user only one edit on it[12],other's are confirmed at Steward_requests/Checkuser/2018-10#Haoloaholoa@zh.wikipedia,I hope re check this result.--MCC214Talk with me#Contributions with me 08:32, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
I did not find any account that was not in check request, how can you draw the conclusion I said it was C7? — regards, Revi 10:21, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
Zhong-Gneoz are sockpuppets of user TaiwanofChina and Changshaone(Steward_requests/Checkuser/2018-09#Zhenggnehz@zh.wikipedia), admin Alex Shih(then Alex Shih is checkuser in said user TaiwanofChina and Changshaone are sockpuppets of C7[13][14].--MCC214Talk with me#Contributions with me 11:06, 2 November 2018 (UTC)


  • Refer to Last month's Haoloaholoa check for the accounts in previous check. Not much has been changed.
    • Haoloaholoa and others had some edit but that does not change the result.
  • 投票大军好棒棒   Possible with Haoloaholoa group.
  • Naivensimple: technically   Unrelated with Haoloaholoa group.
  • Namgalsipsclar: technically   Unrelated

Each group is unrelated with other group unless otherwise stated.

  • -revi,requests said 'please also do a local CU block on all the IP addresses (recommended /18 or /16 block) found used by the aforementioned accounts. There are local evidences that some of the banned users in the list are actively evading blocks using IPs'.--MCC214Talk with me#Contributions with me 10:59, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
Multiple networks, some broader than the limit. — regards, Revi 11:02, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
Thanks -revi as usual. Closed and for archiving. Nothing more to be done here (hopefully for the time being)--Cohaf (talk) 17:51, 3 November 2018 (UTC)



  • "Dragoon17cc" and "Vengence2018" are   Likely.
  • "Vengence2018" and "暖城2016-02-06" are   Confirmed.

  Likely However, there's no enough data sample, so make your decision with behavioral data --Alaa :)..! 13:02, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for your time!--Udha (talk) 22:05, 4 November 2018 (UTC)


Cannot comment on IP, so there's nothing to check. — regards, Revi 15:17, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
IP is making similar edits to the registered user, some in the same pages. --Buggia 15:28, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
You can make your own determination about IPs, however I cannot check IPs. — regards, Revi 15:31, 2 November 2018 (UTC)


  Not done German Wikipedia has its own checkusers. Ruslik (talk) 12:09, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: He switched from the English-language Wikipedia to the German one, as he got blocked there. His logs show that he creates his accounts in the English-language Wikipedia and then switches to the German ones respectively.--Sonra Mint (talk) 16:45, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
We do not check on a project where local checkuser exists. Please contact German Wikipedia CheckUsers. — regards, Revi 17:03, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
@-revi: My German is not that good. Could you do it for me, or some of the Admins who can speak German?--Sonra Mint (talk) 17:14, 6 November 2018 (UTC)
I cannot replace you, nor I can represent you. I don't know German either. — regards, Revi 10:22, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Comment. There is no obvious breach of policy here to justify CU, and there is definitely no request of sysop action at ro.wp. The accounts have not been used simultaneously and have not participated at the same discussion.Andrei Stroe (talk) 15:26, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

  • In short, the accounts here (and the request below) are duck blockeed as socks of LTA C7. Seeking CU confirmation as well as sleepers as to revert vandalism by undiscovered sock. This is a request by local sysop Outlookxp. --Cohaf (talk) 17:50, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Have any steward here?There are four requests with zh.wikipedia when steward should do,also,there and below had relationship as soon as possible.--MCC214Talk with me#Contributions with me 10:25, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

These accounts are   Confirmed. There are also the following accounts which are confirmed but are unblocked locally:

Almost all of the abuse relating to these accounts is coming from a IPv6 range. I will privately contact a zhwiki admin so the range can be blocked. – Ajraddatz (talk) 17:21, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Thanks Ajraddatz,reported to zhwiki irc.All sleepers blocked. What a catch of sleepers. Thanks.--Cohaf (talk) 20:36, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Bikinootag(Copyangry7fcvc 2)@zh.wikipedia

  • see above - same explanation.--Cohaf (talk) 17:48, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
  • See above I said.--MCC214Talk with me#Contributions with me 10:27, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
  •   Done - all accounts confirmed, except for Hhjhoken where the CU evidence is inconclusive. Please evaluate that one based on behavioural evidence. Additionally, the following sleeper accounts have been identified:

There is another range that should be blocked; I will reach out to another zhwiki administrator. – Ajraddatz (talk) 00:07, 14 November 2018 (UTC)


  Done The data from the master is too old for comparisons to current possible socks. Katragjyshi and GrepfrutAroma are   Likely operated by the same person as the Tunxhi account. The IP range that all of these accounts use is heavily used by unrelated activity, so please evaluate behavioural evidence when making blocks related to this case. – Ajraddatz (talk) 06:17, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: Have you noticed that there the data on CUwiki? --Alaa :)..! 08:10, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
Yes. It doesn't add anything else to my findings. – Ajraddatz (talk) 16:57, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

Thank you. Very prompt action. --AntanO 16:50, 14 November 2018 (UTC)


  • In short, the accounts are duck blocked as per socks of LTA. Just wanting a CU confirmation as well as a sleeper check given the master is prolifically creating socks daily, let us put all the socks back into the wardrobe. --Cohaf (talk) 17:48, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
  •   Done the checkuser results are   Inconclusive. Please base your blocking decisions on behavioural evidence. – Ajraddatz (talk) 19:29, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Thanks Ajraddatz,all are duck blocked before this request, reported back, nothing else to do here.--Cohaf (talk) 23:52, 17 November 2018 (UTC)


  • @Cohaf:I think you are referring to the talk page at your ZH Wikipedia account, so I fixed the link for you. - まっすろな未来 (talk) 09:08, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
  •   Done - the accounts use a variety of widely-used IPs. The following accounts are   Confirmed in addition to the ones listed: Vicky980128, RTTTTTTTTTTTTTR. The following account is   Likely: Ken625. Please evaluate the behavioural evidence. – Ajraddatz (talk) 19:32, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

  Stale Titanic FM SRL HDTV SDTV HD SD 1080i 720p 576i HD as the last edit of this account on March 2018. Technically, there's no socks for Titanic FM. Please base your blocking decisions on behavioral evidence --Alaa :)..! 17:36, 18 November 2018 (UTC)

Thank you.--Kunok Kipcsak (talk) 20:19, 18 November 2018 (UTC)

Comment: Same sock requesting checkuser, same fishing attempt, as per comment of the closing checkuser on 12 September 2018. --1l2l3k (talk) 17:50, 21 November 2018 (UTC)


  • The Zh-wikipedia admins (e.g. Zhxy 519) refused to address a series of the long-term personal personal abuses (>50 times/week) to me (where I submitted the WP:VIP three times without any resolution), but likely to restrict (and support for attacking) the contributors from China Mainland via superiority or administration authority. WMF official should be careful that not becoming a knife of clique struggles. Thanks. Walter Grassroot (talk) 01:22, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
    • on hold pending local discussion.--Cohaf (talk) 01:40, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

      • Since for 27 August 2015,金牌雄鹰 comfirmed is 嘀嘀嘀 sock[17],but 金牌雄鹰 said it was not 嘀嘀嘀 sock(see [18],and some admin unblocked it after [19],but 嘀嘀嘀 is stale.--MCC214Talk with me#Contributions with me 10:24, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
    • No forum shopping please. Per concensus, please discuss it locally first or just withdraw it. And, I have found a CU result showing that 滴滴滴 was unrelated to 金牌雄鹰. Sounds interesting. --Mend My Way 14:31, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Spurious request that should be declined is my take on this. No discussion, no valid check rationale and local issues shouldn't have any place in meta. Do note that this case is also at zhwiki AIV. Thus, FORUMSHOPPING is somewhat true.--Cohaf (talk) 00:07, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
We do not consider requests for zhwiki without valid community discussion. Community knows what is exempted, so I won't repeat. — regards, Revi 03:31, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
고맙습니다. --Super Wang on zhwiki (Share your opinions) 08:17, 22 November 2018 (UTC)


  Done - there is no technical evidence that the accounts are related. Please consider behavioural evidence when placing blocks. – Ajraddatz (talk) 17:24, 23 November 2018 (UTC)


User:Iskenderije above is a sock as a checkuser here already confirmed. See above. I reported him as usual, so he might be a bit angry and wants to retaliate by making personal attacks. As for this particular request, it seems that user:Amarakuja has copy-pasted it from previous troll requests posted on this page by troll users. user:Amarakuja was blocked on SQwiki for being a sock see here and shouldn't be taken serious. Regards!--Udha (talk) 22:03, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
User:Udha just logged in with another sock User:Udha1 turning upside down the whole SQwiki with obvious biased charged without any common sense behind all this, turning SQwiki into a battleground where revenge and petty approach are the only criteria. -- 10:58, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
  Completed @Amarakuja: apologies for the slow response time here. I've done a few checks, and there are no shared IP addresses between the accounts that I can see. Most of these accounts have no edits within the last three months, so I cannot see their IPs anyway (the data is deleted after three months). If the edit warring is still a problem, you can protect the articles that are targeted, design an abuse filter for common phrases that the vandals use, or just block their accounts on sight. Sorry I can't be of more help. – Ajraddatz (talk) 17:30, 23 November 2018 (UTC)


Regarding point 2:   CheckUser is not for fishing. — regards, Revi 17:31, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
Regarding point 1: Given that Special:CentralAuth/1Kasandra is a fully unified global account then yes, the Wikipedia and Wikisource users are the same. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 18:19, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
I guess nothing more needs to be done here?--Cohaf (talk) 00:12, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
Correct, closing as such. @Janezdrilc: if there is active abuse going on with two or more socks from this user, please come back and we'll be able to help more. – Ajraddatz (talk) 05:40, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for now. --Janezdrilc (talk) 12:51, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
