Steward requests/Checkuser/2019-08


Θαλάσσιος Ασφόδελος@el.wikipedia

  Comment I'd appreciate a speedy and easy cooperation with Meta's admins, as I previously have experienced unreasonably severe delays when it comes to completing simple Checkuser requests. I fully understand that the nature of this page is definitely not too positive, but on the other hand administrators were elected and received their privileges to execute advanced processes in order to protect Wikipedia from harmful users and activities. Thanks in advance. Glucken123 (talk) 15:50, 1 August 2019 (UTC)

Meta admins cannot do CU. While most stewards are meta sysops also, it is their stewards hat which allows them to do CU. Hope you don't confuse the 2. Regards,--Cohaf (talk) 08:13, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

  Comment Such a CU is a waste of time, and kind of fishing. "Θαλάσσιος Ασφόδελος" is probably (simple ducktest) a reincarnation of "Υπάρχω" something that a CU won't verify as "Υπάρχω" is stale. There isn't really any evidence that "Θαλάσσιος Ασφόδελος" is related to any other of the acounts mentioned. Furthermore, all 6 of his reverts were not blind reverts. His comments were reverted (without any explanation) and he reverted back. An obvious trolls intervention in Θαλάσσιος Ασφόδελος's favor during the revert's isn't evidence against said acount.—Ah3kal (talk) 08:35, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

  Declined per Ah3kal's comments, I am not seeing clear connections between the behaviours of the accounts in question, and most on that list are stale. Please address any behaviour on the account in question using behavioural evidence. – Ajraddatz (talk) 10:52, 2 August 2019 (UTC)


  Done - no results on the CU. – Ajraddatz (talk) 13:32, 4 August 2019 (UTC)
Thanks Ajraddatz. Reported back.--Cohaf (talk) 13:34, 4 August 2019 (UTC)


  • Reason(s) is Request 1,1. is Request 2,2. is Request 3,3. is Request 4.--MCC214#ex umbra in solem 07:47, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Sorry for the very slow response on this. A note that I have seen this, and will process it once I get a minute later today. – Ajraddatz (talk) 10:52, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
  •   Done Some overlap between these accounts. Only potentially unblocked account I see is Dannylee0417, who is   Likely but you should evaluate the behavioural evidence before blocking, as he is from a well-used IP with other unrelated people on it, though does match the user agent of the LTA. – Ajraddatz (talk) 15:21, 5 August 2019 (UTC)


There is technical evidence for some of these accounts to be related. I've locked the accounts. – Ajraddatz (talk) 10:42, 17 August 2019 (UTC)


  •   Comment: Blocking their IP(s)/IP range(s) might be helpful. However, as a local sysop on zhwiki, I don't care about which of them are socks and which are not. That's because they are simply vand-only accounts and our responses could also be very simple: Revert their edits and Block them. --Tiger (talk) 09:11, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
  • I request to close this request as no discussion was active at zhwiki. --Hamish 11:12, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
    • @Hamish: Then please handle this locally, much appreciated. IAR   Not done(Feel free to revert if necessary)--Cohaf (talk) 12:26, 19 August 2019 (UTC)


  • As a local administrator, I reckon the request could be cancelled as there is no need to run the check on accounts could be ducks at my discretion. Besides, I may use AGF to neglect or even ignore these 2 accounts. --Hamish 11:30, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
