Um... how about blocking their band? --Sotiale (talk) 07:51, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale: That is exactly what I wish to do, but I am uncertain whether it is allowed by relevant policies. P.S. the sock master has used 4 IP addresses to edit anonymously previously, each in a different band. H78c67c (talk) 16:02, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
Judging by their anonymous edits, I believe that they are based in Japan. I have updated the local LTA page accordingly. Please correct me if I am wrong. H78c67c (talk) 00:31, 1 September 2020 (UTC)
Good. First of all, I will process this request within today, and I will contact you through the relevant procedures in this regard! --Sotiale (talk) 02:43, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

@संजीव कुमार: Hello, संजीव कुमार. Could you please explain again what you mean? If you don't think sockpuppets, why did you post this request to SRCU? (Because we have no way of knowing if they are meatpuppets). Or are you suspicious of xwiki promotion? --Sotiale (talk) 07:44, 1 September 2020 (UTC)
@Sotiale: I suspect and I think so. But I wrote another sentence because I may be wrong as human can make mistakes. I didn't check for xwiki spam but yes they are doing promotion on hiwiki. If my reason is sufficient for sockpuppet test, please do so. If it doesn't match the requirements, I shall take back my nomination.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 07:55, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

Pratap Pandit@en.wikipedia

Hi. Please visit en:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations. Where local checkusers are active, we can't do checkuser unless in special circumstances. --Sotiale (talk) 06:35, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Sotiale But checkuser cannot be used on English Wikipedia on this user since his earlier socks were blocked more than 90 days ago. But since he was active on Meta Wikimedia about 70 days ago it is well possible that Meta can successfully run a checkuser and compare "Guy Foxx" with "Pratap Pandit". Aman.kumar.goel (talk) 16:54, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
Meta also has local CheckUsers, for meta checkuser information you need to ask at: Meta:Requests for CheckUser information. Majavah talk/contribs/sul 16:57, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
It looks that one of the sock of this sockfarm was active on Wikiquote until 5 July. Is it possible to get technical details from there? Sounds like this is a meta-wiki and enwikiquote CU request.. Can I Log In (talk) 23:19, 1 September 2020 (UTC)


Just use incubator in language code form and empty project shortcut/use wikimedia in project shortcut form. And I refrain this request myself to avoid COI in the project, so I ask other stews to handle it. --Sotiale (talk) 12:50, 30 August 2020 (UTC)
Ah, I'm doing community-related work on incubator local. Therefore, I am refraining from this request. This means that I have not reviewed the adequacy of this request. I hope other stews will take care of it! --Sotiale (talk) 02:39, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

@Mdaniels5757: Hello. the enwiki checkusers team can contact commons checkusers team and obtain information when they deem necessary. We don't do checkuser where local checkusers exist, unless there are special cases. Have you contacted the enwiki checkusers team? --Sotiale (talk) 05:16, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Done. Spambots use multiple proxies or VPNs distributedly, so even if they spam one site, they use different proxies or VPNs. Perhaps there is an increase in spams targeting commons. If it is posted on SRG, it will be lwcu, so please post it on SRG next time :D --Sotiale (talk) 13:43, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
