I am not a steward, and I toggled status to "local handled". If any steward objects, they can roll my edit back and toggle by themselves. Thank you. --Super Wang hates PC You hate, too? 00:53, 1 November 2020 (UTC)

@Sotiale: Any update on this? --Rschen7754 02:28, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
Recently, there have been many users who have contacted me for updates. This request is still under review; Upon completion of the review, the decision will be made immediately. --Sotiale (talk) 12:03, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
It is of course interesting to read Tgeorgescu (talk) 20:08, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
Based on the data that Vodomar published, which I have seen before they were hidden, I made my own analysis of the results. IMHO, it proves beyond reasonable doubt that these are indeed sockpuppets. You can find my analysis here: User:Lasta/CU38 (permalink). Please make an additinal check regarding day/night IP ranges and publish the results. --Lasta (talk) 15:04, 30 October 2020 (UTC)
Let me just add the following: the identity of the user behind these accounts should be absolutely certain based on the evidence made available to the stewards some time ago. While in my opinion the evidence is incontrovertible, its interpretation is not necessarily straightforward; if there are doubts about this, may the CU please contact me by email. GregorB (talk) 16:13, 30 October 2020 (UTC)
I myself am straightforward user and contributor on (see my history) - nevertheless I must confirm above accusations against user Kubura. Sadly but trustworthy. See recent changes and accusations on - for translation, if needed I am more than glad to assist. Kind regards --Mark7747 (talk) 16:32, 30 October 2020 (UTC)
I updated User:Lasta/CU38 with first part of the story - about what made me suspect those 37 users in the first place. Please read the whole story, make additional checks and finally decide do you find these arguments convincing or not. --Lasta (talk) 10:37, 3 November 2020 (UTC)

Just to be clear, it cannot be confirmed that these users are indeed socks. What I can say, however, is that there is concrete technical evidence supporting the suspicion of either sockpuppetry or meatpuppetry. This is because of a series of coincidences that are very hard to believe. If you were to ask me what are the odds that these users are linked to Kubura strictly from a technical point of view, I would answer as it follows:

  •   Likely: Anfiets, Arraque, Cvicang, Dvastaorla, Fleezer, Hergel, ImeldoMax, Kartervaen, Kumordinar Žorž, Neadin, Radion, Rikovers, Šedrvan, Stijenor NGC, Tobaccobox, Tomec, Uršul, Verud, Zerukruhaivina
  •   Possible: Demet, Gjiuh, Gretim, Jarebika, Leteći oleandar, Malatrad, Orašnik, TekstViler, Vinko Ml.
  •   Unlikely: XaneZeggi
  •   Unrelated: Umuthi GayndeGi
  •   Stale: Donher, Hari Tre, Kutni Rez, MairMoon, Pantagana, SkelaLeop, Soljenko

It should be noted that the distinction between possible and probable is based on more than just the underlying IP addresses, and is meant to reflect, to some extent, a lack of meaningful data. Given that the deceptive use of such a large number of accounts may well undermine the usual community processes, it is my recommendation that especially all the above users who are likely to have a connection with Kubura be treated accordingly.--Sakretsu (炸裂) 13:34, 7 November 2020 (UTC)

Sakretsu: Short & straight: Thanks! On behalf of community. Best --Mark7747 (talk) 20:21, 7 November 2020 (UTC)
Thanks Sakretsu. Let me just note two more things. There was also a check reportedly done in mid-May, so cross-checking the results might be of benefit, if it wasn't done already. Second, the accounts in question took part in the 2020 steward election as well as in the Croatian Wikipedia RfC, so this may qualify now as cross-wiki sockpuppeting, with potentially more severe repercussions.

Without commenting on the merits of this request, I note that the requestor is currently blocked indefinitely on sq.wikipedia. That makes me unease to continue with the analysis as I don't think we should honor CheckUser requests for wikis in which their requestors are not in good standing. This request is therefore provisionally denied unless an administrator or other established user from sq.wikipedia in good standing asks that this check be indeed performed.

Notifying administrators Liridon and Olsi for their opinion. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:56, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
I haven't been active recently, but I just had a look at their edits and they have similar edits, such as replacing ç and ć with q without prior discussion or changing article titles to less known ones. Saklanan gerçekler has been warned twice about that by an admin but never stopped, so I guess it would be good to check if these accounts are managed by Goelia. --Olsi (talk) 17:06, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

@Sotiale: Only in my POV, what Jusjih said in the past days:
  1. "Longway22的言行酷似Patlabor Ingram,所以要预防性请各位注意不要招募和操作真人傀儡。" (lit: The statements of Longway22 are damnly like Patlabor Ingram, so we should ask every one to refrain from recruiting and controlling the meatpuppets.)
  2. "预防性请各位注意不要招募和操作真人傀儡,不是指责谁。查核用户是避免一人滥用多账户,不同真人傀儡。" (lit: As a refrain warning to every one, please do not recruit and control the meatpuppets, I'm not pointing anyone. Checkuser is to avoid someone to abuse many accounts, not avoid meatpuppets.)

--Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 15:16, 14 November 2020 (UTC)

If this investigation is necessary, I hope that Jusjih will directly explain the need to us. Depending on whether this is MEAT or multiple accounts, the need for investigation will vary. --Sotiale (talk) 12:50, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

  • cc@Jusjih: --SCP-2000 09:38, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
    When we did not yet have clear policies to remove an administrator, Patlabor Ingram claimed that negotiation has failed, thus starting a vote against Zhxy 519 on 2020-10-15. Our policy would be voting for or against a candidate for 14 days. On 2020-10-29, I questioned if the consensus has been built to remove with 6 supports, 5 oppositions, and 3 being neutral [2], and on the same day Midleading as my fellow sysop advised temporarily keeping Zhxy 519's adminship [3]. Yet Patlabor Ingram and Longway22 would keep pushing their propaganda and think that only removing Zhxy 519 will be acceptable, especially after 2020-10-29 in an "unapproved extension", thus assuming bad faith. Then I support someone else requesting this check as my preventive warning about paid edits and against meat-puppets did not work.--Jusjih (talk) 03:31, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
