  • @AmandaNP: Money174/Alwaysmoney removed contents from w:zh:维吾尔族 without trying to improve it, and claimed that they will "continue to do vand until the article is locked forever". 流浪的笛声 left their own opinions on w:zh:Talk:维吾尔族, w:zh:Talk:长征 and several other talk pages which are not contributory towards Wikipedia. 蟲蟲飛 later blocked 流浪的笛声 as "a sock of Money174/Alwaysmoney" per their non-contributory contents on these talk pages, and 流浪的笛声 appealed a block review.

I, Lordluka99, hereby declare that I do not stand behind any of the accounts in Group 1 and Group 2. I swear that are.not my sockpuppets. Please check carefully. There is no posibillity those accounts is mine. Thank you in advanse
Dear Lordluka, do you happen to visit this page on a daily basis? How come? :-)--Sakretsu (炸裂) 12:25, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
Dear Sakretsu, because User Croxyz send me screenshot of this Check on Discord. I didnt know what was happening until I read you are suspecting me of creating 20 accounts. Now not a single account in Groups 1 and 2 has any coonections with me, so I would like to know how did you connect them with me (if possible) and can you Check again carefully to prevent any mistake. P.s. what do you mean by "daily basis"? Hadnt visited Meta in months.

Group 1 definitely shares some IP ranges with Lordluka. A few ranges are different, but geolocation is still a match. User:Čitatelj0, who has been locally blocked as a sock of Lordluka per WP:DUCK, also finds its rightful collocation within Group 1. Moreover, both Group 1 and Lordluka contribute to the same pages (not only on Wikipedia), use emojis, and harass User:Mark7747 and User:Kanikosen in particular. At this point all the accounts are to be locked anyway, and since Group 1 already looks like a duck to local sysops, distinguishing it from Lordluka does not seem to be of any particular benefit.--Sakretsu (炸裂) 22:28, 18 April 2021 (UTC)


  Not done If there is no question as to whether these users are Niki0327 or not, it is not possible, except in very limited cases, to be solely for investigating sleepers. As far as I can understand, this user has a pattern and you are well looking for this user according to the pattern. I couldn't find a good reason to do sleepers investigation from the description you provided. Therefore, it cannot be considered that the need for investigation is sufficient, so it is marked as not done. --Sotiale (talk) 09:04, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
@Sotiale:Then could I just looking for if they are same group only?--Cmsth11126a02 (talk) 09:29, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
Since there is no need to process this request, no check will proceed. Anything as to whether the same group or this user matches any user's data is possible only when there is a need for investigation. --Sotiale (talk) 10:20, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

The discussion is on zhwiki, but is there a reason why the domain is yuewiki? --Sotiale (talk) 01:42, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
Well, only the first account has been (automatically-)created on zhwiki, which means the other 2 are non-actionable for zhwiki. And the discussion is originally on my talk page, before being brought up in zhwiki, where the LTA is the most active. H78c67c (talk) 02:16, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
@H78c67c: Looking at the records, the 3 accounts you presented (of course, the first account has a typo) are the same user. Is there any particular reason to want to know if they are 冏? --Sotiale (talk) 04:50, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
@Sotiale: Sorry about the typo. It was a Chinese character conversion issue. A user suspected that these might be Special:CentralAuth/芄蘭's socks instead. They also suspected that there might be sleeper accounts. So a check to see the connections of these accounts (particularly the first one) to 冏 would clear things up a bit hopefully. H78c67c (talk) 04:55, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
@H78c67c: Okay, thanks. But if 芄蘭 is suspicious, why don't they ask 芄蘭's account to be investigated? The target account is very important when it comes to revealing the relationship. --Sotiale (talk) 05:12, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
Personally, since 芄蘭 has no visible history of attacking N1 directly, I doubt such suspicions myself, to the point I left 芄蘭 out and anticipated a stronger tie with 冏 instead. The insults used and the style of attack matches the LTA description quite well. But since according to the same page, 冏 sometimes recruit MEAT, and that 冏 has no history of attacking N1 directly on yuewiki, I feel like a check to investigate their relationship would supply evidence that 冏's activity is spreading to yuewiki as well. And if a connection between these accounts and 冏 is established, I believe it would benefit future checks related to 冏 restricted to yuewiki. H78c67c (talk) 05:28, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
