Stopshalon@zh.wikipedia

Could you please provide some evidence, including diffs, of this pattern that you see. Simply removing speedy deletion templates and editing the same topic area is not enough for a check. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 22:26, 29 June 2021 (UTC)
@AmandaNP: Here are the examples:
  • In the edits of Stopshalon (e.g 1, 2), they wrote like "Character A is the son and the adopted nephew of Character B", "Character B is the mother and the adopted aunt of Character A", and so on. This is a really weird way of writing relationships between characters in Chinese (and I believe even in English): if Character A is already the son of Character B, why would anyone care about their relationship in adoption after Character B's sister adopts Character A?
  • The editing behavior above is commonly and only seen used by long-term abuser Wen Ng Ng (e.g 1, 2). Itcfangye (talk) 14:40, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
    By the way, Reefssump and Rarewing are confirmed socks of Wen Ng Ng. Itcfangye (talk) 14:43, 30 June 2021 (UTC)
  • I added Lookserse to the CU list because they tried to add back abuse edits made by Wen Ng Ng's socks (e.g [1]). Their other edits also share similarity with the LTA. Itcfangye (talk) 02:35, 3 July 2021 (UTC)

All 4 accounts (Stopshalon, Reefssump, Rarewing, and Lookserse) are   Confirmed directly back to Wen Ng Ng themselves among several other already blocked socks. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 17:44, 4 July 2021 (UTC)

@AmandaNP: I think it would be helpful if you could list out the checked users for us to verify that there were not unjustified blocks. --LuciferianTalk 12:45, 5 July 2021 (UTC)
The list is quite long and would take some time, plus CU never guarantees that all the socks will be listed by the nature of how CU works. If you still want the list, it'll have to wait till I have some extra free time to sit down and do it. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 02:21, 6 July 2021 (UTC)

MonsterHunter32@en.wikiquote

  •   Stale MonsterHunter32
  •   Declined to comment on the IP
  •   Additional information needed in the form of diffs for MonstrumVenandiXXXII & ZeGoyMan -- Amanda (aka DQ) 04:11, 13 July 2021 (UTC)

Thank you AmandaNP for the reply.

User:MonstrumVenandiXXXII is the exact translation of Monsterhunter32.
Monstrum = Monster
Venandi = Hunter
XXXII = 32

And the user is editing in the same topic areas.

But after looking more into this, it seems rather this is the sockpuppet TwoHorned/Xsaorapa impersonating an innocent user (MonsterHunter32). TwoHorned/Xsaorapa is a LTA sock who is indef blocked on multiple wikis and has a massive history of sockpuppetry and of impersonating other users. Please see the new case below. --어떤 자유 사회도 말을 두려워해서는 안 된다 (talk) 23:03, 13 July 2021 (UTC)

TwoHorned@en.wikiquote

Thank you very much Amanda. I did not have the time to show all examples and diffs, but here I am adding a few more.

Sylvester Millner should be checked because the suspected sock edited the same article [43] with an edit suggesting that the viewpoint of the Pakistani military which committed the 1971 Bangladesh genocide is missing, and the new account Sylvester Millner added external links with the said viewpoint.

JonMilkins should be checked due to edits exactly the same as those of MonstrumVenandiXXXII. Examples:

  • Rearranging of quotes (while at the same time deleting some content, so the censorship of quotes is camouflaged, he deletes content, doesn't say anything in the edit summary, and at the same time adds other material so no one notices the removal)
  • Deleting references and content (of authors and views he doesn't like), another typical behaviour.
  • JonMilkins [53] (deletes reference to Dr. A. Bostom) Note that in this edit the same was done [54] by an IP previously blocked as a sock of Xsaorapa
  • MonstrumVenandiXXXII [55] [56] [57] (there are more examples)
  • Articles and topics both MonstrumVenandiXXXII or JonMilkins and Xsaorapa edited (there are many more examples)
  • Example Article Islamic terrorism
  • Example articles on Jews:
    • [60][61] and a few more examples in his edits ]
    • previous socks: [62][63]
    • a thread showing previous socks pushing anti semitic conspiracy theories [64]
    • there is even an article on a wikipedia userpage about his anti semitism [65]
  • JonMilkins adding cleanup tags:[66]
  • MonstrumVenandiXXXII adding cleanup tags: [67] (many more examples) [68]
  • Xsaorapa adding npov tags to same article as MonstrumVenandiXXXII [69][70] (there are many more examples of Xsaorapa adding npov and cleanup tags)

So I think also JonMilkins and Sylvester Millner should be checked with MonstrumVenandiXXXII. Of course it is also possible that MonstrumVenandiXXXII is MonsterHunter32, but after I saw the JonMilkins account I think now it is more likely they are socks of TwoHorned/Xsaorapa. --어떤 자유 사회도 말을 두려워해서는 안 된다 (talk) 20:40, 18 July 2021 (UTC)

  Declined. While I did check MonstrumVenandiXXXII, they were on a proxy. Nothing immediate came up for ZeGoyMan. The evidence from there is weak at best and insufficent for a CU to be ran on the other accounts.   Stale Xsaorapa. TwoHorned does not exist locally. -- Amanda (aka DQ) 18:29, 18 July 2021 (UTC)

@Jules*: All of the accounts you suggested except AigeusMare(data available on itwiki) are   Stale, so at this time, no data can be obtained by investigating those accounts. If they are logged in and active, the data is there and they can proceed with the investigation, but this is currently not possible because the data has expired. If you want to investigate AigeusMare, I will contact itwiki checkusers team. Also, ping @TSventon: for notification. --Sotiale (talk) 09:24, 25 July 2021 (UTC)

@Sotiale He continues to vandalize with account name hidden (talk • contribs • block • xwiki-contribs • xwiki-date (alt) • CA • ST • lwcheckuser). Is there a method to solve the problem completely? ༒𝓷𝓱𝓪𝓬𝓷𝔂༒ Talk to me ♥ 17:19, 25 July 2021 (UTC)
@NhacNy2412: As far as I remember, the ranges they use are normal IP bands, so there are some things to consider to prevent their behavior. And those IP ranges can fluctuate widely, potentially making editing difficult for users in certain country. It is also possible to block the account creation function through a filter, but I don't think it will have much meaning because it is easy to bypass. I will take the necessary measures in consideration of these aspects. --Sotiale (talk) 01:19, 26 July 2021 (UTC)
