Wikipedia:Requests for checkuser

Checkuser is the process of checking information about two or more users (including named users and IPs). Special users are able to check if two or more accounts have been used from the same computer. These users also see User agents. This can help them decide if two accounts are related in the way described above. It is also possible to see if a user is editing from an open proxy.

On this page, users can request some users or IPs to be checked. Good reasons should be given for why a checkuser is needed; you should provide links which show the questionable edits, etc. Questions should usually be created so that they can be answered by yes or no. Responses will be short in order to comply with Wikipedia privacy policy. Sensitive information (like the IP addresses used by an account) are usually not reported. The results are not always clear, and a decision should not be made only on the basis of checkuser results.

Use of the tool[change source]

This tool is to be used to fight vandalism, to check for sockpuppet abuse, and to limit disruption of the project. It must be used only to prevent damage to the project.

The tool should not be used for political control; to apply pressure on editors; or as a threat against another editor in a content dispute. There must be a valid reason to check a user. Note that alternative accounts are not forbidden, so long as they are not used in violation of the policies (for example, to vote more than once or to make it look like more people support an idea). Checkusers will refuse a request, if the reason for checking is not good enough to warrant the use of the tool.

Please see the CheckUser policy for all the rules related to CheckUser.

Disruption on Saverio Fabbri (Actor)[change source]

Removed RfD tag four times from as Username:Bach1988; once each as and Apparent admission to being the same as Bach1988 on User talk:Bach1988. Rus793 (talk) 16:09, 27 January 2017 (UTC)


Per policy, I am not allowed to directly link IPs and usernames. Feel free to block the user, if edits are disruptive; when blocking an IP remember though: IPs are scarce, and may get re-used. (So: no long term blocks on IPs...). In short: some of the IPs above cannot be clearly linked to Bach being logged in, and may be used by others. --Eptalon (talk) 16:51, 12 March 2017 (UTC)

Disruption on The 500 Most Influential Muslims[change source]

These accounts have been following the same pattern of disruptive behavior and creating bad pages. IP is universally blocked, User:Anas647 is blocked at Enwiki as a sock of User:Aboobackeramani Rus793 (talk) 18:49, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

There is no evidence to link the named user to other disruptive edits. However it would seem that further disruptive edits from any of the above accounts should result in blocking.--Peterdownunder (talk) 23:10, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
