CU Request[edit | edit source]

Users: User:Enter your username, User:Felix R., User:Sock puppet of astirmays and IP address User:73.222.174.27

Reasons: Pages seem to be interlinked, one person editing the other persons pages, admissions that Enter your username has multiple sockpuppets (apparently they're only joking, but I don't believe this for a second), IP address also admits to being Enter your username (and claims to be joking). According to links, Enter your username has 23 socks. The accounts also like editing other users userpages, a practice strictly forbidden within most wikis. Only the user themselves may edit their userpage. They also seem to like editing the same pages. As we would say on Wikipedia, this is an obvious duck. Review requested please. Thanks!

Are you seriously saying that a obvious joke page is a admission of sockpuppetry? I quit. might come back later - But no thanks. Feel free to block me as a totally obvious sock. Bye. Felix R. | Talk? 00:21, 20 June 2018 (CEST)
A lot of the time, Sockpuppets like to pretend nothing is wrong and throw people off the scent. I've been on Wikipedia for two and a half years and have a fair amount of experience spotting and handling sockpuppet accounts. If you aren't a sockpuppet, I apologise, but you have to understand that I have my reasons for requesting the check. It's not an obvious joke when someone says they have 23 accounts and then proceeds to laugh about it. DaneGeld (talk) 00:43, 20 June 2018 (CEST)
Thank you. I'm not a new user to wikis, but I am to this one. I have a bad habit of acting like a sock - sorry. Felix R. | Talk? 00:58, 20 June 2018 (CEST)

I admit I am a sockpuppet of someone. Please request a block on me. Sock puppet of astirmays (talk) 21:24, 27 June 2018 (CEST)

CU accepted.
Sock puppet of astirmays and User:Enter your username matches. I blocked both.
User:Felix R. did not match the two other accounts. That does not mean he is not the same user. That just mean we don't know for now (I did not check on fr for now, might be interesting...). BUT I've seen recently multiple other accounts created by User:Felix R.. No show of vandalism yet, but...
Notification Felix R.: Consider this as a final warning. Stop creating accounts. Please contribute seriously only. I think you can. You've proven so. Keep going.
Notification DaneGeld: Thank you for raising this concern. Please don't hesitate to ask to block any user that makes you loose contribution time. I'll help you. Good luck for your next contributions. Plyd (talk) 14:04, 29 June 2018 (CEST)

CU Request[edit | edit source]

Users: User:Enter your username and User:(ʖ)

Reason: Enter your username currently blocked, comparison between the pages of both users suggests that Enter your username is committing block evasion. Confirmation requested.

Links for proof: Compare - https://en.vikidia.org/wiki/User:Enter_your_username&oldid=101343 (userpage of Enter your username) with https://en.vikidia.org/wiki/User_(ʖ)&oldid=101483 (userpage of (%CA%96))

Check the "About" collapsable box on You will note the similarities between the two, and previous revisions of Enter your username will note the use of "LOL" quite liberally. When you also see the use of the same userbox, same location (San Jose, California), same babel templates (EN-3, ZH-1)... My spider sense is tingling and I'd like to ask for this to be reviewed, but I suspect these two to be the same user. DaneGeld (talk) 23:10, 1 July 2018 (CEST)

Got another probable one, an IP. It has the same location, has contributed to the same pages, and says that they are the same age. Sincerely, Felix R. 01:29, 2 July 2018 (CEST)
Possibly another one in User:Name. Same location, same use of collapsible boxes, etc. Almost certainly the same user. Felix R. 02:09, 2 July 2018 (CEST)
Edit: User:Name has added the same languages. There is clearly sockpuppetry here. Felix R. 02:10, 2 July 2018 (CEST)
Very ducky. To quote Wikipedia, "If it walks like a Duck, quacks like a Duck and Swims like a Duck, it's a Duck." I'd say you're spot on, Felix. DaneGeld (talk) 02:37, 2 July 2018 (CEST)
The IP admitted that it was EyU. Look at the user page edit history. Felix R. 03:46, 2 July 2018 (CEST)
Checked. I blocked User:(ʖ) and User:Name that were definitly another sockpuppets of User:Enter your username. Plyd (talk) 08:51, 2 July 2018 (CEST)

CU Request[edit | edit source]

Users: RobertBarnard and Bezoju, also IP 108.59.8.207

Reason: Suspicion of RobertBarnard and Bezoju being socks, based on promotional activity, both users promoting paid editing by external companies. IP is included because it started the page RobertBarnard edited (Adada) which he edited and turned into the promotional article barely 13 minutes later.

Links for proof: Cannot provide revision links as both pages are deleted, and therefore viewable by administrators and higher level users. The pages deleted were: Adada and Wiki Writing. The history and article text should be enough to link them together.

Observations: I note that the two websites spammed by Bezoju and RobertBarnard both come in a similar format - www.wiki(something)inc.com - another reason for me to be on the radar with this one. Hopefully something will come of this investigation. DaneGeld (talk) 00:51, 22 August 2018 (CEST)

 Done, RobertBarnard = Bezoju = 108.59.8.207. Linedwell (talk) 07:29, 22 August 2018 (CEST)

User rights request[edit | edit source]

Hi. Given the recent (large) amounts of vandalism being produced by sock accounts from a persistent LTA who has been plaguing the hell out of me, I'd like to request in addition to my sysop privileges, the nuker right to enable me to swiftly clean up all the vandalism in the amounts it is being made. I have checked and it appears it's not a right I can self grant, so I request it through the bureaucrats. Many thanks. DaneGeld (talk) 21:40, 30 August 2018 (CEST)

I want to rename my account username[edit | edit source]

Current name: JohnintheBox

New name: JackintheBox

Reason: I want to rename my account username to JackintheBox to correspond to my main account on the English Wikipedia, which is linked on my user page. I tried to name my account 'JackintheBox' when I created this account, but it was prevented as the username was identified as 'spam'. See my latest edit to my user page on enwiki, which shows this account is created by the same person. JohnintheBox (talk) 04:48, 2 May 2019 (UTC)

Hi JohnintheBox. Sorry for this delay. We don't have a rename template here, but I will see what I can do about importing one from somewhere or making a template to do the job. In the meantime, Notification Linedwell:, Notification Plyd: or Notification Astirmays:, could you attend to renaming this account please? I don't have bureaucrat rights on here! Happy. Thanks! DaneGeld (talk) 22:37, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
 Done, Linedwell (talk) 19:01, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
Thanks everybody! Linedwell, since the template given at the top of this page doesn't work, should it be removed? Regards JackintheBox (talk) 13:00, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
Hi Notification JackintheBox:. I have actually restored the template - I thought we didn't have one, but it turned out it'd been deleted some time ago. I only took it off your post because you'd already manually formatted your request, and when I restored the template it came up blank over the top of your post. I believe it should work as normal now. I'll check it out and make sure though! Glad you got sorted out. DaneGeld (talk) 13:38, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
You're welcome JackintheBox. Regarding the template, it works as you can seen bellow Linedwell (talk) 09:07, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
