Request for CheckUser investigation:[edit]

For Changing username see WT:CHU


A CheckUser investigation is a method by which certain Wiktionary users are able to determine IP information for logged in users, information which is normally hidden by the MediaWiki software. This ability allows them to determine whether a given set of usernames are or not connected to a specific IP address, range, ISP or geographical region. Because of the privacy implications, CheckUser requests are only to be used with long-term, persistent suspected sockpuppets and vandals. More information can be found on the Meta policy page. If you feel that your privacy has been violated through the misuse of this tool by a CheckUser enabled person, there is a CheckUser ombudsman service available.


  1. CheckUser investigations will only be conducted with the following cause:
    • with reasonable suspicion of the misuse of sockpuppets, including block evasion, persistent vandalism and vote fraud,
      • (a suspected sockpuppet may be investigated solely as a result of its edit behaviour if this reflects that of a persistent vandal)
    • to identify an underlying IP range of a persistent vandal in order to prevent likely repeat vandalism
    • upon the request of a user to be checked themselves for cause.
  2. CheckUser enabled users are restricted in their use of the tool by the meta CheckUser policy.


  1. If a CheckUser is in order, request one below including the following information:
    • Usernames and IPs suspected of association.
    • Concise examples of reasons for suspicion (diffs and deletion logs).
    • Other applicable notes and comments.
    • Sign your request.
  2. If the CheckUser investigation is merited, a CheckUser investigation will be made, with the results posted on this page.
  3. The results of an investigation are posted in a very succinct manner, per Wikimedia's privacy policy requirements. Because of the nature of the tool, often results will be inconclusive and no determination is possible.

Seems like the sock of the banned user Irman (talkcontribs). Interested in the same stuff and posting similar spurious etymologies. --Vahag (talk) 09:55, 23 August 2019 (UTC)

Do you have a problem with the Iranians? You should see a psychiatrist.--ونوشک (talk) 10:19, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
Symbol unsupport vote.svg Inconclusive, but there are enough similarities to say that it is a reasonable suspicion. - TheDaveRoss 12:10, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
