About check user

CheckUser is a special interface for users with the checkuser permission. An editor with CheckUser status on a wiki can in particular check if a user isn't a sockpuppet of another user on this wiki. By using it, users are able to:

  • Determine from which IPs a user has edited the Wikimedia wiki
  • Determine the edits on the Wikimedia wiki of a specific IP (even when logged in)

The community must approve at least two CheckUsers per consensus. Activity will be checked mutually. The user requesting check user status must request it within his local community and advertise this request properly (village pump, mailing list when available, ...). The editor must be familiar with the privacy policy. After gaining consensus (70%-80%) in his local community, with at least 25-30 editors approval, the user should list himself under Requests for permissions with a link to the page with the community's decision.
