If I may, we don't know if it's impersonation or not. It could just be one of this guy's alts and he's just taunting people to find him. And if it is an alt, the page should just be moved to a subpage of sorts. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 23:12, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

He put character image as "image:I suck", and he has an active account in the suburb one to the west of where this user is apparently active. But as I said, DDR warned him about character pages before, so I highly doubt it's that.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 23:40, 13 January 2011 (UTC)
This too.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 23:41, 13 January 2011 (UTC)

I demand you give him the death penalty.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 18:14, 15 January 2011 (UTC)


Okay, how does checkuser confirm? Hasn't the IP been banned for three times now?--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png Talk 22:43, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Yep. I'm presuming the accounts were made beforehand (which explains the user bans being ineffective), but I've banned the IP itself twice, so I have no idea what's going on there.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 23:23, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Then there is something wrong here. This has happened before though, where Izumi somehow managed to bypass an IP block and created 17 puppets. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png Talk 23:41, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Frankly, I don't honestly care, because we can just keep banning her accounts when they crop up and reverting her edits. She'll give up before we do. Also, there's no evidence that it was just one IP in those cases. The idea was that she had access to several.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 23:58, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Proxies, maybe? --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 00:04, 7 January 2011 (UTC)
You need to uncheck the " Block anonymous users only " box, or it only bans anon's (who can't post anyway, so it's a bit of a redundant option here anyway). I unbanned and rebanned it. It should stick now -- boxy talkteh rulz 00:32 7 January 2011 (BST)

Lady Fate/Pikachu

I just noticed a similar editing pattern by Lady Kikyou. Might be worth looking into. ~Vsig.png 06:58, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

So do you guys run a checkuser on any new accounts that make edits to the Lockettside Valkyries page?--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 14:08, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Nope. A couple of sops have Izumi's favourite pages on a watchlist and if anyone edits them they go look at them, and its a case by case thing. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 14:32, 6 January 2011 (UTC)
Ah. Makes sense. Actually based on his/her editing history it probably wouldn't be unreasonable.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 16:34, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Someone might want to checkuser Sixclaw as well. If Vapor's talk page isn't hint enough, check the timing on Lady Kikyou's last contib and Sixclaw's first contrib. Even if checkuser doesn't come back as a positive match, it's still worth checking anyway. Aichon 08:14, 8 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for at least confirming I'm not paranoid. I honestly wouldn't be surprised. ~Vsig.png 08:18, 8 January 2011 (UTC)
It doesn't show up as being an alt (on a quick IP check), at this time. Don't let the sockpuppetry make you too jaded, guys. Even if it proves to be an alt in the long run, treating it as a genuine account doesn't reflect badly on you at all -- boxy talkteh rulz 09:44 8 January 2011 (BST)
Yeah, having a lasting paranoia about every user is what I think Izumi's goal is atm. She knows she can't win any other way, so we can do our best by keeping in line with our duties rather than try and go above and beyond when it probably isn't necessary in some cases. -- LEMON #1 00:48, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
I'd definitely agree. Even so, I think there's more than reasonable justification for suspecting Sixclaw, given the number of coincidences in the situation. Jumping on all new users is definitely a bad idea, of course, but being wary of ones that put up lots of red flags is just prudent, regardless of the timing or situation. As boxy said though, until they prove themselves to be a vandal, treating them as a good faith user is the proper course of action. Aichon 01:59, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
