Rationale, discussion and results[edit]

Reason: It is suspected that this editor is a sock of Stho002 who has been globally blocked for persistent sockpuppetry as well as numerous other offences. The Contribution History for Allspecies is the main source of evidence. It shows this editor was;

  1. adding data on the blocked user page of Stho002, see user page above for Stho002
  2. always working during a time frame similar to the original sock, see time frames on the Contribution History
  3. working on pages created or edited by the original sock, for example Ixodiphagus taiaroaensis
  4. creating pages and working in areas of interest and relevance to the original sock, particularly journals (Weta) and species (Oarotrechus gracilentus) based in New Zealand
  5. using formats consistently used by the original sock, for example Lowry et al., 2010 and Stethaspis pulchra.

Due to Andy's concerns above and similar ones made by other users outside of process, I have used the CheckUser tool. I have found reason to believe that this account is a sockpuppet and additionally due to the arguments posted above, that it is specifically a sockpuppet of User:Stho002. —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:06, 29 July 2017 (UTC)
Considering what has been discussed so far I think we should be  Doing… this CU. I am in agreement with Justin. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 04:41, 30 July 2017 (UTC)

I agree. Dan Koehl (talk) 08:48, 8 August 2017 (UTC)
  • As this has been completed and seems likely and action has been taken with the blocking of user:Allspecies I am closing this case. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 14:11, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
