Suspected sockpuppets

These three have in common the phrase "Seems to be not notable and without any reliable sources" (Bigneerman[1], Dark Juliorik[2][3][4], 不和の林檎[5]) which had never been used before until this week. They all follow the standard Expertwikiguy playbook of making numerous small edits with the VisualEditor and casting a large number of low-quality AfD !votes. Requesting CU to confirm and to look for others. Extraordinary Writ (talk) 21:40, 25 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The three possible users are all, without a doubt, using a VPN. They bounce all around the world geolocation-wise, and nearly all of the ranges I looked into came back positive for VPN use in reports. The user agents are mostly of the same device family, but different browsers. No IP address ranges overlapped or directly connected any of the users. The inconclusive user used one range in one geo-location, where none of the IPs used had VPN use reported. Unfortunately, that's all the information that I can give. Resetting status back to 'completed', as  Behavioural evidence needs evaluation. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 21:28, 2 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
