Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible)
Brief guide to using this template

  {{Sockpuppet  &  sockmaster  &  blank/blocked/proven/confirmed }}

  • You think the account is a sock, but aren't sure and you haven't blocked it: {{Sockpuppet|Master account}}
  • Sock has been blocked based on edits: {{Sockpuppet|Master account|blocked}}
  • Sock has been blocked based on CheckUser evidence: {{Sockpuppet|Master account|confirmed}}.

To append links, evidence, or a brief note, use |3=. Useful for adding a diff to a checkuser's talk page, if the check was not conducted at SPI. If explaining behavioral evidence, be mindful of WP:BEANS.

For sockmasters, use {{Sockpuppeteer}}.

Usage[edit]

Code Use Displays
{{sockpuppet|Example}}

{{sockpuppet|Example|suspected}} {{sockpuppet|Example|spi}}

Account is not yet blocked but is under investigation.
{{sockpuppet|Example|blocked}} The account has been blocked based on behavioral evidence.
{{sockpuppet|Example|proven}} Behavior proved beyond a reasonable doubt (WP:DUCK) or similar but there is no CU File:Symbol confirmed.svg Confirmed result (CU may have given another result).
{{sockpuppet|Example|confirmed}}

{{sockpuppet|Example|cuconfirmed}}
{{sockpuppet|Example|nbconfirmed}}

A CU has File:Symbol confirmed.svg Confirmed that the accounts are related.
{{sockpuppet|Example|confirmed|locked=yes}} Account has been confirmed by a CU, locally blocked indef and globally locked.
{{sockpuppet|Example|cuconfirmed|notblocked=yes}} A CheckUser has confirmed that the account is a sock (as above) but has not been blocked. This works with all parameters.

For use when there is a master which is not confirmed (can be used in addition to the parameters below)

Code Use Displays
{{Sockpuppet|Example|confirmed |altmaster=Example2|altmaster-status=proven}} User:Example has been confirmed to another sock account but there is a very strong connection to another master (Example2) which is not CU confirmed.
{{Sockpuppet|Example|confirmed |altmaster=Example2|altmaster-status=suspected}} User:Example has been confirmed to another sock account but User:Example2 is the suspected master.
{{Sockpuppet|Example|proven |altmaster=Example2|altmaster-status=suspected}} User:Example is proven to be a sock of another account but both are suspected to be a sock of User:Example2.

The template adds the __NOINDEX__ magic word.

Parameters[edit]

The first parameter in this table is required and the template will fail without it. All the other parameters are optional.

Parameter(s) Values Notes
  • First positional parameter (optionally |1=)
Username of the sockmaster or suspected sockmaster Just include the name, no "User:" or square brackets.
  • Second positional parameter (optionally |2=)
  • spi
  • suspected
  • blocked
  • proven
  • confirmed
  • cuconfirmed
  • nbconfirmed
  • spi, suspected and default (nothing specified) - these are equivalent, and can be used if the user is still under investigation or has not yet been blocked or confirmed by checkuser.
  • blocked - this is used for sockpuppets that have been blocked on behavioral evidence (the duck test) or behavioral evidence combined with a non-conclusive CU result (such as File:Symbol possible vote.svg Possible).
  • proven - Behaviour is beyond reasonable doubt but there is no CU File:Symbol confirmed.svg Confirmed result (CU may have given a different result).
  • confirmed, cuconfirmed and nbconfirmed - A CU has File:Symbol confirmed.svg Confirmed that the accounts are related.
  • Third positional parameter (optionally |3=)
  • |evidence=
Evidence of sockpuppetry This field can be used to link to the evidence of sockpuppetry, or to give a very brief summary (a couple of words). If this parameter is left blank and the sockpuppet investigation case page is a blue link, then a link to the case page is provided automatically.
  • |spipage=
Subpage name (just the master) of the SPI if not the same as the master This field can be used to specify a different SPI page if the page is not named for the master in parameter 2.
  • |locked=
  • yes
Use |locked=yes if the account is globally locked.
  • |notblocked=
  • yes
This parameter can be used to remove the note about the account being blocked, such as when a version other than the default applies. Such as if an account is confirmed by a CheckUser but is left unblocked. This parameter works with all parameters.
  • |length=
Length of time the sockpuppet or suspected sockpuppet was blocked Use this field if the sockpuppet or suspected sockpuppet was blocked for a specific length of time. This parameter defaults to "indefinitely". This parameter is ignored, and does not default to indefinitely, if nbconfirmed is used.
