Wikipedia:Dispute resolution requests/SPI

Please read before requesting for a sock puppet investigation
Sock Puppet Investigation (SPI) The sock puppet investigation page is for requesting an investigation as to whether two or more Wikipedia accounts are being abusively operated by the same person. Before opening an investigation, you need to have good reason to suspect sock puppetry:
  1. Evidence is required. When you open the investigation, you must immediately provide evidence that the suspected sock puppets are connected.
  2. The evidence will need to include diffs of edits that suggest the accounts are connected. (This requirement is waived if the edits in question are deleted; in this case just provide the names of the articles that both have been editing.)
  3. You must provide this evidence in a clear way. Vaguely worded submissions will not be investigated. You need to actually show why your suspicion that the accounts are connected is reasonable.

To request a Sock Puppet Investigation visit the Sock Puppet Investigation page and follow the instructions there.
