  • While I have no substantial evidence yet, I suspect that the User Jackothewacko is a sockpuppet account of Jackthetripper123. Both have the same style of writing and communicating, as seen when you compare these mesages:

    Also, both user seem to be somewhat obsessed with correcting grammar and contacting other users on their userpage about the grammar on their recent edits.

    While this might not be strong enough evidence to block him or to come to a conclusion, I just wanted to let you know immediately, since Jackthetripper123 was blocked for grooming an underage user.

    • Speaking of which, that first thread you had linked, I feel like that Psikyo user may actually be an alt of Zambaquous (who may also be an alt of Geagalze/Grobda, due to his hostile, irrational behavior and submitting fan art). I don't have strong evidence for this, but the fact that Psikyo joined two hours after Zamb got blocked (in which Zamb joined the wiki two to three hours after Geagalze got blocked) should be taken into consideration.

      Also speaking of which:

      • Grobda - Name of an arcade shooter game by Namco.
      • Bandainamco - Name of a video game company.
      • Geagalze - Name of a boss from an arcade scrolling shooting game called "Act-Fancer: Cybernetick Hyper Weapon".
      • Zambaquous - Another name of a boss from an arcade scrolling shooting game called "Dragon Breed".
      • Psikyo1945 - Psikyo is the name of a video game company, with "1945" being a reference to one of their games called "Strikers 1945", an arcade scrolling shooting game.

      Seems like a pattern, doesn't it?

      In regards to Jackothewacko though, I will point out that he has started interacting with Poison Ivy, which is something Kubol/Jack did quite frequently on his previous "Kubol123" and "Jackthetripper" accounts. So that's at least one red flag.

    • With Psikyo1945 I probably need to look a little into the edits but Jackothewacko is blocked as I have no doubt he's a sockpuppet. Psikyo1945 wouldn't be a total surprise I just am not as certain yet.

    • I decided to join back in this regarding Psikyo. I've been noticing that he was abusing the one line template and has been carelessly submitting fan art on certain articles such as the Screenslaver and Garou, all of which were common edits of Grobda's. He still has yet to display some kind of hostile behavior, though he does seem to be going out of his way for certain things to happen. I'm also noticing a bit of some similarity in the grammar between the two, as well as Zambaquos.

    • Alright then. I just feel like something seems off here. It's mainly that date he joined on that really has me thinking here. 

        Loading editor
    • It "feels off" because it is. He joins the wiki a month ago, right after Zambaquous had gotten banned, who in turn joined mysteriously after Grobda got exposed for sockpuppetry, who in turn, made alts not even a day after each one got blocked. You seeing a pattern here? If Psikyo and Zamb are Grobda (the evidence supporting this is ringing off some alarm bells imo), then he sure has stuck to that pattern a lot and probably will do it again once he gets blocked.

      Also, in regards to treating him like a "normal user for now", I have never seen any new user on this wiki, within the span of a month, gain over 2.5k edits and mysteriously familiarize themselves with certain rules and how they use certain templates. If that happens, it's either a very rare case of a new user adapting to the rules very quickly (again, that's rare to come by) or they're unsurprisingly, an alt.

      Oh and, I'm feeling the Grobda/Bandainamco vibe because he always, back then, used to get all-caps aggressive with anyone who disagreed with him, hence why I showed that link the first place.

      And that is exactly why I am sceptical. Their personalities don't match. Sure, I do agree that the amount of edits done are strange, but if that would have happened to a Grobda user, they would have freaked out. Not something as simple as the link you showed, but all caps and saying that they will report the user or something. Now, I completely agree with you on everything else, especially his seeming obsession with B1, having the mindset that, if B1 approves, everyone does. See his chat with Super Poison Ivy, for instance.

    • I'm coming back to this discussion to say that I'm 100% sure that Psikyo is Grobda. The Vic Vega / Mr. Blonde page. Some months ago, one of Grobda's accounts removed the P.E. category because he "was loyal to a mob family". Now, today, Psikyo did the same exact thing. Combine this with everythint else, and boom; Grobda.

      Also, did some further investigating to find connections Psiyko and Zambaquous share with Grobda's previous accounts. Psiyko seems to have a habit of touching some of the same pages his previous accounts have edited in the past, among which are pages he may have heavily contributed to. Please excuse the length of this post:

      You get the idea. This is only a rough amount of pages I picked out considering how long this list is alone and to spare my own sanity from digging these up in the first place. But considering the fact that there are this many articles Psiyko has targeted that Grobda's accounts have previously edited, then there is probably a lot more.

      On another note, when it comes to which of the same Wikis he and Grobda have been active on, there isn't exactly much to work with, since Psiyko just so happened to clear out his favorite Wikis list (how convenient).

      Needless to say though, if Psiyko is gone, he's gone, I guess. However, keep in mind Grobda has a habit of quickly making accounts around a day after one gets blocked (hell, I think Geagalze was created only 5 hours or so after Grobda had received a block back in December), so we can assume he'll probably do it again as always. I'm probably going to start being more vigilante for who his next accounts might be instead of you know, leaving stuff like this for months and months on end.

    • Another sockpuppet update. So about a month ago now, Grobda outed himself again under the username Eternal eclipse1. Since a pattern was spotted between each of his usernames relating to arcade games and/or their companies, my guess is that he decided to go with a much less obvious username. Still didn't work out for him though, because he got caught. I'm bringing this up though because I know he's back again, but this time, under multiple different usernames which I'll list below:

      He probably thinks he's being clever by doing this, but I still see Grobda's same old tactics in each of these accounts. I've noticed that several of them have made edits on some of the same articles that Grobda has previously touched on his alts (the "Unitstump" account in particular going after Victor "Vic" Vega's article), all of them are obsessed with insisting that every single Evil Organization needs a logo no matter how poor an logo's quality looks and regardless of whether or not it is fan-made and has even started adding them to Hostile Species (where it definitely should not apply in my opinion. An image of a species in an infobox is more important than a logo, since it shows what the species actually is), and as of recent, has been removing the "Hegemony" category from organizations/groups which is something his Eternal and I believe his Psikyo accounts have already pulled, and last but not least, they are once again never active at the exact same time (he's hopping between accounts). If you need any evidence, I'll try to provide some, but this message is just to bring some awareness to these particular accounts.

      In other news, I also believe these following users are all sockpuppets of each other: Destroyer of Everything 123467, Monster4589 and Titinak12924. To start off with, I think Destroyer of Everything is a sockpuppet of Titinak due to frequent PE abuse (and category abuse overall, mind you), edit-warring (both accounts edit-warred over the "Game Changer" category on General Mandible's article), both frequently tended to add the "Starvers" category to multiple pages without providing explanations and both accounts went after I believe a few of the same articles.

      Now with Monster4589, I'd say there is a more obvious case here against Destroyer resorting to sockpuppetry. To start with, both users are active on the Power Rangers Wiki and the Superpower Wiki (with both accounts making edits to the same article on the Superpower Wiki):

      https://powerrangers.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/Destroyer_of_Everything_123467

      https://powerrangers.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/Monster4589

      https://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/Destroyer_of_Everything_123467

      https://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Contributions/Monster4589

      They have also gone after some of the same articles (Lucas Baker, Crooked Man (The Wolf Among Us), Bigby Wolf, Dr. Nefarious (Remake), Sōsuke Aizen, Black Mask and Ichabod Crane (Fables) to name a couple) and have similarly made the same category abusing tactics (especially with "Pure Evil" and "Starvers") while also considering their own edits "constructive". There is also this message on Destroyer's own wall (since he can't edit due to being banned):

      https://villains.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:501977

      Interestingly enough, all three of these pages listed are later followed up with edits from the Monster4589 account. And upon me reverting edits made by Monster4589 on the Lucas Baker and Bloody Mary (The Wolf Among Us) accounts due to category abuse (with Lucas, he added contradictory categories and some which pretty much didn't belong, while with Bloody Mary it was just flat out PE abuse), Destroyer left these messages on his wall (one of which was him outright attacking me, which is unsurprising, since Destroyer always has a hostile and demanding attitude):

      https://villains.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:503243

      https://villains.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:503245

      He seems to be playing it off as if Monster4589 is a different person, which is of course a classic sockpuppeting tactic that usually never works.

      Lastly, I believe Titinak and all of his other alts can all be traced back to this user: D1267890. When he was still active, he abused categories in the same manner as Titinak and the rest of his accounts and received multiple bans because of it. He also showed a bit of hostility among one of the times he was banned, similar to that of Destroyer's behavior:

      https://villains.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:460747

      I don't know if you can look back in the logs, but the deleted message at the bottom was D126 saying "can someone get rid of this stupid ass ban?" or something along the lines of that. D126, I think, also made edits to pages Destroyer and Titinak had later touched (the Megabyte and General Mandible articles come to mind). I think it's also worth mentioning that all three of these accounts have made edits to pages relating to Marvel at some point or another. With that said, this is all what I've managed to dig up on this case so far.

    • Sorry it took so long but all are now blocked permanently, I appreciate the detailed report and agree it's all too suspicious to be just a coincidence on everything.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, no problem. I have a few additional things to note on these Grobda alts though:

      https://villains.wikia.com/wiki/Death_Troopers?action=history

      With this one, I changed the infobox from a logo that the "Javsprd" account added back to an actual image of a Death Trooper, since that would be the first recognizable thing about a Death Trooper in general (same applies to Stormtroopers). And I found it interesting how "Armdx" tried to swap another one of the logos at the bottom with the infobox image when it was originally added by Javsprd. Grobda has a firm tendency to defend whatever logo he adds at times, and this seemed like no exception.

      https://villains.wikia.com/wiki/Illuminati_(Texas_Chainsaw_Massacre)?action=history

      Here, it's a similar scenario, except it's the "Unit731stump" defending the logo in question, even though it looks somewhat bland compared to an image of the actual group membership.

      https://villains.wikia.com/wiki/Xevious?action=history

      This one kind of speaks for itself. Three of his previous alts made frequent edits to it, followed up by Armdx moving images that Bandainamco added to a gallery sub-page.

      As for the "Turan" and "M187" accounts, they too have added logos at some point, with one particular logo that Turan added being a very odd choice in my opinion. I also had a look at each account's bans on the BlockList and it definitely seemed like they were all owned by the same IP according to the IP autoblocker, so that more or less confirms our suspicions.

    • This is about that whole Jackthetripper issue. I was unaware of what happened at that time, because I was relatively new to this site. However, I recently found out what happened between him and that girl (well, SEVERAL other girls), and I feel like he was let off too easily. Even though he was globally blocked, he can easily continue to create sockpuppets, like he did three months ago. However, I really don't think permablocking him is gonna make any difference, because what he did was a federal offence. He could have at least been sued or put on probation or something. (Or even go to jail, because he tried to groom several other girls). So pretty much like I said, my concern is that I feel like he was let off too easily. Sure, there was a big meeting, and he was globalbanned and everything, but I think he should probably be reported to the authorities for his crimes, because seeing how he often creates sockpuppets, I have a really bad feeling that things are gonna get out of hands in the future.

      I know the "reporting him to the authorities" part sounds too exagerative, but he literally used this site to commit federal crimes, so just saying...

    • I can understand your concern and to learn he did it to more than one is rather disturbing but not only do I not know who we'd report him to but I also am not sure we know any real info on him. For all we know he could be unfortunately a different person from the picture or any number of things. I wish we could do more but not sure we actually can beyond what we have.

        Loading editor
    • His real name is Jakub Janowski, and he lives in Poland.

      Okay, okay, I know it was wrong to get personal info about him (VERY wrong, actually), but after I found out what he did, I felt like letting him keep his privacy is simply letting him get away with his actions. However, I don't know any other info about him (I barely even know how he looks like). Anyways, the gravity of his misdeeds are severe enough for him to earn some decent jail time, so if everyone agrees with my idea of reporting him, we can at least know who to call. Again, I know it definitely was not the best choice to look for personal data about him, but then, I also don't think it's right to let him keep his privacy after blatantly trying to groom and harrass multiple girls online. And speaking of the information itself that I found, we already know that he's in a wheelchair, he's from Poland, and everything (MenInBlak was the one who found that out) , so in case I probably get into trouble for trying to get personal data about him, in my defense, simply knowing his name isn't really anything compared to all the stuff we already know about him.

        Loading editor
    • So then, to clear things up, I'm didn't search for his information so he can be harassed by vigilantic trolls or anything. I simply did it so we can be able to know which authority to call and everything.

    • We are NOT going to form a lynchmob against that guy since it is not up to our personal opinions whether he may keep his privacy or not. As far as I know, the admins on the wiki did everything in their power to keep him away. If you feel that maybe authorities should be involved, I guess you could ask an actual FANDOM employee over on Community Central for their take on the situation.

        Loading editor
    • I know. I made it clear that I'm not trying to get him cybermobbed or anything. I simply just wanted to make it easier to have him reported to the actual authorities, because his action of grooming and harassing a bunch of girls online is a federal offence, and simply blocking him isn't gonna do anything.

    • Your second reply came while I wrote mine, so I did not read your correction before I sent my reply. Sorry.

      Other than that, if you want to go through, it might be worth looking into whether it is a federal offence in Poland fist since it might (I have actually no idea) differ from the place where you are from. However, there comes the question whether the guy actually is from Poland and if he is the guy you found (on Facebook, I guess?).

      That's all I have to say about this, I actually don't want to get involved in this further.

    • And about getting Community Central involved, I'll definitely have to do that. We should probably find a time to discuss this whole Kubol123 issue with them. Considering his history of sockpuppetry, blocking him is basically letting him get away with his actions, and as if we don't know this already, his crimes are simply disturbing.

    • Discovered some more potential Grobda alts. I'll list them below with reasons given:

      • Malfice4 - Like Grobda, insists on adding logos to articles about groups. He also tagged a redirect to a deleted page as deletion with the reasoning being "Dead link.", which is near identical to Grobda's alts doing the same thing to dead redirects. These following articles have all been touched before by his previous accounts, followed up by his edits (see their revision history): Frills, Joker's Gang (DC Extended Universe) and Terraformar. I'd also like to point out that this account, and all of the following accounts below have all mysteriously become active a day or two after the previous batch of accounts I listed above were banned. Supported by the fact that Grobda always does this with his sockpuppet accounts and it immediately raises red flags once obvious behavior is shown from them.
      • Bun023 - This account added an image to the Cranassian Dictator's Military article's gallery subpage, which was created by Grobda and followed up with edits from his "Eternal eclipse1" account. The main page has been frequently edited by a few of Grobda's accounts in the past.
      • Rctd149 - Changed the CTan template's overview on the Dead Moon Circus article from "Villain Overview" to "Organization Overview", which is something Grobda's more recent alts have been frequently doing. The same article has also been edited by Grobda and Bandainamco.
      • Post459 - Same thing as above, but with the Mi-go article. He also got the Neo-Helghasts deleted due to wanting it merged with another. Grobda had a particularly notable history of merging pages with others and had actually gotten in trouble for doing so in the past, so was the deletion for the Neo-Helghasts article really warranted?
      • Rougered983 - Got the Riddler's Frogmen article deleted due to them apparently being "nameless lackeys with zero significance" (again, I've seen Grobda use this reasoning for deleting some pages, and these reasonings weren't applied to mook type enemies from video games). Also, his Armdx077 account had also tried to (and succeeded with at least one) delete some certain articles concerning Batman Villains from film, and considering this article was about some characters from Batman Forever, that makes me suspicious. Also, again, is this even a valid excuse for deletion? I thought the "nameless mooks" rule only applied to certain generic video game enemies.
