In an earlier episode, User:RoySmith wrote, "I've blocked 22.214.171.124/24 for a year. Looking through the history, /22 might make sense, but I'll go with the smaller range for now." Time to reconsider the /22, as the first IP above made two characteristic edits at Tegucigalpa today (images), following one by the second IP on 11 June (an image). Except for two edits that were improper anyway, all edits shown for Special:Contributions/126.96.36.199/22 since 9 September 2020 were indisputably by this user based on pages edited and the nature of the edits.

- Largoplazo, I tend to think of H2k as concentrating on climate classifications. I'm not convinced that these edits fit that pattern. It's not surprising that an IP that geolocates to Honduras is editing Honduras-related topics. Could you point out some more specific diffs of known H2k socks that overlap with these IP edits? -- RoySmith (talk) 14:25, 15 June 2021 (UTC)
- RoySmith, H2k has dual focuses: climate and photos (adding and replacing). Under this range, for climate, we have . These cover the period from 13 September through 3 June, and come from both 144s and 146s. Most of the remaining edits from this range since September have been of the image variety. Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, Intibucá, and La Esperanza in Honduras are all long-time favorites of H2k socks, as is Caracas, which has also figured in some of the sock account names. There may be other Hondurans editing, and some of them may edit Honduras-related articles in particular, but doesn't it seem we have here a clear intersection of specific articles chosen and specific edit focuses?

- Checkuser requested and endorsed by clerk - ST47, in 25 May 2021, you advised me on the wisdom of a year-long hardblock for 188.8.131.52/19. Same question now, regarding 184.108.40.206/22. -- RoySmith (talk) 23:24, 15 June 2021 (UTC)
