Attention: I prefer to keep discussions unfragmented. If you leave a comment for me here, I will most likely respond to it on this same page—my talk page—as an effort to keep the entire conversation in one place. By the same token, if I leave a comment on your talk page, please respond to it there. Remember, we can use our watchlist to keep track of when responses are made. At the same time, feel free to send an alert to me on this page about a comment you have left elsewhere.

Thanks for your interest in the SPI training. I've added you to the current training cycle. When you have the chance, please take the time to complete the questions posted. Thanks, Mike V • Talk 19:06, 30 January 2015 (UTC)
As one involved in SPIs, can you answer the following questions please.
1. If a checkuser spontaneously blocks a named account as a sock, with no SPI and no other discussion at all, should the blocked account be tagged as "confirmed" or as "suspected"?
2. Should a normal administrator (non-checkuser) blocking a named account ever tag it as "confirmed" when there has been no SPI and no checkuser involvement? 22.214.171.124 (talk) 22:11, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
