List Of Sites Removed From Sherlock

This is a list of sites implemented in such a way that the current design of Sherlock is not capable of determining if a given username exists or not. They are listed here in the hope that things may change in the future so they may be re-included.

gpodder.net

As of 2020-05-25, all usernames are reported as available.

The server is returning a HTTP Status 500 (Internal server error) for all queries.

  "gpodder.net": {
    "errorType": "status_code",
    "rank": 2013984,
    "url": "https://gpodder.net/user/{}",
    "urlMain": "https://gpodder.net/",
    "username_claimed": "blue",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
  },

Raidforums

As of 2020-05-25, all usernames are reported as claimed. The site will not let the query proceed unless Javascript is turned on.

  "Raidforums": {
    "errorMsg": "The member you specified is either invalid or doesn't exist.",
    "errorType": "message",
    "rank": 32435,
    "url": "https://raidforums.com/User-{}",
    "urlMain": "https://raidforums.com/",
    "username_claimed": "red",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
  },

Investing.com

As of 2020-05-25, all usernames are reported as claimed.

Any query against a user seems to be redirecting to a general information page at https://www.investing.com/brokers/. Probably required login before access.

  "Investing.com": {
    "errorType": "status_code",
    "rank": 196,
    "url": "https://www.investing.com/traders/{}",
    "urlMain": "https://www.investing.com/",
    "username_claimed": "jenny",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
  },

TikTok

As of 2020-05-25, all usernames are reported as claimed.

  "TikTok": {
    "errorType": "status_code",
    "rank": 260,
    "url": "https://www.tiktok.com/@{}",
    "urlMain": "https://www.tiktok.com/",
    "username_claimed": "red",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
  },

ColourLovers

As of 2020-05-24, all usernames are reported as claimed.

There is an API available (https://www.colourlovers.com/api/), but when there is no match it returns an empty file. So, changes would have to happen before the lack of a response could be used to detect.

  "ColourLovers": {
    "errorType": "status_code",
    "rank": 21271,
    "url": "https://www.colourlovers.com/lover/{}",
    "urlMain": "https://www.colourlovers.com/",
    "username_claimed": "blue",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
  },

AdobeForums

As of 2020-04-12, all usernames are reported as available.

When I went to the site to see what was going on, usernames that I know existed were redirecting to the main page.

I was able to see user profiles without logging in, but the URL was not related to their user name. For example, user “tomke” went to https://community.adobe.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/10882613. This can be detected, but it requires a different detection method.

  "AdobeForums": {
    "errorType": "status_code",
    "rank": 59,
    "url": "https://forums.adobe.com/people/{}",
    "urlMain": "https://forums.adobe.com/",
    "username_claimed": "jack",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis77777"
  },

Basecamp

As of 2020-02-23, all usernames are reported as not existing.

Why was this ever added? It does not look like a social network.

  "Basecamp": {
    "errorMsg": "The account you were looking for doesn't exist",
    "errorType": "message",
    "rank": 4914,

    "urlMain": "https://angel.co/",

    "urlMain": "https://codepen.io/",
    "username_claimed": "blue",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
  },

Imgur

Looks like they made some changes to the site. Sherlock says that all usernames are available.

  "Imgur": {
    "errorType": "status_code",
    "rank": 74,
    "url": "https://imgur.com/user/{}",
    "urlMain": "https://imgur.com/",
    "username_claimed": "blue",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
  },

Accidentally merged even though the original pull request showed that all user names were available.

  "PowerShell Gallery": {
    "errorType": "status_code",
    "rank": 163562,
    "url": "https://www.powershellgallery.com/profiles/{}",
    "urlMain": "https://www.powershellgallery.com",
    "username_claimed": "powershellteam",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
  },

LinkedIn

This was attempted to be added around 2019-08-26, but the pull request was never merged. It turns out that LinkedIn requires that you have an account before they will let you check for other account. So, this site will not work with the current design of Sherlock.

StreamMe

On 2019-04-07, I get a Timed Out message from the website. It has not been working earlier either (for some weeks). It takes about 21s before the site finally times out, so it really makes getting the results from Sherlock a pain.

If the site becomes available in the future, we can put it back in.

  "StreamMe": {
    "errorType": "status_code",
    "rank": 31702,
    "url": "https://www.stream.me/{}",
    "urlMain": "https://www.stream.me/",
    "username_claimed": "blue",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
  },

BlackPlanet

This site has always returned a false positive. The site returns the exact same text for a claimed or an unclaimed username. The site must be rendering all of the different content using Javascript in the browser. So, there is no way distinguish between the results with the current design of Sherlock.

  "BlackPlanet": {
    "errorMsg": "My Hits",
    "errorType": "message",
    "rank": 110021,
    "url": "http://blackplanet.com/{}",
    "urlMain": "http://blackplanet.com/"
  },

Fotolog

Around 2019-02-09, I get a 502 HTTP error (bad gateway) for any access. On 2019-03-10, the site is up, but it is in maintenance mode.

It does not seem to be working, so there is no sense in including it in Sherlock.

  "Fotolog": {
    "errorType": "status_code",
    "rank": 47777,
    "url": "https://fotolog.com/{}",
    "urlMain": "https://fotolog.com/"
  },

Google Plus

On 2019-04-02, Google shutdown Google Plus. While the content for some users is available after that point, it is going away. And, no one will be able to create a new account. So, there is no value is keeping it in Sherlock.

Good-bye Google Plus...

  "Google Plus": {
    "errorType": "status_code",
    "rank": 1,
    "url": "https://plus.google.com/+{}",
    "urlMain": "https://plus.google.com/",
    "username_claimed": "davidbrin1",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
  },

Furaffinity

As of 2020-02-23, Furaffinity returns false postives because they are now using Cloudflair, which prevents Sherlock from checking if the user exists or not.

  "furaffinity": {
    "errorMsg": "user cannot be found",
    "errorType": "message",
    "rank": 0,
    "url": "https://www.furaffinity.net/user/{}",
    "urlMain": "https://www.furaffinity.net",
    "username_claimed": "blue",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis777777"
  },

InsaneJournal

As of 2020-02-23, InsaneJournal returns false positive, when providing a username which contains a period. Since we were not able to find the critera for a valid username, the best thing to do now is to remove it.

  "InsaneJournal": {
    "errorMsg": "Unknown user",
    "errorType": "message",
    "rank": 29728,
    "url": "http://{}.insanejournal.com/profile",
    "urlMain": "insanejournal.com",
    "username_claimed": "blue",
    "username_unclaimed": "dlyr6cd"
  },

Sports Tracker

As of 2020-04-02, Sports Tracker returns false positives. Checking with errorMsg and response_url did not seem to work.

   "SportsTracker": {
     "errorUrl": "https://www.sports-tracker.com/page-not-found",
     "errorType": "response_url",
     "rank": 93950,

     "urlMain": "https://www.sports-tracker.com/",
     "username_claimed": "blue",
     "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeveruse"
   },

Trip

As of 2020-04-02, Trip by Skyscanner seems to not work beceause it keeps on redirecting to skyscanner.com whether the username exists or not.

  "Trip": {
      "errorType": "status_code",
      "rank": 2847,
      "url": "https://www.trip.skyscanner.com/user/{}",
      "urlMain": "https://www.trip.skyscanner.com/",
      "username_claimed": "blue",
      "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
  },

boingboing.net

As of 2020-04-02, boingboing.net requires a login to check if a user exits or not.

   "boingboing.net": {
     "errorType": "status_code",
     "rank": 5821,
     "url": "https://bbs.boingboing.net/u/{}",
     "urlMain": "https://boingboing.net/",
     "username_claimed": "admin",
     "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
   },

elwoRU

As of 2020-04-04, elwoRu does not exist anymore. I confirmed using downforeveryoneorjustme.com that the website is down.

  "elwoRU": {
    "errorMsg": "\u041f\u043e\u043b\u044c\u0437\u043e\u0432\u0430\u0442\u0435\u043b\u044c \u043d\u0435 \u043d\u0430\u0439\u0434\u0435\u043d",

    "username_claimed": "red",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
  },

ingvarr.net.ru

As of 2020-04-04, ingvarr.net.ru does not exist anymore. I confirmed using downforeveryoneorjustme.com that the website is down.

  "ingvarr.net.ru": {
    "errorMsg": "\u041f\u043e\u043b\u044c\u0437\u043e\u0432\u0430\u0442\u0435\u043b\u044c \u043d\u0435 \u043d\u0430\u0439\u0434\u0435\u043d",

    "urlMain": "http://ingvarr.net.ru/",
    "username_claimed": "red",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
  },

Redsun.tf

As of 2020-06-20, Redsun.tf seems to be adding random digits to the end of the usernames which makes it pretty much impossible for Sherlock to check for usernames on this particular website.

  "Redsun.tf": {
    "errorMsg": "The specified member cannot be found",
    "errorType": "message",
    "rank": 3796657,

    "urlMain": "https://redsun.tf/",
    "username_claimed": "dan",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis"
  },

Creative Market

As of 2020-06-20, Creative Market has a captcha to prove that you are a human, and because of this Sherlock is unable to check for username on this site because we will always get a page which asks us to prove that we are not a robot.

  "CreativeMarket": {
    "errorType": "status_code",
    "rank": 1896,
    "url": "https://creativemarket.com/users/{}",
    "urlMain": "https://creativemarket.com/",
    "username_claimed": "blue",
    "username_unclaimed": "noonewouldeverusethis7"
  },

pvpru

As of 2020-06-20, pvpru uses CloudFlair, and because of this we get a “Access denied” error whenever we try to check for a username.

  "pvpru": {
    "errorType": "status_code",
    "rank": 405547,
    "url": "https://pvpru.com/board/member.php?username={}&tab=aboutme#aboutme",

  },

Coderwall

As of 2020-07-06, Coderwall returns false positives when checking for an username which contains a period. I have tried to find out what Coderwall’s criteria is for a valid username, but unfortunetly I have not been able to find it and because of this, the best thing we can do now is to remove it.

  "Coderwall": {
