Welcome to the Administrative Assistance reading room. You can request assistance from administrators for handling a variety of problems here and alert them about problems which may require special actions not normally used during regular content editing. Please be patient as administrators are often quite busy with either their own projects or trying to perform general maintenance and cleanup.

You can deal with most vandalism yourself: fix it, then warn the user. If there is repeated vandalism by one user, lots of vandalism on a single page, or vandalism from many users, tell an admin here, or in #wikibooks (say !admin to get attention).

For more general questions and assistance that doesn't require an administrator, please use the Assistance Reading Room.

Hi Artix here[edit]

Hi all,

If you have noticed, I've been globally locked. It was a good run though. I was falsely accused of sockpuppetry that is being unblocked. An appeal is in t he works for an unblock. Unfortunately, the sock block quickly spiralled out of control as other users decided to hunt across wiki and block me on several other wikis. Thus it was proper for a lock by a steward, as it was not worth continuing as a user with this username.

Much thanks to several users who made my time on wikibooks awesome. Shoutout to Atcovi, Pi zero, and QuiteUnusual for being friendly people and helpful to my enrichment. It was awesome editing the articles for the Guide to the Lord of the Rings and the Inheritance Cycle. Some day perhaps, I will come back and finish those books. Cheers. It was a pleasure.

Requesting partial page protection[edit]

Page: Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Grawp. I have a user who's coming in on an IPv6 mobile link and repeatedly adding a rude suggestion to the character page. Because it's IPv6 and mobile, I can't ask for an IP block; he comes in from a different IP each time. Could I have a partial (no IP editors) block on that page for maybe a month? Figure he'll get tired after that time and stop trying. Chazz (talk) 04:21, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

Done for 15 days. Leaderboard (discusscontribs) 09:40, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
