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.

Remove User:Ivan Shmakov subpages[edit]

I no longer need the following drafts in my userspace here (having imported them to a non-WMF wiki) and thus request their deletion.

Thanks in advance.

Template:PDF version[edit]

It's been three days since my message on Template talk:PDF version#Vapirware, and no opposition. But I can't solve the problem myself because this template is protected: High-impact page: used on countless books. In fact it's used into 198 pages, normally the books covers, which are the most viewed pages.

Nevertheless I would suggest to allow this template to be semi-protected, to be modified by confirmed users like me. JackPotte (discusscontribs) 03:23, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

I've downgraded the protection - QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 09:06, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
Thank you, I could operate the modification as well, and Category:Books with PDF version required includes the expected content. JackPotte (discusscontribs) 14:14, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
