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.

Locking an alternate[edit]

Per some comments on a sister project I've been infromed that on smaller sister project there is a move to eliminate alternate accounts because of concerns that are confusing and could lead to potential problems. With thhat in mind I am requesting that User:Sfan00_IMG is locked on Wikibooks. The user page redirects to the one for my main account anyway.
