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.

Vandalism In Progress[edit]

User Poppa Zit is a return copy of the banned user Van deGraaf. We may need CheckUser to block his IP. Chazz (talk) 17:00, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Indefblocked, as a first step. --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 17:26, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
@Pi zero: Tagging his contribs with {{delete}}. Note pagemove vandalism that I cannot undo. —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:28, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
I think I've got it all. --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 20:33, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Pella Kanchett (discuss · email · contribs · logs · count) is another sockpuppet. --Ixfd64 (discusscontribs) 22:20, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Poppa Zit (discuss · email · contribs · logs · count) was the first one. @QuiteUnusual: checkuser? --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 22:48, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Checked - several socks have been blocked. There's some IP address hopping going on so a hard block on the IP won't work. QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 08:39, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
