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.

@JackPotte: I alsed for cascading protection, so I can protect my userpage with it. PokestarFan • Talk • Contributions 18:30, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
Cascading protection? That protects all pages transcluded in the page being protected. Pages that transclude the template will not be automatically protected. (that could be very easily abused, if you think about it :)) --George (Talk · Contribs · CentralAuth · Log) 18:34, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
Anyway this checkbox is gray and can't be ticked for this page: Protect pages included in this page (cascading protection). JackPotte (discusscontribs) 18:51, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, nothing seems to be transcluded on the page. --George (Talk · Contribs · CentralAuth · Log) 19:03, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
In that case just unprotect it and delete it under U1. PokestarFan • Talk • Contributions 01:48, 17 August 2017 (UTC)
What you can do is transclude your userspace pages on that page, then ask for cascading protection. Also, {{namespace}} in your sig is misspelt {{namespaee}} :) --George (Talk · Contribs · CentralAuth · Log) 08:33, 17 August 2017 (UTC)
