Please do not post those requests here!
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.
Can a few of the admins here be a bit more active?
Request for deletion needs to be closed?
Please help me move content in Wikibook "Sensory Systems"
I am blacklisted.
[Global proposal] m.Wikibooks.org: (all) Edit pages
Hi, this message is to let you know that, on domains like en.m.wikipedia.org, unregistered users cannot edit. At the Wikimedia Forum, where global configuration changes are normally discussed, a few dozens users propose to restore normal editing permissions on all mobile sites. Please read and comment!
Sorry for writing in English but I thought as administrators you would be interested. Thanks, Nemo 22:26, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
- Strongly Oppose Spam and Vandalism are bound to increase. Not to forget all the Selfies; rattled edits and pics. 
- Sorry Nemo to mention it here, but the fact apart from what I mentioned in the poll, is this will increase pressure which already prevails on reviewers and admins, bureaus, autos. Further it will give chance to the current vandals to mortify what and how they feel like. Basically ENJOY :( ... Vishal Bakhai - Works 00:31, 19 March 2015 (UTC)
Is the template namespace exempted from revision control? Why so? (In fact I see it beneficial to have the Wikijunior rule apply to that namespace) It messed me up today as I saw an edit pending review, a template red link but no template creation on the review page. The server side hadn't refreshed yet. Page creation wouldn't be p.r. listed but the template had a subsequent edit.
I noticed also that the link to "External tools: Transclusion count" on the "What links here" page seems to be broken. --Panic (discuss • contribs) 01:30, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
What are we suppose to do with the images/pages here?
- I think yes , as long as it is within the Commons rules.--Leaderboard (discuss • contribs) 17:29, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
- Leaderboard is correct - the critical issue is that they meet the Commons rules. Therefore, you cannot upload anything to Commons that is Fair Use (it will be tagged here as Fair Use). I suggest you use the Commons Helper here which takes across all the attribution, etc., correctly. QuiteUnusual (discuss • contribs) 10:28, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
