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.

Please check sockpuppets editing Unicode/Versions

I suspect the following users are sockpuppets (they are vandalism-only accounts, except User:Paul Benedict Alferez; also the sockpuppeteer used several IPs):

Copyright violation solved?

Mohammad.Hosein.J.Shia is shouting that the copyright violation at Supplementary mathematics/Geometry has been solved (Special:diff/4277702). Therefore I request the deletion of all former revisions that include copyright violations. Thank you for the attention. MathXplore (discusscontribs) 16:50, 11 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A blocked user is playing with his/her own talk page. Please remove talk page access. Thank you for the attention. MathXplore (discusscontribs) 07:26, 17 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Several IPs are repeating non-constructive trolling to this user talk page. I suggest semi-protection and/or a block to the IPs at a certain range. MathXplore (discusscontribs) 10:54, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I went ahead and semi-protected the talk page—let's keep an eye on it and related pages. —Kittycataclysm (discusscontribs) 13:08, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you for your response and action. MathXplore (discusscontribs) 13:25, 14 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The user is spamming at the edit summary, so I think the edit summary should be removed. MathXplore (discusscontribs) 07:47, 17 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
