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.

Hi Artix here

Hi all,

If you have noticed, I've been globally locked. It was a good run though. I was falsely accused of sockpuppetry that is being unblocked. An appeal is in t he works for an unblock. Unfortunately, the sock block quickly spiralled out of control as other users decided to hunt across wiki and block me on several other wikis. Thus it was proper for a lock by a steward, as it was not worth continuing as a user with this username.

Much thanks to several users who made my time on wikibooks awesome. Shoutout to Atcovi, Pi zero, and QuiteUnusual for being friendly people and helpful to my enrichment. It was awesome editing the articles for the Guide to the Lord of the Rings and the Inheritance Cycle. Some day perhaps, I will come back and finish those books. Cheers. It was a pleasure.


Please, block this IP range Special:Contributions/2401:4900:0:0:0:0:0:0/33 or protect Ada Programming against anonymous editions. It has been vandalized hundreds of times by that IP range. --ManuelGR (discusscontribs) 15:56, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

I applied a short(ish) block to that range, and also put a long(ish) semi-protection on that page. --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 23:59, 12 July 2020 (UTC)

Please block. --Jules (Mrjulesd) 11:15, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

The IP was given a fairly short (but also quite thoroughgoing) block by global sysop Turkmen. --Pi zero (discusscontribs) 12:25, 28 July 2020 (UTC)
