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.

Template {{Incomplete}} seems to have been hacked

G'day Guys Please see here:

(amongst other pages using the template)

Could an Admin look into this please, thanks Samuel.dellit (discusscontribs) 09:35, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]

I can't see a problem, and the Template hasn't been changed in years. Can you explain what you are seeing please? Thanks - QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 10:07, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]
The issue has now disappeared, but I took a screengrab at the time, in place of the Incomplete badge was (in bright red): Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Fuerdai My testicles keep going up and down up down up down up down' not found.

Thanks. That was caused by vandalism to Module:Message box, which was reverted removing the issue. I've now semi-protected the module as it appears to be a target for vandalism. QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 14:45, 20 September 2021 (UTC)[]
