Report vandalismVotes for deletion

This is a messageboard for all administrators.


Please feel free to report incidents, a complaint about an administrator, or anything you want administrators to be aware of.

Please be aware that these pages aren't the place to bring disputes over content or requests for a mediation between another editor and you — we aren't referees. You are better to talk with that editor by mail or on talk, or ask other editors their opinion on Village pump.

The chief purpose of this page is to allow admins to ask each other for help and/or information, to communicate ideas, and for admin talk to happen.

However, any user of Wikiquote may post here. Admins are not a club of elites, but normal editors with some additional technical abilities. Anyone is free to use it to talk to admins as a group. Please feel free to leave a message.

If you do, please sign and date all contributions, using the Wikiquote special form "~~~~", which translates into a signature and a time stamp automatically.

To request special assistance from an administrator, like deletion, use appropriate pages or tags.

To request assistance from a specific administrator, see [[User talk:Whoever]].

If there is another page which is a more natural location for the discussion of a particular point, please start the discussion there, and only put a short note of the issue, and a link to the relevant location, on this page. Put another way, to the extent possible, discussions are better off held somewhere else, and announced here. This will avoid spreading discussion of one topic over several pages (thereby making them harder to follow), and also reduce the rate of changes to this page.

Missing file on QOTDEdit

Hi, today's QOTD on the main page has a missing picture which was deleted on Commons. Could it be removed or replaced? Also see section on Talk:Main Page. Thanks, Aranya (talk) 17:50, 10 July 2021 (UTC)

The missing image has now been replaced. ~ ♌︎Kalki ⚓︎ 21:30, 10 July 2021 (UTC)

Rugrats vandalismEdit


Rugrats is the target of misinformation from unreliable sources and attacking users. Indefinite protection of the article and indefinite/global blocking of the IPs is appropriate. DawgDeputy (talk) 11:57, 13 July 2021 (UTC)

I've protected the page for a month. ~ UDScott (talk) 12:41, 13 July 2021 (UTC)
I recommend making the protection of that page indefinite. Considering how these IP vandals keep ranting and raving in utter denial, and denying that IMDB can easily be doctored like Wikipedia and Wikiquote, they will not stop until they get their way or are otherwise dealt with for good.

Please protect (or delete) User talk: excessive vandalism from WMF-banned user. --Mtarch11 (talk) 03:29, 15 July 2021 (UTC)

Please protect Past and Talk:Past: excessive vandalism from WMF-banned user. Thanks, --Mtarch11 (talk) 05:53, 19 July 2021 (UTC)


Please delete: Talk:Saints: WMF-banned user target --Mtarch11 (talk) 06:32, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

IP user (talkcontribscentralauthpage movesblock userblock log)

This IP constantly violates copyvio and vandalizes quotes by adding unnecessary emphasis, and no matter how many warning messages I send it, it ignores them. This user must be blocked indefinitely. DawgDeputy (talk) 12:28, 23 July 2021 (UTC)

I have blocked the IP for a month - should the behavior continue after that point, longer blocks can be considered. ~ UDScott (talk) 12:32, 23 July 2021 (UTC)
