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.

Template VFD cleanupEdit

Hello, please could someone delete the modules listed at Wikiquote:Votes for deletion/Template:Election results which the closing administrator seems to have missed? I can't ask the closing administrator directly because their talk page is protected. Thanks, 17:03, 28 August 2022 (UTC)

Franciswhicker socksEdit

A guy who's probably named Francis Whicker has been running roughshod on Toy Story and Cars articles these past few months, bloating the articles way past acceptable LOQ limits and in the case of Toy Story 2, has been reverted by several editors as the work of multiple socks. I think harsher action has to be taken because he's not getting it and was even inspired to keep bloating articles because of somebody else's pushback against copyright cleanup.
