Administrator action pleaseEdit

Someone block Paharipatrika --DimensionShifter (talk) 22:07, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

  Done by another admin. Vermont (talk) 11:22, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

Page protection requestEdit

Please semi-protect Adolf Hitler. It's being vandalized daily by multiple IP addresses. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ToBeCloud (talkcontribs)

We generally would want to see more than what is happening on that page. I will keep an eye on it. -DJSasso (talk) 13:08, 6 November 2019 (UTC)

SlanderEdit This page is slander and needs to be removed immediately! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:387:1:813::65 (talk) 21:14, 12 November 2019

Why is it slander? Vermont (talk) 11:23, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
Disregard, didn't see the last bit. Deleting. Vermont (talk) 11:24, 13 November 2019 (UTC)


Do we have anyone looking after this? It is a school class whose grasp of English is poor. Macdonald-ross (talk) 10:56, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

Well that's a bit problematic. Do we know who the teacher is? Vermont (talk) 11:22, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
No. I don't usually deal with school projects, but I understand our usual route to the teacher is: block the site, and ask teacher to send us an e-mail. It is within our rules, because only one of the pages was worth keeping (and I have copy-edited it). Macdonald-ross (talk) 13:37, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

Page protection requestEdit

It would probably be a good idea to semi-protect T-Series due to vandalism still regularly occuring due to the PewDiePie vs T-Series subscriber war. Outofmario (talk) 15:56, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

There hasn't been any edits since August. I think semi-protection isn't needed. -DJSasso (talk) 17:47, 13 November 2019 (UTC)

Semi-protect User talk:, User talk: and User talk:

Frequent vandalism. Nigos (talk · contribs) 12:14, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

Both only had one recent edit so don't qualify. -DJSasso (talk) 12:16, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
Same with the one you just added to the section header. We rarely protect unless a page is being hit multiple times by multiple editors during the same day or so. Especially talk pages. None of these qualify. -DJSasso (talk) 12:21, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
