Administrators' noticeboard
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.

Please rangeblock these set of IP addresses.[edit], and (among other IPs from a similar range) constantly add nonsensical articles featuring fake characters like "Knoah" and have done copious amounts of vandalism to the Sailor Moon article. I suggest these IPs be ranged blocked for a period of time because of their constant vandalism. 03isrflo62410 (talk) 20:16, 13 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Y Done, pages deleted, reverting as well. Thanks. —Justin (koavf)TCM 20:26, 13 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Semi-protection request[edit]

Please protect My Little Pony: Equestria Girls (film): Edit war. --Leonidlednev (talk) 17:25, 15 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

It's not just edit warring; two IP addresses have vandalized the article. 03isrflo62410 (talk) 17:43, 15 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Y Done for six months. —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:47, 15 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Persistent vandalism[edit]


Please block for persistent vandalism of Drake (musician) KonstantinaG07 (talk) 13:32, 17 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Y Done - I've blocked this IP and also protected the Drake (musician) page as well. ~ UDScott (talk) 14:09, 17 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Persistent vandalism[edit]


Please block 2600:1700:BFA1:AEB0:B442:5767:77BD:491B/64 for persistent vandalism, I suggest 6 months because it's been going on for 1 year. Thanks. --Spinoziano (talk) 10:34, 18 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

I blocked for 3 months, because we rarely give very long blocks to IP addresses. Any more experienced admin who wants to change this is welcome to do so. HouseOfChange (talk) 00:24, 19 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
It seems remarkably persistent for an IPV6. I say good call. GMGtalk 00:27, 19 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
@HouseOfChange: you blocked the last IP, I suggested blocking the range: it had already been blocked in 2023. Thanks.--Spinoziano (talk) 08:36, 19 May 2024 (UTC).Reply
@Spinoziano Y Done Blocked for 6 months since not a large range and lots of vandalism. -Lemonaka 11:56, 19 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Vandalism of “Femme Fatales” page.[edit]

This user has vandalized the Femme Fatales (TV series) page. This is the vandalizer I’m talking about: Special:Contributions/

And this is the proof of his vandalism:

Could you please block him indefinitely so that he doesn’t cause any more problems? AdamDeanHall (talk) 19:08, 23 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

How is this vandalism: —Justin (koavf)TCM 01:50, 26 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
He always does too much excessive quotes on Wikiquote pages and that is against the Wikiquote terms. AdamDeanHall (talk) 03:54, 26 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Maybe, but you're giving irrelevant diffs. And while excessive quotations is a real problem, from the perspective of copyright as well as actual quotability, your case is pretty weak with off-topic evidence and that doesn't really constitute vandalism: if he's making good faith edits that are just wrong or bad, that is very different from vandalism. Additionally, looking at all of these edits, these aren't even additions to the quotations as such, but some kind of stage directions and links to Wikipedia or other context. I don't see what the problem is. Lemonaka can you give your perspective here? —Justin (koavf)TCM 03:58, 26 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
He adds bad vulgar and profanity words to the excessive quotes on the Wikiquote pages, and that is the problem he always causes. AdamDeanHall (talk) 04:04, 26 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
I'm a very flawed person and didn't see this in the diffs above. Did I miss something? Can you show me a diff like this? —Justin (koavf)TCM 04:07, 26 May 2024 (UTC)Reply AdamDeanHall (talk) 04:35, 26 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Gotcha, thanks. And in the original, does it say "harlots" or "whores"? I'm not familiar with it. —Justin (koavf)TCM 04:48, 26 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
I didn't think a common character would speak lots of porn-related scripts in common films or series. -Lemonaka 07:41, 26 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
In the original version, it had a "W" word which I am not allowed to say. In my version, it says "harlots". AdamDeanHall (talk) 10:09, 26 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
Are we not allowed to say "whore"? I'm guessing that if you can say it on daytime television, David Bowie can put it in a song title, and it's in the King James Bible at least twice... it's probably okay. GMGtalk 10:43, 26 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
No we are allowed, since there's no censorship on Wikimedia.
I suspected this one is not good,
That's the reason I blocked them. -Lemonaka 13:12, 26 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
