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.

m:Requests for comment/Global de-adminship for Jusjih[edit]

A user is requesting to "global de-admin" (sorry I really don't know how likely if this could be happened) @Jusjih: which in requestor's claim, has many disruptive and abusive behaviors in several Chinese-language projects and Meta-Wiki, the requestor is also mentioned en.wikiquote here where Jusjih is also an administrator, but didn't say anything else on their en.wikiquote's behaviors. Do any of our adminships that may or may not familiar Jusjih's works know how to resolve it? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 05:17, 29 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Liuxinyu970226, Thank you so much for bringing this discussion on Meta to the attention of those who read this busy notice-board. It is not often that we are informed by someone who is not a wmf-employee of events happening on other wmf-projects.
I myself cannot participate on Meta where I am infinitely blocked (I am probably not unique), but I still appreciate being notified since the person being discussed (@Jusjih:) is also a WQ-admin. However, I would like to ask other participants here if it wouldn't be better to post this on the Village Pump for those who do not read this politics-noticeboard
Do others here have an opinion they would like to share? Ottawahitech (talk) 13:10, 4 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Ottawahitech: you can see the discussion by clicking on section title. There seems to be a dispute in some zh-wikis, where some of their admins complained about Jusijih, also an admin there, using this RfC. The general admin response to the complaint seems to be OFFS, with which I agree. HouseOfChange (talk) 03:22, 5 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Re: you can see the discussion
I know I can view the discussions on META. What I cannot do is participate.
What do those mean - can you provide a link please
Re: User:Jusjih
Jusijih is not an admin here on Wikiquote, but Jusjih is Ottawahitech (talk) 14:00, 5 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Re Jusjih/Jusijih, my bad spelling. RfC = Request for Comment, e.g. w:Wikipedia:Requests for comment. OFFS = "Oh, for fuck's sake." I guess FFS is more common. HouseOfChange (talk) 14:15, 5 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Inappropriate user name[edit]

User User:CUMCUMCUMui has an inappropriate user name. – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 20:00, 9 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]


on Talk:Pope Urban II. Page must be deleted. EthanGaming7640 19:24, 13 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@EthanGaming7640: Have you reported this on Wikiquote:Vandalism in progress. Just curious. Ottawahitech (talk) 18:15, 14 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I had not. EthanGaming7640 23:06, 14 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
May I ask why not? Your heading suggests that this post is related to vandalism, is it not? Ottawahitech (talk) 14:33, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
