What this page is for
  • Protecting/unprotecting pages.
    Highly visible pages or content that may have links from outside websites are encouraged to have some level of protection. This can also include a request for administrators to try and calm down an edit war.
  • Moving/renaming protected pages and files.
    Due to vandals' mis-use of the page move tool, some pages are protected from being renamed except by an administrator. If you can make a compelling case for a page move, or consensus has been reached on the respective discussion page related to the page you think needs to be renamed, formal requests for the page move can happen here. New contributors to this wiki or "anonymous" users wishing to rename a page that don't have the page move option available to them yet are also welcome to make such requests on this page.
  • Announcements that are intended to be across the whole wiki.
    This appears on MediaWiki:Sitenotice, and should be something that would be of interest to the whole community.
  • Edits to global vandalism prevention tools
    Global vandalism prevention tools are managed on this wiki and apply to other wikis in the Weird Gloop network. These include the Title blacklist, Spam blacklist and Abusefilters.
What this page is not for
  • Requests to become an administrator.
    If you are interested in learning what an administrator does or how you can become one, please visit Meta:Administrators for information about administrators and Meta:Requests for adminship for the process to become an administrator.
  • General discussions about administrator behaviour.
    Most policy discussions, including policies that govern administrators, ought to be started on the Forums and kept to that forum for input from the larger community.
