Welcome to the Admin Tools Wiki:Administrator requests page. This page is here to direct you to where you need to go to make various types of requests for actions that require either Administrator or Bureaucrat privileges.


What this page is not for:


What this page is for: Directing you to where you need to go to make the following requests:
(Do NOT make requests directly on this page.)

Moving/renaming protected pages. 
Due to vandals' misuse of the page-move tool, some pages are fully protected and thus can only be renamed by a Bureaucrat or an Administrator. If you can make a compelling case for a page move, or consensus has been reached on the page-to-be-moved's associated talk page, formal requests for the page move can be made at the Admin Tools Wiki:Noticeboard (shortcut → ATW:N). New and/or IP-only contributors wishing to rename an unprotected or semi-protected page, and having appropriate consensus, yet not having the page-move tool available to them, are also welcome to make such requests at the ATW:N.
Deleting pages. 
To propose a page for deletion, all editors must post their proposal either at Category:Candidates for speedy deletion or Category:Candidates for deletion and tagging the page to be deleted with the appropriate template: {{speedydelete}} for the former, and {{delete}} for the latter. Whichever is appropriate, follow the instructions at the applicable Category page.
Ambox notice Note:  If you are an Testing Administrator, you may delete pages in your own userspace, and pages elsewhere that were only created for testing purposes and where the deletion is occurring concomitant with that testing.
Undeleting pages. 
Unless you are a Testing Administrator, an Active Administrator, or a Bureaucrat, you cannot undelete a page. You can however ask here. Do not forget to explain why you want the page undeleted.
Minor edits to protected pages. 
This is mostly on protected templates that can have a substantial impact on the whole wiki if they are changed, so caution is urged when they are modified. To request a change to a locked template, place on the template's associated talk page either {{edit protected}}, if the page is fully protected; or {{edit semi-protected}} if the page is only semi-protected and you are either a new or anonymous user. Be sure to include the full details of the change you are suggesting and the rationale.
Announcements intended for the whole ATW community. 
Site-wide notices are input at Template:Wiki News, which can only be edited by a Bureaucrat or an Active Administrator. If you have an announcement of interest to the entire ATW community, please add it to the Template:Wiki News talkpage being sure to use {{edit protected}} to draw the attention of a Bureaucrat or Administrator.
Importing pages from another wiki. 
While seldom used for content on this wiki, this is an option that is available for bringing in pages from another wiki and preserving their edit histories. However, the import tool is only fully available to those with Bureaucrat or Active Administrator privileges.
If you are a Testing Administrator, you should first read the instructions at  Special:Import  very carefully: This is a powerful and dangerous tool. Testing Administrators are then asked to speak to a Bureaucrat or Active Administrator to determine the consequences of a particular importation. The Bureaucrat or Active Administrator with whom you are speaking will then advise you on proceeding with the importation.
Ultimately, you will be able to perform the importation yourself. You just have to check with one of the maintainers of the site.
If the system tells you that the tool is not available to you, please ask either an Active Administrator or Bureaucrat to perform the importation.
In rare instances, page importation may involve some special actions on the part of Wikia Central to open this option between two MediaWiki projects, so be patient if you wish to make this sort of request. MediaWiki importing tools can sometimes be "buggy", so be gentle on volunteer Administrators doing this task.


Ambox important IMPORTANT:  Unless otherwise specified above, all other requests requiring Administrator/Bureaucrat involvement should be made at the Admin Tools Wiki:Noticeboard (shortcut → ATW:N).
