Noticeboard for Regular Editors ABOUT Admins[edit]

Has there ever been a suggestion for a noticeboard specifically for regular editors only to discuss and even take action against less-than-honest Administrators. It seems to me that there should be a way for regular users to simply deal with issues with Admins in such a way that cannot simply be blocked by other Admins. There should even, in extreme cases, be a way for regular editors to have Admins demoted. I believe that this would create a much more fair and democratic sense of checks and balances on Wikipedia that is much needed in the increasingly hostile and unfair atmosphere of the site. This problem seems to get worse every year and there really does need to be a way for regular editors to keep things fair. Years ago I made the suggestion of "term limits" on some noticeboard, which was aggressively shot down. I simply ask that a mature, level-headed and non-petty Admin takes a serious consideration to this idea.--Deoliveirafan (talk) 02:59, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

@Deoliveirafan: This should be covered at WP:ADMINABUSE. --Redrose64 (talk) 08:54, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

WP:DISCOGSTYLE dormant[edit]

Hi there, I am member of the Discography WikiProject and while I edit discography projects I always turn to this, however it has became dormant. I beliebe this should not by any means be dormant and should be an active guideline, discographies should be similar so as they are easily recognised from article to article. Can someone help me make this active again and also help me make it more of a guideline or standard for other discography pages? I have no idea how to make it active again and since hardly anyone patrols/watches this page I got no response there. SilentDan (talk) 15:42, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

@SilentDan297: Please see the note at the top of this page: "this page is for discussion about the village pump only". A better page would be WT:COUNCIL, possibly WP:VPM, but WT:ALBUMS is possibly more relevant. --Redrose64 (talk) 20:33, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
@Redrose64: Apologies, I will start the discussion on one of the suggested pages instead, thank you. SilentDan (talk) 20:36, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Please address formatting issues which mean that part of opening paragraphs are obscured by the page tag infobox. 31.53.146.75 (talk) 13:16, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

I don't see that any opening paragraphs are obscured. At Wikipedia:Village pump (all), I do see that the right-hand end of the second box (Other help and discussion locations) is off screen: this is in Template:Village pump. --Redrose64 (talk) 14:38, 13 January 2015 (UTC)
Reverted the 2nd box... I should have caught that. It was an old edit by Sardanaphalus who has no concept of smaller screens. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 16:28, 13 January 2015 (UTC)
Exactly. My screen is 1280px wide - I should not have lost anything by your edits to Template:Village pump, but I did. Where were they discussed? Not here, and not at Template talk:Village pump either, I'll warrant. And yet again, comparing two versions is damn-near impossible because of your obsession with rewriting all the code to suit your own preferential layout. --Redrose64 (talk) 00:13, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
Reverted back to old format. -- [[User:Edokter]] {{talk}} 01:24, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
