Off topic requests[edit]

With all those erroneous edit requests here I wonder how that happens, the page is rather boring for folks who are not interested in the wonders of MediaWiki access rights. Somewhere is a misleading link that should be replaced by WP:Help desk or similar. –Be..anyone (talk) 12:56, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

@Be..anyone: Here's my guess as to how it happens. If an IP or new account tries to edit a semi-protected page, they see MediaWiki:Protectedpagetext. Two of the links in the right column of that message lead to Wikipedia:User access levels to explain auto-confirmation. That page is itself semi-protected, so if the user loses track at that point, and mistakenly clicks to edit Wikipedia:User access levels, the software shows MediaWiki:Protectedpagetext again and the user ends up posting here. -- John of Reading (talk) 14:51, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
"An established user" could be replaced by "Another editor" on the system message, the right column is rather convoluted for what users presumably want when they try to grok these instructions. ;-)  Be..anyone (talk) 15:55, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Re: Confirmed users[edit]

I have a question: who can set a user to be confirmed users? A bureaucrat friend of mine said that the option was greyed out when he tried to do that. Thanks. Bennylin (talk) 07:42, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
