To assist in the administration of the Wikipedia community and development of the encyclopedia, the community has established a wide range of administration pages. Many of the pages listed below are static in nature and provide information and guidance on certain aspects of maintaining the project. Other pages are related to Wikipedia request departments and need continuous attention from volunteers like you to answer or deal with questions and requests. For a listing of ongoing discussions and current requests, see the dashboard. For other useful directories and indexes, see the directory.
