|This information page describes "office actions" taken by the Wikimedia Foundation pursuant to the Wikimedia Foundation official policy.|
|This page in a nutshell: Sometimes the Wikimedia Foundation may have to delete, protect, suppress a revision, blank a page, block/globally lock a user, or take other actions without going through the normal site/community process(es) to do so. These changes may be temporary or permanent measures to prevent legal trouble or personal harm and should not be undone by any user without permission from the Wikimedia Foundation.|
On the subject of modifying office actions, the Foundation states "Wikimedia administrators and others who have the technical power to revert or edit office actions are strongly cautioned against doing so. Unauthorized modifications to office actions will not only be reverted, but may lead to sanctions by the Foundation, such as revocation of the rights of the individual involved. When in doubt, community members should consult the Foundation member of staff that performed the office action, or their line manager. However, details regarding an office action are only shared to the extent that they do not compromise the safety of users, the public or the project."
