what do i do?
Sorry, this is not the place to discuss the article on Wikipedia. This wiki is for the documentation, discussion, and development of the MediaWiki software.
For your question, you can ask your community.
Pointing people away from this bureaucrat page for more general topics?
To quote from the top of this page:
Use this page for requests for:
- Promotion (to administrator, bot, bureaucrat, etc.)
- Anything else bureaucrats are needed for (is there anything?)
However, probably because of the unhelpfully vague name of this page, often people would stick into "Other" a bunch of general comments of relevance to the wider wiki, which properly belong on Project:Current issues. I noted this, but @Nemo bis reverted me claiming I was changing the purpose of the page, so seeking comment here before re-instating.
Can't you just rename it to "Requests to bureaucrats" ?
Sure, we could do that too. Presumably people had a reason to keep it at this name since it was created in 2008 though?
