Hello, I am John Conner. I would like to improve Wikipedia. But lately, Wikipedia was frequently attacked by destruction-bots. I would like to participate actively and will not bear that. Because for the moment unfortunately too few possibilities for it are ordered to me, I would like to apply as an user with administrator rights. Thank you, --John Conner 1967 11:20, 30 December 2005 (UTC)
I request administrator rights so that I may cosmetically clean up the front page, and clean up spam. --Cherokeekid 05:01, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
