I think Graylies (the user who made the request) CAN'T make any edits because (almost) all of the pages on the wiki are protected(?)
I think he just needs a help (so that the current admin can unprotect pages,) rather than becoming an admin.
I'm writing this message because I'm not sure how to comment on the page to advise him. Maybe I should edit his page(?)
Hey there! Thanks for trying to create a page from a red-link very quickly. Just to stop you from putting in some unnecessary work, however, I wanted to let you know that Help:Formatting text/instructions was being created by page move, and so requires no work on your part.
