These kinds of problems can generally be addressed to the admins'
noticeboard (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:AN).  More general
suggestions would go to the Village Pump
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:VP).  As to a list... no, I don't
think this exists.  Perhaps it should be created, probably on Meta.  I
don't know where exactly...

I shall start a thread on the Village Pump to discuss this.
