- It's not; if you look at page view statistics, almost no one is actually looking at this article. You may think it is being highly viewed, but that's only because (for some reason) Wikipedia article traffic statistics is erroneously counting calls (?) to index.html as page views.

- Done, but the page wasn't protected, so you could have done it yourself. If you meant to upload the new image in place of the existing image, you should request it on File talk:Www.wikipedia.org screenshot.png. Note that some people might want to keep the old image for historical reference, though. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 01:30, 14 October 2013 (UTC)
- Noticing that W/index.php got tons of hits, I created it as a redirect to this article.
- The redirect was one of many potential spambot targets listed at User:John Reaves/PT, which has cascading protection enabled
- Unknown to me, when a cascade-protected page links to a redirect, cascade protection applies to the redirect's target
- As a result, the entire article was transcluded on John's userpage, and it therefore was fully protected
- Someone notified me of the situation, and the following conversation ensued: message 1, message 2, message 3, and message 4
- I removed the redirect from John's userpage and added full protection directly. This has the safe effect on the redirect but doesn't affect the full article
Erronious traffic coming here.

I've just figured it out - and started a discussion on the Village Pump tech section to see if we can get it fixed:
