Semiprotection of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.[edit]

I don't think this was necessary. The vandal—who, admittedly, is unusually persistent—has a static IP, and I'd already blocked him seven hours before you protected. The other anonymous edits since the last semi-protection lapsed mostly weren't retained, but they weren't vandalism - I can in fact find only one instance of vandalism not by this IP since early July.

The previous semiprotection was also about eight hours after I'd blocked the only vandal. That was harmless, though, and the current protection isn't for two reasons -

  • The length of that protection happened to coincide with the time I'd blocked for, while this one is two months longer. I'm somewhat concerned that when my block expires in a month, he'll just latch onto some article that I'm not watching instead.
  • The show's new season starts in about a week, and there'll inevitably be a large increase in editing. Yes, there'll be some vandals, but anon edits to this article have generally been productive in the past.

Will you consider lifting protection, or at least shortening it? —Cryptic 21:36, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

Ahh, sorry, I looked on the talk page but didn't check the block log, there wasn't a new block message. I'll take protection off. I shouold probably have just blocked anyway, got that one wrong! Thanks for letting me know. GedUK  11:17, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
