Requests for page protection
Shortcuts:

This page is for requesting that a page, file or template be fully protected, create protected (salted), semi-protected, added to pending changes, move-protected, template protected (template-specific), upload protected (file-specific), or unprotected. Please read up on the protection policy. Full protection is used to stop edit warring between multiple users or to prevent vandalism to high-risk templates, semi-protection and pending changes are usually used only to prevent IP and new user vandalism (see the rough guide to semi-protection), and move protection is used to stop pagemove revert wars.

After a page has been protected, the protection is listed in the page history and logs with a short description indicating why it was protected, and the article is listed on Special:Protectedpages. Further discussion should take place on the Talk page of the article. In the case of full protection due to edit warring, admins do not revert to specific versions of the page, except to get rid of obvious vandalism.

Instructions

If you would like to request a page to be protected or unprotected, please follow the following steps:

  1. If you are requesting unprotection, you must ask the protecting admin first for unprotection. If the admin is unable to respond and/or lower protection then you can list your request on this page.
  2. Add a level 4 header (i.e. ==== {{lx|Example}} ====, where "x" stands for the namespace) at the top of either the protection or unprotection list and place one of the templates from the table below within the header. Please make sure you have spelled the name of the article properly; a common error stems from mistaken requests for the protection of redirects, particularly capitalised ones.
  3. If you are requesting protection, place the type of request (full protection, semi-protection, pending changes, move protection) and a brief reason for your request below your header.
  4. Please do not add arbitrary requests for a protection expiry time to your request, or request indefinite protection arbitrarily.
    • If there is a reason for a page to be protected for a certain amount of time, such as protecting a usertalk page until the user is unblocked, please make this clear.
    • If you are requesting indefinite semi-protection or pending changes, be aware that it is only applied to articles with endemic and endless vandalism problems which multiple increasing periods of temporary semi-protection or pending changes have failed to stop.
    • Note that different expiry times can now be set for edit and move-protections, so an article can, for example, be semi-edit-protected for a week and full-move-protected indefinitely.
  5. Sign your request with four tildes ~~~~ and save.
  • Note: this is not a venue for continuing an argument from elsewhere. If a request contains excessive arguing, is being used for edit-warring or content disputes, contains personal attacks or uncivil comments, or any other unrelated discussion, it will be removed from this page.

Current requests for increase in protection level[edit]

Place requests for new or upgrading pending changes, semi-protection, full protection, move protection, create protection, or template editor protection at the TOP of this section. Check the rolling archive of fulfilled and denied requests or, failing that, the page history if you cannot find your request. Only recently answered requests are still listed here.

UFC 183 (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)[edit]

Temporary semi-protection: Due to the historic high level of IP vandalism in UFC events (specially PPV), I'm here asking for protection for their next PPV event, due to happen today. Not only it is a PPV event (big chances of vandalism as mentioned), but it will feature two of the most popular fighters in the sport, making pretty sure that there will be vandalism during the event broadcast. As I've witnessed them several times, I'm here asking for protection before the event starts to avoid a huge list of edits that are done only to revert unnecessary vandalism. Thanks.

Monty Oum (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)[edit]

Temporary pending changes: Mr. Oum was hospitalized early this week per announcement from RoosterTeeth Productions for which Mr. Oum is an employee. From the information that has been released he is in critical condition with a low chance of recovery. I Think it would be wise to place the article under temporary pending changes protection. Dcheagletalkcontribs 03:31, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Declined – Pages are not protected pre-emptively. Jackmcbarn (talk) 03:41, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Leviathan (2014 film) (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)[edit]

Temporary semi-protection; Persistent and enthusiastic IP editors of non-English origin. This foreign film has just been nominated for an Academy Award in foreign films, and enthusiastic IPs of non-English origin have been making numerous non-grammatical changes. The film is not on DVD yet so there are no regular editors to help with clean-ups to grammar. It is getting exhausting after several days, and a short 10-20days semi-protect should get the film past the Academy Awards in February. By then open up the editing again.

  • Comment - Editor has rushed here to seek semi- protection without allowing discussion on Talk Page which is ongoing to resolve problem. In any case editors involded are all well established editors with accounts so this request would achieve nothing.Tmol42 (talk) 20:44, 30 January 2015 (UTC)

Current requests for reduction in protection level[edit]

Shortcuts:
Please post requests in this section for removing or reducing the protection level of a page if the protecting admin is inactive or you have already asked them.
  • To find out the username of the admin who protected the page click on "View history" at the top of the page, then click on "View logs for this page" which is under the title of the page. The protecting admin is the username in blue before the words "protected", "changed protection level" or "pending changes". If there are a number of entries on the log page, you might find it easier to select "Protection log" or "Pending changed log" from the dropdown menu in the blue box.
  • Requests to downgrade full protection to template protection on templates and modules can be directed straight here, you do not need to ask the protecting admin first.
  • Unprotection requests for redlinked articles are generally assisted by having a draft version of the intended article prepared beforehand.
  • If you want to make spelling corrections or add uncontroversial information to a protected page please add {{Edit protected}} to the article's talk page, along with an explanation of what you want to add to the page. If the talk page is protected please use the section below.

Check here if you cannot find your request. Only recently answered requests are still listed here.
