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, it is almost always a good idea to ask the protecting admin first before listing a page here.
  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, template editor protection, or feedback 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.

Rohingya people (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views)[edit]

Add to pending changes: long running disruptive activity going back to at least November 2012. Look at the article history [1]. One red linked account or IP address after another. Don't know if this is a single person (and without check user, can't tell) or just an article that invites disruptive editing.Volunteer Marek (talk) 06:22, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protection: Permanent and constant vandalism. Zozs (talk) 02:22, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism. RolandR (talk) 02:01, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected for a period of one week. After one week the page will be automatically unprotected. --Bongwarrior (talk) 02:13, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protection IP continuously vandalising. NickGibson3900 - Talk - Sign my Guestbook 02:00, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected for a period of one week. After one week the page will be automatically unprotected. --Bongwarrior (talk) 02:13, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Boku no Pico (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views)[edit]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Most of the time this page is just vandalized by ip users, not much contributions (except for a few registered users) on this page anymore. VeNeMousKAT (talk|contribs) 00:20, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

2014–15 Liverpool F.C. season (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views)[edit]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Addititon of unsourced material as well as changes made against current sources. QED237 (talk) 23:40, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

The Pinkprint (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views)[edit]

Move protection: Page title dispute/move warring – The album has been called both "Pinkprint" and "Pink Print" in sources. There was a request for move which got consensus to use the title "Pinkprint". Since then two editors have moved the page to the other name, against consensus and ignoring the new discussion, which is also in favor of the first name. It would be good to protect the page until an official source comes with the final name of the album, to prevent move warring. 2Flows (talk) 22:53, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Homosexuality and Roman Catholicism (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views)[edit]

Temporary full protection: Content dispute/edit warring – Ongoing edit warring. I participated in a few reverts, but have confined my more recent interventions to the talk page. ImprovingWiki (talk) 22:50, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Nofel Izz (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views)[edit]

Temporary full protection: Edit-warring. Johnmoor (talk · contribs) has ceased to participate in talk page discussions, and when he has they've been WP:IDHT. I'll go ahead and repeat what I did with Grammarly (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views): List all the sources, identify them by type and quality, and indicate what we should and should not include in the article based upon those sources. Then I'll use an RfC to get consensus for the changes.--Ronz (talk) 21:26, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Most contributors do not agree with Ronz (talk · contribs) here—Talk:Nofel Izz#Puffery, but he had gone ahead reverting everyone else who challenges his contributions. Most of the sections on the article talk page were started by him, wanting other contributors to address his concerns or support them, but when others gives a contrary view, he ignores them and pushes on with his views. —JOHNMOORofMOORLAND (talk) 21:40, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Please don't disrupt this with your accusations. You had the same complaints with Grammarly. We'll use the same solution that worked there. --Ronz (talk) 21:50, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Allowing some of your views to stand on Grammarly does not mean that I agree with you on them, it only means that I want a stable version to let other contributors improve upon it. Thank you. —JOHNMOORofMOORLAND (talk) 22:29, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Declined – Consider dispute resolution. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 07:47, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

André Schürrle (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views)[edit]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism of a BLP, which has ranged from silliness with statistics to quite malicious defamation which I obviously shan't repeat here. IPs and new accounts have being serving more harm than good, as well as possible sockpuppetry of a (positive) POV nature (recurring addition of the adjective "clever"). '''tAD''' (talk) 19:39, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected for a period of 3 weeks. After 3 weeks the page will be automatically unprotected. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 07:36, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Temporary semi-protection: IP provides tags and restores them but does not take part in discussion. Thnx Serten (talk) 18:36, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Declined – Not enough recent disruptive activity to justify protection. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 07:28, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Global Community Communications Alliance (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views)[edit]

Pending changes: Vandalism: Reapplying for Pending Changes. After initial request was denied an IP address removed the majority of the article's content and replaced with non-neutral content. IP address also removed all of the article's references. Can you please re-look at this issue? Proboynow3 (talk) 11:30 22 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Automated comment: A request for protection/unprotection was recently made for this page, and was denied at some point within the last 8 days.—cyberbot I NotifyOnline 18:34, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

The Amazing World of Gumball (season 1) (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views)[edit]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Within 2 hours of page protection being lifted, an IPv6 editor submitted this deliberate misinformation. Note for example they change the airdates for "The Dress" to September 19, 2011 and "The Genius" to February 7, 2012, though TVGuide confirms the previous dates (May 23, 2011 and October 10, 2011) were correct. No explanation or source from vandal. Please also note that all the Gumball articles were protected for persistent vandalism, so if any are set to expire, I'd like to ask they be renewed as well. That would include: The Amazing World of Gumball, The Amazing World of Gumball (season 2) and The Amazing World of Gumball (season 3). I'm not sure what a reasonable amount of protection would be, but given how quickly the article was vandalized after protection was lifted, I think protection for a longer term might be warranted. Thank you!. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 17:49, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

The Rob, Arnie, and Dawn Show (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs|views)[edit]

Semi-protection: Persistent anonymous IP vandalism. Page was semi-protected from 23 April 2013 to 23 April 2014. Semi-protection was very effective. Since the protection's expiration there has been continued removal of properly formatted and referenced/sourced information from the page. My edit/revert on 16:44, 22 August 2014‎ restored the information which has been most vulnerable to vandals. Mrwhite22 (talk) 17:06, 22 August 2014 (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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
