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 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.

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Persistent IP vandalism over the past several hours. WikiDan61ChatMe!ReadMe!! 20:03, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

List of programs broadcast by Nickelodeon (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)[edit]

Indefinite semi-protection: IPs continue to shorten "Untitled Dan Kopelman Project" to "Kopelman Project" after previous protection expired. There is no evidence anywhere that supports the shortened title, and the edits do not appear to have been made in good faith. ElectricBurst(Electron firings)(Zaps) 19:28, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

United States presidential election, 2016 (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)[edit]

Semi-protection: This article has been been vandalized on several occasions. But the main reason I am requesting protection is the complexity of the rules and the discussions. We have a long list of rules listed out on each section for what belongs there and we've had a lot of discussions concerning different aspects of the article. Many new and IP users are not familiar with these and constantly revert good edits, add content that shouldn't be there or remove content that shouldn't be there. It's a persistent problem and is preventing the article from becoming stable. PrairieKid (talk) 18:24, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Osmosis Jones (soundtrack) (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)[edit]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Requesting 3 month semi-protection. IP-hopping vandal from Caerphilly, UK, ISP: BT, continues to target articles related to Osmosis Jones. For scope of problem, see this list and scope of problem at article is best exemplified through the edit history from March 12 to present, rather than with diffs. Please note IPs beginning 86.* Length of protection is requested to coincide with similarly requested length on Osmosis Jones and Ozzy & Drix, so that we don't wind up with staggered protection. Though the vandal hasn't been as prolific at this article, it is a target of his and he should be dissuaded. Thanks. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:42, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protection: High level of editing. Mike Rogerson-Hoadley (talk) 15:53, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protection: Would like to have my article semi-protected from other users as I do not wish for them to edit it without my consent. I feel that this comes up a lot when people publish articles and wish to have them protected because unregistered users edit them. Putting a semi-protection on this page would make this easier for me. Mike Rogerson-Hoadley (talk) 15:53, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

This user should not be creating autobiographies. After it gets deleted under WP:CSD#A7, can we have indefinite create-protection instead? Joseph2302 (talk) 18:06, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – It appears that in the run up the general election Charalambous' fan club have been making a concerted effort to add unsourced and favourably POV info to this BLP article. Semi-protection or PC until after May 7th should help make this less of an issue. Bellerophon talk to me 15:24, 28 April 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.

Talk:HI (edit | article | history | links | watch | logs)[edit]

Page had a lot of vandalism two years ago and got an indefinite semiprotect. The protecting admin doesn't want to unprotect because they don't want to deal with the vandalism. But, as a talk page, it shouldn't have any kind of protection without extraordinary justifications. Oiyarbepsy (talk) 03:31, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

That's me btw, comment available on talk page. I mean it, if any admin reading this has an ounce of wikiness, unprotect the talk page. I'll not have it on my conscience. -- zzuuzz (talk) 03:41, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
