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.

File:Cydia logo.png (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)[edit]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – We are having a torrent of sporadic vandalism. It is not heavy but it is persistent; I could certainly do without it. The vandals aren't all IP users; two accounts, NickChheung and Leem9166 who have no other edits, have also been engaged. Codename Lisa (talk) 04:18, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected for a period of 1 week. After 1 week the page will be automatically unprotected. I'd also like to congratulate NickChheung and Leem9166 for becoming engaged. Though I'm not sure what that has to do with this. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 04:43, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Lo imperdonable (2015 telenovela) (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)[edit]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Could be a protection until April 24?. The telenovela has not even premiered, and several ips and new users are adding information speculative and without references. Philip J Fry Talk 03:48, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected for a period of 1 week. After 1 week the page will be automatically unprotected. CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 04:40, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Pending changes: Persistent long-term vandalism. While not as much recently, it would be useful to prevent vandals of this disambiguation page. IllogicMink (talk) 02:36, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

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

Semi-protection: The article has regrettably suffered from persistent long-term vandalism and disruptive editing. Within just 24 hours after a previous six-month temporary semi-protection template was lifted this month in April 2015, the vandalism started up again, with four instances on 14 April and 15 April 2015 (UK time). A view of the public logs confirms that for several years the article has suffered from persistent long-term vandalism and disruptive editing. Kind Tennis Fan (talk) 00:40, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – For the last 3 days an IP hopper has been adding garbage content to the article, like statements about the series' cancellation: "This was because millions of hypernized people across the country were watching the show too much (and the show's crew couldn't take it much longer)."

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.

Nike, Inc. (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)[edit]

Unprotection: Has been indefinitely semi-protected for nearly four years, with only two prior instances of protection. Already asked the protecting admin with no response. Conifer (talk) 23:35, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

John Basedow (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views)[edit]

Unprotection: protection in force in 5 years and no sign of IP editors on talk, in fact we have the opposite that a SPA & COI editor is abusing the article and talk WP:OWN and censoring genuine concerns. Widefox; talk 07:39, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
