Requests for page protection

Current requests for increase in protection level[edit]


Indefinite create protection: WP:DENY. IanDBeacon (talk) 01:37, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Question: IanDBeacon I'm not sure I follow this. I see nothing in the history to indicate that it has been created more than once. IanDBeacon CambridgeBayWeather, Uqaqtuq (talk), Sunasuttuq 10:29, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Hussain Muhammad Ershad[edit]

Indefinite semi-protection: Persistent disruptive editing – this page important on indefinite protection for vandalism and disruptive edit. this page previous protection expire finished. --Nahal(T) 10:50, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Declined – Not enough recent disruptive activity to justify protection. Only two contested edits since protection expired. Too early to be putting it straight back in yet. Kosack (talk) 12:05, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Wow! signal[edit]

Temporary full protection: Content dispute/edit warring – (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) has made three deletions of sourced content in a 24 hour period. User:Deeday-UK has reverted these deletions twice and their reversion have been deleted. I have restored deletions and issue a notice on IP's Talk page. The restoration of content and my notice on IP's Talk page were instantly deleted, with a rather silly comment. David J Johnson (talk) 11:35, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

I made an edit. Somebody objected. I made a different edit, aiming to satisfy both our concerns. Then this user popped up and reverted my second edit without any clear justification. They also left a silly and dishonest message on my talk page. Protecting an article on this user's whim would be absurd. There isn't even any evidence of a dispute, other than this user trying to stir one up. (talk) 11:41, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
@David J Johnson, going straight for full protection is probably an overkill; even semi-protection might not be warranted at this stage, but it's not my call, anyway. @, you've already been reverted twice by two different editors (one was me); now it's time to take a step back and engage in a discussion, if you really want to be constructive. I'm going to restore the last good version and explain on the Talk page what the issue is with your last edit. --Deeday-UK (talk) 12:56, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
Declined – Content dispute. Please use the article's talk page or other forms of dispute resolution. Deeday-UK has raised the issue on the talk page, continue the discussion there to try and resolve the dispute. Kosack (talk) 14:11, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent addition of unsourced or poorly sourced content. Jetstreamer Talk 12:38, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Leisure Park Kallang[edit]

Semi-protection: Persistent disruptive editing. The page has things that are not neutral. I reverted the edits twice but another user reverted it to a false statement. I need your to investigate this. Thanks. TheGreatSG'rean (talk) 12:39, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Declined – Not enough recent disruptive activity to justify protection. The edits are being made by a single user. I've reverted the additions as they are clearly unsourced and do not provide a WP:NPOV and left a message on the user's talk page. Kosack (talk) 14:04, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the prompt response. I don't wanna see an edit war on that page, so I sought help here.TheGreatSG'rean (talk) 15:20, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – pretty consistent target of vandalism, last couple of protections have been pretty short. 4TheWynne (talk contributions) 15:01, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Bob Lazar[edit]

Semi-protection: High level of IP vandalism. (talk) 15:47, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Tom Fitton[edit]

Long-term semi-protection: Persistent vandalism. This is the Wikipedia page of a prominent polemic conspiracy theorist. It should semi-protected at all times. It's incredibly tiresome to have revert vandalism every other day. Snooganssnoogans (talk) 16:23, 16 July 2019 (UTC)


Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – This article is still getting a number of IP/new editors inserting malicious content on a recently-deceased person , alongside well-meaning editors adding dubious-sourced but non-contested information. A two-week protection wouldbe helpful to see if that stops at least the malicious edits. Masem (t) 16:33, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Monsters, Inc.[edit]

Semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – resumed after last protect expired. Geraldo Perez (talk) 16:51, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Current requests for reduction in protection level[edit]

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 "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 changes 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.
  • Requests for removing create protection on 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 fully-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 the rolling archive if you cannot find your request. Only recently answered requests are still listed here.User:Rmhermen/Decrease

Current requests for edits to a protected page[edit]

Ideally, requests should be made on the article talk page rather than here.

  • Unless the talk page itself is protected, you may instead add the appropriate template among {{Edit protected}}, {{Edit template-protected}}, {{Edit extended-protected}}, or {{Edit semi-protected}} to the article's talk page if you would like to make a change rather than requesting it here. Doing so will automatically place the page in the appropriate category for the request to be reviewed.
  • Where requests are made due to the editor having a conflict of interest (COI; see Wikipedia:Suggestions for COI compliance), the {{request edit}} template should be used.
  • Requests to move move-protected pages should be made at Wikipedia:Requested moves, not here.
  • If the discussion page and the article are both protected preventing you from making an edit request, this page is the right place to make that request. Please see the top of this page for instructions on how to post requests.
  • This page is not for continuing or starting discussions regarding content should both an article and its discussion page be protected. Please make a request only if you have a specific edit you wish to make.User:Rmhermen/Edit

Create a level 3 header with a link to the article in question, then a {{Pagelinks}} template and then the reason. It looks like this: Example (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) your request here. ~~~~

Handled requests[edit]

A rolling archive of the last seven days of protection requests can be found at Wikipedia:Requests for page protection/Rolling archive.

"Do you want to take a survey?"[edit]

On Feb. 12, 2005, I did a random pages survey. Out of 100 random pages, only 1 was a U.S. town. That's progress. Three towns in the UK, 1 in Spain and 1 in Portugal also turned up. Overall biographies were the largest category at 22%, followed by geography with 15% total. Then Lists at 7%, Disambiguation pages at 6%.

On Feb. 24, 2006, I repeated the 100 random page survey, this time getting 5 U.S. towns. Overall, geography had 26%, biography 21%, fiction 9%, music 4%, colleges 4%, lists 3% and disambigs 4%. Clearly geography and biography are our largest areas. Music, science and business scored less than I expected. Non-individual History was hardly discernable.

Even by Feb. 2005, 100 out of almost 500,000 was not statistically significant but was as much as I had patience for.

Short To Do list[edit]

Early Anon work, no need to bug the developers[edit]

Up to Dec 16, 2003, all the edits at these anonymous id's were mine (59 edits):

More recently 1,250 or so edits on are apparently all mine. Apparently my new ID is There are undoubtedly many others as the earliest history of many articles was not preserved by the software.
