WP:UAA / WP:RFPP[edit]

Usernames for administrator attention




Comment: i will leave this to another patrolling admin, but unless the name is meant to say that a user named "Gay kid" is GAY, then, and although not the best of usernames I am having trouble blocking as a blatant and serious inappropriate username. I'd recommend discussing with the user on their talk page the concerns and encourage them changing their name voluntarily. Also the only edit, whilst not amazing, isn’t jumping out at me and it was in the user sandbox. NJA | talk 15:17, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Comment: It says that the user talk page is blacklisted due to the "is gay" in the title, and as such only administrators can edit it; would the user be able to respond? 331dot (talk) 15:21, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Requests for page protection

Current requests for increase in protection level[edit]

Israeli citizenship law[edit]

Indefinite extended confirmed: Arbitration enforcement – I think this article is Arab-Israeli conflict related as it relates to Israeli citizenship. Abote2 (talk) 21:17, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

I would say it is broadly construed to ARBPIA but not reasonably construed, and since there was no specific disruptive activity recently, I would decline the request.--Ymblanter (talk) 12:28, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Not done (for the bot). El_C 13:56, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Operation Bulmus 6[edit]

Indefinite extended confirmed: Arbitration enforcement – WP:ARBPIA3#500/30. nableezy - 00:06, 25 May 2019 (UTC) 00:06, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protected indefinitely. El_C 13:50, 25 May 2019 (UTC)


Temporary Full-protection: disruptive editing - Disruptive templates have been placed on to the page, news article, advertising, multiple issues templates added. -- Gearbox162 (talk) 10:06, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

I think pending changes is working as intended.--Ymblanter (talk) 12:31, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Not done (for the bot). El_C 13:56, 25 May 2019 (UTC)


Semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Page blanking. Interstellarity (talk) 11:04, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Seems to have already stopped, and, given the nature of the page, I do not think semi-protection is a good solution.--Ymblanter (talk) 12:30, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Not done (for the bot). El_C 13:55, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Black people[edit]

Indefinite semi-protection: Persistent vandalism - came back after a year long semi-protection expired, and some recent vandalism is offensive enough to have been revdeleted. The protection log also goes back many years, so I can't see this problem ever going away. Entranced98 (talk) 14:47, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Semi-protected indefinitely. El_C 14:51, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Wando High School[edit]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism. CLCStudent (talk) 14:56, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Semi-protected for a period of 4 days, after which the page will be automatically unprotected. NJA | talk 15:04, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Suhail Al Zarooni[edit]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent addition of unsourced or poorly sourced content – COI and NPV violations. User:Afrazwarsi, a SPA, has made numerous unsourced edits to this article over the last few weeks, removing some sourced content and adding unsourced content. He states he is the Chief of Staff & Attorney General of the article's subject. When protecting the page, please scrub the article of his contributions. Thank you!. Orville1974 (talk) 15:05, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protected for a period of one month, after which the page will be automatically unprotected. El_C 15:08, 25 May 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:Valley2city/admintools/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:Valley2city/admintools/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.
