Liberate Candy from protection[edit]

Please remove protection from the Candy article. Reason: The registered editors are not coping. The lead is incorrect both grammatically (confusing singular candy with plural sweets in one breath), factually (for example the lead's flawed definition for "candy" would include marmalade, jam and ice-cream), as well as semantically (equating candy with an individual item of confection but also with a class of items called confectionery). These problems can be fixed only by inclusive involvement of all Wikipedians, by respectful discussion, and by dangling the sword of edit-warring over the heads of lethargic administrators. 86.158.154.74 (talk) 16:08, 4 February 2018 (UTC)

I am not an administrator, so I cannot remove protection from articles. Please ask the protecting administrator Materialscientist. If the protecting administrator is unwilling to remove protection, then list a request on Wikipedia:Requests for page protection#Current requests for reduction in protection level. If you want to make a specific edit to the article, you can make a request on Talk:Candy and add Template:Edit semi-protected. Gulumeemee (talk) 00:02, 5 February 2018 (UTC)
