Requests for page protection

This page is for requesting that a page, file or template be fully protected, create protected (salted), extended confirmed protected, 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 to have a page protected, have a page's existing protection level lowered or raised, or would like to submit an edit request for a protected page, please follow these steps (note: if you enable the Twinkle gadget for your Wikipedia account, this process can be largely automated for you):

  1. If you are requesting unprotection, the correct protocol is to ask the protecting administrator first for unprotection (the admin's user account name can be found in the page's edit history). If for any reason he or she is unresponsive, unwilling, or unable to lower protection then you may list your request on this page.
  2. Add a level 3 header (i.e. === [[Example title]] ===) with the exact title of the page you would like (un)protected. If the page is not in the article namespace, include the namespace prefix (e.g. Template:Example template or User:Example user). Place your request at the bottom of either the protection or unprotection list, depending on the nature of your request, and place the pagelinks template below the header in the form of * {{pagelinks|Example title}}. 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 (Twinkle can make sure this never happens to you!).
  3. If you are requesting protection, write 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 user talk 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 for move-protections— thus, an article can, for example, be semi-edit-protected for a week and also fully-move-protected indefinitely.
  5. Sign your request with four tildes ~~~~ and click Save page.
  • Note: editors should not consider requesting page protection as a method for continuing an argument from elsewhere nor as a venue for starting a new discussion regarding article content. If a request contains excessive argument, appears to be intended to resolve a content dispute, includes personal attacks or uncivil comments, or has any other unrelated discussion, it will be removed from this page and no action will be taken.
Examples
For single page requests
=== [[Example Article Name]] ===
* {{pagelinks|Example Article Name}}
'''Semi-protection:''' High level of IP vandalism. ~~~~
=== [[Template:Example Template Name]] ===
* {{pagelinks|Template:Example Template Name}}
'''Reduction in protection level:''' From full protection to template editor protection. ~~~~
For multiple page requests with the same criteria
=== Short descriptive header ===
* {{pagelinks|Wikipedia:Example Page Name 1}}
* {{pagelinks|Wikipedia:Example Page Name 2}}
'''Temporary semi-protection:''' High level of IP vandalism. ~~~~

List of best-selling music artists[edit]

Indefinite semi-protection Disruptive edits: The list's indefinite semi-protection was replaced by sock puppetry protection. That expired just recently.

Doraemon (2005 anime)[edit]

Temporary semi-protection

Persistent reinsertion of unsourced roles by IP's despite being constantly reverted and the page already having been page protected due to their activity. This started up again just 60minutes after the previous protection expired. Requesting month long semi as this has been going on some time and the IP is clearly not interested in sourcing their additions or addressing the concerns. It's purely disruptive and they need some time off but have a wide Ip range preventing a block request.SephyTheThird (talk) 16:06, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Declined – Not enough recent disruptive activity to justify protection. Lectonar (talk) 08:17, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Question: @Trut-h-urts man: This good enough? NeilN talk to me 17:29, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
@NeilN: The team needs to confirm the signing, after Wieters passes a physical. The official team source states that the team hasn't confirmed the deal, so it's still pending a physical. Trut-h-urts man (TC) 17:40, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Stevo Todorčević[edit]

Indefinite semi-protection: A persistent but not-logged-in editor (very likely blocked user Vujkovica brdo) keeps reverting to an unencyclopedic, puffed-up, and hagiographic version of the article. This has been going on since at least March 2016 when Vb first began editing the article. —David Eppstein (talk) 18:51, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protected for a period of 1 year, after which the page will be automatically unprotected. No viable blocks so hopefully they'll have got the idea by then if not we can review. Amortias (T)(C) 19:33, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

DeclinedPages are not protected preemptively. As I understand policy as of now, we should have at least one edit which can be described as vandalism for it to be implemented. This I do not see while browsing the history of the article. If another admin wants to protect, go right ahead though. Lectonar (talk) 08:29, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protection: There is a lot of IPv4 and IPv6 vandalism. In some of them there is also, user vandalism.

Indefinite semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Request a change in protection level from Pending Changes: autoconfirmed to a more permanent level that does not require the input of editors to reject the constant attempts to remove valid, referenced information from this article.

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Increase in vandalism due to TimesofIsrael blog article about this. Sir Joseph (talk) 14:35, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Checking to see if protection is necessary. NeilN talk to me 14:43, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
Question: @Sir Joseph: How are you not edit warring against the closed RfC and asking for your preferred version to be protected? NeilN talk to me 14:48, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
I'm trying to keep it as consensus. There was then article written about "antisemitism on Wikipedia" and these accounts are now coming to vandalize the page. Debresser and others are trying to converse with these editors but they blindly revert. (I also disagree with the closure, the closer misunderstood the question and it's clear that ALL Jews can't be labeled as Middle Eastern. Judaism is from the Middle East, but individual Jews are from wherever they are. I for example, am not from the ME, why would my page list me as ME descent then?) Sir Joseph (talk) 14:53, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
Fully protected for a period of 1 week, after which the page will be automatically unprotected. After restoring article to version specified by RFC which was upheld on review. Sir Joseph, I strongly suggest you read WP:GAME NeilN talk to me 15:01, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Jomonte Suvisheshangal[edit]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent addition of unsourced or poorly sourced content – Many IPs are adding large revenue increases without sources. Prolific on many recent Hindi-language films which are whitelocked. L3X1 My Complaint Desk 17:31, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Declined, the article is currently under pending changes and so far there is no evidence that the disruption is so intense that we should exclude IPs from editing at all.--Ymblanter (talk) 18:35, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

6.5×47mm_Lapua[edit]

United States presidential election, 2020[edit]

Indefinite semi-protection: Persistent addition of unsourced or poorly sourced content – 8 IPs/unconfirmed bad edits in the last 6 days. They never use the talk page to follow the law re: consensus, and they always make unsourced edits. I'd still rather FULL for 6 or 8 months till all this stupidity dies downs.

Indefinite semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – unexplained vandalism. Quasar G. (talk) 18:00, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Comment I would recommend 6 months, due to political climate, vandalism may die down by then. Can always reinstate if that is not the case.L3X1 My Complaint Desk 18:07, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
Already done by administrator Maile66 ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 19:33, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
Semi-protected for a period of Indefinite, after which the page will be automatically unprotected. I just did this while Oshwah was posting. This is a high profile article, and it was Pending Changes protected since 2015, which resolved nothing. Just about every IP edit for years has been reverted for vandalism.— Maile (talk) 19:37, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

OSN[edit]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Addition of unsourced or poorly sourced content. Just a day after lifting the protection the disruptive editing began again. The Banner talk 19:28, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Declined - Only one IP is making changes to the article, and the issue appears content-related or over things that can be discussed / educated with the user. Protection is not a way to get one user's attention; it's used as a result to stop disruption by multiple users and at a rate that justifies its use. ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 19:45, 22 February 2017 (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 here if you cannot find your request. Only recently answered requests are still listed here.

Charlie and the Bhoys[edit]

Unprotection: Little bit confused as to why my request was archived and then upgraded to full protection. Said offending user which was the source of the issue has be given a softblock and myself and another user are attempting to improve the article, which we cannot do so when it has full protection. I requested "Extended confirmed protection" in the first place to prevent sock puppets and said CoI user from making vandalising. Now it's pointless, even more so the current protection level. Read said users talk page, I gave them enough warnings... Uamaol (talk) 03:23, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Automated comment: A request for protection/unprotection for one or more pages in this request was recently made, and was denied at some point within the last 8 days.—cyberbot ITalk to my owner:Online 03:28, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

@Ronhjones: Lectonar (talk) 12:35, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

When there appears to be an edit war, full protection is the norm. At the time of finding the article, I had no idea who was being disruptive, there were just too many reverts - so the usual thing is to stop the editing. I'll change it to ECP. There are quite a few tickets at OTRS, it's not going to go away easily... Ronhjones  (Talk) 16:51, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
Done Downgraded to ecp. Lectonar (talk) 08:15, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Lee Corso[edit]

Indefinite semi-protection: BLP policy violations – Request indefinite extended confirmed protection, we've tried temporary many times and it's failed. MB298 (talk) 04:28, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Never mind, the matter has been dealt with. MB298 (talk) 04:29, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Current requests for edits to a protected page[edit]

Further information: Wikipedia:Edit requests

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.
  • Page move requests 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 locked. Please make requests as long as you have a specific edit you wish to make.

Handled requests[edit]
