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 administrator 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 3 header (i.e. === [[Example title]] ===) with the namespace if not an article. 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.
  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 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 nor starting a new discussion regarding content. 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.
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}}
'''Unprotection:''' 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. ~~~~

Template-protected pages [Edit=Allow only template editors and admins][edit]

Full protection (same time periods): Template protection probably accidental, as it is only appropriate for high-risk templates, modules, and other highly-transcluded pages per WP:TPROT. Evad37 [talk] 02:23, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Agreed, but let's ping Harry and CorbieVreccan first MusikAnimal talk 18:16, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
I put List of Power Rangers Dino Supercharge episodes at template protection because it's been plagued with socks, and it's the only thing we have between ten edits/four days (which the sockmaster is gaming with trivial effort) and admins only, but there's no reason somebody trustworthy couldn't edit it if they needed to. You can full protect it if you want, but that would seem to me to be bureaucracy for its own sake. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 18:57, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
Full protection is fine with me. My rationale at the time was the same as for HJ - choosing something between semi and full, for the same reasons. - CorbieV 19:26, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Template-protected pages [Move=Allow only template editors and admins][edit]

Full Move protection (same time periods): Template protection probably accidental, as it is only appropriate for high-risk templates, modules, and other highly-transcluded pages per WP:TPROT. Evad37 [talk] 02:23, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Temporary semi-protection: BLP policy violations – Over the past month, a few newer users have been adding a tidal wave of poorly sourced and unsourced content. When they bother to source it, it's often sourced to obviously unreliable sites, like social media and Wordpress blogs. Semiprotection won't stop it all, but it'll make it easier to manage.

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 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 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.

Current requests for edits to a protected page[edit]

Further information: Wikipedia:Edit requests
Shortcut:
Ideally, requests should be made on the article talk page rather than here.

Donald Trump[edit]

Edit semi-protected: The header states that he "earned...support among working-class voters, as well as widespread opposition from Hispanics/Latinos, Muslims, business leaders, and other Republicans," but does not cite a source. This is not the language used later on in the article where it says "...earned him support among working-class voters and voters without college educations amid heavy and frequent controversies in the news media." I think it's unfair to paint him in this way without at least citing a source because potential voters of those groups may read the header and get an impression of him without actually looking into his positions for themselves. My request or suggestion is to change the language in the header to what is said later in the article (which is cited), or cite a source for the original claims. WikiUser2244 (talk) 01:02, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Not done No specific edit proposed. The article talk page is the appropriate venue for discussion of content. Katietalk 03:25, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

My specific edit was to change the last line of the header to what it is says later in the article. I said "My request or suggestion is to change the language in the header to what is said later in the article (which is cited), or cite a source for the original claims." If you can't find a source or if that's not how this process works then my "proposal" is to just change the wording to match. Also, the talk page is also semi-protected, otherwise I wouldn't have posted here. WikiUser2244 (talk) 04:06, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

You'd be right, that isn't how the process works. You need to bring what specific changes you want to have made, admins are only proxies for these small edits after all so they can't do anything that requires more than a copypaste or that forwards a specific POV. If you have a different wording for the unsourced sentence in the lede then that probably could be done seeing as it's an unsourced statement, just need to say where it is and what it should read as with cites if you have them. tutterMouse (talk) 06:17, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

Okay, so I'd like to change the last sentence of the header to read "Trump's politically incorrect, anti-illegal immigration politics, which also concentrated on terrorism and national security concerns, earned him support among working-class voters and voters without college educations amid heavy and frequent controversies in the news media," for the reasons stated originally. The source that cites this is source 200. WikiUser2244 (talk) 14:50, 5 February 2016 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.128.73.5 (talk)
