Wikipedia:Requests for page protection

Page semi-protected
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Welcome—request protection of a page, file, or template here.

    Before requesting, read 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 to prevent IP and new user vandalism (see the rough guide to semi-protection); and move protection is used to stop pagemove revert wars. Extended confirmed protection is used where semi-protection has proved insufficient (see the rough guide to extended confirmed protection)

    After a page has been protected, it is listed in the page history and logs with a short rationale, and the article is listed on Special:Protectedpages. In the case of full protection due to edit warring, admins should not revert to specific versions of the page, except to get rid of obvious vandalism.

    Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Lady keeps making edits that she is the Princess of Winsted and never provides reliable sources to back up her uncredible claims. Already blocked under Username123460011 but she came back under an IP to do more of the same. Thebirdlover (talk) 01:21, 17 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Indefinite extended confirmed protection: Pretty decent new article, but could benefit from ECP like 2014 Isla Vista killings. I'm aware we don't protect pages preemptively, but perhaps IAR?. LilianaUwU (talk / contributions) 01:34, 17 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    DeclinedPages are not protected preemptively. Let's show good faith and give the community its chance. Daniel Case (talk) 02:26, 17 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Current requests for reduction in protection level

    Request unprotection of a page, or reducing the protection level

    Before posting, first discuss with the protecting admin at their talk page. Post below only if you receive no reply.

    • 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 archives if you cannot find your request. Only recently answered requests are still listed here.

    Unprotection: Has been indefinitely semi-protected since 2013, but didn't seem to get a ton of vandalism before this point. Likely worth trying unprotection. The protecting admin has not edited in 2 years. --Ferien (talk) 21:33, 16 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    • I just randomly checked a few different years and found they are all semi-protected. To be honest, I'm not inclined to reduce protection because there isn't a huge demand for editing these articles by the largest number of people. This means they aren't watched by a huge number of people, and the possibility of vandalism going unnoticed is much higher, so the risk of unprotecting is greater than the possible gains by allowing IPs and new editors to edit. Semi-protect is such a low bar, I can't see how this is damaging the article, but I do see how this stops hit and run vandalism that might go unnoticed for extended periods of time. Will leave open for another opinion. Dennis Brown - 04:53, 17 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Current requests for edits to a protected page

    Request a specific edit to a protected page
    Please request an edit directly on the protected page's talk page before posting here

    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 {{Edit COI}} 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.
