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.

    Request protection of a page, or increasing the protection level

    Request unprotection of a page, or reducing the protection level

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

    American cuisine

    Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – IP and new account editor deleting or moving content for flimsy reasons, with the new account editor putting a new section in the middle of another one. They may be the same editor. Stefen Towers among the rest! GabGruntwerk 08:30, 24 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    I logged this because I thought these edits were disruptive, but I will be fine with the judgment of the admin on this. The editor is discussing their change in Talk, but their rationale so far is flimsy. Stefen Towers among the rest! GabGruntwerk 08:40, 24 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    I'm going to leave the article alone now. The editor has made a mess of things, but I don't do edit wars. Hopefully, this can be fixed. Stefen Towers among the rest! GabGruntwerk 08:54, 24 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Consider the edit warring noticeboard – This is a case of possible edit-warring by one or two users. This is a new user, so engaging them on their talk and leaving some helpful hints could be an option (or steer them to the WP:TEAHOUSE. Fwiw, we usually do not protect pages because of one user being disruptive. This is better handled by targeting the one disruptive user directly (I think the IP will also be them). Lectonar (talk) 10:23, 24 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    It's not an edit war. I reverted two IP edits that looked purely disruptive, then this new user account comes in and insists on moving lead content and dropping it in the middle of another section, spoiling the context. I didn't let it become a war. At this point, that editor isn't providing a coherent reason for their change, and nothing I can say on their talk page will turn that around. I'm probably going to have to engage dispute resolution tools. Stefen Towers among the rest! GabGruntwerk 10:33, 24 June 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.

    Reason: The protection is not needed as the disruptive edits by unnecessarily reverting are done by an extended confirmed user. The disruptive edits(reverting) are [1] [2] [3]. These constant and complete revertings of contributions done by multiple users prevents the improvements done to the page. That particular user is alerted in the talk page of the article and hasn't yet provided evidence to his claims. Not blanket page protection but page protection from this particular user is the one needed. അദ്വൈതൻ (talk) 16:35, 22 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    That's not an argument for unprotection, given the BLP issues FrancisSobieski123 (talk · contribs) introduced right before the ECP. If anything, that's an argument to escalate it to full-protection until a discussion has actually run its course. —Jéské Couriano v^_^v threads critiques 16:39, 22 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Reverting contributions of multiple users citing an unreliability of a citation added by one user is injustice. Already the article lacks Neutral point of View(under the section Pastoral ministry and sub section love and narcotics jihad controversy ) that too on a living person, the reverting has undid my multiple contributions too, all with reliable sources that was to address this issue. That particular user's blanket reverting has done no improvement to the page. And that user who reverted my contributions hasn't yet provided evidence to his claim in the article's talk page when asked അദ്വൈതൻ (talk) 17:13, 22 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    You're still making a case for escalating the protection, not downgrading it. —Jéské Couriano v^_^v threads critiques 17:29, 22 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    I presume you are saying about full protection because the user who is blatantly reverting is an extended confirmed+ user, correct? അദ്വൈതൻ (talk) 17:32, 22 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Correct, and because this is a content dispute. —Jéské Couriano v^_^v threads critiques 17:42, 22 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    So what the solution apart from discussing in the article's talk page. As the particular user hasn't yet replied to substantiate its claims in the talk page. അദ്വൈതൻ (talk) 17:55, 22 June 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.
