Enabling full protection on semi-protected articles[edit]

Whenever full protection is used and then expires, the article is no longer semi-protected. Instead, it is unprotected and prone to attacks. Re-enabling semi-protection requires a request, which is bothersome. How do we resolve this issue? --George Ho (talk) 01:00, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

@George Ho: This has come up before, see Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)/Archive 136#Page protection - reverting to previous protection when a higher form expires and phab:T41038. --Redrose64 (talk) 08:23, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Superprotect question[edit]

According to Wikipedia:Superprotect#Superprotect, "It is currently not used on the English Wikipedia." How is this known? that is, is there a log of Superprotect usage? - User:Amgine/t · e 20:56, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

@Amgine: Yes, here. What that doesn't show is if any pages were superprotected once but no longer. --Redrose64 (talk) 22:26, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
