Why is there a smugness to Mariah's page[edit]

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)

Creation protection text[edit]

The text under WP:SALT says "Contributors wishing to re-create a salted title with more appropriate content should either contact an administrator (preferably the protecting administrator), file a request at Wikipedia:Requests for page protection, or use the deletion review process". All well and good, but when I've requested unsalting (eg: Elvis' Greatest Shit), I filed a request on AN, and that's not the only time I've done it. Should we update policy to match?
