Requests for page protection

This page is for requesting that a page, file or template be fully protected, create protected (salted), extended confirmed protected, semi-protected, added to pending changes, move-protected, template protected, 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 page-move 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, 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 to have a page protected, have a page's existing protection level lowered or raised, or would like to submit an edit request for a protected page, please follow these steps (note: if you enable the Twinkle gadget for your Wikiafripedia account, this process can be largely automated for you):

  1. If you are requesting unprotection, the correct protocol is to ask the protecting administrator first for unprotection (the admin's user account name can be found in the page's edit history). If for any reason he or she is unresponsive, unwilling, or unable to lower protection then you may list your request on this page.
  2. Add a level 3 header (i.e. === [[Example title]] ===) with the exact title of the page you would like (un)protected. If the page is not in the article namespace, include the namespace prefix (e.g. Template:Example template or User:Example user). Place your request at the bottom of either the protection or unprotection list, depending on the nature of your request. 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 (Twinkle can make sure this never happens to you!)
  3. Place the pagelinks template below the header, in the form of * {{pagelinks|Example title}} (note the asterisk).
  4. 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.
  5. 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 for move-protections— thus, an article can, for example, be semi-edit-protected for a week and also fully-move-protected indefinitely.
  6. Sign your request with four tildes ~~~~ and click Publish changes.
  • Note: editors should not consider requesting page protection as a method for continuing an argument from elsewhere nor as a venue for starting a new discussion regarding article content. If a request contains excessive argument, appears to be intended to resolve a content dispute, includes personal attacks or uncivil comments, or has any other unrelated discussion, it will be removed from this page and no action will be taken.
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}}
'''Reduction in protection level:''' From full protection to template editor protection. ~~~~
For multiple page requests with the same criteria
=== Short descriptive header ===
* {{pagelinks|Wikiafripedia:Example Page Name 1}}
* {{pagelinks|Wikiafripedia:Example Page Name 2}}
'''Temporary semi-protection:''' High level of IP vandalism. ~~~~

Barisan Nasional[edit source | edit]

Za'atar[edit source | edit]

Extended confirmed protection: Arbitration enforcement – Persistent violations of WP:A/I/PIA, with few other constructive contributions by non-extended-confirmed users. The page has an edit notice saying that IPs and users with less than 500 edits may not edit it. So we may as well prevent them from doing so... IamNotU (talk) 22:48, 26 September 2020 (UTC)

  • Comment and please requesting move protection for this article due to page moving suspectible to vandalism. 36.68.187.70 (talk) 22:58, 26 September 2020 (UTC)

Arab cuisine[edit source | edit]

Indefinite Extended confirmed protection: Arbitration enforcement – Persistent violations of WP:A/I/PIA as this article includes in Arab-Israeli topics. 36.68.187.70 (talk) 23:00, 26 September 2020 (UTC)

Vikas Bhalla[edit source | edit]

Indefinite semi-protection: High level of IP vandalism. Vandalised television appearances in Indian actor's article and vandalised cast addition of actors in Indian television series articles whom never entered the series and also sometimes few other vandalised edits. Despite, I reverted few days ago, it is keeping on added. Not only this IP, i found different IPs retrieve it again after revertion through edit history of the article. While I try tracking the IPs, the vandalised articles keep on increasing under different IPs with same disruption. Regarding which some vandalised IP contributions which i found were :[1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], [10]. As traced from those article's history before and after revertions many more similar vandalisms by different IPs has happened related to cast and actor's television appearances.

Firstly I reported this at Administrator intervention against vandalism, [11] where i was asked to request page protection here instead of blocking each IP. Noobie anonymous (talk) 12:09, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

Declined – Not enough recent disruptive activity to justify protection. Sorry, but the most recent edit to the article was September 9. Before that there were widely spread out problem edits which can be dealt with through normal page watching.  MelanieN (talk) 01:03, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

Taxonomy (biology)[edit source | edit]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism. CLCStudent (talk) 12:59, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

Declined – No changes to the current protection level are required at this point in time. The indefinite PC protection seems to be doing the job. MelanieN (talk) 01:05, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

Good Country Index and World Happiness Report[edit source | edit]

Indefinite semi-protection: Constant high level of mostly nationalistic vandalism from different IPs. Good Country Index got protected for 3 months in March, but right after the protection ended, vandalism began again. 85.76.16.175 (talk) 13:10, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

Pending-changes protected for a period of 1 year, after which the page will be automatically unprotected. Applies to both. MelanieN (talk) 01:23, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

Joy Ride film series genre vandalism[edit source | edit]

Temporary semi-protection: High level of IP vandalism. User hopping around to do genre vandalism changing sourced material. Andrzejbanas (talk) 16:09, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

List of deaths due to COVID-19[edit source | edit]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Vandalism returned shortly after unprotection. Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 16:56, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

  • Non-admin comment Because this article was subjected to vandalism by multiple IP users with adding unsourced information and under general sanctions, i think this article would more likely to indefinite semi-protection. 36.68.187.70 (talk) 20:26, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

Tate Martell[edit source | edit]

Semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – vandalism. Joeykai (talk) 17:50, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

2020 Nagorno-Karabakh conflict[edit source | edit]

Move protection: The subject of this article is controversial and prone to move vandalism by any users. Therefore, it should be moved via move request only. 36.68.187.70 (talk) 21:06, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

  • Automated comment: One or more pages in this request appear to already be protected. Please confirm.—cyberbot ITalk to my owner:Online 21:18, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

Bereza Kartuska Prison[edit source | edit]

Move protection: This article is heavily subjected to move vandalism by any users. El C already impose ECP edit and move for the article per Arbitration enforcement but for me it is insufficient because any users can move the page without consensus. For me, the move request shall be conducted via move request only in any controversial pages like this. 36.68.187.70 (talk) 21:18, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

  • Automated comment: One or more pages in this request appear to already be protected. Please confirm.—cyberbot ITalk to my owner:Online 21:33, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

Semi-protection: Multiple IP accounts have been removing sourced genres from the article's infobox for the last few days. Aria1561 (talk) 21:29, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

Like Nastya[edit source | edit]

Semi-protection: [12], [13], [14], [15] add fake info about her death, violate BLP. Wikisaurus (talk) 22:05, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

List of people killed for being transgender[edit source | edit]

Semi-protection: Several fresh vandalism edits by IP and newly registered accounts inserting tendentious and unsupported by sources cited anti-LGBT rhetoric into the article. Indicates liklely sockpuppetry, possibly by the just blocked User:Zezen (who was active at the talk page of the article in question just a few days earlier), see Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard#User:Zezen. Semi-protection of the article for a few weeks would seem prudent. Nsk92 (talk) 22:12, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

Not done - Problem user being already being blocked should solve the problem. Fuzheado | Talk 02:03, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

Cyrus the Great[edit source | edit]

Indefinite semi-protection: This page is one of the major targets for anti-Persian sentiment vandalizing and persistently keeps facing such attacks by changing the titles to hateful and disturbing sentiments beside changes or removals of texts' parts without any source or justification by unregistered/new users. In hope of putting a stop to most of such disruptions I request Indefinite semi-protection for the page. Regards. Donovan.Se (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 19:00, 27 September 2020‎ (UTC)

Declined – Not enough recent disruptive activity to justify protection. Reverted edits are not frequent, and most of the ones that are reverted are from autoconfirmed editors so semiprotection wouldn't help. MelanieN (talk) 00:02, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

List of current world boxing champions[edit source | edit]

Semi-protection: Repeated vandalism by IPs. 2.O.Boxing 00:34, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

Theresa Greenfield[edit source | edit]

Remove full protection: Vastly improved draft at Draft:Theresa Greenfield is ready for mainspace. Protecting admin. declined request, with minimal explanation, at User_talk:Muboshgu#Unprotection_request. Protecting admin. appears to be WP:INVOLVED, having nominated previous version of article for deletion, at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Theresa Greenfield. UnitedStatesian (talk) 17:03, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

  • Automated comment: One or more pages in this request appear to already be protected. Please confirm.—cyberbot ITalk to my owner:Online 17:16, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Non-admin comment To add more context, I also asked for unprotection at Talk:Theresa Greenfield#Notable (on September 22) and Draft talk:Theresa_Greenfield#Greenfield draft status, and we have also received only minimal responses there. Dreamyshade (talk) 21:01, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Non-admin comment To add more context, there is a draft article for Theresa Greenfield, the Democratic US Senate nominee in Iowa, a closely contested race that could determine control of the US Senate. Of 69 US Senate major party nominees this cycle, 61 have articles, and Theresa Greenfield should too, as she clearly meets general notability guidelines.
