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.

    Indefinite create protection: Repeatedly recreated – The article was created by an undisclosed paid editor and was draftified but it was recently moved to the main namespace by a spa after gaining the autoconfirmed status. Since it include paid edits and was created in a violation of WP:PAID this must go through the AfC process. GSS💬 04:49, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Note: Technically it has only been recreated once, if at all, as I can find no deletions....it's more a moving back and forth from main to draftspace. PAID also doesn't forbid users to create pages or modify them, they just need to declare themselves. Lectonar (talk) 06:37, 14 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    2026 Cricket World Cup Qualifier

    Indefinite extended confirmed protection: Persistent disruptive editing – Page is being created over and over again, irrespective of Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/2026 Cricket World Cup Qualifier. Vestrian24Bio (TALK) 04:46, 15 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Template:2024 ICC Men's T20 World Cup Groups

    Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – IPs are vandalising as the Group stage is coming to an end soon. Vestrian24Bio (TALK) 06:47, 15 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Template:Indian Premier League

    Indefinite semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – IPs repeat the same every time protection expires; indefinite protection needed. Vestrian24Bio (TALK) 07:03, 15 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.

    Golden Retriever

    Reason: Protected since 2011. Unlikely target for repeated vandalism. I do not believe protection is warranted given the similar Labrador Retriever lacks protection and only gets proper vandalism about once a month. Traumnovelle (talk) 23:53, 14 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.


    Israel–Hamas war

    At present we have "On 24 May, the International Court of Justice ruled that Israel must immediately halt its Rafah offensive.[1]"

    I suggest changing it to include a longer, semantically-complete, quotation, to read: "On 24 May, the International Court of Justice ruled that Israel must immediately halt its military offensive, and any other action in the Rafah governorate, which may inflict on the Palestinian group in Gaza conditions of life that could bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part.[2]"

    As the Guardian article points out, and reports judges as arguing, the last comma is critical to the meaning of the ruling. Hunc (talk) 10:49, 12 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Actually changed to a version which does not give the same meaning as the full text. I hope that you can change:

    On 24 May, the International Court of Justice ruled that Israel's military offensive and anything "which may inflict on the Palestinian group in Gaza conditions of life that could bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part" must be halted."

    to

    On 24 May, the International Court of Justice ruled that "Israel must immediately halt its military offensive, and any other action in the Rafah Governorate, which may inflict on the Palestinian group in Gaza conditions of life that could bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part."

    The precise grammar, in particular the last comma, is critical to the meaning.
