Requests for page protection

This page is for requesting that a page, file or template be protected. 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 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, 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.

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.

Indefinite template protection: High-risk template – 38,000 transclusions. – Jonesey95 (talk) 20:45, 11 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Jonesey95 and Primefac: courtesy ping. El_C 21:53, 11 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
No opposition from me, but then again I don't even remember why I dropped protection to semi in the first place. Primefac (talk) 06:53, 12 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Well, your protection summary for this page (going from TP to semi) reads: misread earlier request - still highly visible/important, but not TE-important. As for ((Find sources)) (going from TP to ECP, that request was archived) reads: per request of EXCON editor. I didn't realize we use terms like ex-con for editors, shame! Face-wink.svg El_C 10:48, 12 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I know, I read the edit summary and it still rings no bells. I suspect this was early days in the taxo template system when they weren't highly-used, and there were non-EC editors potentially making changes to it. Primefac (talk) 15:38, 12 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Extended confirmed protected indefinitely. Primefac (talk) 15:39, 12 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Current requests for reduction in protection level

Request unprotection of a page, or reducing the protection level


Sock

Reason: This page has been semiprotected for over a decade, and pages on non-contentious topics ought not be super-long-term protected. Everyone who vandalised it before is now much older and (hopefully) more mature, and even if vandalism returns, the protection can just be put back. The protecting administrator was blocked in 2020. 49.198.51.54 (talk) 09:13, 12 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I believe this article was one of GRP's targets. As that specimen is still around, I'm disinclined to unprotect. Favonian (talk) 12:57, 12 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Declined I'm seeing a lot of recent vandalism from accounts that had just become autoconfirmed, so I presume unprotection would unleash the floodgates of IP vandalism. – Muboshgu (talk) 17:38, 12 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Talk:List of lighthouses in Macau

Reason: This is a talk page. There has never ever been any edit warring with this talk page nor the article (edit|talk|history|links|watch|logs). The sysop who protected the talk page was him/​herself involved in a relevant dispute. Page protection was performed without passing through any request/​nomination procedure. 43.224.235.7 (talk) 14:48, 12 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Pinging Valereee for their opinion / expertise on the alleged meatpuppetry cited in the protection log. I didn't realize until now you desysop'd. I'm curious as to why there is a Talk:List of lighthouses in Macau while List of lighthouses in Macau redirects to List of lighthouses in China. – Muboshgu (talk) 17:32, 12 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
