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.

Reason: User:Inuyashaki repeatedly adding unsourced personal information to the page (request for a short semi-protection). Prosperosity (talk) 04:41, 26 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Comment There's a reliable source available for the assertion here. OhNoitsJamie Talk 22:13, 26 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – BLP violations from IPs again. Joseph2302 (talk) 10:47, 26 October 2021 (UTC)[]

  • This seems to have calmed down for now, so probably not needed anymore. Joseph2302 (talk) 15:51, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Indefinite semi-protection: Persistent disruptive editing – Disruptive additions without consensus, controversial article. Vacant0 (talk) 21:43, 26 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Semi-protected for a period of 2 weeks, after which the page will be automatically unprotected. Wug·a·po·des 21:57, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]
  • Automated comment: One or more pages in this request appear to already be protected. Please confirm.—cyberbot ITalk to my owner:Online 22:08, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Rajiv Gandhi International Airport

Temporary full protection: Content Dispute/Edit Warring. Despite my message on the edit page, there has been a great deal of edit warring/content dispute an EC user and an IP editor. Consider applying a temporary full protection — DaxServer (talk) 07:41, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Declined It doesn't strike me as an edit war. The editors seem to be attaining consensus through editing, and it seems productive if unusual. Wug·a·po·des 22:03, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Indi Hartwell

Temporary semi-protection: BLP policy violations – PC protection is not enough for this article; e.g. recent disruptive edits and BLP violation.[1][2][3]. Mann Mann (talk) 10:52, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Declined – No changes to the current protection level are required at this point in time. PC is working as intended. Wug·a·po·des 22:05, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Racism in Mexico

Indefinite semi-protection: Persistent addition of unsourced or poorly sourced content – This page suffers from regular editions of original research, vandalism, and unsupported opinions, without regular oversight from more senior editors. Would benefit from protection. Hesperian Nguyen (talk) 14:22, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Pending-changes protected indefinitely. Wug·a·po·des 22:11, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – IP starts edit war. Sincerely, AdigabrekTalk Circassia 15:05, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab

Indefinite extended confirmed protection: Persistent Disruptive edits by random IPs causing complications in editing and improving the article. shadowwarrior8 (talk) 16:43, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Quranism

Temporary protection: Persistent vandalism. Serols (talk) 17:35, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Declined Recent removals do not appear to be vandalism. Nosebagbear (talk) 18:35, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]
@Nosebagbear: This article is a target of vandalism as it includes content about a "distinct" group of Muslims, which other Muslims may not be pleasant with. These removals, and such edits should be at least discussed before removal. An edit war has been started by this IP and it will continue unless the page is protected. Sincerely, AdigabrekTalk Circassia 18:51, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]
@Adigabrek:, while I was eminently aware that it would make a logical target for vandalism, I couldn't immediately identify such in the recent history (that would have led to an RFPP now). The returning of that content was done under a statement that it was unexplained, but the IP editor who removed them did do so - they were uncited, on an inherently controversial topic. As of when I assessed this request it clearly wasn't the vandalism underpinning the request, and the edit war wasn't at a level to warrant protection. As we now do have an edit war, with the follow-up edits, I will apply a 48 hour edit war protection. In theory, that could be argued that it should be full protect, to prevent multiple parties edit warring, since there isn't an in-place consensus etc. You should start the discussion yourself on the talk page and ping the most recent IP address to it.

Anupam Tripathi

Temporary extended confirmed protection: Persistent disruptive editing. Btspurplegalaxy (talk) 17:41, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Declined Why is the addition of a photo of the subject considered disruptive? There's no explanation given. A previous photo was speedy deleted on commons, but this one appears to have proper licensing. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 21:09, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Battle of Firaz

Semi-protection: Persistent disruptive editing. HistoryofIran (talk) 19:32, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Declined Other editor warned for personal attacks, but may have reason for the edit. If this continues page protection will be warranted. 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 20:54, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Dalas Review

Reason: Recurring vandalism. Germanico5468504 (talk) 20:03, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Declined – Not enough recent disruptive activity to justify protection. Last edited on October 24. clpo13(talk) 21:09, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Joseph Ladapo

Reason: Again, persistent disruption from IP and unregistered users in response to recent news coverage. KidAdSPEAK 21:55, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

  • Automated comment: A request for protection/unprotection for one or more pages in this request was recently made, and was denied at some point within the last 8 days.—cyberbot ITalk to my owner:Online 22:08, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]

Request unprotection of a page, or reducing the protection level

Patrice Wilson

Reason: Indefinite BLP issues from 10 years ago, unlikely that the disruptive editing will continue as editing slowed down ever since. SuperSkaterDude45 (talk) 18:24, 27 October 2021 (UTC)[]
