Wikipedia:Requests for page protection
|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.

Current requests for increase in protection level
Request protection of a page, or increasing the protection level
- Declined – Not enough recent disruptive activity to justify protection. Bbb23 (talk) 15:36, 9 August 2022 (UTC)
Reason: Requires time to refer to non-digital sources and manually add citations in some cases. Trying to protect the page temporarily from edit warring, until it is established that the page has reliable sources and is robust enough to stay up. Comments and notes would be appreciated by editors from the majority world. Kill joyarchivist (talk) 15:39, 9 August 2022 (UTC)
- No one is edit warring except you and further, the place to get your sourcing together is before you unilaterally move a poorly sourced BLP to mainspace. PRAXIDICAE🌈 15:42, 9 August 2022 (UTC)
