The requests for protection page is where users can request permanent or temporary page protection. Alternately, this page is also used to request unprotection once the dispute has been resolved.
Page protection is an administrative power that restricts editing access to certain types of users. Pages can be semi-protected, which means that anonymous and users who have had a registered Wookieepedia account for fewer than four days cannot edit the page or any of its sections. For more severe situations, pages can also be given full protection (aka "locked"), meaning that only the administrators can edit it. An example of a page that is permanently locked is the Main Page. (So don't ask for it to be unprotected.)
In addition, users can request unconditional protection and unprotection of pages in their userspace, like user pages, signature pseudo-templates and talk page archives. Talk pages themselves, however, can only be protected in case of repetitive vandalism. For a more detailed explanation of what pages can or should be protected, see Wookieepedia:Protection policy.
Please add a new request for protection/unprotection under the appropriate heading, either "Requests for protection" or "Requests for unprotection," in the following format:
#[[Article name]] Give a brief reasoning for changing the page's protection level. Sign with your signature (by typing ~~~~).
#*Subsequent details should be added under the initial report in this form.
A member of the friendly administration will then review your request and make a decision. All administrative postings on this matter are encompassed under administrative autonomy.
Always preview the page before submitting your report to avoid problems with formatting.
Listings on this page will be removed after one month and stored in the archive.
Also, one can approach an individual administrator and request for a page to be locked or protected on their talk page.
Requests for protectionEdit
- Shriv Suurgav and Sixty-First Mobile Infantry both pages have been edited with unverified information by several users as it can be seen on the edit history. All users have been warned about it, but they keep ignoring the warning. The pages were protected temporarily and the protection ended on April 5, I'm asking to semi-protect them again for a few weeks again.---DarthRuiz30 (talk) 22:00, April 9, 2018 (UTC)
- In the time since the previous protection ended on April 5, it seems there has really only been one anon who has been perpetrating this disruption, which immediately should have been brought to the attention of an administrator. Blocking is more effective than protecting pages and doesn't penalize innocent users from having editing access to a given page. I have now blocked that anon rather than reinstating protection here, so we'll see how it goes. In the future, please bring instances of edit warring, vandalism, unverified information, and the like to an administrator's talk page, IRC, and/or Vandalism in progress.
