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. Only post below if you receive no (favourable) 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.

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.

Requests for autopatrolled


User:GMH Melbourne

I have created around 50 pages thus far, haven't had any issues with them being reviewed except for a few early on when I was still getting the grasp of things. I'm an NPR and understand which pages that qualify for deletion and which are fine for wikipedia. I intend to make a lot of new pages regarding Australian Government Ministries over the next few months and thought I'd get this permission to ease the backlog of unreviewed pages. ––– GMH MELBOURNE TALK 00:15, 29 September 2023 (UTC)

 Done, thank you for your contributions so far. – Joe (talk) 13:35, 2 October 2023 (UTC)

  • Sandstein is an admin - he can grant himself autopatrolled if he wants. If he hasn't done so this far, I assume that he either has a reason for it, or simply wasn't aware that it was unbundled from the admin toolkit. I've pinged him, so he should be aware now. Closing as  Not done procedurally although I have no objection to him self-granting the right. Spicy (talk) 23:32, 29 September 2023 (UTC)

I have created a number of articles and I will continue creating more articles. I'm aware that having this right does not give any special tool to ease page creation process but will help in reducing the tedious work of new page reviewers. Booberring (talk) 10:30, 30 September 2023 (UTC)

Reason for requesting autopatrolled rights

I have created over 50 new pages, and have updated content in many more. My primary interest over the past year has been motorsports, particularly hall of fame level race drivers from the northeastern U.S. My goal is to create stubs that comply with Wikipedia notability standards, so that other users familiar with motorsports have a starting point. As such, my work tends to be non-controversial and succinct, with little need to burden NPP. Kyle4344 (talk) 15:17, 2 October 2023 (UTC)
Requests for AutoWikiBrowser access



I have been working with categories more, and would like to see how the AWB could be helpful. Happyecheveria (talk) 22:10, 13 September 2023 (UTC)

I'll leave this for another admin, but am inclined to decline - given User talk:Happyecheveria#Category edits I think it's probably not prudent to grant you access to automated tools that would speed up your editing at this time. * Pppery * it has begun... 16:18, 17 September 2023 (UTC)


I have noticed that the eponymous article for university categories is often either missing (eg several in Category:Wikipedia categories named after universities and colleges in China have no articles at the top level) or incorrectly sorted (eg in Category:University of La Laguna) and wish to use AWB with a suitable module to correct this easily. Perspicax (talk) 22:44, 19 September 2023 (UTC)

Leaving for a second opinion, but given that you've only recently had a talk page complaint about insufficient care in using automated tools I'm not convinced it's prudent to grant you access to additional automated tools at this time. * Pppery * it has begun... 03:48, 28 September 2023 (UTC)


Among other aspects, I find myself editing a lot of template-heavy articles and I think AWB would really improve my speed and consistency with such, e.g. foreign language-heavy articles, computing articles, math articles. Remsense (talk) 18:56, 21 September 2023 (UTC)

Could you explain what exactly you want to do with AWB? AWB is for editing multiple articles in quick succession, not really for editing template-heavy articles. I took a quick look through your contributions and don't see any mass changes of that sort. * Pppery * it has begun... 03:48, 28 September 2023 (UTC)
For example, I semi-manually wrangle a lot of Chinese-language text, and it would be nice for me to format it properly across multiple related articles I'm working on, rather than slowly moving from one to other. For example, I often find myself looking at a group like Chinese characters, CJK ideographs and, say, Qiao Shi. Using regex, it would be a lot more efficient to clean up the same regular discrepancies with language templates and formatting across several articles at once so I can more quickly go on to actually augmenting the respective articles' content rather than iterating through similar regexes single pages at a time, reshuffling what's already there. I hope that makes sense? Remsense (talk) 04:34, 28 September 2023 (UTC)
Works for me.  Done * Pppery * it has begun... 03:00, 30 September 2023 (UTC)


I would like to edit pages like 1904, where instead of it saying "b. 1854" or something like that, it says "born 1854". It sticks out like a sore thumb, and I really do not want to manually edit every single instance of this. It would also be useful in other areas involving similar repetitive edits.

  •  Not done – Hi, and thank you for creating an account to edit Wikipedia. Although I fully understand your desire to dive right in, many of our articles are semi-protected because they are controversial, prone to vandalism, or other reasons. As a new editor with few edits, it might be wise to discuss your edits on the article talkpage in order to gain consensus for your edits, and then use {{Edit semi-protected}} to request the edit be performed. I only recommend this until you are used to the challenges of reliable sources, the biographies of living persons policy, and other similar policies. The good news is that fewer than 5 percent of Wikipedia articles are protected; this means that more than 95 percent of the articles can use your help right now!

 Not done. There seem to have been issues with some of your recent(ish) mainspace creations which suggest that you're not quite up to speed with all the relevant policies and expectations for new articles. I would suggest building some more experience at AfC and AfD and writing some nice clean articles on notable subjects if that's something you're interested in, then reapplying in a couple of months or so.

I've recently started participating again at AfC and AfD again in the past few months and I figured I can handle the more demanding workload. By my own estimate, in a month I probably won't review much more than a dozen, perhaps a score, but I thought I'd throw my hat in anyway. Alpha3031 (tc) 13:12, 28 September 2023 (UTC)

 Done, thank you for volunteering and do as much or as little as you like – it all helps. – Joe (talk) 13:51, 2 October 2023 (UTC)


With the increasing backlog (although drive is coming), some help probably wouldn't hurt. I've been working at counter-vandalism, help venues, dispute resolution, speedy deletion (some of those) and a bit at AFD and removing copyvios, and currently writing a few articles. I've went through all the instructions for the Curation Tool, the new page feed, the acceptance criteria and other guidance. I've understood everything, though if I'm unsure, I'll rather ask for help or leave it in the queue rather than review it myself. NotAGenious (talk) 11:57, 29 September 2023 (UTC)

 Not done. As far as I can see, you've only written one article and haven't participated in any AfDs. A lot of your contributions have been removing content from articles with the summary "spam clean up", which isn't accurate much of the time; for example, here, you removed a section that was clearly not spam - instead of removing it, you could've converted the external links into references. Also, this isn't the kind of attitude I look for in a reviewer. — Ingenuity (talk • contribs) 13:19, 30 September 2023 (UTC)

I'm asking for another trial or formal permission of page mover as my current trial will expire in the next week. I'm active in the whole trial period. I mainly use round-robin page moves to swap malplaced disambiguation pages.

I went through the WP:Page_mover#Guidelines_for_granting and saw that I am not qualified yet per criterion #1 and #2 but I took the courage to make this request after reading the last line which says An administrator may grant page mover rights to users they otherwise deem competent and may deny the requests if they do not see a need for the tools or have other concerns.

I have a log of draftification and I keep draftifying articles and leaving a redirect that is marked for deletion. I would love to help reduce that backlog by simply having the pagemover right. Thanks so much! Vanderwaalforces (talk) 11:10, 25 September 2023 (UTC)

Hello, for the past six months I've been active in the Wikipedia community, adding content, but especially fighting vandalism. That is what brings me here, as I am sure that with rollback I'd be able to prevent vandalism more effectively! I've been using Twinkle to remove vandalism as well, and would like to get access to AntiVandal and Huggle with those rights to fight vandalism even more. Thanks for the consideration, Cocobb8 (💬 talk • ✏️ contribs) 15:37, 28 September 2023 (UTC)


I have been patrolling recent changes for some time now, and I would like to gain access to rollback so I can use tools like Huggle and AntiVandal to revert vandalism. FatCat96 (talk) 15:08, 29 September 2023 (UTC)

 Not done. Please see the notice at the top of this page. I don't think you have sufficient editing experience yet. Take a moment to check out what counter-vandalism is at WP:CVU, and if you decide you'd like to get involved, you can enroll at the Counter Vandalism Academy to learn more.

I recently started to use Huggle at read-only mode to search for vandalism and using RedWarn to revert it, I've also encountered and reverted vandalism while reviewing pending changes. RotciW 22:58, 1 October 2023 (UTC)

 Done seems reasonable after looking at your contribs. Please make good choices while using huggle --Guerillero Parlez Moi 17:28, 2 October 2023 (UTC)


I'm requesting rollbacker rights to fight off vandalism and other unconstructive edits, I've used Lupin's anti vandal tool in past two years, so i would like to have rollback rights to revert vandalism more efficiently. Also most of my automated edits have been reverts.[6]Ratnahastin (talk) 02:48, 2 October 2023 (UTC)


I have been active in new pages patrol and AFD before extending my contribution to Recent Changes to help counter vandalism. I have mostly used Twinkle tools but I understand that having rollback right will allow me to use other tools such as huggle and AntiVanda in spotting vandalism.

I'm using SWViewer to revert vandalism and want to use rollback to revert vandalism more efficiently. I already have rollback rights in the German Wikipedia. NoNAja (talk) 16:34, 2 October 2023 (UTC)

As of this day, I feel like I have now had sufficient editing experience. Most edits that I reverted have either been done through vandalism or in bad faith. Using Twinkle works well, but sometimes the rollback or vandalism revert buttons can become slow and useless. However, if I get this permission, reverting vandalism will become much easier. I will not misuse it while checking the edits. I will only use it to revert vandalism or bad-faith edits. If I don't get the permission, then that is okay. I will wait for another few months. Thank you. NoobThreePointOh (talk) 17:58, 2 October 2023 (UTC)
Requests for template editor

Template editor


Hello! A while ago, I got a 3-month trial of TPE here with the primary intention of WikiGnoming template-protected modules — making small simplifications to modules to make them more efficient and/or easier to read. My trial expired a while back while I was away, and my interest in editing Wikipedia waned at around the same time, so I didn't re-request it. My interest has partially returned, though, so I would now like to request permanent TPE. I'm confident in my ability to avoid causing any ruckus; I didn't get into any conflict during my trial, and I made sure to test changes and ensure they wouldn't be controversial.

(Note: I'm relatively certain this'll be asked about, so: my Gnomehub I created during my trial does include a few regex searches for things that might be controversial to simplify (although maybe I'm just wildly overestimating the elevation of the "controversial" bar), but those don't serve as statements that simplifying those would never be controversial; those searches might never be used to make such edits, and just lay dormant as an indication of "this pattern of code might not be perfect in an objective sense" to be used if I think simplifying it would be appropriate and non-controversial. Sorry if I'm not making any sense here.) {{Lemondoge|Talk|Contributions}} 19:33, 29 September 2023 (UTC)
