    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 {{request edit}} 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



    Reason for requesting autopatrolled rights I am requesting autopatrolled rights because I have been an editor on Wikipedia for 16 years and have created 33 articles. I just had a first-year Wikipedian with autopatrol rights move an article to draft space because he did not understand how Supreme Court Cases articles are written. I think I have shown that my articles to Wikipedia are for the benefit of all. Thus I think that my articles, when created, should not add to the backlog as showing me as a trusted user.

    Thank you for your time on this request. Jsgoodrich (talk) 05:49, 27 March 2023 (UTC)

    @Jsgoodrich: Thank you for your long history of contributions to the project. As someone who's also been around a while, I can say that one of the biggest things that's changed since the early days is sourcing expectations. Jamiebuba moved the article you're talking about to draft because it didn't have any inline citations, and I think the vast majority of editors nowadays would agree that that is a major problem. I see you've now added citations, so I've moved it back to mainspace; please note that you were also free to move it back to mainspace yourself at any time. Otherwise,  Not done because your rate of article creation does not require autopatrolled. – Joe (talk) 06:40, 28 March 2023 (UTC)
    Supreme Court Cases on the project are not needed of in line citations, there are thousands of articles without a single inline cite. While I want to improve them, that is why as I get time I am adding articles. However as an attorney and teacher I don't get a ton of time to do this. This is the stuff that causes me long breaks in wiki, experts are treated badly by editors that can't respect the work that experts do. The number of attorneys writing wiki articles are small. Yet an attorney who took the time to read three opinion and wrote a supreme court case that is in the news was moved out of wiki main space to draft by one user with less than one year of editing. I again request autopatrolled be granted. Jsgoodrich (talk) 13:17, 28 March 2023 (UTC)
    Autopatrolled isn't a reward and it doesn't make your editing any easier. Yes, not having it does trigger a review by other editors. The usual bar is having 25 clean articles and the expectation is that it's needed, i.e. an editor produces new articles with some regularity. When I look at your last 25 articles, this takes me back to 2010; that's the exact opposite of "regular".
    However, if you encounter reviewers who don't know what they are doing, please do not hesitate to contact either Joe or me directly and we'll look into it for you. Schwede66 01:32, 30 March 2023 (UTC)


    Although I have less than 25 articles created, I think writing a GA shows enough understanding about articles that I can be trusted with the right and therefore reduce the NPP backlog. — Ixtal ( T / C ) Non nobis solum. 12:35, 28 March 2023 (UTC)

By the way, you don't need to go through the AfC process; if you start articles in draft space and feel that they are ready, you can move them yourself; this does not require to be autopatrolled.

    Requests for event coordinator

    Event coordinator


    Last year we had problems with a blocked IP range at the beginning of an editathon here in Switzerland. Now we plan a similar event and I hope to prevent such problems when I get the right as Event coordinator. The planed event is supported by Wikimedia Switzerland: link. I often organize editathons for the German WP and sometimes in other languages as English. - Hadi (talk) 18:54, 24 March 2023 (UTC)

    @Hadi, event coordinator will not allow you to bypass an account creation block on an IP address. My advice would be to use the Program and Events dashboard to create the accounts instead, which will allow you to bypass the block. stwalkerster (talk) 01:48, 25 March 2023 (UTC)
    Thank you @Stwalkerster for your answer. I found an other possibilty by Requesting a temporary lift of IP cap Hadi (talk) 17:47, 26 March 2023 (UTC)
    Yeah, that's a way of bypassing the 6 accounts per IP per day (much like the Program and Events dashboard), but again that doesn't let you bypass an account creation block. If we know the IP address ahead of time, we can look to whether it's possible to enable account creations via that IP range, but it's probably easier just to use the dashboard for this. stwalkerster (talk) 18:01, 26 March 2023 (UTC)
    Thanks again @Stwalkerster. Last year we didn't have the problem of creating accounts (we told the newcomers to create these before to come to the event), but many of us were not able to edit. Would this problem really avoided with the Program and Events dashboard? Hadi (talk) 17:18, 28 March 2023 (UTC)
    The P+E dashboard will only let you bypass the account creation problems. If you were unable to edit while logged in, then it's likely the block itself would need to be changed. Without knowing what the block or IP address is, I can't say if that's a reasonable option or not. stwalkerster (talk) 18:39, 28 March 2023 (UTC)


    I am running a multi-day edit-a-thon through the Outreach Dashboard. For some reason, we ran into the IP account creation cap issue. I checked to make sure that participants were using the dashboard prompt to create accounts, and I was not manually flagging attendees as confirmed. Tomorrow is the second day of the edit-a-thon, and I'm worried the same thing will happen! Thanks for your assistance. Revmlibrary (talk) 00:44, 29 March 2023 (UTC)

    I've been getting into closing requested moves, but often come across requests I would close but can't because they involve round-robin moves or similar. ■ ∃ Madeline ⇔ ∃ Part of me ; 20:24, 29 March 2023 (UTC)


    As global rollbacker, I already have the ability to revert page move vandalism, but I'm requesting this right for future opportunities to assist the page renaming procedures. For example, I sometimes see talk pages moved in to draft namespace without redirect (QD G8), and I thought I can use this privilege for this task. As additional references, I will also provide my move logs in other English-used projects (simplewiki, ENWV, ENWQ, Commons), where similar naming conventions exist. I already have the same user rights in English Wikiversity (as curator), and I believe I can use the tools without trouble. Thank you for your attention. MathXplore (talk) 13:02, 30 March 2023 (UTC)
    Requests for pending changes reviewer

    Pending changes reviewer


    Hello! I wish to be granted pending changes rights because I want to help out in pending changes. I have experience editing in the recent changes patrol, and therefor have experience with counter vandalism. I have read all relevant documentation, and I believe I am eligible for Pending changes reviewer rights. I would also be open in being granted a trial period, if that suits better.

     Not done You were told to give it another month or two and a few hundred more edits eight days ago. You are still just shy of even 100 edits. Looking desperate to get a user right is the surest path to seeing your request denied. Beeblebrox (talk) 00:45, 30 March 2023 (UTC)

    Please put this request on hold for 2 days. -MP1999 talk 14:35, 27 March 2023 (UTC)
    @MP1999 It may be better to just withdraw this request and reapply in two days. Just a non admin suggestion! - 🔥𝑰𝒍𝒍𝒖𝒔𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝑭𝒍𝒂𝒎𝒆 (𝒕𝒂𝒍𝒌)🔥 01:17, 28 March 2023 (UTC)
    Am I now eligible for this? -MP1999 talk 14:55, 29 March 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. — TheresNoTime (talk • they/them) 15:00, 29 March 2023 (UTC)

     Done — please take more care in warning those you revert though. — TheresNoTime (talk • they/them) 16:52, 28 March 2023 (UTC)


    While I am obviously not the most experienced wikipedian, as seen in my previous requests for this permission, I feel that I after have taken a short time away from major editing, which admittedly isn't the best idea, but I have still been around reading some policies, which has lead to me considering myself capable of being a rollbacker, along with the fact that I have developed policy knowledge from being a NPR and PCR since the last request I made. I would benefit from the perm, because the tools such as Huggle and SWViewer would make it possible for me to make more contributions and SWViewer is somewhat possible to use on mobile, which is often when I don't edit Wikipedia because I am on mobile. Thanks, Zippybonzo | Talk (he|him) 18:37, 27 March 2023 (UTC)

     Done (temp) — TheresNoTime (talk • they/them) 15:01, 29 March 2023 (UTC)


    I do a significant amount of reverting vandalism, and have probably reverted thousands of instances at this point. Many of these are edits that have gone undetected for years, so rollback would not help with those; some instances, however, are the latest edit, and since I find vandalism by searching for common terms/phrases, they are almost always obvious cases. Such searches usually return hundreds or thousands of possibly vandalized cases, so rollback would speed up the process. Hundreds or thousands of pages also means a lot of potential false positives (e.g., typos, pubic => public being the classic examples) and accidental additions (e.g. page splits carrying vandalism with them), so I'm used to sussing out those.

    Since it may be mentioned: I have not been warning IPs who are inactive and whose vandalism has occurred a while ago, as there is very little chance they will see it. I can start if you'd like, but for that kind of user it seems like wasted effort.

    (I am somewhat scared of what the bot will say my edit count is...) Gnomingstuff (talk) 18:47, 29 March 2023 (UTC)

     Done. The bot only talks when the edit count is on the low side, but you're almost at 20,000 :). —Femke 🐦 (talk) 18:56, 29 March 2023 (UTC)
