Current requests for reduction in protection level[edit]

Request unprotection of a page, or reducing the protection level

Before posting, first discuss with the protecting admin at their talk page. Post below only if you receive no 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.

Free Church of England[edit]

Reason: The protection is no longer necessary as the problems that caused vandalism have now passed. I think that Semi protected status would now be most suitable. Arrowe6365 (talk) 21:27, 19 April 2024 (UTC)

The problem was a COI, not vandalism, and I don't see how that would have "passed". - Sumanuil. (talk to me) 06:02, 20 April 2024 (UTC)
  • Pinging Anachronist, who did the original protection. The original protection was a bit of a nuclear bomb, as it had never been protected before, however, it was a highly effective and innovative use of the tools, so I'm not complaining. I'm thinking semi (or unprotect) might be ok at this point. The original "problem" editors haven't edited since protection was put in place. The article doesn't attract a lot of traffic, and if the problem pops back up, it can be dealt with at that time. Dennis Brown - 06:09, 20 April 2024 (UTC)

Yury Ivanov-class intelligence ship[edit]

Reason: I think that protection of the page is no longer necessary, as no incidents involving these vessels have occurred in almost a year, so the reason for protection is no longer relevant. IvtI 09 (talk) 12:51, 20 April 2024 (UTC)

This page was protected under the auspices of WP:GS/RUSUKR and shouldn't be unilaterally unprotected. —Jéské Couriano v^_^v Source assessment notes 15:42, 20 April 2024 (UTC)

Current requests for edits to a protected page[edit]

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 new page reviewer

New page reviewer[edit]


I have made many constructive edits to Wikipedia, and have a decent amount of experience in Articles for Creation, and I have approved AfC reviewer for nearly 1 year. I have had no controversy thus far while working in this area. I mainly want to focus on patrolling the backlog of redirects, but occasionally I would also review articles. I also know my limits, and only work in the areas I am confident in, or I seek help. I am big on assuming the good faith of editors and pointing them in the right direction if their efforts are misguided, as I often do at AfC. aaronneallucas (talk) 04:40, 12 April 2024 (UTC)

User:Dan Leonard[edit]

I'm nearing the end of my trial period just as the May backlog begins and I'd like to keep my permissions to participate. I've been intermittently active with new page patrol and I think my page curation log should show fairly uncontroversial activity and AfDs with consensus for my proposals. Reviewing the log myself there are two articles I marked as reviewed but were later deleted, but both appear to have been deleted for G5 (created by banned user) and not for notability or other content reasons.

User:Storye book[edit]

On 13 December 2023 I was granted a 3-month new page reviewer rights trial, which expired on 12 March 2024. I reviewed 5 new articles in 2023, and 8 new articles in 2024. My habit is to spend a lot of time on each article, helping to expand them sometimes, and helping to bring some of them to DYK - which is why I did not attempt to achieve high numbers of new page article reviews.

Being overloaded with WP research (some for my local Civic Society, which wanted WP articles on several historical subjects - all for free of course) I have had to miss out on new page reviews for a while. I was also needed to help with the recent DYK review backlog. But I would like to get back to it. So if you think that I have been useful so far, please would you kindly extend or confirm my new page reviewer rights? I have added my name to the May 2024 new page review list, but would like confirmation that I am still a valid member of this working group. Thank you.

Hello! In December of 2023 I applied for New Page Reviewer Rights and given a 1 month trial period then again in January of 2024 I was granted 3 months. I am here today to apply for permanent rights. Over the last 90 days I have reviewed 370 articles. A short background on myself I've been on Wikipedia for over eight years and have created 47 active article on EN Wikipedia. I have strong knowledge of the policies that a NPP reviewer must follow and how each article should be treated. I would like to to continue to help decease the large article backlog currently on Wikipedia. I would be happy to answer any questions. Thank you! Grahaml35 (talk) 17:17, 17 April 2024 (UTC)

Hi, I'd like to help with the backlog, I enjoy doing maintenance tasks like WP:CAT and WP:ORPHAN and I've submitted AfDs for articles I've come across in this process:

as well as taking part in more contentious deletions. Obviously still learning but have experience of quite a few different outcomes now such as redirect, merge and transwiki options. Orange sticker (talk) 11:33, 18 April 2024 (UTC)


Hi, I'm volunteering to help in patrolling new pages on Wikipedia. Over the months I have stayed here, I've learnt much on relating with editors including the early mistakes I did at first; those have improved my person. It's also pleasing participating in the May drive. Thanks for considering me.— Safari ScribeEdits! Talk! 15:40, 18 April 2024 (UTC)


Hi, I would like to start start volunteering to help patrol pages across the Wikipedia site. I've been on the site for quite some time, sometimes I may make some mistakes around but it has led me to create more pages and overall be a more active person. I find it pleasing to help Wikipedia more and make it a more pleasing, friendly and diligent environment of people. Thank you for looking through, and hope whoever sees this has a blessed day.

I have actively participated in numerous AFD discussions and have also initiated several. My experience primarily revolves around Indian Film articles, where I've created many articles. I also have dealt with issues such as paid and spammy citations with Admin “Kuru”. While I currently review new articles from the 'New pages feed,' I lack the authority to accept them. However, I regularly tag articles for speedy deletion when they meet the criteria, resulting in their removal. I'm now requesting a one-month trial for the New Page reviewer right. If my contributions are deemed beneficial, I hope to continue, but if not, I understand and am willing to relinquish the right after the trial period. Grabup (talk) 06:54, 20 April 2024 (UTC)

Page mover[edit]


I'm an Articles for Creation reviewer and I need this right to make things easier. One of my recent submission reviews needed a move without redirect, but I couldn't as I didn't have that right yet. There have been many such incidents and will be in the future. I wish to be granted this right and I believe I meet the requirements now (was declined previously). Thank you.

 Automated comment This user has had 1 request for page mover declined in the past 90 days ([4]). MusikBot talk 19:30, 15 April 2024 (UTC)
 Not done, as I am not seeing a regular need for this right. One RM participation and no RM/TR requests, and a single need to delete a redirect (which upon further review was not even necessary) does not indicate a habit. Primefac (talk) 11:35, 18 April 2024 (UTC)


I am requesting this right for the following reasons:

  1. ) To perform non-controversial page moves
  2. ) To undo incorrect/non-discussed controversial page moves
  3. ) To help move discussed moves
  4. ) To be able to move my sandboxes into articles when they are ready (as some are currently redirects)
  5. ) To assist with moving categories
  6. ) To help others with moving pages

I have participated in various requested moves and I have performed some myself in order to acquire to naming conventions (both within pages in the main space and from my sandboxes to the main space), and I have also started a few move discussions too. I know about Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, including naming conventions, and I often take part in AFD and other discussions, and I also have created articles and categories. I am happy to answer any questions or do a trial run. DaniloDaysOfOurLives (talk) 13:38, 16 April 2024 (UTC)

 Not done for now, as I do not really see a large need for this permission. You have barely a dozen article-space moves in the last two years, and while you do have a reasonable amount of RM participation I don't see much in the way of closing those moves (which you do not need this perm for doing). In other words, you say you want to continue doing a half-dozen different things, but I don't really see any evidence of you doing them now. Primefac (talk) 11:42, 18 April 2024 (UTC)
@Primefac: Regarding #5 and #2, these are not possible without the permission - there have been many examples of me wanting to move pages and categories to meet the naming conventions but I have been unable to as I do not have the permission. The same is also true for the others - for example, yesterday I wanted to move John McBain (character) to John McBain (One Life to Live) to meet the correct naming conventions, but I am unable to do so as a redirect for the latter already exists. Regarding #4, there is a lot standing in the way of me moving multiple pages from sandboxes to the main space if the redirects already exist. Yes, it is possible to ask admins to delete the redirects or move the pages, but this often takes a while and adds more work to me and the admins and that is partially why I was requesting it. Regarding closing the moves, I have actually never had the chance to as they have nearly always been closed by other editors beforehand (and also, I have been told by other editors that it is discouraged to close moves which you comment on). Had I had the permission, the amount of articles I would have moved in the past 2 years would be much higher (both my own articles and others, including undoing undiscussed/controversial moves). Hence, that is why I suggested a trial run in order to illustrate my need for the permission and how I would do it correctly. DaniloDaysOfOurLives (talk) 15:50, 18 April 2024 (UTC)
I'm not going to go point-by-point through your arguments, but generally speaking we don't grant this permission because someone might find it useful, we grant it because they have demonstrated that they have been going through the proper (non-perm'd) channels and it's getting to be tiresome for them. So far you have said that it would be nice to be able to do all of these things, but as of right now you do not appear to be doing all of these things.
As a minor note about "moving sandboxes" - if there's a redirect, just edit the page and overwrite it. Unless there were multiple editors editing your sandbox, there is no reason to move the entire page. Primefac (talk) 16:55, 18 April 2024 (UTC)
Requests for pending changes reviewer

Pending changes reviewer[edit]


There are a number of articles on my watchlist that require pending changes to be reviewed. This would facilitate reviewing those changes and approving or declining them as appropriate. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:24, 15 April 2024 (UTC)

I can't say I'd use this often and am not intending to patrol, but a number of the pages on my watchlist have pending-changes protection (even by my request) and I do sometimes see good edits to them awaiting acceptance. I am accustomed to filtering out vandalism, test edits, unsupported edits and the like, and to following WP:BLP (though a lot of my watchlist's deep in ancient history and mythology).

Requests for rollback



I am TheTechie. I was suggested by User:Synorem to become a rollbacker as I, at least in their words, am encouraged to apply for rollback. I meet the requirements as follows:

  1. As of this writing, I have 448 undeleted mainspace edits. 448 > 200
  2. I have been patrolling recent changes for a month+.
  3. I have not edit warred recently (frankly, I don't remember edit warring at all since I got this account)
  4. I consistently notify editors when I revert their edits which appear to be vandalism, and where there would be an obvious need to do so.

Requesting permission because of these reasons. Thanks --- thetechie@enwiki: ~/talk/ $ 01:49, 16 April 2024 (UTC)

I'm curious why you felt it was appropriate to add yourself to add yourself as a CVUA trainer when you clearly lack the necessary experience (and then respond very defensively when Cassiopeia correctly called you out for it). There's also a lot of recent warnings/complaints on your talk page concerning basic understanding of our policies/guidelines. I'd prefer that requesters have a good understanding of these things before assigning them advanced permissions. Perhaps you'd like to comment on that? -Fastily 23:28, 16 April 2024 (UTC)
I didn't think there was an edit count associated with it.
About the threads on my talk page on your permalink:
  1. WP:MAINPAGE was for April Fools.
  2. Ok, I agree that my CSD nominations are a hit or miss. I thought the Mama Lion wasn't very notable due to 3-4 sources. I will note that PROD/AFD is the way to go next time.
  3. About the CSD for the Gen Beta page, I reached an understanding by talking (politely) with other edits on whether G4 would apply. I told them that a comment was made during the AFD saying we could use G4 to create recreations, and after another admin told me to keep the page, I didn't re-tag it.
  4. About my signature: When pigsonthewing inquired about my signature, I was simply waiting for a third opinion. I agreed to change my signature after I had heard from a third opinion. And when Yamla asked me to remove the background from my signature, I complied.
  5. About CVUA: I didn't mean to sound defensive. I just was trying to understand. And in this diff I complied after the user explained to me. I did not re-add my name.
  6. About the signature of Nate: I read that you cannot have a name that is not similar to your username, which is why I brought it up elsewhere. I'm sorry if I sounded rude, but I've had a long day today and can't bother having any more problems. Maybe I'll take a wikibreak if need be.
I hope that clears it up User:Fastily. thetechie@enwiki: ~/talk/ $ 02:03, 17 April 2024 (UTC)
Thanks, but I get the impression that you're still very green around here and still have a lot to learn. Totally fine though, we all were at some point, however I think you'd benefit from more experience before applying for advanced permissions. Keep up the good work, and consider reapplying in a month. As such, closing as  Not done. -Fastily 20:07, 17 April 2024 (UTC)
I understand, thank you. thetechie@enwiki: ~/talk/ $ 20:16, 17 April 2024 (UTC)


Reason for requesting rollback rights: Hi! I am Vestrian24Bio; I have been editing on Wikipedia for almost 2 years now, I have made 2000+ edits and I have already reverted 200+ vandalisms, mostly using Twinkle. See my contributions here. Now, having the Rollback permission would be more helpful in patrolling vandalisms and it would grant me access to using the AntiVandal thus, making it easier to fight vandalisms. 𝓥𝓮𝓼𝓽𝓻𝓲𝓪𝓷24𝓑𝓲𝓸 (ᴛᴀʟᴋ) 04:11, 17 April 2024 (UTC)

 Not done I reviewed your contributions and found little to no recent anti-vandalism work. If you're still interested in this tool then please spend at least a month actively patrolling RecentChanges (Twinkle & Ultraviolet can help with that) before reapplying. Also, please ensure that you are consistently warning editors when you revert their edits. Thanks, Fastily 20:07, 17 April 2024 (UTC)
Okay, Thanks 𝓥𝓮𝓼𝓽𝓻𝓲𝓪𝓷24𝓑𝓲𝓸 (ᴛᴀʟᴋ) 03:16, 18 April 2024 (UTC)


Reason for requesting rollback rights. I have at least 200 mainspace edits, frequently warn users, and no edit warnings. However, I do not yet have a month of experience patrolling Recent Changes. I would like to request rollback rights because it would be easier for me to revert vandalism through View History. I have a habit of going back to View History after comparing edits, and having the Rollback user right would make it easier for me to revert edits on View History pages.

Well that doesn't look like "at least 200" to me. Synorem (talk) 17:27, 17 April 2024 (UTC)
Agreed. thetechie@enwiki: ~/talk/ $ 17:27, 17 April 2024 (UTC)

 Not done I noticed you started actively reverting vandalism 4 days ago. While I appreciate your enthusiasm, I'd like to see you spend more time gaining experience fighting vandalism before assigning you advanced permissions. Keep up the good work, and consider reapplying in a month. Also, please ensure that you are consistently warning editors when you revert their edits (I recommend using tools such as Twinkle or Ultraviolet which makes this extremely easy). Thanks, Fastily 20:07, 17 April 2024 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. I will continue to revert vandalism for some time and warn users. Myrealnamm (💬talk · ✏️contribs) at 21:02, 17 April 2024 (UTC)


I've been patrolling Recent Changes for around a month or so, reverting any vandalism I come across, while also warning/notifying other users about their edits and why it was reverted. Having rollback would allow me to use AntiVandal, which is quite faster in reverting vandalism than RedWarn(the script I am using currently), while also allow quickly rollback edits without having to add a reason. That helps me deal with the edit and move onto other vandalism on the RC list. Some more info that you may want is that I have no warnings, no instances of edit-warring, joined 3/12/2024, which was around 36 days ago, and a near, if not perfect, track record in notifying users.

Requests for template editor

Template editor[edit]


I regularly edit templates while working on various articles on my watchlist, or when creating new articles that are part of something covered by a template. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:26, 15 April 2024 (UTC)

 Automated comment This user has had this permission revoked in the past 180 days ([5]). MusikBot talk 17:30, 15 April 2024 (UTC)
Only because it was part of the admin package. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 17:33, 15 April 2024 (UTC)
I don't think this should be controversial, but pinging JJMC89 for comment as they removed this permission earlier today — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 17:57, 15 April 2024 (UTC)
Please run through WP:TPEGRANT 5 and 6. I'm not seeing the need based on their recent template edits. — JJMC89(T·C) 18:16, 15 April 2024 (UTC)
If you are willing to grant it it to me, fine. If not, fine. It's not worth my time to argue with you. ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 19:01, 15 April 2024 (UTC)
 Not done per JJMC89. -Fastily 03:54, 16 April 2024 (UTC)
I don't understand this decision. The user easily meets criterion 5. There is nothing in the guideline that says the edits need to be "recent". I don't see how criterion 6 can apply because an admin would not usually be requesting edits to template-protected templates? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 08:30, 16 April 2024 (UTC)
Perhaps you would be willing to discuss your decision, or would you mind if I overturned it? — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 21:31, 17 April 2024 (UTC)
I agree with JJMC89. Rights are assigned on as-needed basis. Given that OP's admin/crat bits were just revoked for cause, I think it's completely appropriate to be discerning here -Fastily 03:53, 19 April 2024 (UTC)

    "Do you want to take a survey?"[edit]

    On Feb. 12, 2005, I did a random pages survey. Out of 100 random pages, only 1 was a U.S. town. That's progress. Three towns in the UK, 1 in Spain and 1 in Portugal also turned up. Overall biographies were the largest category at 22%, followed by geography with 15% total. Then Lists at 7%, Disambiguation pages at 6%.

    On Feb. 24, 2006, I repeated the 100 random page survey, this time getting 5 U.S. towns. Overall, geography had 26%, biography 21%, fiction 9%, music 4%, colleges 4%, lists 3% and disambigs 4%. Clearly geography and biography are our largest areas. Music, science and business scored less than I expected. Non-individual History was hardly discernable.

    Even by Feb. 2005, 100 out of almost 500,000 was not statistically significant but was as much as I had patience for.

    Short To Do list[edit]

    Early Anon work, no need to bug the developers[edit]

    Up to Dec 16, 2003, all the edits at these anonymous id's were mine (59 edits):

    More recently 1,250 or so edits on are apparently all mine. Apparently my new ID is There are undoubtedly many others as the earliest history of many articles was not preserved by the software.
