Self request for revoking[edit]

Hi HJ Mitchell,

Many thanks to you for the approval of my page mover permission. I'm retiring now. And I politely request you to revoke this user right as I don't need it any more.

Thanks, NmWTfs85lXusaybq (talk) 05:32, 1 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

OK to unblock? -- Deepfriedokra (talk) 20:51, 1 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Deepfriedokra done. Could you sort the paperwork? Templates are hard on a phone! Thanks! HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 21:26, 1 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes. Yes they are. -- Deepfriedokra (talk) 21:45, 1 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Signpost: 2 March 2024[edit]

This redirect has been fully protected since April 2023. Is that really still needed? I think it has probably been long enough to unprotect it, or at least try semi-protection. QuicoleJR (talk) 14:45, 3 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@QuicoleJR normally I'd be willing to drop something like this down to ECP but in this case and with this subject I'm afraid the answer is oh hell no. Bloody gamergate is still toxic ten years on! HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 16:01, 3 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Understandable, I just assumed that a redirect would be less likely to be targeted. Thanks. QuicoleJR (talk) 16:07, 3 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Redirects tend to be less watched and they only need infrequent maintenance. And the target article is fully protected, which increases the temptation of the redirect for malicious users. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 16:35, 3 March 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
