Requests for page protection

This page is for requesting that a page, file or template be protected. Please read up on the protection policy. Full protection is used to stop edit warring between multiple users or to prevent vandalism to high-risk templates; semi-protection and pending changes are usually used only to prevent IP and new user vandalism (see the rough guide to semi-protection); and move protection is used to stop pagemove revert wars. Extended confirmed protection is used where semi-protection has proved insufficient (see the rough guide to extended confirmed protection)

After a page has been protected, the protection is listed in the page history and logs with a short description indicating why it was protected, and the article is listed on Special:Protectedpages. Further discussion should take place on the Talk page of the article. In the case of full protection due to edit warring, admins do not revert to specific versions of the page, except to get rid of obvious vandalism.

Note: Editors should not consider requesting page protection as a method for continuing an argument from elsewhere nor as a venue for starting a new discussion regarding article content. If a request contains excessive argument, appears to be intended to resolve a content dispute, includes personal attacks or uncivil comments, or has any other unrelated discussion, it will be removed from this page and no action will be taken.

Io Shirai

Temporary extended confirmed protection: Persistent disruptive editing – Voilation of MOS:ALLCAPS and MOS:TMTHE by IP users and inexperienced editors since 31 July. They convert her new ring name to all caps (lead section, infobox, and article body). 1-3 month ECP would be helpful to stabilize the article. Mann Mann (talk) 02:12, 10 August 2022 (UTC)

Not done for now. Mann Mann, I notice that they have not reverted since your note on their talk page yesterday. Relist if that changes. El_C 11:41, 10 August 2022 (UTC)

List of wars involving Russia

Reason: Persistent addition of unsourced content, no interest in a talk page discussion. Ymblanter (talk) 14:50, 10 August 2022 (UTC)

Semi-protected for a period of 3 months, after which the page will be automatically unprotected. Favonian (talk) 15:09, 10 August 2022 (UTC)

Gunter Muller

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent disruptive editing – Repeated test editing. I cannot verify any sockpuppetry at this time. Jalen Folf (talk) 15:11, 10 August 2022 (UTC)

Already protected by administrator Ohnoitsjamie. Favonian (talk) 17:16, 10 August 2022 (UTC)

Ethiopian Kale Heywet Church

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent sockpuppetry. M.Bitton (talk) 15:33, 10 August 2022 (UTC)

Matthew Hoppe

Reason: High level of IP vandalism about the same issue. Anwegmann (talk) 16:43, 10 August 2022 (UTC)

Tablet (magazine)

Reason: The page is being repeatedly edited (and then revisions rapidly un-done and re-edited) in a politicized manner by what seems to be a competitor magazine. Examples: repeated addition of "A 2022 editor's note in Jewish Currents characterized it as a "right-leaning American Jewish web magazine," repeated addition of "Oppenheimer issued an apology for the piece, which was described in Jewish Currents as both supporting "an antisemitic stereotype" and avoiding discussion of "the rampant misogyny that exists in both the Jewish and non-Jewish worlds"." Whoever editing this insists on removing pertinent and basic information like Tablet's contributing writers, editors on the masthead, current contributors, and lists of projects and replacing them with cherry-picked controversies. 69.120.26.178 (talk) 16:49, 10 August 2022 (UTC)

Matheus Nunes

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent addition of unsourced or poorly sourced content – Another athlete with speculation about a trade, multiple IP editors changing team as done deal (all unsourced). Schazjmd (talk) 17:06, 10 August 2022 (UTC)
