Template:Namespace has subpages and Module:Namespace has subpages
Now that {{namespace has subpages}} has been converted to use Module:Namespace has subpages in revision 591569658, there’s no longer any need for it to be only semi‑protected.

File:Wiktionary-logo-li.svg
At the request of user Steinbach – sysop of li.wiktionary – at the Illustration workshop, I've made some modifications to the logo of the Limburgish Wiktionary. However, the file is currently fully protected, which only allows administrators to overwrite the file. So I wanna ask if someone could reduce the protection level for a couple of hours so I can upload the newer version? Tks. LX | Talk 16:30, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
@Lệ Xuân: Done. Let me know when you're done so I can re-apply the protection. clpo13(talk) 16:36, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
@Clpo13 I don't know why but for some reason I still get the message "This filename is currently protected from (re)uploading and can be used solely by administrators." LX | Talk 16:45, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
@Lệ Xuân: I thought removing upload protection would be enough, but I guess not. I've removed all protection now. If it still doesn't work, you can upload it by a different name and I can overwrite the old logo. clpo13(talk) 17:03, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
@Clpo13 I tried but it still doesn't work. The new file is: File:Wiktionary-logo-li (new).svg LX | Talk 17:10, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
@Lệ Xuân: All done. Sorry it wasn't working for you. I must have missed something about changing the protection settings. clpo13(talk) 17:16, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
@Clpo13 No problem. Thanks for your help! LX | Talk 17:18, 17 September 2021 (UTC)

POTY config & interface pages
Hello - I requested protection for some of the POTY 2020 pages yesterday, but we then discovered some more that should probably be protected.
The following probably need semi-protection:
And the following could do with TE-protection as they're high-visibility across all POTY pages:
