Wikipedia:Requests for page protection
This page has a backlog that requires the attention of one or more administrators.
Please change this notice to {{No admin backlog}} when the backlog is cleared.

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.

Disappearance of Gabrielle Petito
Disappearance of Gabrielle Petito (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)
Reason: IP and unregistered user disruption based on recent news events. KidAdSPEAK 18:45, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
@KidAd: There is a lot of activity but I don't see many "reverted" tags. Please identify specific problems requiring protection. Johnuniq (talk) 23:23, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
Johnuniq, I think the repeated effort to include a link to Missing white woman syndrome here should be enough, along with off-the-wall material like this. KidAdSPEAK 23:25, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
That's only one link of adding Missing White Woman Syndrome and the other editor would not be affected by semi-protection and they gave a reasonable if idiosyncratic explanation of their edit. Johnuniq (talk) 23:29, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
Declined – Likely collateral damage as one or several users who are making improvements would be affected by the requested protection. Lectonar (talk) 12:41, 19 September 2021 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)
Reason: Temporary semi-protection - IP-hopping racist vandal(s) is/are vandalising this thread, either by removing it wholesale or altering what Historyofiran's saying; in either case edits are accompanied by nationalist invective. —A little blue Bori v^_^v Jéské Couriano 14:16, 19 September 2021 (UTC)

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – Persistent ip vandalism. Someone is obsessed with making up that he's dead - using a falsified source, even. Said source is someone else's obituary that they falsified into the subject's. Crboyer (talk) 14:20, 19 September 2021 (UTC)

Temporary extended confirmed protection: Persistent disruptive editing – Temporary ECP needed on top of the SP; since there is persistent addition of unsourced content (by AC users) owing to the launch of a new series of this. RandomCanadian (talk / contribs) 16:11, 19 September 2021 (UTC)
Trevor Moore (comedian)
Trevor Moore (comedian) (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)
Reason: As soon as prior AC protection ceased on Sep 1 [1] and Pending changes on Sep 18 [2] (both 1 month), vandalism immediately resumed: [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9][10] [11] including subtle changes re: exact death date ([12] [13] [14] [15] [16])

Tachash
Tachash (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)
Reason: Tachash had an article of its own. There is enough material to support an article separate from Tabernacle (of 15 usages in the Bible, 12 are about the Tabernacle's covering). Nine years ago the edit warring was "solved" by a LOCKED simple redirect to a section in Tabernacle named Plan. This request to remove the protection on the redirect is based on a recommendation- please see my talk page for specific wording. User_talk:Pi314m#Your submission at Articles for creation: Tachash (September 6)? Pi314m (talk) 21:49, 9 September 2021 (UTC)
@Robert McClenon: Does the draft article meet Wikipedia's standards for an article in article space? You do not appear to have addressed this in your review. --Malcolmxl5 (talk) 12:45, 10 September 2021 (UTC)
User:Malcolmxl5 - I haven't really reviewed the draft, and am not planning to review the draft while the title is a locked redirect. One of the first things that I tried to do was to tag the redirect with {{R with possibilities}}, which was not possible. There is a history of sockpuppetry with the title, and administrator User:Drmies locked the redirect. I advised the submitter to take one of the following actions: 1. discuss with the locking administrator, User:Drmies; 2. request page unprotection, which is where we are now; 3. request Deletion Review. As a reviewer, I don't want to make a one-person judgment that overlooks a history of disruption. I will say that the article content is satisfactory for an article; what I haven't reviewed is the quality of the references. Robert McClenon (talk) 16:53, 10 September 2021 (UTC)
Malcolmxl5, the problem wasn't edit warring, it was the persistent recreation of a crazy article by a set of socks. I saw no indication in the efforts by this editor that made me think it was going to be any better--and they actually used some of the same weak sourcing, and wrote similarly weak content. Thanks, Drmies (talk) 17:49, 10 September 2021 (UTC)
Not done Procedural close. Lectonar (talk) 12:42, 19 September 2021 (UTC)
Dhar Mann
Dhar Mann (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)
Reason: I recently rewrote Draft:Dhar Mann and the AfC reviewer (​Nomadicghumakkad​) told me the article needs to be unsalted so that it can accepted. Mann's YouTube channel has been covered in much more depth since past AfDs and creation protection in July 2020. I think that points to his notability when combined with coverage on his weed business, legal issues, fraud charges, etc. For reference, I sent a similar request to the protecting admin (Black Kite) before I submitted the article to AfC: User talk:Black Kite/Archive 86#Dhar Mann. Thanks! Aranya (talk) 11:51, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning
Reason: Attempting to accept draft Draft:Baldi’s Basics in Education and Learning from AfC queue. It meets WP:GNG and is ready for mainspace. -Liancetalk/contribs 18:28, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
Came here to request the same. There are two pages with this title (albeit differing apostrophes) that are create-protected, so I added the other as well. The draft should be moved to the one with the straight apostrophe ('). IceWelder [] 13:36, 19 September 2021 (UTC)

Unprotection: Unlikely vandalism target that was preemptively protected. Kleinpecan (talk) 07:42, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
Jexodus
Jexodus (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)
Reason: This article was created in March 2019 right when a new organization was formed, but which changed its name before the month was out because of controversies that played out in real life, the media, and on Wikipedia apparently. Few editors have been able to change the article since 2019 to correct the name change or update information. I'm pretty sure the controversial nature of the [then new] organization has long since passed and the article no longer needs extended confirmed protection. I have drafted a change for the article to update it with the correct name and several citations (as soon as I'm able to make an edit there). Please consider dropping the protection level a notch, perhaps to semi-protection level. Platonk (talk) 19:53, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
Hypebeast
Hypebeast (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)
Reason: Redirect to Streetwear#Hypebeast culture. Page was deleted multiple times in the past as an article. You can semi-protect if you fear inappropriate content will be re-added. wikinights talk 22:36, 18 September 2021 (UTC)
