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.

Jordan Henderson

Reason: IP vandalism coming thick and fast tonight, looks like World Cup fallout. Entranced98 (talk) 20:01, 4 December 2022 (UTC)

Update - the most recent World Cup related vandalism spree appears to have stopped, so revising this request to temporary pending changes at most. Entranced98 (talk) 00:40, 5 December 2022 (UTC)

Alistair Johnston

Reason: Player has signed a transfer that takes effect January 1. WP:FOOTY convention is to note this in the intro and leave their current club until it officially takes effect. IPs and other new users keep changing it to now. I've left hidden notes in the code noting that it should wait until Jan 1, but they're ignored and removed and changed RedPatch (talk) 22:38, 4 December 2022 (UTC)

Mattel Films

Reason: Vandalism by two unnamed users who's been putting down unsourced content. BMA-Nation2020 (talk) 00:31, 5 December 2022 (UTC)

Temporary semi-protection: Persistent disruptive editing – Ongoing debate that IP not will to join....let's lock this up to ips. Getting a RFC going on this topic shortly. Moxy-  01:08, 5 December 2022 (UTC)

Pumpkin

Temporary extended confirmed protection: Persistent disruptive editing – The editor Oknazevad is not working with me in good faith -- this editor did not make contact, but instead reverted substantial work of mine and persists in interfering in realtime while I am in the process of improving the article. MarkWKidd (talk) 02:53, 5 December 2022 (UTC)

  Consider the edit warring noticeboard – This is a case of possible edit-warring by one or two users. — TheresNoTime (talk • they/them) 04:06, 5 December 2022 (UTC)

Jude Bellingham

Temporary semi-protection: Vandalism and disruptive editing. Kind Tennis Fan (talk) 03:19, 5 December 2022 (UTC)

Splash Mountain

Reason: Since the recent announcement of upcoming closure, drive-by IP editors insist on entering the closed date even though it has yet to occur and the attraction remains in operation. One such IP editor has already been partially blocked, but partial block did not include this page. JlACEer (talk) 05:16, 5 December 2022 (UTC)

Disruptive editing by IP editor. Ckfasdf (talk) 06:36, 5 December 2022 (UTC)

Yandere Simulator

Reason: At this point, the page has been protected for over two years, and most people who have done something to vandalize the page, no longer bother with the page. Yes, there is vandalism from time to time, but it is very minor, and I think reverting the protection would result in the page becoming more up-to-date, and the size of the page increasing with new info.

I think that would be fine. Wouldn't hurt to test to see if protection is still needed (can't find the relevant guideline for this but I know one exists) ― Blaze WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 20:41, 2 December 2022 (UTC)
Opposed No reason for unprotecting the page has really been given. The page is protected for a reason, and it's only a semi-protect. The lack of updates to the page corresponds more with a lack of new reliable secondary coverage than the fact it is protected. Asking for this decrease every 1-2 months is not going to change my position. You asked with the same rationale in October. Your own edits to the article were reverted, and in the meantime, the only edits to the talk page have been vandalism spillover, showing that there is no demand from IP editors to make constructive edit requests. -- ferret (talk) 21:28, 2 December 2022 (UTC)
