Infobox
I do not necessarily believe that "Infoboxes must burn in hell", but I appreciate the problem: A box promises to contain, and things that can't be neatly contained can't be put in boxes. A box suggests "this is the real deal," and if the real deal could be put in a box, then there would be no need for articles. A box says, "Here is your PowerPoint bullet point list, so you can find all the world reduced to a reductive summary; please do not strive to understand complexity, for that is for suckers." A box says, "Wikipedia is just like your primary school text book: full of colors and 'bites' of infotainment." A box says, "I, the box maker, have just pissed all over this article and written a counter-article, and it's short, so read it instead." A box may be found useful by some people, indeed. We call those people "non-readers." (Utgard Loki, at Giano's Talkpage, 16:47, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Method acting

Semi-protection: Disruptive editing by the vandalism-only account Extra_taste_of_knowledge. Attempts to promote actor Mammootty. Uses fake references (which does not cite the content) and meaningless edit summaries copied from others. 137.97.95.20 (talk) 17:31, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

Semi-protected DlohCierekim 18:21, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum

Semi-protection: Persistent vandalism. — Bukhari (Talk!) 01:58, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Declined – Not enough recent disruptive activity to justify protection. seems under control and possibly content related vs outright blatant vandalism. NJA | talk 12:22, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Afghan

Temporary extended confirmed: Persistent sockpuppetry – Semi-protection is not enough. Sockmaster Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Mujhideen101 creates new accounts and bypass 10-edit requirement to edit this page (non-stop sockpuppetry). Please see revision history. Wario-Man (talk) 06:56, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protected for a period of 6 months, after which the page will be automatically unprotected. El_C 07:38, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Indefinite semi-protection: Persistent vandalism – IP vandalism with secondary sources continuously many times. Historybiomastermedicine (talk) 07:49, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Automated comment: A request for protection/unprotection for one or more pages in this request was recently made, and was denied at some point within the last 8 days.—cyberbot ITalk to my owner:Online 07:49, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
Question: What's wrong with using 2ndry sources? El_C 07:53, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
Declined – Content dispute. Please use the article's talk page or other forms of dispute resolution. DlohCierekim 15:50, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
Question: (What would we have if we wrote an encyclopedia based on secondary source?) Also, even if this were a problem, activity insufficient for PP. And certainly not indefinite DlohCierekim 15:50, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Current requests for reduction in protection level

Please post requests in this section for removing or reducing the protection level of a page if the protecting admin is inactive or you have already asked them.
  • To find out the username of the admin who protected the page click on "history" at the top of the page, then click on "View logs for this page" which is under the title of the page. The protecting admin is the username in blue before the words "protected", "changed protection level" or "pending changes". If there are a number of entries on the log page, you might find it easier to select "Protection log" or "Pending changes log" from the dropdown menu in the blue box.
  • Requests to downgrade full protection to template protection on templates and modules can be directed straight here; you do not need to ask the protecting admin first.
  • Requests for removing create protection on redlinked articles are generally assisted by having a draft version of the intended article prepared beforehand.
  • If you want to make spelling corrections or add uncontroversial information to a protected page please add {{Edit fully-protected}} to the article's talk page, along with an explanation of what you want to add to the page. If the talk page is protected please use the section below.

Check the rolling archive if you cannot find your request. Only recently answered requests are still listed here.User:Doug Weller/Decrease

Estado Novo (Portugal)

Unprotection: Discussion has ended and no consensus has been reached, it should be unblocked unless there is more edit warring again. -- 186.213.22.35 (talk) 00:48, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

Declined. Sorry, still not inclined to undo my protection at this time. El_C 00:51, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Automated comment: @186.213.22.35: This request cannot be parsed. Please ensure it follows formatting consistent with the current or previous methods of submission.—cyberbot ITalk to my owner:Online 00:57, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
Note: @186.213.22.35: As consensus has not been attained, unprotecting sounds like asking for trouble DlohCierekim 02:06, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
Requesting immediate archiving... Favonian (talk) 07:19, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
I guess the bot is taking its sweet time. El_C 11:58, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Current requests for edits to a protected page

Ideally, requests should be made on the article talk page rather than here.

  • Unless the talk page itself is protected, you may instead add the appropriate template among {{Edit protected}}, {{Edit template-protected}}, {{Edit extended-protected}}, or {{Edit semi-protected}} to the article's talk page if you would like to make a change rather than requesting it here. Doing so will automatically place the page in the appropriate category for the request to be reviewed.
  • Where requests are made due to the editor having a conflict of interest (COI; see Wikipedia:Suggestions for COI compliance), the {{request edit}} template should be used.
  • Requests to move move-protected pages should be made at Wikipedia:Requested moves, not here.
  • If the discussion page and the article are both protected preventing you from making an edit request, this page is the right place to make that request. Please see the top of this page for instructions on how to post requests.
  • This page is not for continuing or starting discussions regarding content should both an article and its discussion page be protected. Please make a request only if you have a specific edit you wish to make.User:Doug Weller/Edit

Create a level 3 header with a link to the article in question, then a {{Pagelinks}} template and then the reason. It looks like this: Example (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) your request here. ~~~~
