Talk:Operation WikingerEdit

Hi, since we recently crossed ways on Requests for page protection/Edit (with another IP), I decided to contact you earlier. (If you are still confused User_talk: has some details on my little project, but reading it isn't really needed). Talk:Operation Wikinger is the most recent entry on my list of indefinitly protected talk pages, the odd thing is that the article isn't protected. The recent history looks a bit messy, so protecting the article may make more sense in this case. I will check if the protections changed, otherwise, please just let me know that the matter was already considered. Actually, if you know some good reasons for having a protected talk page with an unprotected article, some hints on how to spot these cases and narrow down my list before contacting other admistrators are also welcomed.

The talk page was a frequent target of WP:LTA/Wikinger, one of Wikipedia's more persistent pests. Why he's more interested in the talk page than the article is beyond me, but I guess we'll now find out if he subscribes to my talk page. The moron is still very much around, so I prefer to keep the protection in place. My opinion on talk page protection in general is – pragmatic and ad hoc.

Thanks, I was suspecting this may be a valid reason for such situations and will take a closer look, at least at the newest examples. (talk) 10:58, 23 October 2021 (UTC)[]


Hi! Instead of blocking the daily socks making disruptive edits − how about semi-protecting the article? Antique Rose 19:06, 25 October 2021 (UTC)[]

I'm still on the fence with regard to protecting that article and Toplessness – the other fixation of this particular weirdo. Since I hit their IP range with a partial block, the disruption is down to appr. one per day, and the effort expended is very much in our favor. So, for the moment, I'm inclined to lean back of savor their frustration. Favonian (talk) 08:15, 26 October 2021 (UTC)[]
