Administration Services

Sysop List | Guidelines | Policies (Discussion) | Promotions (Bureaucrat) | Re-Evaluations

Deletions (Scheduling) | Speedy Deletions | Undeletions | Vandal Banning (Bots) | Vandal Data (De-Escalations)

Protections (Scheduling) | Move Requests | Arbitration | Misconduct | Demotions | Discussion | Sysop Archives

This page will be used for users to request that pages falling into certain categories be protected as appropriate by a sysop without having to go through the protections page. A list of pages in the Scheduled Protections list is located here.

Protection Scheduling

Protection Scheduling requests should be requested in the same general format as Deletions. Votes will occur in the same general manner, and like deletion scheduling requests will be voted on for two (2) weeks, as judged by the initial datestamp. Valid votes are:

  • Yea - Approval of Schedule Request
  • Nay - Disapproval of Schedule Request

Remember that votes must be signed and datestamped (use ~~~~)

After the two weeks are up, if the page has reached at least a 50% majority in favour it is added to the Scheduled list. If the vote fails, it will be cycled as unsuccessful. The closed request can then get shifted to the Archive.

Scheduling requests under consideration

Historical Groups Protection amendment

Current Guideline: "Groups that are listed in Category:Historical Groups, and their talk pages."

Proposal: Remove "talk pages" from the scheduled protection.

I don't see much reason for talk pages of historical groups to also be protected. In many instances we are just protecting a page that has no recent content on it (the 'historical' content has already been archived, such as with recent additions MCM) and it also takes away the opportunity for members of the community to actually leave messages to the group, perhaps with memories, or any kind of communication request that still may be valid despite the group being historical.

It also makes it impossible for non-sysops to do any janitorial notifications or ark work (eg. my post on MCM's current talk page).

I don't see the reasons for this outweighing the benefits of unprotecting group talk pages. Please let me know what your thoughts are, or vote accordingly.


  1. A quick note too: The other scheduled protection for Historical Group's sister category, Historical Events, was specifically designed in 2009 to not include protection on the talk page. No issue has come of that choice in the past 10 years so I'd be surprised if issues arise with this. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION 03:08, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
  2. See no harm in that. -- Spiderzed 11:20, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
  3. Yeah, I think the opportunity to discuss the historical groups on an associated page would be an asset. --LordMoloch (talk) 21:44, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

  5. Yes, please unprotect. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 12:22, 30 April 2019 (UTC)
  6. Yea. --  AHLGTG 23:00, 30 April 2019 (UTC)
