This page is for requesting that a page, file or template be fully protected, create protected (salted), semi-protected, added to pending changes, move-protected, template protected (template-specific), upload protected (file-specific), or unprotected. 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.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.If you would like to request a page to be protected or unprotected, please follow the following steps:Administrator instructionsPlace requests for new or upgrading pending changes, semi-protection, full protection, move protection, create protection, template editor protection, or upload protection at the BOTTOM of this section. Check the rolling archive of fulfilled and denied requests or, failing that, the page history if you cannot find your request.

I started a discussion on the talk page but there has been no response and the IP edits continue. TypoBoy (talk) 14:32, 9 January 2016 (UTC)Semi-protection: Constant uncited additions and changes Serendipodous 14:55, 9 January 2016 (UTC)Creation protection: Page created three times in the space of a day. User may not be reading talk page messages. A short protection (I'd recommend 72 hours) should prevent the user from attempting to create the page again. As the title is not relevant to any potential article, a permanent protection could also be used.
