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)

Not a blatant violation of the username policy. Consider filing a report at the conflict of interest noticeboard. This seems to be "LillianA Night Media", a name plus their business(they edited about the President of the company) which is expressly permitted as a username format. 331dot (talk) 10:04, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
Wait until the user edits. No indication that this is a company, it could be someone with the initials NE that likes games. FoxyGrampa75 please make sure an account has edited before reporting a username. Thanks 331dot (talk) 10:06, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Anti-Piraeus trolling (part 2)

Semi-protection: High level of IP vandalism. Identical cases with the Eurobasket 1987 (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) article; pls. review archived request on that.

It is a case of cross-wiki trolling, and unproductive editing. For example:

  • In the Germal-language WP article for the Karaiskakis Stadium, see this.
  • In the Germal-language WP article on the Peace and Friendship Stadium, see that.
  • In the Greek-language WP, the article on the Neo Phaliron Velodrome is on the highest protection level, because of the trolling edits of this kind; check [1].
  • In the Greek-language WP article on the Karaiskakis Stadium, the trolling activity of the IPs to transform the appearence of a blue link to an article that has "Pireaus" in its title, in a way to "show" only "Athens" in its palce [2], has been spoted and reverted by a global rollbacker [3] (two times [4], because the trolling IP later returned as user Jjik43). ——Chalk19 (talk) 05:26, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

All this articles and more vandalize by vrahomarinaner for months and some are semi-protected against vandalisms for example https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stade_de_la_Paix_et_de_l%27Amiti%C3%A9 , -https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Est%C3%A1dio_da_Paz_e_da_Amizade , https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stade_Kara%C3%AFskakis -Jjik43 (talk) 07:00, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Please see the karaiskakis and peace and friendship stadium articles before the edit war begins. Chalk19 and Vrahomarinaner related acoounts are ultralocalists pireaus vandals--2A02:587:4404:4D5E:A053:5AE0:D52F:DB5E (talk) 05:29, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

PS. This right-above-us attack against myself by user Jjik43, who insults me by naming me "ultralocalist", is another unquestionable evidence (as already shown in the Eurobasket 1987 case) that this user, most likely an WP:SPA (cf. their contibutions), is behind all those IPs, that he is hiding behind "anonymity" to avoid the braking of the WP:3RR. ——Chalk19 (talk) 05:36, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Vrahomarinaner is behind all those IPs, that he is hiding behind "anonymity" to avoid the braking of the WP:3RR not me I revert Vrahomarinaner related edits, see the Articles before the edit war begins--2A02:587:4404:4D5E:A053:5AE0:D52F:DB5E (talk) 05:39, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

No doubt that the above IP is the SPA Jjik43 in disguise. ——Chalk19 (talk) 05:49, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

I am not jjik43, i revert edits from vrahomarinaner troll months ago--2A02:587:4404:4D5E:A053:5AE0:D52F:DB5E (talk) 05:52, 16 September 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

Unprotection: Remove decade-old move protection to allow non-admin move. Seems no longer necessary. – Ammarpad (talk) 14:07, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

  • Suggest instead a technical move request, as this has been an ongoing issue since at least 2005. KillerChihuahua 17:31, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
    There was NO "ongoing issue since at least 2005" except if there is something deleted that I cannot see. The last disruption was in 2009, that's 10 years ago and I already mentioned that. Before that there was one disruption in 2006, that's a total of two different disruptions in totality. The default standard is for articles to not be protected unless there's necessity for that. There's none here. The article was move-protected after this single filter hit, since then there has never been any filter hit, 10 years down the line. – Ammarpad (talk) 19:10, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
Note: Page has been moved... Lectonar (talk) 06:36, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Unprotection: Remove page protection entirely or decrease it so IPs can make edits that are listed as pending approval. There have been no issues with vandalism in over 13 years, but there have been several IP editors who want to make beneficial changes to the article. 24.217.247.41 (talk) 20:44, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Isn't it the case that vandalism is not currently a problem on the page because of the page protection? Also, page was permanently protected 8 years ago, and the protection log shows several attempts to contain vandalism that did not succeed. – Muboshgu (talk) 20:55, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
Can you link the protection log? So we can compare the attempts at vandalism versus the attempts at contributing to the article fruitfully (pun intended)? 24.217.247.41 (talk) 21:50, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
Surely those aren't really comparable, though. If an IP user wants to contribute, they can easily register as an editor. If there are ongoing attempts at vandalism, removing or decreasing the page protection would just create additional and unnecessary work in monitoring the page? Zzledri (talk) 22:50, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
That's the question. Are "there ongoing attempts at vandalism"? Can you link the records? I don't know how to access the protection log previously mentioned. 24.217.247.41 (talk) 23:29, 14 September 2019 (UTC)
IP, the log page is the last link of the article template at the top this listing. here it is again. --McSly (talk) 23:41, 14 September 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. ~~~~
