Template:Edit template-protected

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template may be placed on a talk page to request an edit of the corresponding template-protected template or its documentation subpage (if also protected). The use of this template should be accompanied by a clear and specific description of the requested change, and if the request is anything other than merely technical, consensus should be sought before the template is added (that is, you should seek consensus first, and then place this template after it has been obtained or no objections have been raised). Please see Wikipedia:Edit requests for guidance, especially if this is the first time you are making an edit request.


Basic usage
{{Edit template-protected}}
Specify pages to be edited
{{Edit template-protected|First page to be edited|Second page to be edited|...}}
Deactivate a request
{{Edit template-protected|answered=yes}}
All parameters
{{Edit template-protected|First page to be edited|Second page to be edited|Third page to be edited|...|answered=|demo=}}


All parameters are optional.

  • positional parameters - specify pages to be edited. You can add an unlimited number of pages.
  • answered or ans - set this to "yes", "y", "true" or "1" to mark the edit request as answered. This removes the page from the edit request category.
  • demo - set this to "yes", "y", "true" or "1" to demonstrate the template. This suppresses categories and namespace checks.
  • force - set this to "yes", "y", "true" or "1" to force the template to use a template-protected request rather than automatically detecting the page's protection level. This allows e.g. a template-protected request to be made for a semi-protected page, which would be necessary if you were requesting that the page's content model be changed.
