Don't know if you noticed in the logs, the creeper article had been indef-semi protected before. Based on the rapid-fire vandalism in the brief period it was unprotected, I'm pretty confident that reprotecting for 3 months won't be enough.
- Hey Amatulic; thanks for reaching out! Yeah, I did check the logs. I'd be happy to do so in detail here. I was thinking to do a long temporary protection rather than an indefinite protection because the indef protection was years and years ago (which was the reason it was unprotected to begin with) and the only vandalism edits since the unprotection were in a very brief period of time and likely by the same person. My main thought then was just to prevent the article from vandalism immediately and place an extended protection given its past history, but consider even longer protections once some protection had already been applied. I intend to watch the page once the 3 month protection expires and apply indefinite protection if there is any vandalism, which as I said at User talk:Nixinova#Creeper protection, I find quite likely. I have no objections to any other admin changing the protection to indefinite and I would probably be okay with doing it myself, especially if Nixinova agrees.
- The creeper is very iconic and popular; there are quite a few memes across the Internet about them. I'm not surprised that the page attracts a lot of vandal attention, honestly. Cheers, --Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 19:51, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
- Also, sorry for the late reply; I've been busy and had a power outage, which resulted in the frying of our Internet, we had to by a new router... fun stuff. :)--Madminecrafter12 (Talk to me | View what I've done) 19:52, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
- I unprotected it because it didn't see much vandalism, but having the vandalism start again only a day after I unprotected it is probably a sign it should stay indef'ed. – Nixinova 20:17, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
