Please consider accepting BD2412's invitationEdit

@UDScott: On December 26 you posted in favor of taking the permanent edit protection off of WQ:WQ, BD2412, who placed the protection and declines to unprotect the page, invited you to unprotect it, saying "if you want to unprotect the page, you have that authority." Would you please consider accepting this invitation? Butwhatdoiknow (talk) 22:02, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

I have considered it, but this is still a site based on consensus and it seems that this is not a settled topic. Just because I do not see the harm at the moment in removing the strict protection level does not mean that I act on my own, which is why I have hesitated. As a compromise, I will lower the protection below admins, but this page will be closely watched and is subject to further protection in the future. ~ UDScott (talk) 13:35, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of my request. Butwhatdoiknow (talk) 19:06, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

The West WingEdit

The Pilot episode wasn't the only one with more than five. There are several others with at least six, so I'm going to trim them. Fair's fair. Joe Bethersonton (talk) 21:41, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Please edit protect Ferris Bueller's Day OffEdit

As you may recall, a couple months ago @WikiLubber: and I had a lively discussion regarding Ferris Bueller's Day Off. During that discussion WikiLubber made frequent edits to the page itself, constantly moving the goal post. I would like to resume the discussion but fear it will not be productive if WikiLubber continues to "edit while discussing." Would you please temporarily edit protect Ferris Bueller's Day Off so we can focus on the discussion? (Note: I made a previous request to Miszatomic but received no response.)

Why protect it if there has hardly been an edit on that page over the past few months? And why bother continuing that already-resolved discussion when the page is all right as it is now? WikiLubber (talk) 04:37, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
The edits, mostly yours, stopped when our discussion stopped. Our discussion stopped because you kept editing (making it impossible to resolve one issue before you created a new one) not because the original discussion was resolved. Butwhatdoiknow (talk) 05:55, 2 March 2019 (UTC)
Do you have any proof that was the reason? Because there was (and still is) nothing worth editing if I could not remove quotes to keep within the quote limitations, regardless of the discussion. And the discussion was resolved. End of this discussion. And I did not start that issue. You did, adding absolutely unnecessary information that even IMDB does not need.

I don't see an immediate need to protect the page, but if you two try to resolve your differences, please refrain from doing so through edit-warring. Instead, I suggest you use the article's talk page or the Village Pump (if you need others to comment). I will keep an eye on things as I am able, so I will step in if it becomes necessary.
