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

This template is used for user talk pages about living persons which are semi-protected or fully protected temporarily due to the blocked user abusing access to their talk page. Before you protect a user talk page, consider whether amending their block to prohibit editing the page would be more effective - this might not be possible for long blocks where you don't want to prevent access for the full period.

When used for semi-protection this template categorizes articles into Category:Wikipedia semi-protected user and user talk pages. When used for full protection this template categorizes articles into Category:Wikipedia protected user and user talk pages. For pages which are protected for sock puppetry, {{pp-sock}} should be used.

This template will not be visible on pages that are not protected. Adding this template to an article does not protect it. Protection can only be applied by administrators, and can be requested at Wikipedia:Requests for page protection.

Usage[change source]

  • Use {{pp-usertalk}} for the normal template
  • Use {{pp-usertalk|user=username}} to specify another user
  • Use {{pp-usertalk|reason=because ...}} to replace the user links with a more appropriate reason
  • Use {{pp-usertalk|expiry=September 2, 2021}} for a specific expiration date
  • Use {{pp-usertalk|small=yes}} for just an icon at the top
  • Use {{pp-usertalk|expiry={{subst:#time:F j, Y|+7 days}}}} for a specific expiration time period
