From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

The requests for protection page is where users can request permanent or temporary page protection. Alternately, this page is also used to request unprotection once the dispute has been resolved.

Wookieepedia administrators can raise and lower protection levels at will to prevent vandalism.

Page protection is an administrative power that restricts editing access to certain types of users. Pages can be semi-protected, which means that anonymous and users who have had a registered Wookieepedia account for fewer than three days cannot edit the page or any of its sections. For more severe situations, pages can also be given full protection (aka "locked"), meaning that only the administrators can edit it. An example of a page that is permanently locked is the Main Page. (So don't ask for it to be unprotected).

In addition, users can request unconditional protection and unprotection of pages in their userspace, like user pages, signature pseudo-templates and talk page archives. Talk pages themselves, however, can only be protected in case of repetitive vandalism. For a more detailed explanation of what pages can or should be protected, see Wookieepedia:Protected page.

Please add a new request for protection/unprotection under the appropriate heading, either "Requests for protection" or "Requests for unprotection," in the following format:

===Current date===
#[[Article name]] Give a brief reasoning for changing the page's protection level. Sign with your signature (by typing ~~~~).
#*Subsequent details should be added under the initial report in this form.

A member of the friendly administration will then review your request and make a decision. (Note to Mods: All administrative postings on this matter are encompassed under administrative autonomy).

Always preview the page before submitting your report to avoid problems with formatting.

Listings on this page will be removed after one month and stored in the archive.

Also, one can approach an individual administrator and request for a page to be locked or protected on their talk page.

Requests for unprotection

January 4, 2010

  1. File:Lando smoothie.jpg—Firstly, I would like to add categories and fix the source link, and secondly, there is no good reason for this image to be protected. - JMAS Hey, it's me! 05:10, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
    • It was protected because it was included in the Cape article, which was on WP:CRP even though it was created legitimately some time ago. Should be fixed now. jSarek 06:35, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
    • I see. I was trying to figure out how an image file could be a constantly recreated page. Thanks jSarek. Category and source link fixed now if it needs to be re-protected. - JMAS Hey, it's me! 13:05, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

From Yu-Gi-Oh!

To be removed from play (also called RFG or removed from game) is a term used to describe when a card is removed from the Duel by another card's effect. Once a card is removed this way, it cannot re-enter the current duel, except by a card that specifically allows it, like "Return from the Different Dimension".

Originally, there were not many cards which could remove other cards from play. (e.g. "Nobleman of Crossout".) However, over time, removal has become a popular theme, with several cards to go with it (Chaos and D.D. (Different Dimension) cards, for example.) And, in turn, more cards were created to bring them back (such as D.D.M. - Different Dimension Master, Dimension Fusion and Burial from a Different Dimension, for example.)

Removal is good for breaking strategies, especially when combined with a card like Fiber Jar, which reunites every player's Hand, Deck, Field Contents, and Graveyard, into a new Deck, but doesn't combine cards removed from play. Combined with monsters like Gren Maju Da Eiza, Golden Homunculus or any in the Helios - The Primordial Sun series can give a player some of the highest attack powers in the game.

Since currently, many decks rely on the graveyard, decks that rely on the effects of Dimensional Fissure, Macro Cosmos and Banisher of the Radiance, along with D.D. Survivor have grown in power. Being able to shut down an opponents Graveyard, plus having an 1800 ATK monster in Survivor that keeps returning itself every time it's removed from play while face-up for as long as the removal card is active, have shown themselves to be powerful decks.

The Removed from Play Zone can be placed anywhere on the table, as it has no actual place in the game. However, most typically it is placed above or to the right of the Graveyard Zone or placed face down beneath the graveyard.

A structure deck has been made revolving around removing cards from play called The Dark Emperor.
