File:The Times - Argentine Capture of the Falkland Islands 1821.jpg[edit]

Almost a week ago, the subject file was full-protected due to revert warring over the image itself and the description, and there was substantial disruption with several users being uncivil, one of whom was blocked and then unblocked on assurances. A consensus has been developed on the attached talk page, as to the File Description, see [1]. In spite of one user who opposed this version, wanting it to be more "encyclopedic," and one who raised objections but wasn't specific about what he wanted, the consensus is clear there.

Hence I request either an edit under protection to that version, or the unprotection of the page. The users who were revert warring have generally become cooperative and civil. Thanks. --Abd (talk) 00:31, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Incidentally, no consensus has been gathered. Remarks not answered remain. --Discasto talk | contr. | es.wiki analysis 11:14, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
Currently the expressed !votes are 5:1 for the proposed change. The only dissent expressed is that of Discasto.[2] It appears that he wants to include original research, opinion, or synthesis that does not enjoy consensus. He did oppose, and explained his opposition, and that was answered,[3] and he has not responded to the answer. There is another more detailed response to his proposals at [4], but consensus is clear at this point.
The matter of translations has not been addressed. If the page is left protected, probably the translations should be removed until there is consensus on them, but my opinion is that the page may be unprotected. Discasto may then assist with translations. At this point, with consensus clear, disruptive editing will be clearly visible as such. Thanks. --Abd (talk) 21:44, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
The last involved user who had not supported the change has now written that it is better than the protected version and that he doesn't care if it's changed.[5].
Please unprotect or make the change. Thanks. --Abd (talk) 02:43, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
