This talk page is quite long, and there are sections of it that are protected from editing but are quite long back and forth discussions that seem like they could be refined into a polished form for any newcomers to the page to understand what topics have been discussed here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Lia_Thomas
I find this a bit complicated to know where to begin, because the page seems to be at least semi-protected, so I do not know if trying to edit anything would be worthwhile or may be immediately reverted. There is also a pretty long yellow text box at the top with a lot of general information about the article itself, adding to the overall complexity of understanding it.
Is there a canonical way to approach trying to contribute edits, especially refinements, to this talk page?
Some ideas that come to mind could be:
Can I see who are the most active editors or who have the ability to make protected edits, and maybe create a chat room with them, for ease of communication?
Is there some kind of external mechanism in Wikipedia by which you could receive permission to contribute a particular edit supported by some kind of larger consensus outside of the people active on that particular article?
Simply put, what is an effective way to try to clean this up without a lot of edit reversions?
