Help:Protected pages

From Wikiwrimo
Jump to: navigation, search

A protected page is a page where normal users are prevented from editing and/or moving at all. Only a user with sysop permissions can edit or move a protected page. Likewise only sysop users can protect a page in the first place, or unprotect the page to lift the restriction.

On Wikiwrimo, there are a couple of reason why a page may be protected:

  • It may have been repeatedly targeted with vandalism or moved to bad titles
  • Vandalism or page moves on such a page would have a unusually severe impact. This is why the main page is protected and why the Wikiwrimo logo page will be protected when it is uploaded.

Page protection limits collaboration on the wiki content, and will be avoided where possible.
