Forum:A convention on protecting new update articles to autoconfirmed

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

These articles continually get vandalised. Whilst this is regularly done, if we could actually have this 'rule' enforced whenever there's a major update it will save a lot of hassle. We can put up a template at the top explaining that the article is of a recent update and therefore protected, or something like that.

It's a convention. We can have some sort of de facto protection time as we go along. What do you think?

Comment - Most of the anon edits from new monsters are helpful edits, like adding what it drops and stuff. It'd be a shame to not let them do that just because a few people decide to vandalize the page. -- Recent uploads SpineTalkContribs 20:19, August 27, 2015 (UTC)

I recognise that this is an unfortunate effect of enforcing this. However, page protection would be temporary, and with this I'd like to say that if someone wants to make constructive edits, they should probably make an account. — Neitiznot (talk) • (editor contributions) 20:23, August 27, 2015 (UTC)

Neutral - I'm not really for or against protecting it from anons. It could help prevent multiple people constantly adding their garbage when no admins are on, but if we had more than 2 active admins this wouldn't even be an issue. Mage Hybrid talk 04:10, August 28, 2015 (UTC)

Closed - There is a lack of consensus. As such, this will not be applied. — Neitiznot (talk) • (editor contributions) 10:02, August 30, 2015 (UTC)
