Remove that Shartak box things, since the game is being rolled back to August 9th after Shartak 2.0 and I don't know how long that'd take. --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 20:58, 30 August 2009 (BST)

Done. Cyberbob  Talk  08:04, 31 August 2009 (BST)

Done--The General T Sys U! P! F! 20:02, 27 August 2009 (BST)


Protection to prevent new users uploading to it (Cheese informs me this works) as it's the image link given if you use the button in the toolbar which means it got several different uploads in the past even when it was already in active use. See the logs. I uploaded a few replacements to make articles historically correct and got the earliest revisions a while back. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 22:21, 25 August 2009 (BST)

Done. =) -- Cheese 22:23, 25 August 2009 (BST)


We've now finished reviewing all the guides. I'll put up a notice now saying that guides need to be sent to Guides/Review before being placed on the page, we might as well protect the page so poorly-written guides don't get added again. Linkthewindow  Talk  12:46, 16 August 2009 (BST)

Hmm.. If we do this we essentially limit the act of cycling guides/voting to sysops... I don't think it should happen. If someone tries to slip a page in there, it won't be too hard to find out and revert it. Think like GAs. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 02:58, 17 August 2009 (BST)
Yeah, point taken. I'll let this sit here for a while if anyone wants to say anything more. I imagine enough people have Guides on their watchlist by now anyway ;). Linkthewindow  Talk  07:43, 17 August 2009 (BST)
;). I don't mind having a discussion if any sysops want to talk about it more, but as it stands I'd prefer to leave the page open. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 08:21, 17 August 2009 (BST)

Bit of time's past, I'll consider this request closed. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 15:29, 19 August 2009 (BST)


Just a note to say I've protected our newest addition to the A/ shortcut family (as per the other administration shortcut redirects). --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 15:20, 19 August 2009 (BST)


I need to be protected from charlie who wants to ban me for something i didnt do--Shakey BBK 11:43, 16 August 2009 (BST)

Won't actually make a difference, but anyway, protected. Linkthewindow  Talk  12:46, 16 August 2009 (BST)
So now I cant be banned coz I am protected? thanks for that--Shakey BBK 12:47, 16 August 2009 (BST)
You can still be banned, a non-sysop just can't edit your page. No idea where you got the "can't be banned" idea from anyway :/. Linkthewindow  Talk  12:50, 16 August 2009 (BST)
I thought that I was being protected?--Shakey BBK 12:51, 16 August 2009 (BST)
It's protecting the page User:Shakey60, not the account. Linkthewindow  Talk  12:53, 16 August 2009 (BST)
You've posted on A/PT, which is used to request protection for pages. There is no way to protect a user from being banned using the wiki software. I've unprotected your page for now. Linkthewindow  Talk  12:58, 16 August 2009 (BST)
fgt--Shakey BBK 12:59, 16 August 2009 (BST)--Shakey BBK 12:59, 16 August 2009 (BST)
sure is 4chan around here Cyberbob  Talk  13:00, 16 August 2009 (BST)
how can cybrobob be posting here I thought you protected it link--Shakey BBK 13:01, 16 August 2009 (BST)
I protected your page, not this page UDWiki:Administration/Protections. Anyway, your page has been unprotected now. Linkthewindow  Talk  13:02, 16 August 2009 (BST)
ok, please protect this page and my userpage from cybrobob--Shakey BBK 13:05, 16 August 2009 (BST)
you and whoever else is at your house tonight for some "lulz" (the coolest thing to be doing with your friends is going on the internet after all) are pretty bad at trolling, sorry :\ Cyberbob  Talk  13:12, 16 August 2009 (BST)
shut the fuck up it's cool and you wish you had contacts you could lulz about on the wiki with.--xoxo 00:58, 25 August 2009 (BST)
lollllll Cyberbob  Talk  03:44, 25 August 2009 (BST)

OK. Just to clear this up: You cannot be protected from being banned. The only thing that protection does is to prevent edits from being made to a page. A page cannot be protected from specific users. Now, please quit being an idiot and find something better to do with your time.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 21:17, 25 August 2009 (BST)

Guides:A Beginners Guide to Urban Dead

I would formally like to request protection for this page again. I had protection for the page once before, right after I put it togethor. Needless to say, when I took a hiatus, some how, the protection was removed. You can see on the discussion page that it was severly altered (I can assume that this happened soon after the protection was removed).

I wish to have this page preserved until I request that the protection be removed because:

  • I wish to preserve it as a reference tool as it was (historical value? [however little])
  • For my own personal use in the future
  • And until I can get around to editing My Own article myself

I am only requesting protection for the article, not for the discussion page.

Thanks, -Poodle of doom 23:34, 12 August 2009 (BST)

Just make a copy of it in your userspace. Pages in the main space really aren't owned by anyone, especially not if numerous people have edited them (as is the case here). Cyberbob  Talk  14:28, 13 August 2009 (BST)
As Cyberbob says, we don't really have page ownership on a wiki. Anyone is free to edit any page as long as it is in good faith (i.e. not vandalism). If you want to keep a personal page which only you are allowed to edit then you are free to copy it into your userspace.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 14:40, 13 August 2009 (BST)
So I'd have to make a subpage under my name. Something like User:Poodle of doom/A Beginners Guide.... sounds good. I'll do that, then request a speedy deletion. Just so I have more insight as to what the process is though.... how did I get protection on it last time? -Poodle of doom 02:36, 14 August 2009 (BST)
No idea. Can you remember roughly when it was? Cyberbob  Talk  02:40, 14 August 2009 (BST)
It was because you were the owner of the page, something that was re-established a couple of months ago and was somehow overlooked in this protections request... However, if he's happy with moving it to a user subpage, so be it. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 02:55, 14 August 2009 (BST)
I'm perfectly happy with moving it. Like I said,... I was interested in learning more about the process. -Poodle of doom 03:36, 14 August 2009 (BST)
The process is that people post requests for protections/unprotections and edits to protected pages here. 9 times out of 10 their requests will be granted, but not always. The reasonings for this aren't really set in stone; unlike Speedy Deletions there aren't any criteria set in stone (simply because this isn't the sort of thing that can be codified). Cyberbob  Talk  09:00, 14 August 2009 (BST)
The original protection request is here, it was later unprotected and edited to be just a hub page. Poodle put it up for speedydeletion, but Janus Abernathy found a web archive version of it, so it was put back the way poodle created it -- boxy talkteh rulz 10:10 14 August 2009 (BST)

I'm actually for fulfilling this request, I consider Poodle the owner of this page (it was his guide to start with), he protected with his inactivity in mind and unfortunately it was let loose to another user while he was gone, beyond his control because he was absent. However, if Poodle is content just moving it to his userpage, that's fine, but seriously, what will happen then? He'll work on it in his namespace, then when it's completed he'll just put it back onto the original (Guides:A Beginners Guide to Urban Dead) anyway. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 10:23, 14 August 2009 (BST)

As soon as someone else works on an article I really don't think that the creator can be said to be its owner anymore. Nobody can - that's the whole point of a wiki. Cyberbob  Talk  10:25, 14 August 2009 (BST)
Good point. But if his request had been done to its fullest (ie. the protection of his project until his desire to have it unprotected) it would have remained a product of his work, and we accepted that when we reverted the entire page to his original work as per that A/SD case. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 10:28, 14 August 2009 (BST)
I think we should probably leave it where it is. It will need updating in the future, as the game changes, and we can't guarantee that poodle will be around to do it. If it's going to be a useful guide, it needs to be kept current. Perhaps a simple notice about not making major changes (ie. wiping nearly all of the information and replacing with links) without discussion first -- boxy talkteh rulz 10:34 14 August 2009 (BST)
I agree, the point of a wiki is that a page can be edited by anyone. This guide most likely will need to be edited in the future, so it shouldn't be protected. Wiki etiquette is that you should use the discussion page before making major changes, anyway.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 10:38, 14 August 2009 (BST)
I'm fine with that. The page can stay open. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 10:58, 14 August 2009 (BST)


Just a request that someone fixes the headers on the page - some of those headers are level three, when they should be level two.

Thanks. Linkthewindow  Talk  13:48, 4 August 2009 (BST)

I assume you meant level 4 when they should be level 3, and I assume you had to duck out else you could have just done this yourself. Either way, I've changed all ====headers==== to ===headers===. --ϑϑ 14:11, 4 August 2009 (BST)

Yeah, level three, thanks. And, no, it's not that I had to duck out, just that I should probably ask before editing an archive. Anyway, thanks. Linkthewindow  Talk  21:30, 4 August 2009 (BST)

Just a quick note that I've protected User talk:DanceDanceRevolution/Archive5. --ϑϑ 13:36, 2 August 2009 (BST)
