This page is for the request of page protection within the Urban Dead wiki. Due to philosophical concerns, the ability to protect pages is restricted to system operators. As such, regular users will need to request a protection from the system operators. For consistency and accountability, system operators also adhere to the guidelines listed here.

Guidelines for Protection Requests

All Protection Requests must contain the following information in order to be considered:

  • A link to the page in question. Preferably bolded for visibility.
  • A reason for protection. This should be short and to the point.
  • A signed datestamp. This can be easily done by adding ~~~~ to the end of your request.

Any protection request that does not contain these three pieces of information will not be considered, and will be removed by a system operator.

Once the protection request has been entered, the request shall remain on this page, where it will be reviewed by a member of the Sysop team, and action taken accordingly. Once action has been taken, the system operator will add a comment including a signed datestamp detailing his course of action, and the request will be moved into the Recent Actions queue, where it will remain for one week. After that week is up, it may be moved to the archive (see navigation box below). If the Protection has been granted, the system operator should place the tag {{protect}} on the page(s) that have been protected.

In the event of a system operator requesting a Protection, all the previous points will apply, excepting that a system operator other than the requestor shall review and take action on the request.

Pages in the Protection Queue may already be scheduled protections. For a list of scheduled protections, see here.

could this page be updated whenever any of you have time? Son of Sin 06:38, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

ust Thad and YoKo, right? Updated. -- Spiderzed 18:13, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
DDR, too. This request should be on A/PT. I'll go ahead and move it over. ~Vsig.png 18:22, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
Also added that ridiculous Miscondrophy fluffy ducky case. Looks like General didn't link it when he cycled it. ~Vsig.png 18:33, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, forgot to update the archive when I moved the case. Intended to go back and do it later, but then forgot again :(.--The General T Sys U! P! F! 12:41, 3 November 2011 (UTC)


I don't have a horse in this game but the Santlerville recent news is currently in the middle of a an argument about what constitutes news. --UroguyTMZ 20:00, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure what page you've requested to be protected or why. I did not see any discussion at all on Santlerville. Could you point to a specific page and also give a specific reason why that page should be protected. Normally it is enough to simply direct people to a discussion page. Protection only need occur if the discussion gets out of hand and turns to vandalism and then it is only a very temporary protection to allow people to cool off. ~Vsig.png 20:43, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
There appears to be a new group that wants to advertise a feature in the Recent News which is being reverted by other people. It's in the page history of the main Santlerville page. And it may not need protection but perhaps just some weighing in on what constitutes news. This may not even be necessary any more since the last update moved it to another part of the page. --UroguyTMZ 20:47, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
Ah I see now. Well anyone can weigh in on a conversation on NPOV and direct a conflict towards civil resolution. It doesn't take a sysop. But I would be happy to add something to the discussion if you feel you need some backup or something. Suburb NPOV discussion does tend to turn heated at times. ~Vsig.png 21:10, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
I posted a short explanation of NPOV Suburb News to the author of the original edits. No protection required. MOving to Recent Actions. ~Vsig.png 05:21, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the posting. --UroguyTMZ 05:23, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Suggestion:20111029 Corpse Dragging

Early cycling criteria was reached, thus it was cycled as Dupe. Therefore, this is a scheduled protection. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 00:44, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

One: you don't need to report this. Two: use a level 3 header, chump. Three: you didn't need to report this. annoying 06:27, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
I know I don't need to report it, but I feel scheduled things should be documented as well. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 02:02, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Flowers of Disease

Added a notice about the rebooted version Flowers of Decay at the top, as it was requested from me on the FOD forums. -- Spiderzed 19:33, 19 October 2011 (BST)
