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.

I assume you're talking about all the images in Category:Building Information Center/Images? (Except maybe this one.) I'd be in favor of protection. Anyone else want to comment? Bob Moncrief EBDW! 17:40, 24 April 2013 (BST)
yes, these images --hagnat 18:49, 24 April 2013 (BST)
Go ahead. -- Spiderzed 22:38, 15 May 2013 (BST)
Just checked, and they already show as protected to me. Hmm... Bob Moncrief EBDW! 02:34, 16 May 2013 (BST)
Whoops, looks like somebody got to this almost a month ago. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 05:35, 16 May 2013 (BST)

Historical Groups and Historical Events

On both pages,

Within two weeks of a nomination, the group must be approved by 2/3 of the voters, with a minimum of 15 voters for a nomination to pass. The only allowable votes are Yes and No

is poorly-written, confusing and has little bearing on what actually occurs in reality. Historical status for groups and events are never decided within two weeks --- that decision occurs after two weeks. The sentence should be rewritten to something like this:

Voting will last for exactly two weeks following nomination. To be successful, a group must by approved by 2/3 of eligible voters, with a minimum of 15 voters for a nomination to pass. The only allowable votes are Yes and No.

which is much clearer and avoids awkward problems as seen here.

Why live with a mistake if you can fix it in like two seconds? -MHSstaff 05:48, 5 April 2013 (BST)

I've already commented on this on my talk page. I actually just noticed another issue: "a minimum of 15 voters for a nomination to pass" is ambiguous; are 15 total voters required for passage, or 15 voters for required? I would like other sysops to comment on the issue before I carry anything out. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 06:11, 5 April 2013 (BST)
Voting will last for exactly two weeks following nomination. To be successful, a group must by approved by 2/3 of eligible voters to pass. A minimum of 15 votes must be cast for the vote to be valid. The only allowable votes are Yes and No.
Updated. It has always been at least 15 votes cast are needed (so 10-5 is ok but 10-4 is not). Obviously replace group with event for the event page. -MHSstaff 06:21, 5 April 2013 (BST)
I'd go for this change. No need for a full policy if we're just updating it for the sake of clarity on how it already works. In fact, looking through the older documents on the wiki, the whole point of policies in the first place were to put in writing the way that things were already working, so this is in line with that intent.
