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.

Suggestion:20150915 Zombies Can Eat in the Dark

Am I correct in understanding that undecided or rejected suggestions are scheduled protections, but peer reviewed ones aren't? Bob Moncrief EBDW! 01:04, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

They're scheduled...kind of, apparently. The schedule apparently never got updated after the suggestions system was revised to have separate pages for separate suggestions, so it still refers to suggestions using the old system, rather than how we do things now. We still process them as scheduled, regardless, however. Aichon 14:26, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
Oh, and I went ahead and protected it. Aichon 14:27, 8 October 2015 (UTC)
I edited the schedule to bring it in line with the current system. If someone wants to misconduct me for not going through policy voting, have at it. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bob Moncrief (talkcontribs) 15:15, 8 October 2015‎.
I will git you for that and for not signing on an admin page. We will see us again as Misarbitrarycourt, the highest law in the land! -- Spiderzed 17:23, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

User:Revenant/Sig 3

If you wouldn’t mind, could you please revert to this cleaner version (#5) → ЯЭV⁠€⁠NΛИ(23:10, 6 October 2015 (UTC))

As this was all about a stop-gap measure for damage control (and the requested version is clearly within sig policy), I have humoured your request. -- Spiderzed 23:15, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
Honestly I’m tempted to say I’m not sure I’m responsible enough for a templated sig, but really it’s not like I have to sign with that particular template, it’s just the easiest to fuck with (due to installed base).
Also, now I’ve sobered up and seen some more screenshots I realise that yes, it had to go. G̰̮͜o̺͝od̪̯͎͡b̩̱͈̫ͅy҉̝̱̘͓ȩ̝̝,͖͔̤̮̖̟ ̭s͉͇̗̖̞̦͓w̠͟ee͏̙̱̘t͈͔ ̴̱p̭̳͉̱̟̠ŕ͓̝͖̼̳̝í̱̩n̙̗͟c̺é̟͙!̥͎͙ ЯЭV⁠€⁠NΛИ 23:28, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

User:Revenant/Sig 2

In response to the wiki-breaking nature of Revenant's latest signature, the fact that he was told it was breaking the wiki by more than one person (including screenshots), the fact that he has continued to post using the signature, and the fact that he has been edit warring with those who are trying to revert it back to a non-wiki-breaking state, I've gone ahead and protected his signature as a temporary measure, and as a courtesy to him since he expressed annoyance at his election sig being used (check the edit comment on the first link above), I went ahead and reverted it to the signature he was using prior to that. We'll give it some time for things to cool down before unprotecting it. Aichon 15:56, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Yes, this is sensible. --  AHLGTG THE END IS NIGH! 21:09, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
I knew there was a good reason I left it protected in the first place. Psyduck ЯЭV⁠€⁠NΛИ You rated this wiki '1'! Great job, go hog wild!|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 22:58, 6 October 2015 (UTC)


Apparently at some point I decided to protect my sig, and declined to de-protect it before requesting demotion, possibly so as to make it less likely that I would change it.

While an amusing prank played on me by my past self, recent viewing of certain archives on a low-spec machine has made me realise just how much of a performance drain it can be in the right (wrong?) circumstances, and thus I request the page be de-protected so that I can alter it to something more suitable.

Due to the apparent lack of formal procedures for de-protection of a page, and the importance of this request, I hereby sign it in quintuplicate:

Thank you kindly, gentlemen! ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 13:18, 9 September 2015 (UTC)


Can you perhaps add a link to the Sysop Archives at the bottom, maybe under "Job Queue" at the end of Administration Information? It's not exactly necessary but I at least wouldn't mind it being there. A ZOMBIE ANT 11:08, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

Good call. Done. Aichon 16:26, 7 September 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. A ZOMBIE ANT 00:04, 8 September 2015 (UTC)

The Goth Store

There's an ongoing revert war and dispute over the page. I'm requesting protection to put a stop to the reversions and to keep the page off-limits til things get sorted out. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 16:35, 24 August 2015 (UTC) Done Posting elsewhere with pertinent information. --RosslessnessWant to complete a dangerous mission? 15:32, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Some Admin-y Things

Hey guys! I don't qualify for sysop or I'd nominate myself and do these, so instead you get a return of my nagging.

Bob Moncrief EBDW! 21:42, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Oh also, shouldn't Aichon have been up for RE on August 1st? And Boxy this coming Tuesday. Unless I'm misunderstanding one of the policy changes I missed? Bob Moncrief EBDW! 21:44, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
You are correct.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:04, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
I'm up, breadcrumbs were added, and I also added a link to his 'crat promotion on Spider's sysop archive page since it was missing there too. I'll keep reading through Bob's recent edits and making changes as time permits, but I can't get to the promotions at the moment, so someone else will need to handle them. Aichon 15:49, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
Just to come back around on this, I did get the promotions today since I noticed no one else had in the meantime. Aichon 18:17, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

Main Page

In death, the city stirs. Its borders still locked down after a sudden government quarantine a decade ago, Malton's trapped civilians make their way through the derelict buildings, surviving the changing seasons to rebuild their fragmented society from the rubble upwards. --VVV RPGMBCWS 05:07, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

God yes. A ZOMBIE ANT 11:55, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
Yes, done. Any other changes before I cycle? --RosslessnessWant to complete a dangerous mission? 17:12, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
On second look, yeah. The game says Military cleanup squads, not Military clean-up squads. Also, clawing through makeshift barricades and diversions could have a link to Barricades. --VVV RPGMBCWS 21:51, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
Done both. Aichon 18:10, 27 July 2015 (UTC)


can someone unprotect my user page ? asking for a friend --hagnat 21:39, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

Done. Aichon 05:16, 4 June 2015 (UTC)

Template:Developing Suggestions Intro

I've semi-protected the template because it just got accidentally mangled and there isn't really a need for new users to edit it. (TBH I was surprised that such a high-profile template was completely unprotected yet.) -- Spiderzed 15:55, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
