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.

Requested Edits

The Dead

As representative of the True, Catholic, and Unbroken Leadership of The Dead, we would like to petition to have the above page renamed to The Dead (First Generation) or some similar variant that we may be able to reclaim our rightful group page.

Thank you. Sniper4625 (talk) 01:59, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

I remember this being a bit of a sit sandwich ten years ago, reconciling the fact that the Dead are still around but having their group page locked for historical purposes. The solution in the end was their creation of The Dead 2.0 and their original group page remaining. Only precedent I could find was here.

If the Dead continue to remain around, and their page locked, I can't see this issue really going away. There are some options... Firstly, pending any confirmation that any user is a leader of the Dead, it would be worth seriously considering moving the Historical Dead page (The Dead) to something suggested above, and giving them access to The Dead, perhaps with a suggestion they leave a notice on top of their page directing people to the Historical incarnation. Or even just turn it into a disambig.

Or, depending on how we swing on the idea that DCC deserves to have his group retain it's page, and these are a completely separate group from the original Dead, to leave the page as be, and put the onus on this "new" Dead to reconcile the fact that have a group name that can't be accessed because of the historical group.

I really don't know right now. It's been a bit difficult for me to glean exactly what's going on with these groups on the Wiki over the last month, if everyone else is like me, we could really use a backstory and some evidence as to what players represent what groups, etc. before making a decision.

To be honest I don't remember who DCC is, and dollars to donuts he's put this dead game long behind him by now, but he's a Goon from SA, we're Goons from SA, we're the same Dead as we were back then. Like I said, True, Catholic, and Unbroken. Sniper4625 (talk) 03:28, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for that summary, again, the influx of new users with fleeting activity and different conflicts has thrown me off a bit with each account. So bear with me and hopefully others will chime in with their thoughts. A ZOMBIE ANT 03:48, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

I can move The Dead to The Dead (First Generation) (and protect it) and then unprotect The Dead and leave the page blank for you, if that'd do? If other members of The Dead disagree with this, I can simply revert the changes and you guys can discuss. --  AHLGTG 00:17, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

Recent Actions


May we please have this protected please? A ZOMBIE ANT 02:43, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

Pages trancluded onto the Main Page

As per the recent vandal case where the main page was indirectly targeted, can we assess all the transcluded templates and pages and ensure they are semi-protected in case one-edit vandals may appear in future.

These are two examples of templates/pages that appear on the Main page, that were targeted today. A ZOMBIE ANT 08:45, 6 May 2018 (UTC)

I went ahead and semi-protected all pages included directly on the Main Page. I’m not a huge fan of it, since a few of them are the sorts of things that newbies should be able to participate in, but it seems like a warranted move. Aichon 14:23, 6 May 2018 (UTC)
If you are happy to take the time to list me some of the pages you aren't fully in support of and, if I find time, I'll make a notice on the top pointing them here. A ZOMBIE ANT 00:43, 7 May 2018 (UTC)
Template:Community_Projects is probably the biggest one, but UDWiki:Featured_Articles as well for me. Aichon 05:10, 7 May 2018 (UTC)
Yep, definitely featured articles. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 20:12, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

I've created a basic protection template at Template:Semi-Protect. The wording isn't as clean as I like but it should do the job for now. Feel free to tweak anything. A ZOMBIE ANT 02:42, 12 May 2018 (UTC)

The Jack

I am requesting our group and user page be made into protected status indefinitely. It does not seem a far stretch that the attempted harassment will continue once this temporary protection expires. Discussion pages can be left unprotected for the time being if other users wish to leave comments but not modify anything else. Seems more expedien tgiven recent events. Thank you --The Jack (talk) 20:37, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Protected both The Jack and User:The Jack. Aichon 22:45, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Admin Pages

To reflect the loss of a couple of sysops. UDWiki:Administration/Sysop Archives and UDWiki:Administration/Misconduct/Archive are the ones I noticed. A ZOMBIE ANT 11:23, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Done, but badly. Have I missed anything before I neaten it?--RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 12:53, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
Oops, may have neatened for you. My plan is to archive the actual demotions at the end of the year; not much need to do a sweep before then. Bob Moncrief EBDW! 13:52, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Talk Archive

User page archive

Since I am no longer a sysop, I can’t edit my user page archive that I protected while a sysop to say that I am no longer a sysop. Tongue :P

Accordingly, if one of you kindly folks could replace the line



{{Sysop|{{BASEPAGENAME}}|is a former}}

that’d be much appreciated.

Cheers! ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 10:55, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Done! Bob Moncrief EBDW! 11:50, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
