From The Urban Dead Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


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.

It's an archive. I'll like to see this protected as I'll be doing all the archiving in the foreseeable future (and it shouldn't be edited anyway.) Linkthewindow  Talk  13:04, 19 July 2009 (BST)

Community based archives like this don't get protected. In the long term, it's a bad idea. For example, GA's. Cheese and I were the only ones who cycled them but you just don't do it, let the community have input if they'd like. --ϑϑℜ 14:07, 19 July 2009 (BST)
No no no. Unless you want to go through protection edit requests (totally forgotten what that page is called right now) every time you want to edit it. --xoxo 14:16, 19 July 2009 (BST)
oh lol its this page. Well there you go.--xoxo 14:17, 19 July 2009 (BST)

Point taken (from both DDR and Jed.) Withdrawn. Linkthewindow  Talk  14:18, 19 July 2009 (BST)


Could I please have my userpage unprotected? - User:Whitehouse 00:24, 16 July 2009 (BST)

Done. Hope you weren't waiting too long. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 01:43, 16 July 2009 (BST)

Unprotection request

Could my sig page be unprotected? --Darth Sensitive Talk W! 02:31, 11 July 2009 (BST)

Done (+ minor formatting fix of request.) Linkthewindow  Talk  02:40, 11 July 2009 (BST)

New suggestion templates layout

Its not perfect by any means, but all parts of both templates now seem to be in agreement about what the procedure is. Corss posted from talk suggestions. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 20:09, 1 June 2009 (BST)

What exactly are you requesting? -- boxy talkteh rulz 11:24 9 June 2009 (BST)
Edits to each of the two templates. I'll junk the suggestions example and repost the two templates. hold on. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 11:27, 9 June 2009 (BST)

Let's go back to this request, it's gone stagnant. Because I'm short on time, Ross, could you please produce the template which is to be changed also, and (I'm pretty sure it's out there) a dif on the old template and your proposed edits, please? DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 03:39, 23 June 2009 (BST)

yep. Later today. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 13:11, 25 June 2009 (BST)

Denied! Come back later Ross, when you have the time to bring me those dif links, etc. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 03:50, 1 July 2009 (BST)


Humourous suggestion. I'd do it myself but given the number of people that obviously want it to stay that would be pretty much begging for a Misconduct case and I don't feel like the drama. --Cyberbob 03:34, 1 July 2009 (BST)

Done. My net was lagging so I couldn't get to this sooner. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 03:42, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Why protect it so quickly? It's only been up for an hour. --Haliman - Talk 03:44, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Why not? MoonShine is free to resubmit it in Humorous Suggestions but it can't remain as a standalone page. --Cyberbob 03:46, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Oh sorry. I'm not familiar with the rules with Humorous suggestions. *Walks out of page.* --Haliman - Talk 03:47, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Perhaps acquainting yourself with the ruleset involved in a situation you wish to get outraged over before spitting the dummy might be a good idea in future. --Cyberbob 03:50, 1 July 2009 (BST)
Yep. --Haliman - Talk 03:50, 1 July 2009 (BST)

Protections Scheduling Queue

Protection Scheduling requests should be requested in the same general format as Deletions. Votes will occur in the same general manner, and like deletion scheduling requests will be voted on for two (2) weeks, as judged by the initial datestamp. Valid votes are:

  • Yea - Approval of Schedule Request
  • Nay - Disapproval of Schedule Request

Historical Events

I'm not sure why historical groups are scheduled protections but historical events aren't. In a historical sense they both have the same principles behind why they should be protected upon becoming classed as Historical.

Basically, I'm proposing that all current and future events that are Historical (as per Historical Events voting) are to be protected on sight. --ϑϑℜ 10:57, 20 July 2009 (BST)

  1. Yep - I'm pretty sure no one would throw a fit if we protected them anyway, however. Linkthewindow  Talk  14:25, 20 July 2009 (BST)
  2. Yes --ϑϑℜ 14:26, 20 July 2009 (BST)
    I also apologise for the overuse of the histroical word 'historical' in my historical proposal. Historical. --ϑϑℜ 17:45, 20 July 2009 (BST)
  3. Yes--C Whitty 17:03, 20 July 2009 (BST)
  4. Yes --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 17:31, 20 July 2009 (BST)

  6. Yes --Orange Talk 18:37, 20 July 2009 (BST)

  8. Yes - Leave the talk pages open though maybe? --Darth Sensitive Talk W! 04:36, 21 July 2009 (BST)
