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.

Protection Queue

This and ALL related pages to prevent damage from an issue arising within the group polotik. ConndrakaTAZM CFT 22:10, 22 October 2009 (BST)

Link doesn't work.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:13, 22 October 2009 (BST)
Fixed the link, enjoy your protection request.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:15, 22 October 2009 (BST)
To clarify, by related pages do you mean the pages in the Dunell Hills Police Department namespace? What about the pages listed in the DHPD namespace? Those in the latter need to be moved anyway, and I imagine some of those redirects are extraneous. -- User:The Rooster RoosterDragon User talk:The Rooster 23:18, 22 October 2009 (BST)
Holy jesus... What a fuck up... --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 01:05, 23 October 2009 (BST)
It's been a long time since I've been on the wiki so please excuse any formatting goofs. I'm the leader of the DHPD and I support this request. FmrPFCBob 01:50, 23 October 2009 (BST)
Indeed it is a fuck up...Since I gave up Wiki editing almost two years ago there was a massive change in the ways things were planned and the way they are done...with about half a dozen different people (some of them not even related to the group) editing without any long term plan or goal. So yes...any assistance in getting this shit cleaned up will be appreciated but for now...Lock it down. We'll get an approved list of editors together here shortly.

Recent Actions


The last deletion request (Template:Shall Not Pass) has been placed below the navigation template. Unless there's some reason for that, shouldn't the template be at the bottom?--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 07:56, 15 October 2009 (BST)

And this one doesn't have a navigation template at all.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 07:57, 15 October 2009 (BST)
Did you check the top of the page, perchance? Cyberbob  Talk  08:10, 15 October 2009 (BST)
Hmm, very odd. I could have sworn that wasn't there a moment ago. Ah well.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 08:14, 15 October 2009 (BST)

FedCom: Urban Dead

Add a link to FedCom/Awards on the talk of FedCom please.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 16:09, 8 October 2009 (BST)

Done. Cyberbob  Talk  23:44, 8 October 2009 (BST)


Adding a link to The North West War - DEA on their talk page ?--RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 15:54, 8 October 2009 (BST)

Done. Cyberbob  Talk  23:44, 8 October 2009 (BST)

Liberation of Crossman Department/Archive

As below, please can it be linked from Talk:Liberation of Crossman Department--RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 15:45, 8 October 2009 (BST)

Done. Cyberbob  Talk  23:44, 8 October 2009 (BST)

Talk:The Dead

More of the same as before, really. Could you put these two links in a new section at the bottom of Talk:The Dead? That way, they become unorphaned, and The Dead's talk page is thus the best place to link them from.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 07:03, 8 October 2009 (BST)

Done. Cyberbob  Talk  23:44, 8 October 2009 (BST)

First Siege of Caiger Mall

I would like the heading "===Survivor Critical Mass===" to be replaced with "===Survivor [[Critical Mass]]===". The link would make Critical Mass unorphaned, and would also provide further context to the expression as is used in the Caiger article.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:18, 7 October 2009 (BST)

I just realised that I made critical mass unorphaned with this post. But I'd still like it if it had a real usage.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:19, 7 October 2009 (BST)
I've edited in the link to the paragraph, instead of the header. Better for linking... 'n' stuff -- boxy talkteh rulz 01:52 8 October 2009 (BST)


This is Rohndogg1 and I wrote The Newbie's Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse I would like to ask that it be un-protected so that I may revise it as I have changes to be made to it. I will then leave it un-protected so you won't have to worry about doing that again. --Rohndogg1 13:49, 2 October 2009 (BST)

Done -- boxy talkteh rulz 04:11 3 October 2009 (BST)

EVIL's September History Archive

Just there to be pretty now. I'd like it to be preserved. -Poodle of doom 02:24, 3 October 2009 (BST)

Done. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 02:34, 3 October 2009 (BST)

UDWiki:Administration/Deletion Schedule

I need this page protected, and have the entire guidelines section switched by a simple template call for this page. Makes it easier to keep track when a new schedule is added, by whom, and to use this anywhere else in the wiki. --People's Commissar Hagnat [talk] [wcdz] 21:47, 2 October 2009 (BST)

One of these days you're going to get over your fetish for templates, Hagnat - or at least this obsession with doing literally everything without so much as a by-your-leave beforehand. I pray that day comes soon. Cyberbob  Talk  22:11, 2 October 2009 (BST)
I guess you wouldnt like to see me repeat this feat with the protection schedule then :P --People's Commissar Hagnat [talk] [wcdz] 22:38, 3 October 2009 (BST)
No I would not. If DDR doesn't get to it first then I will. Cyberbob  Talk  22:53, 3 October 2009 (BST)
I was *this* close to reverting this, it is nothing less than unnecessary tripe. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 02:31, 3 October 2009 (BST)


An often created and deleted page that I've redirected to the help page that will tell newbies how to link properly, and avoid creating such silly pages -- boxy talkteh rulz 14:53 1 October 2009 (BST)

Here's the link to avoid redirection -- boxy talkteh rulz 14:55 1 October 2009 (BST)
Bigger chance they'll just ruin the help page now ;) Done. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 15:11, 1 October 2009 (BST)
'D'oh! -- boxy talkteh rulz 04:11 3 October 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

Note: The archive for Scheduled Protections can be found here.
