The most vulnerable need a little extra protection

See also: Special:Protectedpages & Project:Protected page policy

This is the list of protected pages on Wikivoyage. Administrators who protect a page should list it here with the reason it was protected so that others can see the reasons and comment.

A fully protected page can only be edited by administrators. Semi-protected pages can be edited by any autoconfirmed user, but not anonymous or newly registered users.

Permanent full protection[edit]

  • Main Page as the most high-profile page on the site
  • All WT-en and WV-en user pages, for attribution purposes.
  • Everything in the Mediawiki: space, plus User:.../*.js and User:.../*.css, hard-protected by core MediaWiki code as they modify the wiki interface.

Permanently salted pages[edit]

Permanently protected redirects[edit]

For non-article spambot magnets. None currently.

Permanent semi-protection[edit]

  • Wikivoyage:Travellers' pub — edit=default & move=sysop. This is enough of a main portal where I think we should give it some level of protection against move vandalism. And if I'm not mistaken, there will never be a reason to move it. --(WT-en) Peter Talk 00:02, 4 April 2009 (EDT)
  • Talk:Main Page - per Talk:Main Page#The vast majority of edits to this page are from spambots, whose section title goes a long way in explaining the rationale. To further quote from that discussion: "Is it really that much of a hurdle for the tiny (in fact, as yet nonexistent) subset of new editors who have a problem with or question about the Main Page to have to establish an account and/or do the minimal work required to achieve autopatroller status before taking their concerns [t]here?" -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 23:26, 16 August 2017 (UTC)

Main page templates[edit]

Semi-protected per Main Page rationale above.

Other templates[edit]

Temporary semi-protection[edit]

These protections should be reviewed periodically and removed as soon as possible.

There are no temporarily semi-protected pages at this time.
