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.

  • Tempio Pausania may need protecting because Vadim Shlyakhov wrongly believes that our mapframes are 'vandalism', and keeps reverting. Suggest protecting until he/she understands Wikivoyage process. Andrewssi2 (talk) 20:39, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
Yes Done, semi protection expires 2018-01-08. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 21:00, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
User talk:Andrewssi2 is simply lying: not "our mapframes", but his persistence in his clumsy edits is vandalism --Vadim Shlyakhov (talk) 08:07, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
Making this about specific individuals isn't likely to lead to agreement or consensus. If this is about content (or layout), it's best to stay focussed on those issues alone instead of making this about personalities. K7L (talk) 12:25, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
Protection is about stopping people vandalising through edit warring. That is true vandalism, not hurting someone's feelings (as appears to be the case here) Andrewssi2 (talk) 21:22, 9 October 2017 (UTC)
