On a wiki that I participate on an admin has decided to protect every single template. User:Wagnike2 of the Wikia Community Development Team wrote in a debate to restrict unregistered editors from editing the same wikia :
- "You actually can't close a wiki to unregistered contributors. One of the principles of a Wiki is that anyone can participate."
Should one admin be allowed to restrict the entire "template" namespace only to administrators to edit when no real threat of vandalism exists?
Should regular editors be able to participate in building and maintaining templates?
What is wikia's policy on this is this decision left up to each community?
