The majority of pages on a wiki should remain unprotected to encourage all users in the community to edit. It is against FANDOM's [[w:terms of use|Terms of Use]] to permanently protect large numbers of content pages.

But you still hit my phone last night
 
It was 4:52 and I got the text to prove
 
And all the recordings too
 
Don't make me tell them the truth
 
And I just drop some new merch
 
And they are selling like a God church
 
Ohio is where I'm from
 
We chew 'em like it's gum
 
We shooting with a gun
 
The tattoo just for fun
 
I Usain Bolt and run
 
Catch me at game one

==Protection levels==
Two months ago

There are three protection levels that can be chosen for each protection option. Protection levels for all protected pages can be found on [[Special:Protectedpages]] (edit, move, and upload) and [[Special:Protectedtitles]] (creation).
You didn't know my name
+
*'''Unprotected''': Allows everybody to edit and rename the page.
And now you want my fame?
+
*'''Semi-protection''': Prevents an unregistered and non-[[Help:User access levels#Autoconfirmed users|autoconfirmed]] user from uploading new file versions, editing, renaming, and/or creating the page (if it does not exist). This protection level is usually sufficient for most purposes and can be set by choosing "Block new and unregistered users" in the options list.
Bitch I'm blowin' up
+
*'''Full protection''': Limits uploading new file versions, editing, renaming, and/or creating the page (if it does not exist) to administrators and content moderators. This protection level might be appropriate for a community policy page, wiki wordmark or a favicon. It can be set by choosing "Administrators and content moderators only" in the options list.
I'm only going up
 
Now, I'm going off
 
I'm never fallin' off
 
Like Magg, who?
 
Digi who?
 
Who are you?
 
All these beefs I just ran through
 
Hit a milli in a month
 
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/jake-paul/-/its-everyday-bro.html]
 
Where were you?
 
Hatin' on me back in West Fake
 
Thinking need to get your shit straight
 
Jakey brought me to the top
 
Now, we're really poppin' on
 
Number 1 and number 4
 
That's why these fans all out the door
 
It's lonely at the top
 
So we all going
 
We left Ohio
 
Now the trio is all rollin'
 
It's Team 10, bitch
 
We back again, always first, never last
 
We the future, we'll see you in the past

I said it is everyday bro!

ProtectButton

The Protect button.

Page protection is the ability to limit who can edit a page. Administrators and Content Moderators have the ability to both protect and unprotect pages should the need arise.

Uses

The majority of pages on a wiki should remain unprotected to encourage all users in the community to edit. It is against FANDOM's Terms of Use to permanently protect large numbers of content pages.

Places where you may want to use protection may include:

  • Protecting frequently vandalized pages, such as the main page on busy communities.
  • Maintaining the integrity of the site's wordmark and favicon.
  • Protecting community policy statements.
  • Templates that contain complex code and/or are necessary for a particular wiki.

Temporary protection might be used for:

  • Enforcing a cooldown period to stop an edit war, upon request.
  • Protecting a page or image that has been a recent target of persistent vandalism.

Protection levels

There are three protection levels that can be chosen for each protection option. Protection levels for all protected pages can be found on Special:Protectedpages (edit, move, and upload) and Special:Protectedtitles (creation).

  • Unprotected: Allows everybody to edit and rename the page.
  • Semi-protection: Prevents an unregistered and non-autoconfirmed user from uploading new file versions, editing, renaming, and/or creating the page (if it does not exist). This protection level is usually sufficient for most purposes and can be set by choosing "Block new and unregistered users" in the options list.
  • Full protection: Limits uploading new file versions, editing, renaming, and/or creating the page (if it does not exist) to administrators and content moderators. This protection level might be appropriate for a community policy page, wiki wordmark or a favicon. It can be set by choosing "Administrators and content moderators only" in the options list.

Protection options

  • Edit protection: Limits who can edit a page.
  • Move protection: Limits who can rename a page. By default, the move protection level will match the edit protection level, but they can be set independently of each other as well.
  • Upload protection: Limits who can upload a new version of an existing file.
  • Create protection: Limits who can create a page that does not yet exist or has been deleted. This can be useful to prevent repeated creation of unwanted or maliciously named pages.
  • Cascading protection: This option extends full protection to all templates and files included on the page.

Step by step

Protecting pages

Article-protect
  • To protect a page, photo, template, click on the arrow on the "Edit" button next to the title to produce a dropdown menu. Then click "Protect."
  • On the protection page that then appears, you can set the desired protection level.
  • You may want the page move protection to be set at a different level than the editing protection. By default, they match. To set a different level, select the check box in the "Move" section, then choose which protection level you would like.
  • To set cascading protection, click the check box next to "Protect pages included in this page (cascading protection)."
  • Select a default reason for protection in the dropdown menu, or add in your own reason in the box below.
  • Click "Confirm" to save your changes.

Unprotect

  • To unprotect or change the protection for a specific page, use the Edit button dropdown to visit the protection page for it.
  • Remove or alter the protection options.
  • Click "Confirm" to save your changes.

Cascading Protection

Cascading protection

Confirming protection. You need to check the "cascading protection" box in order to activate cascading protection.

Cascading protection is a form of page protection which allows you to protect a page so that all templates and images on the page will also be protected without needing to protect them individually. This is useful on pages, such as a wiki main page, where most of the included images and templates are used only on that page.

To use cascading protection, just click the "protect" link as usual; cascade protect is there among normal protection options. The page must be fully protected in order to activate cascading protection.

Advice

  • Do not make the common mistake of protecting pages unnecessarily. A single vandalizing edit is not a reason to permanently protect a page against all edits.
  • Page protection levels should make sense. If a page is repeatedly vandalized by IPs, then semi-protection will stop that; full-protection is not necessary. If two established editors are having an edit war, then temporary full-protection of the page is needed.
  • Most page protections should be temporary, so that they expire when the current problem is past.
  • If IP vandalism is a problem on most or all pages on a wiki, disabling anonymous editing through WikiFeatures is a better solution than mass page protection.
  • Talk pages should not be protected except in extreme circumstances.
