Protect site is an extension that allows Wikia Staff, the Spam Task Force, and other volunteers to temporarily restrict certain actions on a wiki to stop major instances of spam or vandalism. Local administrators can contact Wikia to request that the extension be enabled for their use.
Those with access to protect site will see a link to it in Special:SpecialPages and can use it from Special:Protectsite. The maximum amount of time one can protect an entire wiki for is 12 hours. As this tool will prevent a large number of people from editing the wiki, both good and bad, it should not be used for an extended duration. The protection should only last long enough to be able to clean everything up. Similarly, protect site is not to be used for long-term protection. Please contact Wikia staff for alternatives and other options.
