Revision as of 22:53, 29 September 2006

In order to protect a page from vandalism and other kinds of undesirable edits, the MediaWiki software provides two possible remedies (apart from page reversion, after the fact):

  1. Protection: Limiting editing of a page to administrators only.
  2. Semi-protection: Limiting editing of a page to registered users only.

The exact policies under which a page at this wiki can/should be protected or unprotected (actions which can only be performed by administrators) have not been worked out yet.

See Wikipedia's Protection policy and Semi-protection policy for how they do it.
