In order to protect a page from vandalism and other kinds of undesirable edits, the MediaWiki software provides two possible "proactive" remedies (as opposed to the retroactive remedy of page reversion):

Protection 
Limits editing of a page to administrators only.
Semi-protection 
Limits editing of a page to registered users only.

Currently the entire Iron Chariots wiki is semi-protected. The exact policies under which full protection can or should be applied to, or removed from, a page (actions which can only be performed by administrators) have not been worked out yet.

See Wikipedia:Protection policy and Wikipedia:Semi-protection policy for how they do things.
