Some pages may be protected due to continued vandalism or continued insertion of incorrect information. They may also be protected to preserve the integrity of the wiki. The level of protection will increase as damage done to the page increases. Most protected pages are to the autoconfirmed level; however, in extreme cases, pages may be protected to Sysop level.
Pages with a gold lock have been protected because the page has been consistently vandalized or an edit war has taken place. This protection will only last for a short period of time. Only sysops may edit fully protected pages.
Permanently fully protectedEdit
Pages with a red lock are protected to Sysop level by default because they are essential in running this wiki. They will never be unprotected. These include logos and stylesheets.
Pages with a silver lock have been protected because of vandalism or controversy. This protection is only intended to be temporary. Any user above the autoconfirmed level may edit these pages.
If you see a sky blue lock in the right-hand corner of a page you want to create, it means that only sysops may create this page. The protection was inserted to prevent spam pages from being created.
Pages with a green lock have been protected to avoid the page being moved without authorization. It may be used in the event of sustained page-move vandalism, or as a prevention measure on high-use pages. Only Sysops may move pages that have been protected in this way.
