Wiktionary:Protected page guidelines

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

This page is linked to, whenever a protected page is edited. It should never be deleted again.

Current policy restrictions on editing protected pages for sysops:

  • None, but it should be noted that unless there is good reason to protect a page, it should be unprotected. Unprotected is best, semi-protected is acceptable if necessary, and fully protected should be avoided unless the page is a high-profile static page, or a vandalism target.

Current guidelines and recommendations:

  • When making changes to a protected template page, please insert <noinclude>{{documentation}}<noinclude> or its equivalent on the main template page and move documentation and, surrounded by "includeonly" tags, categories and interwiki links to the documentation page.
