Proposed: Protection

a policy similar to wikipedia:Wikipedia:Protection policy, where pages are only protected if they are repeatedly vandalised or if there is an edit war —X1011 04:19, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

see also Wikia's advice against protecting the main page and metawikipedia:Protected pages considered harmful. —X1011 03:42, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

It will be noted --Templarian 04:06, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Special:Protectedpages, We only have 3 pages protected, and 2 files. The main page will most likely always be protected, please use the discussion as you are now to point out suggestions. Thanks and hopefully this answers your question. --Templarian 13:13, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

we currently have 5 protected pages (one is move-protected only) and 2 protected files.

there is no consensus yet on whether the main page will be protected indefinitely. see Talk:Main Page#Protection.

i have not posed a question. i have proposed a policy. you have not yet stated whether you agree or disagree with it. if you state that you disagree, please explain why.

Proposed: Redirects

i don't think we should delete redirects. see wikipedia:Wikipedia:Redirect#harmful for the reasoning. in our case, we also have redirects from the old wiki to preserve. —X1011 08:33, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

We killed the old wiki. Also most page movements are done to pages that are roughly very new. Some redirects have been left if they are for larger pages, but all internal links are redirected and that page becomes orphaned internally. --Templarian 04:06, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

the old wiki is still up, and there are links to it from other sites. i'm ok with deleting new redirects; we can add an exception for that to the policy. —X1011 05:06, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

All pages moved from the old wiki to the new wiki should have had redirects added on the old wiki. No exceptions. -- Rod

yes, that is part of the reason i want to preserve redirects within this wiki. —X1011 05:38, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
