Semi-protected pages

Reasons for semi-protecting pages include:

  • Avoiding problems on critical pages, e.g. the top ten pages
  • Avoiding vandalism on previously vandalized pages or pages with a history of edit wars
  • Avoiding anonymous or disruptive editors from editing on controversial topics
  • Ensuring very new editors do not change documentation without discussion
