Protection[edit]

Hey Dinoguy1000. I know this was discussed on Discord a bit, but I thought I would bring it to the wiki. To me, it doesn't seem like this high of a protection level is necessary and it stops all users who aren't directors from editing the template. First of all, it only has just over 200 transclusions, so it's not like {{Msgbox}} with thousands of transclusions. Second, there are many non-directors who have made significant changes to the template (in fact, it was created by a non-director), and it would be annoying for others to have to ask a director anytime an edit needs to be made to it. Third, there's never been a registered user who's made a disruptive edit to it, the only time it was ever vandalized was by one IP. I could lower the protection myself now, but I don't really want to start an admin-action edit war. :P-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta JE2 BE2.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta JE1 BE1.png 12:26, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

Protection changed to temporary semiprotection. If you find this action objectionable, I'm sure Gamepedia staff and local bureaucrats will be happy to see me demoted. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 13:23, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. I think what you did was appropriate - why do you think that you could possibly be demoted over that? I'm certainly happy to see you as an admin and I know others feel the same way. I don't see why we would have to have a huge discussion before undoing an admin action. I do think indefinite semi-protection would be reasonable, as one vandalistic edit to this will affect many pages and an unregistered user would very rarely, if ever, need an edit to be made to this template..-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta JE2 BE2.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta JE1 BE1.png 14:43, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
This isn't a big enough deal to get worked up over, so whatever. ディノ千?!☎ Dinoguy1000 18:30, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
Agreed.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta JE2 BE2.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta JE1 BE1.png 18:37, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
