Semi-protected page

Shortcuts: UN:PP, UN:PROTECT
Uncyclopaedia is made around/with the principle that everybody can edit it. It’s all here. However, there are different levels of protection. There will be a protection icon in the middle of the page. Putting your mouse on the icon shows a tooltip that says, “This page is protected.” Clicking on it takes you to this page. You may put an edit request on the talk page.

Overview

  • Full protection protects the page from editing except by administrators.
  • Semi-protection protects the page from editing and allows only autoconfirmed users to edit.
  • Template protection protects the page from editing and allows only people in the template editors group and administrators.
  • Extended-confirmed protection (or 50/300 protection) protects the page from editing except by extended confirmed users. It is used when semi-protection fails to stop.
  • Upload protection protects the file from overwriting except by an administrator. Upload protection does not protect the file from editing.
  • Move protection protects the page from moving except by administrators. Move protection does not protect the page from editing. It does if the page is protected from editing, too.
  • Creation protection protects the page from being created. An administrator must choose any type of protection—full protection, semi-protection, template protection, or extended confirmed protection.

Types of protection

Full protection

Shortcuts: UN:FULL, UN:BROWNLOCK
Full-protection-shackle.svg Full protection protects the page from editing. It only allows administrators to edit. It’s unlikely if a page is protected only from editing. It’s also used for move protection. You may request an edit by adding {{edit-protected}} on the talk page.

Semi-protection

Shortcuts: UN:SEMI, UN:SILVERLOCK
Semi-protection-shackle.svg Semi-protection allows only users 4/10 to edit (autoconfirmed). You may request an edit by adding {{edit-semi-protected}} on the talk page.

Template protection

Shortcuts: UN:TPROT, UN:PINKLOCK

Extended confirmed protection

Shortcuts: UN:ECP, UN:BLUELOCK
Extended-protection-shackle.svg Extended-confirmed protection or 50/300 protection allows only people 50 days with 300 edits to edit. It can be used when semi-protection has failed to stop. You may request an edit by adding {{edit-extended-protected}} on the talk page.

Pending changes protection

Shortcuts: UN:PCPP, UN:WHITELOCK
Pending-protection-shackle.svg Pending changes protection allows anonymous users to edit only when the changes have been reviewed by a pending changes reviewer. Administrators can accept changes and can edit even when the changes haven’t been reviewed.

Move protection

Shortcuts: UN:MOVP, UN:GREENLOCK
Move-protection-shackle.svg Move protection protects the page from being moved and allows moving only by administrators. Move protection won’t protect the page from being edited unless it’s protected from editing, too. An administrator must choose any type of protection—full protection, semi-protection, extended protection or template protection.

Upload protection

Shortcuts: UN:UPLOAD-P, UN:PURPLELOCK
Upload-protection-shackle.svg Upload protection protects the file from being overwritten except by an administrator. An administrator must choose any type of protection—full protection, semi-protection, extended protection, or template protection.

Creation protection

Shortcuts: UN:SALT, UN:SKYBLUELOCK
Create-protection-shackle.svg Creation protection protects the title from being created except by an administrator. An administrator must choose any type of protection—semi-protection, full protection, extended protection, or template protection. Creation protection is also known as salting.

Cascading protection

Shortcuts: UN:CASCADE, UN:TURQUOISELOCK
Cascade-protection-shackle.svg Cascading protection is applied to such pages, like the Main Page and other kinds of pages. If a page, file or template is transcluded in a cascade-protected page, it is also cascade protected as well. You can put an edit request on the talk page.

Office protection

Shortcuts: UN:UMF-PRO, UN:BLACKLOCK
Office-protection-shackle.svg Office protection is a type of protection level where the Uncyclomedia staff protect the page.
