Description Waldir 2007-10-14 10:07:32 UTC
The community on the Portuguese Wikipedia has decided to semi-protect the whole Image: namespace, here: [[pt:Wikipedia:Esplanada/propostas#proteger domínio imagem contra IP's]]. The reasoning of the request is that the images are being transferred to Commons, and there are only a few hundreds left. The pages are target to frequent edits by IPs that don't realise that the images are stored elsewhere. That is, the pages are constantly being recreated. But since there can still be notes left in the discussion pages about copyright infringements and other problems, the idea was to leave Image Discussion namespace unprotected. We plan to request the full protection of both namespaces when the images are all transferred to Commons.

Set wgNamespaceProtection to:

	'ptwiki' => array(
		NS_MEDIAWIKI => array( 'editinterface' ),
		NS_IMAGE => array('editinterface' ),

=> DONE.
Comment 2 Waldir 2007-10-17 23:29:01 UTC
Hum, please note that we requested "semi-protection" only, that is, only IPs and newbies shouldnt be able to edit the namespace. Could you change that setting, please?
Comment 3 JeLuF 2007-10-18 09:29:40 UTC
OK, trying this one:

    'ptwiki' => array(
        NS_MEDIAWIKI => array( 'editinterface' ),
        NS_IMAGE => array('autoconfirmed' ),

=> DONE.
