Description MZMcBride 2007-12-08 19:12:10 UTC
Currently, wikis like are using a cascading protection hack to protect certain page titles. An extension has been written that allows page titles to be blocked using regex. It would significantly improve pages like <>.

At least as a stop-gap measure, this extension could greatly simplify the protected titles system. If later on, a new, more robust system is developed, even better. But this seems to be the best solution at the moment.
