Description とある白い猫 2008-04-23 14:14:47 UTC
When an article A is moved to the new name B, all content, page history, and status (such as protection level) of A is moved to B. A also becomes a redirect to B. 

If A is a protected page, when it is moved the created redirect page should be protected by default.

Maybe this is better done as a checkbox, because it doesn't seem desirable all the time.
Comment 2 とある白い猫 2008-04-24 09:25:53 UTC
A checkbox that is by default checked. Having such optional freedom would be nice. Yes, I agree with you. Another issue is that the logs for the protection are not carried to the moved page.

I protected [[User:White Cat/Protecttest1]] and moved it to [[User:White Cat/Protecttest2]]

As seen above the logs indicate nothing special has happened to [[User:White Cat/Protecttest2]] and despite this the page is protected ([edit=autoconfirmed:move=sysop]). However logs indicate [[User:White Cat/Protecttest1]] was protected and moved. There is no indication from the logs if [[User:White Cat/Protecttest1]] was unprotected at any point and despite this the page is currently not protected.

I moved quite some protected pages in my time already and the redirects were protected all the time. Marked as "Resolved" thus.
