Description Borgx 2008-05-06 05:52:06 UTC
I request feature that can protect tags (ex: templates such as {{afd}}, {{clean}}, {{NPOV}} on en.wiki) from being removed without protecting the whole page nor blocking the users, so that people can still editing the content but cannot remove the tags. People sometimes not intent to vandal, they are just dont want other people to criticize their writing and so that they threated as vandal.

Such a feature is available in an existing extension. ProtectSection adds the tag <protect>, and all text inside the tags cannot be removed by non-priviledged users. 

From http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ProtectSection: Sometimes wikis want to allow editing on only part of a page. ProtectSection implements <protect></protect> tags to block editing by users who are not sysops or bureaucrats. Attempts to edit text between protect tags, or to delete protect tags will result in an error message being displayed when the user tries to save the page.

You may want to discuss this extension on your local wiki. If you were to reach consensus that using this extension would fulfill your requirements, you may want to request installation of it.

Which one is the most recommended, the ProtectSection or ProtectText? How are the chance of one of these extensions being implemented on Wikimedia's wikis from the developer's point of view?
