Description David Benbennick 2005-07-05 15:23:59 UTC
Images can't (currently) be moved.  It is redundant for the "Confirm 
protection" page to offer a check box "Protect from moves only".  
See, for example

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?
title=Image:Gallery.jpg&action=protect

This option should be removed when protecting images.
Comment 1 David Benbennick 2005-07-05 17:29:12 UTC
Actually, this bug isn't trivial.  We've had lots of images recently on the 
English Wikipedia that people thought were protected, but were only protected from 
page moves (i.e., totally unprotected).  This bug wouldn't matter if admins could 
tell the difference between pages that were protected from editing and pages that 
were merely protected from moves.  But they can't.  I'm restoring 
severity "normal".
Comment 2 Rob Church 2006-03-29 00:25:44 UTC
This issue is now somewhat redundant given the new protection form.
Comment 3 Aaron Schulz 2007-01-15 22:25:50 UTC
Eventually image moves may be possible, so fixing this is somewhat moot.

And now they are, if enabled :)
