Description Duncan Harris 2005-11-25 14:23:15 UTC
Some people's user pages are protected against vandalism.

Some of these users are not admins and therefore cannot edit their own user
pages without the assistance of an admin.

Users should be able to edit protected pages that they "own" in their userspace,
e.g.  http://en.wikipedia.org/User:Example_user and
http://en.wikipedia.org/User:Example_user/subpage

However, the user should still not be allowed to move them as they could move
them into the main namespace and cause disruption.

If a page is protected, it's done for a reason.
Comment 2 Duncan Harris 2006-04-02 09:26:51 UTC
Yes.  That reason is that a non-admin gets their user page vandalised, requests
its protection and gets it protected but then can't edit it.

Then don't protect it.
