Description Danny B. 2006-10-14 11:29:48 UTC
Please add Special:Protectedpages on the same principle as Special:Ipblocklist -
it should display all active locks of all types.

Table structure such as following would be great as well as sorting by any
column but "reason" and "by" such as Special:Imagelist for quicker orientation.

|  edit |  move |          |                  |                     |            |
+---+---+---+---+ pagename |      since       |        reason       |     by     |
| A | S | A | S |          |                  |                     |            |
| * |   | * |   | Foo      | 2006-10-15 12:34 | Only for registered | User:Admin |
| * | * | * | * | Bar      | 2006-11-22 23:45 | Only for sysops     | User:Admin |

Comment 1 Rotem Liss 2006-10-14 11:35:06 UTC
About the proposal: it's not possible. The best we can do is the following:
* Page Name (restrictions e.g. edit=autoconfirmed:move=sysop)

The one who protected the page, the reason for the protection, and the time of
protection are not stored in a table like "ipblocks" - only in "logging", since
23 December 2004, and before that in text pages, not in the database. The
protections are only stored in the table "page", as the column
"page_restrictions", without any other information. Therefore this proposal is
impossible to implement.

Of course, the text itself was stored in the database, but the structured data
about the protection was not stored there.
