Description (none) 2007-05-13 08:15:40 UTC
Currently, a user, who isn't an admin, can have a page semi-protected to prevent
anons and new users from editing them; however, this won't prevent other users
from modifying their pages. I would like a new protection level to be set up -
User protection, which should be doable for user pages/subpages, which would
allow the user himself to edit the page, but not other non-admin users.

All js and css pages are automatically protected like this. If it's such a big
deal, why not simply transclude a js or css page into your userpage, and have an
admin protect your userpage? Then you can edit User:Bob/myuserpage.js, which
will appear as your userpage, but no one else can.

If this is desirable on a non-Wikimedia wiki, use an extension which hooks
