Description Richard Berry 2007-02-08 16:48:35 UTC
I semi protected an article [[Football Association of Ireland]] but an
unregistered user was able to remove the protection and vandalise the page.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2007-02-08 16:50:00 UTC
Log shows no such semi-protection occuring.
Comment 2 ekb87ds02 2007-02-08 17:05:49 UTC
It appears you are not an administrator. Adding the {sprotect} or {protect}
template just adds the text indicating the page is protected to it, it doesn't
make it protected.

This is assuming you are User:LittleOldMe .
Comment 3 Richard Berry 2007-02-08 17:22:22 UTC
Yes, that's me. I feel stupid now. Thanks anyway.
