Protect a topic summary[edit]

The topic summary for Topic:Xuaj7i4ajtzj3pem has been vandalized a lot for some reason. Could someone semi-protect it or the entire topic? Aaron Liu (talk) 12:01, 8 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

Yes Done I've semi-protected the thread for six months. Jdforrester (talk) 14:26, 8 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Jdforrester I don't think that worked. Aaron Liu (talk) 22:38, 10 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Aaron Liu: Well, that's unhelpful. Apparently this was never implemented: phab:T113902. Jdforrester (talk) 21:00, 14 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
Thanks, that was helpful! According to that, you could maybe create an edit filter, sort of like Special:AbuseFilter/58 but for the edit-topic-summary action and target that specific page. Aaron Liu (talk) 21:12, 14 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
That seems like a massive overreaction. The topic is now resolved and there's been no vandalism for several days, so hopefully it will just die down. * Pppery * it has begun 22:27, 14 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
It's only been two days, though I agree that we should watch it first. Aaron Liu (talk) 22:30, 14 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
This seems to have died now. For future reference it appears summary edits are prevented if you protect the entire board, even though they aren't if you protect only the topic. * Pppery * it has begun 02:32, 26 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

Semi protect Snippets/*[edit]

There were some IP edits for Snippets/*. Some bad users may inject these snippets with security vulnerability.--حبيشان (talk) 06:24, 15 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

We don't generally protect pages, especially entire classes of pages, preemptively. This seems a bit like scaremongering to me. * Pppery * it has begun 15:20, 15 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
