Does anyone know if full-protecting Project:Current issues will prevent non-admins from creating new topics on it? If so, is there any way to full-protect just the board description? This seems to be a spam/vandalism magnet.

Full-protecting Project:Current issues?

Aah, of course there's a Phab task for this. Thanks for the pointer!
Although this could be done in the meantime using AbuseFilter; there's already an abuse filter that prevents IPs from editing the board description of any Flow board
Right, I didn't even think of abuse filters for this. I don't have much experience writing filters, so it'd probably be best for someone else to write one for this.
I've repurposed this filter that was affecting only Project:SupportDesk to also affect all namespaces other than user talk pages, since other boards are also target of this nonsense (help, project, and even categories)
