Regarding the full protection for "Templates that have a great potential for vandalism through their inclusion on many pages." Isn't this statement a contradiction to the rule: "Do not protect pages preemptively." I think these templates should NOT be under full protection unless the templates are known to be under attack from vandalism. Even then, it should be fall under Semi-protection (temporary or indefinite). Although editting the template may affect many pages, the changes could be beneficial to the template, and to RuneScape Wiki. Limitting this to admins (by using full protection) goes against the Editors are equal policy.   az talk   09:48, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

I agree. Semi-protection should be up unless those vandal-ers are waiting for 4 days to break the nice scripts. There are always some minor points that powerful admins would miss, after all, they are human beings. =P XDRAGONAITE +Saradomin's Book of Wisdom.png 14:31, 27 July 2008 (UTC)
