Category:Semi-protected images

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This category contains images which have been semi-protected in line with the Wikipedia:Protection policy. Semi-protection prevents an image from being edited by anonymous and newly registered users. For fully protected pages, which can be edited only by administrators, see Category:Protected images.

To add an image to this category, use {{pp-semi-protected}} or one of the more specific semi-protection templates. This should only be done if the image is in fact semi-protected.

Note that adding the template does not in itself protect the image. Conversely, protecting the page does not automatically add the template (or any other visible protected-page category linkages), which results in some pages having a "view source"-tab instead of "edit this page" and yet not showing "Semi-protected" at the bottom -- a situation new users may find rather confusing. Therefore, it is best to always add the template immediately after protecting the page.
