Wikimedia genealogy project[edit]

Just wondering if you have any thoughts re: the idea of WMF hosting a genealogy project. If so, feel free to contribute to this discussion. And apologies if I have made this request before. ---Another Believer (Talk) 17:40, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Protection?[edit]

Any reason for this protection [11]? -DePiep (talk) 22:57, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi DePiep! All of the static pages in The Wikipedia Adventure are protected so that new editors going through that introductory tutorial have a consistent experience (as if this were a self-contained onboarding game rather than a cleverly hacked-together guided tour). We had vandalism on some of the minor background pages of the many created for the 'environment' of TWA and it was not caught in time to prevent new editors from having a broken experience. Most of the minor pages are unwatched except by me, as I'm the only person who created or ever edited them. And I simply am not thorough enough to catch all of the vandalism. These pages are also targets for vandalism because hundreds of new editors are regularly are taken to them during their introductory training, in such a way that they would naturally want to make test edits during the game to the interface itself. I am all for modded content, but not inside TWA itself when that effects other future players. I hope that helps explain why that and other similar pages are protected. Best, Jake Ocaasi t | c 23:24, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. Did not see this background. (I was trying ot fox [[:CAT:DUPARG}] btw.) -DePiep (talk) 23:56, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
