Jimmy Wales Speaks at Closing Ceremony of Wikimania 2014

I was able to contact the YouTube user of this file File:Jimmy Wales Speaks at Closing Ceremony of Wikimania 2014.webm and successfully got him to modify his license to a suitable free-use license so we can now have that file on Wikimedia Commons. :)

Might be a useful addition to this article.

Closed or controlled editing?[edit]

Could someone please tell me why it is not possible to edit some articles? Some sort of "controlled edit"? I am not being hostile; but it's the first time I have ever encountered this situation on Wikipedia. Is it a good idea to have all content funneled through some arbitrary gatekeeper? Probably not the best place to inquire, but I am baffled. Thanks. Lynxx2 (talk) 22:20, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

@Lynxx2: Have a look at Wikipedia:Protection policy for details on what, how, and why. I can't tell you more without knowing which article you're unable to edit. Rebbing 23:40, 9 July 2016 (UTC)
