Re: page protection
Typically, it's more effective to just revert vandalism, warn the vandals, and (if they continue) block them. We prefer to have our pages openly editable whenever feasible, so protection is somewhat of a last resort for when a page is undergoing a particularly heavy level of vandalism or when such vandalism has the potential to compromise the encyclopedia (things like high-use templates). In this case, I don't think the volume of vandalism is great enough to warrant locking the page down. (ESkog)(Talk) 12:51, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
- I'm not seeing what you're talking about. Pumpkin hasn't been protected since the 7th of November. Demographics of the United States has only been vandalized four times in the last 48 hours, and the bad version has lasted a total of one minute. I think we're doing fine without resorting to page protection on this one. (ESkog)(Talk) 03:38, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
Your recent edits
Hi there. In case you didn't know, when you add content to talk pages and Wikipedia pages that have open discussion, you should sign your posts by typing four tildes ( ~~~~ ) at the end of your comment. If you can't type the tilde character, you should click on the signature button located above the edit window. This will automatically insert a signature with your name and the time you posted the comment. This information is useful because other editors will be able to tell who said what, and when. Thank you! --SineBot (talk) 11:44, 9 May 2008 (UTC)
