Requests for Protection

  • Portal:Main Characters
    • Nominated by  Sam McPherson  T  C  E  20:45, 15 December 2008 (PST)
      • Reason: Due to several attempts by recent editors to change Locke's status which has already been agreed on by Lostpedia's editors, I think it best to lock the page so that SysOps can monitor the statuses and therefore edit wars can be avoided. -- Sam McPherson  T  C  E  20:45, 15 December 2008 (PST)
        • I don't know if this is the place for this to go, but I disagree with locking the page because it used to be locked (ie: last year and previously) and was never updated, despite numerous requests. When it was finally unlocked the user contributions to the page were hugely valuable and I find myself concerned that locking it again would hurt the page because it wouldn't be kept up to date.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  22:47, 15 December 2008 (PST)
    • I would like to nominate that it should be locked until season 6 premieres. There is nothing to add right now and people constantly add spoilers to it.--Golden Monkey 20:26, 4 August 2009 (UTC)
  • The Lostpedia Interview:Michael Emerson
    • It needs to be protected like all interviews do. Orhan94 11:31, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Requests for Unprotection

Season 4/spoilers

Could you (pick one)

    • Delete Season 4/spoilers I'm preety sure that no one will be spoiled if someone recreates that page aftermath the deletation, and if someone posts spoilers about Locke being in the coffin or spoilers about the person who built Jacob's cabin, I agree that Season 5 and Season 6 are potential spoilers location for now but Season 4/spoilers must be deleted.

Not the template exactly, but the cascading option on it. As detailed here, there were long delays after the last two episodes aired where reliable editors were unable to update the site. Unprotecting the columns will allow quicker updates by editors immediately after an episode's airing, not days upon days. The template-within-a-template issue right now should already be enough to stir away most of the new users unaware of the spoiler policy.--Tim Thomason 05:13, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

Reply Maybe we could have rollback and above edit it. The rollback users are usually here after the US airings, and know the spoiler policy enough not to post centricity pre-air. cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 13:07, March 12, 2010 (UTC)
That's not going to work, and auto-confirmed is too wide open. The sysop who usually makes the change had commitments and couldn't watch the episode right away. Hopefully he'll be back next week and the change will happed right away. cgmv123TalkContribsE-mail 17:50, March 14, 2010 (UTC)

Unprotect season 5 main page

  • Can someone unlock the main season 5 page now, so we can edit it, and update the character appearences and season 5 episode summaries, guest list etc. like the previous season pages.


  • The name of this next episode is known, it is "[SPOILER REMOVED]". If you go to [[1]] you'll find that the name of the next episode is listed. If you could unlock this so the template can be changed to say "SPOILER REMOVED", that would be great. Lostsomniac 00:55, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
Only the immediate upcoming episode is displayd on the wiki; see LP:SP. -- CTS  Talk   Contribs 01:02, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
