Protection on Avengers wiki refers to giving a page a special status that only allows administrators and sysops to edit a page. There are a number of reasons that a page may be protected.

1)Permanently

  • Certain pages are protected permanently by default, for the following reasons:
  1. The page is written in plain HTML, allowing malicious scripts to be added.
  2. Vandalism of the page would be extremely disruptive, for example, changing the text of the side panel.
  3. Changes to certain pages can cause the wiki to stop working.

2)Semi-Permanently

  • Protecting the Main Page from vandalism.
  • Maintaining the integrity of copyright and license policies.
  • Maintaining the integrity of past press releases.
  • Protecting certain "system administration" pages.

3)Temporarily

  • Forcing a "cool-down" period to stop an edit war, on request.
  • Protecting a page that has been subject to persistent vandalism or persistent edits by a blocked editor.
  • Preventing changes to a page while investigating for a bug.
