Unprotecting some pages recently makes me think we may need a protection policy, or at least a guideline for administrators. It's my opinion that indefinite-length page protections shouldn't be applied as a counter to vandalism. We have the three-revert rule and I feel that there are other, better tools to stop vandalism - i.e., blocks on a per-user basis rather than a per-page basis. Certainly pages like World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King don't need to stay protected for years past the date they're last relevant. Any thoughts on this? --PcjWowpedia admin (TDrop me a line!C207,729 contributions and counting) 13:53, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
