Why semi-protect when one can pending-change-protect?.[edit]

Semi-protection completely disables edits by new users (only possible via bulky proposal), while pending-change-protection does allow them to edit, just limited by a barrier of pending edits?. Maybe, some new users actually want to improve the page. --IChance2 (talk) 19:06, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Because pending changes is all but useless, is a technical nightmare, creates more work, disturbs users on their watchlist, and frequently will completely mangle page histories. It’s more trouble than it’s worth: reverting live vandalism is easier and much less work in most cases. TonyBallioni (talk) 19:18, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

top padlock icon code[edit]

I was wondering if we could place the template top mini-icon code for each padlock section so editors can see what the correct code is for each padlock. Cheers. Govvy (talk) 12:39, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
