I vaguely remember this being discussed in the past, just don't remember what was the decision, so I'll ask again.

How about the person setting the featured article protect it for the two day period of the featuring, or semi-protect it? That's obviously the primary target of vandals? Discuss. ~Jewriken.GIF 10:07, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Well, the header made me think "I'm voting against this", but if the protection is only for the period of time that it's on the front page, this would be a good idea. I'm not sure how bad vandalism becomes for Featured Articles, but we certainly could prevent a lot of it by protecting. Is there any way a script could be set up, like the one that features them in the first place? Sig_pic.PNG Unsolicited conversation Extravagant beauty PEEING 23:21, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
I had to deal with multiple in the last couple of days. Mostly from IPs. And yes, this is only for the featuring period. ~Jewriken.GIF 23:40, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
I have my doubts on the script. But I agree with semi-protection, because the only people that are going to vandalize it are newly registered accounts or IPs. Any more than that and users won't be able to fix things that might have to be fixed, like bad speeling or grammurs that might be spotted, etc.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 23:24 Dec 13, 2007
In agreement with what Skullthumper said. RabbiTechno 23:25, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
Somebody agrees with what I said?! This is like, a first. Maybe I should try editing Uncyclopedia while sane more often. Woohoo!  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 23:26 Dec 13, 2007
I also agree with the Doc. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 23:34, Dec 13
This is madness! I must be dreaming. Then again if I'm dreaming about going on Uncyclopedia, I've got some serious self-searching to do. Maybe I'll Google myself.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 23:38 Dec 13, 2007
I agree with one out of ten doctors. Is that you? Sig_pic.PNG Unsolicited conversation Extravagant beauty PEEING 01:33, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
Sure. But only if they use the rhythm method. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 01:58, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
/me falls into obvious trap yet again. The rhythm method? ~Jewriken.GIF 08:59, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
