Now this I something I randomly thought of last night, so I've decided to stick it here and watch it get shot down. Basically i've noticed that articles that are currently being featured tend to become targets for vandalism. An example would be this from yesterday's Why?:Use a wooden condom. Now I don't know about you, but I don't find it fair that people put so much work and effort into getting their article up to feature standards, only to have it ruined by IPs and random idiots who feel they want in on a piece of the feature action. So basically I came up with this idea: For the time that the article is on feature (From when it has been put in the queue to when it is replaced by the next article in the queue) it should be put under a 'Look but don't touch' policy. Namely it should be protected for the time that it is on feature. As soon as this period it over it would be unprotected. This would prevent damage to high quality articles and save users that revert this kind of crap a lot of time and effort. I understand this is an extra job for the admins to do, but I think it's worth it to protect the few comedy gems we have left on this site. BonSig.png (Bonner) Icons-flag-gb (Talk) Jan 13, 12:05

Great minds think alike. Personally I semi-protect all featured articles for the feature period. ~ Mordillo where is my ARSE? 12:08, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

::This might be the last time I suggest that you fix your sig. Next time, it might be painful Do I sound like Famine?!?! Damn! ~ Mordillo where is my ARSE? 13:42, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Let me try this again - please correct your signature, it's currently spewing code all over the place. Contact me if you need help. ~ Mordillo where is my ARSE? 13:50, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
As an addition to this...Do you even have a sig page? I think that's just the code and you're copying it in every time you sign. Am I right? Because if I am we can show you an easier way to do it BonSig.png (Bonner) Icons-flag-gb (Talk) Jan 13, 13:56
Me ? Sorry about that. The code was in my Nickname in my preferences. I'll go figure. Sean.hoyland 14:58, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
This is definitely needed. And I say that as both the author of the condom article and just being generally the man. - UnIdiot | Talk? | Theme - 22:19, Jan 13
