Deletion

Yeah... this template is not even being used anymore. I checked "what links here", and its not on any of the pages on the wiki. Delete please? User:Austin/sig 20:42, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

I'd say no. This is mainly for protections after edit warring. So the need will come up again. It's just like the accuracy dispute template. Better to keep it.User:Matt/sig 20:44, September 20, 2009 (UTC)
Before you go through the trouble of finding all of them via 'What Links Here' check this out http://www.zeldawiki.org/Special:UnusedTemplates. Some of them need to go, I think, but the others are going to be used when needed. Sort of temporary templates, like this one will be while a page is locked. Such as Hyrule is now, but not all of the admins here get all the ducks in a row when taking this action. User:Axiomist/sig 20:48, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Icon?

Wikipedia has their "Protected page" template as an icon which appears as a lock in the upper right hand corner. What if we changed this to an icon, too? It'd be nicer than a big old banner screaming at the readers about stuff which they have no opinion :P So what does everyone think?Justin(Talk) 22:38, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

That's probably a good idea, as the Semi-Protected template is an icon, too. It's of a Small Key in Twilight Princess, which makes me think that this might be a good idea for an image, because it's a Boss Key. I'll work on the template in my over-large sandbox. —Darkness(Talk) 17:43, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
We already have Template:Semi which is an image of a small key to denote pages with autoconfirm protection...so I wouldn't be opposed to a Big Key to denote admin-level protection. I think I'll go ahead and do this.User:Justin/sig 18:15, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

Not being used on all protected pages

Why isn't this template used on all protected pages? It's not on Vilia, for example. rjd1922 (talk) 18:26, 9 May 2019 (UTC)
